    It’s that time of the season! I’ve got a 2019 summer playlist all cued up for you.

Some of my favorite songs on this playlist are War Paint by Fletcher, Love Somebody by Taylor Henderson, and Never Really Over by Katy Perry.   Happy listening, Kimberly

    10 Reading Habits You Shouldn’t Be Ashamed Of

    I believe everyone appreciates books in a different way. I also believe we can all enjoy books in a variety of ways, and that’s okay. There is no one right way to read a book. There is no one right type of book to read. And there is no one in this world that should make you feel guilty about what or how you like to read. Let’s get started with the 10 reading habits you shouldn’t be ashamed of. 1. Reading more than one book at a time. I used to have a friend that would shame me for reading more than one book at a time. It’s something…

    Top 5 Newsletters To Get In Your Inbox

    There’s nothing I love more than reading a good article, and then, sharing it. I probably read more articles online than the average person, but it’s how I take mental breaks rather than surfing social media. I’m not fantastic at finding articles on my own unless they are from my favorite bloggers and websites. Instead of scouring the Internet for hours finding the perfect think-piece, I rely on a few newsletters to enlighten me. Here are my top 5 newsletters to get in your inbox today. Let’s get started! 1. 5 Smart Reads This is one of my favorite additions to my inbox by far. Hitha Palepu is mostly known for her book How…

    Summer Bucket List

    Summer is in full swing in Nashville. I’ve spent a few days at the pool and enough days in the sun to feel that summer has sunk in, and this one is going to be a hot one. This summer is entirely different from last summer for me, so I’m ready to make the most of it. Maybe it’s because I’m from Florida, and I was basically raised in a perpetual summer, but I don’t hate this season as much as other people. I look forward to the sweaty days and reading in the park, the long summer nights and the early summer mornings. There’s something in the air during the summertime,…

    Why I Got A Tattoo

    Surprise! I got a tattoo! About three weeks ago, on May 4th, I decided to scar my body for the rest of my life, and it’s the best decision I ever made. As most of you know, my grandmother passed away earlier this year. It was expected, but it was still hard. To make it harder, my family never got the chance to celebrate her amazing life. So, I made a choice to honor her in my own way — by getting a tattoo. Truthfully, I try to honor her life every day by living it how she would have liked me to. I say yes to far more opportunities,…

    Top 5 Podcasts to Listen To

    Podcasts have been having their moment in the sun for a few years now, but I’m still just as obsessed with them as I was a few years ago. I love having noise around me at all times (Silence can be scary, okay?), so whether I’m doing my makeup or cleaning my bathroom, I like to have a podcast playing. I have different podcasts for different occasions — news is strictly for my morning routine, murder podcasts are on full blast when I’m working out, and brain food podcasts are for when I’m doing work that doesn’t require a lot of attention. I listen to a wide range of radio…

    Spring 2019 Playlist

    I know Spring is technically almost over, but I still wanted to share the playlist I’ve curated over the last few months. You know the drill by now, but in case you don’t, I like to include new music for the season, music I’ve just discovered, and music I may have listened to during the last few months (musicals I’ve attended, concerts I went to, or particularly memorable music from a night out). Without further ado, here’s my spring 2019 playlist. Happy listening, Kimberly

    10 Ways to Treat Yourself on Valentine’s Day

    It’s the season of love! Traditionally, I’ve never really enjoyed Valentine’s Day, but I’m trying to embrace it a little more this year. Single, in a relationship, it’s complicated? Who cares. I say, treat yourself. I embrace this mantra more than my bank account probably likes, but life is short and money won’t follow you into the afterlife. (But for real, I’m very financially responsible, I promise. I budget.) I feel like Valentine’s Day gets a lot of hate — it’s a made up holiday, we should show love every day, blah blah blah. No matter how much people complain about it, it’s not going away. So, I’ve decided to…

    30 Days of Yoga

    I want to be able to hold a handstand by the end of 2019, and what better way to tackle that goal than to do yoga every day? I didn’t start out January with a plan to do 30 days of yoga, but sometimes these things just happen. Yoga with Adriene does a 30 day yoga challenge every year, and when I went to do my first yoga session of 2019, I decided to try to do the 30 days just for fun. In the interest of full disclosure, I did miss a few days because of travel, so I finished the 30 day challenge in about 35 days, which is…

    February Bullet Journal Set-Up

    I started bullet journaling last year, and I truly have never looked back. It’s the best thing I ever did for myself. I know it’s not for everyone, but I think my favorite thing about bullet journaling is that you can make it completely your own thing. You can go as big or as little as you want. I always include certain spreads including a goals page as well as a wrap-up/reflection page at the end of the month, but I like how I can switch it up to be whatever I’m needing this month. Here’s what my February bullet journal set up looks like this year. Let’s get started!…
