Mississippi to California to Georgia.

It’s been a while since my last blog post! I’ve been really busy the last two months. I decided to move to Georgia to open my own boutique! It has been absolutely crazy and I’m still in shock. I plan to open a store in Buckhead, GA in January, but until then I’m operating online! My website won’t be live for another month, but I started selling on Instagram and Facebook! I definitely didn’t expect all of the orders! I’ve been so busy packaging orders everyday, and I’m so happy and excited I’ve received such positive feedback from friends and family! 

August 1st I flew to Los Angeles for a week. Every morning at 8 I went shopping downtown at the LA Fashion District! I had to find unique pieces for my boutique, but I didn’t want to wait till the October market in Atlanta. We decided to make a trip out of it and spent a few hours every day shopping for the boutique, and the rest of the day and night exploring California! It was amazing! Here’s a few pictures from that week.



I had so much fun exploring like a tourist! We went to Malibu, The Santa Monica Pier, Hollywood, Sur, Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive, stalked the Kyle Richards from the real housewives, GG and Bella Hadids house in Malibu, and tons of other celebrities houses. It was so much fun. 

Now I’m living in Atlanta working on my online boutique! Go check out my social media and then new arrivals 💗

New beauty products 

Happy Thursday everyone! I made a trip to Target and Marshall’s today, and decided to pick up a few beauty products I have never tried before! I’m going to Atlanta on Sunday, and I figured why not buy a few extra things to try out while I’m gone! Here’s what I got! 


I love beauty products! I’m kind of obsessed, and sometimes it’s a problem! I can’t help myself ha.


I’ve never tried this face mask brand, but I’m a sucker for all of them! I’m obsessed with all types of face masks, and I usually do one every other night! I have this Nugg Face Mask on right now, and it smells amazing! It says to leave on for 15 minutes, and then rinse off! It looks small, but I only used about a quarter of the face mask. I’ll definitely get 2 or 3 more uses out of it!


I can’t wait to try the Vichy Double Glow Peel Mask! I found this travel section inside target and went a little crazy with the face masks! 


I LOVE the smell off this Triple Power Moisturizer! I own the full size bottle, but I bought this little travel sized one for the plane! I’m obsessed with this moisturizer! I use it every night before I go to bed! 


I’ve never used this product but I had to try it! Sea Foam face wash with coconut water and powerhouse antioxidants convinced me! I can’t wait to try it! 


No idea what this is even for! I will be googling it before I use it ha ☺️Looks awesome though! 


Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Lip Stain🙌🏻 So excited to try these out! I love matte lipstick, these colors are too cute to pass up! 


EOS shave cream in pomegranate raspberry! I’ve never used this brand or scent, but I’m excited to shave now! (Never thought I’d say that)


I decided to grab two new Bare Minerals eye shadow pallets! I bought these at Marshall’s! Love the colors.


Sex Kitten Tarte eyeliner! I love Tarte, so I’m excited to try this eyeliner! Hopefully it lasts all day!


Is it too early to start burning Pumpkin Spice scents?? I couldn’t help myself! 🎃

I’m heading to Atlanta on Sunday, and I’ll be taking these new items with me! I’ll be sure to post what I think about everything! 

Xoxo💕

HELLO August 

Hello August 2017! I can’t believe you’re here😳 The summer flew by, and I have mixed feelings about it! A lot of changes are about to take place in my life and I’m scared/ so excited about it! I’m moving to Atlanta, which is a huge deal! I’ve lived in Mississippi my entire life, but I’m SO ready to take on Atlanta! I didn’t plan on moving to Atlanta till about a month ago, so I’ve had little time to plan anything! The next ten days will be so busy for me! (Plz say a prayer) 


My boyfriend Mike got into Ole Miss Law school, so he will be moving to Oxford, Mississippi within the next couple of weeks! I’m going to miss him way too much! ☹️ But we are doing what’s best for both of our careers, and we’re excited to take that on together! I’m so excited for our future, and the fall season! 

Things I’m excited for this August: 

  • Starting my life in a new city 
  • Moving my boyfriend to Law School 
  • Football season
  • Pumpkin spice lattes are now acceptable 
  • Fall wardrobe 💅🏼 
  • New job
  • My 30 day fitness journey 
  • Bonne Vivantes fittings for our Mardi Gras Ball

I hope everyone has a beautiful Tuesday, and please enjoy the first day of August🍁🌿🍂

Healthy start to the week

Happy Monday everyone! I wanted to start the week off right doing something I don’t normally do! I love coffee and coke, but they’re obviously terrible for your body! My normal morning routine consists of lots of coffee, but I wanted to switch it up. I decided to go on a little detox adventure this week and see how long I can go without breaking down and chugging a coffee or a coke! (Currently waiting for the caffeine headache to kick in) So I Pinterested some detox water ideas and decided to go with an old favorite! I use to use this recipe in college all of the time whenever I was trying to lose weight before an event or major weekend! 

Not only does this satisfy your tastebuds, but it’s so refreshing during hot summer days! The lemon-mint-cucumber combination cleanses, aids in digestion, and rehydrates. The lemon makes for a powerful detox drink; lemon juice helps to cleanse and alkalize the body. Even though I’m trying to stay away from the sugar, the mint adds a touch of sweetness without the sugar, and it also helps settle your stomach and aids in digestion. The cucumber contains anti-inflammatory properties, and helps with rehydration. Not only are cucumbers delicious, they’re known to contain lariciresinol, pinoresinol, and secoisolariciresinol. These three lignans have a strong history of reduced risk of several cancer types, including breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and uterine cancer! So why not add a few extra cucumbers, am I right?? 😋

I went to Walmart today and grabbed the ingredients for the water, and immediately came home to mix everything together! I let the water sit for 30 minutes, and then poured a glass! So yummy 😋

Date night!


Last night Mike and I decided to have a date night! We have been together over two years now, and it has been the best two years of my life! I don’t know how I’d make it in this crazy world without him💗



We started our date night at Shaggy’s! We love this place because it’s on the water in Biloxi, and their cocktails are amazing! I asked Mike to smile and this is what I got 



Mike wanted ice cream from Ben and Jerrys so of course we had to stop by the Hardrock on the way home. It was delicious!


We ended our night with a beach cruise down Ocean Springs beach! We are so blessed to call this beautiful place home💗 

XOXO😘

A Few of My Favorites

I love makeup! I’ll admit it, I’m a girly girl who gets excited at the sight of a Sephora! I love trying new things, but there are a few of my favorites I can’t live without! They help me get through those rough Monday mornings, and of course date night on the weekends! 

The first thing I do in the morning is wash my face with Olay Total Effects scrub cleanser! It seriously wakes me up in the morning!

After my face is clean, I use lotion all over my face and neck because I’m terrified of wrinkles! Next is absolute favorite! Smashbox photo finish primer is the best! It minimizes my pores and helps my make up look great all day and night! I swear by this next product! I don’t know what I would do without it! It makes my skin look flawless, and I can’t live without it! This shape tape concealer erases those blemishes and dark circles under my eyes! This product is a must-have! 

Clinique double wear face powder keeps my face looking flawless, and oil free all day! I have used this product since I was in high school! 

I admit I love to sparkle! This glow kit was sent from heaven! I stand out no matter what whenever I apply this product! 


My last go to product is the Better Than Sex mascara by Too Faced! It lengthens my lashes and people can actually tell I have eye lashes! My eyes lashes are blonde and most people can’t see them unless I have mascara on (tragic). 

I honestly don’t know what I would do without these products! And I’m on the hunt for new products to try! 

Xoxo, Erika 💗
