My Favorite Tennis Shoes

Happy Spring everyone! Warm weather is finally getting closer! It feels like this winter lasted forever and was much colder than usual.

I was at Gordman’s over spring break and picked up these blush Puma tennis shoes for $13! I hardly ever wear tennis shoes. I probably don’t wear them a few times a year but I’ve already worn these 4 times in the past week! What drew me to them was (obviously) the blush color and the ribbon shoe laces!

Thrifted Plaid Skirt for Winter

Last Saturday was the first Saturday of the month which meant everything was 50% off at Goodwill. I decided to stop by since it’s so conveniently right next to Aldi and I needed groceries 😉

I ended up picking up this adorable plaid vintage skirt. I adore the silhouette, high waist and flowy. It is forest green, navy & yellow plaid. I’m not sure if it’s wool because there is no tag but it washed up just fine!

Current Favorites

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted a monthly roundup so I thought I’d post some of my current favorites finds. These are ranging from clothing pieces to beauty items.

I picked up a pair of jeans very similar to these from Target’s clearance rack a month or so ago. They aren’t quite this light of a wash & are longer in length on me, although that could be because I’m 5’1″ haha. I got them for around $7 so always be sure to check Target’s clearance section!

Modest Swimsuit Guide 2019

I’m back with this year’s modest swimsuit guide! I feel like each year gets more difficult than the previous one. This year’s “trend” is the cheeky & high cut bottoms that are clearly not modest & don’t cover much at all. Who else gets frustrated by this like I do? But, I have noticed that some of these suits have modest tops- so if you love the suit but not the cheeky bottom, try wearing boy shorts or high-wasted bottoms over the top that match the rest of the suit!

I have searched online for the most affordable & adorable modest swimsuits. Personally, I prefer looking in stores. That way I can try them on & there seems to be more options I think. Walmart & Target especially have more options in stores versus online. Several of my swimsuits have came from Walmart & they are my favorites & are most affordable.

The Best Moisturizer for Winter Weather

I’ve been using Dermae products for the past year when my roommate told me about them. This is the best moisturizer I have ever tried! And no, this post is not sponsored- I just had to share it with you all! I first tried their hydrating night cream, as recommended again by my roommate. I was hesitant to try it solely due to the price. But when I found it on sale for half off, I knew then was my chance.

Someone’s Story

Cultivating Empathy

I feel like I should preface this post by saying: it’s a pretty deep topic, but something I feel deserves and needs to be addressed.

I’m sure a lot of us have heard the saying, “you don’t know what that person is going through.” But have you really thought about it? Do you actively try to think about it in your day-to-day life? As you’re interacting with people. As you’re scrolling social media. There’s really a lot of depth to that one sentence.

Easy To Make Crock Pot Soup

If you’re from the midwest you know how awfully cold the weather has been lately. Purdue even cancelled classes for 1 day (that has only happened 12 times since 1977!)! Well since I was home all day, I decided to make a soup in the crock pot.

Living Itty Bitty

I’ve been meaning to publish this post for years. Yes, years. But I couldn’t get the post just right. I hope by me sharing this it’s able to help other girls and provide insight. 

I’ve been considered “underweight” and “failure to thrive” all of my life. I was born small (around 4 pounds), I’ve always been small, and I’m fairly certain I always will be. (Learn more about why here: My Gluten Free Story)

I’ve dealt with phrases like: you’re so skinny/tiny, you need some meat on your bones, no wonder you’re cold-look at how thin you are, you just need to eat a hamburger….phrases like those I hear all the time. People even say “I wish I had your problem.” No, you don’t. I’ve had GI issues basically my whole life and I’m fairly certain my being underweight is related to undiagnosed Celiac Disease for so long along with other issues that we’re still trying to figure out 10 years later. It’s just as difficult trying to gain weight as it is trying to loose it. It’s just as frustrating. It seems like no matter what I eat, I just don’t gain anything. I always have a good appetite. My weight just stays consistent.
