    *This post is going to be a bit different. While creating my blog last year and planning my content for this year, I decided to reflect on reasons why I love and follow the blogs that I do. And the common thread between them all was that they were about more than just fashion. They would go deeper, and share meaningful content that I enjoyed reading. Outfit posts are great but I’ve always known I wanted to go deeper than that (hence why I launched this as a LIFESTYLE blog rather than just a style blog). In 2018, I want to stay true to that mission and bring you more meaningful posts besides just my favorite coat right now. So let me know what you guys think about this new direction over on instagram or facebook!

    So today’s post will be all about how to get what you want in 2018 and beyond. We all set goals and resolutions every year but I’d bet less than half of us actually follow through with those goals. So today, while we are still at the beginning of what could be the greatest year of our lives, I want to get into my top tips to get what you want in all aspects of your life and make the most of the cards you’re dealt. So without further ado, let’s do this.

    This post is a day or two late, but better late than never, right? I think it’s so important to reflect on the previous month or year and really go into the new year/season with purpose and intention. Our experiences are what make us who we are, and so looking back and remembering the great times (and not-so-great!) is crucial for our own personal growth. So today, on the second day of the new year, I want to reflect on my many peaks and valleys of 2017. If you guys aren’t familiar with Peaks and Valleys, you basically reflect on the good (peaks) of the year and the not-so-good (valleys). I love reading posts like these because it shows a more personal side to people that you don’t always get to see, and can give you some good ideas for resolutions and goals for your own life! So, let’s get into my 2017 reflections shall we? Read more
