Living a Happier, Healthier Life

Happiness is key. Cliche? Of course. True? Absolutely. Happy souls are healthy souls! I've changed up and added some things to my daily routine that really do have such a positive impact on my happiness and my life in general ↓↓


Just poppin' in to share some pictures of my pup and this easy to recreate outfit!

Meet Charlie

I wish all of you could jump through whatever you're reading this on to meet Charlie in person... he's the best (not biased 😜). He's a 12 week-old mini Goldendoodle and only ways a mere 12 pounds. He's so lovable and (sort of) a good listener. His fluffy little face is so hard to leave... going to school in the morning kills me. Anyhow, I'm so, so, so happy he's mine!

Wednesday Thoughts

 If you read the end of my last post you'd know I wasn't really planning on posting anything until I came home from vacation... well, that was short-lived; I finished all the books and schoolwork I brought with me way quicker than I was expecting. I'm happy to have some time to write... there are so many things I've been thinking about lately. 

Road Trip Necessities

After school today, my family and I are hopping in the car and heading off on a 22-hour-straight trip seeking sea and sunshine; I'm over the moon! Although it seems like sitting in the car for so long would make you insane, I've actually gotten used to it and even started to enjoy the ride (but that's easy to say when I'm just a passenger and don't do any of the driving). Road trips are fun and all, but only if you're prepared. I remember one year I packed very little to do and was bored out of my mind after the first 4 hours... the other 18 went by veryyyy slowly. Here's a peek into my travel bag to share everything you (and I) need to stay content while in the car for a long period of time.

The Best of Athletic Wear

I've been trying to make it a point to run more often. Granted time doesn't always allow or there are times when I'm too tired (excuses, excuses... I know), I don't make it to the treadmill every day, but I'm ok with that. It's not as much that I'm into burning calories or having a better-looking figure as it is that I think being able to run well really comes in handy. I'm going on vacation in a few weeks and I'm really looking forward to jogging on the beach in the morning. There's something about going for a run that's so refreshing - especially when you can do it without getting too out of breath.

What to Ask Yourself Before Posting on Social Media

With all the technology around, almost everything can be done/said with the push of a button. It's kinda scary when you really think about it, but at the same time, I think I'd be lost without my phone. I mean, Instagram is the main reason I'm able to promote my blog, texting helps me keep up with my friends, and Snapchat is just a goofy way for me to fool around (the toast filter is my favorite!!).
