My birthday is coming up next Wednesday! ¬†I feel so blessed and that I don’t need any gifts… but it’s just natural to have a couple fun things in the back of your mind that you would want to splurge on ūüėČ

1. I could watch HGTV all day! I’ve bought the past couple month’s HGTV magazines and would love to have a subscription for monthly inspiration.

2. I’ve had my eye on this bracelet for a while. ¬†One of my favorite bloggers, Katey McFarlan of Chronicles Of Frivolity, has this bracelet with Phil 4:6 engraved on it, and I would love to have that on my wrist as a daily reminder.

3. Save all the dogs! Need I say more?! and the net proceeds of this tee are given to a different rescue or shelter each month!

4. If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that my sweet boyfriend got me some new cacti and an aloe plant for my apartment. ¬†I’m planning on getting these gold pots for the 3 cacti.

5. This bracelet is a great deal!

6. This print, inspired by Parks and Rec, would look perfect in my kitchen.

7. Long live snail mail! This tray would be fitting for an entry way table or an office.

What is on the wish list in the back of your mind?

Another month, another list of favorites…

1. Jennifer Hudson Carpool Karaoke: From The Late Late Show with James Corden. ¬†This is hysterical! ¬†I have had this playing on repeat like it is a single. ¬†I wish I could hang out with them ūüėČ

2. Half Up Knot Hair Tutorial: The perfect combo of romantic and simple. ¬†I don’t like to put a ton of work into doing my hair, but need to branch out a bit. ¬†I’m gonna have to try this!

3. Vegan Leather Tote: Looks similar to a very popular Rebecca Minkoff bag, but vegan!  Love!

4. Kendra Scott Abra Double Band Ring: I have mixed feelings about Kendra Scott jewelry. ¬†Some I like, but I feel it has been VERY overdone in the blogging community. ¬†This ring, however, I haven’t seen too much of and I like that it can be both a statement ring, and a dainty detail.

5. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: I cannot recommend this show enough. ¬†It is hilarious‚Ķquirky humor + 90s references and I’m sold. ¬†Go watch it NOW!

6. The Honest Company Multi-Surface Cleaner: Over the past few years I have worked on doing a complete overhaul of all my beauty and cleaning products to switch to cruelty free products.  I am very passionate about protecting and rescuing animals.  The Honest Company products are not only cruelty free, but also non-toxic and safe.  This multi-surface cleaner has the scent of white grapefruit and makes it so much easier to do spring cleaning.  It fills your home with a wonderful aroma!

I hope you’ll check some of these out!

I remember growing up getting a new “Easter outfit” every year, but as I got older, this tradition was broken. ¬†I decided to bring it back this year, and got myself some new Easter digs! (I will have to share after Easter!) ¬†I was drawn to the typical pastels and florals, as well as some sparkly details.

Here are some other potential Easter looks!

Cinderella

March 30, 2015 — Leave a comment

I’m basically a little girl trapped in a 20-something’s body. ¬†I am currently drinking pink lemonade and have High School Musical playing in the background. I always check out the little girl’s shoe section at Target AND have purchased some. I’ve seen the new Cinderella movie twice now‚Ķ.and will probably go again soon!

The new Cinderella movie is stunning…between the art direction, the costumes, the moment the Prince and Ella meet…ahh, *heart flutters!*  The Prince and Ella are b-e-a-utiful!

Actress, Lily James, had a few of her own Cinderella moments while on the red carpet at the Cinderella premieres.  I am kind of obsessed with these looks.  Light, romantic makeup and hair, shimmering gowns, and magical accessories.  Straight up perfection!

Favorite Things March 2015

These are a few of my favorite thingsss…

These are a few tried and true favorites, as well as some items I’ve had my eye on for a while!

1. Trader Joe’s Fireworks Chocolate: Baby you’re a firework!¬†I got this as a treat for my guy and I on Valentines Day, mostly based on the packaging. I have since bought like 10 of these bars. It’s a mix of dark chocolate, hot spice, salt, and pop rocks. So weird, but so good. Also, it is quite entertaining to give some to an unsuspecting person and watch their reaction as the pop rocks kick in!

2. Stella and Dot Rebel Pendant: I have had this necklace for about two years, and it is such an easy piece to wear. Throw it on by itself or layer it…looks great either way. I have the gold and silver, but get much more wear out of the gold.

3. Asos Dress: It’s currently on sale! This would be a great fall to winter to spring transition piece. Dress it up with heels and a statement necklace, or dress it down with a chunky, long cardigan and ankle boots.

4. Anthropologie Euclidean Pendant: I wish I had somewhere to put this! Love that it is a solid enough to draw the eye to, but is airy and delicate at the same time.

5. I Just Want To Drink Coffee T-shirt: This is my life. On my birthday wish-list.

6. Surf Waiting Painting: Beautiful sea glass colors and serene subject. I could stare at this all day, especially during Michigan winters.

7. T-Swizzle, Style: Okay, first of all, I am so glad that she transitioned to pop.  Second, the guy has two different colored eyes. Stunning! Third, this song reminds me of a love from summers passed. Takes me back to butterflies, high school, and gets me pretty psyched for this upcoming summer.  I could listen to this all day.

What are some of your current favorites?

Up & Running

February 23, 2014 — Leave a comment

All of my posts so far have introductions referring to my surgeries, but that’s my life right now! ¬†Trust me, I can’t wait for it to be done either!

I have known for years that I would need these foot surgeries, so at a certain point I decided to push through workouts with some slightly worn out running shoes. ¬†I didn’t want to buy new ones that might not fit comfortably after the surgery adjustments.

You better believe that since completing the surgeries, I’ve been scoping some out!

Loving all of the bright color combos…

Saucony Womens Guide 7 Running Fit

Dual Fusion 2.0 Nike Nordstrom

Nike Womens LunarEclipse+3 Dicks SG

Gel DS Racer10 Asics Nordstrom
