How to Train for Your First 5k

If your new year’s resolution is to get in shape, I personally believe there is no better way than to start running! A great way to motivate yourself is to sign up for a 5k race. Races give you a goal to work towards and motivation to push yourself on race day!

If you’ve never run a 5k before, here are my top tips to prepare for race day.

6 Style Tips to Look like Fashion Pro

If you feel like you’re one of those people who will never be “stylish”, there is hope! A lot of times it’s not the clothes that you have, but the unique way that you wear them that makes your stylish look. Here are 6 tips to pulling together an outfit that will make you feel like a style pro.

  1. If you struggle with style, stick to the basics. Dark skinny jeans, button up blouses, simple cozy sweaters, and classic cut dresses won’t go out of style, and are the easiest way to look polished every day. Start with basics and add pops through statement shoes, jewelry, or a bold lip color.

Rebuilding Vintage Cupboards

One of the plans that I have always had for my kitchen remodel was to remove the dishwasher that was added into my cupboards.

My Favorite Spring 2019 Couture Looks

Couture fashion shows are my favorite part of the fashion industry. They truly represent the art of fashion and the art of clothing making. Couture garments are all handmade, in stunning detail. There is a great documentary on Netflix called 7 Days Out with an episode about a Chanel Couture show, if you’re curious about what goes into it! The art of fashion shows like these are the reason I went to school for fashion design.

This week is the Spring 2019 Couture fashion week, and the shows have not disappointed. My favorite show is always Givenchy—I personally love their aesthetic and reinvented silhouettes. Dior’ show took on a circus theme with just enough influence to keep the garments designed and not theme-y. Elie Saab keeps to a very consistent look show after show, but the gowns are none-the-less stunning. There is now doubt this collection will be all over the red carpet at upcoming award shows.

And then there was Viktor & Rolf who made a literal statement with each look. Clever, bold, and 2019 mood for sure.

Painting My Kitchen Walls

After completing my subway tile backsplash, the next step of my kitchen remodel was to paint the walls. I previously shared that I wanted to keep the minty retro green color but to lighten and brighten it a little bit to give my kitchen a brighter look.
