Tea Time Featuring Evian Spray

Tipple + Rose-11You know what one thing I’ve been really appreciative for lately is my girl gang. Girls are thoughtful, caring, fun, and just get me and I’m lucky to be surrounded by so many strong women everyday. I love seeing my friends take life by the horns and make it their own and support me when I do the same thing. I am partnering with Evian Spray today to bring you this post in the theme of celebrating your girl gang and besties!

Valentine’s Red

I’m so excited to share this post today because I especially love the pictures in this post! These were taken at #hubday which is a day put together by The H Collective where creatives meetup all over the country in specific cities & collaborate! It was so fun to get to work with a mix of people while admiring & meeting others! Highly recommend signing up if you’re a interested! The majority of these pictures were taken by Hannah Turner (SO talented!) but the other photographers were also wonderful & are noted under specific photos! Because Valentine’s day is around the corner, I was inspired to put together this girly, red outfit which is cute & a perfect transition outfit from colder to warmer weather! Lastly, in the theme of Valentine’s Day, I put together some thoughts on being 24 & single at the bottom of this post since I haven’t shared many personal thoughts about a love life on my blog before! ❤

Travel Guide: A Girl’s Guide to NYC

Processed with VSCO with f2 presetI’m so excited to finally share with you all my girl’s guide to NYC! You might be thinking “Emily, you live in Atlanta, how are you confident that you know enough about NYC to do a “guide”?” Have no fear, I worked every week in NYC for 10 months (yes flying back & forth between cities) & also consistently still go back. Although there are SO many places I love in NYC, this is my list of my all-time favorite spots! These are the spots that if someone asked me to go right now, I would go in a heartbeat. I also included some extras in here just to make your trip in the best city in the world even better! 😉

The Fluffy Coat of my Dreams

I am having a week where I am just feeling high on life. I am feeling so constantly inspired and genuinely excited. There is such a big difference between working hard because you have to and working hard because you are passionate about something and can’t wait to demonstrate that passion. I’ve talked to some of my friends before about how lucky I feel to get so excited and motivated about certain things (especially when they are work-related); I know there are plenty of other people out there that are still trying to find their passions or are just really not interested in the corporate world or working at all. The quote on my insta bio is “if your dreams don’t scare you, they’re not big enough”. Getting to work towards my big dreams every day and feel like I’m making progress is a feeling that can’t be replaced. Hoping this feeling stays for a little while. 🙂DSC_0326.jpg Continue reading

Most Repurchased Beauty Products of 2017

Processed with VSCO with hb2 presetHi everyone! WOW 2018 is almost here and I’ve realized that working full time makes the year fly by even faster than other periods of my life. I asked you all on instagram if you’d rather see this post or a different one & this one won so here are my most repurchased products of 2017! ALSO, I included a little reflection of my year at the end of this post so check that out too! (If anyone is wondering what lipstain I’m wearing in the pic above, it’s this stain in the shade “Continual Crimson 213”!)

Blanket Scarves & Christmas Lights

Hi everyone! Winter always calls for dressing in layers & I’ve found that it is also essential to have a blanket scarf because they add so much warmth! I got mine recently in my Stitchfix box & I’m obsessed (literally have been wearing it daily). When you’re going somewhere outside, you can wear the scarf around your neck, & then when you get inside, you can keep the scarf on but as a shaw to keep you warm. It’s the perfect accessory everyone needs. Also one random thing I wanted to add about this post is that I included 12 random facts about my current life at the end if you want to check that out. J

Since I work full time & it’s hard to find time to shoot in the winter with the sun setting so early, I was thrilled when ATL photographer Shawn Michael Craig said that he was open to shooting in the morning with me. It was so cold (under 40 degrees) but it was a blast shooting together! I am so impressed by how these pics turned out and definitely recommend him if you’re looking for a photographer!IMG_5631 Continue reading
