You go to a farmhouse. It’s a beautiful house. You go up the driveway that turns into a stoney path. To your right is a barn with a garage underneath.

My Top 5 Favorite Songs at the Moment

I absolutely love discovering new music and listening to new artists. When I find a song I like, I tend to replay it over and over for the next couple of months.

The Underrated Rewards of Travel

I’m what some might call a World Traveler. I wouldn’t call myself that, but only because it sounds a bit too grandiose for my tastes. Still, the nickname might be warranted. I’ve traveled to fifteen different countries in the last five years. Though that’s mostly thanks to school-sponsored programs and dumb luck. Whatever the reason, I’m privileged to have visited the far reaches of the globe. I’ve spent summers gallivanting across Europe and winters reclining in the Caribbean. I’ve had trips to Central America in the fall and East Asia in the spring. The Often Overrated Rewards of Travel First,…

Why I Love Watching Simon Sinek and Why You Should Too

Before I start discussing why I love Simon Sinek, I should first explain who is he, what he does and how I came across him in the first place. A few months ago, I was in some serious need of motivation. I was really struggling to stay motivated with my blog. I felt like I was failing and I was wondering what the point was of putting so much time into my blog when nothing was working. I was in a big mess and I decided to try and find some motivation on YouTube by randomly typing in “motivational talks”.…

5 Books I Will Always Read Even In Adulthood

Reading has always been a huge passion of mine. As soon as the smooth cover of a book is in my hands, I get whisked away into whatever world is unfolding within the pages before me. Getting lost in a book was also my way of coping with the traumatic childhood I was living. There are many series that I became engrossed with during this turbulent time in my life. They were my escape--each character became a friend and each story became my own. Percy Jackson Another amazing series of Good vs. Evil. Percy Jackson, the main character was very…

How Reese Witherspoon Got Me Through My Twenties

We all have our favorite films. You know, the films that we watch over and over and still manage not to get bored with? This is just human nature to find comfort in the familiar. For me, the films that I watch over and over tend to be inspiring in some way. They are the films with underdogs that by the end of the film have accomplished something difficult. In particular, I love Reese Witherspoon films! She’s pretty enough to be believable as a bombshell, but not so pretty that she makes you feel insecure. Her face is like a…

My 3 Dream Collaborations That Would Turn Music Upside Down

In the world of music, artists and creators are constantly collaborating. Somewhere a producer is tucked away in a studio engineering the beats that will be become the backbone of a rapper’s album.

A singer and a songwriter huddle together working on finalizing the chorus of a song that will one day become a smash hit. These small acts of teamwork happen every day. Collaboration has become common place at almost every level of the creative process. Some of the biggest names in music have…

My Favorite Things About February (Food, Makeup, and More)

Hey guys!! I hope your February has been filled with more love and laughter and less chaos than January. The first month of the year is always tough because the New Year can often bring new things. But I feel like February is when things start to even out and, man oh man, am I glad that things are starting to even out! My January was an absolute wreck in big areas of my life, so this month I’ve tried to focus on the little things because those are usually the only things you have any control over. There were…

What I Listened to This Winter

Hey guys! It’s me again and I’m back with another seasonal playlist. Unfortunately, this season has been a really stressful one for me, but luckily I’ve had some fire music to push me through (which you’ll soon find out for yourself!). While I would love to take complete credit for this list of music, I can’t. My boyfriend, Hunter, helped me. Hunter and I are constantly cruising around a nearby lake and listening to great new music (when we’re not working) so this list is pretty lengthy. If you’ll just hang in there I think you’ll be really glad you…
