Hey babes! Today is the official first day of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for cardholders. If you don't have one, you can still apply on their website! The sale opens to the public on July 20th though! Today I went to Easton (our local mall in Columbus) to check out what Nordstrom had put out for their new releases that are on MAJOR discount. I had an amazing stylist Keilee Harkins who was was so helpful and set me all up to try on a ton of goodies! If I didn't come down with a migraine I probably would have gotten more (bet Justin is glad this didn't happen!) My biggest tip for the sale is to buy whatever you are slightly interested in because everything is going to fly off the shelves and Nordstrom offers free shipping and free returns! So if you don't like something, you can just return it! 

I picked up lots of athleisure wear and basics. I am going to order some gifts which is another tip I have if you have any friends with birthdays or any anniversaries coming up. There are soooo many good brands to pick from during the sale such as BP, Steve Madden, Topshop, Nike, Adidas, Free People and Tory Burch! 

I will be posting everything in the Like to Know It app as well so make sure you follow me there! If you have any questions at all, always feel free to reach out on direct message or email me--> whereyourheartisnow@gmail.com. Can't wait to see what you guys get! Xx

Wait you get botox?......Ok good so do I! That's what so many girls have said to me after they found out I started getting botox. It's crazy to me that botox is still such a secret to everyone because it has so many benefits I don't know why you wouldn't do it. Now I'll admit, some people do go overboard but so far all of my experiences have been awesome. Let's get into it. 

First of all, what is botox? Botox is a drug used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing the underlying muscles. 

I recently went to Columbus Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery otherwise known as CAPS here in Columbus and I wanted to tell you guys about my botox experience. After we walked in and got a tour we went in a room and I met with my Doctor, Tyler Angelos. He was not only professional but he was funny. I love when people make me feel comfortable before I'm getting something uncomfortable done, does that make sense? lol. He was very honest and didn't just tell me things I wanted to hear. I love that at CAPS the actual doctors are the ones injecting you. 

Dr. Angelos had me hold up a mirror and show him what areas I didn't like about my face. Now let me give you a little back story. I have been getting botox since I was 28, I am 29 now and I always get it in the same three places: my "elevens", my "crows feet" and my forehead. Your "elevens" otherwise known as glabella are between your eyes and your crows feet are the lines you develop next to the outer corners of your eyes when you smile. A few people have commented I am too young to get botox but CAPS believes the younger you start the less your wrinkles will appear as you get older. 

After we discussed everything I wanted, it was go time. The first time I got botox you guys...you're gonna die. I literally had an anxiety attack and starting sweating and almost passed out. I don't like needles and I felt the needle going in my head and puncturing my muscle. When I went to CAPS I was like ok Nicole, get your game face on. There is gonna be a lot of a people around and you don't wanna look like a fool. Then the gates of Heaven opened up and they whipped out this tool... 

See that gold thing right there? That is called the distractor, which is exactly what it does. I put on some Post Malone and they used the distractor and it was all done in less than a minute! I felt like a freakin champ. I got 28 units total. 

Botox takes anywhere from 4-7 days to show up and a maximum of two weeks. 

It lasts 3 months. It can last up to 4 months for some people! 

Botox normally ranges between $10-$14 a unit and like I said lasts three months. You do not have to go every three months but I can definitely tell when I don't. If you live in Ohio you should definitely check out CAPS I will be going back there. They were awesome! 

Thank you for having me CAPS

Why it's ok to say no

June 29, 2018

Earrings: Forever 21 Top: Chicwish c/o Jeans: Express Wedges: Jellypop c/o

Looking for a cute top to wear with friends or to work? I've got you covered! This top from Chicwish  would look so cute tucked in a skirt for work or with some jeans and wedges like I did for happy hour! This gorgeous mesh ruffle top makes me look so sweet and innocent but that doesn't mean I don't know how to stand my ground. As of recently I have had tons of people asking me to do things for my blog and post things that just aren't me and aren't something I would represent. It's hard in the blogging world because if you are a 'yes' person like me, you typically want to say yes to everyone. I'm always like well what if they never email me again or what if this is my only chance....blah blah blah. But if you don't feel confident about a product or whatever a company is asking of you, don't do it. I want you to apply this to your everyday life as well, not just with blogging. My mom literally says 'yes' to e v e r y o n e. She never does anything for herself and I'm trying to teach her that it's not selfish if she says no sometimes! Love you mom! 

This is your life and only you can take control of it. My friend Lindsay just started a podcast called Let's Get Real and it is so empowering! I told her after listening to it I truly felt like I could conquer the world. Don't let other people dictate how you run your life, remember you only live once! :)
