Ruffle Hem Dress

Happy Friday friends! This week was a harsh reality check after getting back to school from Spring Break (Would anyone want to see pictures from my Montreal trip?). I am SO grateful that its finally Friday, the weather is finally getting warmer, and for the fun plans I have with my friends this weekend!

Some of you may know that I do work for a local Richmond boutique called  Mod&Soul! If you live in Richmond then you should make a point to stop by the store soon - the new arrivals are SO GOOD (think whites, blues, and stripes)! The owner is super lovely and has a great eye for trends and styles! I write for the  blog and occasionally help them out by modeling for social media content. We had some very random warm days at the end of February and beginning of March so it was great that we could shoot some of the warmer weather pieces. I didn't want to share it with you since its not technically Spring yet (who got hit by the blizzard) but with the warm sunshine that we have today, I couldn't wait to share.

When it comes to Spring clothes, my color palate usually doesn't stray far from whites, blues, and pink - and if it's striped then I love it even more! This powder  blue and navy striped dress is everything I couldn't want and more in a Spring dress! The fabric is light and airy and the shape is super flattering! I wore them with my  favorite gold sneaks for an easy daytime look!

Check out Mod&Soul's  blog for more of my blog posts and outfits!

Glossier Cloud Paint

Happy launch day!!! I have been (im)patiently waiting to share this with you guys ever since I found out about Glossier's  new product! I'm a group chat with all the other Glossier reps and I'm not even kidding when I tell you we were all up and chatting at 7am just to place our  orders and shade what shades we got! 

If you follow me on Instagram then you might have seen my story already - if not, then I'm going to give you the low down on the new  Glossier Cloud Paints. 


These gel-cream  blushes are inspired by the gradient color palettes of the NYC sunsets - hence the name 'cloud paint'. The formula is pillowy and lightweight and the shades are semi-sheer so the color totally buildable!

Cloud Paint comes in four colors:

Puff: a light, cool pink that creates a healthy brightening effect

Beam: a coral-peach shade that gives skin an energized glow

Dusk: a brownish nude that warms skin and adds definition

Haze: a berry shade that provides the perfect post-workout flush

Each Cloud Paint is $18 or $30 if you buy 2 - just use the code  2BLUSH. And if you shop on  my page you can 20% off your order! 

If you have any questions about  Cloud Paint or any other  Glossier product, feel free to leave a comment or send me an email (belleadoreblogs@gmail.com). I want to know what  shades you get!

A Life Update


Hi friends! I know it's been a little bit since my last post but there's no denying that this can be just a busy time during the semester. I seriously can't even believe that Spring Break starts on Thursday - and once we get back there's only six more weeks until the semester! Since it has been a while since I last talked to you guys, I figured I would just give you a brief update on what's going on with me!

1. Like I mentioned, Spring Break starts on Thursday for me and I will be going to MONTREAL with one of my best friends, Julia! I'm not exactly sure how we decided on Montreal but we are both still SO excited to go! We're meeting up with  some of Julia's friends and spending our time exploring the city! From what I hear, there's a ton of French influence so I already know I'm going to love it! If you have any recommendations for things to do/see/eat in Montreal...please let me know in the comments!

2. On Friday, I had the absolute pleasure of job shadowing a University of Richmond alumna at Tuckernuck! They are one of my favorite brands - I would honestly wear everything they have on their site! It was so amazing and inspiring to see all the hard work and team work that goes on to make such a great company like Tuckernuck possible! If you haven't checked them out, I recommend that you do! I just ordered these  adorable sunnies!

3. In other exciting news, I recently found out that I am going to be studying abroad in the Netherlands next semester! I am SO excited about studying abroad and despite all the nerves that I already have, I really think I'm going to have an amazing time! 

4. The picture from above is from when my friend  Lauren and I met up with a another Richmond blogger,  Stephanie of She Saw Style. One of the best things about blogging is definitely getting to meet all the blog/instagram friends IRL. We had so much to talk about and it was great to hear different perspectives about blogging and networking! 

5. As you may know, I do blogging for a local boutique in RVA,  Mod&Soul! I've posting over there about spring styles and new arrivals that are in store! One of my personal favorites is  this off the shoulder top!

What are your Spring Break Plans? Let me know in the comments!
