How to Throw a Galentine’s Party

You may be reading this and thinking “Victoria, Valentine’s day is short of a month away. There are so many other important things happening right now.”  But it’s never too early to start party planning! Whether you or in a relationship or not, get a bunch of your girlfriends together, throw some pink decorations up and celebrate your friendship. There is really nothing better than having a strong group of girls to back you when life gets tough. So why do we need an excuse to celebrate that? Read More

Shein Christmas Wishlist

I’m a girl who loves shopping and buying new things but my bank account doesn’t always agree with these habits. Then, I discovered and I feel a little less guilty every time I order something. Let me tell you why.

Shein is an international site that sells women’s clothing for so cheap compared to what you might pay for in the US. But it’s not one of those headaches of a shop that sends you half put together clothes in the wrong size. I’ve ordered so many things from this site and have been satisfied every time. (Take into account that while shipping is usually free, it does take about 2-3 weeks to come in.)

If you are a girl who fancies new clothes and the latest trends – you’ve found your new go-to place.  I partnered with Shein to create a “Christmas Wish List” of all of the things I want to get my hands on this season. I’ll make sure to link each piece so you can shop these insanely cute pieces!

3. Lace Up Side Ribbed Knit Sweater  (I have this also and receive so many compliments every time I wear it!)

4.Tiered Ruffle Sleeve Tie Sweater

5. Lace Up Side Suede Ankle Boot

6. Bow Tie Deocrated Velvet Bucket Bag:

7. Lace Up Back Jumper Sweater

*There is a Cyber Sale event going on and most of the store is up to 90% off!

Special thanks to Shein for partnering with us on this post.


Our Unique Christmas Tree

I’m sure I speak for a mass of people when I say Christmas is my favorite holiday. There is something about the excitement in the weeks leading up to Christmas that radiates such pure joy. If I could, I would pull all of the stops for Christmas decor and turn my house into a freaking winter wonderland but with only a few weeks to decorate and a college budget (ha) we had to get creative this Christmas.

My parents surprised my roommates and I with a real Christmas tree at our doorstep Sunday night. We had already planned on putting out our beautiful fake one but didn’t want to miss out on the freshness of the memorable pine scent. So now we have two trees and you can only imagine how freaking excited I am (hint: my second time using the word ‘freaking’).

My roommate, Lizzie, ordered these adorable mini prints from Social Print Studio a while back and I’m so glad we brought them out and stuck them on our tree. We added candy canes for an extra Christmas touch and are all obsessed with how it turned out.

After posting videos of the tree on my Insta Story (@viclynstinson) and receiving such positive feedback, I decided to share the idea with all of you. I hope it inspired a new way to Christmas this holiday season and I’d love to see pictures of your version of our modern Christmas Tree.
