Follow my blog with Bloglovin Yesterday I made a cheap, easy painted change jar. In total the supplies cost me ten dollars, making the change jar kept me occupied for an afternoon, and I am in love with the final product. If you’re familiar with my blog, you may know that I have a lot of things I want to do before I die, and a lot of places I would like to travel to. So, ambitiously perhaps, I’m hoping by filling up my change jar with loose coins, I can hopefully begin to fund travels and exciting adventures. I… View Post

Not only is the smoothie delicious, but it’s made with completely healthy ingredients so it’s guilt free, too! It… View Post

A few weeks ago I talked to you about stepping out of your comfort zone and doing something that scares you. I mentioned how starting this blog was that for me.

I have a new circle of friends from all over the country, a passion that is slowly leading me to great opportunities, and I’m learning some really great skills that will benefit me for… View Post

I’ve always been lucky – growing up I had countless incredible women to look up to. My mom, my grandma, aunts, and cousins – plus women outside of my family. I do realize that not everyone is quite as fortunate which sparked the idea of a new series for here on the blog. Every month or so I will be featuring a woman on the blog who has done something amazing or inspiring. Considering the number of great women I’ve had the pleasure of meeting in my life – it’s safe to say that this series will be going on for… View Post
