How To Deal With Stress and Feeling Overwhelmed

March 23, 2017

Many of us think that we can be superwoman or superman and do it all. The 40 hour work week. The side hustle. School. The social life. Taking care of our families. But what happens when this all catches up to you and you feel totally burnt out and suddenly hit a wall of immense anxiety that starts to consume you? Unfortunately it's been drilled into our heads that a go-go-go approach to life is normal and expected of us. Thanks western society. This mentality is detrimental to our health and it's very important to take time and be kind to ourselves and get back on the right path to finding the things in our life that makes us feel good. In this post I'm sharing 9 things to do when you've hit a wall and overwhelmed with life.

What to Do When You Are Feeling Overwhelmed and Stressed Out With Life

Spring Break in Miami | Casual Beach Outfit

March 20, 2017

Okay, I'm not in college anymore (nor do I wish to be), but I just got back from what I'm calling my spring break. After these short, dark, and cold days of winter, I hit a point where I felt uninspired, unmotivated, and just waiting for spring. I think we all have these feelings, especially if we live in seasonal climates. Don't get me wrong, I love having my seasons, but winter just takes a toll on you. That's why when my girl friends asked me if I wanted to go to Miami, Florida with them over spring break I thought to myself: um, duh? I needed to make this happen. One of my goals for 2017 is to travel, so this was the perfect opportunity.

With just one more week left until the first day of spring, a new season is officially upon us. Since I got great feed back on my trends post from last week, I wanted to share 5 pieces and provide links to shop them that I'm super excited to style for the spring season. Some are new that I never thought I would ever wear (yay for trying new things!) and some are timeless that continue to remain a wardrobe staple year after year.

How To Love Yourself and Be Confident Every Day

March 8, 2017

In a perfect world, we would all look our best, always know when to say the right thing, be completely fearless, and just slay at life 24/7, right?

In real life, we all have days where we don't want to look in the mirror, would rather keep our mouths shut, and are faced with scenarios that make us just want to crawl into a ball and hide. How do we minimize these feelings from our life? 

How to Be More Confident Every Day

21 Must-Have Wearable Trends To Try This Spring

March 6, 2017

Spring is near...and I'm officially over winter that's for sure! With every new season comes new trends, some we're familiar with and some we might have to warm up to. To be honest, I'm not much of runway junkie. I love fashion, but I like practical fashion, i.e. clothing that is functional, wearable, comfortable, and stylish. Oh! And budget friendly too, because I like featuring affordable options for all the ladies out there like me that don't want to break the bank, but still want to look put together.

15 Wearable Trends straight run the runway to Shop For This Spring

Through winter I definitely stick to a cold-weather uniform such as jeans, pants, sweaters, warm coats, and neutrals. Once the temperatures start to warm up I have more freedom to experiment with my style, especially trends! This look I'm sharing is more of a winter to spring transitional outfit, but also incorporates a few spring trends.
