"I’m a total nerd which many people don’t expect!"
I was born and raised in the countryside of Ohio and moved to the heart of Florida almost five years ago. Whew, time has flown by! I’m currently a full time college student planning to pursue my Bachelors and Masters at Rollins College of Business within the next year. I’m a total nerd which many people don’t expect! Next to being a student, I am a part time fashion blogger and model. I’m at such a great age in life where I have the opportunity to doing so many wonderful things at once, and I’m so grateful for that!
2) How did you first get into fashion blogging?
I’ve grown up always loving fashion and have journals and journals of design sketches. No shame to say that I was the middle school kid who always got busted for drawing in class, haha! The whole “idea” or “dream” of becoming a fashion blogger actually blossomed when I was taking my senior pictures with my now personal photographer and forever best friend. I just kept expressing how much I wanted a creative platform to express my absolute adoration for fashion and we threw out the idea, it stuck, and here I am now living my dream of having a career in it.

"I’ve always wanted to be known as someone who is extremely classy and elegant"
I’ve always wanted to be known as someone who is extremely classy and elegant, which was where my style to represent that description came to life. Some of my fashion role models are woman like Elizabeth Taylor, Jackie O, and Kate Middleton. Woman well renowned for their poise and grace. I want to be the woman that’s invited to work with Chanel or Fendi over Victoria Secret. Not that VS isn’t great (their undergarments are the bomb) but it’s just not the image I wanted to portray for myself personally!
"Jewerly is such a unique way to change up any outfit and add to it."
My absolute favorite piece of jewelry that I own is my purity ring. It has three diamonds and melted down silver from numerous generations of family heirlooms, which makes it that much more beautiful and special to me. Next to that I have a Guess watch that I wear all the time, as well as several layering necklaces I’m always styling. It’s so hard to narrow down favorites, because each piece I adore for different reasons! Jewerly is such a unique way to change up any outfit and add to it. I’m pretty sure I have more pieces of jewelry in my closet than clothes, haha it’s bad!
5) Where do you usually buy your jewelry from?
I typically buy my jewelry from Forever 21 because I am always wanting and needing new pieces to change up the looks I’m styling. It’s hard to do this if I had to always buy more expensive accessories, so I stick to F21 since it’s affordable and always up to date with current trends!
"What really stands out to me about Tippy Taste though is that each piece that’s offered is so chic."
6) We noticed you have a thing for subscription boxes lately. From what you've seen so far could you share with us what stands out the most to you about Tippy Taste?
I do have a thing for them! How can you not?! They’ve got to be one of the best things life has to offer! What really stands out to me about Tippy Taste though is that each piece that’s offered is so chic. As I mentioned, my style is very classy and elegant and the pieces reflect that perfectly. I have trouble going through the shop page without adding nearly every piece into my cart! Forever 21 has always been my go to because it’s affordable, but it can get hard sometimes because I wish the pieces at least looked more expensive. With Tippy Taste pieces they look super expensive but are insanely affordable! Sign me up for three times a month!

"I plan on one day launching my own clothing line, which is another reason I launched Kahlea Nicole. As a foundation for that childhood dream as well!"
7) Lastly, what are your future plans for your blog and life?
In regards to my blog I plan on continuing to expand its reach and within the next few months begin to really monetize it more and more. I want to get to the point where I basically do this as a living! I plan on one day launching my own clothing line, which is another reason I launched Kahlea Nicole. As a foundation for that childhood dream as well! I’m so blessed with how far I’ve gotten in just half a year, and so excited for what’s next. I know the best is yet to come!

"I like to think of myself as the typical Southern Belle, with a modern twist."
I'd love to! Well, my name is Rebecca. I currently reside in the beautiful city of Charleston, South Carolina. Which, by the way, was just voted the #1 city in the world by Travel and Leisure Magazine. I'm originally from Camden, South Carolina, which is the epitome of a "small town". I like to think of myself as the typical Southern Belle, with a modern twist. I'm a law student, dog mom, and avid supporter of affordable fashion. When I'm not in my law library, I'm either kayaking or napping... I'm a huge supporter of the afternoon nap!
"There's something really powerful about embracing your personal style, and even more empowering when you can do it without breaking your budget."
"My style is essentially feminine, affordable, and trendy."

What's the first thought that comes to mind when you think of Russia? spies, criminals, femme fatales?
Well, we are about to find out! This summer our Tippy Taste team took a trip to Russia, Moscow. Our first thought when we arrived was, "wow, it's chilly." Although it was during summer but early morning and night the weather gets rather chilly. We couldn't wait to see what Moscow has to offer.
Throughout the Cold War, Moscow used to be the capital of the "other" world, the home of lofty ideals and harsh realities. But Moscow's strange charm remains, carrying with it more history than one can imagine.
Our short trip mostly consisted of visiting the grand architectures, Kremlin and breathtaking restaurants. All of which inspired us for our September collection. Enjoy!
Inspired by the gold and red combination, we handpicked this Svetlana bracelet below as it gives off a royal vibe.
Can you believe this majestic place is actually a restaurant? It's rococo interior with its magnificent center piece chandelier surely got us dazzled. We can definitely see some resemblance of the interior characteristics in our Anastasia drops.
Part of the famous Kremlin- who could resist the classic combination of black and gold? We surely couldn't, therefore we fell deeply in love with this Veronika necklace.
Hope you enjoyed our little trip here. We will end this post with a view of the Kremlin shot from our hotel room. Dobroy nochi! (Goodnight in Russian)
The month of June was very special because we made a trip across the globe to Asia. Our destinations were Taiwan, Hong Kong and China. Therefore the pieces we selected incorporated characteristics of Asia culture and modern vibe.
This shot was taken in China, Wuxi. Sceneries in China looks like a painting. If you look at the far distance you will notice the modern architectures. It's like a contrast of the old and the new. Reminded us of how far our world has evolved.
This shot was taken at a temple in Taiwan. Taiwanese temple is magnificent, with years of history behind it. Some prominent colors used on this temple are red, blue, green and yellow.
If you have been to Hong Kong, you know that Hong Kong is a very modern city filled with millions of people. Everyone is packed into tiny apartments. This view was taken at the popular Victoria harbor during day time.
Below are the pieces in our June box:
First up are these beautiful marble cuff ring that reminded us of chinese porcelain. Delicate and fragile. The gold band adds a touch of modernization to these pieces.
Next up were these pair of Royal Blue earrings. These selection was inspired by the temples we saw in Taiwan. The bold blue and gold color combination used reminded us of royalty.
Third piece were these horn pendants. According to chinese legends, horns are one of the rarest things one can find in this world. Hence it is often considered a lucky charm. The horn pendant was one of our favorite piece because of the beautiful turquoise color.
Last but not least are these pair of Bead Accent Fringe drops. The center piece is a cabochon cut hexagon stone that reflects whatever color dress you are wearing. The fringes reminded us of the crowns chinese emperors wear in the kingdom.
