Blogging Vacation

Hey friends. So I just wanted to let you guys know that I have decided to step away from blogging for a few weeks. I have been dealing with so many things lately and find it harder and harder to sit down at my computer and write posts throughout the week. I have been thinking of taking a spring blogging vacation for a little while now but I was initially afraid of losing readers. But at the end of the day, I know I need to take care of myself and do what’s best for me. I hope you guys understand. I’m going to take the rest of the month of May off so I will … [Read more...]

eShakti Dress Review


Back in February, my friends at eShakti contacted me and asked if I would be interested in reviewing one of their dresses from their website. This was just before my knee surgery so I didn’t respond right away, but ended up placing an order about a month later after I had recovered a little bit. I’m excited to share my thoughts on what I got! Disclaimer: eShakti did send me a dress at no cost in exchange for a review here on this blog. All thoughts are my own. eShakti is a clothing company that offers customized pieces in sizes 0 to 36. When placing an order, you … [Read more...]

Things Loved in April


I know I say this every month but I can’t believe April has come and gone. This year is flying by. I would normally say I don’t like it but I love spring and summer, so I will gladly welcome the month of May. Here are some things I’ve loved this past month: Essie’s “Mademoiselle” Polish: I have a slight obsession with nude polishes and I think this one might be THE one. The color is the perfect shade of light pink and IT IS NOT STREAKY!! Some nude polishes are really hard to work with but this one has a nice look with just 2 coats. Bubble Baths: I was originally … [Read more...]

Happy What I Ate Wednesday! Today’s post is kind of short and sweet, so here’s a full day of recent eats: Breakfast 2 eggs with 2 kiwis. I’ve noticed my fruit intake has been super low recently so I’ve tried to add in some variety this week. Snack Banana oatmeal: 1/3 C oats, 2/3 C milk, 1 large diced banana, cinnamon and vanilla extract. Plop of peanut butter in the middle. Love. Okay, so this was a really heavy “snack”. The truth is I just wanted some oatmeal. Definitely didn’t eat it enough this winter! Lunch Leftover grilled chicken and a bunch of … [Read more...]
