Busy Girl Life Hacks with Fred Meyer

I’ve come to realize that everyone is busy. Some of us are juggling full-time work and a side hustle. Others are juggling a demanding career and family time. And some of us enjoy a combination of a little busyness from many things, be it hobbies, fitness, spending time with friends and family, volunteering your time, or any other multitude of activities.

The thing is though; I don’t want to give up busyness. I, like many of you, enjoy the challenge that being busy and utilizing my time can bring. What I focus on instead, however, is how to hack the things that don’t bring me joy. For me, cooking, grocery shopping, and gardening end up high on that list. While I love and appreciate each of those things, I would rather work on my blog, catch up with friends, or work on house projects instead. It’s all about balance and finding out where you most enjoy spending your time.

5 Ways to Treat Your Skin Right This Summer // Sand and Sky Mask Review

Summer is often a time when my skin gets neglected. From taking walks in the sun to forgetting to drink enough water, my skin is often going from one extreme to another. One day I’ll be battling sweat, grime, and oil, and the next day my skin will feel more like the Sahara Desert. Often, this can cause me to flip flop between different skin care products, trying to find just the right blend of lotions and potions to make my skin feel somewhat normal.

Improving Connectivity in Our New House with eero

As a self-described tech nerd, something that surprised me about our new house was all of the connectivity issues we noticed right off the bat! Maybe it’s the older neighborhood, but we quickly found that the cell service left much to be desired. We knew we had to get high-speed internet access installed right away and counted down the days until our installation date. Even after that happened, we still noticed dead zones and connection problems throughout the house and outside. The first time I worked from home, I took my laptop to work outside (I mean, it’s summer, might as well enjoy it!) and I couldn’t even get online. So much for getting work done!

Immediately I knew we had to fix this problem. What’s the point in having a great outdoor space that’s perfect for working in when you can’t even use it?! I quickly went to work on finding a solution and searched on Amazon for the best home WiFi set up. That’s when eero popped up. And then I saw them again on ProductHunt. And then, I had the opportunity to partner with them! You could say it was fate. Or just some really, really good luck.

Simple Summer Dress Outfits // Story of My Dress for Poshmark Collection 

When I began blogging, I had no idea how much it would change my life. It sounds dramatic, but it’s also very true. I’ve made new life long friends, been involved in interesting projects, and been able to do things that never even crossed my mind. Like go below the SeaTac airport and skip security for an event. Or hang out in a mattress store and get my hair braided. Or get invited to meet Demi Lovato before her concert. Told you.

I’m not saying this to brag, promise. I didn’t get into blogging because of things like this. I didn’t think any of these things were even possible for smaller bloggers. But as I’ve blogged, the ride of the micro influencer (described as those with less than 100,000 followers or so, depending on whose speaking about it) has changed the landscape.

Summer Outfits for Work

Air conditioner quit working at your office? Or do you have the type of office where it’s so cold that you dress like it’s fall outside?! Either way, over the years I’ve found myself in both situations and have plenty of suggestions for how to dress for warm weather, even if we don’t get a ton of it here in Seattle!

What to wear in an overly air-conditioned office

At present, my office is often so cold that it feels more like fall inside while outside it has been in the 70s. The concrete jungle of the city makes it feel even warmer when walking from place to place, so it’s it can be tough to navigate the cold inside versus the heat outside.
