It’s no secret that I absolutely love wine! With Winc it’s almost too easy to get my favorite wines delivered.

Winc is a subscription wine service that allows you to go online and pick out wine online and have it sent directly to your house. There’s even an quiz that helps determine which wines you’ll like the most. You can pick and choose wines that look appealing or that you’d like to try. I’ve received a few boxes, but this box has by far been my favorite. Here’s what I got:


2017 Matchlock Cabernet Sauvignon -
This might be my favorite bottle that I have received. The cab is full body and has a dry aftertaste, which I love. I wil for sure order this one again It pairs great with burgers or pastas.

2018 Più Gioia Pinot Grigio - I haven’t opened up this bottle yet, but I have heard great things. I love a good white wine in the summer time. Plus this pairs well with sushi, salads and veggies, my favs!

2017 Summer Water Rosé - This is one of my favorite Rosé’s and I don’t say that lightly. I love a good dry Rosé, plus the bottle is so cute! This is a great bottle to bring to a pool party or the beach.

2018 Keep It Chill Chillable Red - if you follow me on instagram you saw I just opened up this bottle last night. Kiana and I loved it! It was kinda weird drinking a chilled red wine, but this wine is encouraged to be chilled. Since it is served chilled this would be great for a summer bbq or pool party!

The 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

It's my favorite time of year, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I wanted to share with you the the down low before early access opens up to cardholders this week, read below for all you need to know.

Alright, let's get down to it. Let's chat #NSale basics:‍

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

The Anniversary Sale is the biggest and best Nordstrom Sale that happens every summer. This sale is unlike the Half Yearly sale because rather than clearing out old merchandise, the Anniversary Sale offers the newest fall merchandise at the lowest prices. This sale includes designer items too!

When is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

Early Access for the sale starts July 12th.

The sale opens up to the public on July 19th.

The sale ends August 4th.

What is Early Access and how can I get it?

Early Access is like being a VIP. Nordstrom Cardholders gain entry to the sale, in-store and online, 7 days early. THIS IS GAME CHANGING, I swear, last year when the sale opened up to the public everything I wanted was already sold out. If you don't already have a Nordstrom Card, you should definitely get one before Thursday. Plus there is no annual fee and you get $60 in bonus notes to use right away after signing up.

You can apply here for a Nordstrom Card.

What will be on sale? 

All the new Fall 2019 Merchandise, including designer pieces that are on super duper sale. Beauty items, accessories, shoes etc. Here is a catalog that was released showing a sneak peak of what is going to be offered.

I will be sharing all my favorite pieces with you guys on the blog and on my instagram.

Hope you're just as excited as I am. It's like Christmas in July :D

Instagram Roundup

I am finally committing to posting a minimum of 2 times per week on the blog, so get ready for ALL THE CONTENT. I have been trying to plan and organize the perfect instagram, the perfect blog posts and perfect content BUT you know what, I’m saying SCREW IT and posting what and when I want, with whatever filter, caption etc. I notice the posts and photos I post that aren’t planned always do the best, probably because they are raw and in the moment. SO with that being said, I have received some DMs about things I have been wearing in my recent IG posts and I wanted to post everything here in one place for you to browse and shop.

I linked everything in my last few posts, and some similar items for the links I couldn’t find/sold out. The easiest way to shop my posts are on LIKEtoKNOWit or the “SHOP” tab on the top of my blog. This will take you to the direct links and you can shop straight from there. If something isn’t linked I would be more than happy to send you think link via DM or email :)

I seriously wear this crop top every other day, and I sized up and got a medium for a more oversized look.

I got a few question on this jumpsuit as well as the cowboy boots - I think mainly because of stagecoach BUT exact pieces are linked below. Boots are TTS as well as the jumpsuit - I am wearing a small.

One of the most bought items from my instagram are these Ray Ban sunnies, these are the hexagonal shape and they are my ride or dies, I lost a pair and immediately had to go buy another STAT.

I always get so many questions about this denim jacket, I two years ago during the Nordstrom anniversary sale it was sold out for a while but I linked the exact one below, the very first one is the exact denim jacket. I also linked a few of my other favorites.

I also had a few question on what barrel I used to curl my hair here. For this hair style I used the 1'“ clip barrel and did a super fast curl so it would look more like waves rather than a curl. T3 Micro Discount Code: EMILYT315 for 15% off your entire purchase on www.t3micro.com

This is one of the skirts I wore during Coachella, but I brought it back for a fun beauty brunch. Everything is linked exact below except for the turtleneck - I got the one I’m wearing from Topshop last year and they are out of stock so I linked a super similar one below.

Let me know if this is helpful for you guys and I will continue to post more!

The Lowdown on Blogger Events

I’m sure you can already guess what this post is about from the title, so here is my take on what really goes down at all the blogger events I attend. Surprisingly, this was a highly requested post. Possibly because these events come off as a super exclusive and you only see the pretty instagrammable photos that are posted as a result… but really goes on…?

Magical NYC

I titled this blog post “Magical NYC” because I’ve never been to a more magical place, besides maybe Disneyland. The streets are lit up, the vibe is unmatched and every corner is like a scene straight out of Elf. I have always wanted to go to New York during the holidays and I finally had the chance. I managed to knock out everything on my “NYC Christmas List.” I’ll take you throughout my entire trip in this post.

Day 1 of Blogmas: Holiday Gift Guides

For those of you who are new here this year, Blogmas takes place every December and I post every day leading up to Christmas. It only seemed appropriate to kick things off with my holiday gift guide. This year I created a shoppable catalogue, just browse through the pages and click on the item to instantly shop. Easy, breezy! Happy Shopping!
