inspiration board // march

Happy March!! For this month, I went with a very spring break & fashion-centered inspiration board. I LOVE the center photo and made it the focal point of the board because I get so stressed during school, so this is the perfect reminder to let my hair down and relax during spring break.

I added lots of girly details, but also edgy details (which almost perfectly describes my style). I love the contrast between the pink and the black, and the soft flowers mixed with the bold lettering.

I am loving the board this month, and I hope it inspires you for March as much as it does for me!

inspiration board // February

Since Valentine’s day is this month, I decided to use that as my major inspiration for February. As you can see the whole board is covered in red and pink and lovely things. I love Valentine’s Day and think whether you’re single or taken, a day of love should always be celebrated.

I hope you love my vision board for this month and feel inspired to create one of your own. I love having a space dedicated towards pinning the things I am motivated by. Continue reading “inspiration board // February”

new year // new project

Happy New Year Friends!!! I hope 2018 brings so much happiness and love into your life! I have learned a lot about myself this past year, and something I have realized is how much what I surround myself with directly influences me. I have a wall in my room filled with signs and sayings of things that motivate me or just make me smile, and when I walk past it each day, it is an instant reminder to be the best I can be. They remind me to smile, and be a source of light in a world that can sometimes seem so dark.

I have always been infatuated with inspiration boards, but have never really created them. I loved the idea, but thought that they took too much time and weren’t practical to create often. Since this is the start of the new year, I have created my version of an inspiration board, and plan to update it on the first of every month to reflect goals, aspirations, or just images that make me happy.

I received this hanging, heart cork board for Valentines day, and I had a few quotes and some pictures on it, but I think this provides the perfect base for my inspiration board. I wanted to keep it very simple so that it was easy to alter each month. I cut images out of magazines and found a quote out of a book that I placed together and hung on this cork board. When I see it, I smile. Continue reading “new year // new project”

who am I // a bit about me

I updated the layout of my blog and it no longer has the space for a “get to know me” section, so I decided to dedicate this post to just that!

So here it goes…

Basic stuff: 20-year old college student at the University of Florida, studying Family, Youth, and Community Science with a minor in Nonprofits and Organizational Leadership, from Las Vegas, NV (yes, people live there)

Fashion stuff: hoards shoes and owns way too many pairs (but loves every single pair too much to part ways), has a simple style but loves unique pieces, searches down bargains and basically only buys things if they are on sale

managing stress

Have you ever gotten to the stage of extreme stress where your eyes start to twitch? Unfortunately, I have been there too many times. Since I know stress is inevitable around this time of year, I wanted to give you a few little tips I use to help manage stress.

Recently, I have gotten more into essential oils and absolutely love them. At this point, there is basically an essential oil for anything and they seem to be a solution for any situation. Can’t sleep? Lavender oil. Congested? Eucalyptus oil. Trouble focusing? Peppermint oil. There are so many oils and brands out there today, and I love trying them all out. I am still learning which I like and work best for me, but I know with finals right around the corner, my stress-relief one will be heavily used. The combination of these two in my diffuser has been my favorite lately.
