My Fall Essentials!

Hey guys!

Today I have a really fun post to celebrate the Fall season. I’ve put together all of my Autumn essentials that I can’t live without! We’re talking everything from skincare, to coffee, to nails. Let’s get started!

Fall Manicure How could I not include nails in this post?! Fall shades have to be my favorite to work with! Burgundy, deep blues, and greys are just some of my favorites to rock!

Lip Balm- Hydration is your best friend in the Autumn season. There’s nothing cute about dry, chapped lips that split and crack. It’s always a great idea to keep your favorite balm in your bag at all times. My favorites include more natural ingredients!

Fall Latte I must admit I’m a pumpkin spice lover! However, any Fall flavored latte really hits the spot on a chilly Autumn morning. What’s your favorite flavor??

Fall Boots I have to say I’m a sucker for a good pair of boots. Fall fashion is my absolute fave! Throw on a pair of heeled booties or lace up combat boots and your outfit is on point!

Moisturizer If you’re anything like me, your skin changes throughout the season. Mine is currently super dehydrated! Moisturizer has become my best friend!

Virgo Season | Life Update

Hey guys!

Today’s post is going to be a little bit of a life update, salon update, and whatever else comes to mind..haha!

My birthday was on the 14th of this month and I turned 25! In my mind, 25 was always a milestone birthday. Growing up, I would envision my future with age 25 being the time when I was married and had my first child. Now that the year is here, it’s made me reflect on my current situation and goals for my future.

This month marks my third year as a licensed nail tech, and I’m insanely grateful that I’ve started my 7th month in business as a salon owner! It has been a slight struggle, with good weeks and bad weeks, but I’m thankful that I get to do what I enjoy everyday and be in control of my career. I have wonderful clients and a super supportive family and boyfriend that make it all worth it. If you’d like to read all about my natural nail spa, check out my post here.

Beyond that, I’m finishing up my last semester of college and will finally have a business degree by December!! That was a goal I’ve seen for myself for years now, and I’m so excited to have that in my reach.

Still no marriage or babies, like I used to envision, because my views on that have slightly changed. However, my boyfriend and I will celebrate our 5 year anniversary in December! So here’s to being 25 and the exciting year ahead! Happy birthday to all of my fellow Virgo babies out there! Thank you all so much for reading. I hope your day is awesome; love and light! :)

Weekend Kayaking and Soul Searching

Hey guys!

Today I wanted to share my little weekend adventure with you guys! With the hustle and bustle of everyday life getting so hectic lately, I haven’t made the time to get out in nature like I typically do. My weekend activities usually include hiking and kayaking, but I can’t tell you the last time I made the time for it in the past several months. I could definitely feel the toll it was taking on me and I was not in the most positive mindset.

So, this weekend my boyfriend and I loaded up the kayaks and headed out to a new place on the river in Alabama. We unloaded at the top of the waterfalls and paddled up-stream for a while. The water was calm and the scenery was gorgeous!

We stopped several times to just sit in the middle of the river and listen to the sounds of nature. This was the perfect opportunity to close your eyes, breathe, and just be.

I definitely recommend taking a trip like this if you’re in need of clearing your mind. If you find yourself too caught up with trivial things in everyday life, this will definitely help you press the “reset” button. When you slow down enough to just listen to the world around you, you will create a much happier mindset for yourself!

The weather was perfect: super sunny with a cool breeze, which we loved! Thank goodness neither of us fell in because the water was SO cold!

Thank you all so much for stopping by! I’d love to know what activities you like to do to change your perspective. Let me know in the comments below! I hope your day is awesome; love and light! :)
