    My Gratitude List

    Gratitude: the quality of being thankful. Wow, I will be the first person to say that I have not been thankful or even thinking of things to show gratitude for recently. But, I’m changing this. Since July, it’s been really hard. I had knee surgery that my recovery did not go as I expected. The doctor told me I wouldn’t be on crutches. I was on crutches for around a month. I wasn’t prepared and then that ended up making the start of my school year extremely difficult. However, I do have a lot of things to be grateful for, especially considering the current state of the world. I wrote…

    Baby Shower Gift Ideas

    Oh baby! Baby shower gift ideas have been coming to me left and right. Maybe it’s because baby shower gifts are definitely something I love shopping for. They’re adorable and I know that some little baby is going to enjoy it! One thing I’ve noticed is that new moms and dads are putting certain things on their lists, and they’re typically things that they must needs. However, I like to think of the may need or something they might not have thought of (or wouldn’t ask for). It seems the majority of my friends are now either firmly in the seriously dating, married, or having kids section of life. This…

    President’s Day Sales

    President’s Day Sales are sometimes the best sales of the year. It’s always a good time to fill up your cart for new spring clothes. It’s also a time when you can find staple pieces for your closet. We all know that I like to think very realistically. At the end of the day, I’m not going out and buying designer items at full price every day-or even every year. I love a good sale or even just some extra cashback. Especially with the rising prices of subscriptions to Netflix and Amazon Prime (and well the rising cost of everything), I’m definitely going back through and checking what everything costs.…

    Last Minute Valentine’s Day Plans

    Oh, goodness-it’s time to make last minute Valentine’s Day plans! Every year, at least one holiday sneaks up on me. Most of the time, it’s Valentine’s Day. Honestly, it’s probably because I’m single so it’s not something I’m super focused on. I absolutely love the idea of Valentine’s Day. I think it is so sweet to have a day for your significant other. I also know that making plans can get pushed to the back burner because of being busy or whatever else is going on. However, I also believe that every day can be Valentine’s Day. Well, now that it’s the last minute. Let’s see what we can put…

    What’s the Deal with Instagram?

    Instagram’s algorithm is changing. We’ve all seen it. It’s just like every other social media site or app. It’s changing to keep people on their toes. Especially with the rise of influencers, social media apps are constantly changing the game. It’s frustrating. Pinterest has even changed its game. With Instagram changing, it might be pushing its users toward TikTok and other apps and platforms. Instagram Instagram is rewarding users that are constantly making reels and story-ing. They are rewarding people that are spending their lives on the app. If we’re being realistic, anyone who works a full-time job can only spend so much time on an app. It’s just not…

    Winter Workout Routine

    Winter workouts are so hard to plan because of the ever-changing weather. I created a winter workout routine to not only help me with my fitness but also allow me to be consistent! I’ve done a few workout posts before and we all know I love at-home workouts. So, what does an at-home workout look like during the winter? Well, it’s not outside, that’s for sure! Winter in Virginia is literally the most unpredictable thing ever. Honestly, most seasons are! Here’s my winter workout routine: Peloton ride | I do a quick 20-30 minute spin ride. I do not have the actual Peloton bike, though. I ended up getting a…

    Home Organization

    Home organization. This is something I’ve struggled with other the years, especially since the house I live in right now doesn’t have any built-in storage minus closets. One thing that I don’t like is spending a ton of money to organize. It’s tough when so many organizational things are so expensive, so I tried to go to places that have easily accessible things or things that you could swap out for something else that is similar. I’ve also talked about home decor. Decor is great, I love decorating. Everyone loves a good vibe and feeling to their home. But, the decor can also be functional. I picked neutral colors when…

    Reselling Tips

    Reselling tips are in hot demand as people continue to clean out homes and are trying to find a way to get their items new homes. I’m one of them. I have so many clothes that I just don’t wear anymore. This is an excellent way to help out your financial situation and create some extra income. Reselling also gives you an opportunity to take fast fashion and make it more sustainable. There are also people who no longer buy products first hand, and will only buy from these “second hand’ sites. You will often find items for much less than original retail cost but still in fantastic condition. Reselling…
