Phew, the heat wave finally broke! We're back down to our normal June temperatures of 70s and 80s. I'll take it! As much as I love those hot 90º days, I just wasn't totally ready for summer yet this year. I think it just snuck up on us a little too quickly! Plus, time has just been a whirlwind. We've been going nonstop lately, and I feel like it's just going to continue that way for the next few weeks. Thankfully tonight, I was able to cook a meal at home, catch up on some laundry, knock out a few chores, and publish a blog post!
Let's jump back a couple of weeks, shall we? It's been a whirlwind start to summer ever since Memorial Day weekend, that's for sure! If you didn't catch it on Instagram, Eric and I headed out to Ann Arbor over the long weekend to stay at Graduate Ann Arbor. The amazing folks there invited us to experience the hotel, grab a bite to eat at the Allen Rumsey Supper Club, and enjoy checking out the quaint downtown of Ann Arbor. We've been to Ann Arbor a couple of times before, but I've never stayed a full weekend, so it was great to have a bit more time to explore, walk around, check out some of the bars and restaurants, and do a little bit of shopping!

It's finally here... my everyday curls hair tutorial! I know I've been talking about doing this for a while, so I'm glad I finally took the time to put it together. In this post, you'll find all of the products I use on my hair, a quick 10-step recap of how I curl my hair, and a full five-minute video tutorial. You can shop all of the products in the image below by clicking the little + signs. I've also answered a few FAQs at the end of the post, but if you have any other questions, just leave a comment on this post and I'll be sure to respond! Hope you enjoy!Read More
We're already a full week into June… holy moly! I’m excited for this month, because summer is officially here. It’s not technically summer yet, but it sure does feel like it. We’re supposed to hit the 90s this weekend! This month is chocked full of plans that kick off summer festivities — lots of social gatherings (bachelorette parties, shows, etc.) and at the end of the month I have a full week off for the fourth of July. I haven’t had a week off since last June, so I’m really excited for that. While I’m hoping time slows down a little (I’m going to try to apply the brakes as much as I can), I still have a few goals I want to accomplish!Read More
Hi friends! Long time, no see! Way unintentional blog break there, but geez, life is zooming by. Since I saw you last (here at least), we went to Ann Arbor for Memorial Day weekend, rode 20 miles around Muskegon for the annual Pub Pedal (my legs are STILL sore!), went to an outdoor Eat/Shop/Rock event where Eric's band played, and I've been kicking butt at working at a small secret project. Kudos if you caught it on my Instastories! If not, I'll be sharing more soon. We've just been very busy, and I'm trying to prioritize, but it's definitely a challenge. I have a blog post coming up on our Ann Arbor trip, and I need to get my June small goals up, and I finally filmed a little video tonight with a hair tutorial, so I just need to get that edited and ready to go! Lots to do, and summer is here, which means life gets busy in the best way!Read More
One thing I’m looking forward to this summer… wedding season! We have two upcoming weddings this summer, and I’m really looking forward to both of them. One thing that’s been on my mind though (of course) is… what to wear? We have two very different upcoming styles — a beach wedding, and a barn wedding. I knew I wanted to find something cute, casual and fun for summer that’ll fit both occasions. I’m teamed up with Zappos and Adrianna Papell to show what I’d choose to wear as a wedding guest — this adorable cold shoulder floral dress with these woven canvas mules! Luckily, plenty of adorable wedding styles are available through Zappos.com… and if you’re a Zappos Rewards member, you’re eligible for free expedited shipping and free returns too.Read More
