4 Reasons You’re Always Late

I’m an OCD early bird. I just am. I think it’s because I grew up with a (wonderful) mom who was always late. She’d swear she would pick me up from school at 3 o’clock but the next thing I knew it was four and I was still waiting outside. Being late drives me insane. I actually start to get anxiety and stressed if I’m running behind schedule! As I’ve gotten older I’ve realized the plague that is lateness doesn’t just afflict my mom – not everyone operates on the same schedule. Some of us love to arrive a half […]

A Day at Disney

I am 24 years old and I’m still totally obsessed with Disney. Judge all you want but I’m like 99% sure that most of you have exactly the same feels. I mean when I hit play on a Disney movie and see Tinkerbell fly over the arch of the castle I just about lose my mind. Being totally jealous of Cinderella’s high heels? Been there, bippity boppity done that. Crushed hard on Li Shang in Mulan? Zero shame. Okay, maybe a little shame. But not much. My mom and I had already settled on spending a very entrepreneurial Mother’s Day […]

Create & Cultivate DTLA

If any of you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat (blondebagel) you know that I spent last week prancing around Los Angeles with my amazing mother for a long Mother’s Day weekend! We hit up Disneyland, the new Harry Potter section of Universal Studios, and so much more – but the real reason we travelled south was to attend Create & Cultivate in downtown LA. Create & Cultivate is a conference for female entrepreneurs and influencers. When I saw all over Instagram and social media the fun some of my favorite bloggers had at the last conference in Dallas I […]

4 Simple Steps to Ease Anxiety

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. As always, I’d never write about something I don’t love! All opinions are mine alone. #BioreCharcoal #CollectiveBias If there’s one thing I’m not known for, it’s being calm. I feel like I’m always going a mile a minute, my wheels are always spinning, and I’ve always got a huge checklist of things I need to get done. The benefit of this is being a lean, mean, working machine! But the downside is huge – I’m no stranger to anxiety. I can’t claim to be an expert, but as I’ve […]

Packing More Than a Weekend in a Weekender

I am a chronic over packer. Who’s with me? I’ve started to notice that I pack to my container, meaning that if I allow myself a large suitcase I find a way to fill it. I’ve always admired the women that can pack their life away in a chic carry on, so I’ve decided to give it a shot! I’m headed down to LA for an extra long weekend with my mom and she gifted me this gorgeous Vera Bradley weekender (PS it’s on sale!) that I’ve been dying to use. I’m using these tips and tricks below to fit more than […]
