Best Of The Shopbop Sale Under $100

Y'all I was trying to round up this post as fast as possible (hence why it's out a little earlier than my usual Thursday post!) because things are selling out SO FAST. Shopbop has a ton of great items on their site, and all of them are included in the sale! Of course there are items that are discounted before the sale as well and I've linked a ton of those so you have the best deals. But this sale is great because you can get an extra 20% or 25% more off depending on how much you spend! Every purchase under $500 (yup that means even a $15 item) is 20% off and every purchase over $500 is 25% off with the code EOTS17. This post is for every budget out there because as we all know, budgeting is my friend. So I'm sharing my picks under $50 and under $100, as well as some extra favorites in the shop carousels underneath each category. Shop them all below and let me know what items are your favorites. And be quick, this sale only lasts through the 29th!

Travel Guide: New Orleans


New Orleans is one of my absolute favorite cities, and if you've been reading my blog for a while you probably already know that. For those of you that aren't familiar with why I love the city, here's a brief explanation. I first traveled to NOLA during my sophomore year of college for a religion class based on Voodoo. I fell in love with the city then, and enjoyed the topic of that class so much that I decided to write my entire senior thesis on Voodoo! (I honestly would love to send it to you if you want to know more about the religion, I promise it's as interesting as you think it might be.) I then traveled back to the city during my senior year for some extended research on the subject and might possibly be visiting again next summer if things go as planned. New Orleans is full of great culture, history, music, and of course food! I wanted to share my own guide to the city so that you can experience all of the things that make New Orleans such a unique and fun destination!

How To Update Your Bedroom Without Spending A Lot Of Money


Am I the only one who gets that itch to change up their bedroom decor every few months or so? It's never because I hate what I have been living with, but I just get bored with staring at the same exact space for months on end. This was especially true for when I lived in the dorms at school, as I would typically bring in the same stuff that I chose freshman year on a whim but didn't actually love. Since living in a house things have been better. I have more space to decorate, had a fresh start to really pick out things I love (like my duvet cover!), and felt like I had a place that was actually mine. But that want to change things up a bit was still there, however I don't want to spend a fortune decorating and redecorating every few months, that would just be ridiculous. I've found a few ways to get around dropping a ton of cash and wanted to share them with you in case you are in the same boat!

HUGE August Instagram Roundup + Giveaway!

You may have read my last post all about how I'm trying to love Instagram again, so with that and the start of September I thought an Instagram roundup was in order. I'm sharing everything from the month of August, but if you want to be the first to see these photos you can go ahead and follow me on Insta if you'd like! Let's get started, because it's going to be a long one! P.S. Sorry some of these photos are blurry, I took them straight from Instagram and they don't always translate to the blog well!
