I've had the chance to tour several wineries in Virginia the past semester and I've seen the best of the best. Virginia and its mountainous views are truly breathtaking. I was able to go with some friends and enjoy the experience!
Cheers to a fun filled semester! Looking forward to what the summer has to bring.
Spring break this year consisted of a lot of sun & relaxation. We took our trip to West Palm Beach and had the best time. Here are some memorable photos from the time there ~
The best trip. The best time. Looking forward for more adventures like these soon!
hey everyone! it's been a little while so i wanted to update you on a pretty exciting moment that just happened yesterday -- i cut my hair!! if you've been around me recently you've probably heard me complaining about how my hair is too long and has been feeling gross and how i've wanted to change it up. i ended up coming home for the weekend last minute and booked an appointment at my salon back home in new jersey to switch up my look. if you can't picture it, my hair was LONG. heres two pics just from last week of what my hair was looking like.
it's been a little while since i cut it, so i wanted to give my hair a new look and a healthy cut. and below you can see the results!!
there's a difference in length yet definitely still long, but now healthy and full of volume! super excited about this change up, especially because it's right in time for spring break!
Earlier in the semester, my friend Ashlyn and I did a fun shoot with my new friend Brandon. These photos turned out amazing and I was able to showcase my two different senses of style - trendy & unique from head to toe, and comfy casual - basically what I'm probably wearing around my home or going to class. These photos turned out absolutely AMAZING, and I hope you enjoy them too!

In this post, I'm excited to show you guys the pieces I received from Femme Luxe that are perfect for any occasion - the gym, comfy casual, going out, and a going to class or work/every day OOTD. Their Women's dresses are some of my favorite pieces. I'm obsessing over these pieces and I hope you will love them as much as I do!.
Athleisure has to be my favorite trend right now. Whether going to the gym, going to class, or just to be comfy while running errands - I'm a huge fan of this look. The Camel Crop Jumper Loungewear set (shown in the first photo) is super comfortable. As shown in the second photo, this black loungewear set is another favorite. With the white stripe detailing, it makes a very sporty look that can be worn to show style but also comfort. In the third photo, I paired both sets together to show that they could be worn together to create a whole new look!
I am OBSESSED with this jumpsuit - it's the perfect look for a night out! Pair it with some heels or booties and you're set! It's super comfortable too which is a plus!
This mustard bodycon dress by Femme Luxe is the perfect look for work/class or an everyday OOTD to grab lunch with your girlfriends! I love the color since it's great for any season. I paired it with a pair of over the knee boots since it's still pretty chilly out.
Hope you all enjoyed these looks - and make sure to check out Femme Luxe and all of their super trendy products!
Before I left for winter break, I was able to do a shoot with my friend Isaac - check out his work here! It had just snowed, so we were able to take some snowy pics outside as well as some in my apartment for a homey feel. Check out some of the shots from this shoot below!

With the holidays coming up very quickly, it's now time to hop on sending out cards to your dearest family and friends. Over at Basic Invite, you can create holiday cards of all kinds to send to everyone! I love design and color, and couldn't be more satisfied with the cards I designed and received. It's great for sending out custom holiday cards for business. Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews on line. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. It definitely sets them apart from any other online stationary company I've ever used!
Basic Invite is also one of the few websites that actually allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual card/invitation so they can see exactly how it will print and look, as well as feel the paper quality before you place your final order. This definitely guarantees satisfaction all around!
Their watercolor holiday cards are beautiful in design and follow this same step! You can create and try one out to see if you like it before you place your order for the holidays.
As I stated before, I love design so the fact that Basic Invite has so many options to get creative is something I'm a big fan of. They have so many options - like 40 different colors of envelopes, foil holiday cards in gold, silver, and rose gold, and over 500 holiday card designs are available now to pick from and order! I love their picture Christmas cards, and here are the cards I created and received ~

With the semester flying by and being the fastest one yet, I can't believe I haven't been able to sit down and write a post since August....the SUMMER. This post is just a little update of what I've been up to. It's been a crazy busy semester taking 18 credits, working two jobs, homework, and trying to maintain somewhat of a social life.
I was fortunate this semester to get a job as a social media manager with a local boutique that I have absolutely been loving. It's been a lot of fun taking charge and changing things around to help improve the store's business all in all. Assisting and styling photoshoots, creating content for all social media platforms, and responding to comments and questions is just a little glimpse in what I am doing on a day to day basis.
I also am working with intramural sports as a scorekeeper and have had the best time working this job. It's been a super easy way to meet so many new people as well as build relationships with the people that I work with who are probably some of the funniest people I know.
Of course, I've also had some time to take some trips this semester, which have kind of been all over the place - like to Raleigh, DC, Orlando, NYC, etc. Traveling is almost a stress reliever for me so whenever I need a little getaway from school and reality, a weekend trip always sounds like a good idea.
As the holidays are right around the corner I'm happy to be home for Thanksgiving spending time with my family and friends in New Jersey, and then finish off the last two weeks of the semester strong - with finishing up finals and who knows what else will come my way!
I look forward to keeping up with blog more as things slow down and I'm back home for winter break to continue with what I do best - fashion, travel, and lifestyle. I wish you all the best and hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
I had the opportunity to do a collaboration with American Threads while I was visiting Orlando a couple weeks ago. I got to shoot around the coolest locations with my super talented friend and photographer Laur Fernandez. Check out the amazing job she did below ~

My name is Gabrielle. I go to Liberty University and I am currently studying strategic communications with a focus on social media management.

Enjoy! ♡
