Practicing Gratitude

Pic 10

With Thanksgiving just one week away, I wanted to write a special post reflecting on the practice of gratitude, as well as sharing an outfit idea for Turkey Day. While I don’t discriminate against any of the holidays, Thanksgiving was one I never particularly looked forward to growing up. Of course, I loved all the delicious food and pie and time spent with family; however, unlike Christmas or Easter, I never anxiously waited for Thanksgiving or spent weeks preparing for it.

It’s that time of year again…Halloween! If you know me at all, then you know I absolutely LOVE costumes, as evidenced by my numerous costume posts. Unfortunately, Halloween always occurs during (possibly) the busiest time of year for me.

As much as I’d love to spend countless hours and craft supplies making an amazingly extravagant costume, I probably won’t be able to pull that off…and I know I’m not the only one. That’s why today’s post is dedicated to the best last-minute and DIY Halloween costumes on the web! Perfect for any busy bees out there or broke college students who can’t spend a fortune on anything store-bought. Continue reading “The Best Last-Minute Halloween Costumes”

Ah, the Fourth of July…I love this holiday for all the parades, decorations, fireworks, and patriotism, but I often struggle with putting together the perfect outfit. How can I effortlessly pair red, white, and blue without looking tacky? How can I do that when I don’t even own a lot of red or white?! If either of those questions sounds familiar, I’m hoping this post will help you. I rounded up old blog photos (some of them are super old, so forgive the bad quality) and am discussing ways you can turn these outfits into the perfect 4th of July look with pieces (hopefully) already in your closet.
