    Recently, I made a huge adult purchase a.k.a I bought a car!  I purchased the INFINITI QX30 from INFINITI of Central Arkansas, and I am seriously in love with it.   Honestly, at first I had no idea what I was doing.  I had to do a lot of research before I took the plunge.  At 24, the biggest purchase I ever made was an expensive handbag, so I was very intimidated. Luckily, Everett was SO easy to work with and made the process painless.  I’m teaming up with Everett’s luxury dealership INFINITI of Central Arkansas to share 7 helpful tips for buying your first car in your 20’s!

    FOURTH OF JULY OUTFITS THAT YOU WILL ACTUALLY WEAR AGAIN

      Am I the only one that struggles buying Fourth of July themed outfits?  Don’t get me wrong, I love busting out my best stars and stripes to celebrate, but once the 4th passes, I never wear that outfit again.  This year, I am doing it differently!  Instead of buying a one and done kind of outfit, I went with an outfit that I know I will wear again. I love how easy this tie top is!  It is so cute with a causal pair of denim shorts (hello 4th of July outfit), but I can also dress it up a little with white jeans!  I love that this top…
