Don’t Be Alarmed…Site Renovation in Progress…

Don’t be alarmed!!! I’ve been making site changes to improve my blog for my 1st blogging anniversary (January 28, 2014). Do you like the black bird nature background or would you be okay will a more clean approach to my blog? Of the three options, which would you pick 1, 2, 3 or 4? Option 1 is how my blog was originally. Right now, my blog is a hybrid between option 1 & 2 (option #4). However, I thinking of getting rid of the black birds and going with the fun and girly pink polka dots in option #2. I could also do a more minimalistic layout with option #3 and keep the blog fresh, clean, and elegant.

What do you think? I’d love your feedback. Please vote and let me know what you think. (Just click on each option to see an enlarged picture of each layout. Voting ends on January 11, 2014🙂


Zara Clutch Crave

zara clutchI saw this clutch online at and I am obsessed. I visit this clutch every day online. However, I’m not sure I want to spend $79.90 on a clutch–especially with so many graduation expenses coming up. What should I do? Should I splurge or wait for a sale? (Does Zara ever have sales?)

This clutch is a really unique piece to add to my wardrobe and it could be really pretty versatile pick to go with jeans or a little black dress. Am I right? 🙂

March Julep Maven Preview

Julep-March Collection

Julep-March Boho & BombshellJulep-March Classic with a Twist & It GirlJulep-March Modern Beauty

I thought I would take the time to share what the options are for this month’s Julep Maven box. I signed up for a Bombshell box when my profile quiz said I was Classic with a Twist. However, each month I never know which box I am going to pick. This month is particularly difficult. Is it just me or does the March box look a little meh? For some crazy reason, nothing is jumping out as a must have. Maybe it’s all the unopened polishes I’m still working on that has me hesitating to get more.  Right now, if I decide to buy a box this month, I am thinking about the Boho Glam box. If I skip this month, I think I will be doing a Sephora haul. Choices…choices…I feel so indecisive. Help!!!!!!!!! What should I do?

If you’re a Julep Maven, which box are you picking for March?
