The Importance of Lazy Days

Things have been pretty stressful during the week lately, so by the time the weekend rolls around I haven’t felt like doing much of anything. We just bought a Nintendo Switch a few weeks ago, and needless to say I’ve been spending the majority of my free time playing Mario Kart and Zelda! Not the most productive way to spend a day, but it’s definitely helping me relax. And to be completely honest, I’m not feeling guilty about being lazy at all. This year I’ve been putting a stronger focus on my mental health and it’s been working well so…

5 Movies I Can Watch Over and Over Again

I’m the type of person that when I really like something like a song, TV show, or movie, I can indulge in it over and over again without growing tired. My husband thinks I’m crazy because I can listen to the same seven songs on my Spotify playlist for a good week, but it’s just the way I’ve always been! Today I thought I’d share with you five movies that I love and can’t stop watching. Legally Blonde This one is a longtime favorite since childhood. No lie, I watched this movie every single day one summer. Every. Single. Day.…

Making the Shift Toward Mindful Spending

When I first started my blog, I felt a lot of pressure to constantly buy things. Whether it was the latest eyeshadow palette or a brand new outfit, it felt a necessity to have a fresh batch of purchases every month to keep the content on my blog interesting. Worst of all, I was buying products I knew I would hardly wear or use. I wear makeup maybe 2-3 times a week, but a peek at my collection would have you assume I wear it every day. And to top it all off, there are clothes in my closet I’ve never…

Reflecting on a Year of Marriage

This past weekend, my husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary. We kept it really low-key and enjoyed a much-needed staycation! We’ve never been the type of people to do anything extravagant for celebrations, and we made no exception for our anniversary. We’re both introverted homebodies, so he cooked us a lovely meal and we had a quiet night in. It was very “us.” As I think back on the past year, I remember the question we got asked the most at the beginning: “How’s married life?” My honest answer was: “Not much different than before!” Cam and I…

A Neutral DIY Fall Wreath

I don’t know if it’s because I’m crossing over into the 25-34 age group this month, but I’ve been feeling especially crafty lately! You know you’re getting older when you spend hours looking at DIY projects on Pinterest… Anywho, I’ve had a thing for wreaths lately. Our apartment doesn’t leave much space to decorate as much as I’d like, but wreaths are something everyone can have to add a little curb appeal. The first thing that used to pop in my mind when I thought of the word “wreath” was Christmas. Wreaths to me always meant circular evergreen foliage, but boy…
