Get Out The Door


August 26, 2014 by Katie

Many of us have seen the Pinterest inspiration pins telling you that getting out the door is the hardest part of a run, or any kind of workout. Which, personally, I think is 100% true: once you get going, it’s so much easier to keep going. Getting started is the hardest part about a workout.

This past week, I realized that this sentiment holds true to so many other areas of our lives as well:

Writing an email, cover-letter or paper for school.

Favorite Fashion Blogs


August 22, 2014 by Katie

I’ve always been into the Healthy Living Blogs, but recently I’ve become a big fan of Fashion Blogs. They’re great to browse through, pin to Pinterest, and get ideas of how to incorporate things into your own style and wardrobe.

Here are some of my favorite Fashion Blogs:

Thursday Thoughts


August 21, 2014 by Katie

Well hey there! You may (or may not…) have noticed that I haven’t been posting much, especially this week. Well, a lot of things have become a bit overwhelming over the past couple of weeks and my mind is just not on the blog. My temp job is ending in a few weeks so I’m really focused on trying to find something new, in addition to a much busier social calendar, an upcoming trip, and some other personal life stuff. I hope you’ll bear with me through this busy time and hopefully I’ll be back at it soon!

But now, without further ado, this week’s Thursday thoughts!

Thursday Thoughts!

1. So remember last week when I had all that glitter and you wanted to know what it was for? It was to make stuff for my friend Julie’s Bachelorette! Including her sash and some sparkly champagne bottles!

2. For her bachelorette, we went to Dry Bar to get our hair done, Taco Joint for food and margaritas, and then to a couple clubs in River North! We all had a great time AND we even saw NICK from the Bachelorette! I may have yelled “HEY NICK!” at him. Don’t worry, he waved back.

Instagram Lovin’ – My Favorite Accounts to Follow


August 13, 2014 by Katie

Alright, we all know Instagram is the social media form of the moment. I mean, what’s not to like? You get a photographic look into someone’s life, you can read their caption, and you can comment! Plus, for those of us who post, it’s a fun way to share what’s happening in our lives AND be a little creative!

Today I wanted to share some of my favorite public instagram accounts! I did not include other bloggers because that would just be too many! Here we go:

DoTerra Body & Wellness Products


August 12, 2014 by Katie

Hey everyone! Happy Tuesday!

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m a HUGE fan of DoTerra Products! Before I shared with you some of my favorite essential oils, although now I have so many more so I’ll have to do another post on that soon!

Not only does DoTerra sell essential oils, but they have a ton of other products too, including body and hair products, wellness products, supplements and more! Today I wanted to share with you a few of the wellness and body products that I’ve tried out and love!

Thursday Thoughts

Hey everyone! And happy Thursday! Although not super happy… I woke up this morning thinking it was Saturday… then realized it’s only Thursday. So sad. Anyway, on to this week’s Thursday Thoughts!

1. So for this week’s OOTD, I apparently forgot to take pictures on both Monday and Tuesday… Soooo you only get the last two days. But they’re both summer dresses!

Just Keep Reading…

MORE book reviews for you all! These three are some of the books that I read while I was on my trip to Europe. Although I was busy all day in Paris and Barcelona, I had plenty of free time in Alicante to relax and read!

The first book is The Woman in White by Wilke Collins.

My New Workout Plan: None


August 5, 2014 by Katie

When I started this blog a huge portion of it was dedicated to workouts and training for races. At that time in my life, and for a couple years following, working out was probably the focus of my life. I was desperate to lose weight, which to me meant working out 1-2 hours a day, 6-7 days a week. Any day that I missed, I felt guilty. I constantly felt like I wasn’t good enough, which only made me push harder. I avoided social outings and isolated myself because I didn’t want anything to get in the way of my goals.
