Tips For Getting More Sleep, From One Insomniac To Another 💤

"I'm so tired." Raise your hand if you say this either to yourself or to someone around you at least one day a week. 🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️

To some people, sleep comes easily. Ethan, for example, is out like a light almost as soon as his golden locks touch the pillow. He and sleep are the best of friends and can catch up anytime, anywhere.

HelloFresh Delivers - In More Ways Than One!

Sometimes moms come up with some great ideas, and this was one of them.

A few months back my loving and resourceful mother suggested to me and Ethan that we look into food delivery services so that we could be more fiscally responsible - rather than eating out almost every night. Also because it’s healthier for you and, as we’d soon discover, more fun and convenient than trying to shop for groceries and cooking our own food from scratch.

An SOS To All Morning People

I think there is this misconception that people who showcase a large portion of their life on the internet (i.e. Bloggers, "Instagram Girls", YouTubers, Beauty Gurus, and the like) have it all figured out. Their content often includes advice and clever how-tos that make it seem like they glide through life with ease. But while much of this might be true, I believe it's important to showcase the moments where Bloggers, like myself, and others, need a little help, too.

We're Plant Parents! ☘️🌿🍃🎍🌵🌳🌱

Ethan and I are both the all-or-nothing type. So, just over a week ago when I said that I thought our living space could use a plant or two, we both took that as an excuse to start a full-on garden. No, seriously. 🙃 We are now the proud Plant Parents to 15 new plant friends. I love each and every one of them for their beauty, and the clean air and peace that they bring to our space. Plus, now I feel very needed. Owning plants is a very fun and rewarding hobby and community that I’m so glad to now be apart of.

Where I'm At

Holy shiz, how is it nearly March?

I’ve seen a lot of other bloggers that I follow - and for the record, I follow a quite a few - do cheeky little blog posts just updating their readers about their life and what’s to come. I’ve done a few heavier, reflective life updates in the past, but never have I just sat down and written as if I were speaking to a friend about what’s up. So, here I am. 💁🏼‍♀️

10 Planners For Getting Your Life Together

Like many other multi-tasking, Type-A folks out there, I love a good planner. It doesn’t help that I have a burning passion for stationary alone, but when you combine stationary with my love of organization, it’s easy to see why a well-filled-out planner tops my list of life’s simple pleasures. Right now, I’m on a pretty intense self-improvement kick and I’ve been spending some serious time researching journals and planners to help me get where I want to go more effectively along the way. So, why not share some of my discoveries with you all? Hopefully, you’ll find the planner of your dreams, too.

I'm Detoxing - Week One

I'm detoxing and it sucks. Seriously, it sucks. Don't worry, I'm not detoxing from drugs, just donuts… For the last week or so, I've been on a no sugary foods diet. I have not eaten or drank one sugary thing since last Monday and I am both suffering and supremely proud of myself simultaneously.

Tidying My Closet With Marie Kondo

I’m usually pretty late to the party when it comes to trends of any kind - the last to read, buy, or watch just about anything. But I’m proud to feel apart of the crowd this time around because I finished “Tidying Up With Marie Condo” on Netflix earlier this week and many people are starting and finishing the series right along with me.

100 Questions No One Ever Asks

It’s been a while since I’ve sat down and shared a few things about myself for you all to enjoy. I love being really transparent and open and I truly get a kick out of answering some of the silly questions that linger around in the cybersphere waiting to be answered. So I thought on this fine evening, I’d sit down and take part in the 100 Questions Tag that has gone around the internet one or two times.

Boyfriend Picks My Outfits For a Week - Part 1

I’m so excited for this week’s post series because it’s my first request! Someone I work with had the brilliant idea of having Ethan, my sweet boyfriend, choose my outfits every day for a week. Knowing Ethan’s creative nature and do-anything attitude, I knew this was an amazing idea from the get-go.

I Believe in the Power of Setting Goals for Yourself. What About You?

I believe in New Year’s Resolutions. I believe in fresh starts and new beginnings. One year has passed and no matter how wonderful it was, there were always lessons to be learned along the way. When a new year is upon us, I always take a solid look at my life, my attitudes, and my behaviors and think about what things I’d like to leave in the old year for the good of the order. I make promises to myself to change things that I don’t like or that I don’t think suit me and my life anymore - and I when I make promises, I make damn sure to keep them.

Dear 2018, It's Been Real. K. Thx. Bai.

I say a lot of things in my day-to-day life - most of them completely true. Sometimes I exaggerate, sometimes I gloss over the nitty-gritty, but don’t we all? Where I’m going with this is that I wanted to make sure you all know that each and every word I leave here for you to read is as true as can be said, when it’s said.

I Might Be 25, But On My Birthday I Felt 16 Again.

I’ve lived 25 long years. I can’t believe it.

I’ve never been one to think on my birthday too much, but for some reason, this birthday has really got me taking a deeper look into my life. I can’t believe that I’ve lived a quarter of a century. I honestly feel old - I know everyone says that, but for me, I officially can say it’s true.

25 Things I Should Have Learned By 25, But Haven't

Oh my god, it's my birthday. And I'm a quarter of a century old. I'm so calling BS on this.

Once you hit your mid-twenties, aren't you supposed to be wiser and more mature? Each day I wake up and still feel like a teenager or younger! I still make the same mistakes that I've been making my entire life.

Maybe, This Time, Popular Opinion is Right.

I’ve never been one for fads. I know they pass and I have very little interest in being a follower. Especially when the fad goes against my very being. Like gaucho pants… I haven’t a clue who thought those were a good idea, but the thought of them still haunt me to this day. They just go to show that popular opinion is NOT always correct.

Time Away in Tenerife

A few years back I needed some space to think - that happens with me from time to time.

Back then I was living abroad and had the finances and freedom to jet-set at a moment’s notice, I thought what better way to clear my head than a cheeky wee beach holiday? So, that’s exactly what I had in mind when I booked a week’s vacation on the island of Tenerife, in the Canary Islands.
