I wanted to round up some of the items I’m adding to our home from Target! Everything is under $100 and most pieces are under $50. Adding small pieces like faux plants, candles, and wall art make such a difference and are an inexpensive way to spruce up a space!
I can’t believe it is February 5th today! 2020 has been off to such a quick start. I still feel like Christmas was just yesterday! Does anyone else feel that way?
My hope is that today’s blog post will help us all spend a little time being mindful and intentional as we enter into the second month of this new DECADE! I felt such a profound shift at the beginning of this year. It has been such a wonderful time to let go of things that no longer serve. Think old habits, mindset patterns, anxieties, fear, etc.
At the end of December, right before 2020 begun- I selected my words for the year. In previous years, I’ve always done resolutions and that just doesn’t seem to feel authentic to me anymore! This year, I’ve picked words that I want to represent my year and really my life going forward- to guide me along the way. I am vowing to hold them close to my heart and to remind myself of them as I go throughout my days.
My words for the year are: VIBRANCY, UNDERSTANDING, SELF- ACCEPTANCE, COMPASSION (FOR MYSELF AND OTHERS), MINDFUL, AND ABUNDANT.
I truly love all of these words and hope to reflect on them just a little bit each day. This isn’t to say that I will always feel vibrant but hope to remind myself that the core of who I am is always vibrant, no matter what is happening around me, in my life, or in my body.
The way that I selected these words to be MY words for the year: after spending time journaling and meditating, they came to me very clearly! If you aren’t a meditator, no worries. Put on some yoga music or music that feeds your soul. It can be anything that YOU love! My favorite lately has been music by Karen Drucker. She is on Spotify so easy to find! I also love to light some sage, get out my favorite rose quartz, and light a candle.
Release the need to find the “perfect” words and know that the right ones will come to you. The words can be anything you want to bring into this new year and decade. For me, I vibrancy is the biggest one! In 2019 with my health – I did not really feel vibrant a lot of the time so it is so important to me to create that feeling even if I don’t always have it to start with. I hope that makes sense! I have been spending lots of time lately recognizing the truth that what we focus on expands. So, if we identify these special words and hold them close to our hearts it can be very powerful.
No matter what you are going through in life, remember that our circumstances and challenges aren’t what define us! It is really the way we react and respond to them.
Ever since I had the flu around the holiday’s, my health has been a bit of a challenge. Getting a really bad virus sort of “stirred up” the Lyme co-infections for me and has been really frustrating. I don’t talk about it much on Instagram because I don’t really want to focus on it much. It has been hard but at the same time, I know it will pass again like it has before! It is all a lesson.
I would absolutely LOVE TO HEAR your words for the year. I am so thankful to connect with all of you everyday & for this platform of likeminded women!
Happy Thursday! We are almost to the weekend, woo woo!! This past weekend Dylan and I headed out to the Sonoma County coast for sunset during my birthday weekend. It was incredibly stunning and such a special evening because of the gorgeous weather- this doesn’t usually happen in during January in Northern CA!
For my birthday weekend festivities, I wore some of the new boho cuff bracelets that just launched from Victoria Emerson! I am constantly wearing wrap bracelets from VE because of how cute they are and how easy they are to style! They have one simple clasp so they are extra simple to throw on – you don’t need to worry about pairing tons of bracelets together. The bracelets I’m wearing in today’s post are also perfect for spring and summer! I LOVE the bright colors and bohemian vibes. They are very versatile and chic while still having the “down to earth” vibe that I love so much from this brand. My favorite gold watch is also from VE and is linked here. It is a great price and wonderful quality!
Shop my picks below and check out their latest collections here!
They are doing a BOGO (buy one get one) sale for the new collection!

The older I get, all I really want is to be comfortable! Gone are the days of wearing shoes that hurt my feet or give me blisters. These days, I want to invest in quality pieces that will last. I had been on the hunt for the perfect white sneakers for a long time and THESE ARE THEM. I started working with ECCO recently and fell in love with their booties for winter. They are insanely comfortable . I could go on and on about them and do in this post.
I loved ECCO’s winter booties so much and knew I needed to branch out to try some of their other shoes. I actually purchased Dylan a pair of these same exact sneakers in the men’s version for Christmas from Nordstrom and decided I needed a pair after he raved to me how comfortable they are. When he opened them, he told me he wants them in every single color and never to get him another shoe brand. HA!! They are that comfortable. When I received the same sneakers in this white women’s pair, I knew what he was talking about. They are like wearing a cloud. There really isn’t much of a break in period and the quality is amazing! ECCO is actually known for their comfort level and what I love most is that you don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort. Often times, comfort brands LOOK like comfort brands… You know? Not this brand.
These white sneakers are easy to keep clean with sneaker wipes and seem like they will last for years as long as you take care of them. They’re made of leather with little bits of suede. I would say that they run true to size! They also come in 13 different colors and men’s options like I mentioned above so they make a perfect gift for your husband or boyfriend!
Shop my favorite white sneakers here! Trust me, they are such a hit. They also come in men’s sizes and are also Dylan’s favorite sneakers.
Thank you to ECCO for sponsoring this post! As always, all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands I love!
Today I wanted to share the theme I’m doing for this year’s gift wrapping! I hope it can give you some inspo to have fun with the gift wrapping process and not be afraid to stray from the traditional red and green! This year I wanted the wrapping paper to really tie in with our home decor and tree so I stuck with golds, tan/ neutrals, muted greens, and silver with a touch of sparkle and pink! I love the bohemian vibe that the paper I picked has. Everything is from Target and I linked what I could find below! I found all of this in the store.
I am SO excited to tell you all about the Victoria Emerson BOGO sale that is going on right now! It is such an incredible sale for the holidays. These wrap bracelets are some of my absolute favorite accessories because they are so easy to throw on & look like you put tons of effort into accessorizing a look – but really didn’t need to think too much. What do I mean by this? They are essentially stacked bracelets that have one clasp so they easily hook and stay put!
Victoria Emerson also has stunning watches and thinner wrap bracelets. The rose gold watch I’m wearing in all of these photos is from also VE! I picked one up for my Mom for Christmas and can’t wait for her to open it. For her, I picked the smaller gold watch with the white face.
If you have ladies in your life that you still need to find gifts for, the boho cuffs and watches make the prettiest gifts. They are wonderful quality and hold up well over time! There is also nothing better than a buy one get one free sale!

I am all about being comfortable and stylish at the same time. I think it’s so important to find items of clothing and accessories that are not only cute but also very comfortable. I recently found the MOST comfortable pair of booties for this fall/ winter season and literally could not wait to tell you about them. They are like walking around on a cloud and also compliment a sweater, jean, and hot coffee situation like no other. It is CHALLENGING to find the perfect pair of booties and I’m excited to say I’ve found them.
Really, all you need is one insanely comfortable and versatile pair of winter booties that you can throw on with any outfit and you’re good to go! Let me introduce you to my current favorite pair, from ECCO. They are a dream for your feet and truly feel like a warm hug for your toes! The flexible sole and 35mm-high block heel provide a little lift without being too high. They also have what’s called a “hidden heel” that essentially gives you extra hight without making it more challenging to walk or wear for long hours. Yes, please!
For my go-to fall and winter look, I paired them with colored denim, an oversized chunky knit, and a matching bag. Essentially, this is my uniform during this time of year! These particular booties come in both brown and black, I went with brown because I tend to wear more creams, neutrals, and winter green colors.
I also think the booties would make a fabulous holiday gift for the style lover in your life who also likes to be comfortable. In general, I love the ECCO brand because they create comfort shoes that don’t LOOK like comfort shoes, you know?
