The Monday Motivator | On Being Present

August 27, 2018

The Monday Motivator is a series meant to motivate, encourage, inspire and provide advice on real life stuff.*

Be present. Who would've thought this would become a rule we struggle to follow?

It shouldn't be so difficult to be present, but thanks to the distractions of cell phones and social media, it's easy to remove ourselves from the current moment. But newsflash: not being present is not only hurting people around you, but it is ultimately hurting yourself.

Old Navy Fall Wish List

August 23, 2018

Alright, I'm officially getting internally giddy for fall and two things are contributing to that feeling: all of the new fall fashion in stores AND chocolate covered taffy apples now being available at my local candy store.

As much as I love summer, I can't help it- thoughts of fall make me SO excited. There's just something about throwing on a comfy sweater, drinking hot chocolate and reading a good book that speaks to me.

Although I plan to soak up these last weeks of summer, shopping and planning for fall outfits is a way I can keep myself in both universes. Old Navy has released some of their new pieces for fall and I'm LOVING what I'm seeing! For today's post, I created a wish list of the items I'm eyeing (and dying to get!) for the upcoming change of seasons.

The Monday Motivator | Telling Self-Doubt to Shut Up

August 20, 2018

Happy Monday! After a truly amazing response to last month's post, A Note On Being True to Yourself, I was feeling so inspired to start up a new series on the blog. The Monday Motivator will feature a new post on Mondays that is meant to motivate, encourage, inspire and provide advice on real life stuff.

A lot of the responses I received from last month's post were "I really needed this." I want The Monday Motivator to be exactly what you (and I!) need each week. We all know Mondays are rough; but if we start off the week on a good note, we can feel motivated to get through it together. I hope you'll join me every Monday with a strong cup of coffee and an open mind as I address topics that I personally feel can help us all feel stronger.

How to Take a Jumpsuit From Day to Night

August 10, 2018

In case you missed it, I was freaking out last week when I found these amazing jumpsuits at Walmart for only $16! They're super soft and flattering and I may or may not have bought all five colors. (oops)

If you're like me and have a pear-shaped figure, jumpsuits (and rompers) are ROUGH. I feel like I try on a million before finding one that finally looks good. If it's not too tight in the front, it's too loose on the top, etc. etc. etc. all the way home. So per usual, I tried on these jumpsuits with ZERO faith that they would work, but surprisingly, they did! Which is more of a reason to get lots of colors because it's not everyday I get this lucky in the jumpsuit department.
