Wednesday Roundup: My favorite leggings

The Wednesday roundup is back! I’ve concluded that most things I do on my blog are going to be sporadic. I cannot promise there will be a roundup every week, but I’ll try my best. You guys, I’m trying my best here! OK, but I can be better about planning ahead. That’s half the battle.

The Instant Pot Diaries: Let’s make some chicken wings

Y’all. February is flying. I just looked at the calendar and realized I hadn’t blogged in 11 days (whoops) and have plenty of drafts. I just have to hit publish! What am I doing?! Anyway, I wanted to get back into the swing of things by sharing the chicken wing recipe I used on Super

Always easier said than done, but it’s a start

Remember this post? It’s been a little under two weeks and I can say that I’ve started to make little changes to my life, but nothing overly significant. That’s probably best though, right? Too much too quickly and it’s probably easier to get burned out. A gradual approach is probably best. (I also said probably

Valentine’s Day looks to love

Oh, Valentine’s Day. It’s a day that has taken many forms over the years for me. In fact, I’ll never forget the “V(odka) Day” celebrations of college. Ah, memories. I’ve honestly never disliked Valentine’s Day. It’s always been a day to share appreciation and love for those around me, whether that be friends, my family,

A couple of weeks ago I published a blog on masking my scars with makeup. I was absolutely floored by the response, and was so humbled by the many who reached out to share their stories with me. From burn scars to acne scars to everything in between, there are many of us dealing with

What I wore this week: January 22-28, 2017

I’m back! I’m back! And I’m here with another weekly roundup of what I wore. Although, I realized now that I accidentally labeled last week’s post as this week’s. My bad. I’ve corrected the issue, but why did no one tell me I was ahead an entire week?! More so, how did I get an

Wednesday Roundup: Deals of the day, Jan. 24

Happy Wednesday, friends! I got to talking with my the high school cheerleaders I coach yesterday about shopping/spending money. One thing led to another and we specifically onto the topic of how to shop in a way to stretch your dollar and make it go further. It was fun to listen to them talk sales,

Instant Pot Diaries: Zero to 100 real quick

Look what has returned! The Instant Pot Diaries! And because this is the second edition, I took the singular diary and made it plural. Big day around here, folks. Big day. If you read last week’s post, you know I tried spaghetti and meatballs for my very first meal. It was an experience. So much

What I wore this week: January 15-21, 2018

Hello, hello. Welcome to my weekly roundup of what I wore. There are a few reasons I’ve decided to do a weekly roundup, and I’ll share those reasons with you now: I recently got an Echo Look for my closet and it’s really helpful in documenting what I’ve worn. It’s not quite the same, but

Masking the scars: My favorite makeup go-tos

As you may or may not know, I was in a serious car accident about two years ago. The car I was in was struck by a drunk driver going nearly three times the legal speed limit. Our car was torn open as a result, and the gas tank exploded right by where I was
