Views I can't get enough of and fresh powder on the slopes each day, what more could I want for a ski trip!? I love that first ride up the mountain each day and soaking up the pure silence in the snow; so refreshing and peaceful. Austin and I stayed at a cute little AirBnb this last week in Fraser, Colorado for Spring Break (probably our official "last" spring break ever, so sad). Let me tell ya, he was so patient with me on the slopes, but pushed me to improve and adventure when he knew I needed to. So much so that we accidentally ended up in basically black trees, which I ended up having to walk through because I'm a hot mess, and finished out on a blue black! At least I can say I did it haha!!
My cutie roomie and her family were there as well which was so fun to get to run into them while on the slopes. Who would have thought the first time we all went four years ago that we would end up as besties and college roommates? :)
ALSO!!! We officially started our YouTube Channel!! We are just getting the feel for all the video tech, but I am so dang excited about it! Be sure to subscribe to my channel and watch our first video to get a glimpse at slow-mo ski me and just a tiny fraction of all our laughs this last week!
There are a few questions that I get asked ALL the time!! And today I thought I'd answer them for you all and of course link my favorite products :)
Valentine's Day is so soon! It's one of my favorite holidays and I can't wait to celebrate with Austin. Last year we were super low-key and it was so fun; and yes my baby succulent is still alive! This year I have teamed up with Personal Creations to help inspire you all to find the perfect gift for your S.O., best friends, mother, or sister. They have so many different products for any type of holiday or event that you want to gift something extra special for, including photo gifts!
But, how cute is this candy heart pillow!? Stinkin' soft and perfect for snuggling, you can personalize it with different colors and a personal saying for your hunny. Of course I got pink and it might stay out a little longer past Valentine's Day and will be showing up every year form here on out :)
A big thank you toPersonal Creations for sponsoring this post!

Sam Smith's new album on repeat in my home, especially with my newest addition to my favorite little corner- my suede bluetooth Crosley Cruiser! I'm obsessed, in case you haven't seen my Instagram stories lately. I did absolutely nothing yesterday until I left my house at around 4:00 to go get a coffee and write this post. Not even the tv was turned on! Just me, some music, and my latest book Daring to Hope by Katie Davis Majors, the sequel to one of my most favorite books Kisses From Katie. Seriously go read them!! Inspiring and refreshing, and totally eye opening.
I'm such a vanilla girl!
His "okay I need to eat now" face ;)
There's something about In-N-Out that I cannot pass up! Why do we not have one here in Fayetteville??? I remember my first time at one: during spring break with my parents and it was the only place I insisted to go to while in Dallas (okay other than go see Marry Poppins and shop of course). Anyways my point is that I always make a point to go there when I am around one because I don't always want food like that or a burger so I might as well take advantage of the cheap and greasy goodness! And it's just too cute!
Shout out real quick to my awesome Austin and his always amazing photos!! My vision always comes through even better than I imagined! Give him follow!
I'm that girl with the major sleepy face in the mornings. You know, the one with the sleep marks and puffy eyes? I am also pretty strict with my nighttime routine. I get in my pjs and take my contacts out, wash my face and apply all my products, brush my teeth, and apply argan oil to the ends of my hair! I have it so down, that it really doesn't even take that long.
I found the perfect solution though for my puffy eyes! VII Code O2M Oxygen Eye Mask for all night repair is the first eye mask able to be worn for 8 hours overnight. It has a gel-like material that feels so cool and refreshing putting it on and I wake up without puffy eyes even if I didn't get enough sleep! It helps to moisturize and smooth the dainty skin under your eyes without pulling on them. Or, if I have a photoshoot or even coming up in the evening, I wear it for at least an hour while I am getting ready, to help freshen up my eyes. Check them out and take advantage of all of their extra goodies you can get with your purchase!
Stock up on these bad boys because you never know when you might need them! Perfect to slip in your bag while traveling; on the place or in your car too, you will not be disappointed!!
Thank you VII code for sponsoring this post!
Right after he said he couldn't wait to dunk me... I don't normally like to go under in rivers and lakes because I'm just weird like that. But convinced him not too :)
So yeah, I have major sensitive skin issues, but that doesn't stop me from trying new makeup all the time to find the right balance. Influenster and Laura Mercier recently sent me their new line of Flawless Fusion makeup (complimentary foundation and translucent setting powder), which can be found at Sephora! It supposed to be super long lasting with full-medium coverage, AND for combination sensitive skin. What more could I ask for in a foundation?! It feels so light but covers so well and helps keep my face from looking oily during the day. I have the 1N2 Vanille foundation and the fair to medium powder, a perfect mix. Go check it out, they even have a travel size powder if you want to just try it out.
Happy Sunday loves! XX
I have some sweet memories of blueberry picking from when I was little with my mom and sis, taking them home, and waiting for what felt like forever for the blueberry pie to finish so I could top it off with too much vanilla ice cream. Well as it turns out, my sister's new apartment is super close to Neal Family Farm and she saw the day before that they would be open for picking the next day!! At work all day, the only thing I could think about was making some blueberry cobbler.
We got there and they also had blackberries!! Which are my favorite, so it made it all that much better! It actually takes a lot longer to fill up those buckets with those little berries, and we couldn't help but eat them as we picked.
And let's just say the entire night was a success because I wore my favorite white tee from Zara and didn't get any berry juice on it while picking and cooking :)
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend & Father's Day!
