Oversized Sweater from Ruby Bloom

I got this sweater at the grand opening of the Ruby Bloom Boutique in American Fork. I love it because it’s so unique and fun. I love the leather detail down the front, and it’s long and comfy! They have tons of cute items and luckily I live right down the street, so I can stop by whenever. Good news for those of you who don’t though…they have a website (click the link above) or you can follow their instagram (@rubybloomboutique) and they will ship the item to you!

Jasmine Lace Dress from Ivy + Blu!

Happy Holidays everyone! I know it’s not quite Christmas yet, but we just finished with Thanksgiving (I hope you all had a fabulous one!) and I’m sure your next month will be filled with tons of fun parties and get togethers no matter what holiday you celebrate. I have a little bit of a festive post for you today, along with another amazing dress from Ivy + Blu! I’m wearing their Jasmine Lace Insert Dress here and it is my favorite so far! That’s so hard to say because I have loved everything from them! Last week I was in Nordstrom and they have their collections there now, so get excited to see them around even more!!! This dress fits like a glove! It is so versatile because it’s modest as well! I could wear this to a Christmas party and turn around and wear it to church the next day if I wanted! The lace is beautiful and perfect for this time of year. I also love the belt that comes with it. It makes that perfect shape right at the smallest part of your waist!

If you love this dress, you will love their whole holiday collection! Visit their website here to see more! Also, see their collection online and in stores at Nordstrom here!

My European Wax Center Experience!

No Shave November is OVER!!! So I’m going to tell you about the best place to get a painless…well practically painless…wax to get rid of all your unwanted hair! waxingforall

I’ve had waxes before a few times. I have a pretty high pain threshold, but every time I go I have to take advil beforehand and I’m dreading it. As I’m laying on the table, I’m sitting there sweating and panicky…even for eyebrows!

I got invited to try a wax at European Wax Center and I thought I would try it because a few girls from my office had been there before and had mentioned that they had a great experience. I arrived and the receptionist was so friendly and explained everything to me. Their prices are extremely reasonable and you can even purchase packages so you end up saving a ton of money over time as well! Below are just some of their options for women, but they have a bunch for men as well! Euro Wax’s moto is waxing for all! They believe everyone should feel gorgeous and fab, not just the privileged! I love this!

Eyebrows – $16; Nose – $10; Lips – $9; Underarms – $16; Arms – $28; Legs – $32; Bikini – $28; Brazilian – $42

Lisa, my wax specialist, took me back into the room and I was starting to get my usual nerves, but she was so nice and also explained everything to me! European Wax Center uses what they call a ‘comfort wax’ that is made in Paris from 100% natural beeswax, so it is way more gentle on skin that regular wax. The purple color comes from color dye they use so they can see it better.

I opted for underarms and a Brazilian….ahh the dreaded Brazilian! But it feels so much better to just feel clean and not have to worry about shaving doesn’t it? I have to tell you honestly, I have never had a better wax. I barely felt it. I’m not exaggerating. It is a hard wax and they don’t use the paper strips, but it looks like floppy jelly when they peel it off. Lisa put the wax on and when it was ready she just had me breath in and out and off it came. I almost didn’t realize it was done! Also…we all know it can be a little awkward to be naked from the waist down on a table with a stranger, but she was so cute and chatted with me the whole time and I didn’t even notice! Much better than an OBGYN visit! After the Brazilian the underarms took about 30 seconds and I was done. No sweating! No stinging! It’s like all my life problems were solved in about 15 minutes and I felt like I could cure world hunger. Well I wish, but it was a great experience and I would recommend them to anyone!

Another bonus! They offer a free wax of either eyebrows, underarm, or bikini line for women, and a brow, ear, or nose treatment for men on your first visit to the Center! So now you have no excuse to not try them out!

Make your reservation today @ www.waxcenter.com/reservations or call

Gold and Glitter

I think these gold pants might be one of my favorite buys in a long time. I was walking through Nordstrom and they were one of those things that I saw out of the corner of my eye and whoops they ended up at home with me. Sometimes you just can’t help it. I can’t wait to see how many ways I can wear them.

Cozy Animal Print + Cyber Monday Deals!

Black Friday is over, but if you are like me then you’ll be shopping from your bed…couch…desk tomorrow instead. So much better than trying to fight all of the crowds or get trampled at a Wal-Mart. My mom would rather pay full price than go shopping on Black Friday or set foot in a Wal-Mart. Haha. We did do some shopping this year, but I don’t think I actually have for the past 3 or 4 years. So if you scroll to the bottom of this page you can check out the deals I am looking forward to for Cyber Monday!

P.S. This sweater is probably the softest thing I have ever worn. I’m obsessed with it. I got it back during the Anniversary Sale and have been waiting to wear it for so long! The shoes are from the Sea of Shoes Collaboration with Shoe Mint, and they are 50% off right now for their Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale! Go get them before they are back to full price!

Catching Fire Costumes

So I finally saw Catching Fire. Loved it! Now I just need to decide if I loved the book, the movie, or the wardrobes better. These movies are just as good as the books. Usually I love the books more, but I really like the movies for this series because they stay so true to the book and I LOVE Jennifer Lawrence.

I am obsessed with what costume designer, Trish Summerville, did with this movie’s outfits. I think I want to live in The Capitol. I would die to wear these dresses.

Johanna’s (Jena Malone) custom dress was made by Trish Summerville and Jan Taminiau out of pressed cork and nails, with cascading chiffon to look like leaves. Perfect for the lumber district.

I think Effie’s (Elizabeth Banks) dresses give everyone a run for their money. All of these are Alexander McQueen. I think out of everyone’s I would pick hers to wear. So extravagant, but I love it!

I loved Katniss’ (Jennifer Lawrence) hair and makeup in this mocking jay dress, designed by Trish Summerville. The details are amazing. (Effie in Alexander McQueen again)

I wish I could find a better picture of Katniss’ chariot dress because it was so amazing on her.
