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 […]

Best Skincare of 2017

2017 was the year of skincare. I tried A TON of new products, played around with different routines, and figured out what worked and what doesn’t. Because of that, I wanted to summarize my absolute favorite products into one post where I lay it all out. Skincare isn’t easy and the same routine won’t work for everyone, but these are products that I love, that work on my skin, and that I would recommend to anyone. They are the best! Cleansers For each category I will try to choose one product… and I’m already off to a bad start because […]

Cranberry Mimosa- Favorite Holiday Cocktail

One of my favorite parts of the holidays are the mornings, when all the guys are on the couch watching football, and all the girls are in the kitchen making food, listening to Christmas music, and sipping cocktails.

Herbal Essences Bio Renew

If you read my “Favorite Hair Products” post then you probably saw how obsessed I am with the Smooth Collection shampoo and conditioner from Herbal Essences. I have literally used that stuff for as long as I can remember and I think it’s simply the best.

Old Navy Finds

When was the last time you’ve been into an Old Navy? I’ll admit that before a couple weeks ago, it had been a while for me. I have always loved their basics and thought they were really fairly priced, but lately I really think they’ve stepped up their game as far as keeping up with the trends while still staying true to their brand. Since I went about a month and a half ago, and I have been wearing the following items NON STOP, so I had to share! 1. Mid Rise Rockstar Jegging One of my friends who keeps […]

Yeti Cooler Ladies, men are weird. And they think things like coolers make good presents. I can’t understand it, as I’d rather have just about anything else… but hey, this isn’t about me. Yeti coolers are the best of the best and even though […]

Gift Guide No. 1: Gifts for Her!

I don’t want to brag, but I think I’m a pretty good gift giver. In my family it’s like a competition of whether or not you can think of a gift that someone would really want before they can even think of it themselves. Plus there is no better feeling than getting someone a gift that you know they are going to love and you just can’t wait for them to open! For my “gift guide for her” post I consulted several different women in my life to try to cover all my basis. These are some basic items that […]

Another year with an amazing guy, another excuse to escape to the mountains for a couple days for some quality time together.
