Rust Satin Dress & I need your help!

Dress | Shoes here & here | Earrings | Glasses 

My personal goal for the blog is to share more with content with you, but I’d love hear your feedback on the type of content you’re looking for. I thought I’d share with you some personal thoughts about the blogging world and what I’m currently experiencing, and why I need your help!

When I started my blog, almost three years ago, my goal was to post three outfit posts a week, one recipe, and one home decor inspiration post. Sounds really balanced, right? Well, my blog has really been morphing into more fashion and less of everything else…and I think it’s because I keep hearing the words “Stay in your lane” and “do what’s working for you.” Ok but what does that mean?! I love that concept in terms of time management, and prioritization. Recently, I’ve been taking time I would have spent on my phone scrolling through random peoples Instagram accounts, and instead focussing on my own account. Maybe taking that time to style a flat lay, or get a picture ready to post the next day. I can’t tell you how much “staying in my lane” in this way has helped me. It has only benefited me and the blog.

I’m writing this today because I want to know from YOU what you want to see here in this space?! Are you happy with seeing 90% fashion, outfit posts? I’m personally feeling like I have even more to share like additional Paleo recipes, like this amazinggg sweet potato muffin recipe I shared in May, or these phenomenal healthy brownies I shared in February. I also am planning beauty video content which I hope you will love! But this blog isn’t all about me, lol I want to know what YOU want to see and how I can create content for you!

Please comment below and let me know what you’re thinking. I really appreciate you taking the time to read this and your feedback! Afterall, you guys are the people helping my live my dream of blogging, so your feedback and insights are MUCH appreciated!!

Hello lovely people! Happy Monday! I hope you guys had a great weekend! We got so much done this weekend it felt SO good! I also made two paleo recipes last night that I had never made before and they were both delicious! I made Nom Nom Paleo’s Asian meatball recipe, and Paleomg’s Asian Broccoli Salad recipe! I’ve been pinning a bunch of recipes so make sure to follow me on Pinterest HERE! 

Today’s look is such a simple easy to wear summer look. These shorts have become a staple this Summer and are really comfortable, easy to pack, and more than anything, these shorts are really fun with the distressed look that’s REALLY trending right now! Also, I absolutely love these sandals and my only regret is that I didn’t buy them sooner this summer! I’ve found that they really do go with everything! I bought the color “Natural Leather” but I could see the silver metallic option being really fun, too!

It’s going to be a busy week for me with a trip at the end of the week to celebrate my Sister’s Birthday and one of my longest childhood friends is getting married on Saturday! I hope you have a great day and be sure to follow me on Instagram HERE!

Happy Saturday! I just wanted to share with you guys what currently in my shopping cart! I think I’m like all of you in the US who are wanting to buy fall staples but are living in hotter temps! I’m seeing so many adorable slouchy, cozy sweaters that I can’t wait to pair with jeans and booties, but when it’s 80 degrees right now, those colder weather months feel like a long way off! But, it is crazy to think that September is seriously sneaking up on us, and pretty soon I’m going to be wanting to bake everything pumpkin, going to the pumpkin patch taking pictures, etc, etc! I was looking through my phone pics yesterday trying to delete some photos and make more room on my phone and I cannot believe how we are closer to this Christmas than last. Insane!!!

Anyway, I wanted to share with you that I have started a weekly newsletter on my blog! I’m super excited about this, and it’s been a long time coming!
