Very few things in life are as peaceful as early mornings. The air is cool, the sun is rising with all it’s beautiful colors, and the birds are just beginning to chirp. The worries of yesterday have faded away and the opportunities of today are on the horizon. I’ve always thought that mornings were the best time to think and create.

No matter how beautiful the early hours of the day are, not all of us are born with the natural ability to wakeup at 5am and immediately jump out of bed to soak up all the magic. We’d rather hit the snooze button until our responsibilities come creeping in and demand our attention.

If you’ve been trying to wake up a bit earlier but have been struggling to get up and get moving, here’s some tips that might help!

TGIF, everyone!

If you’ve ever tried to save money for anything, then you know it’s not always as simple as it sounds. It’s easy to trick ourselves into thinking “Oh, just one coffee today won’t break the bank”, and “I’ve earned these $100 pair of shoes I didn’t know I needed until right now.”

Happy Wednesday!

On Monday I mentioned one of the healthy habits you can add into your life this year is to take some time for yourself and love yourself a bit more.

It’s no secret that we live in a world filled with high expectations. Living in the digital-age has made it very easy to compare ourselves to other people. The truth is, as much as we know we should, it’s hard to love yourself when you’re constantly bombarded with images of perfection and impossible standards.

At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re at in your life, we can all benefit from a little more self-love.

My Travel Essentials + Tips/ Hacks

travel-essentials

Hello Everyone! It has seriously been ages since I wrote a post! This semester has been a crazy one. Between work, school, and some major life transitions I found it hard to keep up posting regularly. Now that the semester is over ( thank god ) I plan to stick to a regular schedule.

With the holidays right around the corner, I know many people will be traveling. I personally will be visiting multiple cities in just under two weeks!  Plus, half of my family lives in Chicago and half lives in California, so I regularly travel between those two cities. I always get so excited for my trips to see family, of course, but also because I love to get organized and pack my suitcase! Over the years ( and through learned experience ) I have developed a system for myself when I go on my trips so I know exactly what I will need to bring to have a comfortable flight. I have tried many “hacks” on Pintrest; some worked and others, well, not so much. I’m going to be sharing some of my in flight essentials as well as practical tips that have helped me get the most of my travels. Whether your going to be traveling for two weeks or two days, hopefully you get some tips that you can take with you this holiday season!
