Learning to Live with Anxiety

I don't even know how to begin this. I guess I can start with what happened: while leaving work back one day in February I felt this horrible pinching/pressure in my chest. Figuring that it may just be my bag being too heavy, I shrugged it off and continued across the...

Holiday Hustle

The holidays are upon us! More than upon us...it's only five days until Christmas! *insert shocked emoji* Seriously this month is FLYING by for me. I've done so much and had so much fun, it hardly feels like I've been able to keep it all in one month. December is...

Road Trip Warriors

For as long as I can remember, I have camped every summer. According to my Dad, they took us camping even when we were so little we couldn’t remember. Even to this day I go camping annually with my family. The only difference now compared to when we were kids? The...

My August Bullet Journal Setup

  All my young life I struggled with pre-made planners. The lines were wide ruled, or the boxes weren't big enough, or the design was just plain boring. Most people don't give much thought into their planners. Unfortunately for my wallet, I am not one of those people....

Fave Finds Under $150 at the Nordstrom Sale

Ah, yes. The Nordstrom Half Annual Sale. Where hard earned money goes to be spent on things you don't need, but for some reason just have to have. Luckily I'm getting a little better at not blowing all my cash so quickly. While shopping the site, I was definitely...

Calming Down Before Breaking Down

When life gets you down, it's so easy to get sucked into your emotions. It's easy to panic, to retreat from friendships and family, to lose your cool and lash out and those around you. It's easy to get angry and blame it on your feelings later. But it also totally...
What I Loved in April

What I Loved in April

I cannot believe it is already MAY. This is crazy. This year is flying by, each day slipping through my fingers no matter how hard I hold on. It was a wonderfully warm month, though. And I was able to accomplish so much and get so much good out of it that I can look...

Coffee Talk – Catching Up

Good Morning everyone!   I've been MIA for far to long! I promise I'm trying harder to remember to blog. I always write it down in my planner to include it in my day but studying for a second portion of the CPA exam is already taking up most of my free time. I have...

Trend Alert : Slip-On Shoes

Hey Everyone! I apologize for being so dormant the past few weeks. It's been hard squeezing in any free time while I've been studying before I sit for the first section of the CPA exam next week! I've been spending almost all of my free time studying and sleeping. I...

February Challenge

February Challenge

My January goals didn't pan out the way I intended, so in February I'm choosing just a few goals that will be easier to follow and hopefully make me feel more accomplished. One thing I've always struggled with is spending. I am a certifiable shopaholic, 100%. Shopping...

For the Love of All That is Marble

For the Love of All That is Marble

Excuse me if I'm a little late on this, but I'm in LOVE with the marble trend going on right now. At first I couldn't get behind it - marble is so cold! But the more I saw it the more I loved it (Stockholm Syndrome, anyone?). Marble went from cold and uninviting to...

Decluttering with Emily Ley

Decluttering with Emily Ley

A new year brings the itch to start from scratch. Unfortunately, we bury ourselves in so much during the year that starting fresh is pretty darn difficult. Starting from scratch means cleaning, donating, throwing away anything we don't value. This process is a long...
