Travel Guide - The Stripe
  • #ad Isn’t it funny how fragrance can instantly bring back certain memories? When I use @NiveaUSA’s new Care & Cucumber Body Wash I am instantly transported back to Spring on Cape Cod, specifically my high school glory days of running track! I had a cucumber melon body splash that was my absolute favorite. I took it everywhere with me as I loved the fragrance so much. The fresh cucumber and sweet cantaloupe melon make me think of those days - the fragrance is a more elevated version of that body splash! I’ll always love this fragrance combination… the cucumber is fresh and clean while the cantaloupe melon adds just the right touch of sweetness! It’s perfectly uplifting and always puts me in a great mood - with a side of nostalgia, of course. Get it at CVS or Amazon - link in bio! #showerwithcare
  • when you find that rare and exotic green wall it’s important to stop the conversation, trespass, and make your friend capture that crucial #ootd moment. It’s fashion. 💁🏼‍♀️ #trespassing #bloggersbehavingbadly #priorities (📸: @adick206)
  • If you are an influencer or work in social media for a brand, I always say that one of the best things you can do for your business and staying current is to listen to @jamesnord's "Drink with James" videos via @fohr.co. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
James is brilliant and funny and has the best taste (don’t let that go to your head James! 😘) so that’s reason alone to listen, but his videos are packed with great information, actionable tips and tricks, and ways to stay on top of what's going on in this ever-changing space. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
SO as his number one fan I was VERY excited when James invited me on the show last week to talk about my experiences in this weird and wacky world! We had some drinks (whiskey for him, tequila for me) and talked about literally EVERYTHING. Starting my blog, quitting my day job, what I miss about office life, the struggles of self-employment, all the mistakes I've made with Instagram (so many!!!), starting the podcast, beating yourself up over numbers, and so much more.

  • Sunday mood. Tag a friend who loves to read and lives in Chicago, DC, Boston, Charleston, or Nashville to let them know that tickets are still available to all of our @badonpaperpodcast live shows! ✨💁🏼‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️(Chicago is almost sold out - get yours while they’re still available via the link in my bio.) So so so excited to see you there for a fun night of friendship, books talk, highs & lows, obsessions, and more! Oh and wine. 🍷🍷🍷 There will be lots of that,  too! We don’t record our live shows as we want them to be special for those who buy tickets (and that way we can be “off the record,” meaning extra honest and weird!!) 📸: @carterfish
  • getting serious Talented Mr. Ripley (my forever summer style inspiration) vibes in this easy @SplendidLA x @graymalin set! Linen and rainbow stripes... it's all I want to wear! #SplendidPartner (📸: @carterfish)
  • What’s your power color?! It’s different from your favorite color! Emerald green is my favorite color, but when I want to feel my best I put on my power color, RED! Today on TheStripe.com I shared my favorite red dresses including this one (which I copied @cygmakeup on!!) but tell me what color makes YOU feel your best!!!! ❤️ (📸: @carterfish)
  • my skincare + my bed: my two greatest loves. ❤️✨(Not even joking about that.) Today on TheStripe.com with @sephora, I am sharing 6 of my favorite products (including one new holy grail that I can't live without) and a routine that I will do when I want to wake up looking like a glowy goddess (isn't that always the goal?)
