As a little girl, I can still remember going to Nordstrom with my parents in Tysons Corner. It was the cream of the crop- a perfect shopping experience that my parents loved and passed down to me. I have fond memories of dining in the Nordstrom Café with my parents, back to school shopping with my grandma, and visits to the beautiful salon shoes to ogle over designer shoes with my mom. I’ve been a Nordstrom shopper literally my entire life and I still consider Nordstrom to be one of my favorite places to shop.

While I love a visit to Nordstrom, as the time has changed, shopping has evolved and online shopping at Nordstrom has become a habit for me. In college when onlin...

This week I'm so excited to launch my top holiday gift guides for 2019! This week's gift guide series is focused all on items I love with a theme for the gifts I most buy for! You can expect gift guides for kitty lovers (meow), gifts for him, gifts for her, gifts for the hostess, and for today- gifts for beauty lovers! 

Being a beauty lover myself, I consider myself extra partial to this guide as it features many items I already use and love, and some that I personally have on my list, too! Any beauty lover would love any of the featured items below, and I even broke them out in categories for under $25 and under $50.

Thanks to the Kardashians, I know all about body contouring and lasers and have been intrigued about it for years. To be honest, I had been wanting to try body contouring on my stomach area and arms- both of which I’ve admittedly been self-conscious about in the past. I never mustered up the courage to try it, and I learned to embrace my body instead of hating it and nitpicking it apart.

Earlier this fall I was approached by Lumenis to try their NuEra tight Treatment. At first I wondered how it may be perceived. A body positive blogger trying out something to alter my body made me nervous at potential backlash, but I thought...

As we are just 1.5 months into 2019, I have already been neck deep in trying new skincare and beauty finds. I have been visiting Sephora more than usual to try new brands, and I have been experimenting more with skincare and hair, as well. 

I've tried out some new brands that I have never tried before, and low and behold found some amazing products this way. I felt I needed a refresh on my go-to products, and I took it upon myself to try new things for the new year. Sometimes we all need a refresh, ya know? Today I'm highlighting my current fave products in beauty, skincare, and hair, in hopes to introduce you to one new faves, too!

For the past month I have bee...

Today I'm continuing with the BITD 12 days of Gift Guides, featuring gifts for beauty fanatics! I consider myself to be a beauty fanatic, so I decided to put together this guide guide to help give ideas for gifts for the beauty lover in your life, even if you don't know much about beauty products! 

Included in this guide are products I have either used and loved, or am dying to try myself- I figure if I want to try it, then so do my fellow beauty lovers, too! I pulled picks from my three major go-to beauty stores- Sephora, Ulta, and Nordstrom, and selected all my favorite brands! I included picks for makeup, skincare, hair, and beauty accessories, at all price points!
