Can you believe 2016 is coming to an end? It feels like yesterday when I said, “Can you believe 2015 is coming to an end?” Oh how time flies. Before we dive into a new year, I want to hit the pause button for a sec and reflect on some things. I can only speak for myself when I say DANG! I have so much to be grateful for – it was really an unforgettable year (in a not bragging way, I swear lol).

In my personal life, I grew into my wifey role this year and also:

Many of you have been following my blog for years and have seen countless lovey dovey #StevieandSazan posts time and time again. Before my “happily ever after”, there was a season of heartbreak I went through in a previous relationship. I love focusing on the happy things with you guys, but I feel like some of my babes out there need this post right now more than anything.

Coping with a break up is probably one of the worst feelings we have to overcome. It’s hard to picture my life without Steve, and I can’t imagine what life would look …

Hey everybody and happy almost Halloween!!

I have a little confession to make. Stevie and I have been together for YEARS and we have never done a couple’s Halloween costume. How lame is that?! So this year I decided we needed to start the tradition here on my blog. I decided to be Steve’s favorite dessert… a cookie! Of course, I wanted him to the milk!

We wanted to get creative and DIY our costumes, and I’m so glad we did because they turned out so cute!! My cookie costume is from Studio DIY. Kelly is one of my …

Happy Monday cuties! I sat down with Galore Mag for a fun Q&A interview. From how I got started in blogging to beauty secrets and upcoming projects… Check it out!

So you got your start as a blogger. What were you first blogging about?

I saw my blog as a lifestyle online magazine. I would share things that inspired me, like what was going on with the runways and how to get the look for less. I’m all about chasing style on a budget. Then I noticed people wanted to see me more involved, so I started doing tutorials, and …

Do you remember when you were a little kid and your mom would pack up the mini van and head to the mall for the yearly back-to-school-shopping trip? Man I miss those days! I feel like I’m coming up on those days again but in a whole new way…so crazy! (disclaimer: I am not pregnant lol)

This outfit brings back nostalgia because I got the look from JCPenney! That seriously used to be my favorite department store growing up. Even though times and styles have changed, the one thing that hasn’t changed is the affordability. And I’ll forever be a …

Thank you all for the sweet birthday wishes yesterday! I had the most relaxing day ever. I’m in Texas visiting family for a few more days and thought I would share a fun little birthday post. I came up with 27 things I’ve learned about myself over the years. Don’t judge me for #20.

1. Honesty is the best policy – I used to think telling a little white lie here and there was okay, but the older I’m getting the more I’ve learned that honesty is the best policy. I kept Steve a secret from my parents for years …

One question you guys often ask (especially lately!) is when Stevie and I will have kids. By the looks of this photo it must be time, right? Not so fast….

Girl Talk (Boys skip this part): When we were in New York last week something felt different. I noticed I was a few days late – but that’s normal when I travel. What I couldn’t understand was why I started spotting. That never happens to me. I somehow convinced myself I was pregnant and told Steve the news. Stevie looked at me like God knows how many times when I’ve …

Today I’m going to share some tips for maintaining a positive attitude in the workplace. I know it can be tough (especially if you’re under a lot of pressure) but keeping the workplace vibe upbeat and positive can make a huge difference in the success of your business, and your life.

As you guys know, I started this blog on my own. I was the only employee for several years before Steve came on as my partner. At first, it was hard letting go of certain responsibilities when I was used to doing it all myself. Not to mention, working …

You read the title right. Several months ago, I got an email from a man named Jordan. He told me that his wifey-to-be (Rachel) was a HUGE supporter of mine. He then went on to personally invite Stevie and I to their August 2016 wedding in Canada. Never in a million years did he think we would even see the email! My first reaction was, “OMG. This is so sweet!” My second thought was, “Why do I have this strong feeling in my heart that I need to be there?” It took us just a few minutes after reading it …
