Ugh, it’s December so OF COURSE I am sick. I feel like it’s a tradition… every year around Christmastime, I get sick. Seriously, for as far back as I can remember, it happens. I remember one year when I was in elementary school, I spent Christmas Eve sitting in the ambulance bay at the children’s hospital, with my mom and grandmother, trying to breathe in the cool, fresh air until I could see the nurse for my steroid shot. I’ve been fighting off this bug since Friday night and I’ve actually created a nice little routine of healthy habits. I’m trying to hard to boost my immune system, rest up and feel better before the craziness of the holidays really hit. Plus… I may or may not still need to do a bit more Christmas shopping……

Hi hi. First things first – this outfit. There is seriously nothing better than cozying up in an oversized blanket scarf and wandering through a park in the crisp early-winter air. I love being cozy and there’s no better way to feel cozy than wrapping up in a huge blanket scarf. It’s been pretty chilly around here lately. I’ve definitely had layers and scarves on repeat. Lots of layered sweaters and cardigans, turtlenecks, leather jackets and jean jackets because freezing my ass off from my car to work / school just isn’t what I’m about. I’ve also been obsessed with this sweatshirt dress that I picked up from the GAP Factory Store. We’ve got this weird outdoor strip mall type thing and there hasn’t been any decent stores in it but lately, new stores have been…

So, hi. Hello hello, welcome back. I don’t know who I’m welcoming back, maybe it’s you… maybe it’s me… maybe it’s me welcoming us both back. As you can tell, I took a little blog break and it was definitely an impromptu one. I was struggling during Blogtober and I fell off near the end of the month, but I had planned on posting a few times a week… and to be honest, I never got around to it. Sometimes I’m really in it and other times, I get really discouraged when it comes to this blog. I find that I get hyper-focused on one certain type of posts and then I do everything that I can to keep them flowing but I get bored. I feel like I’m on autopilot. & I also start…

Hello and happy Friday! Yesterday marked my 1-year blogging anniversary… I cannot believe that I forgot about it / that I’ve had my bloggy for THIS LONG. I feel as though it will be a work in progress for quite some time now, but I am loving every single minute of it! It’s been seriously quiteeeee some time since I posted The Friday Five so I thought it was time to bring it back again. I have been LOVING fall lately, as you probably already know… so it’s only fitting that this Friday Five post be totally fall-themed. There’s so many things that I love about fall, so let’s get right to it. __________________________________ five fall closet staples: In the fall, I like to be cozy, comfortable and warm. There’s absolutely NOTHING that I dislike more than…

Hi hi. A little post about something that I’m slowly but surely getting better at allowing myself to take time to do. Self freakin’ care people. It is one of those things that is OH so important, but sometimes hard to do. You don’t want to give up your precious hours in a day to focus on you because maybe you feel guilty about ‘wasting time’ on yourself or maybe you just don’t know how to stop and do nothing for a while. There are so many ways that you can have a day full of self care, BUT be productive all at the same time. There are so many things that you can do for yourself, ways what you can practice self care and do things that are good for you too. practice self…
