Wow! It’s been a while – Update

Hey everyone!

I can’t believe how long it’s been since my last post. I’m currently finishing up my semester break from school and starting back up in a couple weeks, full time. I was so pleased to learn that I made president’s honors last semester (woooot woot! Hello 4.0)  I’m so pumped for this next semester to start as it’s one step closer to my career goal!

I recently started Tone It Up’s new challenge, #lookforlove for six weeks. It’s so much fun but let’s be honest…after quite the break and the holidays, it gets pretty difficult to get up extra early to complete 5 daily moves in 42 reps and 28 minutes of HIIT. Tomorrow morning my plan is to set my alarm, away from my bed (so I actually have to get up and turn it off). I don’t know about you, but when I’m up, I’m up…there’s no going back to sleep. I will keep you all posted through my journey.

Also, I recently got engaged to my best friend while vacationing in St. Thomas, for our two year anniversary. It was so beautiful and the way he did it was the best…he popped the question IN THE OCEAN (swoon!). He even managed to set up the camera on video (in a tree) to catch every moment 🙂 🙂 followed by a day in the BVI with our friends, jumping off the top of a ship, snorkeling and walking through the beautiful Baths of Virgin Gorda, BVI. This was definitely a vacation I could never forget.



Hope you all enjoy your Tuesday and #lookforlove. Happy New Year 🙂



Tuesday Pick-Me-Up

Is it only Tuesday?!😳

In serious need of my PerfectFit Awaken tea. You know one of those days you can’t get out of your own way? That’s me today. Could be the result of a Bachelorette hangover, from staying up so late to see the final rose ceremony and of course the after show, mixed with tying up all the loose ends before my classes start at the end of the month. Needless to say it is only Tuesday afternoon and I’m wishing it was Friday already 🙂


The PerfectFit Awaken tea is the perfect pick-me-up! Green tea with a blend of tropical breeze…reminding me that in exactly 3 months I will be laying on the beach in the Caribbean feeling that tropical breeze firsthand.

Is there anyone else suffering a Bachelorette hangover today?! Any thoughts on the outcome??🌹

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your Tuesday!




What’s in the Bag of the “Plus 1” – Wedding Weekend

Hey!! I hope you all had a great 4th of July!

So it’s been some time since my last post – You know summer…it gets crazy with beach trips, weddings, bridal/baby showers and the list goes on 🙂

This past weekend we celebrated the love of a beautiful couple at one of the most gorgeous venues, The Lyman Estate Mansion also known as The Vale, a historic country house located in Waltham, MA on 37 acres of pure beauty.


Call me a “swooner” but there’s just something about an old Victorian mansion! The wedding was absolutely perfect filled with amazing people, music, food, the best tasting wines and of course, so much love.

Thursday night we had the rehearsal dinner, which was casual but somewhat dressy. I always over pack whenever I go somewhere, mainly because I change my mind way too often when it comes to clothes 🙂 There’s nothing wrong with having tons of options….right??? Who wants to be thousands of miles away and wishing you would have packed something?! 🙂 This was the perfect opportunity to wear my new stitch fix blouse with some gray skinnies dressed up with some heels.  IMG_7341

Friday night…wedding time! My boyfriend was in the wedding party and planned to be gone most of the day so I decided to hang around the hotel, hit up the gym and do some yoga before the wedding. Packing some yoga pants, comfy shorts, sports bra and some sneakers was a must!



Having trouble deciding what to wear to the wedding?? You can’t go wrong with the little black dress, heels and a bright necklace! Don’t forget pair of flip flops or flats to dance the night away with. Let loose and have some wine! Cheers

So thankful for this guy! Wouldn’t have wanted to share this fun with anyone else. So glad I got to be his “plus 1” 🙂
