Weekend // Newport Aquarium



Last weekend was so much fun! Marin and I traveled down to Newport, KY to visit my parents and go to the Newport Aquarium. We head down on Friday evening after I left work, so we could get up first thing on Saturday morning and get the day started.

Empties // Spring 2019




I definitely want to get back into posting on here more regularly. It was nice to step away for a bit, but I missed the blogging community over the past 8-ish months! So here I am, with two posts in one week - baby steps, right? 

I've been trying my best to not purchase too many new beauty and skin care items without finishing what I already have first. I was able to hit empty on quite a few things over the past month, so I wanted to share some of them and let you know my final thoughts on each item.

Life Update




Wow. It has been way too long since I got on here and posted. It felt weird to jump into other posts before talking a bit about everything major that has happened over the last few months...

So, here are a couple of quick life updates!

Marin's Nursery



About time I got around to sharing this, since my daughter is over a year old! 

Honest truth though? The nursery wasn't finished until somewhat recently because Marin was sleeping in our bedroom for the first 12 months...first in a bassinet, and then we had her crib in our room too once she outgrew the bassinet. However, we made the transition around the time she was a year old, and she is now sleeping in her own room (most of the time - lol). 


When I was putting together her nursery, I really wanted a very neutral space. We aren't big into bright colors or bold patterns anywhere else in the house, so I didn't want this room to be any different. My goal was to create a space that felt natural and calm, with a touch of mid century and bohemian flare.

Cruelty-free Skincare // Ole Henriksen


Ole Henriksen cruelty free

A few weeks ago, I got online and ordered a bunch of trial sized items from Ole Henriksen to take for a test drive. This skin care brand has just entered my radar as of the past few months and I've been wanting to try some things out after hearing good reviews! 

I've been using everything for a while now, so I wanted to hop on here to report back and let you know what I've been liking - and considering purchasing full sized...and what I'm going to take a pass on.
