I’m sure many of you may know by now but TODAY the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 is open for Public Access! That means if you are not a Nordstrom cardholder (like myself), you can finally take advantage of the infamous sale. This is the first year I will be participating in this sale. I am looking for any great summer to fall transitional pieces, anything I may need for my wardrobe, any unique or great fall pieces.
I thought it’s only appropriate to share a few of my current favorite picks. Click the photo for details!!
With the new year half-way over, I thought it was time for me to take a vacation. So I did. I flew down to New Orleans. It was my first time there. My sister and brother-in-law hosted me and were my local tour guides. There are A LOT of things to do in New Orleans, it just depends on how much you want to spend. There are a lot of free things to do, and also a lot of not-so-free things to do. Depending on what is “fun” to you, there is something for everyone.
I’m not a night-life person. I love art, history, parks, and food. So we did a lot of those things. With that said, here are a few places that I visited. These places are all free. Of course, there are a ton of different tours available if you don’t have a local tour guide.
While there are a lot of different things to do in New Orleans, I enjoyed just driving and walking down the streets. I didn’t take a lot of photos of the “normal” streets, but I found the architecture interesting and unique. They’re all different colors, with different architectural designs, but all very charming in their own ways. There are definitely French & Spanish influences in some of these homes.
And the Mercedes-Benz dome, we kept driving pass it so I thought “why not take a picture” so I did. It was cool.

Are you looking to make extra money on the side? Or do you just want to get rid of some old clothes? Whether you need the extra money or just need to clear out your closet, here are a few places you can turn to to help you sell your clothes.
I’ve used all of these methods at some point of my life, and I can say that they work. While these ideas may not make you a millionaire, they are great platforms where you can make extra money selling your clothes:
1) Plato’s Closet/Local thrift stores that buy: I put this one first because I think this is the quickest way to see results. You bring your unwanted clothes to them, they sort it out and give you a price for the clothes they want to buy from you. Now granted, sometimes these stores may take a lot or nothing at all from you so the cash you make may vary. Regardless, this option will still give you something.
2) Thred Up: Thred Up is an online platform that buys your gently used clothes or put it on cocosignment (meaning they’ll give you the money after your items has been sold). Their website has a calculator page that helps give you an idea on how much you could make and what brands you can send to them. Also, thred up conveniently sends you their dotted bag to your front door, making shipping easy for you. READ MORE
Last week was International Women’s Day. A day to celebrate and recognize the movement for women’s rights. I wanted to recognize that day because it’s important, and I could not not include it in a blog post.
I’ve been blessed to have many strong women in my life. Women who inspires me, empowers me, and challenges me. Women who are courageous and bold, women who are compassionate and kind, women who are strong and intellectual, women who are caring and humble…they’ve shown me that strength and courage are not mutually exclusive to kindness and humility.READ MORE
