    I Joined A Book Club!

    This year I decided that it was going to be filled with taking small but mighty leaps. Ever since I was a kid I’ve had a love for reading and writing, I was at the library all the time in elementary and middle school. It was my little safe haven. I haven’t pick up a book in years, and I was slowly beating myself up for it because I haven’t been doing something I love. I can sit here and make a hundred excuses about why I stopped but I won’t, instead I will share with you the exciting adventure that I’ll be going on. I joined the San Diego…

    Brownie Pie with Leya + Jo.

    Baking holds a very special place in my heart. You know, the funny thing is I didn’t grow up baking, you would think right? I didn’t grow up being too involved in the kitchen at all actually. My mom actually hates cooking, she does it out of sheer necessity. You know, she has a husband and kid to feed… well not anymore, but you get the point. My mom is not a very good teacher either, she lacks tons of patience. Funny thing is, I’m quite the opposite. I LOVE to cook and bake. There’s this special feeling about creating something out of some simple ingredients that just makes me…

    Word of the day.

    Hey there! So glad you’re able to join me for another wellness Wednesday. I’m pretty excited to share this idea I’ve been having called ‘word of the day.’ Oh and just side note, I have never done this before. So we’ll be going on this journey together! I’ve been going through several ups and downs over the past few days and when I start to wind down and get in my negative feels, I try to nip it and tell myself one, that it will be ok and two, happy thoughts. I was not always like this, I was actually quite the opposite and would drag myself and those around…

    Let’s Flamingle!

    Hello hello! Happy Sunday loves! Just dropping by to share about the amazing event I attended yesterday evening, along with three reasons why if you’re a blogger (or thinking about starting a blog) you must attend these networking events! Taylor, the lovely mastermind and creator of CABE, hosted this event over in La Jolla at a rooftop with one magical view. Filled with the cutest vendors, fun photo shoots, and amazing bloggers and influencers, it really doesn’t get any better than this. This event reminded me a lot of the first event I ever attended. I went alone,  and that really pushed me to try and get out of my…

    On The Days I Don’t Want To.

    Hey hey hey! We’re officially doing this! I’m so excited to have taken the leap of faith and worked up my nerve to drop all my ideas in a jar and just spontaneously pick one. When I saw this topic was pulled out of the idea jar, I was immediately very nervous. I have to be honest, I get really scared of judgement when it comes to being a mom. I mean judgement is scary and hurtful when it comes to anything in life, but something about motherhood that really hits home. Do any of you moms out there agree? So here’s the topic: How to be a good mother…

    Why I’m On Instagram.

    Hey there! So glad you were able to swing by! If you’re heading over from Instagram then you know exactly what will about to go down, if not then let me fill ya in. Recently I attended an event hosted by the San Diego business babes (@sdbsuinessbabes), which if you’re a blogger and you haven’t attended a blogger/blogging event, then you definitely must because I guarantee you will learn a ton. Anyway, a good friend of mine Laura (@swellandsway) was a speaker at the event providing some tips on how to be intentional and successful on Instagram. One of the main things that stuck with me was, “why are you…

    4 Tips On Setting Realistic Goals

    Lately,  I have been thinking a lot of where I want to be in my life. Where am I going? What am I really doing with my life and talent? Well, I’ll tell you… I’m currently at a 9-5 job, sitting inside a cubicle, working in customer service. Although, I feel very grateful for the job I have and very proud of how much I’ve accomplished, I don’t feel very accomplished. I’ve been listening to the Coffee and Convos podcast every Monday (if you follow me on Instagram, then you have seen me RAVE about it) and it just keeps resonating in my head that I was put on this…

    Crazy For noosa!

    Hey friends! Super excited about today’s post because it involves something I’m irrevocably in love with! And that is noosa! For those of you who have no idea as to what noosa is, let me just change your life. Noosa is the richest, creamy, melts in your mouth, type of yogurt. A bit of history: Noosa is made with 100%fresh farm whole milk and no GMO’s ! This magical little treat is currently being put together in Colorado. Just a few miles away the lovely cows and the cow milk that is coming to the noosa headquarters, with the guarantee that everything is local and fresh. With just an added…

    Practicing Self Care Beyond Just My Body.

    Hey you! Welcome back! So so happy to be blogging again. Not that I left for months but a week is a pretty long time for me lol. I figured the best way to be back was with a wellness Wednesday and to chat about what I have been feeling lately. Today I wanted to dig in to self-care. We’ve all heard about this and know we should take care of ourselves by resting, taking it easy, eating healthy, etc. but at times I think we forget that taking care of our bodies also means our minds and  feelings. Self care revolves around physical, mental, and emotional practice, not just…

    Energy.

    Hey you, welcome back to another wellness Wednesday! Today I wanted to get a little more personal and chat about my diet/health along with energy. Where does my energy stem from, where do I focus that energy, and over all how to I keep it up. I haven’t been on the healthiest kick for such a long time now and I’m so tired of it. I always find myself wanting to try the hot new diet and I feel like those never work out for me. It’s so discouraging! Oh and fact is, I have no diet. And I really want to change that! What first comes to mind as…
