Words that ring very true to me right now. Sometimes i think the value of hard work and good work ethic are undervalued. In my opinion true work ethic and hard work are two of the most important and best values you can have today. No one should expect things to just happen and then complain when they don’t happen. Not happy with your current situation? Well then do something about it! Hustle!
I’ll be honest, I did have to learn the hard way and learn a few “life lessons” so to speak before I realized how true the above is. I’ll never take it for granted again! :)
No, your eyes are not deceiving you. You are seeing an outfit post here on the blog! It’s been a while since my last one, a little over two months to be exact. Keeping it casual for my “comeback outfit post” and wearing my favorite pair of sunglasses, which may or may not be covering up some major dark circles. Nothing like the upcoming 4th of July holiday to stir up some outfit inspiration, eh?
it’s almost time for 4th of July festivities! Are you as excited as I am? I think I plan on picnicking and catching a local fireworks show. How about you all? Well, it’s that time again. Here are my favorite things from around the internet this week! Wishing ya’ll a happy Friday and weekend!

This about sums it up ya’ll. Never give up on your daydream. Happiness in life is too important to give up on what you love. Like Journey oh so famously said “Don’t stop believing!”
Summer, summer, summer time is here! With every new summer season come new trends.
Here a few trends and “must haves” that I love that will help me get through this summer season we have ahead of us!
What are some of you summer must haves?
Beachy hair, citrus, sand, sun, surf, backyard BBQ’s, relaxing, unwinding, reading and stripes. This is what inspired the creative minds at PopSugar for their June #MustHaveBox . Basically…. “summer in a box.”
Peonies. They are in season and in major bloom right now. They also seem to be the “it’ flower to have at the moment.
If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you may have noticed that I recently spent a little time in Dallas, TX (two weeks to be exact) for a work trip. Despite Texas being my “Native State”, I had never been to Dallas. I spent most of my time working, however, I did manage to capture a few snaps…..
Well….I guess it’s official now. I”m old. 32 years old today folks! I’m currently in Dallas, TX right now on a work trip. Away from friends and family for my birthday, but, pretty cool to be spending it in such an awesome city! I’ve always loved that my birthday also falls on Memorial Day weekend; so fun. So, guess I’ll go take myself out for dinner and glass of champagne. The celebrating will begin when I arrive home though!
No matter what they consist of, hauls are always fun! It’s been a while since I shared the fruits of a shopping trip with you, so I thought I’d share a nice recent beauty haul with you! Continue reading
