Let us snack: Graze

Let us snack: Graze

If you are a student, person on the go, or just an all around snack lover like myself, Graze is about to become your new best friend.

Living a healthy lifestyle is so incredibly important to me and keeping up with it while going from class to class tends to be a struggle that I’ve been working to fix. Not to mention, snacking can become quite dangerous if you’re not reaching for the right ones. 

Not only are these snacks portion controlled so you can’t over indulge like most of us do on a roll of Oreos, but the options are endless. When I say endless I mean over 100 snacks to choose from aka regardless if you have a sweet tooth or a salty tooth, you’re set. 

I was sent a box of amazing snacks from Graze to try, and spent this week doing just that! Let’s take a look:)






1. Kettle Corn Kern Pops 2. Protein Cashew Kick 3. Zesty Lime & Red Pepper Salsa with Pita Chips 4. Cocoa & Vanilla Protein Flapjack



5. Hazelnut, peanut, cranberry & raisin mix 6. Strawberries and Cream Granola Topper 7. Pumpkin & Sunflower Soy Roasted Seeds 8.Almond, Carrot & Apple mix


HOW good do these snacks look!? Like I said, this last week I spent time trying out these snacks for myself. So here are some of my favorites ↓

Cocoa & Vanilla Flapjack– SO good. The perfect pre workout snack and reminded me of cocoa krispies from my childhood days *sigh*

Protein Cashew Kick- If you like yourself a nice trail mix, you will definitely enjoy this one. The dried chickpeas were my favorite part not to mention it has got quite a kick to it if you like spicy food!

Kettle Corn Kern Pop– Need I say more?

Strawberries & Cream Protein Granola Topper- Great for on top of some yogurt, or by itself as a snack!


Those were just a few of my favorites out of this Graze box. Who doesn’t love snacking? Be sure to check out Graze and try out a box of your own!!

It has been way too long since I’ve talked about my current favorites. So what better day than today!? I feel like I’ve dabbled quite a bit with some cool items and have accumulated a few new favs from fashion, to beauty to music that I would love to share! (Warning: these are incredibly random). 

Sidenote: You know it’s been a successful month when you discover a new podcast (In the Dark) and finally pick up a book after way too much time using Netflix as a time passer (this is what happens when you break the sound on your computer and have no other choice). 

On to the favorites ♥♥

Fringe Fever

Fringe Fever

Somehow almost a month ago I turned 21. What? How and why is time moving so quickly?! My birthday was nothing shy of amazing, however adjusting to the lifestyle of a 21 year old is definitely something my body has to work on. 

On this day that is August 18th, I also received the most amazing gift. It’s simply beautiful, breathtaking, amazing, perfectly cognac, and my new child. Yes, I am referring to a pocketbook.





I cannot BEGIN to explain the emotions that came over me when I opened this gift. It is THE most perfect pocketbook that I have ever laid my eyes on, and took me 3 weeks to build up the courage to take out of the box and into the real world. (No, I am not stable).Everything about this Saint Laurent bag screams classic, everlasting, and transitional.

One of the biggest trends that has been lingering for years now, and will remain for many more years to come, is fringe. I absolutely love the look of fringe and was so excited to see the fringe detail on either side of the bag. I decided to take it for a walk on the streets and take some pictures and I have to say, it looks just as beautiful behind a camera. 









One of my favorite parts of this bag is the fact it came with a crossbody strap. I LIVE for a crossbody bag and not having to carry the weight on my arm is something I am always on the hunt for. 

If you are in the market for a new bag, I highly recommend experimenting with fringe. It’s fun and adds some flare while still remaining sophisticated and simple. It’s the perfect enhancement on a bag without being too in your face. 

I found some amazing fringe bags that incorporate the fringe look for those gals out there looking for a new fall pocketbook. Take a look!

1. Free People Night Out Crossbody




2. Ecote Fringe Bucket Bag



3. Nasty Gal Leather Fringe Bag



4. Dixie Fringe Suede Fringe Crossbody Bag *(On sale, and featured in one of my latest blog posts! Love this bag, amazing quality)*



I love all of these bags not to mention their neutral colors that can go with any outfit you put on. Give them a look:)

TREND ALERT: Chokers!?

TREND ALERT: Chokers!?

I think we can all agree that if anything has come back in style.. its chokers. THEY ARE EVERYWHERE and I love them. I’ve been finding that if my outfit is lacking in something, I can throw on a choker and it tops it off perfectly. 

Being that they are literally everywhere, it has become quite easy to find a million different styles that can accommodate any look. My collection has been growing slowly but surely and as it does I have been working to incorporate different versions of the classic choker look. 

Fortunately for fast fashion and our wallets, finding affordable chokers is so easy to do right now. You can go to Nordstrom and spend a pretty penny, or you can go the inexpensive route and buy a plethora. Which c’mon… who wouldn’t. 

I have gathered a list of my top 5 favorite chokers. Although I couldn’t find my exact ones, I have found similar and affordable versions that do the trick. In doing so, I may or may not have blacked out and purchased a few more. The world may never know. 

1. Classic Velour Choker  – A classic simple choker can take you a very very long way my friend. There are so many colors to chose from which is so fun, and they are so simple and easy to throw on with a busy outfit. Not to mention this one is under 5 dollars? Whattttt.


2. Self Tie Velvet Choker – I’ve been seeing these everywhere, and love the way they look. It almost reminds me of a blouse that ties in the front. There is something so simple about this choker but it still adds a statement. Throw on a vneck tee with some ripped up jeans and you’ve got yourself a look girl. 


3. Dainty Gold Choker  I LOVE layering necklaces, and there is nothing better than dainty chokers. I have quite a few of these and I am always layering them on top of one another. This one in particular is so dang cute and would be perfect layered with some other simple gold chains.


4. Wide Jersey Choker– I just added the cutest red velour thick choker to my collection (thank you Tali) and I have worn it non stop. It definitely finishes off a look and creates a statement which is why I love it. I threw it on last night with a simple black tank and jeans and was the perfect accessory!


5. Rhinestone ChokerIn addition to the dainty gold pieces, I love chokers with dangling charms. It adds a little spiciness to your look without much effort. Also- quick shout out to the fact that it is under 4 dollars.

If you are questioning whether or not you should venture out and purchase a choker, I highly recommend it. I know they aren’t everyone’s taste, but for a few dollars you might as well try it out and see how you like it. In the meantime, thank you for reading & more posts to come so stay tuned folks.
