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!

Home:

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!

Food:

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!

Fashion:

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.

Health/Inspo:

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!!!
