Caring For An Older Cat

Wednesday, March 13, 2019

Happy Wednesday!

For those of you who may not know, last month we lost Oscar, Felix's brother. I have had Oscar and Felix since they were only a few months old and they've been with me through most of my life. When we lost Oscar we learned a few things about taking care of older cats that I did not know before. Now, what I learned would not have prevented us from losing Oscar, however, we now know things to look for in Felix as he ages.

10 Basic Stretches To Do Everyday

Tuesday, March 12, 2019

Happy Tuesday!

Lately I have been noticing that my back and legs have been feeling tight, which isn't a good thing. I used to be in a good stretching routine that would always help my lower back, hamstrings, etc. Recently I decided that I needed to do what was best for me and my body and get back into my stretching routine. Below is a walk through of my favorite stretching moves. These are great for anyone of any level. I'm not super flexible or anything of that sort either so don't worry if you aren't either!

The Perfect Easter Sunday Dress

Thursday, March 7, 2019

Happy Thursday,

Since I was little, I have always loved getting a new dress for Easter Sunday. Now, even though Easter is a month away, I wanted to go ahead and start showing some styles that I think would be perfect for Easter Sunday. 

When I think of an Easter Dress, I think of happy, bright spring colors such as yellow, light blue, pink, lilac, etc. and fresh silhouettes and appliques such as lace, embroidery, and tulle. With the day being one for celebration, I always love to find something fitting that is just as fun and conservative. Today's dress from Lulu's is a Fuchsia Lace Halter Skater style dress that is just darling for the spring season ahead!

My New Nightly Routine

Wednesday, February 27, 2019

Happy Wednesday!

Congrats everyone - you made it to the middle of the week! I always know that once we hit Wednesday, it's all uphill from there! This past weekend I felt super productive because I was finally able to shoot some blog content, do a riding lesson, and more. Some of this I feel like is because of my new nightly routine. I have been trying to tweak what I do at night in order to help me sleep better and to just relax and be happier overall. Below is a breakdown of my new nightly routine that could help you too!

The Best Horseback Riding Boots For Beginners

Monday, February 18, 2019

Happy Monday!

How has everyone been? I feel like it's been quite some time since I've really talked to you guys. I have a few life updates that I'll be sharing soon (I know I've said that before haha but I promise it's coming!) but in the meantime, I wanted to share my favorite horseback riding boots for beginners.

In a recent post I shared that I don't recommend investing a ton of money in gear right off the bat only because it is such an expensive sport. Initially, I didn't have about $300 to spend on tall horseback riding boots, but I could pull together $100 for a good all-purpose boot that I'll be sharing with you all today!
