Being a blogger is a lot of hard work, and doing what you can to get ahead of the crowd as far as trends are concerned is exhausting. But, the other thing that we don’t talk about as blogger is the mental impact. If you’re working hard on a piece, it can be the mental equivalent of running a marathon!
We can all feel lack of inspiration and sometimes the words just don’t come to our minds. And it becomes one hell of a task to do a very simple blog! The good news is that there are some things we can do to improve our skills, but also give ourselves the mental rejuvenation we need!
Surround Yourself with Inspiration
Not just your writing space, but the immediate surroundings. For example, is your bedroom conducive to inspiration? If it’s not, then it’s time to start peppering pieces of art, literature, and movies around so that you are continually inspired.
Whether it’s just a word here or a concept there. There are also some handy hints on Writetodone.com to find some inspiration if the words really aren’t reaching your fingertips! Read More
New year is the perfect time for a fresh start in your life. It’s great because you can leave the past behind you and aim to improve one (if not more) aspects of your life. We call these new year’s resolutions and in general, people start them on the first day of the new year so that they can wipe their slate clean for the coming year. Here are the top new year’s resolutions that people choose to take on, and how you can do it too.
The choice to lose weight in the new year has to be among the top chosen all over the world. It’s a chance to forget about the naughty eating that you’ve been doing (especially over the festive period,) and getting yourself back into shape by losing the excess weight. Many people struggle to do this alone because of tempting foods and also losing sight of what is actually healthy. If you feel like you might find it hard to lose weight alone, why not attend a weight watchers meeting or something similar? It will give you the support of the group and allow you to lose weight in a healthy way.
Many people long for financial stability at all points of life, but as each new year comes along it’s a great time to decide to concentrate on getting your finances in order. This might be by taking on extra hours at work, or even finding yourself a second job. There are loads of ways to make extra money in your spare time. However, if you’re in a large amount of debt on your credit card it can be hard to see a silver lining. There is such a thing as a federal government credit card debt relief program that may be able to help you, so it’s definitely worth the read.
Christmas is almost here! If you’re a last minute shopper and still searching for something to give the camera owners on your list – you have to check out MOD Straps. They offer stylish and functional camera accessories. Not only is this scarf super pretty but also a lot more comfortable than the strap that came with it.
I love that simply adding this scarf to my camera was an easy way to personalize it. I take my camera everywhere and have gotten so many compliments already. Since I truly take it everywhere, I needed something that was comfortable for on my neck but also able to hold the weight of my camera.
This camera scarf definitely passed the test! So if you’re thinking about getting one, hurry so that you can get it in time for Christmas. If you want to buy this exact camera scarf, keep scrolling, I’ve linked it below. 😉

Hello! Today I’m talking about family photos and this gorgeous lace accent top from Pink Blush. I absolutely love the lace detail on this top and thought it would be perfect for the family photo session I had been planning for weeks. This top is available in other colors including the most gorgeous red, which I think would be perfect for a holiday party.

Getting a new apartment is an exciting time. I remember the very first time I got my first apartment without my family or roommates. It was so exciting! All throughout college, I had lived with roommates and for the most part didn’t do much decorating because it was a shared space. So when I was getting my first apartment alone, I couldn’t wait to start planning how I would make it my own.
That being said I was also a new college grad with limited funds. I knew I wanted to add my personality to the place but I also knew that I needed to do so on a budget. Here are five smart ways to add personality to your new apartment without breaking the bank.
Make Your Own Art
I didn’t initially plan to make my art. I went to a few places, like Ross and Marshalls, to look for art. Store after store I just couldn’t find anything I wanted to look at every day. I went to a local discount arts and crafts store to see what they had in stock.
Happy Hump Day Y’all! I’m sharing this cute little palm tree romper with you since it’s perfect for summer.

I have found some similar options too and linked them below for you to check out and shop. The sandals in this look, I recently got at JCPenney. Let me tell you that I hardly ever shop there, but I’m glad to have found these. They go with everything and have quickly become a favorite. My clutch is also a cross-body from Kate Spade, another accessory that is on repeat because of it’s versatility. 😉 Last but not least, the watch is a Fossil and the earrings from a favorite Etsy Shop, Buddha Blossom Jewels.
