Good morning loves! I am just swooning over these army green pants (they have a stretchy waist line) and this frill shirt!
If you have not heard about Nickel and Suede you are missing out. These earrings have changed my life. No joke, I have 4 holes in each ear… I use to be obsessed with earrings but they just kept pulling on my ear lobs and I HATE that look.These earring are flexible and light weight, I sometimes even forget I even have them in!
These pants and shirt are from Shop Scoobie and my shoes of course are Franco Sarto <3 This is the perfect Fall transition outfit. I have on my to-do list this weekend to unpack my Fall/ Winter bin and go through some things. I think I enjoy cleaning out my closet more than ever when it comes to this time of the year.
You guessed right, today is my birthday! The big 2-5, I feel like I literally just got use to saying I was 24. I have heard more times than not that this year is going to be the best one yet, or either I am going to have a mid life crisis. Whatever god throws at me I think I will be okay. Hey! I get to rent a car hassle free also I have heard, ha! Be sure to keep scrolling to find out more about the birthday girl. Below I am sharing 25 lessons I have learned in the last year. (Dress and Shoes Linked Below)
Twenty- Five is a year to challenge myself to really look at life with purpose. I find myself getting caught up in planning my future I forget to be in the moment. I get anxiety just thinking about it. We all are guilty of this. Yes we need to plan for the future in a way but my goodness I find myself focusing on that more that anything.
I AM OBSSESSED WITH THESE SHOES.
25 things I learned upon turning 25!
Take care of yourself first, your mind, body and soul.
Surround yourself with people who love you, respect you and value you.
Some people just really suck.
Good things happen when you work your butt off!
When a new opportunity comes you way, take it. You never know until you try.
Saving money is hard! One of my goals is to improve my budgeting habits.
Never be afraid to ask, the worst thing they will say is no.
Find time to just have fun!
Don’t waste your time on something you don’t like. Life is way to short.
Fine peace within yourself.
Grocery shopping is my happy place, and so is shopping for anything else! Hence #7… budgeting…
Be different, god chose all of us to have a talent and purpose. Find that and run with it.
You can always go back home.
Kombucha is life.
Family really is everything. I am so thankful for my crazy loving family.
I love being a dog mama.
Don’t judge a book by its cover. You always hear that but with the way social media is now a days you see so much and think so much.
You can’t control everything.
Surround myself with like minded people.
Brunch is the best part of the day (on the weekend)
I love going to bed early. Sleep is so good for the soul.
Taking time for myself.
Be proud of who I am, who I have become and am still becoming. 20s are not easy. Everything happens for a reason.

I don’t know about you but I sometimes bite off more than I can chew. I often try to combine too many changes, work, social life and my hobbies. So today I am sharing with you 10 Healthy habits to create more balance in your day-to day life.
Go for a walk in the Morning and at night for 30 minutes at least, or more!
Walking for me in the morning or after work has been a way to let out negative energy and try hard not to interact with my phone and disconnect!
Drink water throughout the day!
It is recommended to dirnk eight- 8 ounces a day. Some people who hate water, so for an alternative grab those flavored packages that are no calories and drink away!
Cut back on coffee and pop and replace it with a fruit.
This one I am still working on, when a Dr.Pepper is taunting me in the fridge at work it is hard to say no.
Write in a journal whether that be about your day, the good the bad or a to-do list of what you want to accomplish.
Writing in a journal has been a way for me to really escape and turn to god about my problems, accomplishments and goals!
Create a go-to playlist.
Create playlist that you can listen to in the car, work and working out! I find that mixing music up for different daily activities keeps my mind clear. I personally recommend Spotify. Andrew and I have a subscription.
Stretch once or twice a day will make a difference. Especially if you sit at a desk all day, find time to walk throughout the day whether that be on your lunch or even to get fresh water!
Setting goals gives you long-term determination and short- term motivation!
Get plenty of sleep!
We all need plenty of sleep it helps us rejuvenate and boosts our immune systems.
Being a creaitve and not working a creative job, I find myself always brainstorming my next big idea. My family thinks I am crazy with some of the things I come up with. It is always healthy to always be thinking of things that interest you.
Make free time once a week.
I know it sounds hard sometimes, but when you create at least 30 minutes to an hour for free time you can plan what you want to do with that free time. Whether it be grabbing coffee with a girlfriend or taking a drive.
