Somebody Please Tell Me....

...how I just found out about how Neiman Marcus Last Call constantly has Kendra Scott on sale. No I'm not making this up, EVERY. DAY. click right here {after you finish reading my blog of course ;) }

...how it is already Christmas time!!

...what we should get our parents for Christmas this year? Candles are always easy but we do that every year or some form of jewelry. I want to change it up! I'm thinking something personalized...

...how Jessica Simpson designs the most gorgeous high heels year after year. I NEED these ones for our holiday Christmas Party.

{Online at Macy's  & an extra 25% off with the code FRIEND}

...how hard you would laugh {or cry} if you finished decorating your Christmas Tree & as soon as you sat back to admire it, it fell to the ground & crushed all your ornaments? Because this happened to me a few days ago & I wanted to do both.

...what I should wear to my company Christmas Party. Just come over with all of your most fabulous holiday dresses & dress me & do my hair & makeup. Thank you in advance. ;)

...why I find it so hard to squeeze this bloggy thing into my schedule. Maybe that should by my new years resolution.

Until next time!

So maybe I'm not as good at Blogging as I thought I'd be...

I am an avid blog reader...I don't know how I came across the whole blog world, I don't remember the first blog I ever read. I've always loved reading and I love reading about other people's perspectives, happenings, and random crap to be honest. I'd say I have been reading blogs regularly for atleast 7 years. I always had the thought in my head to start a blog & always discouraged myself thinking I wouldn't be good it it (looks like this one may be true), nobody would want to read my posts, and that I didn't have the time to blog.

Well maybe all of those are true but I got a wild hair as I was coming to the end of my career as a nanny and beginning my career in Sales....why not now?! So I stayed glued to my computer for a straight week. Day in & day out.....reading blogs on how to start a blog. Sounds ridiculous right? It probably is but hey who best to learn from than the people who have already been there & done that?

So I dove in head first, didn't sleep until my new blog was perfect. A design just how I liked it, many hairs pulled out from frustration trying to make links work, which I still struggle with, and one blog post written. I FINALLY DID IT! I posted two more times that week, wrote a few drafts/ideas for future posts and then started my new career. I feel like a failure because I started this commitment & then just dropped it (like it's hot).

Well I'm back! & I am making a commitment to writing 3 blog posts a week. I don't know how, I don't know what I'm going to write about, and I definitely don't know where I am going to find the time to do so. But I am going to figure it out, whether you like it or not.

How do yall find time to write your blog posts & how many posts do you usually make each week?

Bringing the coastal feel into work, without looking tacky.

I grew up on the Gulf-Coast of Texas so i spent plenty of warm summer days & nights fishing, boating, and playing on the beach. I considered myself a mermaid or a fish for most of my childhood. Now that I am in college 250 miles away and working a big girl job I find myself day dreaming about those days on the coast & the smell of salty air. I wish I could have no responsibilities forever & pick up & walk down the the sand within minutes, any day I please. But until then, I'll just have to bring that look into my office & keep dreaming...




1. These Kendra Scotts are DARLING! I just got them this past week & haven't gotten the chance to wear them yet but I am itching to, i'll do an outfit post when the time comes.
2. Scallops!!! I can't get enough. I love that this dress is work appropriate in so many settings just by wearing it like it is with the right shoes and you can easily just throw a blazer in almost ANY color on top. 
3. Seriously, the scallops. I think I'm a little late to the scallop party but I can not get enough. Kate Spade is the queen of scallops & this little number just happens to be on sale right now...which means she may be coming home to Momma soon ;)
4. These heels! The color, the caged heel that makes them any more playful, and THE COLOR. I love a good color pop with my shoes when I'm at the office. Did I mention that these are only $35.99?! Charlotte Russe is also running a promotion right now for BOGO $12.50 so I also scooped up these beauts, so classic & "in" right now.
5. Okay maybe I am a little too obsessed with scallops right now, can you blame a girl? They remind me of the home on the coast with a little wave inspiration so I just can't get enough. & monogrammed? Enough said.
6. Essie nail polishes don't need much explanation. These colors are a fun way to bring the coastal feel with you to work (or play) everyday. 

Happy Friday Eve Ladies!
xoxo, Lauren

The Girl Behind The Blog

FIRST OF ALL: You can now follow me on Bloglovin' if you click this little link below


Everybody likes talking about themselves, right? Right. If you can show me somebody who says they don't like to talk about themselves and/or the people they love every once in a while then I will show you a liar.

^That's me, I'm Lauren! I'm 21 years old {or young, whatever}, and a Marketing student at Texas State University. I am a stereotypical Texas girl to the core, I love hunting, fishing, and enjoy being outdoors every chance I get. & of course the Texas pride runs deep in my blood. I grew up on the Gulf Coast so if i'm remotely near a body of water, whether an ocean or a pond, I am happy. Even though I love Texas, I'm a self proclaimed snowbunny & go skiing or snowboarding every chance I get. 




I have a LARGE blended family so life was always interesting growing up to say the least!


Houston yall, we may not have the best teams but they're the best to us ;) The boy is amazing & all mine.


& last but not least I'll leave yall with a picture of my furbaby. Gracie Lou Freebush. Obviously I'm a little biased but she is adorable. 

Yall (as in all one of my followers, HEY MOM!) can now follow me on Bloglovin' the follow this little link below.

Houston We Have a Problem...

Starting a new job comes with a lot of new issues and worries (or maybe that's just me...) but one of my number one worries when starting somewhere new is what to wear. I am starting a new career in sales in a couple of weeks and according to my boss the dress code is "business professional" but what does business professional really entail?

*Types "business professional" in google*

*Looks horrifiedly at the boring black lifeless suits and white shirts*

*Logs on to Pinterest*

Yeah, no thanks! My (future) office is comprised of men & one older woman & the two of us just don't have the same style AND it doesn't help that the men in the office who are dressing "business professional" don't wear jackets and one wears a baseball cap! Granted, this is Central Texas so a blazer or jacket is not as appropriate in the middle of summertime but it does not help my case.



How do yall manage to have your own personal style in the workplace?

Blog? What's a Blog?

Hi I'm Lauren! Im 21 years old, a Texas college student thats learning how this whole world works one day at a time. I have been in love with reading blogs since I was in High School (Yes, I realize that was like yesterday to some of yall.) and always wanted my own little corner of the internet to call my own. After a few months of going back & forth and getting a little nudge from my roomie, (Hi Megan!!) and my mom...well here I am. This is all still new to me & I have no idea what I'm doing, much like the rest of my  life, I'm just going to smile & pretend like I do.
Until next time...

Lauren
