Rainy Day Playlist – 25 Songs For Rainy Weather

This weather typically makes we want to do absolutely nothing, but surprisingly I got a whole lot done today. I went to the eye doctors (my least favorite appointment), did a lot of errands, set up my editorial calendar, and did my homework. I’m feeling very accomplished right now. However, if I wasn’t doing that today, I would want to lounge around with a book and some music or binge some Netflix. Recently, I’ve been trying to put together playlists for every mood on Spotify and today I’ll be sharing some songs to add to your rainy day playlist. (Follow me […]

7 Of My Favorite Motivational Quotes

  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!! Seriously we are way too hard on ourselves and I touched on this a bit when I posted an honest little blurb about eating habits last week. 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. Because the world could always use a little bit more of those two […]

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 […]

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 […]

Favorite Christmas Memories

Okay first off, how cute was Nick and I way back when?? My family and I have been extremely lucky and fortunate, and for that I’m extremely grateful. All of my Christmas’s have been filled with family and fun memories. And today, I decided to just write and tell some quick little stories about some of my favorite Christmas memories. Where to begin, where to begin. Well, one year I asked for apple juice from Santa. Granted, I was very young and don’t remember too much about said present, but I do know that the big guy up North pulled […]

National Philanthropy Day – St. Jude | Love Your Melon – My Experiences + How You Can Get Involved

So I’ll be honest, I had no idea that the 15th was National Philanthropy Day until about 2 minutes ago. I had already written and edited a long style post for Thanksgiving and was planning on uploading that today, but I’m postponing that now until tomorrow. Instead, I wanted to take some time to talk about the amazing philanthropies I’ve been able to be a part of and give you ideas on how you can get involved with them as well. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital My heart is filled with so much love for St. Jude and respect and […]

Fall To Do List

Happy October 2nd!! It’s officially one month until my birthday (just figured I’d put that out there), and I’m so glad that the leaves are changing and the weather is starting to cool down. Yesterday, instead of falling victim to the Sunday Scaries, I organized my whole room (and closet), and prepared myself for the week. Just call me the #organizationqueen 👑. But more importantly than all of that boring stuff, yours truly began to decorate for Halloween and autumn! I picked up some small pumpkins from a little family-owned market stand on my way home from class last week, […]

Changing With The Seasons – Life Update

Over a month without posting. The blogging gods are definitely looking down and shaking their heads at me right now. But in all seriousness, I feel super bad about not posting anything for a while. Starting at a new college has been crazy and I’ve been joining clubs, doing clinical observations at my job shadow, working, and studying my butt off. (Dean’s list here I come!!) I’ve also been doing a lot of reflection and finding out who I really am. Just like the seasons and leaves are changing, so am I. So where better to start this life update […]

What We Would Tell Our Younger Selves

“Despite what your feelings may be telling you, the pain you’re experiencing may be a chapter in your life, but it will not be all there is to your life. Don’t let your thoughts confuse a chapter with the whole book.” – Brittney Moses   I decided to write a different piece for Abundance of Abby. I had so many different people send in stories and it was amazing to read all of their own perspectives. At one point, I had to stop taking everyones and save them for another day and post!! I hope this blog post touches you […]
