It’s a new season and officially time to reorganize clothing and accessories. Winter in Michigan is THE longest season, so I put in a little more effort since I have the most clothing for this season..and it takes up the most room!

Closet Before & After


I Own a Home!

I pulled the trigger and became a homeowner last month! I was struck with waves of excitement followed by fear reminding myself I’m responsible for this structure and all the work I want to see materialize. Luckily, I’m type A and never without a plan. And I’ll have a series of blog posts documenting my journey to make to make this home exactly what I envisioned. But first, closet (naturally)!

I upgraded to a three-bedroom home which means my grandparents don’t have to share a guest bedroom with all my shoes. I dedicated the second largest room to become my closet after some planning and physical work, which truly is my least favorite thing in the world. But it doesn’t seem as bad if it’s for your own home, I promise you. Read More »

Lazy Weekends


I’m the type of person who rewards myself with food when I’ve accomplished something..or if I’m sad or upset, I want a donut to lift my spirits.

And with a handful of changes happening, pushing me outside of my typical routine, my stress levels elevate and I find myself craving all the sugar.

I’ve been obsessed with matte lipsticks and I love this formula by Maybelline in the first image. It glides on smoothly and feels more hydrating, unlike a few formulas I’ve tested recently. I’m also a fan of Neutrogena’s hydro boost water gel, with and without sunscreen. My skin is sensitive to moisturizers and this line doesn’t flare up my acne.
Now that the weather has warmed and the flowers have bloomed, I’m ready to smell sweet and tropical. I go between Dial’s coconut water body wash now and Dove.
I’m also ready for humidity with Schwartzkopf’s frizz control and protect line. Meijer carries professional hair products like Schwarzkopf and my absolute favorite, Biolage.
