Weekly Round Up

Friday, December 15, 2017

Happy Friday!

How was everyone's week?! Mine was actually pretty good! I had a goal this week to reach 700 followers on Instagram and I did with your help! I really want to take a second to thank every single person who follows and supports my blog. It means the world to me that someone actually cares and likes what I do, so thank you! This won't be the last time I say it. ☺️

Now for today's round up. I keep thinking about how there's only two weeks left to share amazing Christmas themed blog posts and it makes me sad! But, it has been giving me TONS of ideas for next year that I can't wait to try so it's all good. ☺️


Behind all of the decorations, sweet treats, and gift shopping is a ton of stress that people hold onto during the holidays. It's also super hard to avoid. However, there are ways to combat it! I loved this post from New Darlings because they share three awesome ways to rid your holiday stress!
