President’s Day Sales (woohoo!)

Oh I how love President’s Day! Yes, I am very thankful for my nation’s historical leaders, but I also love this glorious Monday because it means DEALS! If you don’t know by now, I love Anthro, I looove Free People & I love me some good old Nordstrom. These are three of my absolute favorite places to shop because I know that the quality is always going to be fantastic! I’ve linked my favorite 10 items form each, all for under $100. Most of what I’ve linked is even under $50!! Now’s the time to snatch some of those items that weren’t in your budget, but that are now! I love these items because they are high quality and cuuute, but they don’t break the bank! Nordstrom:     Anthropologie (additional 40% off taken at checkout):     Free People (additional 25% off taken at checkout):     Happy shopping people! xoxo, Karlee

Baby Brezza

As a new mom, the abundance of baby products can be overwhelming😳 Everywhere you look there’s something new and I’ll be honest, I don’t even know how to use half of it… But I came across Baby Brezza and was intrigued by what they offer and decided to give some of their products a try. Natural Bottles: Positives– The great thing about these bottles is that they are super easy to clean. Because they only have two pieces and are really wide, it makes it really easy to get your bottle brush into every nook and cranny! The bottles also have a wide, breast-like nipple that aims to help babies latch. I’m breastfeeding and bottle feeding right now, so I’m hoping that this feature will eventually help make the transition between the two a bit easier. These bottles also come in different colors and sizes. I opted for the gray, but you can also find pink or teal if you want to go more gender specific. They even have a glass option! Formula Pro: The …

The BEST Maternity Basics

Quality maternity clothes can be hard to come by– Trust me, I know. When shopping online it can be hard to know what you’re going to get, but I’ve found the jackpot people! If you are expecting, you need to check out Bae. I cannot say enough good things about the items that I have from them. They are seriously the BEST. 1. The comfiest joggers you’ll ever purchase. They fit like a glove, the fabric is so soft and stretchy, and they’re totally flattering. I want to live in them!! And umm they have pockets. Real pockets. These joggers are a MUST. 2. Striped t-shirt.  Such a cute basic tee! I really like the simple shape and the cute embroidery. Hallelujah for a comfy tee that is actually long enough! It has a good collar too. That maybe sounds weird, but I hate cheap collars that bunch up on you after one wash. This one doesn’t 😉 3. Split front pullover. This pullover is a maternity basic that you’ll love! The mauve color is to die for, …

Straighten Your Smile: Candid Co.

Let me paint you a picture… I’m a fourteen year-old brace face that absolutely dreads going to the orthodontist. I’m super self conscious about my teeth, not to mention zit-faced and awkward. This mouth full of metal hated, yes hated with a fiery burning passion, having braces. By the time I got them, they just weren’t cool anymore. You know when you’re young and you think that braces are cool? Yeah, they were not cool when I had them… After two years of my mouth bleeding and my teeth aching, I never wanted to see the orthodontist again. EVER. So what did I do? When I got my retainer, after all of the agony of my braces, I didn’t wear it. Okay, so my mom maybe made me wear it for like a year, but after that I put it in its case in my bathroom and never looked back. Now, as an adult, my teeth have of course shifted and I’m kicking myself for being an irresponsible adolescent. Ugh. So, why the trip down …
