Friday Finds – April 20, 2018

If you’re wondering if I’ll explain why I’ve been MIA from the blogging world for the last six months, I’m afraid you’re in for a disappointment. While I’m not here to discuss my hiatus, I am excited to come back with an update to my “Friday Finds.” Hopefully, you’ll think it was worth the wait. […]

Friday Finds – October 6, 2017

This week I tried something different: I cleared my schedule (with the exception of extremely important appointments) and focused 110% on me. I closed the laptop, avoided taking on “extra” work for just one week – the hardest part of this little challenge – and just sought out the things that made me happy. Now, […]

Friday Finds – September 29, 2017

Happy Friday – but more importantly, Happy National Coffee Day! As a major coffee drinker, today is up there with Christmas for me. In honor of this occasion, I figured I would have today’s “Friday Finds” be dedicated to all things coffee. Of course, if you’re looking for additional ways to celebrate, check out this […]

Conquering the Consignment Sale

Earlier today, I had the opportunity to check out Divine Consign – a huge designer consignment sale that comes to the Milwaukee area roughly six times a year. I’ve been a longtime shopper at this sale and, of course, had plenty of luck finding items at this event. As I was driving home, I thought […]

When in Wisconsin: Trek Headquarters Tour

Even though I have a serious love-hate relationship with my home state (it’s not personal, I just hate the tundra climate every winter), I thought it would be fun to showcase various places throughout Wisconsin.

Another week down and this Friday, I had no issue finding shows and articles to recommend – but products were another story! It’s going to be hot this weekend in Wisconsin and I’m not quite in the “fall weather” state of mind for my clothes yet. Luckily, there has been so much cute Halloween decor […]

From Fitbit to the Apple Watch: My Thoughts So Far

It’s been almost a week now that I’ve had my Apple Watch and since I’ve had a number of people ask about my opinion of the product (especially as someone that previously used a Fitbit), I figured I’d summarize my experience – so far, at least – in a review. A Little Background I purchased […]

Red Carpet Favorites: 2017 Emmy Awards Edition

I love watching the Emmys not only for its showcase of the best performances in television – but also because the red carpet is always incredible every single year. This past Sunday was no exception. There were a number of looks that I loved but I managed to narrow it down to five specific actresses […]

Friday Finds – September 15, 2017

Another week down and we’re already halfway through September? I’m finally starting to get excited about fall and am thinking of doing some seasonal decorations around the house this weekend (I still haven’t decided if it’s too early for Halloween yet – it’s one of my favorite holidays but is about six weeks away….). In […]

Making “Smart” Choices for Wearable Technology

After the Apple announcement yesterday, it only felt right to dedicate today’s post to “wearable technology” (as products like fitness trackers and smart watches have become labeled). It’s crazy how just a few years ago, these products didn’t even exist – now personally, I cannot imagine my life without them. Fitbit Flex I’ve been a […]
