Valentine’s love dinner // at home

I absolutely love Valentine’s Day, and every year growing up my parents would have a “love dinner” with me and my brother. It’s always so difficult to make reservations and plan to go out, so they chose to have a nice dinner at our house. We would all dress up and cook and decorate the house, so it felt so special. I put together some ideas if you want to have a “love dinner” too.

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.

surviving the red eye // 10 tips

Traveling back and forth across the country several times a year has made me a bit of a pro when it comes to overnight flights. Red eyes are typically the best way for me to go back to school without it taking up an entire day (thanks to the different time zones).

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”
