Summer Reading List Recommendations

Summer Reading List Recommendations

There is nothing better than being outside, laying by the ocean or pool, and reading a good book. Seth and I are going to the Dominican in two weeks and honestly that’s what I’m looking forward to the most, just sun tanning on the beach, reading a book. Recently (like within the past 6 months) I’ve read a bunch of books that I’ve absolutely loved and I thought it would be fun to share them with you guys and maybe you could add one (or all haha!) to your summer reading list!

Don’t worry, I won’t give anything away when I’m talking about the books…no spoilers here! But I’ll talk about why I loved each one and I’ll also include direct links to each! Also, if any of you are book worms like me, leave a comment letting me know some of your favorite books! I’m always looking for new recommendations!

May Favorites

Happy June friends!! How on earth is it already June?! I swear this year is flying by (although I feel like I say that every year). Since it’s the start of a new month, I thought it would be fun to start writing a monthly favorites blog post! I always love watching monthly favorites on Youtube and since I don’t have a YT channel, I  figured why not write a blog post instead!

It’s gorgeous outside today so I might write a bit, tan a bit then write a bit, tan a bit. Seth and I are going to a movie on the beach thingy (don’t really know what to call it haha!) tonight and I’m really excited for that! Apparently they’re going to have food trucks and bean bag chairs to sit on while watching the movie…um sounds perfect to me! Ok, enough of my rambling…let’s jump into these faves!

P.S. Everything I mention will be linked!! I hope you guys enjoy these new monthly fave posts!

The Best Youtube Workout Channels for a Full Body Burn

The Best Youtube Workout Channels for a Full Body Burn

Happy almost-Friday guys!! Since the official start of summer is creeping closer and closer, I’ve really been trying to workout regularly. Now, I’m not the kind of girl who gets super pumped to workout…I wish I was…but I’m not. I get really bored really easily and am the kind of person who after doing 30 sets of crunches, will look down at my stomach expecting to see nice chiseled abs. So with that being said, trust me when I say I’ve found the best youtube workout channels ever!! Clearly, I’m hard to please workout-wise and so the fact that I love these channels I’m about to talk about definitely says something! These channels have videos you can do literally anywhere, with or without weights and they will leave you feeling super sore the next day…which is a good thing!!

Now throw on your cutest workout outfit, grab that water bottle and let’s head into summer feeling like the best versions of ourselves! !

How I Went From 60 to 136k Pinterest Page Views in Just 2 Months!

How I Went From 60 to 136k Pinterest Page Views in Just 2 Months!

Pinterest has been around for ages. I remember being a freshman in college and going to the library to “study”…but really all I was doing was pinning cute pictures and quotes to my various Pinterest boards. I was obsessed with it back then but then all of a sudden I stopped getting on Pinterest all together and I’m still not really sure why. When I started my blog back in August, I thought the best (and only) ways of growing it were to post on Instagram and Twitter. boy was I wrong! From my experience (and from what other people have said), Pinterest is hands down the #1 way to increase your blog’s exposure and engagement.

Must Have Springtime Essentials

Must Have Springtime Essentials

This week, we are going to forgo our regularly scheduled Monday under 50 post and do something a little different! The other day, I was taking a flatlay of some cute spring clothes, jewelry and perfume and I thought “you know what, this would be a perfect blog post…why not talk about my favorite springtime essentials?!” Don’t get me wrong…I absolutely love winter but there’s something about spring that gets me really excited. Maybe it’s the fact that I can wear cute flowery patterned clothing, or that I can put on my favorite fresh smelling perfume. But I always get really excited when spring rolls around! Actually, the day after I post this, it will officially be spring! Woohoo!

How to Give Your Closet a Spring Cleaning

How to Give Your Closet a Spring Cleaning

There’s nothing I hate more than a messy wardrobe/closet/dresser/clothing storage room…you get the idea. (Jeez what a harsh way to start off this post!) I try my hardest to keep my closet neat and orderly, but during the winter months that kinda all flies out the window. When winter is over, my bulky sweaters are half on the rack and half on the floor, my closet is overflowing with booties and my winter coats are taking up half the closet which means all my other coats are on the floor. Giving my closet a spring cleaning is something I do every year because as you can see (or read), it is seriously needed.

I cleaned out my closet a few weeks ago and thought this might be a helpful post for some people! I can now walk in it and not be suffocated by the disorganized mess…yay! So if you’re closet needs a spring cleaning or just a little TLC, then you’ve come to the right place!

Self Empowerment Quotes for Women

Screenshot 2018-03-08 16.50.16

Happy International Women’s Day! “Here’s to strong women. May we know them, may we be them, may we raise them.” I’m so proud to be a women in today’s world! I am also so proud to have such strong women in my life…my Mom, my Sister, my Aunts, and my Grandma!

As women, we have made so many positive changes to the world and it’s only going to get better from here! We have strong voices, strong minds and strong hearts. We have gotten this far by building ourselves up and by building each other up. Since it’s International Women’s Day, I thought I would write down all my favorite self empowerment quotes for women. Hopefully these make you feel like a #girlboss…and make you want to conquer each and every day!
