I have reading up a storm lately, so this set of reviews is another long one. All in all, this was a much better set of books than my last one! I was also lucky enough to receive two pre-releases, so a big thank you to Lake Union Publishing! (I’ve noted those for reference, &, as always, any opinion is strictly my own.) Finally, if you want to keep up with what I’m currently reading at any time, I added a Goodreads widget to the sidebar! Now on to the books!
How are we already a week into 2019? The first part of a new year is always time to look back at the previous year & look forward to the year ahead. It’s a time of fresh starts & clean slates. I’ve spent some time over the last week reflecting on what 2018 brought & thinking about what I want to accomplish in the upcoming year. Today I’m excited to share my reflections on 2018 & my goals for 2019 with you!CONTINUE READING
I’m back on this lovely Wednesday with another round of book reviews! The cold temps make me want to curl up in front of the fire with a good book! This time, I’ve added in a star system to give you an idea of how the books rank compared to each other. There were some really great reads in this group (Children of Blood & Bone) & a few really not-great reads (A Simple Favor, I’m looking at you). I’ve been reading a ton lately (some amazing thrillers!), so I’m already working on the next set of reviews. If you want to keep up with what I’m reading in between these reviews, you can follow me on Goodreads! As always, I’m on the lookout for suggestions, so please leave them in the comments!
I love, love, love a good podcast! I rarely listen to music in the car anymore because there are so many great podcasts out there. It’s a wonderful way to keep up to date on the news or pop culture, learn something, be inspired, or just laugh. My taste in podcasts ranges from reality tv breakdowns to true crime. Here are some of my favorite podcasts to listen to while I’m driving, working, or working out.
Happy Monday sweet friends! I don’t have a look, or a book list, or really anything in particular to share today. While I’m not sure that anyone noticed, today I wanted to take the opportunity to have a little chat & explain why I chose to take a break from blogging & social media for the last few weeks.
TGIF Friends! I’m back today with another round of book reviews! I can’t believe it’s been so long since I posted one of these! As always, I’m giving you my honest opinion on some of my latest reads. This set is a mix of thrillers, YA, chick-lit, & beach reads, so there’s something for everyone!
Happy Memorial Day friends! I hope that everyone takes a minute during their holiday to remember those who gave their lives in service for our country & the families who were left behind.
Today I wanted to quickly share some of my favorites pieces from the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale & some of the best Memorial Day Sales going on now. The Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale runs through June 3, so I’ve added a tab under the “Shop” menu that I’ll be updating throughout the sale as things sell-out & new items are added. Some of my most-worn pieces are in this sale, so be sure to check out my Instagram stories today to see which ones they are!
Good morning friends! Your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you, so I am so excited to be teaming up with Smile Brilliant today to share how I’ve been whitening & brightening my smile! This is something that I have struggled with for as long as I can remember. As most of you know, I love coffee & red wine, neither of which are ideal for keeping your smile sparkly white. Over the counter whitening products never did much for me, so when Smile Brilliant reached out, I was eager to give their professional system a try. I cannot begin to tell you how pleased I am with my results & the Smile Brilliant at-home teeth whitening system! The Smile Brilliant custom teeth whitening kit is just like what you’d receive at a dentist’s office, at a fraction of the cost. Plus, Smile Brilliant makes it so easy to get custom teeth whitening trays from the comfort of your home – their kit contains everything you need!
Guys, I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am to be heading off to the Caribbean next week for a 7 night cruise with Royal Caribbean! This will be Patrick & I’s second cruise together, but we’re going to 2 new ports this time to keep it new & interesting. We’ll be stopping at Roatan, Honduras, Costa Maya, Mexico & Cozumel, Mexico. Follow me on Instagram & Stories to keep up with all of the fun! In the meantime, I’ve been planning my outfits in an attempt to keep from over-packing & today I’m sharing what to pack for a cruise vacation!
