Holiday Vision Boards

Apparently, Blogmas is not my forte this year. If you participate in blogmas/vlogmas you create content everyday in December running up until Christmas. It’s December 11th and this is my third blog post of December. Oops! However, it’s officially the double digits of December so I think it’s time to take this holiday business seriously. I’m…

stop feeling guilty for doing something for you.

I wasn’t feeling it yesterday. I wasn’t feeling it the day before either. Sometimes I’m just not feeling things and I always feel like shit about it. I should be an awesome person today and I’m not, what’s wrong with me? Last night I had some alone time and decided to take advantage of it….

Welcome to Blogmas 2017

Happy December, For the past couple of weeks I have been seriously debating if I wanted to take on this Blogmas venture again this year. I woke up this morning and the first thing I thought was “December…Christmas….Blogmas!” & here we are. What you will find from my blogmas: Artsy fartsy holiday goodness, yummy in your…

I wore crazy lipstick colors & here’s what I learned.

My secret is out… I’ve always been fascinated and totally jealous of women who can pull off badass lip shades. I’ve always been pretty safe when it comes to lipstick, whenever I put red lipstick on I want to take it off as soon as possible. I definitely stick to light pinks and nudes when…

Increasing your motivation while working from home.

Dreaming big is one thing, being motivated and working toward those goals is another. Working from home is pretty fantastic, it comes with all of the perks of working on your own time, taking your lunch when you please (actually eating whenever you want) and in the comfort of your own home. You are your…

I’ve been hiding from you.

There’s a huge part of my image that I have been stereotyped as my entire life, which I have been able to live with up until I reached adulthood and have become a creative for a living. Always seen as the “good girl” sweetheart from Utah. This is not inaccurate. I am careful with my…

Walk with fear

During my travels I have been listening to many audiobooks. You may have heard of the award winning Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert.  Gilbert also has an incredible book, Big Magic, which is all about creativity and creative living. There is a part of her book which I found most inspiriting, the difference between being fearless and…

Here’s why it’s important to get the hell out of your hometown.

It isn’t easy but it’s worth it. Since graduating high school from St. George, Utah in 2010 I have moved around a lot and currently planning another move. Although I have lived in St. G a few times as “pitstops” I have lived in Portland, Oregon…San Jose Del Cabo, Mexico…Denver, Colorado….Burlington, Vermont….San Felipe, Mexico….and currently planning…

Here’s why the scale is a piece of shit.

Right now, I weigh the most on the scale that I have weighed in my life.  My 5′ 3″ body is currently 165. My “normal” is 150 and my thinnest? 129. Right now, I also believe I’m the healthiest I have been in a long time and it’s taken me until recently to recognize that. I…

Girl talk, period.

I have been a little hesitant to create this post but talked myself into it because being a woman has its challenges and we have to stick together! I have also made the decision to start creating more personal posts about womanhood called “Girl Talk” which includes confidence, health and beauty, fashion, career and success,…

Opening Our Minds To Creativity.

Creativity is often and unfortunately pushed to the side as something that is not the most important skill to have in our daily lives, education, and careers. Creativity has become the green beans of the Thanksgiving meal when it should be seen as the turkey (or, the cherry pie) However, creativity is much more than…

The Parade of Homes | Part Two | Color, Detail, and Minimalism.

I love color in home decor and think this year I saw the best color schemes throughout the homes. A popular color throughout the homes were GOLD. If you know me you know I love bright colors paired up with gold so I was nearly drooling throughout most of these homes. Even if it wasn’t…
