Although I always try to look my best, I haven’t always been a big makeup person. I’m the kind of person that wants to be healthy from the inside and just highlight my best features. Unfortunately, I’ve also had terrible skin most of my life and have tried a lot of makeup to cover up breakouts, but also not cause more! After a lot of trial and error, I’ve found a really good group of products that allows me to look like naturally me, but just better.

**Warning this post is a personal one! So if you’re just here for the home remodel DIYs you can skip ahead. But I’d love for you to stay! 🙂
I shared with you all a few months ago that my new years resolution this year was to just do things. I’m the type of person that always talks myself out of trying something new and I feel like that’s kept me from going after the things I really want to do in life.
One of those things that has always been on my “what if” list was trying out to be an NFL cheerleader. I had no idea of my potential and haven’t danced in years, but why not try? I took the leap and signed up for the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders prep classes and tryouts. There was no going back!

After running a few half marathons the past couple of years, I finally took the plunge and ran my first full marathon last October. Over my time of training and racing I’ve tried all sorts of gear and goods to help with running and thought I’d share my advice for any of the newer runners out there.
I tend to get really nervous before races and like to know as much as possible ahead of time so nothing unexpected happens. In the last year, I’ve had races during below freezing temps, pouring rain, and extreme heat so I’ve learned to always be prepared!

Looking back on 2017, I did a good job of setting yearly and monthly goals. I’ve found that writing out goals, making a plan, and reminding yourself of the plan helps hold yourself accountable. It’s so easy to start out a new year with the best intentions, but it takes a lot of work to keep up with the things you promise yourself!
Most of my goals revolve around a bigger training plan for running, but I also love setting little monthly goals like “eat more veggies”, “eat less sugar at breakfast”, or “don’t shop online this month”. You really can do anything for just one month!

Over the last year, I’ve been working very hard training for my first full marathon, the Twin Cities Marathon in my home town of Minneapolis. The training has been pretty intense– especially the past few months, but I am proud to report that I am now a marathon finisher with a time of 4:00:11!

Some of you may or may not know that I went to college for fashion design and work in product design and development for home decor at Target headquarters. (I usually don’t say too much on this blog because I try to keep work and my life outside of work separate for my own sanity!)
I’ve always loved fashion and style and I’m so grateful that I was able to make a career out of something that I enjoy. Back when I was in school I dreamed of being able to buy all of the clothes that I wanted and have THE coolest outfits around. Not quite there yet, but I still love picking out outfits and finding the best deals on designer pieces.
