On My Radar

The best part of the week was definitely traveling to DC to speak to a couple of classes at Georgetown. It was an incredible honor. I was on the phone with my mom, walking around campus after, and I told her I wish I could write a letter to my freshman self to tell her…

Cute Workout Leggings

I honestly can’t believe how much I love working out now. It’s a huge motivator for me to know that I enjoy the classes. When I’m forcing myself to get out of the apartment and into the car, I may not be completely thrilled about going to work out, but I go. Because I know I’m going to feel great afterward.

Nominated for a Shorty Award

Yesterday I found such a surprise in my inbox. I was nominated for a Shorty Award, which features top people across social media. I’m so honored to be nominated for the lifestyle category but I’m up against huge influencers. That said… I know you guys are the best and very loyal and I wouldĀ love it…

Everyday Jewelry

Remember the days of layering tons of bracelets, wearing heavy statement necklaces, and stacking chunky watches? I loved it as much as the next girl, but now I’m all about simple really nice pieces.

I think that understated jewelry actually says a lot and right now I’m more interested in investing in nice things I can wear forever than stocking up on a ton of cheap things.

On occasion I will wear a fun statement (like fun earrings) with a basic outfit, but for the most part I’m keeping things super simple with studs, a necklace, a bracelet and/or watch, and maybe a ring.

7 Super Healthy Dinners Ready in 30 Minutes or Less

Even though Louisa has penned these for dinners, the recipes below are going to be perfect for lunches for me! Working from home is amazing, but I tend to get a little crazy around lunchtime. More often than not I don’t stop for lunch until I’m already hangry, so these will be great to turn…

Book Recommendations

Okay, I’ve officially ended my mini reading hiatus. I feel like nearly everything in life, reading is a habit. I know that I have to commit to reading for at least fifteen minutes a day and then after about a week or so I don’t even think about needing to read… I just do it….

On My Radar

This has been a week of very little sleep. Poor Teddy has been sick and so I have been up with him throughout the night just praying he feels better. Thankfully I think we’re at the tail-end of it, although he’s been loving his vet-ordered boiled chicken and rice diet. He’s just starting to show…
