    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 🙂

Whatever the scenario, we’ve all had those mornings where we need to be up and out the door in 15 minutes or less. That’s why I’ve partnered up with HerStyler to show you how I get myself together with this 15 minute summer morning routine 🙂

However, as you guys probably know, I’ve been trying really hard to reach my fitness goals, and drinking a ton of empty calories is definitely not my idea of a celebration. That’s why I’m excited to partner up with Perrier for this post to bring you my favorite 4th of July inspired cocktails!
