Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Today I want to chat quickly about repurposing dresses within seasons, because it’s super easy to do.

I got this dress back in July from Zara for $10 which is an absolute steal. If you’ve never been to the Zara sale, I recommend you mentally prepare, but also do it. Do it for your wallet.

Keeping Fall Decor Fresh & Simple

Hi pals!

This weekend I decided to venture to my local TJ Maxx (as one does), for some fall decor! It was time to spice up the normal apartment decor for something a bit seasonal, so what better place than the ol Maxx?

My goal was to find pieces that weren’t SCREAMING fall in your face, but that were also enough to get the vibe across for these couple of months. I actually found it really hard achieve this, so I had to get a bit creative. Read more to see what I did to supplement the typical ‘autumn decor’ for something a bit more natural (and costly), and how it worked for me!

Last Month’s Beauty Faves

Long time no blog, ugh!!

You guys, I don’t know what is wrong with me and I have no explanation for not blogging, since not having enough time is truly not an excuse. It makes me sad that Instagram has gotten the best of me and I somehow think that posting on there is equally as good as coming on here and writing a post — and it’s not.

ANYWAYS, let’s get to my beauty favorites of last month since this is really one of my favorite things to write about.

Back to Basics this V-Day

Happy Sunday all!!

I’ve been MIA on the blog lately…….

I write when I am inspired, I write when I have time and I write because I want to. Sadly and unfortunately, I haven’t had any of that recently. However, instead of being upset about it (I was for like, 2 mins), I’m just going to accept it and move on.

That’s why, I am writing to you TODAY! It’s a Sunday and I have nothing to do, so I am going to write…about Valentine’s Day of all things! I know last year I put out two gift guides, and that was awesome and you all really liked it. However, when I think about what I just wrote about inspiration, I did not feel inspired to write a gift guide this year and here’s why…

Valentine’s Day is awesome and for the most part, I really enjoy it. Mostly because I am in a relationship and have a reason to celebrate love, but also because a day devoted to love and commitment is really nice and chivalrous in a way, which we don’t see much of anymore.

However, I wanted to just go back to the basics this Valentine’s Day and instead of promote my favorite things and the best gifts, just talk about ways to share an evening with the person you love.

I get home from work really late every night so I don’t get to see my significant other as much as I would like. That’s why this Valentine’s Day, if he dropped by with some roses and a hug and asked me to hangout and watch one of our Netflix shows, I would be more than happy with that idea of a V-Day. Come the weekend, if we wanted to grab a bite to eat and share a glass of wine together, I would love that too. It seems like this year more than any year, the holidays, my birthday and Valentine’s Day all seem really close together. The last thing I need is another gift — if I am being completely honest. (I’ll regret saying that when it’s the middle of July and I’ve gone gift-less for five months and still have another 6 gift-less months ahead of me). I guess it’s because the fact that I am working full time now, time just seems to fly by. The bottom line is, what I want most this Valentine’s Day is to spend time with my guy, enjoy a glass of wine and relax. I’d like to reflect on love, and that’s how I am taking it back to the basics this year.

No gift guide, no favorite things — just plain ol’ blogging and loving.

My Galentine

Every year it seems my circle of friends gets smaller and smaller and honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m not being cynical or closed off, I’m simply growing up, and I love watching it take it’s course.

If you don’t have a Valentine this year, that’s okay…I think it’s an important time to also reflect and appreciate the close friendships you have in your life. A little bit about me and my galentine (we both have Valentine’s, too, but can always be each other’s galentine’s). Taylor and I met back in 2012 (? WOW !) when we were in HIGH SCHOOL! We were both on the field hockey team and kind of hated every minute of it, so we bonded. We got closer and closer over the years and it’s one of those friendships that has truly never fizzled out. We make time for one another, we don’t have to do anything to have a good time, and enjoy one another’s families. Our boyfriends have gotten to be good friends as well, so it’s really fun!!

Over the past couple years, the word Galentine has been thrown around a lot and honestly, I love it. Long are the days where only people in relationships can celebrate on a certain day — let’s all celebrate. If you have a Galentine or are celebrating anti-Valentine’s in any sort of way, tell me about it!! I think it’s such a fun time of year to celebrate all love.
