• Apartment Therapy

    So today has been a rather slow day at work (shhh, don’t tell my boss) so I’ve been finding myself looking around online at different ways I can decorate our apartment on a serious budget, like literally no money.  I came across the website Apartmenttherapy.com, and no this is not a sponsored post. Now, some of you may be already into this website, but today was my first time browsing it’s many different articles and suggestions.  Trying to decorate on seiously no money is almost inpossible, but I did manage to find a few new ideas that I would like to incorporate. The other piece of information that I found…

  • Christmas in July

    *Disclaimer: I received compensation for this post.  All opinions expressed here are my own and not those of anyone else. I am responsible for the content – not anyone else.* Where did the concept Christmas in July come from? I seriously have no idea but there are tons of sales this time of the month and it’s all related to Christmas! Not that I’m complaining, this girl LOVES Christmas! Anyways, with Christmas in July happening it’s got me thinking about actual Christmas and something I love to do, which is send out family holiday cards. You know, the ones where you make everyone dress the same and pose about 100…

  • Quick tips for a good sunscreen

    I can’t believe Memorial Day is over and the unofficial start to summer has arrived!! I love summer but could do without the humidity that we get here in the Ocean State. So that being said, with the summer comes sunscreen, and remembering to apply it. As of lately I’ve become slightly obsessed with products that are good for your skin and the earth, which my wallet isn’t always happy about! But needless to say, reading the back of every label has its advantages because I do not want harmful ingredients getting into my blood stream. I have complied a list of harm ingredients that you NEED to avoid when…

  • 7 things I’ve learned living alone

    It’s been almost 7 months that I’ve been living “alone”, I use that loosely since I spend a lot of time at my boyfriends house 😉 Anyways, occurred to me that even though I am only home a few days a week I have really learned a lot about myself while living here. I thought I might put into words how having my first apartment has affected me, before I go and move in with my boyfriend eventually. I go through A LOT of toilet paper!! Does anyone else feel like they are blowing through toilet paper? Cooking for one is no fun! I hate cooking for myself, which has…

  • Back to the grind…

    My saving grace this week is brought to you by Quaker Oats…no seriously it is. Right before I left, Influenster had sent me some overnight oats to try out. I didn’t have much time to do that before I left, so when I cam home and remembered that I already had breakfast for two days, I was stoked!! Going to the grocery store in general is annoying and I really didn’t want to go the day I came back from a two week vacation. So needless to say, this post is just a wee bit sponsored but that’s okay–I like free things! I received two cups of overnight oats that…

  • Wanderlust in 2 days!!

    I can’t believe that I am leaving for my European vacation in 2 days–this trip was booked back in January, so to say I have been waiting a while is an understatement. Just last night I finally started packing and trying to figure out what is going in my carryon. I have about 9hrs of travel time ahead of me on Thursday + one day….yikes! Since I have an overnight flight, I wanted to make sure that I was going to be as comfortable as possible. I’m hoping to catch some zzzzzz’s with my eye mask, neck pillow, and ear plugs. I’m debating on whether or not to bring a…

  • Summer 2017 Favorites

    I am so excited that it is almost summer here in New England. Although today it’s about 90 degrees, so that isn’t fun, but the warmer weather and longer nights and totally worth it. I’ve been so busy trying out new products/supplies and now I am finally ready to share them with you! Over the past couple of months I have tried some great stuff and have really been getting involved in my Beautycounter business. I’m starting to realize that spending extra money on products that are actually good for you is really important. Must-have items this summer!
