This Week's Top 10


1. THANKSGIVING IS SIX DAYS AWAY!!! I am so excited I can hardly stand it. Pictured above is the delicious salad I made for Thanksgiving last year; I can't recommend it enough (soo good). If you need any ideas of what to wear, check out my Thanksgiving Outfit Guide with casual options, dressy options, and options in between!

2. Mango, one of my favorite online retailers, is having 30% off all of their sweaters this weekend. I shared my favorites in this blog post yesterday. I ordered this one and this one, but I especially love this one and this one too. All are under $100 with free shipping and returns!

3. I shared three more gift guides this week: perfect ideas for your mom, girlfriend, or friend who has everything! AKA: the three hardest girls to shop for :)

The Best Sweater Sale


Happy Thursday afternoon babes!! I just finished up an exam and was pleasantly surprised to see one of my favorite online retailers having 30% off all of their sweaters right now. I just had to share the sale, because I love shopping online at Mango. They have an incredible selection of sweaters (almost all under $100!!) and free shipping in addition to the 30% off. For those of you who haven't shopped at Mango before, it's a lot like Zara when it comes to style, but with a much better online experience and in my opinion, much better quality too!! I just placed an order for a couple of Mango sweaters, and I have rounded up other options I love below:

Gift Guides for the 3 Hardest Girls to Shop for


Welcome to round two of my gift guides for the season! I am excited to share three more gift guides today that I think might be really helpful for holiday shopping this year: the gifts for the girls who are the hardest to shop for. Whether it be that your best friend already has everything she could want, or you don't even know where to start with your mom, or you're a guy who just has no idea what to get your girlfriend, I've got you covered. Quality, thoughtful gifts don't have to be impossible to find! In fact, I love the pieces I've rounded up below, and I think you might too...

College Fitness Update

A reader requested I share an updated workout routine, but I want this two be more of a discussion today than just me ranting on about what I like to do at the gym. What are your favorite workouts and how do you stay motivated to get in a good sweat? I'm chatting about my typical health and fitness schedule but I would love some inspiration from hearing yours!

This Week's Top 10


1. Happy Friday! Not much is going on here this weekend. The Iowa vs Wisconsin football game is tomorrow, but I'm feeling so unprepared for a game day in 30 degree weather!! Last weekend I ended up spontaneously heading down to Chicago and I had just the best time (as always).

2. I am so excited that I kicked off some holiday posts this week. In case you missed it, I shared gift guidea for the traveler, the adventurer, and the hostess, as well as a Thanksgiving Outfit Guide. What was your favorite? Not holiday related, but I also shared links to shop my Insta Stories in this blog post too.

3. My holiday shop is finally liveI am dying to smell this scent!! The bottle is gorgeous and the notes of tuberose and jasmine are right up my ally. I need to get myself into a Nordstrom over Thanksgiving break so I can see if it's worthy of going on my Christmas list :)
