Journals & Things…


At the beginning of every new year, I buy a new journal and a new calendar. So last week my Mom (hey Wanda!) and I went to Barnes and Noble and found some calendars for 50% off. So I grabbed the turquoise one pictured above, which has both the monthly and daily calendars in it. I don’t like my personal calendar to be too big or too small, so I thought this one was a nice balance. Can’t beat that for $7.50!

Luckily, a few of my girlfriends bought me journals for my birthday last year so I didn’t have to go out and buy any. I’m glad that I’ve finally finished writing in my peacock journal (finished on Saturday), and I am trying to decide between these other two journals. Both have messages that resonate with me and are quite symbolic considering that it is a new year and I am embarking upon a new journey. A new beginning in addition to believing that any and everything is possible are both messages that I plan to take with me throughout the year…


This particular journal is super cute because it has the most adorable messages throughout. Every couple of pages has a cute little quote…While I love fashion, my first love is writing. Journaling has really helped me to not only record my growth as an individual but it has also helped me to express my emotions in a positive way.


Okay, so which journal do you guys think I should start writing in first? Do you keep a journal?

I hope you all enjoyed this post…xoxo

Aug/Sept Favs

Hey Ladies!! I normally do a beauty favorites haul each month, but I think I am going to try something a little different today. This ‘favorites’ post will include all of my favorite things at the moment.

From left to right: My journal, My Juicy Blog Notebook, and My New iPad

I write in my journal every single night….many writers tell you that to be a writer you MUST write daily!! I purchased this notebook on Amazon and I soooo adore it!! It has so many quotes about love and desire it…a must have!

As for the Juicy Couture Notebook, I purchased it last summer at Nordstrom. It actually came in a set of 3…I haven’t used the other two as of yet. Just the pop of color and the gold letters make me happy! I love writing down my blog ideas and various sites that I want to remember in it!

As for the iPad, what can I say…Apple got me again!! It is an amazing device and I’ve been contemplating purchasing it for quite some time. I carry it with me every day as it is much easier than trying to carry a laptop. I’ve added all the blogs I follow to my home screen so that they are easily accessible to me. If you don’t have one, you must get one ASAP!

I’ve also been doing a lot of running and my Nikes have become my greatest companion! These running shoes are the best! I purchased them for about $60 at Sport’s Authority. Also, if you haven’t tried the Nike Drifit clothing, you are not in the know! They are so amazing and soooo comfortable! I love the tights/capris because they have the pocket on the butt so that you can put your keys and iPod in it…Hand free running is a must!

These are one of my favorite pairs of earrings and I have been rocking them all month! They are super big so I can’t always wear them to work, but anytime I have the opportunity to rock them, I do! I purchased these babies a year or two ago at 4NXChange, a boutique in Washington, DC.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post!! Smooches! XOXO
