    Goodbye 2016

    As I get older I swear time flies by even faster and 2016 has honestly been a blur. I’m writing this post a few days before Christmas and I keep thinking I still have two weeks left in 2016 to wrap up everything that’s on my to-do list. Wrong. I only have one week and Christmas day is completely booked with family events. Hopefully I can catch up on my list of things to do on my extra day off this week. Last year I posted two lists of goals I wanted to achieve in 2016: my New Year’s Resolutions and 2016 Fitness Goals. I think it’s important to take time to reflect…

    Mid-Year Check In | 2016 Goals

    A lot of people make New Year’s Resolutions for themselves at the turn of year, but I rarely hear anyone talking about their previous year’s resolutions and if they achieved them. Maybe some just forget what their resolutions were or maybe they aren’t looking to reflect on the past, but I enjoy looking back at goals I set for myself to see what I achieved and I what I can continue to improve upon. Lucky for me, I blogged all about my New Year’s Resolutions and My 2016 Fitness Goals, and I wanted to see how I’m doing so far now that nearly half the year is already over. I’m always…

    Los Angeles Recap

    I’m back from my vacation to Los Angeles! Trips are always a nice way to get refreshed and appreciate your hometown (and bed). I’m still on the road to recovery in terms of catching up on sleep since I like to be go-go-go on vacation with little sleep in between days. I definitely wore my friend out that I was staying with – sorry! I’m so thankful that she was able to host me and show me around LA and Hollywood where she’s been living the past few years. The weather while I was visiting was less than perfect, but I didn’t let it hold me back. With the exception of…

    Travel Makeup & What I’m Doing In LA

    I’m leaving for Los Angeles tomorrow and I’m super excited! I’m going to visit a friend who has lived out there for a few years now. I already shared what I’m packing for outfits and what’s on my wish list of things to do while there – read about all that here. Today, it’s all about what’s in my travel makeup bag. When I travel, I pretty much stick to bringing favorites so I know I’ll be happy with the looks during my vacation. makeup bag I purchased a roll-up/hanging toiletry bag before our trip to Iceland so I could hang it the hotel and conserve space. It’s come in handy for multiple…

    Los Angeles Outfits & Snacks for Travel

    I’m already packing for my trip! Honestly, I started packing a while ago by getting together a list of items to bring. I wanted to share my outfits I’m bring to Los Angeles for my four day, three night stay. I’m visiting a friend in LA so I’m fortunate in that sense that I’m not stressing too much about forgetting anything. If I forget something, I’m sure I can borrow an item or we can easily pick something up at Target. To help me pack for trips I like to make a list of items I’ll bring. Sometimes I make my own list in Excel, but this time around I…
