 Happy Thursday!

You know, I think I can honestly say I've had a really good week so far. I went to spin on Monday for the first time in forever and had the best time. I went to Zumba last night and of course I loved that! I was in a slump on Monday, but I got over it by Tuesday which is also great. I just feel like this week has been really good and it's only Thursday!

Today I want to share this really fun dress from Red Dress Boutique. I discovered this boutique last year I believe and have been obsessed ever since. Pretty much everything they carry is my style exactly and is so fun and girly! This dress is colorful, flowy, and a summer essential!

Gold N' Daisies Renee Floral Maxi + New Favorite Podcast

Tuesday, March 20, 2018

Happy Tuesday!

How is everyone doing today? Yesterday I discovered a new podcast thanks to one of the bloggers I follow, Hoang-Kim Cung! The podcast is called The Goal Digger Podcast by Jenna Kutcher. It's funny that I decided to listen to it this because I have never been a podcast person. I never really understood the point of them. That is until I found this one.

Jenna Kutcher is a total boss babe. It's so inspiring to hear someone take the time to provide tips that apply to other boss babes in whatever form they may be: business, life, etc. She also features other incredible people on her podcasts too which provides even more stories to share. If you haven't listened to one of her podcasts yet, you've got to check her out!

Head over to her podcast site here:

In addition to this new podcast finding, I wanted to share this floral maxi dress from Gold N' Daisies! This maxi dress has more of a slim fit but it really shows off your curves. Plus, the strappy back details give it just a little something extra. I totally just thought of the moment in the Legally Blonde movie where Elle gives Callahan her resume and he says: "It's pink?" and her response is "and it's scented. I think it gives it a little something extra...don't ya think?" 😂 But really, the Renee Floral Maxi is super flattering and I just love it!

Casual Work Outfit from Gold N' Daisies

Happy Monday!

I'm back! I know that I've been m.i.a. for about two weeks. Not this past week but the week before I went on a work trip to Hamburg, Germany. I have never been on an international work trip before so I wasn't sure what it would be like. I was hoping for a good amount of time to sight see but that was not the case! Almost everyday we were at the office at 9am and wouldn't get back to our hotel rooms until 9-10pm each night. I was definitely tired! I did get to do some sight seeing on Friday and show you guys a little bit of Hamburg!

On the last night of our trip I felt like I was getting a sore throat and sure enough that next day of travel was not fun. Thank you to the good ol' UK for having some Sudafed that made the 8 hour flight A LOT better. This entire past week I was sick which also put me behind. I didn't feel up to unpacking, doing laundry, all the things.

I'm finally starting to get back in my routine which includes my horseback riding lessons! Yesterday was probably my favorite lesson so far. I learned how to canter! It was SOO MUCH FUN I was smiling from ear to ear. I'm already counting down the days until next Sunday! Now that I've caught you all up, today I am sharing this super cute look from Gold N' Daisies. When I saw this look I instantly thought "how cute would this look at the office?!" Since it's finally starting to warm up around here, this sleeveless Peach Button Down Top will keep you cool and casual all day long. Plus, these Logann Navy Capris are so comfy, you won't know you're wearing dressier work pants!

Weekly Round Up

Friday, March 2, 2018

Happy Friday!

Today I am finally packing for my trip to Germany tomorrow. I am so excited!!! I went to Germany four years ago for a study abroad trip and had the best time. I am excited to go to a new city this time, Hamburg. I cannot wait to share tons of photos with you all while I'm on this wonderful journey for work.

Today's post features some incredible people (as always!). :) Enjoy!


I have always loved fireplaces. I hope to have one in my home someday! Shelby from Pretty in the Pines shared a stunning remodel of her fireplace that she recently did with the help of Home Depot.

As I was scrolling through BlogLovin' this week, I stumbled upon this blog post from Desert For Two. Christina gave me some serious organization inspo that I want to tackle once I'm back from my trip. I've been wanting to organize my pantry for a little for a while but just never did. It's officially happening!

I love blueberry muffins. They're my favorite! However, I've never heard of a blueberry muffin cookie before. Have you?! They look super delicious and the recipe is below!

Here's something else I've never heard of: cookie dough popcorn. I had to click on this post just to see what the heck was in it! If you love salty and sweet things, check out the recipe below!

I find it funny that after I found a recipe for blueberry muffins, I found this recipe for strawberry muffins. Bakers Royale shared a recipe that looks mouth watering!

I have been following along as Jennifer from Haute Off The Rack has her fun wedding in Cabo with all of her friends. The photo below is a super cute swim bridal look but she has a ton of other cute photos on her Insta right now. P.S. her latest blog post is about tips for a destination wedding!

Jennifer Lake does it again! I swear this girl has my dream closet plus dream passport! She shared the prettiest purple dress in France the other day that I had to share with all of you!

Lauren from Style Me Lauren shared probably one of my favorite dresses for Spring that I've seen yet! I'm definitely going to be looking it up shortly! The color is so fun and the tassel and embroidered details are so cute.

I've opened up a few times about my insecurities on the blog before. The biggest insecurity I struggle with is my body. I have good days and bad days and to be honest, last night was bad. I felt absolutely horrible and sat on the ground of my soon to be office and cried. I just wasn't okay. Chandler ended up making me feel better and so did Janelle Sutton. She shared the Instagram post below that really resonated with me. My mom was actually the same way. She was the tallest girl in her class and grew super fast. People would always make fun of her because of her height and it made her feel very insecure for a while. Janelle reminded me where true beauty really comes from and I honestly think I had forgotten about that. I'll always have my bad days, but I'm going to keep this post and caption on-hand for the days I need it most.

I hope you all loved this weekly round up post and I can't wait to share more with you from abroad!!!
