Happy New Year!

January 3, 2016

I love the fresh start that the New Year brings. For some, myself included, the looming New Year brings with it a lot of dread. As of the 29th, I didn’t have any NYE plans, wasn’t sure what my New Year’s resolutions were going to be, and I was just not looking forward to 2016. Thankfully, I received a text from one of my friends, asking if I wanted to join her in drinking champagne and watching the ball drop.…

Planning, Simplified

Emily Ley Simplified Planner 2

If you’re following me on Instagram, you would know that it was my Dad’s birthday this past week. I’m terrible with remembering birthdays, or most anything else,  so I write everything down in my planner. Literally, if you were to open it to any day of the week, you’d see a list of the classes I have that day, if I was planning to go to the gym, outfit inspiration, things to accomplish in lab, and what I plan on…

Shell Me About It

What did you think of the Lilly Pulitzer After-Party sale? This year was the first time that Lilly utilized Queue-It, a software program that restricted the number of people who were put through to the site based on the time that they first attempted to access it. By the time my browser refreshed itself at 7:59 am on Monday morning, I was ~3100th in line with a wait time of little over an hour. I really was going to give up, not…

Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale 2015

August 16, 2015

Oh shift! Only 12 more hours till the Lilly Pulitzer After-Party Sale! Somewhat behind the trend, I honestly didn’t embrace Lilly till I bought myself a 2015 Lilly Pulitzer agenda and I loved all of the bright colors and patterns adorning the pages. Next came Lilly for Target, which I know was only a derivative of the Lilly brand, but seriously, throwing on a shift dress and a pair of Sperry’s takes almost no-effort and produces a 100% put-together outfit. I’m…

Lilly Pulitzer for Target Giveaway!!

May 2, 2015

It’s official! F&F’s very first giveaway is up and running and I’m so happy to be sharing something with you from my absolute favorite place, Target. When I originally came to UConn I first Googled how far away Trader Joe’s was, and then second, how far away I was from Target. As both my Mom and my boyfriend unfortunately know, I can literally spend three hours in Target walking up and down the aisles putting things in my cart, only to…

It’s been sixteen hours since Lilly for Pulitzer for Target has been released and the current status quo is: Ebay is filled with marked-up shift dresses, some as high as $150! Several items have 10+ bidders vying for them, and for the lucky merchant, eager shoppers have doubled/tripled the asking price. Lilly for Target officially went live at 3 am, but the overwhelming amount of traffic crashed the site not too long after Stores were sold out within minutes of opening, which…
