HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Finding your Community

Hey, guys! Today’s post was sparked by a conversation I had with my best friend about a week ago, and then randomly again with my boyfriend just days later. We were talking about how every hobby or profession comes with its own little world, as long as you dig deep enough! For example, there is a massive “beauty” community on Instagram, and we all share products, hashtags, ideas, inspiration, and even certain terms that someone who wasn’t involved in the community wouldn’t know about. On the opposite end, there’s a kayaking community of people who know everything about kayaking, from obscure apparel brands to the rules of the water, and...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: I Hate the Rain but the Flowers Love it

Hey, guys! All I have to say about all of this rain is UGH. Where did the sun go???? I’m all for a nice romanticized summer rainstorm- the kind at the end of an extremely hot week when it starts down-pouring even though it’s still hot outside and it sounds #SoZen, but this!! It’s been raining for 40 days and 40 nights. I’m ready to be tan, to start wearing shorts, to go to the BEACH.  Everyday I’m so annoyed with the weather…and then I remember, it’s not just humans living on this earth. The plants, trees, rivers, they all need this rain. The rain is more than some picturesque...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Summer Appreciation Post

Hey, guys!! – Just a little Summer appreciation post for ya today – This morning I woke up at 9:15 in my tiny little bedroom.  My windows were wide open, the fan was blowing, and the sun was blasting through my lace curtains. The air felt like summer air, ALL the birds were chirping outside, and I had missed texts from my mom and sister inviting me to the beach. It felt like summer was telling me “I’M HERE”, and it was an overwhelmingly euphoric way to wake up! – It all got me thinking about how happy Summer makes me, so I made a list of all of my...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Monday Inspiration

Hey guys! I wanted to share a quick little inspirational quote I came across the other day while reading Sophia Amoruso’s book Nasty Galaxy.  “Until you’re ready to look foolish, you’ll never have the possibility of being great” – Cher  – I thought this quote was perfect to start off the week – I love this quote because it’s so true! Most of the time being great and successful is exclusively associated with positivity and feelings of happiness, but sometimes just going for it and making ourselves uncomfortable can produce the best results! Being uncomfortable can feel like you’re working in the wrong direction, but you will get through all uncomfortable...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: The Law of Attraction

Hey guys! Today’s post is the first of (hopefully many) posts about happiness and being more positive in life! In my new category “happie thoughts” I will be either writing long posts, sharing quick little tricks for making day-to-day life better, or even just sharing quick little positive affirmations! I’m no psychologist or happiness expert, but I honestly believe that being happy is one of my strengths in life- so why not share my secrets with as many people as possible?! In terms of Nature vs. Nurture, I was born happy. I have never suffered from depression or anything really like that, and I am extremely aware and thankful for...
