Happy Monday guys!!  Today I’m sharing the vacation destinations I’d like to visit most at the moment.  Despite the fact that I’m very much a homebody, I think travel is an essential element to expanding your mind, finding increased inspiration and becoming a well-rounded human being.  I don’t travel as often as I’d like but…

Five Posts I Read Tonight | Part 2

It’s that time again!!  Last month, I wrote a post on five posts I’d read one night and tonight I’ve decided to do it once again.  We had a power outage for the majority of our day because neither my beloved state’s drivers nor (evidently) its power grid can handle any measurable amount of rain…

Why #GirlPower is SO Important

Valentine’s Day was yesterday but I’m still in the mood for all things love-themed!  As such, today’s post is for the girls and it’s all about girl power, empowering women and loving yourself for the multi-faceted female being that you are.  I’ve experienced firsthand how competitive and judgmental women can be around other women.  But…

Nic’s Strawberry Lavender Lemonade!

Hi guys!! Today I am (finally!!) posting my Valentine’s Day recipe for Strawberry Lavender Lemonade. My family is very lucky to have fresh lavender growing in our yard as well as a lemon tree, but even if you have to do a bit of hunting for the ingredients I think the end result is well…

Not Today’s Regularly Scheduled Post

Hi guys. I was supposed to do my Valentine’s Day recipe today but it’s been dark and gloomy all day long (poor planning for photography on my part) and I’m kinda having a rough time right now. I got through a couple Twitter chats earlier (which definitely made me smile – thank you all if…

Happy Friday guys!!  Today I’m sharing my goals for this month as I did last month and as I hope to do each month in an effort to stay motivated and challenge myself all year long.  A couple of these goals are pretty easy and a couple are a bit intimidating, but I’m determined to…

Monthly Favorites | January 2017

You guys. Can someone please explain to me how we’ve already zipped through an entire month of 2017?! January has, as have many previous months, flown by in the blink of an eye. And while this month has felt like an extension of last year’s life-gives-you-lemons legacy, I’ve managed to squeeze out a few favorites…

Five Popular TV Shows I NEVER Watch

Most of my TV time is spent watching MSNBC, YouTube videos or scrolling through Netflix to find binge-watchable shows that were the hot topic of water cooler conversations five years ago and then ultimately not sitting still long enough to actually view them.  I’m not sure if it’s my long-held habit of shunning things that…
