Hey there, everyone – we are more than halfway through the week! It sure does feel good to be able to say goodbye to Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. I am so glad that my last post was able to touch some of you. It can take a long time to finally accept the person you are and the person you have always been meant to be, but once you do, it’s almost as if a weight is lifted. A challenge for you; each time you say something negative about yourself, say something positive, too. Get into the habit of complimenting yourself once you’ve criticized yourself. I figure since we talk down to ourselves way too often, we should try to reverse it and undo the damage if possible.
And now, because I had a docotors appointment at 7:00 AM, had a full day of work, went to the gym, and just got back from kickball with my friends, I am too tired to write a full post. So of course, this is where Pinterest comes in and does the talking for me. Enjoy your night! ALSO – in the comment section, please tell me one thing that you like about yourself! Don’t be shy.
(Going to try to pull off the above look ASAP)
Hi, guys. Hope your week has been going strong! We are half way through the week – and thank God because I will be busy getting ready this weekend to leave for Mexico bright and early Monday morning! I know that in the healthy eating blog world, Wednesday is regarded as ‘What I Ate Wednesday’, but to be very honest with you – my eats have been super boring. I am getting ready for the beach, people!
So my meals/snacks have been comprised of grilled chicken, egg whites, spinach, some veggie chips, almonds, walnuts, etc… and then next week I will be having fajitas, margaritas, and guac on guac on guac. Pretty amazing stuff to look forward to!
I’ve been pinteresting my way around here and there, looking at all sorts of beautiful sayings, things — basically anything and everything. Here is some of my latest inspiration to share with you!
Guys, I think I have been a pretty lack-luster blogger lately. These past few weeks my head has really been at work and then when I am not at work, I have been at the gym. I know that you all know how those weeks go – in ebbs and flows – and I am not going to post anything of importance or of earth-shattering content at this very moment. So I hope you can all bare with me a bit and I am sorry if I have been disappointing you over the last week or so with my shitty posts.
But this is life right? Some weeks you’re on like donkey kong and the other weeks you don’t have jack shit to write about. So it is what it is and for right now in my spare time I have really been enjoying Pinterest for the pure pleasure of looking at pretty images, sayings, and recipes that I will probably never re-create. So to start the weekend off in a beautiful way, here are some images/quotes I am loving as of late. Wishing you a marvelous Saturday and Sunday <3
Hey all! How are you on this fine Thursday evening? I’m doing pretty well over here.. I have been busy because I have been getting ready to travel for work — to Milan! Yes, you heard me correctly — I am going to Milan, Italy for work this Saturday. I have actually been lucky enough to travel to Milan for work twice prior to this trip, but I am definitely looking forward to landing in Europe on Sunday morning (I am taking an over night flight).
So for now, I am going to say goodbye to you for a few days and leave you with some of my favorite and most inspiring Pinterest images as of late. I am going to be incredibly busy while in Italy, and I don’t want to stress myself out to write up a post here or there. I will have lovely pictures and things to share with you all when I return (March 12th). Chat with you soon
Hi, everyone, and welcome to a blizzard called Nemo. I can’t quite take this blizzard seriously since it’s named after one of the most lovable Disney characters ever – however, I will take advantage of some time on the couch watching TV and lounging around like it’s nobody’s biz-nassssss. Hoping to workout on both Saturday and Sunday, too!
I’ve found some inspiring ‘pins’, so to keep up with my ‘Pinterest Fridays’ you can see some of my favorites below. Have a great weekend!
Glitter is always the answer.
You guys all know by now that I do love me some Pinterest inspiration. I’ve been reviewing my boards lately – just to keep my ideas fresh (even if not all of them pan out). But still, who doesn’t like to look at nice ideas, inspiring quotes, and beautiful clothing? Anyhow, happy happy Friday and welcome to a well deserved weekend! Hope this quote is just what you needed. I am going to visit my friend from college, and can’t wait to get out of this bustling city for a hot second. xo.
Guys, I have been so busy this week and it’s just Thursday tomorrow. Can’t really think of a better title for this post. Feels like it should definitely be Friday. This week has been busy around my office and I had obligations every day after work so I’ve been getting little sleep, eating not so great, and trying my best to work out when I can. But I can just feel that my body is super tired and only wants to do light workouts – which is fine.
Speaking of workouts, my room mate and I purchased a Groupon about a month ago for three trampoline workout classes for $29 – which is a steal here in NYC. Tonight is our first class — 45 minutes long — and I am really looking forward to it even though I am tired. Have you ever done a trampoline workout class? It’s supposed to be good on your joints while giving you that cardio kick!
Before signing off, here’s some stuff from Pinterest I found and obviously loved. I have nothing too exciting to report and my brain is fried so I’m going to let someone else do the work for me!
Can someone please purchase one of these necklaces for me? Someone? Anyone? Hello?!
Happy Sunday evening to all of you! I am currently back in my apartment after a day of traveling — all unpacked and managed to clean the apartment, too. When I set my mind to do something, I really like to follow through and I knew that I would feel much better about the week coming up with at least a clean apartment. Does anyone else ever get into cleaning kicks? Now I’m ready for some take out and television..
I also took down the Halloween decorations and put up a few Christmas decorations but I am waiting for Britt to come back so we can put up our little tree! Can’t wait! Do you all like to decorate for the holiday’s? I’m debating on getting a few more decorations but I’m sure the apartment will feel more complete once our tree is up.
I’m really trying to get into the ‘Christmasey’ mood but am having a little bit of a tough time this year — it’s so weird to not have my grandparents around during this time of year and I miss them so much. They really made our Christmas’ perfect. I’m also definitely going to miss my childhood home (which is in Rockland County, NY) this Christmas! My first one not spent in it… however, there are new memories to be made. Maybe once I start wrapping gifts and watching some more Christmas specials my holiday spirit will brighten up Any suggestions?
Before ending this short but sweet post, I found some really wonderful and positive quotes on Pinterest lately that I’d like to share with you. They’re related to everything — attitude, love, work, outlook on life. If you can relate to just one of them, I suggest writing down on a piece of paper to read back to yourself when you’re having a tough time. Can’t hurt – only help
I hope you open your eyes to all of the beautiful things around you this week. It is so easy to get caught up in the schedules and rushing — but remember to keep your heart and mind open to the lovely little things that surround us.
Hey there. Do you like the title of my post? ‘Cause I gotta admit — I really like cursing. I’ve been told it’s really not feminine, but, while I consider myself to be on the girly side, I love a dirty joke and a good curse word here and there… or everywhere !
So when I decided that I wanted to post a few really funny Pinterest things that made me laugh this week, I noticed that nine out of ten of those things involve cursing. So I’ve whittled it down a bit — some people are offended by cursing, and I understand that– but please excuse the few that have curses. Sometimes it just ties everything together
Yea, I mean, it never gets old.
Keeping it real.
Taylor, for real, get a grip.. I’m just trying to help a sister out.
…I probably would have wanted this up until the age of twelve.
Willing to bet that one day my kid will have this attitude.
Willing to bet that this is my attitude in relationships sometimes. Guilty.
That’s all for now! Hope you got a laugh out of at LEAST one of these. Come on peeps – tomorrow is Friday!
Hey there! Thanks for your positive feedback from the two vlogs (here and here) that I recorded this past week. I plan to keep them up more regularly – and Britt will definitely be making more appearances!
Anyway, you all know by now that I am a big Pinterest fan. From recipe’s, to workouts, quotes, and everything else in-between, there are so many times when I fall on pinning gem’s. I wanted to share some of my most recent ‘gems’ with you.
(You know you’ve felt the same way)
This was hands down me and my friend Tina consistently throughout grade school and high school.
Tina and I in high school — should explain everything for you:
I think that’s all for now. Have a great day!
