Remain True to Your Goals


I have finally made my transition to working full-time and it is kicking my butt. Thankfully, we had a three-day weekend in observance for Memorial Day and I was over-joyed for the extra time to get things done around my house.

With this transition being so hard, it has really opened my eyes to just how much productivity matters. I went from having a lot of free-time to do all the things I need to get done to having almost no time at all. Needless to say I have been researching ways and downloading apps to keep myself in check. If you know me, you know that I get stressed out very easily. It is very important to figure out ways to keep my stress levels low.

One of those things being making time for the gym. I was no gym-bug to begin with but going to the gym was something that I was enjoying. I can’t let myself lose sight of that goal I set because I’m too tired all of a sudden. Not to mention the importance of physical activity when working a 9-5 desk job. One of the goals through working on my productivity throughout the week is going to be making it to the gym at least twice a week, working my way up from there.


My favorite sports bra while working out is this one pictured from Victoria Secret. It is long enough to where  you can wear it as a cropped top with leggings and has a high enough neck line that it is not too revealing. I loved it so much that when they went on sale I got all the colors I could find. I paired the outfit with my Gymshark Fit Leggings and I really love the look. I have worn this top with high waisted leggings as well and I like that look even more. I am not one who likes to show a lot of skin but these tops show the perfect amount!



I hope y’all are doing well with the goals you have set for yourselves in early 2017. Were just about at the half way mark, the perfect time to re-motivate yourselves and keep pushing towards your goals no matter what changes in life have occurred. Leave a comment below letting me know how your weekend was, I’d love to hear all about it!

The Gift of Time for my Graduate

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I recently graduated college. It has been a long road for me because I didn’t finish in the normal four years. However, I ended up being extremely grateful for the extra time. It really gave me a chance to continue to learn about myself and what I wanted for my future.

When Jord Watches reached out to me a little over a month ago, I thought, what perfect timing! Not only was I extremely honored to work with this company, but I was able to relate to Jord’s present Mother’s Day/Graduation campaign on a personal level, as a graduate. I know I would love a timeless gift like this for my own graduation and with a huge thank you to Jord, I now have one.

I spent time learning about the product and I am genuinely impressed with the beautiful details of the time piece. It is such a unique watch and the trend seems to be taking over across social media. This company has beautiful watches for both men and women. I had loads of fun styling mine. I found that this watch went with any occasion. I wore mine in a beautiful sun-dress on a gorgeous day or just running around, doing my errands/attending classes for the day.

I have the  Koa & Rose Gold, Cora Series and I absolutely love it. I have gotten so many compliments on it. It really is such a cool watch. The face is rose gold with beautiful swarovski crystal time markers and my favorite feature, an open back so you can see the beautiful make-up of the watch. My boyfriend, Nick was very jealous! I’ll definitely be back to shop around for him one day. Having my own Jord, I can attest to the quality of the piece and I believe it is something you can keep forever. And who doesn’t love the wood?! I love the look.

Jord Watches was kind enough to hold a contest for my readers that ends tonight at 11:59 PM. I know I have posted about it quite frequently already via  instagram but there is still time to enter for the chance to win $100 gift code towards your own perfect time piece. It can’t hurt to enter as everyone who enters gets their own $25 gift code and I highly recommend that you take full advantage of this fun giveaway!!

OTS for Spring and Summer!

I am officially hopping on to the OTS bandwagon. I think these types of tops look super flattering on and I can not wait to experiment more with this trend. I can’t believe its the beginning of May and we are still experiencing some cold days here, up north. I am not complaining just yet because my room is the only room in the house that gets hot in the summer for some reason and I have yet to set up my portable air conditioner but other than that at this point in the year I would like to go outside without some sort of jacket on. We’ll get there eventually I’m sure though…

For trying out this trend I went to my trusty place, Old Navy. I honestly wasn’t sure if I would like this top so I figured might as well not break the bank for something that might not fit me well. I was wrong and I absolutely love it! I just want to take a second and give some love and appreciation to Old Navy, job well done on some of your pieces this year. I know I have been enjoying them as well as so many others! They really up’d their quality and I am no longer scared to shop there as a result.

I paired my top with some blue jeans as its still breezier some days. I wore statement earrings from J.Crew Factory because with a top like this earrings are an essential piece that pull the outfit together. It gives the outfit a more dressed up/put together look. Finally for my heeled sandals, they are also from Old Navy. Decent price point and they’re my go-to right now because they’re such a comfortable heel.

I am super excited for summer to arrive. I think that OTS is so flattering and cute for the warmer months. I can’t wait to play around with this trend some more. It’s SO cute!!
