A Morning at Clothes Mentor Wexford

All college girls love a great deal. Free pizza? I’m in. Even if it means attending a meeting for a club that I’m hardly a part of. I was beyond excited when Andrea from Clothes Mentor Wexford invited me to visit her store and shop around. Mention the words “J.Crew” and “Kate Spade” and “discounted” in the same sentence and I’ll try and be there as soon as I can. Clothes Mentor focuses on buying gently used better brand-name fashions and accessories, and their selection is fantastic. Some of my favorite finds were pieces from… View Post

All of the products mentioned today have worked their way into my heart (and makeup bag) and will definitely be purchased again.

Brunching in the Blizzard

Much to everyone’s chagrin, Western Pennsylvania was hit with 1-3 feet of snow this weekend, leaving most of my fellow college students snowed in on campus. Don’t get me wrong: I love binge watching Netflix as much as the next girl, especially when curled up in pjs with a cup of tea, but my go-getter side prevents me from doing such for an entire weekend. I’ve been planning a brunch date with my best friend Annie’s 21st birthday for what seems like months. We went to my absolute favorite spot for breakfast and dinner- the… View Post

Christmas Playlist

Christmas time is finally here! (a.k.a. my favorite time of the year). Scientists here at Pittsburgh & Pearls have allegedly compiled the perfect playlist for decking your dorm room, the halls; or just helping you get in the mood to put on your ugly sweater and chug some egg nog! And as Buddy the Elf said…  I’ll be updating the playlist throughout the season, so don’t forget to follow along on Spotify if you have an account! (and if not, I highly suggest getting one!) Happy Listening!
