    Collect Moments NOT Things

    “Collect Moments NOT Things” When was the last time you did something for YOU? Solely for the memories you’ll make, and the happiness you’ll feel? Not for the amount of likes you will receive…not for the amount of followers you will gain…   In this day and age, it is harder than ever to do things without showing them off! Instagram posts, Snapchat stories, Facebook statuses and Tweets… So many outlets, why wouldn’t we want to use them!? Don’t get me wrong–social media is a bad habit of mine, and I’m positive I have over exposed my fair share of memories! But it’s what we do best! It’s how we’ve…

    Everything Happens For a Reason

    If you haven’t yet noticed–I am a bit obsessed with quotes! Each of my posts usually begin with a new one. And when you think about it, we will never truly run out of them! As long as people are talking, we will have things to quote. I love how it’s such a perfect way to bring people together. Whether it’s from a children’s book that we all know and love, or a catchy song that we play on repeat, there are words all around us that we can live by. “Everything Happens For a Reason” for example. When you think about the way the world works, it can get quite…

    Failure is NOT an Option

    “DON’T SIT IN DARKNESS. REACH FOR THE LIGHT.” I read this quote recently and just couldn’t seem to get it off my mind! Now if you know me, you know that I don’t truly believe in accidents. My life motto is that everything happens for a reason! So on that note, as I drove past this church near home, I noticed the sign out front. It is very well known for their clever phrases and memorable quotes, but this one has really stuck with me! Thought provoking if you must. We shouldn’t ever be afraid to try something new! Great things never came from comfort zones… It wasn’t until after…

    The PERFECT Cinnamon Roll Recipe

    I don’t know about you, but I have one heck of a sweet tooth!! Basically living my life by the saying, “Life is short, eat dessert first.”  Well, in this case, we’re eating BREAKFAST first… After hours of scouring the internet, I finally came across this cinnamon roll recipe from a family on YouTube! It has been passed down through the generations, and those are always the best kind!! You can’t go wrong with a classic.  (I will link their original video down below.) Now let’s get started! I’m basically drooling over the sheer thought of these beauties… INGREDIENTS: 3 Tablespoons of yeast 1 Tablespoon of sugar 1 cup of warm…

    Friends Turned to Strangers

    From 18 years of friendship…to basically strangers. I lost the one person I never thought I could lose… You know when you’re younger, and you get those necklaces that say BFF on them? YOU get one half of the heart, and your friend gets the other? You promise to never take them off, and you swear to each other that you will be bestest friends forever!? Those were the days… Naive little souls, with not a clue what the world would have in store for them. Makes you want to go back in time and say, “Just wait, my dear…you   have   no   idea…” Now, I don’t want to just dive…

    When Life Gives You Lemons

    Have you seen the new hit TV series called “This Is Us”? It’s about a cute little family, going through their lives–growing up, and growing apart. The daily struggles that we may all face, but still being able to see the bright side! (If you have not yet watched it, 10/10 would highly recommend!) My point in bringing that up was because of a certain quote. A quote that really stood out to me. One that made me realize, no matter what, it will all be okay!! “There’s no lemon so sour that you can’t make something resembling lemonade.” You see, I’ve been going through a pretty rough time lately.…

    What Goes Around Comes Around

    “What goes around, comes around.” A very common saying that I’m sure you’ve heard a time or two; and there’s a reason why…IT’S TRUE!  Whether we are discussing karma itself, or the hit Justin Timberlake song from 2009, the general idea remains the same. It’s like the story in Galatians 6:7. “YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW.” If all you do is put out negativity, that’s all you will bring in. But on the flip side, if you live a positive and uplifting lifestyle, that’s what you will get in return!  A very simple strategy if you ask me. I want to share with you, a little experience that happened to me…

    Tarteist Pro Palette REVIEW

    Some might say they like pina coladas, or even getting caught in the rain. But personally, I enjoy long romantic walks down the makeup aisle… Who doesn’t enjoy a nice stroll through the pre-lit mirrored shelves. And let’s not forget about the rows upon rows of brightly colored products just waiting to be swatched! Now THAT’S what I call fun. If you don’t leave Sephora with a hand covered in various shades of glosses and pigments: well, honey, you’re doing it wrong! Since most people are aware of my addiction to the glorious money-trap we call a cosmetic store, I received a gift card for Christmas! Now came the hard…
