New Year, New Pressures

January 1, 2018

Happy Monday Guys! And Happy New Year!

I was on FaceTime with my sister earlier and she joked how things with 2017 on it already seem so outdated. Out with the old, and in with the new! Onward to 2018.

A new year brings with it the excitement of new dreams, new opportunities, and new adventures. Vision boards are made with references to health, peace, and prosperity. This is going to be the year I finally…fill in the blank – start my own business, travel more, meet the love of my life, lose those 10 pounds, etc. There’s nothing wrong with any of that.

Goodbye Winter Breaks, Hello Holiday Parties!

December 18, 2017

Hey Guys. Happy Monday!Christmas is but a mere week away and I think I’m all set. Wait, how many siblings do I have again? I kid, I kid. But this Christmas is a little different for me. It’s my first one not being in school. Translation: goodbye 3-week long winter breaks and hello holiday parties. I guess this is what adulthood feels like. I’m not mad at it lol. Continue Reading

Chi in Chi!: Eats and Outfits

November 27, 2017

Happy Monday Guys! As promised, I’m sharing details about all of the yummy food I ate while I was in Chicago.

Lyfe Kitchen

After our first full day in Chicago we went to Lyfe Kitchen for dinner, which was conveniently located right across from our hotel.

I got the Thai red curry bowl which I quite enjoyed. It comes with eggplants, broccoli, peas, peppers, and wheatberries in a coconut curry sauce. You can add a protein to it if you like, but I left it as is. I’m putting this on my list of things to remake at home for sure. It seems like it would be super simple. I also got a pomegranate lemonade to go with it which was a great choice. I’m always down for pomegranate lemonade and this did not disappoint. Their baked sweet potato fries with garlic parmesan and chipotle mayo were also a crowd pleaser. Continue Reading


Beautiful Birthday Bag

Happy Monday Guys!

How was your weekend?

My weekend consisted of getting some impractically long braids (but they’re so pretty), trying to do a little shopping to refresh my fall/winter wardrobe (didn’t buy anything), and working on a blog post for a health news writing gig (sort of).

As it turns out, I did end up baking for the lunch we had at work this past Friday. Surprise, surprise lol. The owls made me do it. I made spiced sweet potato muffins, and broke out my owl muffin tins and owl jar for the occasion. People seemed to really like it.  Continue Reading


To Bake or Not to Bake…

October 23, 2017

Hey Guys!

Was the weekend good to you? I certainly hope so. It was pretty good to me. I did more research on stuff to do (and of course places to eat) while I’m in Chicago. I can’t believe my birthday is less than two weeks away. I’m so ready!  Continue Reading


A Hint of Fall

October 16, 2017

Happy Monday Guys!

How was your weekend? Great I hope. Mine was actually really good. Despite a slow start on Saturday I managed to run some errands and do some exploring. Sunday I meal prepped, ate some donuts, and worked on developing a budget (so exciting, I know). I also took out my camera and took some practice shots  around my apartment complex. I never told you all, but I finally took the leap and bought a DSLR over the summer. It wasn’t until the beginning of this month that I got around to taking pictures with it. It’s a shame, I know, but time has been moving so quickly! Continue Reading
