It’s January. The time of year where everyone digs out their fitbits and dusts off their sports bras to stick to those resolutions. Ahhh the resolutions. We mustn’t let them down! The thing is this–getting to the gym isn’t always possible. Our gym doesn’t have childcare and in this new season of life, O is gone before the sun comes up and isn’t home til’ it’s back down. I have two toddlers, a small window of time to get a workout in and a goal to break a sweat every day. What’s a girl to do? Utilize what you’ve got!
It’s 2019! It’s a weird sci-fi thing to say and very wild to think we’ll be in the year 2020 next year. Very Zenon (I hope ‘Supernova Girl is stuck in your head for the rest of the day). I love reflecting on my best purchases of the year to see which items made the biggest impact across the board. From the quick, impulsive AmazonPrime purchases to the items that I spent years considering, comparing and hoping for–here are my best purchases of the year.

Creating a gift guide for “her” is the most fun, but also the most difficult. Who exactly is this lady? A new mom? A teacher? An artist? A globe trotter? The goal with these items is to be delightful and special to every woman across the board. When I give gifts I love making a theme to group things together. If the theme is rest, I’ll box up a dreamy pajama set and a sleep mask or bath salts, a candle and matches. If the theme is peace I’ll gift a journal and some tea and a mug or a bible and special pens. Gifts are my love language so I gift as I’d love to receive!
It’s the last day of October! Was this the worlds fastest month in the history of time for anyone else? My goodness. I’ve looked back on this past month on my most used and most enjoyed things to curate my MVP’s of October.
I always reach a point in October where I essentially rotate four sweaters all the way through February. Not even joking. Four. I’m a creature of comfort and the thought of slipping into anything other than a cozy turtleneck or warm cardigan on a chilly day just isn’t going to cut it. Here’s a roundup of my favorite sweaters across the board for the cozy months ahead.
UPDATE: I first wrote this post nearly one year ago to the day (October of 2017). It’s since been one of the most visited pages on my blog and this time of year it’s pinned multiple times every single day. I thought I’d keep the images and wording the same but update the slider below each outfit idea to current options. While I stand by each image and item I initially selected, it’s been a year, people. Those items are all sold out. Enjoy! Happy photo planning!
