Happy June! I had a great weekend catching up on some personal projects + being somewhat lazy. This month is one that I’ve been looking forward to for awhile. It’s also a lighter month when it comes to work which allows us to dive into some experimental projects + focus on a few other things [&helli

Hello, May! My favorite month. Mostly and only because my birthday is May 9th. And who doesn’t love their birthday?? Even when I’m old, I’ll love my birthday and all my grey hairs. May is going to be a month of business, change and growth. Here are some of the few new things I’m going [&

It’s April Fool’s Day! This is actually one of my favorite “fake” holidays. I used to love pranking people all the time when I was a kid (and I was good at it too) and still think back fondly when April Fool’s Day rolls around. Almost every year I consider posting online that I&#82

We’re traveling for half of the month of March so I decided to try 3 new things that I could do…anywhere: Practice yoga daily. Even if it’s for 10 minutes in our bedroom, on the beaches of Hawaii or attending my first ever class here in Columbus. My friend Jess inspired me to start trying [&he

I welcome February with open arms. January flew by and was quite successful. I felt balanced and met business goals. I’m looking forward to accomplishing new ones! If you missed it, you can see my how I accomplished all 3 January goals (here, here and here). So what’s up for February? Here we go: Me

One of January’s 3 New Things was to create a vanity in our bedroom. A place where I could keep my jewelry and nail polish. A place where I could do my makeup with the help of some natural light. I was looking for a vanity desk/table for the entire month. I would either find […]

Happy New Year, loves! I thought about posting last week and yesterday too but decided to wait until January 1st to post my 3 new things! I started this series to better tackle trying new things and to list goals. There’s something quite daunting about making a resolution for an entire year. We all change

December is already here but I wouldn’t know it considering today’s high is 69 degrees. (WHAT?) Honestly if it’s never going to snow here in Ohio then I’m out. I need a cold winter! I’m sure not everyone else agrees with me but I’m totally baffled and bummed by this spring-li

Hello, November. You are too cold right now. I’m feeling a bit better because I see that the forecast is calling for a high 40’s this weekend which is a lot better than low 30’s (when it really feels like 15 degrees!) I’m just being a baby because I was a bit too spoiled in […]

I really cannot believe that it’s already October. My goals this month are simple because I’m only at home for 17 of the 31 days. I’ll be speaking Influence in a couple weeks and than taking a tropical week-long vacation with Adam (!!!!!). We’re also be moving this week so my mind is wh

I hosted a swap party with my friend Halle on Wednesday night at a local bar called Double Happiness. They have the coolest lounge up top, serve great drinks and you can even score some Japanese street food (which was oh.my.gosh delicious). We set everything up in certain areas and let all the ladies browse [&h

One of my 3 new things to try in September was to buy all my produce from farmer’s markets! It’s one of the best new things I’ve decided to do. For the past five years of my life, I would just buy all my produce from the grocery store because it was easier (which isn’t […]

At the beginning of July, I set forth to accomplish 3 new things and the first thing was to send more letters to friends and family! Well, I only sent out three (during the first three days of freelancing full-time) and then it all went downhill from there. It was a combination of being really […]

For the past few months, I try to attempt 3 new things that I’ve never done! So far, my track record hasn’t been so hot but I have high hopes. I’ve actually learned a lot. I’m learning just how much you can do in a month (the answer: not as much as I thought). Here’s […]

I attempted and succeeded at July’s New Thing #1: make healthy(ish) popsicles! I bought the molds on Amazon ($12) and searched for recipes without added sugar. A lot of popsicle recipes have you add 2 tablespoons – 2 cups of refined sugar. BLECH! I finally found this recipe on Pinterest (I didn&#82

I totally failed last month’s 3 New Things. June really opened my eyes to 1) how fast a month flies by and 2) how much I can actually accomplish within those days. I only visited Cleveland (I was aiming at 3 new Ohio towns), I skipped making natural cleaner because I still have a lot […]

Apartment Living DIY is a monthly series where I spruce up something in our apartment. Adam and I currently rent a small one bedroom apartment and always get an itch to customize. Unfortunately we can’t knock down walls or upgrade appliances so we thought we’d work on a fun temporary DIY each month

Every month I decide to try 3 new things. Last month I decided that I wanted to make my own jewelry so I thought it would be fun to document it all and share! I originally used this post as a guest blog post over on Ciera’s blog yesterday but I wanted to post it […]

As I explained earlier this week, May was a pretty important month and it directly influenced this blog! I’m excited to announce a few new things and share my June TRY THREE NEW THINGS.  ONE  // I will no longer be accepting sponsors or ads on my sidebar. While I was SO blessed with my […]

I often read home/DIY blogs (like Young House Love) and want to do everrrry single project. Then I look around at my little one bedroom apartment and realize that I cannot knock down walls or replace the hardwood flooring with something a bit more snazzy (and less scratched). This month while taking on Sarah&#8

My friend Heather took me to EcoFlora last night for a belated birthday present/terrarium building class! Located in Clintonville (a neighborhood in Columbus), this little shop stole my heart! So many gorgeous flowers, succulents, and jars. My terrarium turned out differently than I had anticipated but I love i

I thought I’d give an update on the May #30DaysToSanity challenge by Sarah Storer. The past few weeks have been a bit slower freelancing – which I’ve appreciated. I’ve either been waiting for feedback from clients or finalizing a handful of projects. I’ve failed at the whole &#8220

Last Wednesday, I shared that I was taking a step back to re-evaluate and prioritize. I’ve only messed up a few times but other than that it’s been working really well. This week I’m starting Sarah’s #30DaysToSanity challenge for the month of May. I’ve made a few tweaks but it incl
