HAPPY MONDAY! How was everyone’s weekend? What’d you all do? Anything fun and/or interesting? I actually had the busiest weekend of the summer. Friday we had dinner with Dane’s colleagues at Northwestern Mutual. On Saturday we took a road trip to see some family and attend my cousin’s house warming party (slash engagement celebration because her BF of 15 years proposed!!!). Then we continued the road trip on Sunday, heading into Pittsburgh for another family gathering! Such a whirlwind, but it’s always nice to see my extended family. It doesn’t happen enough.
So in case you missed it on Instagram, starting today I’m going to be blogging daily!! Honestly, this platform is my therapy and favorite hobby. I get into why I love blogging so much in my about me section if you’re curious. But this year has been huge for me when it comes to personal growth and finding balance. Deciding to blog daily came from a revelation that I need to do more things that I actually enjoy. I really hope that by doing something I love you all benefit, too.
That said, PLEASE, I beg — don’t hesitate to tell me what you’d like to see here! I want this blog to be interesting and helpful. I want to answer your questions, especially when it comes to life and style. So don’t be shy!! I don’t bite. 🙂
The olive shift dress I’m wearing in these pictures is the perfect staple for virtually any season, but it’s especially practical for fall. It comes in 8 different colors, runs true to size (but no stretch, FYI) and has raving reviews – I second all of them. Since it’s from LuLus, today I’ve decided to give away a $25 Lulus gift card! Like I said in last week’s post, these giveaways are all going to be based on participation. The more people that participate, the larger prize I can justify giving. I want to be able to go REALLY BIG one day (hopefully soon) — like Gucci bags, the whole shebang. So, please know, if you take the time to support me I promise I will do everything I can to reward you handsomely. AND BTW, that’s not a bribe. It’s just the honest truth.
