June 2017 Calendar Wallpapers

june 2017 calendar backgrounds

Schools…..out…..for…summer! Well at least for us down south.  School is out, the floaties are in the pool, the grill is fired up and the sun is shining! I miss the days when summer meant hanging out in the pool all day and sleeping in. Now summer just means hotter temperatures and less traffic, oh adulthood!

But, I can live vicariously through my festive computer background and pretend I am poolside with a margarita in hand, instead of at my desk. Here are your wallpapers for June, Designer Blogs and Sarah Hearts are my absolute favorites this month. They both scream summertime but in very different ways. Enjoy!

May 2017 Calendar Wallpapers

may 2017 calendar wallpapers

I know I have been slacking the past few months on my posts but there has been a reason why! Since last November, I have been feeling really exhausted and tired. When I say tired and exhausted I mean, sleep for nine hours, take a two hour nap and still be tired. After a visit to the doctors office and some blood work, I found out that I have a vitamin deficiency which was causing me to feel tired 24/7. I am in the process of getting my vitamin levels to where they need to be and hopefully in a few weeks I will be feeling back to normal!

Also, I know with summer right around the corner, vacation planning is in full swing! If you are in the middle of planning your summer vacations or planning a trip to Europe, check out my Europe Travel Guide! It has some information on my month long adventure through Europe and some of the sites I used to plan my trip. I promise when I start feeling back to normal, I will continue to work on my Travel Europe Series! In the meantime, enjoy these May wallpapers!

16 Spring Dresses for Easter

spring easter dresses

Springtime is in full bloom and Easter is right around the corner! I repeat, Easter is right around the corner! Aside from the awful pollen and allergies, I love spring. I love color, all of the flowers and especially all of the seasonal fruit. I have a recipe for a lemon berry tiramisu that is out of this world. The lemon and berries pair so well together and it has such a light and refreshing taste to it compared to traditional tiramisu, which I also love to make. (If you need some baking inspiration for Easter, check out my 10 Easter Themed Deserts)
But lets focus on the task at hand, Easter attire. I have found 16 gorgeous dresses in lots of spring colors and patterns that would be perfect for Easter. Lauren Conrad just released a new line called Dress Up Shop and so many of her dresses are perfect for spring. I added some of my favorites below but if you want to check out her entire line, click here! Happy shopping! I’ll be posting my wallpaper roundup for April this weekend so if you haven’t already, subscribe to my monthly newsletter and I’ll send them straight to your inbox!

Valentines Day Gift Guide


Ah Valentines Day, the holiday that everyone loves to hate. If you’re solo, you hate Valentines Day because it just reminds you that you’re alone, as if you didn’t already know. But if you have arm candy, you love Valentines Day because you get showered with presents and affection. I personally don’t care for Valentines Day but, who doesn’t love getting presents?! I love getting presents almost as much as I love giving them. Before I started dating my current boyfriend, I used to buy Valentines Day gifts for my gal pals because why not! We don’t need a man to feel wonderful and loved, #GIRLPOWER!

I put together a Valentines Day gift guide to help you find that perfect gift. Whether you’re shopping for your dude or your bestest gal pal, I’ve got you covered! The Edwin Jagger Nickel Double-Edge Razor Gift Set and Vintage Map of the Moon are two of my favorites for your main man. When it comes to your bestest gal pal, you can’t go wrong with some Sugarfina Champagne Gummy Bears and a Sephora Face Mask. Happy Valentines Day!

6 Tips to Keep Your New Years Resolutions All Year Long


If I had a dollar for every time I heard someone say ‘New Year, New Me!’ I would be such a rich girl. The end of the year is always a great time to reflect on the past year and think about what you accomplished, what you didn’t accomplish, what you wish you had done differently and how you want the upcoming year to be different.  New years resolutions are the perfect opportunity for those of you who want to make a positive change in your life and be one step closer to the person you want to become. But lets be honest, new years resolutions can be hard to keep. Here are six tips to help you keep your new years resolutions all year long!

Be Realistic

There are some goals that you can set for yourself that are very realistic, like lose 20 pounds this year or stop eating meat on Mondays. Then there are unrealistic goals you can set for yourself like, participate in Ironman this year, when you have zero training and can’t even run a mile or get my Master’s degree this year, when you haven’t even enrolled in a graduate program. Long term goals are great but if you are coming up with new year’s resolutions, be realistic with yourself. If you want to get your Master’s degree, make your new year’s resolution to enroll in a graduate program. If your long term goal is to compete in Ironman, make your new years resolution to participate in a triathlon.

Don’t Go Overboard

I guarantee you that every person that looks at themselves has a long list of things they wish they could change about themselves. I want to be skinner, I want to eat less sugar, I wish I weren’t so pessimistic, the list goes on and on. The celebration of a new year is a great way to reevaluate your life and make positive changes. Just remember that when you are making resolutions, not to go overboard. Instead of having ten new years resolutions, try five. Having too many resolutions can make you feel stressed because you are trying to accomplish so much and when you don’t complete all of your resolutions you feel like a failure.

Have a Variety of Resolutions

If you’re anything like me, it’s usually go big or go home. But with new years resolutions, I try to ditch that mind set. I do set a large new years resolution or two but I also include some not so big, easier resolutions as well. A great example would be to have a new years resolution to lose 20 pounds and read at least 15 minutes before bed everyday. Losing 20 pounds a lot more time and effort than reading in bed for 15 minutes.

Partner Up

How many new years resolutions have you made in your lifetime? And of those resolutions, how many of them have you actually kept? There is probably a big discrepancy between the two and that’s mostly because life happens. You get busy, off track and next thing you know its only March and you have already given up. A great way to make yourself accountable and keep your new years resolutions is to partner with someone. If you want to go to the gym three times a week, find a friend who goes to the gym or also has the same resolution so you can both keep each other accountable.

Celebrate All Victories

New years resolutions are all about making positive changes in your life and making yourself more of the person you want to be. Just by reevaluating your life and making resolutions, is a reason to celebrate! If your goal is to lose 20 pounds, don’t just celebrate that goal, celebrate when you lose a pound or when you go to the gym three times a week. Eventually all those small victories lead to you reaching your ultimate goal so make sure you celebrate every small victory.

See Them Everyday

A great way to hold yourself accountable is to look at your new years resolutions everyday, even multiple times a day. Doing this makes you think about what you can do that day to work towards your resolution. It also reminds you to keep working towards your goals.
