    blogger recognition award

    Happy happy Monday babes! I just found out I was nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award by Allyson from the blog Too Much Lemonade and I couldn’t be more excited! Blogging is my passion and before I started, I obsessed about starting haha (seriously tho, for like, 4 years). So in this post I want to not only accept the award nomination, but also share some things I’ve learned over the past year and half from blogging 🙂

    Weight Loss Tips – How I lost 30lbs!!!

    weight loss tips

    So I’m sure you’re all here because of my title (a year and a half ago I was clicking anything with the words “weight loss tips” in them). I’ve been thinking about writing this post for awhile, but I’ve hesitated because for one, this story is quite personal, and two, I don’t want to come off as self-righteous. The truth is, what I did to lose 30lbs might not work for everyone, so please take these weight loss tips with a grain of salt 🙂 However, if you’re like me and you’ve decided it’s time to make a change, then I think these tips are gonna be just what you’re looking for!

    Subscription Boxes – Worth the Hype?

    subscription boxes

    Happy Hump Day! Today I want to to talk to you guys about a trend I’ve seen get bigger and bigger (and I’m sure you have too). The trend I’m talking about is that of the subscription box. Companies like Ipsy and Stitch Fix promote this idea of a quick and easy way to try new makeup or get in on the latest fashion trends. I’ve tried a few subscription boxes myself, and I want to share with you my personal opinion on whether or not they’ve been worth it. If you’ve tried one out, please leave me a comment below and let me know your experience!

    Thoughts on Turning 27 (Mini Life Crisis!)

    mini life crisis

    Good morning loves. I’m sure you’ve all noticed I’ve been a little MIA lately. I think I’ve posted 1 blog post in the entire month of July, and maybe 2 or 3 times to Instagram #FUUUUCK. I tried to keep forcing myself to just write something, or just post any photos to IG, but I’ve felt so uninspired! So I thought what better way to share with you guys what’s been going on in my life than to write about it? I figure it all started around my birthday and my trip to LA, so let’s jump right in to my thoughts on turning 27 and my mini life crisis 🙂
