Summer Q&A Post

Shirt | Shorts (on sale) | Sandals | Similar necklace | Sunglasses | Crossbody

Hey y'all! I thought it would be fun to do a Q&A post for the summer and a ton of you sent in questions to my email and tumblr. I kind of want to do one of these posts every season, so if I get good response from this one, I will make it a tradition! Hope you enjoy!

Question:
What are your favorite beauty products?

Answer:
I do wear makeup, but I never wear a ton of it–– huge props to those people that can wear full makeup daily and do it with ease. However, I wear these products on an almost daily basis:

Trish McEvoy mascara / Benefit "they're real" mascara (layered on top of the TM mascara)

My favorite perfume is "Amazing Grace" by Philosophy.

As far as face wash/my skincare routine goes:
Murad soothing gel cleanser (my face is always red so this helps)
First Aid Beauty moisturizer (I swear by this stuff)

As far as hair products go:

Question:
What are your favorite purchases this Summer so far?

Answer:
I've been finding myself wearing these Steve Madden sandals on repeat lately! I'm entertaining the idea of buying a pair in black suede as well (I have the tan).

Another thing I've been wearing a ton is my Solid and Striped one piece. The pattern I have is sold out but I also love this one Taylor Swift has been spotted in! This one is also a nice neutral option–– you honestly cannot go wrong with stripes.

Question:
Any music suggestions for us?

Answer:
Feel free to check out my Spotify! I have quite a few playlists with different genres.

Question:
I want to buy a designer handbag but it's so hard to save up to get one (I specifically want the Gucci bag you have). Any tips on saving or getting one for cheaper?

Answer:
I saved up for mine using money I made off of Poshmark and also money I made off of blogging. Although I purchased mine full price off of the Gucci website, you could always look on eBay, Bella Bag, and the RealReal. If you do decide to purchase it off of eBay, check the seller's reviews and make sure they are reputable! You want to know exactly what you are getting!

Question:
What's on your dream list of things to eventually own?

Answer:
I have always wanted a Cartier love bracelet, but those are extremely pricey. I'd also love to eventually get a men's two-toned Rolex (I like the bigger sized watch face). Oh, and a Chanel bag. A girl can dream, right? #unrealistic

Question:
Do you play any sports? How often do you work out?

Answer:
I've played tennis my whole life. I also played golf in middle school but quit it for tennis–– I have recently gotten back into golfing for fun. I try to play at least once a week with my dad. It's our way of bonding.

As far as working out goes, I am very inconsistent with it, but I am working on it. I really want to get back in shape because I have been letting myself slip lately (vacations/alcohol/good food in excess will do that to your body, unfortunately).

Question:
What bloggers do you look to for inspiration?

Answer:
Julia Engel of Gal Meets Glam, Krista Robertson of Covering Bases, and Mackenzie Kendall's blog are the ones I always check daily!

Question:
I need a good leather tote for school. Any suggestions?

Answer:
The Madewell transport tote is an amazing option. My roommate has one and she graciously let me borrow it quite a few times last year. I couldn't recommend it enough. This year, I plan on saving up and purchasing a Louis Vuitton Neverfull in the MM size for class (although who knows if I'll be able to pull the trigger on that large purchase). 

Question:
What are your restaurant suggestions for Savannah, GA?

Answer:
I plan on doing an updated Savannah guide very soon! Some I would recommend are: Collin's Quarter, Vinnie's Pizza, Garabaldi's, The Vault, Wyld Dock Bar (our family favorite), Kayak Cafe, and Tequila's Town (hands down the best margaritas).

Question:
What is your favorite travel spot?

Answer:
This is so hard for me to answer. My favorite city I've been to is probably San Francisco. My favorite country I've traveled to is either Switzerland or Morocco. Another spot that will always have my heart is Whitefish, MT. It's insanely beautiful.

Have any other questions for me? Always feel free to email me or send me a message on tumblr!

  1. 'Amazing Grace' is one of my favorite scents of all time. I love fresh smelling fragrances. All of the blogs you mentioned are my favorite! Hopefully, I will be swinging by Switzerland when I go to Germany this summer.
