This week's QOTW is a day late…but hey better late than never right? A lot of things have been happening behind the scenes here at home, and while I keep meaning to update you guys, somehow with everything that's going on and no matter how much sleep I try to get, I'm always exhausted. This week for sure, I will get you updated and share some exciting news!

But this QOTW is definitely in tune with how I've been feeling lately. It's just felt like no matter what I do things are more and more difficult. There have been several times when I've thought about quitting everything all together. Blogging, the business I want to start. But I couldn't bear to give up on things I had been either doing or wanting to do for so long.

Here's to trying, and then trying harder even when the world seems to be telling you to quit.

Be The Best You

A quick pop in today loves, I’m working on lots and lots of post for you guys! I’ve got so much planned that I’m excited for, it’s nice to finally have the drive to do things again. ❤

be the best you

Until then, I just wanted to share what my mantra has been lately. This has been the quote I’ve been using to remind myself to keep going, to keep pushing forward, and to keep trying to better myself.


You’re A Firework

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I’ve had the unfortunate luck of running into some stress and anxiety over some stuff, causing me to lapse into a little bit of depression. So I’ve been absent, because when I feel low I can’t write. And I’ve been so tired lately it’s been a struggle just to keep up with normal life. So, in light of recent events and the upcoming holiday, this week’s QOTW is 

You’re wonderful, and bright, and special. Never forget it. Do your best, try your hardest, and let the world know how loud you can be. 

I’ll be posting an update soon, keep you posted. 😘 

All You Need…

Ok. Let’s get one thing straight.


People will tell you that “you don’t hate Mondays, you just hate your job”. And you know what, for some people, this may be true. In fact, for the majority of the population it probably is. That’s the difference between a job and a career. But that’s a different post entirely.

But even if you love your job, or you have a full on career, or if you’re a stay at home parent, heck even a highschool student, Mondays suck. Getting up earlier than you’d like, dealing with people you don’t necessarily enjoy dealing with (it’s called customer service, and even if you’re working at your dream job it’s something you’re gonna have to put up with) and having more or less the same schedule every day. It gets kind of boring sometimes.

If I’ve learned anything during my life, I’ve come to know one thing. It’s that…

pixie dust & coffee 2017

 Yes. That’s right ladies and gents! All you need to get through your Monday (or any other day for that matter – who knows, you may be reading this on a Friday from hell) is just a little bit of faith, trust, & pixie dust….with a giant side of coffee of course. 😉

I decided that I loved this design and quote so much that I even resized it for a phone wallpaper!

What’s your way of getting through a tough day? Do you have a secret weapon that you use to battle a bad case of the Mondays? Let me know in the comments below! ❤

Nothing Comes From Not Trying

Happy Monday! I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day, and that ya’ll’s weekend was awesome! This QOTW stems directly from how I’ve been feeling lately – which is to say, I’ve been feeling like doing absolutely nothing.

2017 nothing comes from not trying

I’ve been so caught up in moving and work that I’ve neglected my blog, my plans for my business, and even my own well-being.

That being said, I also haven’t exactly tried. I haven’t attempted to sit down and make a blog post. I haven’t really allowed myself time to do anything with my business. And most importantly, I haven’t let myself sit back and truly relax and take care of myself. It’s been forever since I did my nails just for me, or even played any video games. I’ve been focusing so much on getting my life together yet at the same time I’ve been letting everything fall apart.

So here’s to trying. Here’s to making an effort. To giving it a shot. I need to try harder – I need to DO. Because, of course, as we all know, it’s do or do not. There is no try.

Luckily, I have this entire week off, so I’m hoping that it will not only allow me to give myself time to play and really enjoy myself, but to get a good life/blog/business planning balance going.

What have you been neglecting in your life?
