The Holiday Season is just around the corner and it's time to start preparing to buy your friends and family gifts.
I wanted to put together a gift guide of products that I genuinely love and own or
products from brands that I truly believe in.
It is extremely important to me that I share products and brands that I love
so that I know you guys will love them too.

On Thursday I got the incredible opportunity to attend the grand opening of the NEW Gordman's store in Greensburg, IN. Visit Gordmans.com to find the nearest store closest to you!
So what's the big deal? You'll find out in this post!
Heading to the event it was absolutely freezing and rainy outside so what better to do than shop!! Am I right!? The New Store is located at 650 Greensburg Commons Shopping Center, Greensburg IN.
Gordmans is changing the game when it comes to shopping on a budget! They work hard to offer you more deals and more style than you've ever seen before! With big brands and smaller prices at every turn. You don't have to hunt for the best treasures because everything is already at the lowest possible price!
I am a girl that loves a good deal, so Gordmans is the WAY TO GO!
Walking in the store I was instantly impressed! They had an incredible layout that makes shopping easy. With clothes on one side, home decor on the other, and Amazing holiday decorations toward the front. They have quite literally everything you could ever want!
As a girl that LOVES clothes I was on the hunt for great styles for my upcoming photo-shoots and needless to say I found everything I could have dreamed of. I found great brands like Nike, Adidas, Express, Levi's, and Guess. The selection is HUGE and you can't go wrong.
Curious What I snagged?
Let's take a look!
The first things I went for were workout attire!
This adidas hoodie was so cute! and ONLY $26.99 , I couldn't pass it up!
Okay also! Leggings that fit me and don't fall down are a rarity so I was so excited to find these Nike leggings that are high-waisted and an XS.
I picked up the leggings and an adorable Puma sports bra to match. Needless to say these are my new favorite go-to workout items.
AND THESE SHOES!!! When I saw these I think I instantly fell head over tennis-shoe! Literally!!
They are super cool looking and unlike any other shoe I have owned so I could resist! The grey goes perfect with so many workout outfits and most importantly they are soooo comfy!!!
Sports Bra: $7.89 compared to $20.99
Shoes: $46.99 compared to $80
Moving on to a more dressy side of things.....DRESSES ARE MY GO TO
If you have ever seen my closet, dresses are a go-to for me and make up over half of my closet. A dress is such a classic piece that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion and what you are feeling for that event or day. Express dresses have always been one of my favorites because of the styles and fit that they offer.
Both of these dresses were ONLY $14.99 compared to a whopping $79.99
Gordmans has everything you have wanted from clothes, purses, hair accessories, and even Home decor!
It is everything you want all in one store and at amazing prices! You can't beat it!
So, head to Gordmans! Let me know if you have any questions about the new store opening or selection. I’m sure to be back to start gifting and making my home ready for the holiday's in a few weeks!

As a student and blogger I seem to always be on the go. Whether that be to class, the gym, or the next travel destination to get the perfect shot in my next photo, I am constantly going somewhere. As a girl, I feel the need to be the next Mary Poppins. Therefore, I carry a lot in my bag. I am the type of person that likes to be over-prepared rather than under-prepared. Of course I have my purse that seems to never be clean, but I also need a bag to carry my portfolio with all my (great) ideas, my laptop (basically my child), Oh and don't forget the charger because well.... you can't forget that.
I've looked around for the "perfect" bag forever to keep everything organized while I am on the go. You see... I am a perfectionist and so finding a bag that fits my "standards" for bags (yes that is a thing) is very unlikely.
Until...... I found the PERFECT bag!
Also no I am not being paid to say all of this I genuinely LOVE this brand, what it stands for, and of course THEIR BAG and the DESIGN of the bag.
Okay enough talking, let's get into what you really wanna see... THE BAG!!! Duhhhhh
Okay seriously HOW CUTE IS IT!!! And... the best part! It's a backpack! so my shoulder can survive through my adventures.
It's called : The Rosa Pak
Basically, it was designed with style, functionality, and everything in between. It was designed FOR women on the go. To allow them to have the style they want, and stay organized while being comfortable. HECK YES!! SIGN ME UP! Oh AND the price tag won't break your bank. As a college gal, this is extremely important! It holds your everyday essentials and more!
Let's take a look at the details of the bag.
This bag has everything and more!
But not only do I love the bag, I love the mission that Parker Design Co. stands behind.
When I choose brands I love, I choose brands that support what I support. I choose brands that are doing more with their business than just selling product and that is exactly why I love Parker Design Co.
Parker Design Co. Mission is to :
Positively Impact The World
Upon purchase of a Parker Design product, they will contribute $5 into their Random Act of Kindness Fund, or as they like to call it a PAK (Parker Act of Kindness) Fund. This fund makes a random act of kindness possible at the end of every month. As the fund continues to grow in scale, so do the acts.
PAK’s are random, and their sole purpose is to make this world just a little bit better by spreading kindness to those around us.
They also encourage all of their customers to pay it forward by including 5 PAK cards with every purchase. These cards are meant to be left behind for each Random Act of Kindness aka PAK that you do.
They want to not only provide an exceptional product, but create a community that is centered around positively impacting this world.

Have you ever been out in public and felt unsafe? Do you always have your pepper spray in your hand and wonder is that enough?
My safety is always a top concern for myself, and my family. As a blogger and influencer I am constantly on the go and traveling. Thanks to Aubry Lane I feel safer then I ever have before.
So What is AUBRY LANE?
Aubry Lane is a first of its kind. A safety technology and fashion company. Founded to help build a new market to provide safety to women and children using a fashion approach. Can I get a heck yeah!!! They bring to market a first of its kind emergency cell phone, SMS notification, and GPS tracking device and design and manufacture quality leather handbags to hide the Amulet.
Yeah you heard me right!
FASHION AND SAFETY
Each bag is constructed from the highest quality materials. Aubry Lane integrates fashion and technology into each unique bag, ensuring both style and security.
The styles are incredible and super fashionable!
The best bit is that as a blogger I am always on the go and traveling and the amulet works WORLDWIDE.
And... If you lose your phone don't worry, you can track your bag by logging into your account on the computer!
HOW IT WORKS:
The Amulet sends your exact geographic location, a text saying help me and periodic updates to all your programmed emergency contacts. Then, it cycles through calling each one until you can reach someone. The text message from the Amulet tells you Date, Time, Speed, Altitude, Battery Percentage, and a Google Maps link to you/your bag’s exact location.
Incredible am I right?!
A couple months ago I saw an Instagram page filled with hand-made jewelry and I fell in LOVE.
Jewelry is something I love only IF I can find the perfect piece. I am super picky when it comes to pieces, I love simple pieces that are classy and you could wear everyday.
Needless to say I found the perfect pieces that are handmade and created by an incredible woman named Meg Goodman.
Her pieces that she creates are stunning, unique, and breathtaking. She combines classy, delicate, and charming all in one. Not to mention she is the definition of a BOSS BABE!
Meg Goodman is 18 years old and attends Auburn University. She was raised in Atlanta, GA and has the cutest dog in the world named Ripley. She has been running Beaded by Meg for 3 years now and it is her pride and joy!
Meg learned how to make jewelry in 6th grade when she had to do a project on Renaissance jewelry. She bought herself a book from Michael's and made a prototype of what she thought the jewelry would look like. The necklace kept falling apart the entire day of our "Renaissance fair" but, at least it was a start.
She was getting bored of the jewelry in stores and that everyone had the same things. One day She made a piece of jewelry going into her sophomore year of high school. She wore it to school the next day and almost 30 people bought one from her, she had to keep a running list on her phone! And from there she created the Instagram and Etsy page that you now know today as Beaded by Meg.
" Most of my inspiration comes from elements in nature such as the moon, stars, rock, or bone. When I decide to design a necklace it isn't a thinking down and sitting process. It's almost as if it just comes to me and I know what my next piece is supposed to look like. "
" I have always loved creating jewelry from stretchy bead bracelets in kindergarten to really crazy looking earrings I would make for my mom (she has always supported my jewelry endeavors). It is so rewarding to make jewelry now. Each piece I make is made for someone to be proud of and show off their style. It's super crazy how things go from selling necklaces at school to selling worldwide and to boutiques across the country. "
A classic favorite of mine is "Coco"which has the chanel logo; it's very classy and dainty! Plus you get lots of bang for your buck. Another necklace I find myself wearing all the time is either the "Disco" or the "Gold/ Gunmetal Circle Dangle Choker". These necklaces are perfect for layering or just to throw on with a t-shirt!

These shorts are sooo cute for summer! I love the vintage lace look on the side of them. It adds the perfect feminine, classy, and modest look. Speaking of modest! Mom's these are parent approved shorts! The length isn't too short, and they are super comfortable! I don't have to worry about pulling them down, etc. Not to mention they fit perfectly on my waist!
Okay, I wore these to the mall and I got soooooo many questions about them! These shoes are my dream heel to wear everyday. They go with every outfit, have the coolest details, and my favorite bit... THEY ARE THE COMFIEST SHOES I OWN. AND ARE HEELS! I am a sucker for heels that I never want to take off, and don't have to because they don't hurt my feet!
