Life Update | July 2017

Hey, guys! It’s been a little while since I’ve written a blog post and I’ve missed writing and blogging so much. I’ve been feeling really uninspired and realized I just needed to take a step back and remember why I started blogging in the first place. This is something that I go through on occasion and it totally bums me out, but I have to remember that it’s just a time to press refresh! In today’s post, I thought I’d give you a little life update since we’re over halfway through 2017 already. Read down below to find out what’s been going on with me!

The most recent development in my life is that Gary and I started a plant-based lifestyle. After growing up in the South where barbecue is king and vegetables are few and far between in meals, it’s been quite the transition! We decided to do it for health reasons and have been loving it so far. At first, it was quite difficult because we were on the road a lot, but now that we’re settled back in, it’s been really good! I’m enjoying trying plant-based foods and cooking new recipes so much! If you follow a plant-based diet, let me know of any recipes you love down below!

Gary finally launched his website after having worked on mine for so long! I’m so so excited for him because his dream is finally coming to life. I’ve been finding him clients, which has been so fun! He is the Ecommerce and Marketing Manager at his job and then he also builds websites on the side too!

In other news, in case you didn’t know, I opened my online store! I’ve been having so much fun with it – I honestly wake up so excited to get to work in the morning, which is everything I’ve ever dreamed of. I actually just ordered a few new arrivals yesterday, so I can’t wait to share what I ordered with you! I also bought the cutest bag last night and I’m thinking about selling the brand in my store because I think you guys will LOVE them! I think I’ll post a photo of it on my Instagram Stories this afternoon, so be sure to stop by to see it and tell me what you think! Also, I’d love it if you followed along on Instagram – if you comment on my latest picture that you came from the blog, I’ll follow you back!

As for the blog, I’ve decided to go back to posting three times a week! I’ve missed that side of my life online, so I thought what better way to get back in it then blogging more often. I’ll be going back to my schedule of Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I’ll be writing about fashion, beauty, blogging, travel, and maybe a little bit of business! If you have any requests, comment down below and I’ll take note!

I hope you all are well! Be sure to check back on Monday for a new blog post!
