workday mornings more enjoyable

If you’re the kind of person who wakes up without an alarm at 5:00am and skips to the kitchen to have a cup of coffee with a huge freaking smile on your face, well…good for you! But that’s definitely not me. I am NOT a morning person, never have been. But I’m happy to say I’m working on it, because I’m on a mission to make my workday mornings more enjoyable. So here are few things I definitely recommend doing that I’ve found to be helpful.

Pick Out Your Clothes & Accessories The Night Before


I used to think that people who did this were crazy. Like, come on…who has time to pick out their clothes the night before and set it aside in a nice little corner all ready for the next day?! Well, I MAKE time for that now, because you know what I DON’T have time for? Spending 30 minutes in my closet trying on 15 different outfits because nothing looks good and I have zero idea what to wear. That’s the fastest way to make me a giant stress ball, and I’m all about ZERO stress in the mornings.

Wear To Work Wednesday

  1. J Crew Double Breasted Blazer //Okay but really, how freaking gorgeous is this blazer?! I straight up need this in my life. It’s a little pricey because it’s J Crew, but I’d think of this as a total investment piece. Look how baller this chick looks! It’s exactly the blazer to pair with some nice jeans on casual Friday.
  2. Felicity & Coco Seamed Pencil Dress//Do I really need to say much about this dress? Definitely a dress that says, “hi, I’m a professional AND I have amazing style.” Super classy and this color is to die for.
  3. J Crew Tissue Long Sleeved T-Shirt//Everyone needs like 500 white tees in their closet. No joke, a white tee goes with anything and everything. I love this one from J Crew because it looks totally comfy, but still looks polished and put together. Pair it with some white pants like the model over here and you’re good to go!
  4. Kate Spade Cedar Street Maise// LOVE the orange color! I think it’s fun, it’s vibrant, and totally appropriate for Summer. Helloooooo statement bag!

awesome boss

Millennials are having a hard time with management these days.

We’re upsetting a lot of people, and our bosses don’t know what to do with us.

But it shouldn’t be so hard.

We just wanna go to work, do a good job, and have bosses that understand and respect us.

That’s it. Is that asking for too much? I don’t think so.

So what makes an awesome boss?

Here are a few things, for starters…

The Age Old Question- Money Or Happiness

money or happiness

Hope you guys enjoy today’s guest post! Let us know what you think!

I’m very sensitive when it comes to my dreams. My dreams usually come and go and after a few minutes of waking up, I don’t think about them anymore. Yet there are always a few that are exceptions. Those are the ones I pay closer attention to. Those are the strong ones that like to swirl in my head for days at a time where even a short 5-minute car ride has me thinking about them. Those are the ones where I feel like the universe is trying to talk to me.

Why I’m Actually Happy My Page Views Dropped

page views dropped

The title of this post seems a little off, right?

I mean yea, I feel a little weird typing those words, but if I’m being really honest, it’s the truth.

In my most recent blog income report I told you guys this was happening. I told you that I used to get TONS of traffic via Pinterest, and that ever since the new Pinterest algorithm went live, my page views had been suffering.

Well, I think it was a really good thing for me, and here’s why…

It made me realize that I can’t simply rely on popular posts

I’ve been blogging for over 4 years, and to this day, this post –> How To Be Rich In Your Twenties, has been my MOST READ POST. I get it!  I guess a whole lot of people want to learn how to be rich, so this post has done tremendously well in terms of traffic generation. It was getting shared on Pinterest hundreds of times a day, and I was a happy camper. But you know what happened? Like I already said, Pinterest traffic went down and suddenly this super popular post wasn’t doing as hot as it used to which meant my blog traffic was suffering big time. But I’m glad it did, because it made me realize that I can’t just ride on the success of a few popular posts. Instead, I need to have A LOT of popular posts so that in case one of them loses momentum, my blog traffic doesn’t suffer as much. Which leads me to #2..

Date Night With Yourself

I’m an absolute crazy nut these days!

I’m working full-time, managing my blog, promoting my new book, and still trying to find time to have a social life while not neglecting my hubby (or my cat).

I’m dead tired all the time, and finding that me-time that I desperately need is pretty much impossible.

But I’ve decided that I need to make having me-time a priority. I need to spend more time focusing on relaxing, recharging, and taking my mind off of the five hundred thousand thoughts that are constantly going through my head.

Joe was out working last night so I took the opportunity to have a date night…with MYSELF…and OMG it was everything!

So here are a few tips for having the perfect date night all by yourself! Enjoy!
