French, please!

I love French manicures, but I hate spending money to get them done, since they usually chip within a few days. Chipped nails drive me crazy, so I always end up taking all of the polish off, making my French mani last about 4 days, if I'm lucky. I've tried the gel, but they don't last as long as regular gel polish. My newfound solution? Sally Hansen's French Manicure White Tip Pen!
 

It's basically a marker for you nails! It's so easy to do a French mani with this! After I paint the white, I take a q-tip dipped in nail polish remover and even out the lines, then paint a top coat! And for $6.49, this is much, much more cost-effective! 

Have y'all tried this pen? Have a great Tuesday!

Review: Hana Hair Dryer

A team member from Hana contacted me about a month ago and offered to send me a hair dryer from Hana. Of course, I happily agreed to review one of their HANA Air Premiere Hair Dryers. I received the dryer about three weeks ago, but I had it sent to my parents' house, so I had to wait a while to try it out!

I have long, thick, curly hair, so I only blow dry all of my hair before straightening it, which is before a big event or going out. However, I blow dry my bangs daily, so I was excited to test out the new dryer! I usually use a cheap Conair, which does the trick.
 
 
I was so excited to open my HUGE package when I got home. Inside were tons of goodies--an eyelash curler, a traveling case for a flat iron, and a brush--along with the dryer.
 
The travel case
 
I tried out the dryer, and honestly, I wasn't extremely impressed. It worked, but I definitely would not pay $195 for it. It also doesn't get as hot as my Conair, so it took a bit longer to dry all of my hair. Overall, this is a good dryer, but I'm not sure I'd be willing to pay almost $200 for it!
 
Have you tried anything from Hana? What did you think of it?

Everyday I....

I'm definitely a creature of habit, so I thought it would be fun to share some things that I do everyday!  Everyday I...
 
...start my day with coffee, 
 
wear these 4 pieces,
(David Yurman bracelets and ring, Wristology watch)
 
watch Netflix as I'm getting ready in the morning, 
 
wear makeup (I have no idea how girls don't--I feel naked without mine!!), 

incorporate a monogram in my outfit, 

make myself a Post-It of my daily to-do list, 

eat the same salad for at least one meal at the sorority house, since I'm so picky, 

drink a Diet Dr. Pepper...or 3, 
 
and use only Sharpie pens--love them. 

What are some of your everyday activities? Have a wonderful Wednesday!

If you're ever in need of a "tester" for this wallet, I'd be more than willing to help!
 
 
I promise it's not too much for you to ask.

Nice Ice

I'm sure it will come as no surprise to y'all that I've had my wedding planned as far back as I can remember. In 6th grade, my best friend and I use to email pictures from our "dream weddings" back and forth to each other. Since I've had my wedding planned for so long, you can bet I've had my dream engagement ring picture saved for years. Although I definitely know what I want, I love looking at gorgeous ice on Pinterest. Here are some of my favorites:
 
Jessica Simpson's ring from Nick Lachey
 
Major bling
 
Harry Winston, of course!

The three "strands" on this ring are perfect for Ecclesiastes 4:12, which says "A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."
 
Love the sapphires around the big diamond!
 
Bethenny Frankel's ring from Jason Hoppy
 
Did you think I'd leave out Kate's beautiful rock?
 
What does your dream ice look like? Happy Thursday!

Wednesday Ramblings of Miss Southern Prep

I got some beautiful pink carnations from my sorority this week, and since we only have 2 vases in our apartment, I had to use a Lilly tumbler to hold some, but I am actually LOVING the way the flowers match the pink of the alligator.
 
Adam Scott is gorgeous....can I just throw that out there?
 
I loved Don't Be Tardy last night. #sorrynotsorry

I've basically checked out of this semester. After a huge sorority event I planned took place this weekend, I decided that this semester is officially over (according to me)....which means this may be happening way more than necessary. Oops.
 
I saw Chris Young in concert on Sunday night! He had such a great personality, and his voice....ahh, love it.
 

I cannot stop listening to "Hey Pretty Girl" by Kip Moore. It is seriously too cute!
 
What are you loving today? Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Olive Boutique

I recently received the cutest summer frock from Olive Boutique. The dress they sent me was called the Pawley's Girl Dress.
 
 
Here's how I paired it for an afternoon lunch on Sunday: with gold Jacks, my gold monogram necklace, pearl studs, and my gold Wristology watch. I love the ruffle at the top! I ordered a medium and was a little worried, because I have a larger bust area, but it fit perfectly!
Olive Boutique


Olive Boutique has so many adorable pieces, and all are super-affordable! Here are some I'm loving:
 
PERFECT for my beloved Gamecocks!

Love this for winter
 
Lace + Bow=Preppy Perfection

This preppy top is only $18!
 
Love the stripes!
 
What's your favorite piece from Olive Boutique? Happy Tuesday!
