Apartment-tour

Hey, guys! Today I’m showing you a tour of my apartment! If you’ve been following for a while, you saw my last apartment tour, but I’ve since moved, and I would also like to think that I’ve gotten a little better at decorating, too! A lot of my furniture is the same, but there are also a lot of new pieces from HomeGoods, Ikea, Target, Michaels, Urban Outfitters, and, since you know I’m a thrifty girl, we’ve even gotten a couple pieces from the side of the road! As always, shouts to my boyfriend Jay for letting me take (almost) complete control of the decorating! The apartment is a teeeensy...

Himalayan-sole-diy

Hey, guys! Happy Wellness Wednesday #2! Today’s post is a DIY for Himalayan salt Sole (so-lay), which is filtered water that has been completely saturated with pink Himalayan salt! This drink provides soooo many health benefits, so it’s a 2018 goal of mine to start my day off with a glass of sole every morning! – WHAT IS HIMALAYAN SALT – Himalayan salt is a natural salt from the Himalayan mountains. It’s chemical free, it’s packed with minerals and nutrients, it provides numerous health benefits, and best of all, it’s PINK!

the-beauty-chef

Hey, guys! Today is the first day of a new segment “Wellness Wednesday” where I hope to publish a wellness-related post every Wednesday! I also changed the category name from “Happie Thoughts” to “Wellness + Happie Thoughts”. I really want to focus on writing more wellness posts here on the blog because I think wellness is extremely important, and I think everyone needs to pay a little more attention to their overall wellness!! If you saw my most recent YouTube video “what I got for Christmas“, you know one of the things I bought with one of my gift cards I received was The Beauty Chef, an absolutely GORGEOUS cookbook...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: New Years Resolutions!

Hey, guys…HAPPY NEW YEAR!! ✨✨ I can NOT believe it’s already the New Year!! It’s been a minute since my last blog post where I’ve actually written something! The holiday season has been SO chaotic and I have been living in two locations so I have not had a lot of time to sit down and write, even though that’s really not the greatest excuse….. Today’s post is all about my New Years resolutions! I have quite a few, and although I’m not the type to “start once it’s the new year” (I prefer to start NOW, or as soon as possible), the new year is a great benchmark to...

thrifting-for-basics

Hey, guys! Today’s post is to show off my three new basic pieces that I bought at the thrift store, and to spread awareness that you can find perfectly good things while thrifting! As you know if you read my blog, I LOVE thrift shopping. I think it’s a great way to find super stylish pieces at prices that seriously can’t be found anywhere else. Every time I go to the thrift store, I come back with GEMS, and because I spent such little money, I’m usually way more excited about my purchases! One of my favorite things to look for when I’m thrifting are basic style pieces like solid...
