That’s the same thing phrase that crossed my mind when my Ayurvedic doctor informed me I needed to cut out my daily caffeine fix a couple weeks ago. Coffee has literally been my obsession, how in the world was I going to get by without it. But my body needed a break. Keep reading to find out exactly why I gave it up.

Hello loves, Happy Monday! With Valentine’s day approaching in just a couple short days, I wanted to share with you the details from the romantic getaway I took Scott on for his birthday in January. We love exploring new places, especially when they bring us out to connect with nature, and what better place than the beautiful coastline of Big Sur. Continue reading “TRAVEL DIARIES: Big Sur”→
What we put on our bodies is just as important as what we put in them. I’m currently in midst of a major bathroom makeover, and not the home renovation kind. I’m talking the detoxifying- turning your bathroom “clean” kind. It absolutely blows my mind how many toxins and chemicals we come across on a day to day basis, many of which are in our everyday personal hygiene products. While I’ve always known this and have tried to jump on the natural bandwagon numerous times, I’ve always gotten intimidated and jumped right off. But with health concerns arising and serious questioning going on, I’ve decided to fully make the commitment over to the clean side. Continue reading “3 Ways to Detoxify Your Bathroom”→
I went my whole life thinking I would get married at 22, start having babies at 24, and be a full time mom for sure by the age of 30. Not only that, but I would also have my career figured out and a steady source of income to live a comfortable life. But oh how this could not be farther from the truth. Instead, I’ve been married and divorced once, changed jobs multiple times, changed my whole career choice, and have struggled to make ends meet with the constant change of income. And I’ve come to realize that I absolutely love the fact that I’ve changed my mind so many times. Continue reading “Why It’s Okay to Change Your Mind”→
Over the weekend, I went to one of my favorite local shops and fell in love with the cutest vintage boho hat. But when I flipped the tag to find that it was over $300, all thoughts of owning that hat went out the door. Giving it a closer look, I realized that I could totally make a similar hat for only a tiny fraction of the cost. I ran over to the fabric store, grabbed the supplies I needed, ordered a couple cheap hats, and got to work. Scroll through to find my simple DIY tutorial to make your own, as well as my recommendations for supplies. Happy crafting!
When I first started my blog, I had endless ideas flowing through my brain. Every item I bought or product I tried, I couldn’t wait to take photos for the blog and write about it. I made business cards and notepads, bought blogging planners, met with friends to share all my ideas, and couldn’t wait to dive in. But what I didn’t plan for was the hard stuff- the competition, the pressure, the lack of creativity, the need to “keep up.” With the movement that is happening on Instagram and in the blogging community right now, I can’t help but feel the need to speak up; to share my experience and my story, and the honest truth of why I haven’t been blogging as much as I used to.

Happy New Year y’all! I can’t believe we’re already one week in! Time starts to fly the older you get, I swear! Every year I say I will set resolutions in January, but I either never end up setting them or I write them down and never look at them again. This year, I committed to myself that I would come up with a list of things I want to hold myself accountable to this year. A list that is actually measurable, achievable, and will inspire me to be the best version of myself. Rather than calling them resolutions (because none of us need to resolve anything about ourselves), I’ve committed to setting my intentions for 2018.
