Currently Loving – August 4, 2017

Posted in lifestyle, Personal
on August 4, 2017

So. I said just a few days ago that I would be posting daily, or at least trying. Yesterday, I had planned a blog post, but I fell asleep before finishing it on Wednesday night… I'm off to a rocky start. But, I'm back and bringing back one of my favorite roundups on my blog – Currently Loving! I actually haven't done one of these posts in a long, long time, so I am excited to share what I'm currently loving!

Happy August! Today is the start of my blogging experiment, me blogging {nearly} every day for a month. I thought I would kick things off with something fun. I’ve partnered with JORD  to share my summertime style, and share my favorite JORD wood watch!

I am obsessed with this watch! The style I’m wearing is the Cora series – Zebrawood & Turquoise. JORD has many watch options on their site for both men and women. There are different grains of wood, different styles, and different colors – you’re definitely going to find a watch you love!

The Blog is Officially Two – Happy Blogiversary to Me!

Okay, wow. Happy blogiversary to me! My blog officially turned two on July 29th. It seems like my first blogiversary just happened, and I’m in shock that I’m already celebrating year two! This year, I feel like I have many of the same sentiments that I had last year. My blog is growing, I’m personally growing, but my blogging frequency isn’t as high as I’d hoped. While I am still working at that, I wanted to write a little bit of a reflection on how some things have changed over the last two years.

Foodie Adventures: Chicago

Posted in lifestyle, Travel
on June 8, 2017

In my last post, I wrote all about my amazing trip to Chicago. While I did highlight all aspects of my trip, I left out my favorite part… the food!

We tried a new restaurant every night, and every night I tried something I had never eaten before. I would continuously say I refuse to eat something, give it a try, and then enjoy it. So in the end I learned I should stop being so stubborn when it comes to trying certain foods because I will probably end up loving it.

If it sounds/looks like we ate a lot of food, it’s because we shared it all tapas style… but also, we really ate a lot of food. We tried new wines at every meal, so it’s safe to say this was the best foodie adventure I’ve had so far!

RPM ItalianThe first night there, we went to RPM Italian, which is the restaurant of Giuliana and Bill Rancic! The food here was amazing – definitely a great way to start a week in Chicago! We started with shredded Brussels sprouts and an incredible cheese platter. For the main course, we had Carbonara and Maine Lobster Ravioli. We got both, because we couldn’t decide and wanted to try it all!

Subscription Boxes You Need to Try

Posted in Fashion, lifestyle
on May 3, 2017

I’m always a little hesitant to try out new subscription boxes. You never know what you’re going to get. One thing I do like though, is receiving packages. There’s just something wonderful about being at work all day and coming home to a package full of new things. I decided to take some chances and try out some new subscription box services.

Here are the boxes I’ve been loving that you’re going to love too! Plus, there are a couple freebies when you use some of these links.winc Read More

The Instagram Debate

I’ve been a blogger for nearly two years now and I’ve been on social media for about 10. It’s crazy to think that I’ve been using social media for so long. I got an Instagram in college and I’ve  been obsessed ever since. For most of my time on Instagram, my profile was private but once I started blogging I made it public. I debated for a while if I should create an entirely new Instagram specifically for my blog, but in the end I decided on keeping my personal Instagram and adding in my blog content. Read More

Feeling Zen with Szen Zone

on March 29, 2017

Szen ZoneOne goal that I’ve set for myself is to read more books. It’s so common for people my age to stop reading books once they’re done with school, so I’m trying not to fall victim to that. One of my most recent reads was Szen Zone by Gary Szenderski. Szen Zone is a collection of stories which promote happiness and positive change – something I am always looking to incorporate into my life.  Read More
