Fall Essentials + Wish List

Fall Essentials + Wish List

This post contains affiliate links.
Considering that I live in California where it’s hot 90% of the time, It’s ridiculous that I’m a fall person. There’s nothing I love more than the cinnamon scent in the air, hot chocolate, and dramatically looking out the window at the leaves falling. I will honestly still wear a sweater if it’s 90 degrees outside. The last half of the year is always the best.

I’ve been full on fall/winter shopping since the middle of summer, to be honest. I may or may not have already worn some of the clothes I got. I just love this time so much! I feel like this is the time where you can see my personal style a lot more, so I’m excited. Here’s what my fall essentials are and my wish list.

Heeled Booties

I’m a boots lover. I have more boots than any other type of shoe. I usually stock up on boots every season because I wear them a lot. I usually wear low heeled boots since I wear them everyday on my day to day. But recently, I bought these heeled Chelsea boots from Asos and I fell in love. They’re actually really comfy and they can easily be worn with every outfit. For a short girl like me, heels are always good so I’m definitely going to be stocking up on more heeled booties and even try to get some fun colors or embroidered ones.

Capri Pants

Okay, where have capri pants been all my life? I’m obsessed. Like I mentioned, I’m kind of short so capris don’t necessarily look like capris, they look like ankle pants but I’m okay with it. Cotton On has amazing capri jeggings which have been my go to. I like that they don’t bunch up at the bottom, especially when wearing boots. It looks so much cleaner. I am on the lookout for some ripped ones, so someone let me know where to buy some!

Lightweight Longline jackets

I’ve pretty much have lived in my denim longline jacket. It’s honestly my favorite thing I own. If you look through my Instagram, you all see that I wear it a lot. Although I’m not letting it go, I do want to polish up my wardrobe and add some longline jackets that are sleek and a bit more dressed up. I love longline anything. I feel like it’s comfier for me and adds an extra touch to an outfit instead of just wearing a regular jacket.

How I Stay Active

How I Stay Active

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of prAna. The opinions and text are all mine.


When I was in college I was super active. I had a job that required me to be moving a lot and of course, I was always out and about with my friends. I wouldn’t say I was super active like going to the gym type, but I was definitely moving a lot more than I do now. Lately, especially with summer coming up, I’m making it a point to actually get up and at least get 10,000 steps in.

How I Stay Active How I Stay Active

During the week I have really early mornings and don’t get home until really late, which adds to the challenge of staying active. So during my lunch I take a very long walk to keep myself moving throughout the day. Thankfully I live near a small mountain that is an easily three mile hike and near a river trail. 

Since I’m still trying to get into the habit of being more active, finding good work out clothes is a challenge. I thankfully got to try some items from prAna and I’m in love! I’ve mentioned this before but I’m a very chill dress so I love clothes that are really comfy and that’s what prAna is. Only using organic cotton, each item is soft and comfortable to move in, plus it helps that they are about the way they source the cotton! I love a company that really cares about doing things the right way. What I love especially from the pants is that they felt durable and not cheap whatsoever so that was a huge plus! I hate when pants feel too thin and like they can tear up easily. The shirt has a built in sports bra so you don’t have to have tons of layers and it feels lightweight and it actually fit perfectly, which is something I was skeptical about. I’m definitely a new fan of prAna!

As I’m getting older I am seeing the benefit of staying active. It’s crazy how I’m noticing I don’t bounce back as easily as I used to, which is hard to embrace but even more of a reason to be active. Even if it’s something as simple as taking a short walk, something is better than nothing!

How to Get Ready for Summer

How to Get Ready for Summer

I was provided Harry’s product but all my opinions are my own.

Summer is among us and as the temperature starts to rise, there is tons of ways we can get ready for it. We may think that it’s just switching out our closet and putting our sweaters away but there’s so much else you could do. So make sure to take care of everything with these helpful tips! Here’s how to get ready for summer.

[Tweet “Get ready for summer with these simple tips!”]

Sunscreen Makeup

It gets hot, we all know that. Everyone wants to rush to get waterproof makeup, but make sure your makeup has some SPF or ingredients that will protect your skin from the harsh sun. Trust me, I hate makeup that melts in the sun, but make sure to get things to protect your skin too! Take care of yourself. I’m a weird person who loves sunscreen and the smell of it, so I’m stoking up.

Smooth Skin, Check

Get your legs or your face ready with Harry’s shaving set. Smooth skin is an absolute must for the summer! Thankfully Harry’s has a trial so you can try their Truman set (including a travel sized shaving gel and blade cover) and all you have to do is cover shipping! I’ve been using this for the last month and I’ve seen a difference compared to my last razor.

No Heat Summer

Every summer I stop applying heat on my hair (only for special occasions) so I can let my hair be it’s natural self. This gives my hair a break plus, why use a hot tool when it’s already hot outside! I usually get products that help my hair during this time and let my natural waves shine.

Out With the Old

I know spring cleaning is a thing but I feel like deep cleaning during every season is important, especially during summer. I feel like summer tends to linger longer, I do live in sunny California after all. Get rid of everything you genuinely don’t need from clothes to makeup. Make sure to start off fresh!

Current Fashion Picks

Current Fashion Picks

I’m currently doing a no buy month, which is fun and a bit stressing. If you didn’t know, I’m a bit of a shopaholic and clothes is my weakness. So I had to step back and look at my closet and find good staple items that worked well with everything. I like how the no buy is helping me see that I don’t need mountains of clothes, just a few key items to make it all work.


I love Vans. I might actually love them more than my white Converse. Classic Vans are so great. I can wear them all the time with leggings or with a casual dress. It makes everything look a tad bit cooler. It’s obviously great to dress an outfit down but cool to pair it with the right dress. I can honestly just be sitting at home and I’ll wear them just because.

Jean Jacket

I’ve talked about my jean jacket before. It’s honestly my ultimate favorite piece ever. The one I have is longline and a bit oversized which is a cute look that I can combine with any outfit I want. But I can just throw it on with everything and it’s all good. I will honestly wear this until it falls apart on me.

Cotton On: Jeggings, Leggings, Tees, and Rompers

At first I was going to separate these BUT the whole reason I love these items are because of Cotton On and Cotton On is actually amazing. Their jeggings are comfortable as heck and so are their leggings. Their simple pocket tee is my go to top at all times. Plus, their rompers are perfectly fitting that I will wear them all summer. P.S. This is NOT sponsored by Cotton On. I just genuinely love them. Haha.

Summer Hair Routine with Vanity Planet

Summer Hair Routine with Vanity Planet

Summer is honestly one of the funnest times of the year. However, I change a lot of things from my all around beauty routine during the summer because the heat is no joke! I’ve done this for a few years now and usually for the summer I stop applying heat to my hair. Thankfully Vanity Planet is here to help me! My hair has not been at its greatest and I’ve been using heavy duty stuff to help, so I’m glad I can tone it down a bit now.

Hair Care

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, then you would know that I dyed my hair a lot the last two years. My last go was completely bleaching my hair which left my hair completely brittle and damaged. That’s one of the reasons I’m nervous for my no heat summer because my hair isn’t at it’s best state. But Vanity Planet’s Remi Hair Treatment works so well for me!

What I hate about other hair masks is that you have to wet your hair first and then dry and then put the mask and then wash it again. For this treatment, I can put it on my dry hair, let it sit and was it off when I shower!

Summer Hair Routine with Vanity Planet

Probably my favorite thing is this Scalp Massaging Shampoo Brush. I’m low key convince that I don’t shampoo my hair properly, plus my scalp tends to flake at times. This is so soothing on the scalp! Seriously who doesn’t love massages? The one downfall is that it’s battery operated so you need to have your own batteries for this.

My favorite after-shower product has been Biolage SmoothProof serum. My hair does tend to get wild and this tames all the fly aways and it keeps my frizz down. I’m also going to be glued to Pinterest looking up simple hairdos that I can recreate. I don’t know how to style my hair super nice, so it’s going to be a challenge!


Vanity Planet has tons of items to help your beauty needs are and they have some awesome coupon codes right now!

If you want to step up your skin care, they currently have 70% off their spin brush by using the code “SpinSpring70.” Want to make sure your hair looks amazing? Use “SpringHair25” to get 25% on anything hair! For all my makeup junkies, get 70% off makeup brushes with “MakeUpSpring70.”
