    Happy Thoughts + Star Joggers

    Today’s Election Day! I don’t have off from work, but I will be heading to my polling place right after work to vote. If you’re registered to vote, I hope you’ll be voting too! Today I’m sharing a casual, lounge outfit that I wore over the weekend. I got this top and the joggers in the same GAP order that I placed with my jade tee I wore a few weeks ago that is embroidered with “Dear weekend, I love you”. The star print joggers are super comfy and soft. Seriously, they’re like a dream! They fit perfectly, have the cutest star print, drawstring waist, and they have pockets! The teal…

    Yellow & Black Floral

    Why do Mondays always come so fast? Many teachers in New Jersey have off this week for teachers convention, but not me. Hopefully the week will be pretty smooth and easy though. Today I’m sharing a look I wore to work last week. It is a button down black top with all-over golden yellow floral print. Fun fact: I got this top in Japan! I went in to an Uniqlo there since the company is originally from Japan. I spotted this top and really liked it and the rest is history! Top: Uniqlo | Pants: Old Navy | Shoes: Aldo The fit of the top is loose and the top…

    New TV Shows I’m Loving

    Every fall I look forward to checking out the new shows on TV. Some I really look forward to and they aren’t as good as I hoped, some live up to expectations, and some exceed expectations. I’ve rounded up 4 new shows this season that I’ve been watching, loving, and fit in to that category of exceeding expectations. First up, Magnum, P.I.. This reboot of the Tom Selleck show modernizes the story of Hawaii’s favorite private investigator. It’s brought to viewers from the same producer as Hawaii Five-0. I never watched the original show, but I know of it. My mom used to watch it back when it was on tv…

    Meghan Markle – Royal Tour: Australia & New Zealand

    If you know me, you know I love the royal family. One of my most popular blog and Instagram posts over the years has been my post highlighting Kate Middleton’s fashion during her royal tour to Sweden and Norway last year. For the past 2+ weeks, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle embarked on their first royal tour as a married couple to Australia and New Zealand with short trips to Fiji and Tonga. Since their trip just ended, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to highlight Meghan’s fashion choices on the trip. Before I begin, I have to preface this post by saying that I know there are looks missing…

  • Bruschetta Chicken

    Bruschetta Chicken

    I love bruschetta and I love when Italian restaurants give bruschetta out along with the bread basket. So good! As much as I love classic bruschetta, bruschetta chicken is delicious too. Coincidentally, I had been looking at this bruschetta chicken recipe (here) when I was sent two generous sized wedges of parmigiano reggiano and this recipe calls for freshly shaved parmigiano reggiano. I followed the above recipe as its written. I made my own balsamic glaze using the directions in the recipe and the chicken turned out so good! Click on the link above for the exact recipe and scroll through my photos below for the step-by-step process! First, I…

    Sweat App – Body & Mind

    Happy Friday! This week has been soooo long. And I know people say that a lot, but seriously – it felt like it took forever to me. In fact, for the past 2 days the first thing in my head when I wake up is that it was Friday and then I realized it was not Friday. Huge let down! I’ve been extra tired this week – probably a mix of being busy and not getting enough sleep. I can’t wait to get a solid sleep tonight! If you’ve been following my blog for a while then you know earlier this year I was doing the BBG program on the…

    Brown & Pink Floral

    How was your Halloween? If you saw my Instagram stories then you know I bought two bags of candy from Costco and I was hoping that I got trick or treaters or else I’d have a ton of candy left over. There are a lot of families and kids in my development but you never know if they go out trick or treating or not. At first it was really slow, but eventually I was getting nonstop kids and in groups. I went through 1 and 3/4 bags of the assorted candy from Costco! It was hard to get anything done because I was constantly having to answer the door.…

    Sinful Colors – Conjured Color

    If you’ve been following me for a while then you know I typically paint my own nails. It’s not that I don’t like going to the nail salon, but I don’t usually have the time and I’d rather save the money. So unless I’m treating myself to a mani/pedi or have somewhere special to go where I’d like to get my nails professionally done – I’ll do them myself. In fact this past summer when I had a marathon of weddings to go to within 1 month, I just did my own nails each time. Now, even though I do my own nails I am by no means an expert…

    October 2018 Favorites

    Happy Halloween! I can’t believe it’s already Halloween, the end of October, and that the holiday season is officially upon us. It’s crazy how fast this year has gone. Since it’s the end of October I’ve rounded up some things I loved this month as I do every month. First up, is the coffee table book I got – Florists to the Field . It’s so pretty and I love flipping through and looking at the gorgeous photos! The next few favorites are things I’ve been loving to wear/use. My black joggers with white stripes down the side are so soft and comfy! I love them. My favorite shoe this fall has…

    Sacred Heart Layer Necklace

    Coin necklaces are super popular right now and I’m all for it. I had a coin charm bracelet when I was younger – I should probably look for it in my old jewelry box and see if I can find it. But, in the meantime, I’m sharing this Sacred Heart Layer Necklace. It’s a coin or medallion style layer necklace. It is so pretty and the detail is gorgeous. It comes in silver and gold. Unfortunately, both are currently sold out but you can sign up to be notified when it is back in stock! I love layer necklaces because they’re an effortless way to accessorize. I wore this necklace…
