Over the last year, I've developed a deep, deep love and obsession for TJ Maxx and all the magical things you can find there. It started with a trip to one when I was home last summer for Beach Week. I popped into the local TJ Maxx to look for some flip flops because mine had broken the second day we had arrived at the ocean. As I wandered towards the shoes, I got distracted by the beauty aisle where a familiar logo caught my eye - Anastasia Beverly Hills. I took a sharp right to go investigate and before I knew it, I was sitting on the ground, sifting through the beauty bins. I couldn't believe it - SO many brands that I spent big dollars on in Ulta and Sephora were . . .
I wasn't going to do a post on this Stitch Fix box, but a few of you spied it on my stories last week and wanted to see what was inside, so I whipped out my camera and decided to do a quick unboxing and try-on! This clearly is my best hair day ever (not) but hey - growing out bangs is a hard thing to do, you know? If you have never heard of Stitch Fix before, here's how it works: StitchFix is a clothing subscription service, where you have a personal stylist that sends you 5 items of clothing and accessories to try on in the comfort of your own home. You pay a $20 dollar styling fee and can write a note with any special requests for specific clothing you may be . . .

Here are 3 Affordable and Trendy outfit ideas for your Thanksgiving Holiday! So. It's Thanksgiving next week. Anyone else flipping out a little bit? Like HOW is it THANKSGIVING?! I feel like I've been so preoccupied with all the big life changes I've made recently that I've barely had time to focus on anything past Tuesday, so I feel a little surprised (and shell-shocked) that turkey time is literally just over a week away. That being said, I'm FULL ON READY for Thanksgiving weekend (AKA, the best weekend of the year, since . . .
Affiliate links used. Thanks for supporting Hey There, Chelsie | A Utah Lifestyle Blog I listened to a Christmas song on the way to work today and I am not sorry about it. Not one bit. Monday kicked off the BEST time of the year and from here on out, my life will be filled with Marshmallow Fireside candles, Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Lattes and Christmas music. I'm a firm believer in enjoying every second I can during this time of year and you won't ever find me shaming someone else for being "basic" because Pumpkin Spice and Blanket Scarves make them happy. Yeah, I went there. ANYWAY. At the beginning of the week, my friend Karli (from everyday_ellis) encouraged . . .
Maybe it's because fall clothes are the best clothes or because it's easier to say yes to comfy and cozy pieces, but every year when my Fall Stitch Fix comes, it's always the best of the year. Last year was no exception and if funds had been available to me, I would have purchased every single piece. This year's fall Fix JUST as amazing and my stylist hit the ball out of the park. This was the best fix I've received all year (and I've been receiving them every 2-3 weeks because I'm on an unlimited fix plan.) All of the pieces were flattering, my style, and perfect to wear as the seasons' transition. Before we jump into the unboxing and try-on, here's a brief . . .
THE COUNTDOWN IS ON! Dustin and I will be on a plane before we know it, flying across the country and back to my beloved New England to spend a week at our grandparent's beach cottage and I. cannot. wait. It's been a really crazy summer for us, in mostly good ways, but also in a few stressful ways. This trip is exactly what we need to remove ourselves from our lives for a little bit and reset for fall. But, of course, before we get there, I have to pack for a beach vacation first. *Sigh* Packing is not my favorite thing. Ever since my junior year of high school, we've spent a full week at my grandparent's beach cottage, a few miles away from the Hampton boardwalk . . .
*affiliate links Thewhat I bought in a post yesterday is in FULL swing, and yes, I have already spent way more then I should have. What can I say? I was very excited to what I bought in a post yesterday and splurging on the Barefoot Dreams Cardigan was one of the best choices I've ever made. No, I won't blow up the blog or Instagram TOO much with #nsale picks, but I shared what I bought in a post yesterday that you can check out here, and I'll be doing a try-on post once all my orders come in for those who are interested in shopping it. If you want to keep the tabs on that, make sure you check in on my Nordstrom Sale page, where I'll be updating everything during . . .
*affiliate links Yes, I was up at 1 AM last night shopping the Nordstrom Sale. And yes, I get it - hearing about the Nordstrom Sale is probably already annoying the majority of you. Totally understandable. I asked everyone over on Instagram a few weeks ago if they were shopping the Nordstrom sale and if they wanted content centered around that. It was split pretty 50/50, so I decided I would do a post on what I actually ordered from the sale and what I end up keeping (because I definitely won't be keeping it all.) I know that the blogging scene gets a little overwhelming during the Nordstrom Sale and I also know that Nordstrom prices may be a little bit of . . .
Friends. It was 102 degrees today in Utah. We don't have air conditioning (except a small window unit in our room, thank goodness.) It's HOT. SUMMER IS HERE! And while I'm super stoked about all the summer things we've got planned this year, like a trip back East for Beach Week and a day at a water park here in Utah, I'm already over the heat. I'm a fall girl - give me all the cozy leggings and sweaters and jackets and scarves. BUT! I'm trying really hard to not rush through the present and enjoy time as it is right now, instead of complaining and waiting around for the summer heat to end. No sense in waiting for cooler temps to live a vibrant life, right? As . . .
