Confidence is Key

One of my resolutions for this year was to update my site at least once a month. Obviously I am not doing as well as I had hoped as it is February 28th and I have only posted one other blog post, which was written in January. Luckily, I am here in the nick of…

Back by Popular Demand…

Well hello! By popular demand I am finally back. Just kidding. Though some people have made little comments, asked questions, etc. I am sure that for the most part you have not noticed I have been out of action for almost seven months. For those of you that have asked what happened to my blogging,…

Dad Advice Worth Remembering

Dear old dad. He is the man that has been there through it all. He is the one that taught us how to throw a baseball, how to ride a bike and how to drive a car. He is the one that had to watch in horror as we constantly made terrible dating decisions. He…

Simple Tips to Make Mornings a Breeze

If you know me at all, you know that I hate being late. I love having everything planned out and I like to be prepared for anything and everything. I cannot recall a single instance throughout my college career where I completed an assignment later than a full day before it was due (while most…

For the Love of Motherhood

Ever since I was a little girl I have been excited to know that I will one day be a mother. As a child I loved pretending to be a mommy as I played with my baby dolls. As a teenager I loved to babysit other people’s kids and spend time with my sister who…

Memories Over Merchandise

If you know me, you probably know that I love shopping. Something about walking out of a store with the items I have been gawking over is just so appealing! The problem is these minor sparks of happy moments are not lasting ones. Soon the happiness I feel wearing or using my new items fades….

Tomorrow Will Be Better.

I hate when people pretend like their lives are perfect on social media, so I am going to be blunt. Today could be classified as bad. Everything seemed to go wrong. People were unkind and let me down. I didn’t meet the expectations I set for myself. My blood sugars were not agreeing with me….

Feeling Pride in Yourself

Today felt very long. Besides my blood sugars having been off for two days, I am overwhelmed with finishing up school and just feel burnt out (raise your hand if you hate group projects!). Nate and I started talking about how I would be graduating in two weeks, when I started thinking: “I have worked…

What Happens When You Marry Up

This week was so busy and crazy I don’t think I would have made it through it if it wasn’t for my perfect husband. I knew Nate was too good for me from the moment I laid eyes on him. The first time I saw Nate he was Christmas caroling at my house with some…

Being a Supportive Woman

Since today is International Women’s Day, I thought it would be the perfect time to write about a topic I have been thinking a lot about lately! I think that there is a bad (and sometimes true) stereotype that women are catty, prone to gossip and like to put one another down. While I definitely…

Friday Favourites: Beauty

Things have been pretty hectic lately. Apparently finishing school, working and starting your own business is kind of time consuming. Who knew? These days, it gets pretty easy for me to feel blah about my appearance. I definitely do not consider myself a beauty guru, but I’ve rounded up a few of my favourite products…

Introducing: Tiny Kingdom

Hello! I am so excited to introduce you all to my senior project. I’ve have been working on this for the past two months and it has been crazy. For this project, I wanted to find something that would be fun, incorporate the skills I have gained as a comm major and create something that…
