Wellness-natural-deodorant

Hey, guys! Today’s Wellness Wednesday post is all about natural deodorant! For years now, I’ve known about natural deodorant, and I’ve heard all about how regular deodorant contains some pretty dangerous stuff. Everyone from the earthy-crunchy hippie next door to Kourtney Kardashian, have made the switch from regular deodorants to natural deodorants, and thanks to my best friend Alex, who gave me a natural deodorant as part of my birthday gift (because it’s called JASON, which is my boyfriend’s name….or because I smell, haha), I can now say that I have also made the switch (which makes me one step closer to becoming a Kardashian…we already have the same initials…..*hair...

Apartment-tour

Hey, guys! Today I’m showing you a tour of my apartment! If you’ve been following for a while, you saw my last apartment tour, but I’ve since moved, and I would also like to think that I’ve gotten a little better at decorating, too! A lot of my furniture is the same, but there are also a lot of new pieces from HomeGoods, Ikea, Target, Michaels, Urban Outfitters, and, since you know I’m a thrifty girl, we’ve even gotten a couple pieces from the side of the road! As always, shouts to my boyfriend Jay for letting me take (almost) complete control of the decorating! The apartment is a teeeensy...

thrifting-for-basics

Hey, guys! Today’s post is to show off my three new basic pieces that I bought at the thrift store, and to spread awareness that you can find perfectly good things while thrifting! As you know if you read my blog, I LOVE thrift shopping. I think it’s a great way to find super stylish pieces at prices that seriously can’t be found anywhere else. Every time I go to the thrift store, I come back with GEMS, and because I spent such little money, I’m usually way more excited about my purchases! One of my favorite things to look for when I’m thrifting are basic style pieces like solid...
