Podcast I’m loving

Processed With DarkroomWhat do you do when you are washing dishes, cooking, or some other chore that reminds you that being an adult is not fun? I like to listen to Podcasts. Over the last couple of years, my podcast list has gotten larger and larger. Podcast are so amazing and I love how they make doing some of the most boring chores bearable. Here are a few of my favorites I am listening to right now.

  1. Dave Ramsay- I’m sure most of you know, Dave Ramsey the money guru. I am big into personal finance, I love learning different ways to make your money work for you. My favorite part about this podcast is the end when they share the stories of those who got out of debt.
  2. The Influencer Podcast- This podcast is all about influencer marketing. It helps keep me up to date on all things pertaining to the influencer world. I love Julie’s approach to keeping it real with what’s really going on.
  3. Goal Digger– Another influencer marketing podcast, I enjoy this show because it reminds me why I love doing my blog. The passion behind Jenna’s business keeps me going. She is so relatable, and down to earth.
  4. Joyce Myer– We all need a little Jesus in our lives. Joyce kicks my but every morning with her no-nonsense love for Jesus. We all need people to keep us accountable and Joyce does it for me in the podcast world.
  5. True Crime– Pretty Much any true crime podcast will always strike my fancy. Currently, I am listening to season 2 of Up and Vanished… it’s so good.

If you haven’t started listening to podcasts give it a try. Depending on your device you can find all sorts of interesting things to listen to. Comedy, health, business you name it I’m sure a podcast has been created on it.

Hi Friends,

I am writing this message from sunny California. Frank and I came out here to attend some All Star Weekend activities. Prior to coming, of course, we had to pack, which is my favorite part of traveling. I know that is weird. I think most people are not a fan of packing, but I love it.

I decided to do a flat lay of one of the outfits I plan on wearing while I am there. Typically, when I pack, I like to take pictures of my outfits. It helps me to keep things organized. I have those pictures on my phone, but I look a mess in them and decided to avoid embarrassment and not post them 🙂

Be sure to keep a look out on how I style the outfits from my tip.

Fall Fun List

Hi Friends,

Now that is is September, I think it is only fitting that we start talking about what fun things we want to do this fall. Fall is my favorite season for activities. I always plan big things but rarely get around to the things I am excited to do. This is going to be my year, I plan to do at least two of the items on my list.

ou're invited to an

What are you most excited to do this autumn season? Let me know, I would love to add to my list 🙂

Spring To-Do List

IMG_3789

  1. Go on a road tip- As long as I am not the one driving, this is the best thing to do on a nice warm day. It is the best when you hop in the car and drive to a place you haven’t been before and spend the day exploring.
  2. Start gardening- I have to admit I don’t have a green thumb and don’t have much interest in planting, on the other hand things look so much better when you plant some pretty flowers in you front yard. I did this for the first time in the fall and loved the way the yard looked.
  3. Ride my bike- Let me ask you, as an adult have you been on a bike ride? If you haven’t it is one of my favorite things to do. The weather has to be just right, if you take a leasure ride with amazing scenery you will love it too!
  4. Run 3 miles in 30 minutes- This is a new goal I have set for myself. I am not the best long distance runner, but there is nothing wrong with striving to be better. I love to work out and challenge myself. I will keep you posted and let you know if I ever succeed.
  5. Stop and smell the roses- I tend to run myself very thin. This spring I want to take more time for myself and relax more.

A Casual Easter

In honor of Good Friday, I am sharing a fun outfit that would be perfect for Easter. At my church we “Come as You Are” meaning there is no dress code. Honestly, this takes off a lot of pressure when getting dressed for church. Not saying it doesn’t really matter, but not having the feeling you are under dressed or over dressed when going to church is great. Typically, I like to dress up a little bit just to show my respect for the occasion. I can go on and on about this topic but… lets discuss this outfit.

I wish every Easter was warm. Getting dressed would be so much easier. Right now, in the DC area it is not warm. I had this dress for years. It has a shimmer to it which adds some eloquence to the look. Notice, just in case it gets too chilly, I have on stockings to help keep me warm.  You know I love my flats. In my opinion, leopard goes with everything. These are by far my favorite pair of shoes.  They are so comfortable and add some fun to the outfit.

Flea Market Finds

Hi Friends,

In the spring and summer my family visits the Baltimore Flea Market and Bazaar (mostly for the food) but we always have great time. One particular time we found a stand that sold these dashikis. All the women in my family purchased one. I had mine stored in my closet for quite sometime. After I purchased these boots, I thought they would go really well together. It was actually a very comfortable outfit. The boots added that touch of something special 🙂

Five Year Dating

Good Morning Love Bugs,

Today is my five year dating anniversary with my husband Frank! It is so crazy when I saw that it was five years today, I was shocked that it has been that long, three years sounds more accurate. I guess time really does fly when you are having fun. I can’t believe this summer we would have been married for two year. Goodness!

In honor of our anniversary, I will give you all a fun fact about us. We actually, met on the very first day of undergrad. At our school on move in day, they have a Freshman Welcome Party… there is where we met.

I hope you all have a great day today 🙂
