Winter Book Reviews

My favorite part about breaks has always been the plentiful amount of time I have to curl up with a good book! Reading is my absolute favorite thing to do when I have a significant amount of free time, and this winter break I decided to knock out a few that have been on my reading list recently. Most of these books were written by authors I'm a die-hard fan of, but I also snagged Michelle Obama's memoir, which I blew through in a matter of a couple days because I couldn't set it down! So, without further ado, let's get into my honest thoughts about the books I've read this winter. 

Tips for Practicing Patience + $100 Giveaway

Hey y'all! Boy oh boy has this post been a long time in the making... I don't think I'm alone in believing patience a tricky trait to possess, and as some of you may know, I'm now going on three years' worth of goals and resolutions revolving around this topic! I have an incredibly futuristic – and sometimes stubborn – mindset leading to patience being something I struggled with (and honestly, sometimes still do), but I'm super excited to share with y'all an update and some tips alongside one of my favorite Midwestern brands! 

Side note: I was having a hard time choosing which photo to put first, so I put the one with the peace signs as a placeholder. Honestly though, I'm kind of digging it now, and I think I'm just going to roll with it because it's a true embodiment of my mood as of late haha!  

Friday Favorites

Hey y'all! Happy Friday! I'm currently writing this between my two classes today. This is super random, but does anyone else have issues taking their professor seriously if they don't use commas correctly in their presentations?? It's probably just a me problem, but gosh does it bother me haha! Anyways, now that that's off my chest, I'm very excited to share with y'all my favorites from this week. Stores are slowly starting to introduce some of their spring pieces, which has made me dream of warmer weather every day. Plus, there were several blog posts I read this week that I'm sure y'all will love, too!

My 2019 Mantra

Hey y'all! I can't believe this is my first time on here for 2019! I just started my last semester at K-State on Tuesday, and gosh, is it surreal to think about graduating in May! This year, in lieu of creating a list of goals and New Year's resolutions, I decided to choose a phrase to live by. This has definitely been a trend in the blogging sphere, but honestly, I'm all about it. I originally got the idea of navigating away from a list of resolutions from one of my favorite bloggers Brighton Keller, and I think it's a great way to look at life more holistically!
