my 2019 anti-resolutions + intentions.

hi, babes! first post of 2019 comin at ya!

last year i boycotted new year’s resolutions and came up with a list of intentions instead. things that i would intentionally put effort towards all year so that they slowly just became a habit/lifestyle change. nothing crazy and life altering..just manageable little changes like being intentional about what i put in my body, shifting my mindset in the gym from aesthetic to function, and prioritizing my relationship with the Lord. and i can pretty much say i’m still upholding those intentions.

BRONZED – a last minute new years eve look.

hello, babes! how was your christmas? i hope y’all had a wonderful time with loved ones, exchanging gifts and remembering the true reason for the season, the birth of our saviour. i was so excited my family got home just in time for the christmas eve candlelight service at church (they were visiting family in oklahoma while i stayed home to work), and we got to spend christmas day together at home.

leopard is the new black.

happy friday, babes! is anyone else jumping on this leopard bandwagon with me? i’ve literally been so obsessed with anything and everything leopard recently. it’s so tempting to buy every cute leo print sweater or scarf or bootie i come by. i shared this look over on insta a few weeks back (also wore this sweater for thanksgiving!) and y’all went crazy over this sweater, so i thought i’d share a little more in depth!

i had been wanting a leo sweater for a while, but you know me, i’m picky. i didn’t want one that screamed LEOPARD or that was brighter or super brown. leopard incognito, if you will. LOL well, i saw this one and purchased it immediately. like total impulse purchase. i mean it’s under $25…wouldn’t you have too?

i’ll be honest with you, babe, this sweater was a tad itchy when i first got it. you get what you pay for? needless to say, i was a little let down, but i threw a shirt on underneath and powered through because it’s just so darn cute! i also washed and dried it (according to care instructions, no worries!) and that did help a bit.

when i say leopard is the new black, i mean it! it goes with EVERYTHING. black, brown, red, yellow, blue, stripes, floral, ANYTHING. #mindblowing give it a try!

enjoy your weekend, babe!! xo
