Euphoria

This is the first series I’ve highlighted, its the new HBO show, and I am OBSESSED! The characters are so deep, there is so many levels to them which is something I LOVE about HBO shows! This show deals with heavy relevant topics like drugs, alcohol, sexuality. It shows you all shades in a realist show that you will become addicted too!

“Staying vulnerable is a risk we have to take if we want to experience connection”

-Brene Brown

Brene Brown is my girllll!! If you haven’t watched her viral ted talk or her Netflix special you NEED too!! Her lives work is about being vulnerable, and living whole heartily as yourself! I chose this quotes because last week I really opened up about my BIGGEST insecurity (on my IG) It was scary, and hard but I cannot tell you the love and connection that I felt afterwards. It also brought me back to my why. So I say as a reminder or incase you didn’t know, there is so much power in vulnerability, and it feels so good to live your life that way.

Ted Talk    Netflix Special

 

ANY WAYS!! HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT JULY 4TH IF YOU ARE CELEBRATING!!! I LOVE YOU!

  • Movie, Series, Documentary, or Podcast

Vance Joy

He is seriously the BEST!! I am OBSSED with every album he’s ever put out! “Dream your life away” is my FAVORITE album of his but I also LOVE “Nation of Two” !! His stuff is dreamy, super chill, and puts my soul at ease!! I love to listen to him when I’m relaxing, or getting ready for the day! It puts me in a good mindset, his music evokes clarity for me.

Beautiful Boy

This movie is so important, it perfectly and chronologically tells the story of addiction. It is BEAUTIFUL from start to finish. You will probably cry, and find yourself sucked into this true life story. Beautiful Boy is the most beautiful story about heart, tenacity, and a fathers love, through the devastating experience of addition. It gets ugly, and real, but its a mesmerizing master piece! You can watch is on Amazon Prime!

Mi.iM Shoes

EDB0A8AA-2BE2-4955-B467-9E9F6508707F

Okay so I just got these shoes for a sponsored IG post I’m doing but I am OBSESSED with them!!! They are kinda funky, but they add so much to everything you wear them with and they are still so neutral! I love  good statement shoe, and these go with so much more then I though they would!!

It Cosmetics Foundation!!

This is the holy grail of foundations!!! Its so moisturizing, but its not going to completely whipe off like most moisturizing foundations.I consider myself a connoisseur of foundations! You name it and I have probably tried it! This stuff is AMAZINNGG! It’s super buildable and its full coverage which is super important to me because I have huge patches of discoloration on my face. Sometimes I feel like its all people see despite others reassurance. So FULL COVERAGE without looking caked is a MUST!! I’ve been using this one for about a yearish and its everything you could want in an everyday foundation! Also IT SMELLS SO GOODDDD!!

Quote Of The Week

Courage is the ability to climb the highest mountain even when you are afraid, and it is

Also the ability to rise and keep going on the hardest of days.

We all can have courage, but it does not always look the same.

-Morgan Harper Nichols

Another piece of gold from MHN! I’m needing a lot of courage with the things going on in my life lately. This quote is a reminder that I am still showing courage and showing up even when it doesn’t feel like it. It takes so much courage to do the right thing when its hard. Those moments of courage are where change happens, or where people are made.

Anyway! I love you guys and I am SO SORRY this post was a day late!!

OKAY LOVE YOU BYE!!

Balm dotcalm Glossier

I’m a huge Glossier fan in general, but this shiz is amazinggg! I’ve tried all the flavors (With the exception of Mango because its brand new) and the best is Rose, with a close second by mint. The consistency is think and creamy, they make your lips feel ssooo AMAZING!! PRO TIP: Put some one before bed each night and wake up with the most kissable lips you’ve ever had!

Get some HERE!

Quote of the Week

“And everyday, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling, “This is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this!” And each day, it’s up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, “No, This is what’s important.”

IMG_0120_Facetune_06-06-2019-16-37-52

This quote REALLY resonated with me, I ALWAYS have a heard time doing whats best for myself at the expense of others, and it can be a really great quality, but its also a horrible quality. You HAVE to know when to say no, as I’ve gotten older I realize how important that is. As hard as its been for me to learn, you can say no and still be a good friend, you can say no and still be a good person, you can say no and still have empathy, you can say no and still care DEEPLY about others! What you can’t do is allow others to stop what your are doing for yourself because its better for them! Yes be inconvenience yourself for  others, yes go out of your way for others, but know when to PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN!

Okay sunny amazing beautiful people! I have to go! Just know I love you and I hope you enjoy these FAVORITES!! Let me know your current favorites the comments below! I hope you have an AMAZING week filled with TONS of sunshine! byyye!!IMG_0211

Quote of the Week

“When you start to feel like things could have been better this year, remember the mountains and valleys that brought you here.
They are not accidents, and those moments were not in vain.
You are not the same. You have grown, and are growing, you are breathing, you are living, you are wrapped in endless boundless grace. And things will get better, there is more to you than yesterday.”
-MHN-

I’ve been feeling lately like I’ve just been spinning my wheels. (lol that sounds so dramatic) But really, Ive been feeling like I’ve been pushing forward in pursing my dreams, and that I’m not getting anywhere, I’m not making a difference, or progressing, and its been wearing on me.  Sometimes I scroll Pinterest at night especially if I’m feeling down. When I stumbled across this quote it brought tears to my eyes, I felt some much truth in it. I hope you can feel it too!

(The poet who wrote this is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITES she post super amazing quotes on IG you should follow her! HERE is the link to here IG!)

Okay thank you for letting me share! Let me know your current FLAVorites in the comments below! I hope you enjoyed this!!

This post is sponsored by AVA Grace Vineyards!IMG_0200

So, I’ve always heard that I am super positive and happy.  Don’t get me wrong, I definitely have my moments of darkness, but I typically share those as well as the sunny parts because life is a balance, and it’s hard to juggle it all most days. As someone who lives on the sunnier side of life MOST of the time, I felt like I needed to share a necessary component of life that often gets overlooked: the importance of spontaneity in order to live a happy life! It’s something a lot of people forget about, probably because people typically go about their daily routines doing all the life things – like work, and the dishes, and the laundry (and also Netflix!) But a lot of times people find themselves struggling to be content and don’t understand why.

IMG_6247_Facetune_05-03-2019-21-02-36.jpg

Spontaneity gives me new perspective, refreshes my mind, and allows me to give others more grace  It adds spunk and flavor, it can shake things up and make you feel alive again. After I do something new or spontaneous it clears my mind and leaves me feeling fresh! Adding spontaneity always gets me out of a slump, and makes me feel happy- I crave it. I think it’s something that you should seek out in your life often! Here are some actionable things you can do to add spontaneity to your life.

(This means getting out of your comfort zone! It doesn’t have to be anything crazy, you can do something simple!)

  • Try the new restaurant you’ve been dying to try– Actually, call them right now! Make a reservation if you have to! It will give you something to look forward to! Matt and I ALWAYS try the new happening restaurant in our town; side note: we also always rate it as the meal is going on! Ambiance, service, food, and overall! It’s so fun and it just adds a little fun to our day and date! There is just something about trying something new that’s exciting! You get to see a place you’ve never seen and experience it all for the first time. It’s refreshing!Bonus points if you find somewhere that’s BYOB with outdoor seating. Bring your favorite AVA Grace wines for an extra special evening out.
  • Take a spur of the moment road trip- This is probably my favorite ! (I have a travel bug!) Nothing gets the juices flowing like a spur of the moment road trip. Matt and I do this all the time! We will decide the night before and make a day trip to Panama City Beach or 30A and it’s always exactly what our soul needs.Think of somewhere you can go to get out of your town that’s just  a short car ride away. I recommend a 1-3 hour drive at the most, and just go! I recommend grabbing a bottle of AVA Grace  Rosé or Chardonnay on the way out.It’s  perfect for the spur of the moment, moment. Look up places you want to try on the way,and navigate to a picnic spot along your route with a pretty overlook for sipping your wine when you reach your destination. Just go and let the wind blow you where you may! (Matts and I road trips usually involve the sunset and wine at some point)IMG_6351
  • Trying a new wine– Sometimes you don’t have the time off work to go on a trip, or the money to treat yourself to dinner. In these cases I recommend grabbing a new fun bottle of wine and I highly recommend AVA Grace! AVA Grace can be found in your local store and it has the cutest labels – perfect for spicing up an ordinary night. I love the Chardonnay has notes of white peach, apple, lemon and hints of oak and was inspired by the loveliness of the California Vineyards. Grabbing a bottle of wine can give you a little something to look forward to, and gives you an excuse to let your hair down and channel your inner fun!IMG_0108IMG_6198_Facetune_05-03-2019-02-12-06IMG_6220_Facetune_05-03-2019-23-09-17
  • Do a staycation- Staycations are such a good way to take a moment and breathe in a new space. There is no pressure of traveling and allowing time for that, just all the time for FUN! This is something Matt and I do often – we have our go-to spots (Paradise Inn/Margaritaville), and in my opinion, this is the best way to add spontaneity. When I’m traveling I like to cram everything in, so the staycation is just a time to relax and breathe. I like to think about everything and nothing, watch the waves roll in, watch the sunset, and drink Rosé! AVA Grace Rosé is the perfect wine for a staycation- with notes of apricots, honeysuckle and hints of wild roses, it’s really perfect for anything! IMG_6201_Facetune_05-03-2019-02-20-44IMG_6256_Facetune_05-03-2019-21-06-10
  • Look up an event in your town and go- I do this all the time, I am ALWAYS on the lookout for events going on around town, I usually find them on coffee shop bulletin boards or Google. I’m always looking for a new experience that is going to broaden my horizons, open my mind and refresh my soul! I’ve been to local art galleries, live music, Weiner dog races, wine tastings, indie movie premieres, . and I’m never disappointed. At the very least it gets me out of my comfort zone and is the perfect refresher.
  • Make plans with a friend you haven’t seen in awhile- Call your friend right now! You know, the one who’s energy you’ve been missing. See if she can meet you for a quick cup of coffee, a beer, or even hop on a quick phone call. Sometimes you are stuck in your daily routine,  and putting forth energy to call someone just doesn’t sound fun. I promise if you are feeling BLAH, making the effort to call or hang with someone you don’t usually see (but whom you love) can do WONDERS for your soul and add the spontaneity you NEED in your life!IMG_6207_Facetune_05-03-2019-02-31-30
  • Cook a meal you’ve never made before- This pretty much falls under the category of doing things you haven’t done before. Even something this simple as making a meal will be something you remember and learn from, which always breaks up the monotony in life. Don’t forget to grab some AVA Grace wine to enjoy with your meal!

I hope this post leaves you feeling inspired to get out of the ordinary and do something different!
