Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, right?! Isn’t that what we’ve always been taught? I definitely agree with that statement but I’d probably also have to add dogs, champagne and beach vacations to my best friends list as well.

This blue hue makes my heart happy. Despite my clear gravitation towards neutrals, this bright royal blue is actually my favorite color. So much so that it’s the exact color my bridesmaids wore.

#1 Chocolate Almondmilk Ice Cubes This is about as simple as it gets but these little guys are game-changers!

Race Day is Sunday! I cannot believe that my race is literally 4 days away. I’m equally as excited about it as I am incredibly nervous. My training started back in January and I stuck to my plan almost 100% which is kind of shocking. Unfortunately over the past 12 days, after feeling so good […]

Can’t get enough of this sunny weather! I’m with the majority of the population who isn’t thrilled that it is Monday, but waking up to the sun shining and not a cloud in the sky definitely is helping the case of the Mondays that is brewing inside my soul. The sun and espresso that is. […]
