Happy Holidays!

I am so excited the holiday season is finally here! The time from Thanksgiving to New Years is my favorite time of the year. Especially this year! Spending quality time with my family has taken on a new level of importance now that I'm away at college. 


Every Thanksgiving, my family travels to Florida to spend a couple days together soaking up the sun. Last year we stayed at The Ritz-Carlton in Key Biscayne, Miami (see post here). This year we decided to change things up and stay at the Embassy Suites at Deerfield Beach

The weather was absolutely INCREDIBLE! We could not have asked for a better week. We had one rainy day, but other than that it was in the upper 70s and sunny! 


The resemblance is uncanny, right?! My brother is really working it. 

My baby sister is growing up too fast! 

If you're staying in the Deerfield Beach area, definitely be sure to check out Oceans 234! The restaurant is beachfront so don't pass up on the opportunity to sit outside. 

On our way back from Florida, we stopped at the Christmas tree farm where my parents got their first ever tree together. We found the perfect tree, and drove it an hour home! Thankfully the tree made it safe and sound. 

Happy Holidays!!

College Update: October

I can't believe it's already November! I'm sorry I've been MIA these past couple weeks. It's been a crazy month in terms of school work and events! The workload kicked into high gear the second I returned from fall break. If you want to stay up to date on my crazy life, be sure to follow me on Instagram (@whattheclique). 

Martha's Market 

A couple weekend ago, I got the opportunity to help out the amazing Tricia Humphreys at Martha's Market. If you remember from previous posts (see hereTricia Humphreys is the talented designer and owner of GotRocks Jewelry Design. Proceeds of this event benefitted Martha Jefferson hospital.

Victoria's Secret Pink Campus Party 

If you are a member of PINK Nation, you might know that Virginia Tech was this years Campus Showdown winner! This meant a private concert from Diplo and party for only VT students.  

Skinland Farms Pumpkin Patch 

I joined Collegiate Women in Business on an adventure to the pumpkin patch at Sinkland Farms. I don't know if you can tell from the pictures, but oh my heavens it was cold! It was about 45 degrees with the wind blowing 20 miles per hour. I was completely numb after about 15 minutes outside, but we definitely tried to make the most of the cold!

I hope you guys had a good October!

My Clarisonic

I'm beyond excited to be working with Clarisonic today on the blog! I've always wanted to try a Clarisonic cleansing device, but as someone with extremely sensitive skin I was hesitant. However, after a week of testing, I am so glad I didn't allow my hesitations to get the best of me! It only takes 60 seconds to see more radiant skin.

"Beautiful art begins with a perfectly clean canvas" -Clarisonic Facebook 

I tested out the Clarisonic Deep Pore Mia 2 set for seven days, and can honestly say it's a skin game changer. I used it twice-a-day and never experienced discomfort with my sensitive skin! I used the Mia 2 and Deep Pore Daily Cleanser in the morning to wash my face, and then again at night to remove my makeup. 

The deep pore set includes everything you need for clear skin: Deep Pore Daily Cleanser, Deep Pore Detoxifying Clay Mask, and a Deep Pore Brush Head. All perfect for removing impurities and excess oils. The brush also includes two speeds (delicate and universal) that cleanse 6x better than hands alone. I use the delicate setting on my forehead, chin, and cheeks and universal on my nose to get rid of those pesky blackheads.

The Mia 2 with travel case

Since I began college, my everyday routine has changed drastically. I didn't think it was possible to be so busy! There are not enough hours in the day.

This was the perfect time in my life to be introduced to the Clarisonic Mia 2. No matter how exhausted I am, I only have to follow a few short and easy steps before climbing into bed with clean skin.

I won't bore you with the medical details, but my skin has always been out of my control. I can try and tame breakouts, but it's more or less just a waiting game to see when my body will cooperate. Prior to Clarisonic, I've tried multiple products and never had any results. The first time I used my new Clarisonic, I could see and feel a difference. My face instantly felt smoother and my complexion was brighter. There was also an obvious difference in my makeup application. My makeup glided on flawlessly and stayed matte longer!

And guess what? All Clarisonic devices are waterproof!
