Apartment Decor

Monday, April 27, 2020

Good morning everyone and happy Monday! Today I am sharing with you some of the miscellaneous things I have decorated my apartment with. It is still a work in progress, and far from complete, but decorating has been so much fun.

I hope everyone is still healthy and safe!

My Comfy Dress

Monday, April 20, 2020

Good morning guys! I am excited to be back again with a new outfit today. I was a little dubious when I ordered this dress if I would like it or not, but I love it! It is super comfy which, let's be real, is all we are wearing right now. I recommend going one size up from your regular size to get the relaxed fit.

I hope you are all staying healthy and safe right now! I feel like we have been seeing more and more good news in terms of the virus and I hope this continues to be the case. I am minimizing how much I read the news and instead trying to focus on my fun hobbies to occupy my time.

All About Sneakers

Tuesday, April 14, 2020

Hey all you cool cats and kittens! Today I wanted to share with you one of my favorite types of shoes. I wear sneakers *basically* every day that I am not required to wear nicer shoes. They are incredibly versatile, you can wear them with dresses, jeans, etc. 

I was drooling over the Golden Goose sneakers linked above, but if I am being honest I'll never be able to justify spending that money on them haha. The Superga sneakers are my usual go-to pair and so far have been insanely easy to clean. I also love the Veja sneakers. I stumbled across them when I read an article about Meghan Markle wearing them to an event. 

Hope everyone is continuing to stay safe and healthy!

How I've Been Keeping Busy

Thursday, April 9, 2020


Needlepointing has been so much fun! I started this hobby last year because I was looking for something for stress relief. I purchased this key-chain kit back in November and never started it, so this was the perfect opportunity to start. Below is the pillow kit I just purchased which I cannot wait to finish. I highly recommend checking out Etsy for kits or seeing if any local places have an online shop.

I purchased the pillow kit to go on my couch in the living room. It came with all of the supplies to completely finish it, so I will share an update when it is done!


I love working out because it makes a huge difference with some health issues that I have and not being able to go to my studio has been really hard. My studio though has been absolutely amazing and created a Facebook group to stream classes live every day.  They have been absolutely phenomenal workouts and even if you do not have some sort of workout studio, there are tons of YouTube videos for free! I am doing a mix of my classes and walking/walking my dog every day.


I actually love cooking and meal prepping, so I have used this time to try some new recipes! This is probably the best macaroni and cheese I have ever had and it came out of a box. After following the directions on the box, I added a little cream cheese, shredded cheese, and parmisean. We topped with gluten free bread crumbs and put it in the oven on broil for between 5-10 minutes. It was SO SO good!


Some of you may have noticed the new logo (I love the new design!) it is simple and clean. I have been trying to use this time to blog more because I truly love it. It feels like I am writing in a diary or sharing my outfits with my girlfriends and I feel so thankful to have this time to spend on it.


Here's a list of the blogs I have been reading lately. Everyone has been so awesome at sharing cool things like ways to help people or better yourself during this time, and fun things like outfits etc. I have also been watching fun hair and makeup videos ha!

I don't know about you, but I don't enjoy reading the news. Even before this mess, I didn't enjoy it and instead I would spend mornings drinking coffee and reading my favorite blogs or listening to a podcast (love Chicks in the Office!). Now more than ever, I am reading my favorite blogs for some relief from the constant stream of bad news we are currently surrounded by. I hope my blog can be this outlet for you too.

With everything happening in the world, I have been trying to do any small thing I can to help. I have been staying at home, occasionally going out for a run or to walk my dog. I have been ordering to-go from local restaurants which has been so much fun to try new foods and help out. My favorite source of inspiration with everything has been https://www.carlytheprepster.com/. She has talked about at-home workouts, crafts, and has even made masks for hospitals! Later this week I will share some of what I have been doing to stay busy at home.

On a fun note, I have been expanding my work appropriate wardrobe and this is one of my favorite looks! I have worn these shoes NON-STOP and have even considered ordering a second pair because I know I will wear them out too soon 😅. If you are looking for any of the items worn, I have linked them above!
