Goals on Goals: How I’m Goal Setting for 2018

Goals on Goals: How I’m Goal Setting for 2018

This isn’t a post about “how I’m going to get in shape” or “how I’m going to start eating healthy again”. In fact, I’m not really a believer in New Year’s resolutions, but I do believe there is something powerful in a clean slate. It allows us the opportunity to reflect on the past and hit the refresh button on life (which is definitely easier said than done). So in 2018, I decided I would actual set GOALS for myself. I’m not talking resolutions, I’m talking achievable things that I can work towards throughout this year and not feel like a complete failure by day three.

Looking Back on 2017

Looking Back on 2017

With a few hours to spare, I’m finally taking the time to share some of my favorite moments from the past year. 2017 has been a complete whirlwind between work, traveling, weddings, and everything else in between. They say a picture is worth 1000 words (#socheesy), so I’m not going to write any more of them. I recognize this post is totally personal (I gotta do me sometimes), but here is the recap of the past year from my camera roll.

Learning to Rest

Learning to Rest

Happy Saturday, people!

I’m currently writing this post from a cute little coffee shop in Vancouver, BC. (The Nutella Latte at Smart Mouth Cafe is on point.) The weather here has been the epitome of the PNW…rainy and dreary and dreamy (not really, anyone who knows me knows I kill for sunny weather).

I’ve been off work for about week now, and still have a week to go. And while this vacation has been much more chill than I anticipated, it’s been much needed.

Products That Pack A Punch

Products That Pack A Punch

If you’re a girl like me, then let’s have a chat. I used to NEVER wear makeup. Like I’m talking the I-put-on-mascara-in-10-seconds-and-walk-out-the-door type of girl. Lately, I’ve made it a goal to actually get a routine where I look somewhat “put together” in the morning. Amidst packing for one of the more (who am I kidding, probably the most) spontaneous trips in my life (more to come later!), I have realized I actually have products I swear by now! So, I figured I would give y’all the low down on some of the things that will actually make it in my suitcase (since I’m bringing a carry-on for 18 days) because these products pack a punch.

Why You Don’t Need to Save the World in Your Twenties

Why You Don’t Need to Save the World in Your Twenties

You went to college. You probably did a pretty dang good job while you were there too. You had a good GPA. You had killer extracurriculars. You got an internship or two. Then, you got a job offer. You graduated. You (*potentially*) travelled the world for a bit (because #backpacking). And then you walked into your first job and realized, “what the heck am I doing with my life?!”

The millennial struggle: I got a “great” job, but I’m not saving the world. I go to work and sit in a cubicle (or maybe even a closet) with Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint decks and emails and meetings…and I don’t think I’m changing anything.
