I don't know about you but I have mixed feelings about the fast approaching end of summer. I love summer and the chill freedom it brings, but fall offers a sense of new beginnings, a second wind to work towards our goals. I feel like I'm in a constant tug of war because I'm sad to see summer go, but excited to buckle down and make this upcoming fall my little B**** in the most productive sense possible. So while I'm waiting for the seasons to transition, here are a few things that I've been craving and coveting hardcore. I even bought a few of the items below, and guess what, I'm probably going to buy more (as long as they are within my budget because I need to stop overspending asap).

Luckily, all the pieces I'm current lusting after will completely be wearable in fall. So cheers to making the end of summer count and planning for a fun fall. I hope this short, curated list helps you pinpoint any fun items you want to add to your wardrobe. I'd love to know what pieces of clothing or accessories you've been coveting lately. And thanks so much for taking time to read my post. You're support seriously makes me day! Until next time!

August Mood Board: Soaking Up the Last Days of Summer

August 18, 2018

For the first part of August, I was focused on one thing... not losing my freaking mind! Life really kicked it up a notch and started throwing hard balls at my family, my relationship and my job. From what I can tell, pretty much everyone around me had a rocky start to August. Apparently Mercury is still in retrograde until August 18th (aka today)... honestly, I don't take astrology too seriously, but maybe there's something to it after all.

Luckily, we still have two weeks left of the month to fill this summer with beautiful experiences. I plan to hit up a few more tropical themed restaurants, finish my summer reads, avoid wearing pants at all costs and indulge in a much-deserved staycation. I know my list isn't packed with a million fun activities, but that's the beauty in it. I want to embrace some ease and flow, so for the rest of summer, I am relaxing and seeing what blessings life throws my way. We put so much pressure on ourselves. It's time for an actual break.

How are you planning to enjoy these last weeks of summertime? I'd love to hear in the comments below. Until next time my friend, and thank you so much for stopping by. Your support means everything to me... seriously! Thanks for helping me get one step closer to my dreams. Lots of love!

Memes of the Day: A Quick Way to Cheer Up

Another Monday is in the books. I've been a major grouch today. Between my lack of sleep and a 9+ hour workday without a lunch break, I'm far from a ray of sunshine at the moment.  I need a little positivity in my day, but instead of glancing at a ton of inspirational quotes, I decided to seek out memes. I have amazing friends who started a shared memes folder, so I figured it was time to share the wealth (all of these memes are from that folder). Afterall, laughter really is the best medicine, so I hope the memes below bring you a little bit of joy too. And PLEASE leave the name of your favorite meme account below. I'm always looking for more. Until next time my friend!
