Hey babes, happy Friday! Today’s post is a “life lately” type of post. I know I’m not so great at sharing personal details of my life with you all, and I want to try and improve. So, I thought I’d tell you about the most important thing in my life, and the story behind my newest tattoo! Which, if you didn’t know about, then head over to my IG and follow along for my Insta Stories!
How many of you travel during the holidays? Every November, I road trip out to Eastern Washington for Thanksgiving, and in December I’m on the road again to spend the holidays with my family in Southern Oregon. 😊 This time of year always gets me excited; I love getting up in the morning and hitting the road while the sun is just coming up over the Cascades, it’s just so beautiful! There is one tradition I always have to follow before every road trip though…I absolutely HAVE to have a delicious cup of coffee to fuel me up for the drive!

My family and I always had cats when I was growing up. All of our cats have been…unique lol. Speedy had 7 toes on one foot and loved dressing up in doll clothes and getting pushed around the cul de sac in a stroller, Milo had a crooked tail, and Smelly Rat (yeah, I know, don’t ask) had a crazy head twitch that freaked out more than one house guest haha. All of our cats were different breeds and had different dietary needs, but for as long as I can remember, Purina® was always our #1 cat food choice. Now I love giving it to my kitty as part of her healthy cat-care routine!

I recently shared a weight loss post that was a big hit with you guys, and a few people wanted me to keep sharing my health routines (you can check out the weight loss post here!). To keep with the theme of healthy living, I thought I would share my daily vitamin routine with you! I’ve been following this routine for years now, and it’s pretty simple. Really anyone can do it, and it makes remember to take my vitamins so much easier!
Body confidence is something I’ve struggled with most of my life. Growing up I would always eat more than I was hungry for to try and gain weight. My friends in middle school would make comments about my weight and tell me that I was too skinny. Then in high school, I had a best friend who was SO gorgeous and was a few sizes bigger than me (meaning she was like, a size 6 compared to my 2, so silly to think back on now!). I was so jealous that she had boobs and a butt, and I was super narrow and bony. I never realized how my jealousy was more about not feeling good in my own body until I was much older, after my overeating turned in to too much weight gain. Once I was at the point of being overweight and not feeling good about myself from an opposite extreme, I started thinking back and realizing it was time to really try and love my body. I know there are a lot of people out there who also struggle with their self-image, so I wanted to share 5 tips I live by for boosting body confidence.
Happy Wednesday loves! If you’re a blogger or just love getting a good photo on Instagram, then I bet you notice when a restaurant or coffee shop is “Instagram worthy.” Sometimes I’ll even save locations in my phone when I see bloggers at a cute brunch spot around town! Since I’m always on the hunt for these aesthetically pleasing spaces, I figured I’d share my top 5 Instagram worthy cafe’s in Portland, Oregon!
