Alright, so I know that it’s the end of December and the holidays are honestly almost over. But it’s been on my list to write this post since I shot these photos a few weeks ago, and I’ll be damned if I was gonna let them go to waste! (#persist) That being said, let’s talk about 3 ways to wear sparkle for the holidays! Or ya know, just any time of year. Because honestly I’d probably wear sequins every day of my life if you guys wouldn’t judge me for it. (New 2019 goal, perhaps? 😏 )
Now I know some of y’all are extra like me, and are like – umm the only way to wear sparkle is to cover your body with it entirely. Obviously. But for those of you who are more reserved, or ya know, just normal – I’ve got you covered too girl! Scroll below for 3 different ways to wear your sparkle, and for lots of outfit links and inspo as well.
Bonjour! As most of you know, (or at least any of you who follow me on Instagram), Daniel and I recently took our first international trip together to Paris! And while I’m still drowning in photos edits from that trip (and probably will be for the foreseeable future…I’m not exactly known for being the fastest blogger around on my turnaround time, considering I still haven’t blogged our Cali trip 🙄), I thought I would bang out a couple of quick pics to write you guys a list of the 15 Best Paris Instagram Spots! This was honestly the hardest list to write because EVERYWHERE in Paris was so beautiful, but these spots take the Parisian cake! So let’s hop to it, ya IG crazies.
Hey ya’ll! It’s been a minute. I’m not sure if it’s the weather getting warmer (or in the case of Phoenix, straight up HOT!), or the fact that I’ve just been a busy little bee, but time has been flying lately! However, time flying aside, I’m here now! Here, and ready to update y’all on life – and also tell you about my new ultimate travel backpack (for fashion girls, duh!).
You know what’s the worst? Going shopping and finding something you absolutely love, only to find that it fits you…completely wrong. It’s like some sort of cruel joke. Whether your bust is too big (or in my case, too small 🙄 the worst!) for the the top that fits you otherwise perfectly, or the jeans that fit your thighs just right, but leave a gaping space between your butt and the back hem of the jeans because you aren’t a Kardashian, it’s an altogether frustrating scenario that happens wayyy too often. (Don’t lose heart just yet though – this post is gonna help you get the perfect fit!)
There’s something to be said for a morning ritual – an order in which you do things to get your day started on the right note. A favorite song to wake you up, a morning yoga routine to energize you, a cup of morning coffee. Honestly, my morning routine is something I desperately need to work on. You’d think I’d be better about having a peaceful morning ritual, especially as a freelancer who can make my own schedule – but I suppose that’s just something I’ll have to try and improve on this year! Anyway, while Daniel and I have gotten pretty lax about keeping to any sort of regular routine lately, there’s still one thing that we usually love to share in together to start our day off right – and that’s our cup of morning coffee.

You know how some things just feel so inherently French? A plain turtleneck. Black and white stripes, or simple polka dots. Black ballet flats. A red lip. The ever classic French beret. So what happens when you throw a couple of these French staples together? Maybe you get something a little cliché…or just maybe you get an outfit that is trés chic – Parisian Chic, that is. 😉 Okay, okay, I’ll stop being corny. Let’s continue, shall we? Read more
I’ve never been the biggest fan of New Year’s resolutions – the whole concept seems just a teensy bit flighty, and most people tend to abandon them by the end of January, right? Instead, I’m more of a believer that you should constantly be making new goals and trying to improve upon yourself. I mean, sure – the start of a new year can be a motivating blank slate, all fresh, new, and ready for change. But I also feel like the new year can contain a lot of pressure to make it your “best year yet!” And while the reality is that I truly do hope this is one of the best years yet (for everyone), I know that there will undoubtedly be some challenges and hardships along the way.
That being said, I decided to put together a small list of 5 goals you can actually keep in the new year – regardless of your age, sex, interests, etc. Basically, if you’re a human, I think you’ve got a pretty good chance at killing it with these 5 goals in the new year. 🙂
