Outfit Ideas for Galentine’s Day

You know what my favorite weekend activity is? Brunching. It made the top of my Valentine’s Date idea list and when it came to planning a celebration of all things Galentine’s Day, my friend Megan and I knew brunch it was! We set off to meet our friend Julia at Pomegranate Bistro in Redmond for a little blogger catch up and girl time.

It was a gross day; gray and rainy, but we braved the storm because when you wear a cute outfit, it must be documented! Fortunately, Seattle bloggers are used to the rain and are willing to do almost anything to get the shot. We didn’t come prepared with the right outfits exactly, but we made it work. Anything for the blog. Almost.

Valentine’s Day Date Ideas + What to Wear for Couples

Figuring out something to do for Valentine’s Day is always a challenge. If the holiday falls on a weekday, it’s hard to feel motivated to want to do something special with your significant other. If it falls on a weekend, getting reservations at your favorite restaurant can be a straight up nightmare.

The thing is, though, Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be a cause of stress or cost an enormous amount of money to celebrate. In fact, while it’s a holiday to enjoy, it ranks low on the list of things I worry about. Why? Because to me, Valentine’s Day is more about celebrating the company you keep (whether that’s your significant other, or if you’re single, your gal pals for Galentine’s Day) then it is about making a big gesture or doing something incredibly romantic.

15 Fun Valentines Day Date Ideas for Couples

For us, Valentine’s Day ends up being a fairly casual holiday. We typically don’t get too dressed up (mostly because my birthday is right around the same time, so we’ve recently done a fancier dinner and date night out). When I was brainstorming ideas for Valentines Day posts, I knew I wanted to challenge myself to style both Dave and I. After popping over to our local Fred Meyer; I had several outfit selections for Dave to approve or reject. Both entire outfits came to about $150 each (that includes shoes also!). Once we were in our new Valentines Day outfits, it was just time to figure out what exactly we were going to be doing in them!

5 Simple Ways to Make Your Lipstick Last All Day // Giveaway!

With the rise of the long wear liquid lipstick, it would seem like there’d be no need to figure out a way to make your lipstick last all day. The thing is, though, long wear liquid lipsticks are notorious for leaving your pout extremely parched. As much as I love a good liquid lip, I still reach for my traditional lipsticks, especially in the winter months.

7 Hacks to Simplify Your Day for Every #GirlBoss

I know many of you, like me, are juggling a side gig with a full-time job or other life commitments. Time is of paramount importance when you have so much going on. Over the past 3+ years of blogging, I’ve learned that some things just fall by the wayside when you are extremely busy, and you’re forced to either skip them or do them poorly.

When I’m not at my 9-5, I’m working on shooting photos for the blog or Instagram posts. Or, I’m coordinating with brands who are interested in working with me, responding to general inquiries via email, attempting to schedule my content on social media, and then trying to come up with creative new topics and content for the blog itself. I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t hard trying to be creative both at work and in my side gig. I do my best which means that sometimes, I end up falling asleep in front of my computer when the writer’s block hits or staying up until 5 am editing a video because I’m just not quite done yet. (Yes, both of these have happened. Maybe a bit more regularly than I’d like to admit.)
