HAPPY MONDAY, FRIENDS! I know Mondays are the crap-fest day of the week, but CHEER UP! Mondays are new days just like any other, and they are fresh beginnings!!  Go into this week with a clear head & a positive heart! You got this!! Aaaaanyways – today I’m sharing some photos from our week on Topsail Island. I’m so in love with this part of North Carolina, and Kyle and I can’t wait to move here!! We’re beach…

Surf City, NC is the cutest little beach town EVER. Kyle and I want to move this way so bad, and every time we come, we find more things to do and we find even more love for this place! This past week we stayed on the beach with his family and we explored as far as our hearts desired, and it was nice because we were never more than a block from the beach.…

I love finding words of inspiration on Pinterest. Some might think it’s corny or whatever, but I feel like when I read things that are… “inspirational” they offer a ton of perspective. They make me think. And I love that. While I’m not totally one for “good vibes only” because I feel like we should be open and accepting of all emotion and feelings, good or bad – I do still love to bring the happy times…

I’m also trying my very hardest to be as sun-conscious as possible because since I’ve started taking Stelara, I have been SO sensitive and I burn literally in minutes. Which makes it a lot easier for me to worry about sun safety and limiting my exposure. (you can read about safe tans here!) Before all this, I had to be outside for hours and totally unprotected to burn at…

A Lifestyle Blog, by definition, is a digital content representation of its author’s everyday life and interests. A lifestyle blogger creates content inspired and curated from their personal interests and daily activities.  So why are so many “lifestyle bloggers” exactly the same? Seemingly reading from some sort of script. Writing in a way that seems fake, unnatural, and uncomfortable to read. I’ll be 100% honest – I draw inspiration from a million different places, people, and things.…

Planning for travel can be overwhelming especially as someone who completely loathes the planning process. But for bigger cities like Manhattan, Miami, Los Angeles, and Vegas, it’s important to put together a somewhat detailed plan of action, or itinerary, before embarking on your journey into the a bustling city with a million different things going on, constantly.  Every time I’ve ever visited the city, It’s been completely overwhelming and miserable. (Read: HERE) And if you have any sort of anxious…

HAPPY HUMP DAY! Lawd, has it been a week already. The holiday and staying home Tuesday really threw me off. But this weekend was great! I hope everyone else had a good Memorial Day Holiday and weekend. I’ve been seeing a lot of discussion over how to celebrate this holiday when the deaths of millions in the name of our freedom is not something to celebrate. But I feel the total opposite about it. We’re…
