Simple Starbucks + Panera Hacks

Simple Starbucks & Panera Hacks

Here’s the Thing… Whenever I go out to Panera or Starbucks (a couple of my favorite places, btw), I always end up spending like 10 bucks on a drink and something to eat. I’d like to say that “I set out to intentionally discover ways to save money,” but the reality is, I’m cheap. And the thought of consistently paying…

Paso Robles Trip Guide

Paso Robles Trip Guide

Here’s the Thing… During my most recent trips to Paso Robles, I walked into one of my parent’s favorite wineries and said, “It smells like my childhood.” Now as a 22-year-old who has only been of legal drinking age for about a year-and-a-half, this may seem like a strange statement. However, Paso Robles isn’t your average wine country. While the…

California Coast Road Trip Guide

California Coast Road Trip Guide

Here’s the Thing… Growing up, my family and I always traveled. Big or small trips, there was always something to look forward to. But the one I remember most from my childhood was driving up the California Coast. I have such vivid memories of pilling in the car early in the morning before the sun was up, bundled up in…

December Ipsy Glam Bag Review

Ipsy Glam Bag Review: December

Here’s the Thing… I love getting mail. I always have. However, getting mail is a little boring these days. (Student loan bills, anyone?) So I have to send fun mail to myself!

There are those weeks where it feels like the days just drag on and on. And each week seems to blend with the next. And before you know it, a whole month has gone by! I am…

3 Reasons Eyelash Extensions Are NOT For Me

Three Reasons Eyelash Extensions are not for me

Here’s the Thing… I don’t have the worst eyelashes, but I definitely don’t have the best. I have always been so jealous of my friends who have nice, long eyelashes; their eyes just seem to pop in a way that mine never will.

48-Hour Road Trip

48-hour Road Trip

Here’s the Thing… You may think that when I say ‘48-hour road trip’ I am talking about going someplace close for a couple days: maybe up the coast, or possibly down to San Diego, or maybe something super crazy, like Arizona or Nevada. How about 11 hours to Farmington, New Mexico? I can’t say this trip was the most thought…

5 Ways to Prepare for the Week Ahead

Five Ways to Prepare for the Week Ahead

Here’s the Thing…   The weekends are my happy time. Actually, I think they are most people’s happy time (unless you have some sort of food service/customer service job; I feel ya).   I just love sleeping in, hanging out with family and friends, never taking off my stretchy pants; it’s a dream.   But, all good things must come…
