Ipsy Glam Bag Review: January

Ipsy Glam Bag Review: January

Here’s the Thing… When I received this month’s Ipsy Glam Bag, I was a little worried. The bag looked like it belonged to 90s Barbie: Swim Suit Edition. Take a look for yourself: Neon colors galore. However, do not let the outside fool you! This bag was amazzzzzing and full of so many goodies! Stay tuned to hear what I…

Purposeful Progress: Personal Goals

Purposeful Progress: Personal Goals

Here’s the Thing… Up to this point, all the goals I have been aiming for in 2018 have been pretty big, lifestyle change goals. However, I think it is also important to have smaller, more practical goals too. Maybe it’s just me, but if I don’t write things down and have an action plan, they will never get done. So,…

In Pursuit of my Dreams

In Pursuit of my dreams

Here’s the Thing… I have had dreams before, but I have very rarely put actions behind those dreams to make them goals and then, hopefully, one day, reality. Some examples include becoming a marine biologist, becoming a vet tech or becoming an admissions counselor at Biola. Those were all big, important dreams to me, but when it came time to…

The Benefits of Speaking Out

The benefits of speaking out

Here’s the Thing… A few months ago I started the job I currently have now. The first couple weeks were a little dull, as I was still just getting into the swing of things. However, once I started diving more into the actual work, things got a little more complicated. There was a co-worker I would often butt heads with because…

How to Survive a Music Festival

How to Survive a Music Festival

Here’s the Thing… I am a big fan of live music. Even if I don’t know the band at all, I will still enjoy myself just because I love the energy that comes from concerts so much. I went to my first concert when I was 14 and have been tagging along with my mom to concerts ever since. However, music…

Purposeful Progress: Blogging Goals

Here’s the Thing… I have wanted to start a blog for as long as I can remember. Actually, I have started blogs in the past, but I never kept up with them. I have this problem where I get really motivated about something, but then I become uninterested shortly after. I’m sure lots of people have experienced that cycle. Well,…

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…
