Happy Wednesday :) Today, I wanted to share with you all some of my favorite pieces that I've recently added to my bedroom within the past fews weeks. For the longest time, my bedroom was pretty bare with just the basics, honestly just because I didn't feel like buying any decor to "spice it up." 

I finally caved and bought a few things that caught my eye. 

One of my favorite places to shop for home decor (which I'm sure tons of you would agree with me) is Home Goods. Home Goods is where I purchased everything below. The only downside is that since they don't have a website that you can purchase items from, I can't link anything. But I'm sure you guys would be able to find something super cute and similar in your local Home Goods. 

I recently purchased the Google Home Mini on a whim, basically because it came in a bundle but I thought, "why not try it out?" And I'm so glad I did! I had been thinking for a while in the past about buying a similar product but really didn't think that I would put it to that much use. After a few days of using it, I had wished I'd gotten one sooner! 

The last time I shared with you guys music that I'm currently loving was back in 2017. That was obviously a little while ago so I think its safe to say I'm currently obsessing over tons of new music since then. Here's the music that's at the top of my list that I'm currently loving and think you guys totally need to check out too!:

I've always liked James Bay's music, but during the past few weeks I've completely fell in love. I recently saw him live at the Beacon Theatre in NYC and I loved his performance!! I'm loving his new single with Julia Michaels, "Peer Pressure" and I even think that the music video is worth checking out too. Its simplicity is really what makes it just that good. 

Guys, I don't know about you but I am soooo happy Spring is finally here! Which means that summer is just around the corner!! I never used to be a warm weather person and my favorite season was once winter... (December baby!) But, these past few New York winters have completely turned me off from cold, snow, and any weather event associated with the season so needless to say, I'm excited for the warmer months.

Warmer weather also means that there is so much to look forward to this spring and summer. It's the season of weddings, graduations and just having a good time! I can’t believe that my little sister is graduating high school next year and heading off to college... I have no idea where the time went! She's already began asking me what I'm getting her as a graduation gift but she needs to slow her role.... she has a whole year left, lol. So I guess that means I have plenty of time to prepare.

For those of you that know someone celebrating a special occasion this year like a graduation, I have to introduce you the perfect invitations and gift cards to go along with your perfect gift.

A few weeks ago, I took a trip to New Orleans and I can immediately say it is by far one of my FAVORITE cities!! It is a city literally for everyone. I was in NOLA for 5 days 4 nights (originally only 4 days 3 nights but due to bad weather back home, my flight was cancelled. To be honest, I wasn't complaining, lol. 

Though this isn't a travel guide,  I want to share with you all some of the best spots and my highlights from The Big Easy.

I don't know about you guys but I feel like I've been seeing Drunk Elephant non-stop all over YouTube and some blogs. Of course, being curious, I wanted to see what all the hype was about. Now I also don't know about you guys, but before I commit to buying pretty much anything, I love to read/ watch product reviews to first see what other people are saying. To my surprise, I went into Sephora a few weeks ago (also around my b-day) and they happen to have this Drunk Elephant duo as the birthday gift! Obviously a perfect opportunity for me to try out two of their most popular products!

Hey guys!! I know, I know, its been a while :/ I've been trying to get back on a schedule of blogging but its been so hard. I've been working lately on a couple posts so I have a few lined up for the next few weeks. 

But today, I wanted to share with you all somethings things I recently picked up from Bath and Body Works. I'm sure we'd all agree when I say that they have some of the best scented products ever! I've linked everything below so if you're interested in an item, go ahead and click away!

Back in October, I went on a two week vacation to Europe. I visited Spain, France and Italy for the first time and it was amazing. The best part was that it was on a cruise which made it a lot more fun because I love cruising! I was aboard the current biggest ship in the world, Royal Caribbean's Symphony of the Seas.
