Hi friends! I am starting something new on the blog – instead of mentioning my favorite books in my monthly favorites posts, I am going to create separate posts reviewing books I’ve recently read. If you’re a book lover like me, hopefully, this will give you some suggestions for what to read next.
Happy Tuesday, friends! We’re about a week away from Valentine’s Day, so I thought I would share some thoughtful and fun Valentine’s Day gift ideas for anyone in your life.
Have you ever taken the 5 Love Languages quiz? It ranks how you feel most loved based on five categories: words of affirmation, acts of service, receiving gifts, quality time, and physical touch. My number one is always words of affirmation, but I DO love to receive thoughtful gifts from people. It doesn’t have to be extravagant, just something that shows they’ve been paying attention. What about you? Are you big on gifts?
Whether you’re shopping for yourself, your Galentine, or need some ideas to send your significant other, here are my Valentine’s Day picks:
Dress (on sale!) | Shoes (I found these at Marshall’s- they’re an older version of the Kate Spade glitter pumps. These are almost identical.) | Earrings | Lipstick: Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in “Cruella“ | Nail polish: Essie Gel Couture in “Rock the Runway”
Confession: I like Valentine’s Day so much more when I’m single. I think it’s because I don’t have any expectations. There’s no pressure to make the perfect plans or give/get the perfect sentimental gift. In the past, I’ve made the mistake of thinking things should happen a certain way. We should go here and you should KNOW to get me this and you should be really impressed with what I get you and if all of that doesn’t happen as planned then we’re obviously doomed. Sound familiar to you?
Hi guys, how was your first month of the year? I spent most of January not knowing what day it was, so I’m a bit surprised it’s the end of the month already! Here are some of my January favorites:
Hi friends, I’m back with another round of Fitting Room Adventures! You all seem to like these posts and I do too! A couple of notes before we get started:READ THE POST
A couple of years ago I was in a dark place. I joined the gym just to do something positive for myself. At the time, my goal was to actually gain weight and get my appetite back. Little did I know, working out would become my saving grace. I was going to the gym almost every day and I loved it. I got into such a habit of going that it wasn’t even a thought or a question, it was just part of my routine! Not only did I physically transform but mentally too. My mood improved, I had more energy and I was proud of myself! I was.feeling.good.
