Happy almost Memorial Day weekend! This is one of my favorite weekends because I get to celebrate my blog anniversary, my birthday, and all of the men and women who lost their lives fighting for our country!
The reason blogging is so cool is because not only is it a way to share your thoughts and inspire people all over the world but it teaches you a lot about yourself along the way. Here are the top 5 things that I’ve learned over the past two years of blogging:
1. You have to work on getting to know yourself
Just because you are yourself doesn’t mean you know yourself. I lived 20 years of my life without “fully” knowing who I was. I had to decide one day that I wanted to spend time getting to know myself. What I mean by this is that I started interpreting how I responded in certain situations, took personality tests, figured out what truly made me happy, figured out what made me different from everyone else around me.
Believe it or not, this is my very first bodysuit. I absolutely love the idea of bodysuits but had yet to find one I really loved. The second I saw this on Zara’s website, I knew I needed to have it.
I love that it’s black (my favorite color), but that it is still appropriate for spring and summer. It has a beautiful embroidery detail to it, which gives it uniqueness.
In order to dress it down a little bit and make it more casual, I decided to pair it with my fringe mom jeans. These mom jeans also are pretty bohemian with the fringe bottoms, so the overall theme stayed consistent. Since I was in Hilton Head for this outfit, I paired it with a sun hat and some rounded sunnies to give it that resort look.
If I were going out for the night, I would pair it with skinny jeans and a heel.

One of my favorite trends for Spring and Summer is a white out. A white is extremely fresh and seems to be the best way to embrace the warm weather. I decided to wear a two-piece outfit for my first white out.
For the past couple of years, I have always worked out with my standard plug in headphones. I would either have to bring an armband or try to tuck my phone in my waistband to prevent the wire from getting in the way. A couple of times the wire has actually gotten caught and flung my phone off the treadmill. At that moment, I realized it was time for me to get wireless headphones.
Let me tell you, it has been an absolute game changer. I went with the EFITZ headphones from spectorwireless.com. These headphones are specifically for athletes and give you 10 hours of battery life! I can go an entire workout week without having to charge them.
