Its been a long couple of months for all of us. I hope you are taking care of yourself and your family. Its hard not to be overwhelmed with fear and worry right now. I’ve been trying to spend my time keeping busy with house projects, exercising, and binge watching some of my favorite shows.
I’ve found that turning off the news for most of the day has helped with not feeling so overwhelmed. I’ve also been trying to stay uplifted by motivating myself and others with positive vibes. On my run this weekend, a woman gave me a simple thumbs up, and it meant a lot to have that little bit of positive connection.
In the spirit of positive mindset, I’ve created some uplifting printables that are all free for you to download, print, and use how you would like!

There has been more stress and anxiety in the world the last few months than ever before. Its important to find ways to take a break and rest your mind. Scrolling through beautiful pictures helps calm and inspire me.
For what I’m loving this week, I pulled some beautiful images that inspire me. I hope you keep reading and enjoy this little mental break.
I know a lot of my loyal followers are fellow bloggers. Those of us who post regular content know the challenge of continuing to think of new and engaging topics that are still relevant to our blog. I am certainly one of them!
I have struggled a lot with my blog lately due to the corona virus pandemic. I want to be sure my posts are still useful and relevant to people who are facing all sorts of new challenges in life. I almost stopped blogging completely in the last month, because I just didn’t know what to write.
I’ve been doing a lot of brainstorming the last few weeks on topics that can still be useful and inspiring, and I’m happy that the posts have been flowing once again!
If you’ve ever experienced a blog rough patch, here are a few ideas to stay creative with posts:
I recently shared that it was the 5 year anniversary of when I got laid off from my dream job as a product designer at Target. For me, my job wasn’t just a job. It was something that me and the people around me had worked so hard for. I was a straight A, all of the honor clubs and sports, deans list while juggling jobs and internships type of person. I had done everything to earn my job, and did everything right while there, but still was one of the unlucky people who got let go that day.
One of the easiest ways to decorate a room is to base it all in white. It’s the simplest color choice you will ever make! White is timeless and really easy to style with other neutrals or pops of color. The color also looks beautiful with natural wood tones, especially wood flooring. I don’t have any all white rooms in my house, but some of these inspiration images have me rethinking my color palette!
I realized from my “loving” pinterest board, that I have been pinning tons of images with the color terra cotta in it lately. The color has been popular for the last year or so, but as we transition from summer to fall, it’s such a pretty color to add to your wardrobe or home!
The warmth looks so pretty in interiors, and makes plants and other cool tones pop. I also found some really pretty stationary that feels so new and sophisticated, instead of the same old blush pinks.
For apparel this color can bring a lot of flattering warmth. I love pairing terra cotta with more neutral pieces for a pre-fall outfit. It’s also a beautiful color for lipstick or blush as we transition to fall!
