It’s HERE! My new site is LIVE!

I am so, so excited today because my new website is officially LIVE! This re-design has been something I’ve dreamt about for a very long time, and I cannot believe it’s right here in front of me. It’s actually REAL!

New layout, new logo, all new everythang! I definitely didn’t do this by myself, I have to give credit where it is due…and believe me, you’re going to want to know who the talented women behind these pages are…


Hello 2016.

2016 is here, and I’ve been ready for it.


December 18th marked the half way point of “game-changing ” 27th year. Since then, I’ve done nothing but continue to change up the game….and I don’t plan on stopping. While the New Year brings that “fresh start” feel that you can’t help but love, I’ve been on the “New Year, New Me” high for 6 months now. This year, I’m not relying on the flip of a calendar to motivate me…I’ve already found my motivation. 2016 simply represents more opportunity, positive change, new adventures, and personal growth. 🙂



Tomorrow I turn 27. #scary

This year, I’ve taken my birthday as an opportunity to step back and kind of reevaluate my life. For the past few months, I’ve been thinking about where I am, where I thought I would be, and where I still want to go…



Blogmas 2014 – Day 11: Gift Wrap Inspiration

Good Morning & Happy Blogmas Day 11!

One of my favorite things about Christmas time is wrapping gifts. Seriously, I love it. I ALMOST got a part time job at the mall this year as a gift wrapper for the mere fact that I enjoy it so much.

I love picking out new paper & fabulous ribbon each year. There’s nothing better than a gorgeous patterned paper or a thick/metallic print. Ahh, I love it.

I loved my silver alligator paper & red bows a couple of years ago (found the paper at Marshalls!) 🙂

OK – point of this post… I haven’t picked out my wrapping material yet – I just haven’t come across THE paper. I’ve been browsing Pinterest and other sites to get some inspiration & wanted to share my wrapping vision for 2014 😉

If I could pull it off - THIS is very similar to what I have in mind :)

I do know how to do calligraphy - this could be really fun!

I love the wood grain paper & satin bow - still pretty with or without the extra embellishment!

I'm really loving polka dots paper this year.

Decisions, decisions! I’ve finished a *very* little bit of Christmas shopping – hoping to knock most of it out by next week, so I’ve got a little time to figure out my wrapping paper situation.

I’ll be sure to do a gift wrap post when I’m done! 🙂
Do you enjoy wrapping gifts?

What kind of paper are you using this year?
