Weighing My Options

Did anyone else have an existential crisis the day after Christmas? No? Just me… Cool. After waking up and “trying” to get in a workout, I say trying because it was a hot mess, I gave up after 10mins and took a shower. I then sat on the bed once my fiancΓ© woke up and…

Take Me (Back) to Paris

Call me a cliche but I could binge watch Emily in Paris for the rest of my life. Sure, it’s a happy-go-lucky show full of its unrealistic outcomes, not to mention over the top outfits, but it made me smile for the duration of the 10 episodes I binge watched in one day. It also…

Weekend Getaway to the Mile High City

So much has been going on where do I start?! Last weekend my boyfriend and I flew to Denver for his cousins funeral. We left Friday morning, got in that afternoon, and then the funeral would be Saturday morning with us leaving to fly home that night. We made the most of the trip while…

Lent Check-In / No Alcohol

It’s been 28 days since Lent started and 32 since my last drink! That’s right. This is the longest in my drinking years I have gone without a drop of alcohol. And you know what? I feel fine. I feel good actually. Every Friday my boyfriend and I (still) go to Cooper’s Hawk Restaurant &…

Week 1 Check In – without Alcohol

It has been one week since I have given up alcohol for lent! I honestly don’t feel any different! Going 7 whole days without alcohol was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be. I didn’t wake up and immediately feel clearer or have an orb of light shooting out of me…

I’m Giving Up Alcohol for Lent

I was raised Catholic and attended Catholic school from kindergarten through 4th grade. I joke that “I did my time” when people ask me why I don’t go to Church on Sundays. Sometimes I’ll even throw out a “Jesus is with me always”! The other day I read an article titledΒ What Happens to Your Body…

My Weight Loss Journey

When I was little I was always told to “finish my food” before I could leave the table. When I was in high school and my first boyfriend broke up with me my dad offered to take me out to eat, whatever I wanted (picture Portillos chocolate cake shake, bacon cheeseburger, and large cheese fries).…

January was a Tough Year but We Made It!

What can I possibly say about the first 31 days of 2019 other than BURRR…. The beginning of the month started off great! I had a 9 day countdown until I flew to Ft. Myers in Florida to see my boyfriends mom for 5 days before driving over to Ft. Lauderdale to vacation for another…

No More FOMO

I have this fire burning inside of me. It’s telling me that “It’s okay to not be okay”. What I mean by that is, it’s okay to not have it all together. One of the reasons I started my blog was to show that it’s okay to be a work in progress and that yes,…

My On-the-Go Skincare Savior

I’m always on the go! From 6am-9pm you’ll constantly catch me running around whether it’s working all day downtown or working out with my trainer! Some nights I switch it up and take a Pilates class. The last thing I need is a pimple popping up and ruining my day! I don’t usually have time…
