Our Trip to Copenhagen // 10 Days in Copenhagen

It hasn’t even been a week since we got home from 10 days in Copenhagen and I miss it already. Visiting Scandinavia was a bucket list item for Chris and I and it was a dream to finally go. We chose Copenhagen because when we looked at all the things we wanted to do in Scandinavia, Denmark had the most. I had also seen photos of Copenhagen and it looked beautiful so we decided to start there. I can confidently say after 10 days there, we choose the right city. Someday, Stockholm, Oslo, and Helsinki are cities I would like to visit.  We did so much during our trip to Copenhagen so I wanted to give you a little insight into what we did!

What I Packed // 10 Days in Denmark

what i packed for denmark

The big trip is upon us! We are looking ahead to 10 days in Denmark and I absolutely canNOT wait! We have been dreaming of this trip for years and I can’t believe we are finally taking it. We could certainly spend more time in Denmark and surrounding countries but limited vacation time kept us at 10 days and I don’t think I could last that long without Max anyway. The crappy weather in Columbus over the last week or so has prepared me for cooler temps in Denmark and I’m kind of looking forward to getting more use out of my autumn and winter pieces. If you want to see what I packed for 10 days in Denmark, see below.

Sephora VIB Sale Haul

sephora vib sale haul

I used to spend a lot of time wandering Sephora and even more money on their makeup. It’s lucky that I’m still VIB and I mainly only purchase items from Sephora now during the beloved VIB Sale. In the spring, you only get 15% so it’s not life changing but is something. My Sephora VIB sale haul includes mainly repurchases of items that I love and was running low on. I’ll save my splurges for the fall when VIBers can save 20%.   Continue reading “Sephora VIB Sale Haul”

Mother’s Day Gift Guide // 2017

mother's day gift guide

Happy May! I feel very refreshed and happy to leave April behind, even though it was beautiful towards the end of the month. I do enjoy spring but there’s something about May and warmer weather and Memorial Day that just makes me feel a kind of way (do you know what I mean?). This year, the month of May is even more exciting than usual as we are finally going to Denmark! I have been looking forward to this trip for months and cannot believe it’s finally here. Sadly, I will be missing Mother’s Day but I was a bit more proactive than usual this year and picked up my gift early so I can make sure my wonderful mother has it on her special day. For all you procrastinators out there, I have put together a little Mother’s Day Gift Guide.

Glossier Product Review // First Impressions

glossier product review

I’ve definitely fallen out of love with makeup a bit. I don’t know if it’s because I wear less than I used to or because I give myself less time to get ready in the mornings, but I find that I don’t buy as much makeup. I still watch quite a few beauty bloggers but I let my YouTube subscription box build up quite a bit because I watch fewer beauty videos. I was not immune, though, to the arrival of Glossier. Most of the YouTubers I watch live in the UK so Glossier hasn’t really been given a lot of attention in their videos but I still heard a lot about this American brand. I finally picked up a few products and decided to do a Glossier Product Review.

Spring Wish List // Current Picks

spring wish list

I’m still riding the high of the great weather we had this past weekend and week. I feel like a whole new person when the sun is out longer and the temperature is above 65. I feel like I’m truly awake. Spring isn’t my favorite season but I’m always so happy to see it when it arrives. Usually around this time I’m ready to skip ahead to summer but this year I have a trip planned for May, which is helping me slow down and enjoy the spring months. My spring wish list is screaming summer, though, and I just can’t help it. Continue reading “Spring Wish List // Current Picks”

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying // A Review

life-changing magic of tidying review

With the exception of my early childhood, I’ve always considered myself a tidy person. I’ve always enjoyed cleaning and organizing my room. I spent a lot of my time perusing Real Simple Magazine and watching HGTV shows where people go through all of their stuff and organize with fancy systems you could buy from The Container Store. One thing I have struggled with in the past, is controlling how much stuff I have. I can remember being a kid and having a TON of toys. After reading The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying, I know I’m not alone. Continue reading “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying // A Review”

Overalls & Stripes // OOTD

overalls & stripes ootd

What a beautiful weekend we had. As far as weekends go, this one was pretty damn near perfect. Chris was back from Seattle and the weather was amazing. We started Saturday morning with breakfast with friends at Starliner Diner and then Chris and I had a fun photo session at Homestead Park. When Chris and I were in the early stages of dating, we used to have photo dates at nearby parks all the time armed with our point-and-shoot cameras. We’ve come a long way since then. The weather Saturday ended up being pretty nice and we did some shopping at Easton before drinks and apps at World of Beer. I’m usually quite the homebody and I truly believe I am an old soul deep down inside, but I tried to get out of my comfort zone by picking up a pair of overalls (what decade is it again) and getting drinks with the post-dinner crowd. I broke out my overalls & stripes on Sunday for a family dinner and really dug the look. Continue reading “Overalls & Stripes // OOTD”

Planthropy Succulent Workshop

planthropy succulent workshop

Have I mentioned that I’m really into plants? I can’t get enough. I’ve been killing fewer and learning how to better care for different plants and slowly I’ve been keeping more alive (win!). I started my plant journey with succulents and even though I have to admit I’ve killed some, I’ve managed to keep many alive for an extended period of time, which makes them good in my book. I don’t remember when I first heard of Planthropy, but my friend Dana and I were finally able to pick a workshop and get tickets to the Bodacious & Bright! Succulent Workshop at Growl! in Clintonville.

Target Home Picks // Spring 2017

target home picks spring 2017

Another Monday is upon us and another month is over. I don’t think I’ll ever stop exclaiming my surprise that another month has flown by. I’m hoping April brings warmer weather because I am starting to feel a bit stir crazy. When I can come home from work and plop myself in the hammock in the backyard, I’ll  be a happy gal. I recently flipped (digitally, of course) through the Target Spring Home Style Catalog and loved everything in it. I’m not always impressed with Target’s quality, but sometimes, they really surprise me. I’ve decided to throw some of my favorites together (not all because literally I would just be posting the whole catalog) and I’m noticing a trend: neutrals.
