On May 1st 2017, Jesselyn Burroughs opened The Bronze Boot! It is one of the cutest online boutiques! They have many beautiful statement jewelry and trendy stylish clothing! Many of their pieces have a boho flair. One of my favorites is my blue and white polka dotted dress with pockets! It's a great day time causal dress that's comfy, versatile, and cute!
I am lucky to have worked with this company through their launch. The Bronze Boot is a must if you a looking for something fashionable at a reasonable price! I suggest you stop in at their online store and take a look at all the cute options. Check them out and treat yourself to some beautiful pieces!
If you don’t have a hairdresser that you trust you are definitely doing something wrong!
At Salon Mezzmerize, owner Melissa Mezzanotte is someone you can always count on!
She is so sweet and understanding and extremely talented! Yesterday, during my appointment, I was having anxiety for no reason. Sometimes it happens out of nowhere. She helped me calm down, and trust me, that’s hard! The first thing she said to me was “red or white wine?” I mean, by that you know she gets me! By the way, I know being anxious over nothing is illogical but sometimes my mind thinks it makes sense. I appreciated her help so much!
As I calmed down we began the hair painting process. If you know me, you know that I am indecisive. So, as usual, I end up letting Melissa make suggestions and ultimately do what she wants to my hair. We decide, since it’s spring, that I should go a little lighter and a little shorter. The results… I absolutely love it! I think it’s perfect! I’ve learned that if I give Melissa the freedom and creative flexibility, I am never disappointed. Melissa’s creative expertise far surpasses my expectations every visit! Let me show you the results!
Salon Mesmerize is in North Haven, CT. One of their specialties is balayage, which is what I had done to my hair. The salon is very chic, from it’s chandeliers to its massage chairs. I suggest if you want to have an experience similar to mine you should give Salon Mezzmerize a call!
Camouflage is this amazing boutique in my hometown. It’s a little hidden gem that everyone seriously needs to check out! They have women and mens clothing. Their clothes are unique and fun. You can find something for day or night and even formal dresses. This isn’t even the best part about the place. The best part is the owner and the fun environment she has created at the boutique. Joan Cianciola (aka Puff) is the most honest, helpful, and also one of the nicest store owners I know. She and her staff will tell you like it is. If something doesn’t look great on you, trust me they will let you know . And who doesn’t want an honest opinion when shopping? It’s like going shopping with your best friend. All of the staff knows the inventory like the back of their hand too, so if you ever need help putting together the perfect outfit, they always know exactly what to pick out! So, I walked in there the other day and said “dress me in a full outfit including shoes” and this is what happened.
Is this not such a cute outfit?! The shirt is comfy and stylish, it is made of a sweatshirt material with a fun little opening in the back! The jeans are soft and comfy, that I forgot I even have jeans on. Lastly the shoes, which is became instantly obsessed with, are fabulous, comfy, easy to walk around in, and can also be worn in the spring because of the peep toe. This outfit is a great transition between seasons. My adventure at Camouflage didn”t stop there! I decided to go for a second outfit because I was having so much fun. Check out this one!
The jeans and shoes go with everything, so we kept them. But this Billy Joel t-shirt is so cute and fun to wear out during the day. The jacket is great. It is probably my favorite piece between these two looks. It’s so versatile and looks good with so many different things. I absolutely love everything about this outfit and am going to be wearing it probably more often than I should. Lastly, I couldn’t leave without this fun water bottle!
Overall, my trip to Camouflage was a huge success and so much fun. I will defiently be going back there soon to have more fun. I encourage everyone to check out this boutique! Click on the Camouflage picture to take a look. Trust me you will not regret it!
We have all been through stressful days where what we need is a bath, Lush bath bomb, and a glass of rosé! Well it has been one of those days, well more like weeks. As an accounting major, working during tax season is crazy and this is my cure to completely unwind. It is important when you unwind that you focus on yourself and only yourself! Lush bath bombs are to die for. Like seriously though, they smell amazing, help clean your body, and moisturize it too. Today I used one of the last ones I have left from Christmas. I have so many since my boyfriend knows how much I love them and got the 12 days of Christmas box for Christmas and then the Lots of Love box for Valentine’s day! But they are all amazing! I know that I feel the most put together and confident when I take a little me time and take care of myself. So make sure you take a little time out of the week to do you in whatever way makes you feel the best about yourself!
I would be lying if I told you that what you are about to read was easy for me to post, but here goes! When you look at social media pages you only see the version of someone that they want you to see. You never get to know who they really are. Well, this blog is about to get real, really quick! If you saw my social media pages you would know that I am a former division one soccer player, member of Zeta Tau Alpha sorority, that I love my boyfriend so much, and that I can be a real girly girl. But what I think is most important about people is what is inside of them that you can not see. A lot of people struggle with things that you would not ever guess they would, well here are my things. I suffer from Ulcerative Colitis, Post-Concussion Syndrome, and really bad anxiety. Now, you may be wondering “Why would she hide that?”, Well I will tell you. I have always felt that people would not accept me for who I am and would think I was weird for being this way. I am sure we have all felt this at some point in our lives. This is the point in mine where I am not going to let these problems of mine rule my life, I am going to be in charge! As I have grown up and started to really experience life I have realized that I need to learn to accept myself. Over the past year I have finally done that, I have found myself because of myself and the many amazing people in my life, I finally accept who I am. I more confident than ever in myself. This is me the best me and I love me.
Seriously this boutique has the most amazing clothes that are totally affordable! The jacket and jeans are both from Shoreline Sugars! These jeans are probably the most amazing pair that I have ever worn. The are so soft, comfy, and fit like a glove. Its like you are not even jeans with how comfortable they are. They are definitely my favorite pair. And this jacket basically speaks for itself with how perfect it is and looks! Its so easy to dress up or dress down depending on if you are going to work or running errands. Both of theses pieces are MUST HAVES!!! Lets also talk about how great the owners are too! They are a mother daughter team and they are willing to help you with anything! These Ladies are some of the nicest people I have ever worked with!
