My Morning Routine

Going into 2021 I’ve been working on curating the perfect morning routine! While it changes almost every day and I am still working on getting up earlier everyday, I have implemented some different tasks into my routine this year that have been a game changer. I have never been a morning person and while I am still working on becoming one, I actually can say I look forward to my mornings now!

Making my bed first thing

I’ve always heard the saying “make your bed everyday and you will have accomplished the first task of the day”. To be completely honest I have never been the person to make their bed in the morning. My thought is what is the point of making my bed if I’ll just be getting back into it later. Well, this year I finally gave in and started making my bed every morning. The little task in the morning sets my whole tone for the day and honestly keeps me from crawling back in my bed each morning.

If you don’t make your bed each morning, take it from me you will already feel so much more productive for the day!

Essential Oil Diffusor

Another product I have loved using every morning is my essential oil diffuser. After making my bed each morning, I move on to picking out which oil I am going to use (the hardest decision for sure!). Some of my favorites are Eucalyptus, Lavender, Peppermint, and Tea Tree.

It has been such a great way to start each morning!

Change into a comfy outfit

I have found that I am so much more productive for the day when I change out of my Pj’s first thing. Whether you are woking from home, attending lectures all day, or are wanting to get a workout in before you start the day, changing into the clothes for that occasion will help motivate you a little more to get it done!

Start a skin care routine

Some items that I believe are a must for my morning skin care!

These products help in keeping my skin clear, bright, and soft!

5. Enjoy your favorite morning drink (Of course mine is coffee)

My favorite way to enjoy my coffee lately has been by frothing a little bit of oat milk and creamer, then pouring cold brew over the top. It has been SO good! My recent go-to creamer has been the Oatmeal Cookie Creamer and let me tell you it took me months before finally finding it at Target.

Also since using a frother my coffee tasted like I got it from a coffee shop. Thank goodness for that because that means less Starbucks trips, and let me tell you I definitely needed to put a stop to my everyday Starbucks run!

Styling Princess Polly’s Winter Collection

Princess Polly has been one of my favorite places to shop since I was in High School. I genuinely love all of their pieces and was lucky enough to get the opportunity to work with Princess Polly this month! They seriously always have the most trendy pieces and this month I chose a combination of loungewear as well as some statement pieces. For this collaboration, I was given a discount code “WEBB” that you can use for 20% off your purchase. I also posted a mini try-on haul to my Instagram stories, which is now labeled as “Princess Polly” in my highlights. Along with that, I have posted a more in depth youtube video describing all the pieces as well as showing you different ways to style them!

If you know me, you know that I am always wearing neutrals. My go-to colors are White, Black, and Nude. When I saw this two piece, I knew I had to get it. I didn’t know where or when I’d where it, but it had to be in my closet. I have been into flare pants lately and to style it with a little bra top, I thought it was the cutest combo. With that being said, this set also gave me a Harry Styles vibe, just making it another reason it had to be in my closet.

I have been living in loungewear, so I knew I had to have this set. It’s the perfect combination of comfy and cute. It also gives you the option of dressing this set up with booties and a cute jacket or dress it down for a night in with your friends. I saw it on the model and knew I needed this in my life and I have been living in it ever since!

The last piece I got I was OBSESSED with from the first moment I saw it. I have been big into leather anything lately and when I saw it was a blazer mini dress, it was ultimately giving me big New York City vibes. While they show it as a dress on the website, it could be styled as an oversized leather blazer which gives you more opportunities to wear this beautiful piece.

I hope this little haul from Princess Polly gave you some fashion inspiration or helped you pick out some pieces for the new season! If you want check out my Try-on Haul on youtube giving a more in depth review/look at all these pieces click on the link below!

Day three’s outfit I’m wearing head to toe Princess Polly!

I definitely live by the phrase “ you can never go wrong with a little black dress” and this one from Princess Polly did not disappoint. It gives a bit more of a business vibe with the collared neck and tie detail, but pairing it with cute booties really tied it all together for a super cute look.

Day trip to Newport, OR

How to get the most out of your day trip!

24 HOURS IN NEWPORT, OREGON

The small town of Newport, Oregon is full of exciting things to do for both locals and tourists who are visiting the Oregon Coast. Whether you are looking for all the best food spots, some fun adventures, or just a chill beach day, Newport offers it all. 

Here is how I spent my day in Newport, OR:

  1. Coasties Roasties

I don’t know about you, but I start every morning with coffee! 

When I stumbled across this cute local coffee shop I had to stop and see what it was all about. They offer almost every coffee drink you could imagine with some fun drink options around the holiday seasons. I got an iced oat milk latte and have to say it was delicious!

They also offer plenty of pastry and breakfast options, so if you’re looking for a breakfast spot this is the place to stop.

They even recently won “Best local coffee shop and Best place to get a coffee” in Lincoln County!

  1. NYE Beach

This is my go-to beach spot when stopping in Newport, OR! 

They have the cutest little downtown area filled with local restaurants, small boutiques, and lots of fun little spots to check out just a few blocks away from the beach. 

This beach is pet friendly and perfect to spend the day with the family, play around when the weather is warm, and watch some of the prettiest sunsets.

  1. Yaquina Head Lighthouse

The Yaquina Head Lighthouse, located at Yaquina Head, is a lighthouse you’ll want to check out while you’re in Newport. This 93-foot lighthouse is the tallest lighthouse in Oregon and is one of the oldest structures in the city. 

This spot also has some of the most beautiful views of the ocean to take in while you are there.

4. Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum

This museum is jam-packed with weird, silly, and fun facts you won’t believe! The exhibit is great fun for the entire family and is one of the best ways to spend an afternoon in Newport.

Located right next to the museum, is the wax museum where you can go through interactive exhibits and take pictures with your favorite celebrities’ wax figures. They have Taylor Swift, Star Wars Characters, and plenty more!

Just a short walk over from the Ripley’s Believe it or not Museum, this is the perfect place to eat as they have everything from seafood to burgers, there is something to please everyone! 

I got the pesto chicken burger on a gluten free bun (yes, they offer gluten free options!) and it was so good, I need to go back for another asap.

This restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor seating with the most beautiful views of the water and sea lions nearby to make for such a fun dining experience.

One of my biggest goals right now is trying to implement reading into my daily routine. I’m going to try and read a book once a month, now let’s see if I actually will stick to that!

Her hobbies include yogalates, frat parties, and plotting to kill Will Bachman, a childhood friend who grievously wronged her”. I already know this book is going to have me on the edge of my seat. What better book to start off my little challenge with than this?

The Pillow Every College Student Needs

Other than the pillows beings used to sleep on, there has to be pillows for decoration to complete the room. There are endless options when it comes to pillows, especially for college students. The pillows can range from body, accent, and even floor pillows. Below is the best pillow I found to help my room still look cute, while providing a comfortable place to do school work.

A backrest pillow, especially this one from Therapedic has been a must during this school year. This pillow is a great way to make your room cozy while still adding a bit of personal flair to your decor.  Whether you’re using it to study, to get cozy and watch Netflix after a long day of class, the back rest pillow allows for so many uses.

How I styled my Therapedic Backrest Pillow

The backrest pillow has been a life saver when it comes to studying and cramming work into all one night because it allows you to read, study, or work on projects from anywhere you want. Studying in bed becomes perfectly do-able. They all become perfectly cozy and comfortable places to get schoolwork done when you invest in a backrest pillow.

It is supportive of the back and neck all while providing maximum comfort with its cotton and polyester materials. When not being used for studying or homework, this pillow looks great when sitting on a made bed. The one I linked above comes in Grey, Taupe, or Navy making it easy to tie together any room.

For your dorm room or even college apartment, do not forget about these pillow!  This pillow is a must for helping you knock out some homework from your bed or to make your room a little brighter, this pillow is a must! 

My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now officially live! This year’s Nordstrom sale begins on August 4th-10th for ‘Icon’, ‘Ambassador’, or ‘Influencer’ status, and opens to the public on the 19th.

This year Nordstrom is allowing customers to preview the sale before it is live. Since Products tend to sell out so fast, I highly recommend snagging the items you like ASAP, and anything that doesn’t work out you can always return. Nordstrom seriously has the BEST return policy. Free returns and no time limit, it does not get better than that!

I kept my blog post super simple and straight to the point. When shopping at the sale this year some of the best finds were booties, denim, and sweaters. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the first look at brand new products for fall at a fraction of the price. It’s the perfect time to stock up on basics at a low price, as well as get ready for the back to school and fall season.

I will link all my favorite finds below, Happy Shopping!
