Hello, my name is Meghan and I have a candle problem. (Hi, Meghan.) Candles are such a simple and aromatic way to personalize a space. They’re calming, fairly inexpensive (when you don’t want candles from London…um, oops) and lets not forget the most important part – they’re preeeettyy. Like the candle nerd that I am, I’ve got an ongoing wishlist of candles I’m coveting at all times. Here’s a few I’d like to put on my bookshelf very soon!
I love finding perfectly constructed outfit combinations on Pinterest. There’s such a simplistic and minimalistic approach to photographing the perfect selection of pieces. Without fail, it immediately makes me want to run in my closet and find the closest pieces I have to pair together. I suppose that’s a good thing (kind of the point of outfit inspiration!) but somehow, I never look quite as cool as the clothes do against that pretty white backdrop…
Oh, 2014. This has been a year filled with some great highs and some bad lows. But when I stop and think about it, I’ve found some good this year. A list of cities I’ve spent time in: Chicago, Nashville, Atlanta, Santa Fe, Los Angeles and London. Not too shabby for my wanderlust-y soul. Started my year in the blistery cold of Chicago and ended it in the warmth of LA. I’ve been happy, sad, confused and lonely at the same time (yes, I know that’s a Taylor Swift lyric but man, she really nails it.) I’ve been surprised by people’s kindness and hurt by their rejection. But I’ve made some amazing friends, had some awesome car sing alongs and found new family in LA along the way. In short, life.
2014 can probably best be summed up like this: The other night, I scooped up a big spoonful of what I thought was mashed potatoes and ate it. Turned out it was cream cheese frosting.
Here’s a look at my year in photos. 2015, I’m ready for you!
Hard to believe it’s already that time of year again! Time to start thinking about pumpkin pie, twinkle lights and dress shopping for all those holiday parties. If you feel like being a bit thrifty this year, one way to spice up your trusty wardrobe favorites is to add some new accessories. Statement earrings are a fantastic way to add holiday sparkle to your favorite LBD. Or, if you’re looking for less traditional pieces to spice up your holiday attire, like an an ear cuff or ear chain, head over to FreshTrends where there’s a ton of stylish options. But if you’re sticking to traditional pierced earrings like me, above are a few of my favorites for the holiday party season!
I have to admit, I’m typically not much of a beauty product junkie. (Of course this doesn’t mean I don’t have an entire bathroom filled completely to the brim with products.) But I’m typically not great at finding new products and tend to use the same ones over and over again. So when I do find something new, clearly I’m always super proud of myself.
Even though I’m not terribly worried about anti-wrinkle and collagen stimulating effects, I’ve long been a fan of using Vitamin C on my skin – Whole Foods has some great Vitamin C products I’ve used for a while now. So when I found this Valentia Even Glow Vitamin C serum, I figured I’d give it a go and I was definitely not disappointed. The serum has a creamy, soft consistency and feels so rich and moisturizing. I lather it on after I’ve washed and dried my face at night and let it absorb as I sleep. You’ll definitely wake up with softer skin with just a bit more glow. And who doesn’t like that, really? As an added bonus, you’ll also go to bed with a light orange juice scent surrounding you, which I definitely don’t mind.
If you’re looking for some skin pick me up, definitely give this Valentia serum a try!
*this is a sponsored post powered by Brandbacker but my opinions, including that you’ll smell like orange juice, are completely true.
Hi, I'm Meghan. I love looking at life through my Canon Rebel and adore anything containing the word 'Demeulemeester'. I'm constantly on the hunt for flat whites, soft sweater blankets and dark chocolate.
