Friday Favs

Does anyone else feel like this week lasted forever? I swear the weekend seemed like it was never coming! BUT even with the week dragging on I was also more productive than most weeks. I am really sticking to my 2018 goals and we are more than halfway through the month. How many days does it take to make a… View Post

Book Review: Soulful Simplicity

I did it! It may have taken me a little bit longer than I wanted, but I finally finished my mom’s book Soulful Simplicity. All I can say is this is exactly why I always say that my mom is both my best friend and is always right. This book is a culmination of many life lessons I watched her… View Post

Friday Favs

Alright, guys, this was supposed to go up yesterday evening as part of an ongoing series of some of my favorite things that I have seen over the week.

Winter Bucket List 2018

I used to wite mini bucket lists all the time, but after graduating and getting a full-time job I took a break from them. I was trying to figure out my schedule and settle into what real “adulting” looks like.

5 Things To Add For a Happier 2018

Normally around this time of the year, I spend some time reflecting on the past 12 months but not this year. 2017 was one for the books, my friends.

Clearer and Healthier Skin (oh ya now I take my makeup off)

I have never been the girl who took off her makeup before bed or made sure to moisturize every day. I know, I know I will regret it when I get older. That’s why I took the opportunity to try out the Clarisonic Mia Device. I challenged myself to set aside five minutes in the morning and 5 minutes at… View Post

Bringing Your Own Joy to Social Media

Guys, it’s time to get real. I have spent the past few years absolutely in love with social media. IN LOVE! This is no joke when people talk about disconnecting or the downsides to social I just scoffed and found a million reasons why those people were wrong. But over the past two weeks, I have been feeling (for basically… View Post

Rainy Day Outfit

Rainy days are becoming my new favorite. I actually avoided buying a rain jacket for the past two years because I was convinced the second I purchased a jacket it would never rain again (yes I know it’s a little crazy). I broke down a couple weeks ago and purchased my new rain jacket, something about walking Stanley in the… View Post

Best Fall Dress

Remember this post? Well, the items I purchased did not disappoint! I have spent the weekend packing up all my summer items and putting together a pile of clothing to donate with the start of the new season. Does anyone else do this?
