    Hi, everyone! Happy Fall and Happy October! The crisp fall air has already filled my heart with happiness, the beautiful colors of the leaves have left me speechless and the fall activities I’ve taken part in are already ones for the books. Ah fall, how I love you! Fit ‘n Classy, a fellow blogger, tagged me in her last Fall Tag blog post that was initially created by Ell Duclos, and I was more than excited to take part in it!

  • Don’t Let The World Change You

    Have any of you ever been in a great mood and then one person just acted really rudely to you and it changed your whole mood? Maybe someone honked at you because you didn’t hit the gas pedal the EXACT second the light turned green, or someone yelled at you because you weren’t walking fast enough for them. Or, maybe someone yelled at you because you were walking behind them and they didn’t like how close you were to them. That situation happened to me the other day. I was having a really nice day and decided to go for a run along the lake. It was a gorgeous day…

  • My Favorite Face Wash {For A Clean & Oil Free Look}

    Happy Monday, my friends! It’s a good day to have a good day, right? I wanted to tell you all about one of my all time FAVORITE face masks. It’s my go-to face mask for a fresh and oil free look. My face always feel so good after I use it and feels so clean and refreshed. I found this face wash over a year ago, and it’s been my #1 favorite face mask ever since – no other one has even come close.

  • The 10-10-10 Rule For Stress You NEED To Know

    Hey, everyone. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I’ll overthink little situations and get stressed over things I shouldn’t stress about. I  will realize this a few hours or days after I get stressed, and try to tell myself not to worry so much in the moment next time. This is where the 10-10-10 rules comes into play. I get Daily Shine texts as I mentioned in a previous blog, and I got one a few days ago that REALLY stood out to me. It started off by saying this: “A new study shows when we *think* we’ll be stressed (ex. those mid-commute worries) the floodgates open for stress,…

  • My Favorite Essential Oils

    Hey, everyone! I hope you’re doing well and enjoying the week so far. Lately, I’ve gotten REALLY into essential oils. It started a few weeks ago. I used to get migraines when I was younger, but luckily, they went away. However, they’ve started to come back here and there. A few weeks ago, I had one that was so bad and I couldn’t get out of bed for about an hour because I was in so much pain. Needless to say, I needed to start figuring out what could help, and I wanted to look at natural remedies for answers. My mom is really into essential oils, and always has…

  • Life Update & July Preview

    It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged, and I really REALLY don’t like that. Since I finished graduate school, there have been a number of changes (all good) and it’s just taking some time to get used to my new schedule and routine. I’m sure you all can relate to that. I’m not going to lie, I am not and have never been a fan of change. However, change is good and we all have to embrace it instead of fear it. Now that I finished grad school, I am working at a marketing/ad agency as a content & social media strategist and I am absolutely loving it. It’s a new…
