Joe and I are huge Alabama football fans. Anyone who knows us, knows that.

Our Saturdays revolve around football, and I won’t be caught dead without some BAMA gear.

I gotta represent, ya know?!

So today I’m showing you a couple of my favorite looks featuring two great pieces from Flying Colors.

Flying Colors designs feminine, fashionable, flirty and fun clothing for all of us women who want to support our teams while looking cute and put together!

Because there’s more to college football style than oversized t-shirts and baggy hoodies!

You can represent your favorite teams with custom Toms like these that I got from Etsy that I’m OBSESSED WITH! Roll, Tide, Roll!

The Perfect Way To Find New Fall Frames

fall frames

Here in South Florida, you need your sunnies year-round, even in the fall. Because without them,  there’s absolutely no way you can drive, or be outside without being blinded. I swear, I have at least five different pairs with me at all times in my car, and at least two more somewhere in my purse. So yea, I think it’s safe to say, I love a good pair of frames!

But as much as I need and love wearing sunglasses, I also refuse to spend a fortune on them, because, no….I’m not a millionaire! I also have a really bad habit of sitting on my glasses and breaking them into tiny pieces  which means I’m definitely not dropping $200 on a pair that will soon be killed by my bootayy. 

These are my latest! Aren’t they cute! I’m slightly obsessed with them.

5 Bad Reasons Why People Stay At Jobs They Hate

stay-job-hate

There was a time not too long ago when I was waking up every single day in complete  agony over the thought of going into work. Sounds miserable, huh?

Well it was, and as much as I hope you’re not going through something similar, the sad reality is that SO MANY PEOPLE ARE.

Too many people hate their jobs, and it makes me upset just thinking about it because we spend too much time at work to hate it.

Now if you follow my blog, then you know that I got myself out of that situation, but it wasn’t something that happened overnight. It was something I worked on relentlessly for months, and eventually, I got exactly what I wanted. I got a new job doing something that I love, and I’ve never been happier.

So when I look around and see how unhappy people are at work, I ask myself, “why the heck do they stay?” And these are some of the answers I’ve come up with.

Learning About New Careers: 1 in 100 Million Web Series

Thank you, Kronos, for sponsoring today’s post! #WorkforceStories #1in100MM #ad

Learning About New Careers

One of my absolute favorite things to do on this blog is to share different careers with you guys, and that’s exactly what I did with my very first Career Series, if you remember.

There are SO MANY different and INTERSTING careers out there, and most of them we have zero idea about.

For the most part, we grow up thinking about just a few careers. We think about being teachers, doctors, lawyers, and business people (whatever the heck that means).

But how about the other thousands of different careers out there?!

I think they’re definitely worth exploring.

Why We Need To Do A Bit More Monotasking

monotasking

I’ve been dealing with abnormal amounts of anxiety lately. I don’t know if I’ve talked about my anxiety a whole lot on the blog before, but over the past few years I’ve been dealing with crazy amounts of anxiety.

I think a lot of it stems from my blogging and the fact that I want to do five hundred million things and there’s never enough time. I spend the whole day thinking about all the things I want to do with this blog, and then I get home and I’m exhausted. So instead of being productive, I do nothing but snuggle on the couch and watch mindless tv and then I feel anxious because I feel like I should be doing stuff.

It’s a vicious cycle.
