With how active I am, I end up really hungry throughout the day and try to honor my hunger with snacks. I try to keep healthy snacks on hand, so I don’t reach for junk food.
The last few weeks, I’ve felt like I haven’t been eating as good as I can, and I was looking at some energy ball recipes on Pinterest. When I ran to the grocery store, I totally forgot I wanted to make them and didn’t buy any special ingredients. So, I turned to my pantry to see what I could do with what I already had.
Last weekend, I ran the Hot Dash 10 mile race in Minneapolis. I have run the race the last 2 years as a part of the race series that I did leading up to the Twin Cities Marathon. I was never a huge fan of the race– it’s in the early spring when it’s hard to get out and train, and the course is really hilly. But, it’s always a nice butt kicking to kick off my spring races.
My biggest style secret is that I scrub my favorite brands’ clearance sections looking for the best deals. It takes some work, but I think it’s pretty fun. Most of the clothes that I buy are 70% of retail (or more). Here is today’s best of sale round up– shop soon while it’s still available!
Last month, I re-subscribed to the Rent the Runway monthly update. Our Minnesota winter has gone on far too long, and I’ve exhausted my winter wardrobe. Instead of investing in more sweaters and jackets, I thought it would be cheaper (and more fun) to get back on Rent the Runway.
As I reviewed before, I’m torn between really liking the subscription but also just wanting to buy my own clothes. I have so many summer skirts and dresses, so I will probably stop once the weather gets warm enough to wear them. For now, it’s nice to have access to more cold-weather options!
Over the last few years of owning my home, I have crafted my home from being a broke 23 year old trying to decorate with a budget of $0, to finally being able to invest more into intentional decor pieces. I’m still all about that budget life, but it’s enjoyable to be able buy things instead of just piecing together hand-me-downs.
I’ve finally been able to create my own personal style in my home, and wanted to share my top tips for creating a stylish space.
What I’m loving about March is you. Yes, you! I recently went through a messy friend breakup where some people were treating me pretty poorly, but then acted like I was in the wrong for pointing it out. It made me think about all the times in my life when I accepted being mistreated because I didn’t want to make someone “mad”– in relationships, in friendships, at work.
