Shine On: 6 Warm Accessories for Your Home

I would love to sprinkle these pieces throughout our home. They are warm, sophisticated and timeless. Plus, they would work great no matter how your color palette may change throughout the years. 

Run the day

Last week, I really let stress and negativity get the best of me. But today is new day. Here's to making great things happen and doing it with a smile. Happiest of Monday's to you all! 

It seems like at this point in January, the gym suddenly clears back out to its normal state and people begin to go back to old comfortable habits. Stay strong and continue moving forward with your goals (no matter what they are). You're future self with thank you :)


weekend wear | 02

Weekend essentials almost always include a cozy sweater and stylish sneakers. It's perfectly practical for purusing through bookstores and casual coffee dates. 

Happiest of Holidays

Why hello there! It's been quite hit and miss over here on the blog.  I was feeling completely overwhelmed by the idea of coming home from work and spending more time on the computer. But, I think I'm ready to give it another try! I've certainly missed the abundance of inspiration and encouraging community.

I hope you all had the best holiday season ever. It was probably our most memorable Christmas yet. Nathan and I opened up a pair of rollerblades on Christmas morning. We spent a good portion of the day outside blading with our little nieces and nephew. It brought back so many memories. Ahhh I felt young and free... and it was a surprisingly good leg workout ;)

Cheers to a new week!
