My Recent Online Purchases

Before college approaches, I have been building up my wardrobe. I have done a lot of online purchases recently and I thought it would be fun to share what I have ordered and then once it comes in do a review of the items and take pictures of them on me!

Old Navy

I have never really shopped much here, but I recently went in and found some amazing shorts.

I went online and bought some shorts, a skirt, and shower shoes (for communal bathrooms...gross right?)

Ocean Palm



I hope you enjoy these recent purchases of mine!! Maybe even get some ideas for your next purchase!!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Haul+ new obsession!

If you have been reading fashion blogs and looking at Instagram lately, you have probably been seeing A LOT of Nordstrom Sale posts and people's personal picks!! Today, instead of showing you my absolute favorites from the sale... I'm going to show you what I actually bought. Of course, I would love a Tory Burch bag or pair of Tory Burch boots, but I bought what I really needed and loved. Let's get into my purchases:

1. Jeans
My wardrobe is transitioning right now! I wore a uniform everyday during high school (not so cute!), so now I'm left with literally 2 pairs of blue jeans. So I thought buying nice jeans while they are on sale and FIT would be a good idea. Plus, Finding jeans that fit my big thighs/butt and proportionally  small waist is always hard. I swear I had a sisterhood of the traveling pants moment....every pair of jeans I tried on fit. I bought 3 pairs of the 'Reese' Jean and one of each of the other pairs!

Halogen Distressed Girlfriend Jeans (reg. 74) // Kut from the Kloth 'Reese' Stretch Straight Leg Ankle Jeans (Encouraging) (reg. 79.50) // Wit & Wisdom 'Super Smooth' Stretch Denim Skinny Jeans (Dark Navy) (reg. 64)

Size & Fit Guide- My Experience:
Halogen Distressed Girlfriend Jeans- I sized about 2 sizes down!! They fit perfectly though!
Kut from the Kloth 'Reese'- I sized one size down from my usual size.
Wit & Wisdom 'Super Smooth'- True to size (for me)!

2. Boots
Love the price and the looks of my NEW Naturalizer all leather boots!
Naturalizer 'Jennings' Knee High Boot (available in brown & wide calf too!) (HERE)
Wide Calf (HERE

3. Rainjacket- (this wasn't on sale BUT I thought the price was great)

My NEW OBSSESSION IS Ebates!! It's a cash back program for online shopping! Of course, I had heard about places like this before (personally always thought they were sketchy), but I was watching a youtuber who was like "if you shop online you HAVE to use this". So I checked it out and next thing you know I have a $25+ check in my mailbox...pretty easy way to get money...even though let's not forget you had to spend some to get it haha! I just thought I'd share the link (HERE)! If you online shop ALL the time like me (i seriously need help haha) you have to check it out!!

NatureBox Unboxing: A Monthly Food Subscription Service

Hi Happy Thursday :) Hope everyone is having a wonderful day! Today, I'm going to unbox a package I recently received in the mail. Naturebox has been all the rage on Youtube, blogs, etc. So I'll try not to bore you will a lot of facts about Naturebox, but it is a monthly subscription snack service ($19.95 for 5 full sized snacks). You can also receive a free trial offer and pay only $2.99 for 1 full sized bag and 4 snack size bags. These snacks contain  NO hydrogenated oils, NO added sugars, NO high fructose corn syrup.
I received my trial box about a month ago and loved it, so I renewed! The following pictures are from my most recent box.

Here is a link to their site:

btw I'm not sponsored by Naturebox (i wish haha) I just really love their boxes!!
Here is the unboxing of my full-size snacks:

 Italian Bistro Pretzels- Love these!! Tastes like that weird to say? But they are so freaking delicious!
Kung Pao Pretzels- probably my least favorite at first...they do grow on you, but they are seriously spicy. If you love that, then you'll probably love these!
 Masa Crisps- AHHH! My ABSOLUTE FAV!! Delicious isn't even an adequate word to describe these little chips. I got these in my sample box and fell in love.
 Lemon Tea Biscuits- I can barely taste the lemon flavor, but I like them. These taste like little shortbread cookies.
 Asiago & Cheddar Cheese Crisps- I was most apprehensive about these, because I've never been a huge fan of cheese crisps. My mind was changed when I tasted these. They literally taste like Cheez-its. So good and so healthy!!
Hopefully you enjoyed my little unboxing!!

Crowd Favorite Dessert: S'mores Cookie

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!
Disclaimer: This is NOT my original recipe and it's obviously all over Pinterest and the Internet! So I'm not trying to pass it off as a new recipe haha :) But I thought I'd share my favorite thing to make for parties!

What You'll Need:

Toll House Cookie Dough (you could make your own cookie dough, but I'm lazy and did not this time)
Mini Marshmellows
Graham Crackers
Mini Hershey Chocolate Bars

Preheat oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit.
Place Graham Cracker squares on a foiled cookie sheet.
Put 1-2 Marshmallows inside your cookie dough ball.
Place cookie dough on graham crackers.
Place in oven for 10-11 minutes.
Take out of oven and place a Mini Hershey bar on top.
Place back in oven for an additional 1-2 minutes (until your piece of chocolate on the top has melted a little bit)
Take out of the oven, let cool (or not, if you are like me and can't wait to try one) and Enjoy!!

This took me only about 20 minutes from start to finish (probably because I didn't make any of my ingredients haha!) My point is that everyone loves this dessert and its quick and easy.

xoxo, Maddie
