From genuine to vegan-friendly, a good leather jacket is one thing that never goes out of style. And now that's it's September, we're dusting off ours and putting it front and center in our closet. Of course black is our favorite, but we're also loving the different shades and colors that we've come across. Check out some options that we're swooning over!

In honor of Khloé Kardashian spilling some juicy secrets about her latest crush, Sparkle, we're spilling two secrets of our own.

1. Our Sunday nights are spent in front of a television watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
2. We can claim our love for all black ensembles all we want, but we can't help our attraction to sparkle.

So, it's no wonder we're in need of that sparkly necklace that Khloé Kardashian is rocking in this video. And did you see Khloé's dress at the end of the video? #INeedSparkle has never been more true! By the way, we now totally need a unicorn in our closet.

We can't wait until the next video to find out more about Khloé Kardashian's crush, Sparkle. Check back here on September 25th to see the reveal... on Jill's birthday!

One of my most annoying traits is my oily hair. I love that my hair is straight and easy maintenance, but it builds up oil easily, making it impossible to go more than 48 hours without looking like an oil slick. I've been told by stylists that my hair is too healthy and I need to "rough it up" to dry it out a bit (have you ever heard that one before?). So when I find a shampoo that helps this problem, and it can be bought at a drugstore, I'm compelled to share.

I recently picked up Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Shampoo on a whim and have noticed a significant difference in my hair. It helps take care of my oily scalp without leaving my hair feeling dry, and it also smells amazing. For those times when I don't want to use my expensive products, it's the perfect filler.

Maybe it was growing up with my brother's obsession with the brand, or my affinity for Spider-Man, but I've always had a love for Marvel. My best friend even threw me a Spider-Man themed birthday party for my 20th (you're never too old for Marvel). When my mom and I spotted this shirt in a local candy shop in Florida, I knew I had to pick it up.

It was the perfect top for our day sailing. I'm wearing a Marvel top, Target shorts and sandals, Burberry head wrap, Kate Spade Saturday sunglasses, and Nordstrom bracelet. 

Hoping I can get one more wear out of this top before summer ends!

My last South Dakota recap was all about Badlands National Park, and now it's time to head to the town of Wall, visit Mount Rushmore, and enjoy a few winding and scenic drives through the Black Hills and Custer State Park.

How could I not love a giant postcard?

This was the morning of my now fiancé's birthday, and what better way to celebrate than being total tourists by visiting national and local landmarks? With a camera strapped to my neck and postcards in hand, of course. The weather started out gloomy and wet, but looking back on this trip, we were glad to just get two days of rain when the whole trip was forecasted to be storms. Count ourselves lucky!

Wall is a small town (less than 800 people!) and home to Wall Drug, a cheesy roadside attraction that kept us entertained for much longer than we anticipated. It originally started off as a pharmacy, but grew to 76,000 square feet of gift shops, food, and local history. We got almost all of our knick knacks and souvenirs here, stayed for an arcade shooting game or two, and took advantage of the fun photo ops.

Okay, I just noticed it said "wallcome".

Wore an Urban Outfitters sweater, Gap denim shirt, The Limited leather leggings, Nordstrom crossbody, and Converse Jack Purcell sneakers.

Ever since I was a little girl, I've always wanted to see Mount Rushmore. No clue as to why, but I knew I had to get there at some point. When my fiancé and I were talking about a trip and South Dakota came up, I instantly was like, "wait... where is Mount Rushmore?! Yes, we're going there!"

On our way to Mount Rushmore. Love driving through small towns!

We're here!

After Mount Rushmore, we headed to the Black Hills and Custer State Park (our home for the next few days). We knew it was going to be beautiful, but we didn't know that it was going to be that gorgeous. We were introduced to spectacular scenery with stunning peaks, and some awesome roads to drive on! (My fiancé's favorite part.) We did the Iron Mountain and Needles Highway scenic drives, an awesome way to see the beauty of South Dakota, second to hiking it all!

Out in the open!

From Tiffany & Co.'s Atlas to Cartier's LOVE and Just un Clou, there are a few jewelry collections that are instantly recognizable and adored. While I either wasn't around or too young when these iconic creations came to be, there's no denying that we're witnessing an instant classic from Tiffany & Co. all over again.

Tiffany T is a collection is based on the simplicity of its name. Whether you like the prominent 'T' design, or enjoy the nod to the letter without being too obvious, this collection is for you. The sleek lines, the heaviness of metal in some pieces (all while staying feminine), and the modern look of every piece is absolutely stunning. There's rings, bracelets, and necklaces with a variety of metals and designs, but you can find my favorite pieces below. And oh yes, those rings will be mine.

What do you think about the new collection?
