I have a little confession - accessories are my weakness.  Shocking, I know. There’s just something about a great handbag or a pair of shoes that speak to me.  Unfortunately for my wallet (and husband’s sanity) accessories can get expensive rather quickly, so in order to make certain pricier pieces work within our budget I’ve learned to mix higher quality items with budget buys.  The best part of mixing high and low is that if you pick your budget items well, no one will be able to tell exactly how much you spent (or saved!) on that piece.

Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides Review

When it comes to supplements I'm probably the worst when it comes to consistency.  I end up doing a ton of research on something, get super excited to work it into my routine and a few weeks later I forget to take it for a few days and it makes its way onto the list of supplements I just didn't stick with.  If I'm being completely honest I thought collagen peptides would be the same way which is why it took me so long to bite the bullet and spend the money, but after 6 months it's become a part of my daily routine and I've since repurchased multiple times.

My style is not necessarily what I would consider boho but when it comes to jewelry I find myself drawn to a more natural look with pieces that are made with leather and beads.  Now don't get me wrong, I do love diamonds and shiny things just as much as the next girl, but there's something to be said about pieces that can be dressed up or down for everyday wear.

It's been a while - nearly two month have passed since I published my last blog post and even before that things were a little sparse around here.  I wish I could give you some amazing reason why it's been that way, but if I'm being totally honest life just got really busy and my heart just wasn't into creating content.  I told myself at some point last year that I didn't want to write if it wasn't something I felt strongly about or truly enjoyed creating and that's when I realized that I needed to step back for a bit and focus on some other things in my life.
