Be anxious

Well, it’s been far too long since I’ve written here, but I’ve thought about it every damn day for the busy month of October and thus far into November. But why dwell in the past, because here I am! I’ve always been forthcoming and transparent when it comes to my anxiety, and one of the…

Happy Fall Y’all

Fellow basic bitches (and bros), we’ve made it! Autumn is here, and I am so ready for it.  With the change of the seasons can come some sniffles, but it does not have to be a total buzzkill or stop you from enjoying Fall festivities! Did you know that Fall allergies can be just as…

Bridal Beauty – SOS Edition!

Over the weekend, we celebrated our engagement party with an I Do BBQ. It was a ton of fun, getting to celebrate with our friends and family. As you can see from the photo above, we had a really fabulous time. Of course, a few days before the party, my skin started to break the…

Sweating for the Wedding

This blog has been really helpful for me to track and share my weight loss and fitness journey. This is an area of my life that I’ve struggled with since high school, and I’ve learned that it’s important to have an outlet to talk about it, and a way to hold yourself accountable.  I’ve been…

My Beauty Routine: Bride on a Budget

I work hard to have good skin, but for the most part, it’s come easily to me. Maybe it’s genes, but if I treat my skin and my body right, my skin shows it. I’ve also been taking care of my skin for a long time, for almost as long as I can remember. I…

Wine and Beer!

Everyone knows that I love beer. In fact, you might say that I am a bit of a snob about it. But, here’s something… I also love wine! But I am definitely not a wine snob. Two Buck Chuck from Trader Joe’s? Sure thing! Let’s face it, I spent my college years (and several of…

Let’s Catch Up

The favorite thing about my last post is that I wrote it on an ordinary Sunday night. The day after Cinco de Drinko, so perhaps still feeling a little rough. Little did I know that the next day, I would receive the biggest surprise of my life. On Monday, May 7, somewhere around 2:00 in…

Read All About It

It’s May, so if you’ve kept up on your New Year’s resolutions, kudos to you. As I’ve mentioned, I don’t believe in them, but I did make some promises to myself to help me be a better me this year. In addition to Weight Watchers and yoga, I also decided to read more. I’ll be…

Anxiety Prime

“Anxiety” and “anxious” are words that get thrown around a lot. Some people are just anxious, others have some form of anxiety disorder. For a lot of us who suffer from some form of anxiety, a common way of coping is to joke about it. At least 5 times a day, I see some type…

Take Care!

Those who know me well, know that self-care is a huge priority for me lately. Those same people know that for me, it was not always a priority. I’m here to tell you how I’ve been able to work it into my life and budget. But mainly, I’m here to convince you that you are…
