Dance Like No One's Watching- Music Mix


Here's a playlist I whipped together rather quickly of some songs I've discover over the past two weeks. Going back to my previous post, remember to have a random dance party and let loose at some point throughout the day!

Call It a Plan Not a Dream



Okay fellow dreamers, let's get real. I know how fun it is to let creative ideas dance around in our heads and how euphoric it feels to let imaginations run wild, but it's time to get serious. Now if you want your dreams to stay dreams this post isn't for you.

I Gave Up My Headphones For A Week And This Happened


Yes, it's true. I spent a week without my headphones...and survived. I didn't do it to challenge myself or for any sentimental reason other than...my headphones broke which is really nothing new. I keep making the terrible decision to purchase those cheap 9 dollar headphones hoping this will be the pair that lasts.

Adulting is Overrated...Most Of The Time

Adulthood

Becoming an adult has been an interesting, confusing, hard, wonderful, transforming period of my life. I've had many periods where I felt like I had absolutely no idea what I was doing and times where I felt like I could take over the world. If I could describe it in one word it would be progression.

My Realistic Morning Routine


Every blogger at one point has typed a "morning routine" post. They tend to look a little like this: wake up at 6 AM, check emails, walk the dog, go for a 3 mile run and cook breakfast with ingredients from every food group in the perfect lighting for Instagram pics. Every time I read these posts, I am amazed at their commitment to so many activities so early in the morning and underwhelmed by my own morning routine.

Beauty Review: Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation



A week ago while on a quick store run I picked up the Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation in golden beige. What caught my eye was the price tag of $5.99 and in the past I've found some great products from this brand. I haven't read many reviews so I wasn't sure what to expect.

5 Things Introverts Are Tired Of Hearing


You're Too Quiet- Really because I feel just fine. Just because someone isn't talking your ear off 24/7 doesn't mean they're quiet. Introverts take time to process information that's given to them and think through what they're going to say. In our minds, it doesn't make sense to say something when there's no value being added. There's not a "one size fits all" way to communicate or learn, so try and be patient with your introverted friends/coworkers.

When One Door Closes Another Door Opens


So I'm currently sitting in the library a little frustrated, confused and annoyed. Without going into any details, I'm anxiously waiting for news that could impact so many things. The more I think about it the more nervous I get, but now I'm coming to another realization. Don't put all of your trust into material things or people.

Spring Fashion Must Haves 2017



I can hardly believe winter is over...well kinda. It's still a little chilly here, but what do expect when you live in Michigan. On a brighter note, I am so excited for the warmer weather that is approaching. Have you ever noticed how everyone's mood and the entire city changes each season? Once spring comes it's like everyone comes out of hibernation! The sun shines longer,  a quiet city is now bustling and heavy coats and sweaters are traded for light weight jackets and dresses. 

This season I am looking forward to adding new pieces to my wardrobe and trying out different trends. I admit, I'm not always the most fashion forward person. A cute t-shirt and jeans tend to be my go-to and who could blame me being that I'm a college student. Walking across campus to class almost everyday keeps cute clothes at bay. Since the semester is almost over, I've been trying on different outfits and creating looks that have me anxious to get finals over with. 

One of my favorite trends that I hope never goes away are shirt dresses. I swear, whoever came up with this trend specifically thought of me. They're the perfect combination of cute and comfort. I recently collaborated with Tobi to show you all some more examples of my favorite spring fashion trends and ways to style them! Check them out below!



The first look is perfect for a casual day out with your friends or running errands. This striped shirt dress is so soft and breathable so I highly recommend it if you live in a humid city. A cute choker is the perfect statement piece and Converse seemed undeniable when putting this outfit together. 





The second outfit channeled my bohemian side which is well...all of me. I rarely wear dresses or tops that are off the shoulder so this pushed me outside of my comfort zone. I love how effortless this dress is and I added a skinny braided belt to help define my shape. Ankle booties are comfortable, quick to throw on and really pulled this look together.






Last, but not least is an outfit that features a gorgeous sweater dress that fits like a glove. I love the side pockets and simplicity this dress brings all while being classy. It really stands out on its own so I paired it with nude sandal high heels and a matching embellished clutch.



Comment below which outfit is your favorite and check out Tobi for more fashion inspiration!



Have a wonderful day!

Cool and Intereseting Websites You Need To Know About


It's Monday and we're adjusting to Daylight Savings (ps I miss that hour of sleep) so I'm here with a post full of cool websites that will make your day a little brighter! 

Objects I Can't Afford: It's hard to believe that "Objects I Can't Afford" came about just last year. This website is exactly what the name says. You will find a collection of items the author wants, but is out of her budget. I think people love it because we all can relate to wanting random items that we can't afford and compensate by having multiple wish lists. Have fun scrolling!

Honest Slogans- I don't think this website is updated very often, but it will give you a good laugh. The very first one is an ad for Pokemon Go with the word "outside" inserted at the bottom. It's clever and I'm pretty sure everyone has thought this. Fun fact, a few weeks ago I almost ran into someone that was trying to catch a Pokemon. My favorite one has to be Guilt Trip cookies instead of Girl Scout cookies!

The Oatmeal- If you love comics this is for you. These clever and hilarious comics often surround everyday situations, trends and thoughts we've all had. I can't tell you how many times I've read one and thought, "omg I know right!" There are also cats...lots and lots of cats.

Pixel Thoughts- This website is my favorite on this list. When you go to Pixel Thoughts, relaxing music starts playing and stars are floating in the background. There's a text box where you type in something that is bothering you. Once you hit enter, the text appears in a star and starts to shrink. While this is happening reassuring text is displayed. It reinforces how our negative thoughts are insignificant and truly left me feeling better.

Touch Pianist- If you've always wanted be an amazing piano player, but never got the hang of it, here is your chance to shine! Just use your keyboard and press in the rhythm that is shown on the screen. The correct notes are already there so you're just bringing the song to life!

My Script Font- I haven't used this yet, but I'm so excited to try it out! I've been wanting to make my own font for my graphics, but it always seemed difficult. With this website all you have to do is fill out the template, scan it, upload it, give your font a name and you're done!

Bored Button- Sometimes it's incredibly hard to find something to do, but the bored button fixes that. Click the button and you'll be taken to fun and quick activities. When you're finished with one, click the red button again to see what's up next.


Let me know which website is your favorite?


Have a wonderful day!

Link Roundup: Fickle Friends, An Animated Short and Balloon Fruit


It's Friday and while I typically reserve my roundups for Sunday, I couldn't think of anything else to write about. I've been working so hard on building my blog traffic and collaborations so in my "free time" I browse the internet for some inspiration.

DIY Balloon Fruit - If you're ever in need for a great DIY project, bookmark "Oh Happy Day." This DIY is just one of many.

On Living Alone- Marie Andrew has once again taken my thoughts and put them down on paper as an illustration (except I only have one closet). Nonetheless, living alone is the life!

This animated short made me smile and proved that even cartoons have a better love life than I do. If it doesn't warm your heart, I don't know what will🌟



Last, but certainly not least are my latest music discoveries. I swear finding new music is like hitting the jackpot...ok maybe not that great, but really close! Fickle Friends is one of my favorite bands so when I heard they had a new single I had to check it out. It's of course a winner in my book and will be on repeat until further notice!




Have a great weekend!

Links Worth Clicking: Getting Real, Music and DIY's



The theme for this weeks' roundup is "getting real." I came across a few posts that had me nodding my head in agreement and feeling like the author was reading my mind. It's not easy to talk about loneliness or stress, but it feels good knowing I'm not the only one. Granted, I wouldn't wish negative feelings on anyone.  Of course I had to include a pretty diy because...glitter! Also I'm loving this song by Alayna. It's been on repeat all week long!
