Life Lately + Weekend Links

New suede tassels were shipped to a boutique yesterday! If you're interested in purchasing one or have question about custom colors visit my Etsy page or leave a comment below!

  1. Did you see this week's post with Barrington Gifts? I have been using my new tote non-stop for school almost everything else!
  2. Throwback to my four years on the tennis team....I wish my outfits were as chic as Amy's! Swooning over everything in the Tory Sport collection!
  3. One of my favorite things about NYFW, besides the shows of course, is all the street style! Its so fun seeing all my favorite bloggers dress up in their most stylish, eye-catching outfits! I especially loved this look on Julia!
  4. Richmond has SUCH a great food scene and it is my mission to try as many places as I can which I wrote about in my school's online newspaper. I'm trying out Whisk this weekend and I'm so excited to try these macaron ice cream sandwiches!

5. To all my fellow beauty junkies...I'm sure you already know about the new Glossier Super serums!!!  I received the Super Pure in the mail yesterday and I'm already obsessed! It feels soothing on your skin and leaves it feeling soft and clean!

Pretty in Pink with Barrington Gifts

I want to start off by wishing everyone a happy Monday and also apologizing for the radio silence over here on the blog!! Sophomore year has been no joke between 5 classes, a new job, rush week for my business fraternity, and just settling into a new semester. 

Today's post is all about one of my new favorite brand, Barrington Gifts! I have been totally crushing on their products for a while now and after they kindly sent me one of their new  fall St. Anne Tote I'm dying to order something else! Maybe  this pouch to match?! 

This tote has become my go-to 'carry-all' bag that I use for going to class, running errands, heading to the gym, or even going out. For all you college gals out there, if you are looking to transition from a backpack to a tote, I would highly recommend  this one! Inside the roomy tote there are three side pockets and one zippered pouch. And the best part? You can personalize the entire thing! Everything from the colors of the stripe, the style of your monogram, and the trim of the leather is up to you! I chose to go with a pink and navy color scheme because I knew it would go with my wardrobe! 

Pink walls, coffee in hand, and a cute new bag...does it get any better? I think not.

What I'm wearing: Top (purchased from the Lilly Pulitzer Sale - here are similar ones 1, 2)
// Shorts // Sandals // Watch // Rings // Bag c/o

Alaska 2016

I'm so excited to share the pictures from my recent trip to Alaska! After spending weeks trying to decide where to go, we finally decided on Alaska. None of us have ever taken a trip like this one but it was a nice change from a typical beach vacation! Alaska is truly so beautiful...I mean it was hard not stopping to take pictures of the gorgeous scenery around every corner. 

After flying to Seattle to pick up my brother, we flew in to Anchorage where we stayed for two nights. 

On our first full day we drove from Anchorage to Seward where we took a cruise to see the glaciers. It was 6 hours and we got to see orcas, belugas, puffins, sea lions, and a bald eagle! The actual glacier was so cool to was huge in size and had the prettiest blue tint. You could actually hear some parts of the glacier breaking off and falling into the water - it sounded like thunder!

The Aialik Glacier in the Kanai Fjord Peninsula!

Denali was on our must-see list so we decided to just stay in a hotel inside the National Park to get the full experience since the park was about 4 hours from Anchorage. Along the way, we stopped for lunch in Talkeetna, the cutest little town with so much charm and culture. 

Entering the Denali National Park!

My brother and dad's debut on the blog:)!

We hiked on our first day at Denali - doing the Mount Healy Overlook Trail which ended up being about 5 miles and a couple thousand feet of elevation! But we made it to the top and were greeted by some spectacular views.

The second day was a bit chillier when we headed out for our hike but it got warmer during the day. We did the Savage River Trail where we hiked along a river for most of the trip. 

Hey Rachel:)! 

Overall, we had an amazing trip - one we will never forget! If you ever get the chance to go to Alaska  you absolutely should!
