Eating right and exercising should be an important part of your life. You only have one body so you should treat it right!

Healthy eating isn't too complicated for me (I type this while eating a sour key) - my struggle is the exercise part.

For most healthy adults, the Department of Health and Human Services recommends you get at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity a week, or a combination of moderate and vigorous activity.

A Messy Girl's Review of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up - The KonMari Method

I used to think that there were two kinds of people in the world: those that are naturally tidy and those that would rather get a root canal than deal with a mess. It wasn't until I was recommended this book that I thought I could actually learn how to keep a tidy house. If you've never heard of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, it's a book written by Marie Kondo, a Japanese organizing consultant. She's written multiple books about organization and this one has done extremely well around the world. It teaches you a unique process to transform your house by simplifying and organizing possessions.

I'm not the messiest person you'll ever meet but I'm in no way a clean freak either. I'm mostly just super lazy (at least I'm honest lol). I don't have clothes all over the floor or garbage overflowing from the bin, but I do have a basket full of clean clothes that should have been put away a few weeks ago and a collection of cardboard boxes by the door that is waiting to be taken to recycling.

Best Budget Friendly Makeup Products

I may not be a beauty guru but I have used my fair share of different makeup products. Over the years I've got sucked into the trap that is Youtube makeup tutorials and spent hours learning how to create that perfect contour. My budget can be pretty tight so I needed to find some good quality makeup products. You can definitely find great, long lasting products, without having to pay the high price tag.

4 Do's + Don'ts When Buying Your First House

I’ve learned a few things in my journey to buy a house (some I had to learn the hard way) and I am sharing them with you today!  Get ready for the Do’s and Don’ts of buying your very first home!


I bought my first house a little over a year ago and it was both stressful and exciting!
Being able to do it by myself has given me such a great feeling of accomplishment and although it doesn’t come without its occasional drawbacks, I wouldn’t have it any other way!

Having your own house (rather than renting) comes with a great feeling of freedom. It’s YOUR house. Want to paint the kitchen lime green? Go for it! Want to have people over late at night without having to worry about annoying the tenants above you (or vice versa)? No worries. Want a backyard all to yourself that you can fill with flowers, a BBQ, and firepit? Do it! FREEEDOM!

Of course, it doesn’t come without responsibility as well. Grass needs cutting? That’s your job now. The furnace needs repair? The cost is yours. Enjoy those long steamy showers? You’ll see that on next month's water bill.

March Goals + My Feelings of Goal Guilt

Every month I come up with goals for my personal life and my blogging business. I'm sharing my March goals with you on the blog along with some feelings of goal guilt.


I’m so glad February is over. February is just one of those months that are blah. I want to move closer to spring … BRING ON MARCH!!

February was full of learning and planning for me. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m a Libra but I’m very indecisive. I think it’s just as much of a good thing as a bad because in the process of making up my mind I do a lot of research. I get sucked into the black hole that is online reviews/tips/advice. Sometimes I can get lost in it all, but this month I think I kept my head on straight.
