After I finished my half marathon, I contracted a serious case of the lazies. I did a lot of sitting, snacking, and TV-watching. I’m not mad about it–it was pretty fun while it lasted. However, having to purchase new (larger) jeans as a result of my laziness was not so fun. The good news is that I look incredible in my new, size 10 skinny jeans. The bad … Continue reading 10 out, 10 back
Looking for a fun fall activity to do with your friends or family? Well, I’ve got the idea for you! No, I’m not going to describe ideas for a cute, hipster photo shoot among the falling leaves. Nor will I describe the perfect fall crafting project for holiday gifts. Although both of those posts may happen in the near future. I’m talking about a purge party. No, … Continue reading Purge Party (Not What it Sounds Like.)
I did it! I ran a half marathon and I didn’t fall and break all my limbs. Although, my limbs did feel a lot like spaghetti when I was done. I feel so proud and accomplished. Let me share a little bit about the race. I ran the Ath Half, a half marathon that twists and turns around my beautiful city, Athens, Georgia. After my … Continue reading I signed up for a half marathon, then I ran it.
It has been approximately one million years since I have posted a running update. Here’s a quick list of excuses followed by an actual update: I never followed through on my post “I signed up for a half marathon, so now I have to run it” because I physically couldn’t run it. Thanks, food poisoning! But really… I got food poisoning two days before the … Continue reading I promise, I’m still running.
My journey to becoming a minimalist has been slow and steady—more slow than steady, to be honest. It has been more than a year since my sudden urge to purge. I have not retreated back to old ways, nor have I gone to any extremes with my reduction in stuff. My apartment is full, but not overflowing. I purchase new items occasionally, but I rarely … Continue reading Slow & Steady
Trigger Warning: In this post, I discuss mental health and body image. I would love nothing more than to inspire others to love themselves and hope that this is the only outcome of sharing my story. I’ve really been giving myself a hard time today, so I thought I would reach out to the blogging community. I didn’t mess up at work. I didn’t get a … Continue reading Healthy mind, healthy body
Big news, folks! I won the #StitchFixFriday contest that Stitchfix does every week. I’m so excited! I won with a photo I took on my trip to LA (that I casually never posted anything about because of a situation with food poisoning… so use your imagination there…). I was so grateful to receive a $50 credit and I went ahead and scheduled my next fix … Continue reading Stitchfix Review #5
My bags are packed and I’m ready to go… to LA! I am so excited about this trip. I get to hug and hang out with one of my greatest friends, run my first half marathon, and hopefully soak up some sun before I head back home! I’ll be away for seven days and I don’t know what kind of fun I’ll be getting into, … Continue reading Minimal-ish Packing: Georgia Girl Hits LA
It’s been a little while, but since I had a credit (woo! thank you to whoever clicked on the link!) I went ahead and ordered another Fix. I have to say that this was the best box I have received thus far and it was challenging for me not to buy everything in it. Here’s what I got… The note was so sweet and … Continue reading Stitchfix Review #4
I am proud to say that my one month trial of my 50 piece wardrobe went well! First, let me recount all the times I cheated on those 50 pieces by adding new pieces: January 31: I added a cute necklace and some heels to my Little Black Dress to dress it up for a gala February 15: I added a crochet top to make my Valentine’s … Continue reading 50 Piece Wardrobe Recap
