I keep praying for Spring and getting snow, I think that I need to change my thinking around so that all the snow can hurry up and melt away! It keeps snowing and I am 110% done with it! The only good thing about it is that I get to wear cute sweaters and my OTK boots that I have been wearing non-stop since I got them on Christmas break. Best $20 Nordstrom Rack find ever! I know that you really have to be in the mood to search when you are there but it is totally worth all the searching in the end when you find a deal like this.
If you knew my mom you would know that she loves bold and unique pieces that really stand out against what everyone else is wearing. And she always looks amazing, I am jealous of her ability to pair anything together and look great! For Christmas this past year she gave my sister and I the most amazing leggings that are so funky and fun! She loves skulls so naturally along with a fun striped pair of leggings, I get these cool skull ones from her. These helped me to step out of my comfort zone and try something super new! I wore these to a late lunch with Houston and when we were leaving someone was telling their family to look at my skull leggings, so if you want a statement piece people are going to notice then these are for you!
With Valentine’s day on the way in a couple weeks I wanted to put together a great Valentine’s night out look that is classy and elegant. I love this all pink look, but putting together a monochromatic look can be a little tricky so here are my tips to killing an all pink outfit! This cute modest look is perfect for anyone who wants a little pink in their life!
Well I think that I was wishing for warm weather a little too much because its been snowing since Wednesday night! I am so glad that I was able to enjoy the weather while it lasted! Now I am back to over sized sweaters and doubling up on my socks.
It’s hard editing these pictures and putting these posts together now that I am back in Rexburg. I just miss the Sacramento sun so much! I literally drove my car for 15 seconds to the mailbox the other day because I didn’t want to try and cross my apartment complex that is currently covered in a thick sheet of ice. Lazy or genius? I say the second 😉
Hello hello! Welcome back! My mind is already on Spring and hopeful thinking that Idaho will have warm temperatures again (very wishful thinking on my part!) It has been FREEZING cold here with a whole week that was just -1 to -29 with windchill. It was so bad that one of our cars just refused to turn on so it was fun trying to use one car between the two of us for work and school but we made it through and when it finally warmed up to 20 degrees the car gave in and started for us. Needless to say its been a rough start of the semester for us! We are only on week two and I already want it to be over with!
My big Christmas present from Houston this year was an Apple Watch. I never thought that I would own one of these but after hearing about how much my sister loved hers and reading more about it I wanted to give it a try. Best decision ever! I use it way more than I ever thought that I would. I have a pair of wireless headphones and paired with the watch it makes working out, texting, and talking on the phone a breeze.
And with every new accessory you need accessories for your accessory. Do you follow? Let me introduce you to Bytten. They make accessories for the things you wear everyday, your Apple Watch, your Fitbit, your Jawbone, all things that could use a little spicing up! I love my watch but I wanted to make it match my personality more, to add a little bling to make it fun! My watch has the rose gold mini glam stack on. How cute does it look?! It adds such a fun touch and is truly one of a kind. You can even get other stacks and double or triple up to really bling out your watch! I don’t think that you can ever have enough bling, I am really tempted to get another stack so I can layer them up. And if you have a Fitbit they have a ton of really cute stacks that you can add to those too to really make them pop and look cute! These are one of a kind and make great gifts too if you know someone who could use a little sparkle in their lives!

These pictures were *obviously* not taken in icy Rexburg and looking back at them makes me miss home so much! These outfits were perfect for the sunny weather in Sacramento.
This is my favorite new go to shirt from Ava Rae Boutique because its a great stand out color and can be styled in so many different ways! Here I have styled it to be more dressy and paired with my favorite moto leggings for a more casual look. I love both!
New year new you, right? I am so ready for the start of a new year! Last semester I feel like I really got off track with my goals and am getting back to the place that I want to be. I have tons of goals this year. Work out, eat healthy, journal, read my scriptures and pray more consistently, plan meals, and so many more things that I want to work on!
One of my biggest goals this year is to write things out and be a better planner. For me writing things down and making lists is so important because it keeps me accountable and organized! Plus, being able to mark things off on my lists makes me feel so good too. One of my new favorite tools to help me be better about this is my LYTE planner, AKA my new bff. This planner has it all. One of its many amazing qualities is that each page is dedicated to a full day so I don’t feel like I have to skip writing things down because I don’t have enough space. I get to write down the tasks that I need to accomplish that day along with all of my homework assignments and still have room for more. Plus there also is a section for the meal plan for each day which is another big goal of mine! Another really special part of this planner is that it is all goal oriented and about “finding your truth.” I love this quote from their website that really sums up what sets their planners apart:
“The LYTE Planner is about defining who you truly want to be and how you really want to spend your time and building your life and schedule around those answers. The LYTE Planner starts with the “Truth Resolution” letter where you define who you want to be and what you want your year to look like. The LYTE Planner is also full of “Truth Prompts” which are one-of-a-kind journal pages that exist to help you nail down answers to the harder questions and prioritize the people and things that matter most to you. Each day in the LYTE Planner also starts with a “Truth Focus” which is there to keep you centered and focused every day no matter how crazy your schedule may get! Finally, the LYTE Planner has extras like a “Bucket List” and “Goals” sheet to keep you dreaming, discovering, and doing! More than anything, the LYTE Planner encourages you to live from your place of truth so you can create a life that you’re truly proud of.”
Who doesn’t want to live a life they love and are proud of?! I know that I do! And sometimes when we don’t feel like we are doing super great that can be hard and cause us to lose motivation (that was me the last couple of months!). But I know from experience that when we are doing the things that we are supposed to, when we are writing down our goals and dreams and working towards accomplishing them, that we are going to feel good about ourselves and have that motivation to keep going. The times that I have felt down about myself have been the times when I have not been doing the things that I should be doing and I lost sight of the woman that I want to be. I wasn’t staying organized or working out or eating healthy. But when I made the choice to change the things that I wanted to change (like going to the gym and plan out healthy meals) I have felt so much better and had more motivation to set new goals.
I know that we all have goals and dreams and things that we want to accomplish. I also know that when we write these things down and look at them daily that we can really work towards them and accomplish whatever we put our minds to! Because we all want live our own truths everyday.
*LYTE planners are now on sale for only $32. Trust me, you will not regret buying this! We can all work on our goals and plan together 😉
