LimeLight

Limelight use code: TORUNN20 for 20% off |  Top  | Moto Leggings

 okay.. real talk though.. how many of y’all use snapchat? how many of y’all use instagram? how many of y’all send pics to friends & family?  now… the real question, how many selfies do you take a day? be honest…. Realistically, I probably take 30 on snapchat & multiple ones throughout the week on my Insta story.. However, they just got 3852580x times better!!! all because of LimeLight & it’s radiance! This simple clip-on light adds a glow to all your selfies & front face pics! It’s crazy how a ring of light does wonders to all your features!

I first saw these when my cousin Kyleigh had a lighted phone case. She complained that it died quickly & turning the light on & off made it worse. Shortly after, Limelight contacted me and I immediately thought, “this is way better than the phone case! I gotta try it!”  It clips on the top of your phone, has an adjustable dial for the light (like a brightness scale), & is charged by a USB port! So.. for all my selfie queens out there, this is what you need!!! They can also make for great presents & with the 20% off coupon it’s hard to beat!

so… if you’re out & about & you ever see me with my limelight on.. or you follow me on social media, keep in mind how much I love this lighted selfie ring!!! It’s so good!!!

BEAUTEAFUL Spoon  | You & Me 14K Gold Necklace with Initials

use code: JNDtorunnlee15 for 15% off (good until 12/31/16)


About a year ago my mom started a new tradition with me… (& for anyone who knows my mom, they know how creative she is & how she loves unique things!) so, during my college years, she started getting me hand stamped silver spoons and an occasional fork! she wanted to start a collection with me so one day I could use these as utensils in my house. Now for all my big occasions and holidays I get a new one! We just started this not too long ago and I already have so many unusual ones! It’s a great tradition for a family to start.

funny thing is when I teamed up with jessicandesigns to do a collab post I didn’t even realize this is where my mom had been ordering all my spoons! As I searched their website to choose my items, I came across this beau’TEA’ful spoon and immediately new I had to have it! all the spoons have a special place in my heart, including this one that they sent me!

the necklace is also one of my new favorites! It’s personable and very cute! I love the gold  & silver two tone. It’s also available in 3 other styles! This could make for a great wedding or engagement gift!

I recommend these RINGS &  this COFFEE MUG!! so many adorable things! Let me know if you have any questions!

xoxo, T

This sweater is the perfect waffle knit! Super cozy, comfortable, and soft! I am also obsessed with the color! I like to think of it as “dusty rose”.  A mix between pink and purple.. or something of that sort 😉 && the hat!!!! love, love, love a good hat! It’s a fall favorite and one I will wear all season long!!

Aside from fashion talk a little life update on me.. 57 days till graduation! currently packing to head back home to Kentucky for the weekend. engagement pictures Saturday.. and job searching! that’s my life in a nutshell!

Hope you all have a fabulous day!!! xoxoxo, T

Peach State Pride

Georgia Counties Long Sleeve Tee  |  Peach State Pride Pocket Tee  |  Blue Georgia Sweatshirt

“chilling on the beach with my sweet georgia peach”.. literally the entire time I’ve worked on this blog post I have been signing that song!! It’s going to be stuck in my head for a while now.. but as being from Kentucky, now residing in ATL, I consider myself a half Ky gal, half Georgia Peach. My fiancés dad even refers to me as the “Georgia Peach” (it’s kinda cute if you ask me) – so to show some true “Peach State Pride” I am sharing 3 comfortable looks today!  Can you take a guess at which top is my favorite!?  being blonde hair & blue eyed, I love blue clothes.. so that narrow’s it down to 2… now take a guess…

ok, yeah it’s the sweatshirt!!! from the moment I put it on I never wanted to take it off! It’s super soft, light weight (I hate bulky sweatshirts), and has great material! As the nights are getting cooler I am going to keep wearing this thing until nothing is left! definitely recommend this for casual, cozy wear 🙂

Happy Monday!!! I have finally found myself settled back in ATL, starting classes today, and finding some time to share my engagement story and cruise pictures with you all!  before we begin.. I apologize for the long, sappy, lovey dovey post, but my heart & head are currently on Cloud 9.. & idk if I’ll ever come back down haha 😉

So.. for starters.. How did C & I meet? I know I have shared this on my blog before, but for all you newbies, we have been life long friends! We grew up going to my uncle’s basketball games together, on family vacays, and spending our weekends on the lake. It wasn’t until the summer going into my sophomore year of college that we really connected and hit it off! Right before I was suppose to head back to Atlanta for my 2nd year here at GaTech, C asked me out. We had our first date on the river, in Owensboro, KY.  He was originally only planning on coming for 1 night, but he ended up staying all weekend (that should’ve been sign #1 – I just couldn’t get enough of him). The following week I drove to his home town (Paducah, KY) and surprised him at work! I sent him a snap outside of his office & it said, “Is it bring your gf to work today yet?”  from there on out the rest is kinda history.  We have had so many ups and downs the past 3 years, filled with lots of love, endless fights, romantic moments, hardships, and unforgettable memories. I could lie and say it’s been easy, but it hasn’t. We have had to work twice as hard to keep this going.. because anyone in a long distance relationship knows just how tough it really can be. but through it all we’ve not only been madly in love, but we’ve been best friends! & there is nobody else I would rather spend forever with!!

Engagement!!!!!!! alright here we are & we have we planned this once in a lifetime vacation.. and yes we have spent so much time talking about a future life, marriage, and what not (I  mean.. we do have a dog together 😉 all in all a commitment in itself) so naturally, I thought an engagement might be in the cards. I packed my bag full of potential “engagement outfits” and spent countless nights awake dreaming of that moment…  to fully share the story I am just going to create a replica of the timeline we experienced & give you the details of the full day (cause little hints along the way make it really special)

9:00 AM – wake up in Seattle after a night out with my family! we grab breakfast on the pier, chat about our upcoming school schedules, and plan for our day around the city

11:00 AM – we head to Pike Marketplace — It was so crowded we decided to head to the Space Needle

11:45 AM- we are the Space Needle, C is checking his phone to verify our arrival time for the cruise.. he suddenly starts freaking out & getting visibly upset (which he never does —  I am always the high strung stressed out one) so.. I remain super, super calm when he tells me we haven’t printed our luggage tags or boarding passes. I blow it off & am like, “no way they don’t let us on the ship.. we’re going to be fine”  *** ding, ding, ding – SIGN #1 – he is planning a proposal for that night and freaked out of his mind that we aren’t even going to be able to get on the ship!!!!

1:45 PM – we get through the baggage line, go through security, and are almost home safe to check in & board — C says, “I made dinner reservations at the nice Italian Place tonight” ***ding, ding, ding – SIGN #2 – I am the planner!!! always, always, always.. but I still didn’t catch the hint, “I was just like wow you made reservations.. what!?” he said, “I know Italian is your favorite” – I respond, “well how about we just go somewhere low key tonight since it’s our first night on the ship”  Here I am messing up his engagement plans cause I am so anxious about exploring the ship and worried our dinner reservations will get messed up!

3:30 PM- we finally board the ship & get to our room.  Being my OCD self I immediately start unpacking. After I finished my stuff, I grabbed C’s backpack and was about to start unpacking his! ***ding, ding, ding – SIGN #3 he says, “no I got it. I don’t want you to have to do that baby” & normally he wouldn’t care.. but I just thought, “wow – he’s being sweet and doesn’t want me to have to do all his work too” at this point I still have no clue he is going to propose

4:30 PM- we go to book excursions.. being a girl, a planner, and super curious all the time I am thinking in my head, “ok.. wonder if he would propose on any of these excursions?”

5:30 PM- we head back to the room.. I said, “well we have some time to kill, want to go shoot a blog post before dinner” he said, “sure!”  I asked, “do you like this olive romper or maroon dress better? or can I go causal? what are you wearing?”  this is so normal because we always bounce our clothes ideas off each other.. if I wear Nike sweats, he wears Nike sweats.. If I am fixed up, he likes to get fixed up.. it’s like our thing.. when we bum, we bum! when we clean up, we clean up!  so.. he responds, “no let’s look nice tonight” ***ding, ding, ding – SIGN #4 – C wants to get cleaned up!! I just throw on the romper and we head to the deck to shoot some pics!

6:15 PM- finish up the blog post and head back in, he says, “wow, T, your hair is looking like a hot mess” ***ding, ding, ding – SIGN #5 – “are you going to recurl it?” he asked me… ya, right.. no way I am recurling my hair.. still am not catching the hints here…

6:45 PM – “ok, come on, let’s just go on to dinner. I am hungry. maybe they can seat us early!” I say..  “No Torunn.. they may be busy.. let’s just wait a couple more minutes” *** ding, ding, ding – SIGN #6 – he obviously had a timeline with the proposal, reservation, and photographer!! that’s why he wanted to stick to the time frame!!

7:00 PM – sit down at dinner and C says, “let’s get a bottle of wine”  followed by, “you should’ve set on this side. the view of the sunset is so spectacular” (which it’s a good thing I didn’t because I would’ve seen the photographer walk in) *** ding, ding, ding – SIGN #7 – order a bottle of wine when we have the free drink package???? hmmm… I’m not opposed though… so we order my favorite kind, which is kind of hard to find, Albarino!!  &&& sit with the prettiest view ever!!! 😉

7:30 PM- the best meal I may have ever had arrives, lobster and pasta!!! literally my two favorite things.. and I start to notice C is acting weird.. I didn’t think too much of it though because I am the talker in the relationship & I spent all of dinner talking about random stuff.. but I kinda said, “you’re being weird tonight”  he totally blew it off… then I catch him looking at his watch! *** ding, ding, ding – SIGN #8-   HeLLO! we are on a cruise, where do we have to be!? time isn’t a thing rn……. but I still didn’t get catch on! & he’s just anticipating 8 PM when he’s going to pop the question and the photographer jumps out

8:00 PM – we finish up, look at the dessert menu, and he says, “take a pic with me?”  okkkkkk this is the biggest *ding, ding, ding of them all!!!!! – SIGN #9 – C never asks to takes pictures!!! that’s me. always me!!!!!!!!  I immediately respond, “what!? you never want to take a picture?  like do you want to stand up or stay sitting down? what’s gotten into you!?”  in all honesty, it still hadn’t even occurred to me that he might be popping the question.. like I genuinely thought it was coming later on the cruise if it came at all.  so… I stand up, take the picture with him. go to reach for my phone, turn around…… &&&& OMGGGGGG there is my handsome boyfriend, on one knee, shaking, and looking up at me with his big brown eyes…. ekkkkkk!!! I’m shocked. ok.. literally in shock…. let’s look at the pics before we continue the story!!

9632_James (3 of 10) 9632_James (2 of 10) 9632_James (1 of 10) 9632_James (4 of 10) 9632_James (6 of 10) IMG_6555 9632_James (5 of 10) 9632_James (7 of 10) 9632_James (8 of 10) 9632_James (9 of 10) 9632_James (10 of 10)

my thoughts– I am in tears.. I can’t stop crying.. Idk what he even said to me.. Idk what is happening.. omg.. did I answer him!? (I said, “of course” btw) ahhh.. he can’t get the ring on my finger.. I am so tense.. I am shaking.. people are clapping.. flashes are going off!!!!!! OKKK!!! what just happened!??

yeah…. on August 13th, 2016 the man of my dreams asked me to marry him & it will forever be one of the best days of my life!!!

8:15 PM – 3 AM – we called people, we laughed together, we cried, we ordered everything on the room service menu, I didn’t take my eyes off the ring, and we officially started a new chapter in our lives!!!

4 AM – I fell asleep for an hour

5 AM – woke up to my fiancé, feeling high on love, thanking God, and celebrating with endless messages!!!!!!!!

what a day, what a day!!!!!!!!!!!! I am still in a shocked state of mind & trying to wrap my head around it all! from here we are still deciding on future plans, discussing wedding dates & venues, & ready to be reunited with our little Oslo!

Cheers to love & my happily ever after!!!!

 

Hope you all enjoyed this post as much as I have sharing it!! xoxoxo, T

omgggg!!! these leggings are so heavenly!!! not only are they very comfortable, they are perfect material for cold days or hot days!! I paired them with a white tee and maroon sweater (which I’ve worn 3 times on this cruise already haha) — sidetone: the leggings are a little expensive ($110) but I promise they are so worth the money! I am definitely getting another pair as soon as I decide on a color 😉 splurge on these and I promise you won’t be disappointed!!

so Alaska…. it’s been fun, fun, fun!!!! I need to do so many recaps from my recent excursions & outfits, but we’ve been so busy I haven’t had time. from glacier trekking, horseback riding, sightseeing, and eating lots of yummy meals we literally haven’t stopped!!!! not to mention… the wifi has been a constant battle.. definitely want to get some posts up soon though so I can share with you all about my vacation, the highlights, and the must do’s & see’s 😉 😉

Hope you all are having a great week!!!

Day 1: Beautiful, Beautiful Weather!!! so…. naturally, we sat by the pool all day! ordered pizza, snacked on fruit, and soaked up the sun! Our resort has multiple pools, with swim up pool bars, and jacuzzi jets! makes for some entertaining scenery 😉 I feel like the first day of vacation is always used for settling in, resting, and playing catch up from all the traveling.

Day 2: We toured our resort (Pueblo Bonito), had the best breakfast buffet, watched the Olympics, then headed into town for dinner at Mi Casa! Also… we made a late night Starbucks run! & yes, they have a Starbucks here!!!! how perfect, right!? I went with Matcha 😉

Day 3: spent the whole day preparing for a hurricane — yes, a hurricane!! omg and did it rain!!! it poured… on & off all day! We originally scheduled a “swim with the dolphin” excursion but the weather was not in our favor! after venturing out on the flooded roads & searching for the place, turns out only 3 of us really had the heart to get in the pool, with a full blown storm (and it wasn’t me — I stayed buried inside)

Day 4: forecast called for rain…. & surprise!! It ended up being a beautiful day! I started my day at 8 AM with a facial.. they did a radiation therapy on my skin that increased blood flow circulation. It was the first time I have ever had this technique done on me but I loved it.. afterwards my skin felt absolutely amazing!!  Around lunchtime we sat by the pool, then headed out for our afternoon, ATV Excursion!!!  It was so, so, so, so much fun!!! highly recommended doing this! It’s great family fun & definitely a memorable experience! here are some pics 😉 (excuse the iPhone quality)
