Quick Life Update

It has been a minute since I lasted posted a blog post so I wanted to share with you a quick update on where I have been. Long story short I have basically been traveling every week since July started and I finally am back home and needed some time to catch up on life. At the beginning of the month I went to D.C. for a couple of days for the 4th of July. Then the week after on July 11th I left for Martha's Vineyard with my sister, mom, and my sisters friend. We stayed until Sunday the 15th and had the BEST time. It was so much fun and I can't wait to share everything about the trip with you. Then once I got back from that trip I had two days at home and then I left for a conference in Phoenix with my sorority on July 18th and didn't get back until this past Sunday on July 15th. So I have been playing catch up the last few days trying to unpack and check some things off my to-do list. I am finally feeling rested and should be back to normal blog posts tomorrow. I have lost of fun posts coming your way! 

In other news my birthday is a week away which is crazy because I can't believe it is almost August. This summer is just going by so fast. Finally I dropped my camera and it broke (sad day) so I may not have a video to post for a little while in case you were wondering/looking for a video!
Here are a few photos in the mean time:

Birthday List 2018

Well I can't believe it but my birthday is already in about two weeks and then I will officially be the big 21! I have always loved celebrating my birthday, making plans, and coming up with a birthday list. I still make a birthday list to give my family an idea of what I want. Every year I feel like my list ends up having some type of theme to it and this year seems to be the year of workout clothes. Ever since I started taking Pure Barre classes I have a new obsession with cute workout clothes I can wear on the weekends. I pretty much live in athletic clothes on the weekends because I don't want to dress up when I do that all week for work. So today I am sharing with you my birthday list for this year! Don't worry I will be sharing lots of posts about my birthday including what items I get once I celebrate my birthday in August.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018

You probably have already heard all about the Nordstrom Anniversary sale because everyone and their mother has been posting about the sale. If you haven't though or forgot the sale starts today July 12th for Nordstrom card holders. This means if you have a Nordstrom credit card you can start shopping the sale today! This early access privilege goes all the way until July 19th. Then on July 20th the sale opens to the general public. I am a huge fan of Nordstrom. They always have what I am looking for, they offer free shipping, and the items always ship super quick. 

I can't say exactly everything the sale will have this year but I for sure have my eye on the Natori Feather Light Bra. This is my all time favorite bra and it always goes on sale. I am also looking for a Barefoot Dreams cardigan. My sister got one during the sale last year and I am praying it is one of the items that is on sale this year. Those are my two main items I am looking for but I am sure I will find tons of amazing deals on all kinds of fall apparel.  

You can also check out this Nordstrom Anniversary sale catalog that gives a sneak peek of some of the items that will be on sale starting today!  

If you shop the sale I would love to know what items you end up purchasing!

Life Update: I Am Headed To Martha's Vineyard

This is probably going to be the worlds shortest blog post for me but I just wanted to hop on here quick and let you know that I leave for a trip to Martha's Vineyard tomorrow morning and I will not be back until Sunday night. I am going with my sister, my mom, and my sisters close friend. I have not been to MV since I graduated high school myself so I can't wait to be back!!! With that being said I was finally on top of things for once and have blog posts that I pre-uploaded. So there will still be new blog posts up while I am away on vacation. I am taking this time away to have a mini break from blogging and I am not even brining my laptop on this trip. I love blogging but I think it is so important to take mini breaks so you don't get burned out. Anyways I will be back to posting on Sunday or Monday with lots of new exciting content. I will be sure to share all about my trip when I come back!

Six Reasons I Love Pure Barre

I have mentioned it a few times on the blog about my love for Pure Barre. I took my first class last summer in Hilton Head and I really liked it so I went as much as I could over the summer when I wasn't busy with work. The first class was definitely a challenge but in a good way. When I moved back home for the school year I knew I wanted to continue with it. Luckily there is a Pure Barre studio in Buffalo so I signed up for a membership this past fall. It isn't super close when I am away at college but I try to go 2-3 times a week when I am in school. I recently hit my 100th class milestone and I couldn't be more proud of myself for sticking with it. 

So today I wanted to share with you the reasons I love Pure Barre so much in case you have not tried it before, are thinking about trying it, or just love it as much as I do! In this post, I am simply going to share my love of the class. If y'all are interested I can do my fitness posts about my full workout routine and more specifics about the class. 


1. You Can Do The Class At Your Own Pace // I think my number one reason I love PB so much is each class can be modified to fit your needs. Whether you have an injury, are expecting, or have not worked out recently the moves can be adjusted so you still feel like you are getting a workout that is challenging but at your own level. When I got sick in December I didn't have a lot of energy but I was still able to go to Pure Barre I just did things differently. Maybe I would forget the weights, keep my leg lower or use the ball for my back just to name a few.

4th Of July In DC Travel Log

I spent 4th of July this year in D.C. with my sister for a few days. We decided to book the trip this past spring after my family staying in D.C. for Easter this year and had such a fun time. The 4th of July has always been one of my favorite holidays so I couldn't think of a better place to spend it than the capital. It was quite hot and busy at times but we had an awesome time. Today I am sharing a travel log of what we did in case you are looking for suggestions for your next trip to the city. I am going to start by answering the basic questions and then I am going to get into what we did each day! Let me know if you have any questions and feel free to leave any comments or suggestions you may have if going to D.C.  



The Basics 

1. How Did We Get There? We flew to the city because we only were there from Tuesday to Thursday so we wanted to be able to spend as much time in the city as we could without taking up too much time traveling. We flew JetBlue into the Ronald Regan Airport. We chose this airport because there was a direct subway line from the airport into the city.
