Office Space

    Confession: I still live at home with parents. I say “confession” like it’s an embarrassing thing to admit, but I don’t mind it one bit! It’s financially better for me at this point in my life and I happen to kind of, sort love my parental units a lot (No, mom and dad, I don’t want anything! I’m just being honest!)  My boyfriend Ted, however, has his own place. I guess you could say I’m there a bit, you know, here and there. Okay, okay! I…

10 Ways to Fight Stress

First off, I wanted to give a sincere thank you to everyone who read and or commented on my last post. The feedback was very sweet, encouraging, and inspiring. It’s always nice to know that other people can relate to how and what you’re feeling. So once again, thank you for taking the time to read and comment! It means the absolute world to me. After that post however, I realized that I should probably follow-up with some ways that I combat stress. Below I have listed 10 things that I tend to do when…

Real Talk

I sort of want to start by apologizing for not posting very much last week. Not very much as in I posted once #oops On the other hand, I don’t feel the need to apologize as much as the need to just vent and explain.

A Weekend at Notre Dame

“And there’s a magic in the sound of their name, here come the Irish of Notre Dame”  Ah, Fall! While not quite as awesome as summer (hands down my favorite season), fall is definitely clutch. Fall means bonfires, plaid button-ups, leggings, (seriously girls, what did we wear before leggings and yoga pants!?) riding boots, pumpkin flavored stuff, (confession: I have yet to try a pumpkin spiced latte *collective gasp*) gorgeous changes in scenery, and most importantly football. Yes, football. I’m a fan of all football and often find myself watching pre-season NFL games or old college…

Makeup Favorites Vol. I

Much like fashion, I love experimenting with makeup. I’ve worn a full face of makeup everyday since high school. I know, I know that seems a bit much but allow me to explain. I am fully capable, perhaps not fully comfortable (but working on it!), of going out into the great wide world without makeup, and I do it every once in awhile (for example: going to the gym in full makeup would not only garner some very confused looks, it would also end up a sweaty mess #nothanks). However, I find that waking up and applying makeup makes…
