9 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Our Marriage

Big news — I finally put together the relationship Q&A I’ve been working on for approximately a month. Even though it took a while for me to sit down with Vagner and write this up, I am so excited to share it with y’all! Vagner is much more comfortable behind the scenes, which is why it’s so special when I convince him to co-write a post with me.

For those who have been following for a while, you know that I spent a lot of time writing about us during the Tumblr days. I don’t really have a reason why I stopped. Once we got married, it just felt like we’d rather be living our lives than writing about it! Now that we aren’t newlyweds anymore, I do feel like I have the mental capacity to write about our love life without feeling like I’m sharing too much. I’m going to be sharing a lot more about the things we’ve struggled with, the victories we’ve shared, and more.

Tory Burch Miller Dupes (& Ways To Save!)

When I first saw Tory Burch Miller sandals in person and glanced at the price, my reaction was, “I’m good, luv — enjoy.” (Bonus points if you get the meme I’m referencing.) I didn’t understand why a pair of sandals cost so much money, so I bought a cheaper pair of shoes and kept it moving. Little did I know that I’d eventually fall in love with Miller Sandals and become obsessed with finding them on sale. If you’re wondering, “When do Tory Burch sandals go on sale?” or “How do I find shoes that look like Miller sandals?”, I GOTCHU. I want to share my tips and tricks for getting a good deal!

How Much Do Bloggers Make? My First Ever Income Report

Look, I’ve always been nosy. When I was in the 4th grade, I figured out my dad’s email password and read as many emails as I could before he caught me. (If my future children are anything like I was as a kid, I’ll need as much prayer as you’re able to send. Thanks.) Even before I started my blog, I loved reading income reports from bloggers and finding out just how much they made from sponsored posts, affiliate links, native ads and more.

I finally checked and realized I’ve been telling everyone I launched last summer when it was actually November 2017. Time flies when you’re having fun, I guess! I officially started to pursue social media influencing nine months ago.

Best At Home Teeth Whitening: My Experience with Smile Brilliant

My smile is one of the things I’ve never really been super self-conscious about — thanks to my mom and dad paying for braces when I was a little girl, I’m actually pretty keen on my teeth. (Hilariously, Vagner has a tooth gap and I think it’s the cutest thing in the world and kind of miss mine.)

Even though I love my smile, I’m always sipping drinks that have the potential my teeth. I can’t ever give up Diet Coke or coffee, and I’m not mad about it — but because I love dark-colored drinks, I’ve thought about teeth whitening for a while. I’m so excited to partner with Smile Brilliant for today’s post!

2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Is It Worth It? My Favorite Items & More

I walked out of the fitting room exhausted and reveling in victory. I was tired because I’d tried on a dozen items in record time — don’t scoff until you’ve tried slithering in and out of Spanx leggings without breaking a sweat — and victorious because I’d conquered my first real attempt at the Nordstrom sale. I’ve avoided posting about the #nsale just because fashion blogging isn’t as engaging to me as it once was, but when the urge hit to drive to International Plaza and check out Nordstrom, I couldn’t ignore it. But is the Nordstrom sale worth it? Here are my thoughts. But first…
