How to keep your white clothes WHITE | Link Up

I always am asked how I keep all of my white clothes white. Major secret-spilling today! I even have a full white bed (sheets and all), they always stay white from this trick!

I LOVE white. Seriously, everything in white is my dream. I have no idea where this obsession came from but here we are. It could be that white is such a bright color or rather a shade, that it brightens up the gloomy weather here in Oregon. I love our white bedroom, it’s so relaxing!

With a very outdoorsy husband, white doesn’t always stay white when I want it to. I have a couple grease stains on my bed spread to prove it! This trick won’t get grease stains out but hopefully, you aren’t like me and have that anywhere near our bed. Jason has since understood that his guns and cleaning kit are not supposed to used on our bed. I have been able to hold it together in times like this though because I have a secret weapon. 

Meet the Clorox Bleach Pen, it’s my right-hand man! I have one in my nightstand for times that little spots get on our duvet. I squeeze a drop of it on the spot once it’s cleaned and boom! The stain is gone.

This trick is used on my white jeans, tops, tees, dresses, shoes, etc. I usually have one in my purse or at least a Tide to go pen. I love washing my white clothes with borax and vinegar to help with those pesky stains as well. 

Next time you hesitate to buy that cute dress in white, buy it but also buy the

Clorox Bleach Pen!

Spring Shoes Must Haves | Part Two | Jambu Footwear

Spring heels need to be both cute and comfortable. These are the MOST comfortable heels I have ever worn. A MUST!

I hope you enjoyed my first round of my Spring Shoes must haves. The next pair from Jambu Footwear do NOT disappoint!

Beauty is pain, sometimes, but it doesn’t always have to be. I will sacrifice my comfort for a cute outfit or shoe because I am obsessed with it. THESE comfortable heels from Jambu Footwear left me without having to sacrifice my comfort or style!

I am obsessed with the wooden block look, these are not like other block heels, though. The Valentina has a thick comfort sole that cushions your foot and doesn’t allow you to feel the stiffness of the block heel. This is not typical of this style of shoe, that is why I am amazed at these! Typically a wooden heel will have very little cushion to the point where standing on them for extended periods of time is impossible. I was able to stand in church while rocking my sweet nephew with no discomfort or pain with these!

The straps are a soft supple leather in a nude color, aka I will be wearing them with EVERYTHING! There is a buckle on the ankle strap but there is actually velcro underneath of it so you don’t have to fasten anything. The velcro is very strong, it will not loosen as you walk. I even dance in these beauties without the velcro moving at all!



When someone mentions the words, comfortable heels, I don’t picture the Valentina which is why there are amazing for keeping you both stylish and comfortable. Use code ‘TOPKNOT10’ for 10% off your order HERE! Note to self, this code expires April 16th so don’t wait.

5 Essentials for a Fool Proof Shopping Trip.

As a born and raised shopper, I have realized I have a skill set not everyone was taught. There are so many things you can do to help make your shopping trip easier, here are my top 5!

I did not come by my techniques for shopping on my own, thanks to my mama, I was able to learn from the get go. I have 5 things that I do for every shopping trip and it makes it so much more smooth. Even if you have kiddos or have very little time to shop, these will help.

ONE, coffee. Hello!!! This is always the first step. Whether it’s coffee in a to-go mug from home or you treat yourself to a fun coffee from Starbucks. You need fuel for your trip!

TWO, your phone. Yes, this seems simple but I use my phone for many reasons when shopping. I have a running list of the items I am looking for that I need to fill gaps in my closet or that are old and need replacing. I also use my phone to take photos of items I love and want to remember. Lastly, I use it for looking up coupons for the store.

THREE, know what you are looking for. If you wander aimlessly, you will most likely be buying lots of items you don’t need and be missing the items you truly need. I have a rolling list of items on my notes section on my phone to remind me when I am shopping.

FOUR, know what a good price is. Do your homework before you go shopping to know if what you are looking for will be a good price when you find it. I love to do this, even on the go. Don’t let the sale signs fool you, the prices still might be better somewhere else!

FIVE, don’t buy it if you don’t LOVE it. I’m very serious about this one. If you don’t love it in the store or in the dressing room, you won’t love it when you get home. You will have a closet full of items you sort of like. Not a good scenario.

For the rest of my list of tips for a fool proof shopping trip, sign up for my newsletter! The rest will be sent out to my subscribers on April 2nd!
