• My 5 Favorite Go-To Spotify Playlists

    Hey everyone! I hope you’re having a good week. Winter is definitely on it’s way… it’s supposed to get down to 32 this week. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t like a chill in the air and snowfall, but I also love the fall. So, I enjoy all the seasons for their individual beauty. This last year, I became hooked on Spotify. Don’t get me wrong, I still like Pandora and iTunes, but Spotify is definitely up there. Over the last year, I’ve saved many playlists for different days, moods and even seasons. Today, I thought I’d share my top 5 favorite Spotify playlists. 1. Have a Great…

  • Knowing Your Worth + Speaking Up

    Blogging has taught me many things – two of those things being knowing your worth and speaking up for yourself. Many times, we don’t speak up for ourselves or speak up for what we know we deserve. Recently, I had a blogging experience with a brand that opened my eyes to knowing my worth and speaking up for what I believe in (especially with blogging). I will not name the brand, but to put it lightly, they took advantage of me and my work. They wanted me to talk about about their new collection and I agreed, because experience is a good thing to have. However, after I posted my…

  • 10 Simple and Easy Ways to Spread Kindness

    Today, I want to focus on something I find very important  – kindness. It’s so simple, yet so powerful. I’ve talked about the importance of kindness plenty of times on my blog, but today, I want to focus on ways we can spread kindness.

But I would be lying if I told you I wasn’t excited for fall, the crisp leaves and the cool air. Don’t get me wrong – I still love summer just as much. Any Nicholas Sparks fans out there?!

  • Nic Answers Questions About Me

    Hello, everyone! I hope you’re all having a great start to your day and enjoying the summer weather. Soak it in, ladies and gents… “halloween costume ideas” is already trending on Pinterest. About a year ago, I read a blog on Simply Nicole (one of my favorite bloggers) and she had her husband answer random questions about her. She wrote down what he said and added her own commentary. I thought it was such a fun idea, and decided (almost a year later) to do that with Nic. I found some questions online and used some of hers, and asked them to Nic and wrote down his answers and my…
