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...

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...

Best Plants to Liven Up a Low-Light Office Space

Spring has sprung, but that's hardly a condolence to those of us who spend most of our time indoors for the 9-5. During the early weeks of Spring, those crucial hours are the ones where the sun shines the most, the air feels warmest, and the colors are...

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...

How to Revamp Your Closet Without Spending a Penny

Okay. So shopping is my thing. You know it, I know it, my dad knows it, EVERYONE knows it. I love refreshing my closet or adding new accessories to my rotation, especially during season changes. Unfortunately, I also fall out of love with a lot of pieces in my closet....

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...

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

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...
