summer vacation.

Hi lovelies.

I’ve decided to do something I’ve wanted to do for a while now. I’m going to take an entire month off from blogging – writing, reading, and hopefully even thinking about the blog world. No offense ;)

I just need a good long dose of “real life,” and a month off for the first time in 4+ years seemed appropriate. Hopefully I’ll come back feeling refreshed and ready to blog my little heart out once again.

Until then, feel free to keep up with me on Instagram if you’d like. I’ll see you in a month! xoxo

Helloooo and happy Monday!

I must admit I’m always a bit wary that I’m posting too much about Speakable – mostly because I never want to seem too self-promoting. BUT…Speakable is my baby and something I’m extremely proud of. So why wouldn’t I share it on a blog about my life, right?

scenes from the weekend.

Haven’t done one of these in a while!

This weekend was a great one – a perfect balance of productivity and fun.

Gotta rewind to Thursday because that’s where the weekend really starts, right? I headed down to Arrojo after work to get my blondes done by Nadia. If you’re looking for a colorist in

Sooo these snapshots are going to be another regurgitation of my Instagram feed, for the most part.

If I’m being completely honest, I’ve stayed in a bit of a blogging funk since taking a break a few months ago. I wasn’t really going to address it because I sort of can’t stand when bloggers are

Celebrating Fourth of July with Tostitos.

Fireworks, barbecues, warm weather, parades, and all things red, white & blue. There’s no denying that Fourth of July is one of the best days of the year!

As I get older I’ve come to appreciate Fourth of July more and more. It’s one of the only holidays that takes place in the summer, so

Keep Showing Up

These three words resonated with me so much when I saw them the other day…

I don’t know about you, but one of the biggest lies I tend to believe is that it’s better to isolate myself when things are, well…not so great. Sometimes even the smallest, dumbest of situations can make me want

Tropical Overnight Oats

Overnight Oats is (are?) one of those things I started eating when I began reading “healthy living” blogs about 5 years ago. After a while, though, I started to kind of be grossed out by the famous OO’s, so I stopped including it in my breakfast rotation.

Fast forward to today, and I’ve fallen in

I have a confession. My love for Instagram is competing with my dedication to GML.

In the past I would “save” photos for GML because – let’s be real – if you follow me on Instagram, it’s sort of redundant to see all of the same pix on the blog. BUT…that’s what I’m about to
