thredUp Review

IMG_3401

I don’t know about you, but I love shopping for clothes online. I am always looking for new sites to try because I like to have an eclectic wardrobe. The hard part is though that if I’ve never shopped a certain site, I don’t know how things run or if it is legit or not. I’m pretty brave though with these things, and make sure to study return policies or reviews of the company beforehand. Recently I had bee hearing a lot about thredUp, a company that claims to be the easiest way to shop and buy high-quality second-hand clothes. While I can’t speak for the sales part (I’m selling my clothes on Poshmark at the moment) I can give you an honest review as a buyer. For the record, all of these opinions are my own, and I’m not working with the company on this review.

Updated Hungryroot Review Pt. 1

IMG_3367

A while back I posted a review on our food delivery service, Hungryroot. Since I posted last, the company halted all deliveries for several months to reboot their procedures, so we only just re-subscribed. While we’ve had a few snags lately, overall my boyfriend and I absolutely LOVE and have come to depend on this service.

Hair Care Routine – Winter 2018

IMG_3360

Growing up one of the things I struggled the most with was my hair. I have very dry, coarse hair that is INCREDIBLY curly. I never really learned, nor cared to learn how to work with the curl. I just wanted it straight. When I was heading into college straighteners were just becoming popular and more technologically advanced. It took me forever to learn how to straighten my hair myself. I just kept wishing I could have a blow out at home.

Gluten Free Dairy Free Disney World

We just got back from an AMAZING three days in Disney. I was worried though because I usually have enough problems eating at a regular restaurant, but was super scared that I wouldn’t be able to eat in the parks. Boy was I wrong. I did a ton of research before we left and wound up making plans to traverse the different parks and resorts in search of different foods that I wanted to try.

CO2 Lift Mask Review

IMG_3303

I love following influencers on social media. I am one of those incredibly impressionable millennials who purchases something based on the suggestion of something I see on Instagram. I don’t consider this to be a bad thing at all – this is one of my favorite things about social media (although I imagine my wallet would beg to differ…). Recently I saw a few people I follow brag about the CO2 Lift and I knew I had to try it.

Gift Guide for Her: Valentine’s Day Edition

Valentine’s Day is so hard. I feel like when you’re single, it can be super depressing unless you make the most of it and celebrate Galentine’s Day with your girls. When you’re in a relationship it barely registers as a holiday. My boyfriend and I recently were like “oh yeah, its almost Valentine’s Day.” Strange “holiday.” We’ll be celebrating a combination of our anniversary and VDay this year on a mini vacation, so we won’t be exchanging gifts. But I wanted to put together some cute ideas that you might be able to show to your guy if he is looking for something cute to pick up. Or, something to buy for yourself, just because.

How to Succeed on Poshmark

IMG_9001

I absolutely love shopping for new clothes. I’m guilty of making a few too many purchases online and then being overwhelmed when my mailbox is overflowing when I get home from work. But I love getting to try new things and experimenting with different styles. Unfortunately though I have a very, very small closet. I’ve written about this before – the one very effective way I can feed my passion and have room to keep my clothes is by using the Poshmark app. This is a service that lets you sell your used or new clothes, makeup and accessories, as well as kids and mens clothes.
