Abercrombie & Fitch| Layers and Lipstick Picks

I hope y’all had a great Easter weekend! I have been trying very hard to set a shopping limit for myself monthly and that includes finding good deals. When I spot good savings I always want to share with you guys.

When was the last time you shopped at Abercrombie and Fitch? I can’t tell you the last time I shopped there or walked in their store… but as of lately I have had my eyes on some trendy layering pieces for this Spring. Everything online is currently 50% and today is the last day! I am sharing with you guys what I got from this awesome sale.

Travel Diary- Graduate Hotel Stay | Lincoln Nebraska

 I have always been a firm believer that a mini get-away is good for the soul and I always tell others that but never really do it for myself. Well, I finally did a couple weeks back. Andrew and I went to Nebraska for a one night stay at the Graduate Hotel. Our minds were blown by how unique this hotel was. Just walking in you were greeted with kind staff and bright decor. The Graduate Hotels reside in the most dynamic university towns across the country.

When we got to our room we probably spent about 15 minutes noticing all the little quirks the room had. The interior designer of this hotel did not miss a beat.

The main lobby was to die for. I have never been in awe when walking into a hotel until I walked into the Graduate.

I wanted to bring this emerald green couch home. I noticed the cornhusk drapes (Nebraska Cornhuskers) so cool seeing the Lincoln traditions being incorporated into these rooms.  We were obsessed with this couch if you couldn’t tell!

How groovy is this pool, it makes me want to buy a high waisted bathing suit, throw my hair up in a tall bun and kick back and relax with a big pair of sunglasses on! Ha!

When I walked in to see all the bright pastels my heart was so happy. Sad news, I forgot my swimsuit we realized as we were running through our list of things when we were on the road. That just gives us an excuse to go back this summer!

Thank you Graduate Hotel for the accommodations on our one night stay- the staff was superb. Andrew and I had a blast, we will be back again!

If you are looking for a good get-away but not too far from home, I can’t say this enough, stay at the Graduate. They have several different locations including Lincoln- Nebraska, Ann Arbor- Michigan, Chicago just to name a few. You can check out their website here Graduate Hotel to book your trip to the one closest to you.

 

The Perfect Sweater Weather

I love a good sweater, especially when it is affordable and comfy! I have linked some affordable cozy sweaters/ cardigans below that I know you are going to just love!

Early this week I asked you all to send me questions that you want to know about Andrew and I. Whether that be about us individually you want to know, or about our relationship in general! We are excited to film this video. We had plans to do it around Christmas but this gal got sick so we have postponed it to this weekend! If you have any last minute questions, comment below questions or feel free to shoot me an email as well to hello@layersandlipstick.com! We want to hear from you 🙂

We love that you guys want to hear more about us and we look forward to sharing our story <3 Have a happy Tuesday!
