Blogger Question & Answer

A while ago, I was challenged to do a "Blogger Q&A" by Jenn from BudgetGirLife.

I know I've been in and out of the blogging game, but this post challenged me to think about why I do what I do, and I'd love to share with you.

2016: A Reflection

I've seriously seen so many people talking about how 2016 was the worst year in history. Apparently it was so bad that people made a horror movie trailer of all the things that happened. (If you haven't seen it, here is the link.) I can't say that the past year was the worst or the best, but it definitely defined how I am going into 2017.

I know it's already five days into January, but I have been reflecting a lot on 2016 for the past week, and I wanted to blog about it so that I can have a clean slate going into this year.

Over the past year...

New Year, New Me (and a New Watch)

2017 is here, believe it or not. I recently posted a vlog about what my New Year's resolutions are (you can watch it here) but there were a few things that I didn't mention in my video because they are a little more personal and how to word them takes a lot of thought.

One of the big things I want to focus on this year is unplugging. I unplugged for one weekend in December while on a mission trip and it was the most freeing experience. I was doing good for myself and for the people I was with.

How can you unplug if you are a lifestyle blogger? I've thought about this a lot. I want to create an online schedule for myself and dedicate time to not being on the computer or my phone or my smart watch.

Winter Outfit of the Day Roundup

I'm never in a million years would consider myself a fashion blogger. Compared to my sisters, I have absolutely no sense of fashion (looking at you, Julia). But yet, that hasn't stopped me from posting my "outfit of the day" photos on Instagram.

Looking at all the #ootd photos that I take, I've started to notice a couple trends: I don't like having my whole face in the photo, I prefer neutral clothing, and (specifically this season) I'm digging the skirts and booties.

I've rounded up a couple of my favorite outfits for this post because I wanted to share with you what trends I'm rocking and where you can find your own pieces like mine.

The New Way to Straighten Hair: An Honest Review

Guys, I've officially stepped out of my comfort zone with blogging: I made my first vlog.

And not just any vlog... a review vlog. I was sent the Jade Ceramic-Tourmaline Hair Straightener from Irresistble Me (for free), which could not be any more perfect for someone who straightens their hair 8 days a week.

When asked to write a review of the product, I figured that I could use this as an opportunity to kick start my new YouTube Channel, which you can find here. Honestly, a blog post alone would not do this item justice.
