Beautiful Birthday Bag

October 30, 2017

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

The “Not So” Cold Shoulder

October 2, 2017

Happy Monday Guys!

How was your weekend? Mine wasn’t too bad. Saturday I grocery shopped, checked out a local art gallery, a vintage book shop, and a few antique stores. Sounds so cultured, right?! That’s how I picture adults spending their weekends in my head, so I figured I’d give it a go. I spent Sunday catching the premieres of the Blacklist and Empire that I missed last week, and I got some rolled ice cream. It was cool to see them make the ice cream, but it wasn’t game-changing. I think I’ll stick to my grocery store pints for now. Continue Reading

Go Gymless with Jessica Smith’s Total Body Balance!

September 18, 2017

Hey Guys. Happy Monday!

I’m still trying to find the right gym to join here in Atlanta. You’d think it’d be easy with there being so many gyms here, but it’s taking a lot longer than I expected. Ideally, I want to find a place that’s within a 5 mile radius of where I live, offers some strength training classes, and is reasonably priced. While I look for that mythical unicorn I’ve been making use of my apartment’s gym which is actually pretty nice, and my fitness DVDs.

I just did one on Saturday by Jessica Smith. Since it’s fresh on my mind I thought I’d do a review of it for this Go Gym-less series. Keep reading to find out my thoughts. Continue Reading

First Week on the Job!

September 11, 2017

Hey Guys! Happy Monday:)

Week 1 done! Can you believe it?! The first day was pretty awesome. I’ll start by talking about my commute. I couldn’t have asked for a better one. With the craziness that is Atlanta traffic, it took me all of 8 or 9 minutes to get to work (during rush hour). You can’t tell me my God isn’t real lol.  Continue Reading
