Weekly Whistle: College Bound + Antique Shopping Exhaustion


Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Phew–the past few days have been quite crazy for me! I have been running through my college schedule–literally–trying to find the best routes on how to get from Class A to Class B in a reasonable amount of time…memorizing my Student ID number…and tag number. On top of that, I have been antique shopping in Johnson City and Elizabethton all day in search of items to finish my closet organization–I picked up some super amazing things that I cannot wait to show y’all..so, stay tuned to VIP Home *wink*

Anyway…where was I? Oh, my–today is Wednesday, which means it is time to take a look at the outfit of the week. Now, while y’all check out the photos (taken at Northeast State Community College…Go Bears! *wink*) + the outfit details, I am going to go indulge myself with some homemade gluten-free pizza *wink*

Beauty Tues: What’s New In My Beauty Bag


Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to Beauty Tues.

This week on VIP Beauty Tues, I am going to show y’all what new things I am adding to my beauty bag for college. Since I will be commuting each day, I decided I would need to toss a few extra beauty-saving essentials in my bag because I want to be prepared for a fashion emergency *wink* 

ALSO, keep reading to find out from what fabulous designer I got my beauty bag…at a great deal, of course *wink*


*Note…I am no beauty product photographer. Oh, how I wish my photographer would have been in town this week to snap a photo of my makeup bag without a glare *wink**

What’s New In My Beauty Bag:

  1. Lotions: I picked up a lotion specifically for softening hands because no fashionista wants dry, rough skin. I really love Bath & Body Works’s “True Blue Paraffin” hand lotion because it is able to cut through my tough skin without leaving my hands slick and yucky. I also picked up a “Stress Relief” mini body lotion at Bath & Body Works because I love the smell + it never hurts to have something for stress relief *wink*

  2. Lip Glosses: I am not typically a huge fan of lip glosses because I have a hard time finding ones I really like. So, when I saw that Bath & Body Works’s had MY FAVORITES on sale, I had to pick up a few. I highly recommend their mentha-infused ones and the Jelly Pops. The mentha-infused ones always feel so wonderful on chapped lips + they slide easily over lipsticks. The Jelly Pops are simply fun and cute + they smell delicious!

  3. Mini Hand Sanitizers: This one is pretty self explanatory *wink* I want to do everything possible to stay well during the school year–so, I picked up several different kinds of Bath & Body Works’s mini sanitizers to not only keep in my makeup bag, but to also keep in my backpack, purse, and car.

Now, it is time for me to reveal where I picked up such a darling makeup bag–*drum roll*….KATE SPADE online! Ah! I am a true lover of all things Kate Spade, and this “Escape The Ordinary” bag is a daily reminder for me to keep being true to myself :)
