Fitness Goals for 2017

Would it really be a new year if we didn’t discuss fitness goals?! It’s as cliche as it gets, but I figured I’d take this first week to discuss some of my personal goals. Now, I feel like I’m cheating here because technically I revamped my goals back in October. But I never discussed those here! (At least I don’t think I did….)

Christmas Gifts

I’m just going to come out and say that I hope you don’t think this is a tacky post. It’s not something I was planning on sharing on the blog, but I’ve been getting a ton of emails (and Snapchats/tweets) about where I got certain things. I shared a few snippets of what I got my family…



You’re hearing it here FIRST! Lilly has kept the day of the January After Party Sale a mystery…. but now I’m able to share it!!! It starts this THURSDAY, January 5! Set your alarms because this is a sale you won’t want to miss.

hello 2017

I’m so looking forward to a fresh start this year! I’m still in Florida with my family for a few more days so I’m not quite getting back into a regular routine just yet. (Feels like a bonus vacation to tell you the truth.) Every year I like to come up with a few goals…


2016 Favorites

On My Radar

I took off a bit more time than I had originally anticipated. I’ve just been having too much fun with my family and didn’t want to crack my laptop open. But I’m back today feeling completely refreshed and recharged… Even though I haven’t been on my computer as much this week, I still found quite a…


Giftable Books

For most places, it’s too late to order online, but that doesn’t mean that you’ve missed out on the gifting boat completely. My mom and I popped into Barnes and Noble yesterday and it was absolutely packed. They even had tables of people wrapping gifts. Every year at least one person on my list gets a book. (This year it’s my sister and she doesn’t read here so we’re safe… but I got her You Are a Badass.)
