Fresh Shrimp Rolls

The other night, the idea of turning on my oven or stove to make dinner was unbearable. It's been far too hot to consider heating up my apartment further.

So when it came time for dinner, I decided the best thing to do was keep it cool, fresh and light.

Enter: Fresh Shrimp Rolls.

My Home Is Really Messy Today (and that's okay!)

I pride myself on being an organized person.

Overwhelming mess makes me cringe, I tend to have a plan for EVERYTHING, and I will admit to being a bit of a micro manager (I'm working on it!)

I'm good at throwing things out, I actually like to vacuum and I believe in making my bed every day.

But boy oh boy can our home get messy!

How To Toss Out Your Clothes!

A person's closet is a funny place.

It can be the source of great fun and filled with fond memories, it can be a source of frustration, or it can be an overwhelming mess with the door better kept CLOSED.

We live our lives in our clothes, and we house them in a place that is often cramped, poorly organized and filled with things we regret wearing.

I believe that a closet should make you feel good. It should be filled with things that bring you joy and make you feel beautiful, and you should be able to easily see everything inside it.

5 Quick Ways To Practice Self Care Daily

When was the last time you practiced some self care?

When was the last time you hit up a yoga class, got a manicure, drank a hot cup of tea or booked a massage?

Guys, life is just SO hustle and bustle. And if you're anything like me you just do NOT know how to take breaks. You have a job, side hustle, friends, fitness routine, love interest and general #adulting to take care of... I still wonder how the heck I'm going to throw kids into all that (eventually)

Change Your Perspective: Rearrange Your Furniture!

I don't know about you, but I find can get REALLY antsy in my space.

Sometimes it's due to a sudden change in my life, or upcoming change. Sometimes it's because nothing has changed in so long I'm starting to get stir-crazy, and sometimes it's because I have a lack of creativity in other areas of my life.

Whenever I start to feel like this, I throw on my comfiest clothes, switch on a movie, and move all the furniture around.
