The BEST eats at PDQ

Ok so this post is SUPER late but it's a fun one so I wanted to share it with y'all! A couple weeks ago I got an email inviting me to a pre-opening event at the new PDQ in Jax. I was thrilled because this was the first "blogger" event I have been invited to and because I LOVE PDQ. We got to try SO much food and it was all delicious.


My favorite thing we tried was the pimento crunch sandwich. The sandwich is full of bacon, potato chips, and pimento cheese. It was heavenly!



We got to try classics like chicken tenders, fries, all of their homemade sauces and tons of new items that are only available at specific locations like this one in the St. Johns Town Center.

Some of the new items include:

Pimento Crunch (seasonal)

Grilled Hawaiian Chicken (seasonal)

Southern Buffalo Bowl (seasonal)

Kale Caesar Salad

My favorite meal here is their buffalo tender sandwich with zucchini fries! 





If you have never been to PDQ I highly recommend it! Their food is so delicious, their service is great AND they always have corn hole on their porch.

The Cutest Online Boutiques

I love big name stores like Nordstrom and H&M but sometimes I find my cutest pieces of clothing at online boutiques! For example if I ever need a dress for an event a boutique is the first place I look. The thing I love most about boutiques is they usually have a smaller inventory so there isn't so much to search through; shopping at Nordstrom can sometimes be so overwhelming! Below I'll link some of my favorite boutiques, they are starting to release Fall items and I am so excited!!!


Go check out their fall preview, omg! I am loving everything!

This boutique is less my style but I still always find cute pieces of clothing! This boutique is perfect to find a dress for a formal event. The blouse I'm wearing below I purchased from LuLu's at the start of Summer.

I've been shopping here for years! They always have cute items and I love to shop at their sister store, Marley Lilly.

A boutique owned by my two favorite Youtubers!

Every Day Makeup Routine

I've been wanting to do a post about my makeup routine for a while now and I'm so glad I finally got around to it! I'm going to walk you through the steps I take and review some of the products for you! All of the products I use will be linked throughout the post and at the end. 

But first music, always start with music!


So first I start with this Maybelline primer. It's ok but I don't love it, mostly because it is not what I expected. I read it was a dupe for Benefit's porefessional primer and it is far from it! The maybelline works well but is more like the Smashbox primer. 


I go back and forth with foundations but right now I am loving CoverGirl Elixir. It is so full coverage but light weight and it smells so good! Unfortunately the lightest shade is still too dark for me but I use my concealer in a much lighter shade so it helps to even it out. 


I love love Tarte's shape tape concealer. I use a good amount under my eyes to make them brighter and to help with the foundation being a little too dark.



Once I have my base I set it with this powder, I love it!!! I then go in to "contour" and add blush and highlight. I love Hoola to add definition to my cheeks. I use the brush that come with Hoola to apply it and the brush pictured below to blend it out. 




I love this blush palette below from Makeup Revolution. I have been using the peach color lately. This palette was $10 and is worth every penny. The highlight below is Stila Heavens Hue in Kitten. It is the best I have ever used. It is always still on my face by the end of the day.




Next I do eyebrows with these two products here and here, both affordable and work very well. I also added some eye shadow. For this look I used Limelight shadow. For my everyday look I just use a cream colored shadow on the lid and a brown for the crease.


Below you can see my eyeshadow and the difference the two products makes in my brows.


Below is my favorite mascara combo right now. I use the white end of Double Extend as a primer then go in with the Carbon Black. The red and white tube is a good mascara on its own but I am not a fan of the other when I use it alone. This is my all time favorite mascara. 


These are just a couple brushes I use. The fluffy white for powder, fluffy black for blush, and the pink for eyeshadow.


Thanks for stopping by and reading! What are some of your favorite makeup products? I love trying new things so let me know!

Staple Summer Tank for $11





These tanks from Old Navy have been my FAVORITE piece of clothing this summer! I have them in three colors and they're perfect to dress up or down and they're so soft! Also they are currently on sale for just $11!

These jeans are a little too big but I love the frayed ends. Jeans with frayed ends have been trending throughout summer and will stick around during fall. I have my eyes on these! 😍 Hoping they restock during the sale!

So a couple of things:

Don't forget the Nordstrom Anniversary sale starts this Friday! I have been working overtime just for this and I am so excited to add some fall pieces to my closet! If you're thinking of shopping the Nsale and curious about sizes let me know and I'll be happy to help! I'll link a couple of my favorites from the sale below

Also have my Disney fans checked out this years Epcot Food and Wine Festival details?! This is our first year going and it looks like SO much fun, I can't wait! You can start booking some events now if you are an annual passholder/DVC memeber, buttt the website hasn't been working for me! I can't wait to share everything that we do with you guys! Also, if you have been before leave me a comment below and let me know some of the must dos!

The Best Sale of the Year! $$$ off of Designer Brands

Today was the start of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale aka the biggest fashion sale of the year. Every blogger is talking about it so I wasn't sure if I wanted to post about it but I decided to share my picks with you guys because many of my family/friends don't even know that this sale exists.


The Nsale is a great opportunity to stock up on staple items or score an expensive item that you have had your eye on for a while. A lot of the items are geared toward Fall but many of the items you can start wearing right away! 

For Nordstrom card holders the sale started today and for everyone else it starts next Friday, BUT you can still see all the items that are on sale. During the sale items tend to sell out fast so if you really want to score some of the deals it's best to have a game plan and know what you want to order. 

Below are a lot of the more affordable items from the sale. If you guys would like to see some of the Designer deals I'll be happy to share those too! Beauty, home, and kid items are also on sale!

Items will sell out fast and last year I had to stalk a couple of the items I wanted so I could get them when they were restocked so below with the link to each item I'll tell you guys if it will go fast! 

 

       
This item will definitely go but if you see it sold out I wouldn't lose all hope. Popular items like this are usually restocked! 

This item is going so fast! I'm not surprise since it is only $12!!!

This shirt will go fast because it is an essential that is only $18! It will more than likely be restocked throughout the sale.

So cute and a good investment piece. Last year I didn't have my eye on a piece like this so I'm not sure about restocks.

Another item that will sell fast but should be restocked throughout the sale.

These jeans are completely in trend and have already sold out in some sizes. Even mine. Praying for a restock!!!

I love this because it's so different from the classic leopard scarf above. I'm praying it doesn't sell out before I get my hands on it!

A simple sweater with a few extra details. This is one of the more pricey items that I picked. 

This dress is already selling out. It will be restocked but the restocks will go FAST!

Another closet staple that will go fast but should be restocked.

These jeans are only $38 you can bet they will sell out and any restocks will go fast!

Last year I didn't even look at purses and only looked at one pair of shoes! I'm sure if they sellout they will be restocked so keep checking!

The Nsale gets me so excited for Fall and Fall is where I thrive when it comes to fashion! I can't wait to get some of these items and share outfits with y'all!

Eating Around EPCOT

Every time I walk into EPCOT I fall more and more in love. I love Soarin', I love Test Track, and I especially LOVE walking around the different countries. Austin and I each have our favorite park but this is our favorite to go to together, we both love it! I made a little video of out trip to Animal Kingdom (here) so today I'll show you around EPCOT with pictures of everything we ate. Sadly the Flower and Garden Festival ended today, but there is always next year to try these yummy treats!




 I got a lot of love from you guys over this romper! You can shop it here and I have linked a few below too! My sandals are linked below too and they are SO comfortable. I wore them for 2 non-stop days at Disney and my feet did not hurt at all!







We really enjoyed this year's Flower and Garden Festival. The food was delish, my favorite was the shrimp and grits from Florida Fresh, they aren't pictured here! Now we're looking forward to the Food and Wine Festival in October!
