Holidays are huge in my family! From Christmas to Easter to Halloween and every holiday in-between, we just love “celebrating!” Birthday’s in particular have always been huge in family. In fact, I spent my 24th birthday two years ago at Disneyland Paris and for my 25th birthday last year, my mom surprised me with a Disney Cruise vacation. 

Speaking of birthday’s, Loki recently turned three on Valentine’s Day. How cool is it that his birthday falls on an actual holiday? It seems like it was just yesterday that I walked into PAWS Chicago and fell head over heels for a fluffy little three month old Dachshund-Retriever mix puppy. And knows he’s THREE

What’s a birthday without the perfect gift, am I right?

TRESemmé Compressed Micro-Mist: Style Without Stiffness

February 16, 2018

*Special thanks to TRESemmé for sponsoring today’s post! As always, all opinions are my own*TRESemmé Compressed Micro-Mist
If you couldn’t tell by the name of this blog, I’m all about the simple things in life. Going on a nice stroll, curling up with a good book, puppies, browsing my favorite museums. I’m all about simplicity. So when it comes to styling my hair, I try to keep things as simple as possible. 

I’m not going to lie, I’m no hair expert. In fact, 90% of the time my hair is usually thrown up in a messy bun. (Oh the struggles of having extremely thick and curly hair). This becomes a bit of a problem during the wintertime since buns + hats = not going to happen. So lately I’ve been having to wear my hair down more often (so it can fit inside my winter hats). Recently I’ve been on an endless search for the perfect hairspray to hold my naturally wild curly hair in place.

And I think I JUST found it!

5 Ways To Beat Boredom

February 9, 2018

This post was sponsored Tai Pei, all opinions expressed in my post are my own.
It’s kind of weird because although I’m probably the most SPONTANEOUS person I know, I’m also one of those people who really thrive on having some sort of schedule (I guess I’m an oxymoron!) With the New Year in full swing, I’m slowly getting back into the groove of things (and my schedule is starting to normalize again.)

While it’s easy to get bored in your day-to-day routine, sometimes all you need is the crunch of something new! Whenever I feel like my routine is getting a little to predictable (which, let’s face it, gets boring fast), I try to mix things up a little. Sometimes I decide to take a different route to the mall. Or somedays I decide to take my lunch break a little later than usual. It’s those little things that spice life up and break us of those boring funks!

Here’s five ways to beat boredom:

With a New Year comes new resolutions and goals. One of my biggest goals for this year is to make sure that my dog, Loki, is as well-cared for as possible. Since Loki’s getting older (he’s turning three on Valentine’s Day), I really want to make sure he’s eating the proper food to keep him happy and healthy. 

Let’s face it, all good dog owners want to keep their dogs healthy. We love our dogs, and we want them to be as healthy and happy as possible. Just like it’s important that we have healthy diets and stay active, the same goes for our furry friends!

I think it’s time we all re-think what we’re feeding our dogs.
