10 Easy Ways to Crush Your Commute

10-easy-ways-to-crush-your-commute

I have a one hour commute to work every day, and I’m not going to lie to you, it’s terrible. But that’s Miami! There’s traffic anywhere you go, and there’s nothing you can do about it. I absolutely hate it because I have way too much anxiety to be stuck in a car for two hours a day. There’s just nothing good about it! But since I can’t change how far I live from my job, I’ve been working on making my drive to work more enjoyable, so here are a few of my favorite ways to totally crush your commute! 

1. Grab your coffee!

Coffee-to-go is part of my morning routine these days and I’m absolutely loving it. Before I leave the house, I fill up one of my Dixie® To Go cups and in a couple of minutes, I’m out the door!

tips-for-living-a-healthy-lifestyle

In my early twenties I can honestly tell you that I totally took my health for granted and I know I’m not the only one. Unfortunately, it seems that when we’re young we don’t really pay too much attention to how healthy we are. We’re in college, hanging out with our friends, in the dating scene, and the last thing on our minds is our health. But it certainly IS important because the habits we start forming in our twenties will usually stay with us throughout our adult life. So how do you want to live it? If you’re like me and committed to being at the top of your game, here are five tips for living a healthy lifestyle in your twenties.

For the longest time, I’ve wanted a home office, and today, I’m SO EXCITED to share what it looks like with you guys! It’s still a work-in-progress, but I finally have a dedicated workspace where I can sit down and get some stuff done! It’s just a little corner of my bedroom, but I love it so much and I couldn’t have done it without some help from my friends at Staples and their Copy and Print department.

So let’s talk about this. First things first, I decided that it was finally time to get myself some business cards. And if you’re a creative business owner or a blogger, I highly recommend you get some too. The process was super simple, and that made me happy because I don’t have time for anything complicated these days. I  just downloaded a business card template from Creative Market, edited it in Photoshop, and then uploaded it onto the Staples website and placed my order. The next day, they were ready for pickup!

7-must-haves-for-outdoor-entertaining

Joe and I have been in our new house for almost a year now (how crazy is that?) and since we’re officially grown ups, we’re looking forward to doing a lot of entertaining over the next couple of months.

As excited as we are though, outdoor entertaining is a first for us. Up until we moved into our new home we never really had a backyard, so outdoor entertaining was never our thing. But now we DO have a yard, and I can’t tell you how excited we are to get it all fixed up!

Since I’ve been doing some research lately, I thought I’d share my 7 must-haves for outdoor entertaining. Here’s what I’ve decided we can’t live without.

I’m the worst when it comes to self-care.

I mean, I’m a serious hot mess these days because I’m so ridiculously busy.

I’m legit asking myself questions like, “Okay, am I going to shower today or get to that blog post that’s due?”

That’s how bad it is right now.

It’s super embarrassing to admit it, but I’m totally neglecting myself lately. I’m focusing on meeting my business goals which is great, but if I’m physically and mentally exhausted all the time, how can I possibly produce quality work?

Guys!! I finally started setting up my at-home office, and I’m LOVING how it’s coming along! How freaking cute is this chair my mom bought me?! Best. Momma. Ever.
