As my blog name implies, I am quite literally a millennial that’s always on the move. Day in and day out I’m balancing my full-time job, maintaining a blog, doing chores around the house and spending time with my husband as well as my family and friends. It seems like life doesn’t ever slow down for me, but that’s the way I like it. I love having things to look forward to and I love the challenge of staying organized and on top of everything. Guess I have my type A personality to thank for that!Read More
When I think of summer, I think of my favorite things – spending time with family and friends, being outside and making my favorite summertime recipes!
I love eating fruit during the summer months because it’s so refreshing! Whether it’s fresh fruit from the farmer’s market or fruit that’s chopped up and put into a fruit salad, if it’s put in front of me, I’ll eat it!
I especially love grape salad! My grandma used to make this recipe all the time when I was younger! The first time I tried it, I was hooked. The recipe is super easy and it doesn’t require a lot of ingredients. In fact, you could make this recipe in a matter of minutes.Read More
Do you dream of working from home? Plenty of people do. What some people don't know is that you can work remotely AND still make a hefty salary. That sounds like a win-win, doesn't it?!
From 2005 to 2015, there has been a 115% percent increase in telecommuting. I would have never guessed that! With the growth of telecommuting and working remotely, stats have been uncovered around the average telecommuter. Here are some interesting tidbits that you might not know: the average telecommuter is 46 years or older, has at least a bachelor’s degree, and earns a higher median salary than an in-office worker. If that doesn't build an appealing case toward having a goal to work remotely, I don't know what does!Read More
It's hard to believe that we're halfway through 2017 already! I really can't believe that July is next week. Seems like I was watching the ball drop on New Years Eve 2016 just yesterday!
July is a busy month for me - I have a lot going on between holidays, plans with friends and fun celebrations. Click to read and see what I'm most looking forward to this month!Read More
There are a handful of places in the world that I just can't stay away from. One of those places is Lake Tahoe. Shortly after my parents got married, they lived in Reno. They went to Lake Tahoe fairly often to partake in outdoor activities like hiking, sailing and skiing. As my sister and I grew up, we had the chance to visit Lake Tahoe numerous times with our parents in both the winter and summer seasons. It has become a really special place for my family and we visit over and over.
Back when my husband and I first started dating, I would tell him about all of the cool places I've been lucky enough to travel to. I would always talk to him about Lake Tahoe and I would tell him how I would love to take him there one day. That conversation turned into reality because we visited Lake Tahoe over Memorial Day weekend and during the week last week!Read More
Traveling during any season is great, but there's something about traveling in the summer that makes going to a new place and experiencing new things extra exciting. For one, many people take time off during the summer since it's a prime time to use vacation days and spend time with family or friends. With the warmer weather during the summer months, there are more opportunities to be outdoors and do various activities like biking, walking around in a new city or even eating on the patio of a new restaurant.
I myself have lots of plans to travel this summer and I can't wait! In case you missed it, I touched on my 2017 travel plans in a post a few weeks back. If there is one thing that I am extra stern on when I travel, it's safety. I am always aware of my surroundings and I'm always watching what other people are doing. I think it's very unfortunate that people prey on tourists, but in today's world it's not uncommon to hear about things that go wrong when people travel.Read More
Like most girls, I first learned about makeup from my mom. I remember looking through her drawer in the bathroom that housed all of her beauty products and wondering what each one was for. As I got older, I became more and more curious about the products she was using and why she used them.
My mom worked full-time as I grew up and when it came to makeup, she always preferred a simple look. Eye shadow, a coat of mascara and some lipstick was all she ever needed and she pulled it off so well (and still does).
In today's post, I wanted to share three beauty products that I started using as a result of raiding my mom's makeup drawer.Read More
They say that when one door closes, another one opens. When it comes to your career, you might close the door yourself in pursuit of a new opportunity. Job hunting is quite the process and the feeling of accepting a job offer for a new position can be bittersweet. On one hand it’s exciting to move on to a new role and begin a new chapter of your life, but on the other hand leaving behind coworkers and a role that you’ve become accustomed to is sad and a bit scary.Read More
