If you guys remember back in this post, building up my savings was one of the goals I gave myself for 2019. I’m not a saver. Never have been. Generally I have good intentions, but it’s usually an afterthought and shoes and food take precedence when I had some leftover pennies to spare. But as I get older, it’s become more and more important to me to have a little nest egg for emergencies, travel, or a rainy day. After doing a little research, I realized that there are some AWESOME apps out there to help me achieve my savings goals and to do it easily. So, without further adieu, here are 5 of my favorite money saving and finance apps that I’ve discovered and have helped me to save without even giving it a second thought!
This post (and the news) have been in the works for a little bit now. I wanted to wait until things were officially official before sharing all of the details, but, it’s definitely time to let the cat out of the bag….I’m moving! ACROSS THE COUNTRY!!! (It feels soooo good to finally say that after holding in my little secret for so long!) After 24 years in Salt Lake City, Utah, I’m packing up everything and making the 2,031 mile drive to plant some new roots in Charlotte, North Carolina at the beginning of October.
As much as I love to go out on the town, there’s just something amazing about spending a night in. As I get older, I’m really embracing doing fun things at home with my girlfriends, instead of going out. Today, I’m sharing my very favorite girl’s night in idea…and it involves wine AND cake. What’s not to love about that? [Read more…]
May is officially here, but I’m a little behind schedule with my monthly favorites, due to a weekend girl’s trip to Moab. (You can see the highlights over on Insta!) But I wasn’t about to miss sharing my new obsessions with you guys and all of the things that I’ve been hooked on for the last month! I’m covering skincare, footwear, and wine….what’s not to love?!
Not sure about you guys, but lately my skin has been feeling a little less than perfect. The winter season has left it dry and dull and I’m on a mission to get it summer ready! One of my favorite ways to do that is by using this DIY brightening face mask! It’s soooo easy to make and really helps get my skin out of that post-winter rut! Plus, I love using all natural ingredients!
Check out the super simple tutorial and make your own mask this weekend!
February is almost over (Yay, March, my birthday month!), but I couldn’t let it slip by without letting you guys in on my newest obsessions and the things I’ve been hooked on this month! My picks include the tweets that are getting me through my work day, the best gloss I’ve ever owned, and the newest addition to my bedroom that’s a game changer, plus a few others!
This year, I decided to add a new series to the blog called “Hooked”, a monthly post where I round-up everything that I’m currently obsessing over and what’s got me hooked this month! I’ll be featuring a little bit of everything and hope that it’s a fun way to introduce you guys to something new. And who knows…you might just get hooked too!
Despite the snow and freezing temperatures that this month brings, I do love the month of January. The idea of a fresh start is inspiring and despite how great or terrible the last year went, there’s an underlying feeling of starting over with a clean slate and leaving bad habits or mistakes in the past. Some people don’t like the pressure of starting a new year with resolutions or goals, but I’m a big believer in writing them down so that they really resonate with me. For me, another year is another opportunity to keep growing in a positive way. And my 2019 goals will hopefully reflect that this year! So with that, I’m diving into today’s post which is all about my 2019 goals. Some are personal, some are professional, and some are just fun!
