Hello, 2019!

2019 has arrived! Based off social media, it seems like everyone is ready to celebrate their efforts of last year, and start working on their 2019 goals. It’s been nice to see everyone embracing change and positivity for the new year, now we’ll just have to wait and see if that lasts. 😉 Last year…

2018 in Review

Every year it feels like time is moving faster, and 2018 was no exception. After a rather crazy 2017, it seems like 2018 just began, and like that, it’s over! This may have been the faster year yet, but also a really productive one. Last year, I  laid the foundation to embrace change and vulnerability…

Wrapped in Red

Four days till Christmas, how in the hell did that happen? As we know, presents have been purchased are wrapped, but when it comes to other holiday actives, I’m coming up a bit short. Everyone usually has at least one holiday party to go to, whether you’re hosting one, heading to a friend’s, or going…

All Wrapped Up

Under a week till Christmas, where did the time go? Last week I  shared my gift guide and as promised, today’s post features my all time favorite part of gifting, the wrapping! Choosing my wrapping paper theme is year is a serious highlight of my holiday season and I’ve come to learn that a lot…

Gifted: Holiday Gift Guide 2018

A personal favorite post from last year was my holiday gift guide! I  loved sharing what I  was giving last year and the feedback, so I’ve decided to play Santa Claus once again and return with another gift guide for this year! Although Christmas gift shopping might make my wallet bleed, the idea of finding…

Strike a Cord

We’re practically a week into November which means we’re in fall’s peak season. All the leaves have changed, the jack-o-lanterns and cobwebs have been put away, and we’re snowballing into Thanksgiving! It seems like one of the biggest trends this year is corduroy. I  used to think corduroy’s were a bit too traditional, revered for…

Red-y for Fall

The Instagram feeds are clogged with pumpkins, the leaves are changing and Chicago went from 82 to 38 overnight, which only means one thing… fall is fully flourishing and I’ve been ready for it, or should I say… RED-y for it. Red has never been my color, but I’m trying to change that this year….

Out & About

2018 is proving to be quite overwhelming, wouldn’t you say? It’s been a pretty heavy year full of social and political issues rising to the surface on what seems like a daily basis, I mean, we’re living in a time where Colton is the next Bachelor! Jokes aside, in times like this, its sometimes nice…

Dropping a Bomb(er)

It starting to feel a lot like fall, and thank the LORD! Chicago isn’t exactly covered in fall foliage but a consistent drop in temperatures is at least allowing me to wear jeans and boots on the regular. With the new season in full effect, I’ve decided to try and elevate my fall looks more…

Game of Confidence

If you’re on social media as much as I am, you’ve probably noticed an uptick in postings of “glow ups”. Glow ups essentially refer to the when you’ve gone from an ugly duckling to extremely attractive. The ideas of glow ups brings me back to my post about remembering what we’ve gone through as opposed to…
