5 Reasons to Exercise (that have nothing to do with losing weight)

Okay here we go! It’s almost Spring. That means we are approaching that time of year when everyone is stressing out over how to get a “bikini bod!” If you’re anything like me, you probably procrastinate on the dieting and the gym routine until you realize it’s already June and then think: “Honestly, what’s the point?” Why give up all those BBQ’s and margaritas when a month of working out ...

23 Lessons

Happy Saturday and Happy Birthday to me! For the last month I was trying to decide what to do for my birthday and my initial plan was to take a shot for every year I’ve been alive. But some people, like my mom for instance, didn’t think that was the greatest idea. So instead I did some reflecting and I thought about some of the important lessons I’ve learned in my lifetime. From traveling on my own, starting and ending ...

Mondays and Macarons

Happy Monday! I love beginnings. Beginning of the year, the month, and the week. I’m actually really relieved for January to be over… I spent the first three weeks of the month without a job and absolutely no routine. I was starting to go crazy. But now I’m back at it, working part time, getting back into working out, saving up for travel, and enjoying a routine. So I’m ready for February. It’s gonna be busy ...

Winter Hikes with Torch

The Pacific Northwest has a lot of great stuff to offer. It’s the home of Starbucks, Nike, Amazon, and, most importantly, the Columbia River Gorge. My favorite part of growing up here has been being right in between both the ocean and the mountains, giving me access to both. I also get to enjoy all four seasons here! Well… I enjoy only three of them… I’m honestly not a big fan of Winter. I love wearing sweaters and I ...

2017 Recap and 2018 Resolutions!

To be honest, I think New Year’s Resolutions are kind of silly because I make new resolutions about five times a week, sometimes going through with them and sometimes not. But I love the idea of challenging myself to make lifestyle choices that will make the next year better than the last! And recaps? Yeah, they’re cliché but I think they’re a great way to reflect and that’s how we come up with next year’s ...

Croissants and Stripes: Dreaming of Paris

Walking through twisting, cobblestone streets, sitting outside my favorite cafe in Montmarte, strolling though the gardens by the Louvre, sitting on benches next to the Seine to write in my journal, and sitting on the balcony of my Airbnb, right next to the Moulin Rouge, eating my breakfast and people watching. These are all the things I miss about Paris. Exploring a new city, visiting multiple times to find my favorite cafes and ...

Farewell to Fall

Happy Monday and Happy Holidays! It’s crazy how fast the Holidays are approaching and how I haven’t even done ANY Christmas shopping yet!!! I constantly have to remind myself not to let the stress of the Holidays get to me so that I can still enjoy this time of year. A great way to do this is by making the time to actually celebrate and enjoy the festivities. This is what Jordan and I did a couple weeks ago, if you recall in my ...

Christmas Crafts & Cocktails

Gingerbread houses, decorating the tree, making wreaths, parties with good food and cocktails, I believe they call this the most wonderful time of the year? I mean, cocktails are always wonderful but add a homemade wreath and it gets even better! This last week I teamed up with my friend, Jordan, of Honey Lavender, and we spent a wonderful afternoon foraging for wreath supplies and I made us some delicious cocktails to drink while we sat on ...

A Delicious Holiday Tradition

What’s the best part about the holidays? The food of course. Hearty soups, warm drinks, delicious baked goods, and, of course, Thanksgiving! But the baking is probably my favorite! Is there anything better than waking up early on a cold, November day to the smell of cinnamon rolls in the oven? When I think of the holidays I imagine sitting by the fire with a cup of coffee and a warm cinnamon roll. Preferably I’m wearing an ...

My Daily Commute with Sound Huggle

So here is a little fun fact about me: I grew up across the river from Portland, OR in Vancouver, WA. I always loved visiting Portland on the weekends though; the city life was way more exciting than the suburban life in my eyes. I loved the fast paced environment, as if everyone was on their own mission! Walking past the beautiful window displays of Nordstrom and Anthropologie, then taking a break in one of the many coffee shops, I decided ...
