Turning 32 and Why I Like Being a Thirtysomething

Reflections

I have a few reflections and a new perspective on life now that I’m 32. It’s officially ten years since I entered the workforce as a full-time professional in public relations and I remember the constant self-doubt and anxiety I felt at that time of my life. I was just leaving college life trying to find new friends and build a new network in Lansing. I was broke, navigating this new adult life with student loans, stupid roommates, a job I was trying to figure out if I hated and poor eating habits. I was kind of a hot mess.

Damn, I’m glad I’m 32. Read More »

My Perfect Day

I had a conversation with my mom a couple weeks ago talking about what our perfect day looks like. Before she told me what she likes to do, she told me she absolutely hates visiting downtown areas and shopping local clothing boutiques, which made me laugh because that’s exactly what I love to do.

I’ve been making more time for this on the weekends since the work week has been stressful this time of the year and the weather persuades me to stay indoors. Read More »

Mistakes like blasting my heat in my car on my face, taking scalding how showers and using the wrong skincare products this time of year. I just hosted a skincare event at Fresh Thyme last week where I could share a few of my favorite products and how to best care for my skin this winter, and wanted to share them here too (and a few photos from the event!)

A Non-Local’s Guide to Owosso

Visiting Ovid and Owosso

Whenever my mother makes her annual, sometimes biannual trip to my little part of the state, we have to hit up Tom’s Western Store. I have to admit now that I have my own horse again, I enjoy it much more. I found a little massage brush and a slow feed hay bag for my girl Mocha and a pair of Ariat western boots that I snagged on sale.

Since we were so close to Owosso, I took my mom on a trip to that adorable downtown for some shopping, snacking and sipping. Read More »
