Friday Confessions and Ramblings

TGIF! I admit that my creative well is a bit dried up this week, but I also love to sit down and write whatever currently is on my mind. So, let’s kick off the weekend with some Friday confessions and ramblings.

Friday Confessions and Ramblings

All outfit details (exact and similar) can be found here!

| I (think) I mentioned a while back that we are considering trading in our Canon t5i DSLR for something a bit lighter/travel-friendly. I couldn’t have found this post at a better time because now we’re leaning toward the Canon G7X. I love that I wouldn’t have to worry about packing two separate lenses, and hello Wi-Fi capability! Sure, it supposedly doesn’t have the BEST picture quality but I don’t care. Nobody is visiting my little space of the Web for great pictures anyway. 😉

| I’m considering this backpack as a new travel/carry-on bag. Thoughts?

| My next 5k is on the calendar! (You can read about my first 5k experience here!) Admittedly, I didn’t waste much time looking for my next race because I want to keep up the motivation at the gym. It’s much easier when you’re working toward an end-goal. Besides wanting to look good in a bikini on the beach in Florida in two months … yikes, don’t remind me.

| Want to know my new secret for hitting my steps every day? I park my new car in the furthest spot possible in any store parking lot. I’m not taking any risks quite yet – I don’t want someone to ding it!

| I already fell back in love with American Eagle jeans, now their denim shorts are my jam, too! Thanks to Lindsay for recommending these distressed winners. I went with a size 4, and they fit great. I probably could’ve even sized up to a 6, but they do stretch so I didn’t want anything too baggy. If you’re on the fence because of the button-up fly, have no fear. I can get these on/off with only undoing the top two buttons. The things we do to avoid annoying inconveniences, right?

| It has become SO fun to share makeup/beauty stuff over on Instagram stories. A lot of you have given me such great feedback on it, too which I really appreciate. Expect that to continue for the foreseeable future, and I will be filming some tutorials for the blog soon!

| I’m getting the itch to cut my hair again IN A BIG WAY … but, then I remind myself how miserable I usually am when I do cut it. So, I think I’m going to opt for a slightly different blonde color at my next appointment. I’m feeling like it’s a bit blown out/over-processed right now anyway. Check out my Pinterest board for some inspiration. This beauty gives me all the heart eyes.

| This song, though. Can’t. stop. listening. I think it has such a good and fun beat.

Alright, I’ll cut off my Friday confessions and ramblings before this turns into a novel. We’re headed off to our first experience at the Wisconsin State Fair today – give me all the fair food and people watching!

Have a great weekend, everybody!

ICYMI this week, I shared 4 tips for selling used clothes and accessories and July books hits and misses.
