Outfit Details: Capri Yoga Pants | Love Your Melon Tank Top | NIKE Dri-Fit Sports Bra Happy Tuesday everyone!! Today I spent my day at Lakeshore Yoga, here in Grand Haven to try out a type of yoga I’ve never done before – aerial yoga. I was so excited as we drove to the studio and after watching videos online I was ready to get in shape and be soaring above the ground. I worked with Carey, who answered a lot of my questions, and made me feel right at home. After showing me around the facility and talking with […]

  I’ve already broken some of my 2018 resolutions/goals this year. And like I said before (and I’m about to say it again for the people in the back) that is okay!!

So when planning what I wanted to post this week, I thought I would take today as an opportunity to spread some positivity and motivation for you guys.

Time Management + Super Cute Planners For 2018

If you’ve followed along with my blog for a while, you will know that I am obsessed with my agenda. I have the “beach and bae” print from Lilly Pulitzer.  Sadly it’s sold out basically everywhere. The link on my About Me page might work if they restock. (Fingers crossed, because it’s seriously adorable and makes me crave days on the water!!) “There is only one time more valuable than time. And that is who we spend it on.” I completely agree with this quote, but I would also say that it is how we spend our time that is also […]

Grand Haven Lighthouse And South Pier In The Winter

What a day! *insert heart eye emoji* Tuesday’s are now my “content creation day,” as my schedule got switched around very last minute and now my class is later in the day. (This frees up my morning/mid afternoon.) So today, I spent that time adventuring around on frozen Lake Michigan and Grand Haven’s State Park beach. It’s an unusually “warm” day in Michigan, meaning that it’s almost 40° out!  We hiked for a while and made it to the pier which we explored more of. Outfit Details: Knit Green Sweater (similar) | The North Face Coat | Navy Leggings (similar) | […]

An Honest Talk About Eating Habits

Today’s blog post was not going to be about this. While it was going to be health related, after stopping at the grocery store with my mom and spontaneously buying a cookie from the delicious Monica’s Gourmet Cookies (the signature chocolate chip to be exact) I realized that my eating habits have changed. And that it’s actually in a good way. Because honestly, I’m not as in shape as I was last year. Last year, I had way more dance classes and went to the gym multiple times a week. I made more conscious choices about what I put into my body […]

Winter Accessories You Need This January

I love the song Baby It’s Cold Outside. Quite truthfully, it’s probably my favorite Christmas song. But this cold is slowly killing me. Since we moved a year ago, we still have a lot of boxes in our garages, so while there should be room for my parents cars and mine, my poor Lucy (yes, we named my car) has been freezing in our driveway each night. Let me tell you, scraping off your car at 6:30 am for work is quite the wake up call. We’ve gotten more snow everyday since the 23rd. Let’s calm down now lake effect. […]

Hello 2018 – Let The Adventure Begin

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I have a good feeling about 2018. Last year was full of changes and I feel like I’ve grown so much from everything that was thrown at me. The good, the bad, and the ugly. But now, as I sit here and write this, I can’t help but feel a little giddy for the upcoming year. I’ve got big plans and I cannot wait to see them in action. I’ve always been a resolution-kinda girl. In middle school and high school, each New Years Eve I would write out my resolutions. I would check off and cross […]

HAPPY NEW YEARS EVE!! As we get ready to pop the champagne and toast to the new year I wanted to do a little run down of some of my favorite beauty related products from 2017. But before that…. I get to be sappy. Just for like a couple seconds. Okay, so seriously, although the blog isn’t a full year old yet, I am so incredibly blessed to have the support system that I do. What started in my dorm room (s/o to 7th floor Stanley Hall) has really grown into a website that I’m hoping inspires and excites my […]
