Yesterday I went to take some pictures of Colten & Chloe who are officially one month old! They didn’t get newborn pictures done because they were born early and were kept in the hospital for a few weeks before they were allowed to come home, so we did the best we could with their little squirmy selves! Poor things were so done with us by the time we wrapped things up! Thank God for Momma…

Happy Monday, guys! I have a fun DIY for ya today! I’ve been totally obsessed with these letterboards since they started popping up in every trendy blogger’s perfectly designed living space. Anyway- I felt like I needed one. But when I went online to start my search, not only are they really pricey, they’re also not all that popular. Like there aren’t a ton of places to purchase them from yet. So I went to…

Good morning!! Happy Tuesday, guys! I’m excited because the weather seems to be taking a very early turn into Spring. I realize that that’s not really a good thing, but I love the warmer weather so I can’t help but to get a little excited when it starts to warm up! Even if it’s really not permanent- I’m taking full advantage. Adulthood has seriously taken the creativity out of my OOTD’s the last few years – I…

It’s sort of inappropriate that I’m posting about this today considering the temperature is over 70 degrees here. LOL. Regardless – It’ll probably drop by tomorrow anyway and I’ll need the sweater. I’ve been loving the sweater/skirt pairing this year, sweater/dress, sweater/maxi, etc. I think it’s feminine, super stylish, and it adds a little diversity to what I wear – which is.. usually jeans and some kind of shirt. It’s just so easy! This camel color and…

My skin this winter has been HORRIBLE. I am usually pretty oily so when winter rolls around, my skin is perfect. But since I’ve been on the Humira, I’ve been struggling with some bad dry skin! It’s a known side effect, so that on top of my tendency to have dryer skin in the winter has made me desperate for some good products. The Trifectaaaa! Lush lip scrubbies, Olay face cream, and the visibly soft eos balm. Lush…

On January 25, 2017, the Twitter world blew up in conversation about mental illnesses all under the hashtag “#BellLetsTalk”.  Millions of people varying in age, participated in an effort to break the stigmas surrounding mental illnesses and those that suffer from them. Despite depression being the leading cause of disability in America, there’s still this negativity; this shame that comes with it. Despite it being one of the most common illnesses, there are still so many…

As we discover new products that we love, we start incorporating new things into our routines! I’ve found a few new things that I seem to not be able to live without since I’ve started using them…. My makeup has been super basic lately as I’ve sort of been loving my natural face and the low maintenance routine that comes with not wanting to wear too much. Also, my skin has cleared up a ton,…

Of the new year, that is! This is the second winter I’ve been living with Kyle – which means the second snowy season I’ve spent alone! He’s a firefighter so when it snows, he usually gets called into work. He was scheduled to work today, but he’ll probably stay there tomorrow as well. It’s a little… uneasy feeling when he’s working in inclement weather. Especially this year since he’s switched houses, he works closer to Interstate…

I am seeing so much “BYE FELICIA”, “BYE 2016-  YOU SUCK”, and “HOPING FOR A BETTER YEAR…” online and I’m hearing it in real life, too! But I guess I just don’t really get it. I understand that there were a lot of negative things that occurred in 2016 and that an election year brings on a ton of divisive feelings all on its own,  but there were tons of amazing things that happened in 2016, too.…

I love fedoras.  I  know some people make fun of them, but I don’t care. I used to hate wearing hats altogether but the last few years, I’ve been wearing the hell out of them. Fedora’s can be a little expensive (in my opinion) I just feel like paying $20+ for an accessory is a bit much, especially when they come in a bajillion different colors and styles.  Like, yes, I do need them all.…

Nothing is ever really free, so keep that in mind.  But you can have really awesome dates for only a little cash! Picnics are great because they’re awesome for conversation. It’s just you and your person enjoying the outdoors and food, maybe some drinking – there’s literally nothing bad about this idea. Unless you hate being outside, I guess. But it’s a way to take advantage of nice weather, and you get to eat. Or regular parks! State parks…
