Why I Shut Down the Comment Section

The vast majority of people reading this probably didn’t notice, but I had to turn off the comment section of my blog. While it’s extremely disappointing, it was something that I felt like I had to do for a little bit for my mental health. I have been blogging for coming up on ten years….


Workout Accountability

I LOVE to workout. I never thought I’d be that kind of person who’d enjoy going to the gym, but after starting my fitness journey about two years ago, I haven’t looked back. There have been some great moments and the occasional “valleys” of success. Overall though, it’s been an upward trend. For a myriad…


Dancing Queen

I just saw the Mamma Mia sequel last week. I was so looking forward to seeing it, but hadn’t really had time to go to the movie theater. I finally had a chance and, ugh, it was so good. It was super cheesy (way cheesier than the first one I thought) and at first, it grated…


Skirt + Blouse Combo

So I always have the hardest time figuring out the right skirt and blouse combinations. It’s probably why I usually opt for jeans or a dress. So much easier to find proportions that fit my body (smaller waist, larger chest). Even though skirts and tops are easier to buy two separate sizes, I find that…

I still can’t be a hermit (although I’ve considered…


How to Handle Things Being Really, Really Good

Have you ever gotten a sore throat and then promised yourself that you would never take swallowing for granted ever again? But a week after the illness passes, you go right back to forgetting? It’s really easy to note when things in life aren’t going as swimmingly as we’d like and usually it requires some…


Random Things I’m Into Right Now

… and my striped shirt, again. By now you know my love for this striped shirt runs deep. I think it’s the ~perfect~ shirt and I wear it at least once a week. If I’m not actually traveling in it, it’s in my suitcase. It is a staple in my closet and I don’t see…
