Weekly Round Up

Friday, March 29, 2019

Happy Friday!

It's been a while since I did a weekly round up post so I wanted to make this one extra fun! How has everyone's week been? This week I was playing catch up with my personal life since I went out of town last week through Sunday. It's always so nice to getaway but then coming back can be somewhat hard if you don't prepare well (like I didn't haha). However, all in all it was a good week with a fun visit from one of Chandler's good friends, tons of puppy park play dates, and riding lessons (including one today!).

How was your week? I'd love to hear in the comments below!

For those of you who might be new to my blog, every Friday I share a weekly round up post with articles and posts from some of my favorite media sites and bloggers! I always want to support as many content creators as possible. So, if you had a fun post that you would love featured in my round up, feel free to send it to me! I'd love to see!


Horseback Rider Interview Series: Joslyn Jakoubek

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

Happy Wednesday!

When I first started the equestrian section on my blog last September, something I wanted to do was to interview riders of many disciplines, ages, locations, etc. since there's so many incredible people within the equestrian community. Today, I wanted to launch this series with someone I admire so much. If you don't know her you will after today. Some of you might know her as Joslynj_equestrian on Instagram. Her and her horse Dolce are the cutest pair and I can't wait for you all to get to know her a bit better today!


Spring Get Active Challenge: Beach Yoga

Monday, March 25, 2019


Happy Monday!

I am excited to announce that this week I am launching two new series! The first one that launches today is my spring/summer get active challenge series. As a way to motivate myself (and hopefully others too) I wanted to launch a series that shows many fun ways you can get active outside and have fun. So today, grab a friend, a water bottle and your yoga mat and let's head to the beach for today's get active challenge!

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!
