How We Became "We"

It seems as if the moment I got into a relationship, my life also got a ton busier and I haven't been able to blog as much or post as much on Instagram. For those who may follow me on Instagram it may seem as if one day, all of a sudden, I just had a boyfriend and then was engaged and since then, I haven't really had the time I've wanted to write all the cute blog posts I've had dreamed up for this moment. But, no better time to start than the present time so, here is a blog post about how David and I met and started to date... it's a rather cute story if I do say so myself!

Product Review - BHU Foods

Being gluten free can sometimes be a burden. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease when I was 12 years old and being a young girl (a girl who LOVES food) I was devastated that I had to eat disgusting food for the rest of my life... it really was just nasty back in the day. Gluten Free food has certainly come a long way since 9 years ago and to make eating Gluten Free even better I recently found BHU Foods!

BHU Foods is an all Gluten Free, Vegan, Organic company that makes amazing snacks! I recently found them on Instagram and reached out to them immediately!  I went onto their website and saw that they had so many amazing flavored protein bars and I wanted to try all of them! Kindly enough BHU Foods sent me one of all of their bars to try and review for you guys!

Local Buisness Review || Most Relaxing Day Ever!

Happy Monday!

Do you ever get so busy and then you get blessed with the most random relaxation day that you didn't see coming? I had that experience on Thursday.

Recently, my life has become a lot more exciting and a lot more jam packed with things to do, places to go, and people to see. If you haven't read on my Instagram, then here is a glimpse: I've been working at my home church for almost 2 years now and I recently got promoted to do social media for the church. When I accepted this job 2 years ago, I always hoped it would lead into something that the Lord had for me but didn't really have any sight of what that could be and never did I think that I would be getting paid for something I use everyday and that I love to do. I've also entered into a new relationship with my boyfriend David (those words do not sound normal yet!) With everything coming together and happening a lot has been happening on my schedule. I have been so busy and rushing but also feeling confident and accomplished. I know that the Lord is really lining up my life for the future and to see His timing and His plan all come together is an incredible feeling.

With life getting all crazy on me, I feel like I haven't had any pamper time or "me" time. For months my shoulders and neck have been feeling anything but normal and I have had the same knot in my shoulder for about as long as I have been working at Calvary. My sisters boyfriend is a massage therapist and so I decided to book an appointment with him. Let me just say it was probably the most well spent hour of my entire week.. or month for that matter and I will be going back very shortly! Next on my "to do" list was to head over to Rapid Med Spa and get my OxyGeneo Facial which felt so amazing!

There has been a story that i've wanted to tell for a long time and I am going to tell that story in 3 parts. This first section of my story, has been shared a few times over various platforms. I have shared it on The She Laughs Project, my Instagram, and even on my blog. There are a few new faces here and I wanted to share in detail my story for those who may never have heard it and pray that it blesses everyone involved.

The Most Important Question Ever


Coffee or Tea?

Okay, so it’s not the most important question, but some may argue the fact that it is! For me, the answer is 100% coffee, ALL THE WAY!

My Spring Must Have's

The weather in Vegas has been really nice for a little while now and it honestly makes me nervous that it is already mid 80's because you know what that means... it is going to be a HOT Summer! I have pulled together some of my favorite styles for Spring this season and you will find that there is a bit of a trend floating around my picks.

Lately I have been loving pinstriped shirts, a lot of blue, and muted army green. What styles have you been loving lately?

Embroidered Everything

Guys, there is a new trend in town and I am loving it. Embroidered Everything!! Tops, Jackets, Jeans, everything embroidered! I recently found out about a website called ROMWE and when I looked at the clothing and the prices, my mouth dropped! I have never seen so many cute items at such a great price and you gotta know that I filled my shopping cart up real quick!

This year has really become a year of saving for me and ROMWE has become one of my new favorite clothing sites because of their cute style and amazing prices! I can't wait to show you the embroidered items they have on their site!

When the embroidered trend was just coming out and everyone was wearing embroidered mom jeans, I could not hop on that bandwagon and then I saw Lindsey from The Nomis Niche wearing an incredibly cute white and baby blue striped shirt with embroidery on it and I immediately wanted it. Now I'm obsessed!

I do have to say that I still only like the items that are a little bit more toned down rather than the 90's mom jean but still, I am all about the embroidery these days!


What trends have you been loving lately? Let's talk fashion in the comments!

How To Set A Budget Plan / Free Downloadable

Guys I am so excited for todays post! It is coming a little late and we are well into the New Year but, it is never too late to set a budget plan right?! 

I don’t know about you guys, but I am so bad at saving! I love spending my money (I mean what girl doesn’t) But this year I really need to whip myself into shape because I’m not getting any younger and it’s time to be an adult (insert an “Adulting is Hard” Meme here) 

Earlier in the year, I met with a friend who is really good with his finances and he helped me come up with a budget plan that I want to pass onto you, because I know I really benefited from it and I want the same for you! #NewYearNewYou So enough rambling, lets get on with the plan!

Love, Love, Love

It's nearly Valentines Day! I thought it would be appropriate to talk about love languages and my top three love languages.

Change The Meaning Of Valentines Day

So we all know that Valentines day is approaching and for some of us who have a significant other, it may be a great holiday but for others it is one of the more dreaded Holidays. I have been there with the latter group before and I want to tell you how I started looking at Valentines Day in a different way.

In America, Valentines Day is a day of love for your significant other and if you don't have anyone it kind of leaves you hanging in the dust but in some cultures it is a day of friendship and relationships. How awesome is that? There is no expectation of having to be in a relationship to be able to celebrate Valentines day. Since I have spent every Valentines day single, I want to change my attitude about it and start being thankful for the friendships and relationships I do have in my life.
