Thank you for supporting the brands that support me. #lenscrafterscrowd  I’ve been telling you all about some of the great features found at Lenscrafters and so this weekend I decided to test out all those features in person by visiting my local LensCrafters store and having an eye exam. Scheduling my appointment was easy. I just went online, found a LensCrafters in my area and made the appointment. I even got a text reminder a couple of days beforehand to remind me about my appointment.  When I arrived at the store checking… View Post

All opinions are mine alone. #NourishWhatMatters #CollectiveBias In 2015, I had a lot going on no seriously 2015 was the first year I actually used a Day Planner to help keep my life together.

Okay, so you guys now  had to do an obligatory New Years Resolution Post. Last year my main resolution was to step out on faith and turn my blog into more of a lifestyle blog. I succeeded in this and had so many amazing opportunities come my way. I traveled to New Orleans, worked with some amazing brands, and even started a business called Broke on Purpose.  So, now that I’ve basically recapped 2015 let’s talk about my goals for 2016. I’m calling them goals instead of resolutions because to me the word “goals” holds more power. I’m a firm… View Post

  With it being the end of the year and all I’m excited to share my 2015 hairstyle review. This has seriously been a great hair year for me! I did some serious experimenting. This was probably the last year that I was really going to be able to have fun and try different styles before heading back into the workforce so I did it all. I grew out my hair from a low cut, then chopped it off into a tapered style. I got bored with that and shaved off my sides, then I got really bold and shaved… View Post

I’ve never been super picky about my toilet tissue. I just always knew that I wanted it to get the job done with ease. Of course, I’m not a fan of that one ply economy toilet tissue but I’d dealt with it growing  up. I was actually pleasantly surprised to find two-ply toilet tissue on the roll during my last visit. This may have been a doing of one of my sisters, but this was one change I was more than happy to accept. My husband and I usually purchase our toilet paper in bulk. I’m not sure which one… View Post
