Spring Shopping Picks

Today I thought I would share some joy and bright colors with some of my favorite new spring arrivals from my favorite brands! I am loving all the bright colors and embroidery this spring. If you are interested in picking any of these items up now is the perfect time to do it as pretty much every retailer is running some type of sale. I would love to know what your favorite pieces are for this spring & summer.

Tv Shows I Would Recommend

I am sure everyone has been watching a bit more Netflix and Hulu these days. I always think it is interesting to see what other people enjoy watching. So today I am sharing my recommendations. These are shows I am currently watching or have previously watched. I would love to know what shows you are loving right now or shows I didn't include in this list that is a must see!

Current Shows I Am Watching: 

1. This Is Us // If you have not watched this you MUST start it. The way the episodes are written where they switch between past, present, and future is something I have never really seen in a TV show before but it makes it so interesting. 
2. Grey's Anatomy // I started watching this with my mom years ago and have watched it ever since. A few years ago I went back and watched it from the beginning because when I started watching it with her I hadn't seen the older seasons. It took me a long time because there are so many seasons but so worth it.

Favorite Loungewear Set

I hope everyone is hanging in there and finding some fun things to do at home! I thought this would be the perfect time to share this casual loungewear set with you. I got it after Christmas at Loft from the Lou & Grey line as I typically work from home a few days a week (even before coronavirus). I found myself needing more loungewear to wear around the house. This set is so comfortable I think everyone needs this! It is just so cozy. The top and bottom are sold separately so you can mix and match colors. If I was wearing this out and about I would pair it with a cute pair of white sneakers. 

I hope you enjoy the throwback mirror style pics because I don't have a tripod for my camera and I am not leaving my apartment much these days to take any pictures.

Five Fitness Classes To Do Inside

I will be the first to admit I hate working out inside. Before I joined a gym in high school I would try to do workout videos at home but I never felt as motivated as when I took a class and physically went to the gym. Not only am I more motivated to go when I am paying for the membership but I love working out in a class setting with others. With that said right now, that is not an option. So today I wanted to share five ideas for videos/classes you can do from home! A lot of these companies are offering subscription codes were you get a few months free.

Fifteen Things To Do Inside & Ways To Stay Positive

Hey everyone while things have been crazy for everyone and changes are happening all the time one thing I am excited about is having more time to blog and spend on improving my website! I always feel like I have too much other stuff going on that it is hard to get into a blogging routine. So I am taking this time while stuck inside to start back into blogging. While things have been so strange not interacting with anyone in person as I am working from home and live by myself I have been enjoying keeping up with other bloggers on social media. Things can definitely get pretty boarding so I wanted to share things that I am going to be doing over the next few weeks to stay productive and remain positive! A lot of people have been posting similar ideas but I wanted to share my ideas and give my input because you can never have too many ideas. I would also love to know what fun things you have been up to. 

Thought we could all use a beach photo just about now

Valentine's Day is this week so today I wanted to share some gift ideas to treat yourself or even for a friend! i tried to include some unique ideas including a candle making class my sister and I took after the holidays. It was so much fun I think it would be a great activity to do with someone.

Goals For 2020

I have to admit I am a sucker for feeling recharged in the New Year and making goals for the new year. I know a lot of people hate resolutions especially in today's world where everyone is always talking about things that are most likely not realistic. I like creating resolutions because I find it is a way to check in with myself and think about what things I want to focus on in the new year. Even if I don't accomplish everything it gives me more direction on what I want to make important for the year. This year I am going to try to be more specific with my goals and less general. I am hoping this will make things more realistic as to how I will accomplish them.

Currently Cooking This Week

I don't know about you but the holidays hit me hard this year with lots of sweet treats, meals out, and over eating. So I am trying to focus on eating less sugar and more clean food for right now. My goal is to try to stick to a Whole 30 breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I am not going to be super stick if I am going out to eat or have an occasional treat. After shopping this weekend I had no idea how hard it is to fully follow this meal plan. There are so many foods that have sugar I never even thought of like pasta sauce. I thought I would share the receipts I made for this week. I got most of them from the Whole Kitchen Sink website which has some amazing content on Whole 30. 

Breakfast: Sausage Tomato Egg Bake 
This is my least favorite recipe I made this week as it is pretty bland. I didn't add the basil but I included everything else. I used turkey sausage in the recipe but I think if I made this recipe again I would maybe use prosciutto or something smaller. Finally the shredded potato was not fully Whole 30 because it had some corn in it. 
Rating: 3 / 5

This Whole30 breakfast casserole is filled with sausage, tomato, basil and potatoes, and couldn't be easier to whip up for a Whole30 or Paleo breakfast meal prep recipe. With only a few simple ingredients and a bit of oven baking magic, you'll have a family friendly, gluten-free, and Whole30 egg bake, or be set for the week ahead! #whole30eggbake #whole30breakfastrecipes #whole30breakfastcasserole #paleobreakfast #glutenfreebreakfast #whole30sausagerecipes

2019 Recap & Updates

Hi, y'all it has been SO LONG since I have been on here but I am super excited to be back. I feel like so much has happened since I last posted a blog post. I had lots of good changes in 2019 but the blog just wasn't fitting into my daily schedule. I ended up getting a job a few months after graduation and moved to Dallas, TX! I am settled into this new chapter and am loving it. I have been missing sharing my tips, life, fashion and everything else here. I am excited and re energized to be back here with everyone. I thought the best way to catch you up with what I have been up to is by sharing my top moments of 2019!

1. Visited Niagara on The Lake

Saturday Shopping

I had the perfect summer weekend including going to the beach, watching a movie at the drive-in and playing golf! The weather was perfect and finally we had a weekend with no rain. I am ending the weekend with a fire and s'mores. My two favorite stores Lilly and Vineyard Vines have been coming out with some super cute new arrivals for the summer that I am in love with. Lilly came out with a new collection bringing back some older patterns and they are so dang cute. If you enjoy online browsing as much as I do then I think you will love this week's items!
