We’re Engaged!

HOW IT HAPPENED: For about four years now, Hayden and I have had the tradition of heading to Vail for our anniversary and enjoying a relaxing weekend together – this year was no different. We decided to head up on Friday morning and leave Sunday morning so that we would have two full days in the mountains. About a month before our weekend getaway, Hayden suggested that he make plans for us on Friday, and I make plans for us on Saturday. That sounded good enough to me! The night before we left we went to my parents house for […]

Float Therapy Experience

I wouldn’t consider myself a high-stress person, but everyone likes to unwind from time to time! When I need a break, I’ll go get my nails done or maybe even get a massage, but this weekend I experienced a new way to relax: float therapy. Vive Float Studio in Cherry Creek was nice enough to invite Hayden and I down to their studio to try out float therapy (though they offer many other rest and recovery services too) and we had a great time. I can’t even try to explain what float therapy is or all of its benefits, so […]

8 Inexpensive Ways to Transition Your Decor for Fall

It’s that time of year again people… hello FALL! The leaves are starting to turn, you’re breaking out your sweaters and booties, and there is a chill in the air (unless you’re in 90 degree Colorado, like me)! I LOVE fall and for the first time in my life I have an apartment with all of my own decor that I can adjust in anyway I want for the season. I officially switched up my decor about two weeks ago which may seem premature but I don’t even care! Today I’m going to show you guys some inexpensive swaps and […]

Madison Quinn Blog Turns One!

Its a blogiversary, y’all! Cred to Hayden for that one, but Madison Quinn Blog turns one year old today! Well, technically my first post went live on June 30th, but June 26th was the day I purchased MadisonQuinn.Blog and committed to one year of blogging. What a year it’s been! The Highs Blogging has easily been one of the best decisions I have made, for so many reasons. The first being that starting my blog was something I did entirely for myself. Of course I wanted to share my love for makeup and beauty with other women, but I really […]

APARTMENT TOUR: Living Room

The long awaited Apartment Tour post! Well, the living room at least. I had so much fun decorating this great room with the living room and kitchen (kitchen portion coming soon). You’ll see there is still some stuff that needs work, specifically the entertainment center, but otherwise this room is probably the most complete! I love decorating with black and white and wood, which just so happens to be the finishes on our apartment came with. I also LOVE this room because it gets so much natural light! Almost everything is linked below, if you have any other questions feel free […]

BBG Update

Wow! Four weeks of Kayla Itsines BBG program done! Half of you are thinking “cool, who cares” and the other half of you are thinking, “wow good job!” If you are anything like me, then you know this is a huge accomplishment! The program is 12 weeks so I’m only 1/3rd of the way through, but I still feel amazing and wanted to post an update! Some background: Growing up I never had to “work out” because I played so. many. sports. When I graduated from high school and my activity seriously decreased, I, of course, started putting on weight. […]

2018 Resolutions

I have never been a big resolution person. I usually just say I’m going to “work out more and eat healthier”, and then I make no effort towards actually doing so. This year, I genuinely took the time to think about what I want to achieve in the upcoming 12 months, and so much of it relates to this blog. I tried to think of things that are ambitious but possible with hard work, here is what I came up with: Post regularly on my blog When I get home from work and the gym I am totally exhausted and […]

Cozy Bed Guide

Let me go ahead and start this post by apologizing for being the worst blogger ever lately. It’s been a couple of weeks since my last post and I haven’t been as active on Instagram lately because I’ve been slightly distracted by my new auntie status- and let me just say, Ella Rose Gifford is the most perfect human ever!!! Exhibit A: Most of my spare time is spent rushing over to my sisters to snuggle this little one, but I am finally getting back into a routine now that she’s almost two weeks old! Onto the post! I totally […]

Bootay Bag Review

Can I just say that I love monthly subscriptions? I love them because I always forget that I have them and then I get them in the mail and its like a surprise present from myself, to myself. Well ladies, listen up because today I’m here to talk about BootayBag, a monthly subscription service you’re sure to love that is “changing the way women enjoy underwear”.   The Company:  You know I already love BootayBag because they are a Denver based company, but in addition to that they are a company I totally support because…. They give back- for every […]
