What I am Thankful for + Holiday Plans

Hey there beautiful people,

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am so freaking excited for Thanksgiving this week! I am so excited for some homemade food & some well-deserved relaxation time. This past weekend was full of studying for last minute exams and nonstop working on assignments, so needless to say I am 100% ready for a break. Thanksgiving is right around the corner & it had me thinking of all the things that I am truly blessed to have in my life! This season is the time to reflect & focus on those people or things that mean the most to you, which is why I wanted to share some of the blessings that I could not be more thankful for this season!



I know, I know this is the most basic item in my life to be thankful for, but I would not be where I am today without my family supporting me every step of the way. I hope none of you forget how truly amazing your families are & always keep them at the top of your thankful list!

Old & New Friends 

Of course my friends are next on my list! I love my friends because I know they always have my back no matter what & support me in everything I do. Here’s to making more memories with my friends both old and new. I am so thankful for all of you!


He has been so patient with me these past (almost) three years, which has made me feel so loved. I am so thankful to have him in my life. His constant love & support that he gives me in every aspect of my life could not mean more to me. I am so proud of him & proud to call him mine. I can’t wait to celebrate more moments with him & I love him so very much!

Coffee Coffee Coffee 

Always thankful for caffeine. Let’s be real it’s the only thing that has been fueling me this semester!

My mental & physical health 

Lately I have been pretty sick & I finally started feeling better (thank god) so I am so thankful to be healthy! This semester has really been testing my mental health between classes & struggles with my own personal battles, but I am feeling so much better now which has been an amazing feeling. Mental & physical health is so important so everyday is really a gift when I am able to get up and go about my day!

My education 

I have been so blessed to be in college these past (almost) four years & I am so excited to be graduating next spring! I have learned & grown so much over the past few years in my education & I cannot wait to see what lies ahead for me after I get my degree.

What are some things that you are thankful for? Share in my comments! 

There is so much more that I could list that I am thankful for but then I would be writing a novel for you. I am so excited to be going home today to see my family & spend a few needed days with them! This is Nick’s first time coming with me to celebrate Thanksgiving in Detroit with me so I am all sorts of pumped. After Thanksgiving, we only have 2 more weeks of classes til finals for this semester & then… CHRISTMAS BREAK! Lots of holiday fun for this Christmas & then my last semester of college. Holy cow that is crazy to think about! There is so much to look forward to & so much fun that I cannot wait to share with you. Have an amazing holiday & I am so thankful for every single one of you who take the time to read my blogs. It truly means so much to me. I’ll talk to you all again soon!

Latest Obsessions + November Goals

Hey there beautiful friends!

Holy cow it is already November. I literally feel like summer just ended & now we are in full swing for Thanksgiving & CHRISTMAS! I have not gotten my Christmas vibes on just yet, but I am excited for the next few weeks to come. I apologize for not posting anything lately. I have been tied up with school work & to be honest, my creative energy has been at an all time low for for writing. Normally in the fall I am motivated & ready to kick the semesters butt, but lately it seems to be the other way around. However, this week has me feeling all sorts of motivation & the content I have coming for you is going to be awesome. With that being said, I am super pumped to share with you my latest obsessions & goals for this November season!



Oversized Scarves 

Living in Michigan has taught me to embrace cozy sweaters & oversized scarves for the cold Fall/Winter days we have here! I found this adorable new boutique called Le Fleur & if you live in the Grand Rapids area you HAVE to check them out. This cute boutique is reasonably priced & has the cutest selection of stylish pieces including my new oversized scarf! It my new favorite fall staple piece in my closet and I cannot wait to post pictures of it for you. I have found these scarves to be super cozy but also incredibly comfortable!

Girls Gotta Eat Podcast 

If you have not checked out these girls yet, you are really missing out! Girls Gotta Eat is a podcast that basically talks about anything & everything you could imagine. I listen to this podcast on the go at any point during the day & boy do they make me laugh out loud! If you are looking for a new podcast to put a smile on your face & give you advice for daily struggles, then this podcast is totally for you. I think my favorite episode has to be “F*ck you Carrie Bradshaw!” It is a totally honest discussion about Sex and the City & how flawed some of the plots are. By far the funniest one I have listened to from them!

Turtle Neck Sweaters

This is a style that I never thought in a million years I would ever choose to buy but, for some unexplained reason one of these sweaters ended up in my online shopping cart. The verdict is in, and I absolutely love it! It is so cozy & the sweater I found is oversized, knit and practically perfect in every single way. I bought it from Love Culture so if you are looking for a warm cozy sweater for the cooler winter nights ahead of us, then I highly recommend you check out this sweater style!

Grown Alchemist Polishing Facial Exfoliant 

I received this product in my fall FabFitFun box this year & I have been non stop using it! It smells amazing & the results were kinda unexpected. I don’t use it very often but when I can definitely tell the difference between what my skin felt like before and after using it. This product is a must-have in my beauty bag & I think it should be a part of yours too!

Now moving onto my goals for this month!

  • Boost social media pages
  • Spend more time with the people who mean the most to me
  • Get better at creating content ahead of time
  • Start the Podcast!
  • Begin holiday shopping
  • Possibly re-brand the blog??
  • Start living a healthier lifestyle

So that is everything for my latest obsessions series! I hope you all enjoyed reading & please feel free to share this blog around with your friends & family! I am working on getting the word out about my blog & I would love it if you all could share my site around. I hope you all have an awesome  rest of your week &  I’ll be sure to talk again soon!
