Favorite transitional clothes for spring

Who’s ready for spring? To me, February has always been an odd month! I’m still trying to hold on to those resolutions I made in January, the weather is strange & I find myself wanting to wear bright colors and sandals all the time. My body is craving warm weather & sun. (I swear I’m Vitamin D deficient, sometimes!) When everything feels just a little out of whack, the one thing I can count on in my closet are transitional pieces. The tried & true, never-let-me-down kind of clothes.

Life catch-up + what I learned in 2017

Life catch-up + what I learned in 2017

Hello friends! After a 3-month hiatus from the blog, I’m back! At the end of September, I realized I really needed to focus on my job, and spend some time reflecting on where I wanted to take the blog.

But since it’s a new year (2018!), it’s time to began again. I still have a crazy passion about the one thing I’m always trying to obtain: everyday balance. Not feeling rushed.

Long time no see, everyone! Life’s crazy with work, busy weekends traveling and adjusting to a new routine.

One of the biggest obstacles is figuring out a new workout routine. Recently, I find myself on the couch more than in the gym or outside getting some good ole Vitamin C. Not a good sign! For a month or so, I paid $30 to try a hot yoga studio near my job. I absolutely loved it. But on most nights, I got home late after work and had zero time to do anything. Yoga studios are also pricey, so I had to find an alternative that would work with my monthly budget.
