Sephora VIB Sale

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, beauty lovers!  Every year around this time. Sephora has their biggest sale of the year.  All products and brands are 20% off for VIB and Rouge members.  Insiders can get 15% off as well.  Sephora only has two sales a year with the other being in the spring.  A lot of these brands/products rarely go on sale, so it’s definitely the time to shop.

This is  my favorite time to stock up on beauty products from Sephora!  My strategy when shopping this sale is to buy my go-to products that I need for back-ups or I’m running low on, as well as new products that I’ve been wanting to try out.  When looking at new products to try, I do tend to buy some more expensive items that really never go on sale.  I’m going to break down products in this post by what I’ve bought so far, what’s currently in my cart, and other wishlist items/picks.

Fall Florals: OOTD

I can’t believe how fast fall is going this year!  It makes me a bit sad since it’s my favorite season and I’m not ready for winter to come at all.  This fall I’ve been loving a top that screams fall when you see it.  Since fall is going so quickly, I thought I better share it with you now before it’s too late and you’re onto winter clothes.  Fyi, this top is another item I scored from Loft.  Sorry if you’re getting sick of me talking about Loft, but they’ve just had so many cute clothes and major sales this season!

Teacher Style: First Day of School

If you didn’t know, I’m an elementary special education teacher.  I absolutely love what I do and wouldn’t trade it for anything!  I’m now back to work after a truly amazing summer and working on getting back into my routine for teaching.  Last Thursday was our official first day of school with students.  Even as a teacher I still get excited and nervous for the first day.  I also love to carefully pick out my first day of school outfit.  I’m sharing that outfit with you in this post!

Favorite Summer Reads

Besides fashion and travel, reading is a big passion of mine.  Rarely am I not in the middle of reading a book.  I love summertime because I have more time to read, which means I can cross more books off my to-read list.  This summer I read 26 books from June 1st until now.  Of those 26 books, I’m going to share with you my top favorites that stood out to me the most and that I would highly recommend.

LOFT Sale: Haul

I use to shop at the LOFT outlet quite frequently, but hadn’t shopped there in a couple years.  Recently I had been seeing some fashion bloggers posting really cute stuff from LOFT on Instagram, so I decided to check it out when I heard about a sale they were having!  LOFT recently had a sale where everything on the site was 40% off with the code OHYES.  With fall coming up and that great deal, I decided to take full advantage and stock up on some tops and sweaters.

Now there are some even better sales and deals on LOFT! Right now a lot of fully priced styles are 60% off, including the majority of what I ordered!  I might have to do another order since there are even better deals now!  Now let’s get into the Loft haul:

Belize: Travel Guide

I recently got back from an 11 day trip to Belize and had an amazing time!   I actually traveled solo on this trip with the tour company, EF College Break.  I’ve gone on a few trips before with this company, but Rachel has always gone with me.  EF College Break is for people ages 18-28, so unfortunately I only have a year left to travel with this company.  There were 42 others on this trip with me, along with a tour director.  I met a lot of new people and made some awesome new friends!  I highly suggest EF College Break if you want to travel, but don’t want to plan everything.  They literally take care of it all for you, which makes things much less stressful.

I thought it would be fun to share with you my travel experience in Belize.  To make things easier, I’m breaking things down into the places I went to.  For each place, I’ll share the highlights of the things I did there.  At the end of this post I’ll also be sharing with you tips, tricks, and hints for Belize that I learned prior to going there and while I was there.  Let’s get into it!
