Hi loves! This is a new type of post that I want to start sharing here on TCB, one where I get a little more personal with all of you. It's essentially a 'life lately' but I'll be sharing what's currently happening in my life in all the different areas like the tv shows I'm watching, the things I'm eating, what's on my mind, etc. I love when bloggers get more 'real' and personal in their posts and after polling you all on Insta a while back it seems that you like the the same! So here goes, let me know in the comments if you like this style of life update!

This summer has been pretty busy so far! Settling into the new apartment has been going well and we're finally starting to get a routine going although I do have some more travel planned in the next few months so nothing is too structured right now. I also have an old sorority friend staying at my apartment in a few days, so I'm excited to catch up and show her around our neighborhood. Then in a little less than two weeks it will be my sister's birthday (I get to go back to my hometown for a bit and celebrate!!) and after that I'm keeping myself busy with a number of projects! Seriously, I feel like I've been so busy lately it's insane. Not complaining though, I love staying busy, especially if it means working with brands I love on the blog!

Now onto what I'm currently...

Listening To...

I feel like I haven't listened to music in so long! I used to listen to most of my music when I drove around town, but since leaving my car at home it's like music barely exists! I did recently go to Harry Styles' concert, so his album has constantly been playing in my mind (if you haven't listened, it's great!). I'm also a fan of John Mayer's latest hit 'New Light,' it's a little more reminiscent of his older stuff which I'm more of a fan of! 


Desperate Housewives, Psych, and Chuck. All shows I've watched before and love. I used to watch DH back in the day with my parents and never got around to actually finishing the series, so after noticing it on Hulu the other day I decided to restart the show. It's so dramatic and has the craziest story lines, I love it! Chuck and Psych are both on Amazon Prime and are hilarious crime shows. They're also two of my favorite shows so I highly recommend them!

Thinking About...

My next vacation. My sister and I are planning something really fun that I've wanted to do for YEARS, although it's so far away right now that it doesn't seem like a reality. More on this at a later date, but let's just say I'll finally be going to my dream vacation spot!


Unfortunately not much. I was recently hit with the stomach flu and didn't eat for a full two days, so not what I wanted to be doing this past week. Thankfully I'm already getting my appetite back and am feeling MUCH better!


Tons of water, gatorade, and ginger ale! I'm hydrating like crazy and am loving what it's doing to my skin, although maybe that's me getting healthy again, haha! 


The Chronicles of Narnia, haha! It's a movie series that I love and have always wanted to get into the books, so I figured why wait any longer?! It's definitely for kids, but I'm still loving them for the nostalgia. I haven't gotten to any of the books that don't have a movie, so it's been fun to compare the two.


My next two trips. Like I said I'll be traveling home for a few days to see my sister and we have so many things to schedule into my short time there. I would love to say it's all fun stuff, but there's a lot of business in there as well. As for my next trip that will be for another birthday, my friend Nicole! We were roommates in college for 3 years and I'll be traveling back to Southern California to go to her murder mystery themed party!

Excited For...

Fall! It's one of my favorite seasons, and I can't wait to see the city in the cooler weather. I was here for a brief amount of time last fall and enjoyed the weather, so I can't wait to see the city change. I also can't wait to start pulling out my sweaters and coats!


These leopard slides! I'm a lover of slides, mostly due to my laziness, haha. They're so easy to put on and match with any outfit, plus there are just so many different styles available now! I saw these slides on Instagram a while back and fell in love, and was so glad that they were from Target. That means I know they're going to be a good deal. 

I've also been obsessed with this convertible wrap cardigan! I purchased this as a last minute whim at the Nordstrom sale (still going on until the 6th, so shop my picks while you can!) and think it's the absolute coziest thing I've ever tried on. It's incredibly soft and I can't wait to wear it as the weather cools down! It's on sale right now for $46, and when the NSale finishes up it will go back up to $68, so if you're interested I would get it before the price increase! 

So what did you think, do you enjoy these types of posts? Let me know in the comments along with what's been going on in your life lately!
