The Curling Iron I’ve Been Using Since High School | …

I have been meaning write this post for quite some time now! Today’s talk: curling irons! If you have been following me or know me personally, you know that I try out new hair tools ALL THE TIME. I have tried tons and tons of flat irons, curling irons, and blow dryers – and while I do end up finding many that I like for different reasons, I do seem to find my favorites for more every day usage.

My junior or senior year of high school I started using…

How To Make Money Blogging

Alright…I know these photos have absolutely nothing to do with today’s topic – other than it’s about blogging and these are blog photos haha but I’ve been meaning to write this post for some time now & these photos turned out fun so here we are 🙂 

Something I get asked ALL THE TIME is how to make money blogging! And I’ve also been approached by so many people who don’t even know that blogging, being an influencer, whatever you do with your creative space, even generates income! Which is totally fine and I don’t blame you. Although this industry has been around for some years now…it’s also SO NEW. And it’s really being invented and changed as time goes. So many things about this business have changed since I started blogging myself, and I know that I will have to keep learning and adapting each year as it expands…

Where I’m Shopping For Furniture and What We’ve …

Exactly a week ago today was our first night in our new house! We have been here a week and although I do absolutely love our new house – we feel like we spent the first week ‘glamping’ out here haha. We sold mostly all our furniture with our old house, so we moved in with maybe 3-4 things and luckily our new mattress got delivered the day before we moved in so we’ve had a mattress on the floor to sleep on. But our appliances got delayed, we actually just got them a day ago, so we spent basically the first week with no fridge, freezer, washer or dryer and kept a cooler in the garage with my coffee creamer in it so I could still have my morning coffee. Dedication. I also have spent the past 24 hours…

Moving Update Plus Some Tips

Al and I decided to move super last minute as most of you here know. We weren’t seeking a new house or building, the opportunity just came our way. All that said, these past few weeks have been absolutely INSANE prepping our house for a move. Our current house has no garage but has a basement, so our basement has become a hoarder’s paradise…stuff everywhere haha. We rarely go down there and anytime I want to ‘hide’ something…down it goes. For those of you who know me personally, you know I’m very ‘type b’ aka not organized, not a planner, etc.  Every year of being a wifey I’m trying to improve in these categories  All that said, when we decided we were moving…I made a vow to myself that I would be a lot more organized in our new house. (I’m actually going slightly crazy and have all these fun organization ideas haha we will see how many of them I actually do). I know that as we bring everything we own over to a new house, things will get super messy and be all over the place, so I started some simple tasks in our current house that will make our move a little easier…

My $13 Ring Cleaner | Thumbs Up Thursday

As I am writing this post I cannot believe that I haven’t shared this goodness with you guys sooner! I remember the minute I got engaged, I went straight to my mother-in-law, (who is my go-to for tons of things in life – skincare, makeup, recipes, health tips, you name it) and asked her what cleaner I should buy to give my ring that extra sparkle when it’s gone through days of lotions, makeup, etc. For any of you engaged or married, you know how obsessed you are with your ring, especially at first, and I just wanted to clean that baby all the time haha! I was expecting to have to splurge on some steaming machine or something fancy…
