    Tips For Switching Purses + My Handbag Essentials

    This post has been sponsored by The Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    As a blogger, I tend to switch handbags quite often. Not to mention, it’s something that I need to be able to do pretty quickly! I wanted to share some tips for switching purses that I’ve mastered along the way to help make the process more efficient. Because nothing is worse than forgetting something VITAL in your handbag that you left at home, right?!  In today’s post, I’ll be talking about my can’t-live-without items, tips for switching purses and the perks of switching your bags often!

    The most common bags that I switch between are my large totes and my smaller crossbody bags. Obviously not everything from my large tote will make it into my crossbody, so it’s important for me to know my essentials. (And if you have a husband like mine, I always keep Jordan’s must-have items on me too.) I am excited to team up with Orbit® White gum to “spill” all of the details in today’s full post!

    Blogger Q&A | Updated 1.23.17

    I recently realized that my Blogger Q&A section of my blog was WAY outdated and basically impossible to find, so my weekend mission was to get this thing whipped into shape. Some of the answers are truly meant for longer blog posts, so I have a plan to get started on those as well for better clarity. BUT in the meantime, if you have any questions for me pertaining to blogging or general life shoot me an email! I’m hoping to get everything answered for you guys and make this page more visible with easier access once questions/answers are updated and added.

    6 Inspiring Podcasts For Personal Growth & Business Strategy

    It’s crazy to think that just six months ago, I had never really listened to a podcast before! After leaving my full-time job, I started looking to fill that coworker void that occurs when you work from home. I did so by finding relevant webinars and inspiring podcasts to listen to throughout the day. Now my podcast list has quadrupled, and I’m wondering what took me so long. Not only are they great for personal development, podcasts can help you create the career and life you want to live!

    But how exactly do you go about finding inspiring podcasts aimed at creative entrepreneurs and personal growth? Other than opting in to numerous newsletters, word of mouth has been the BEST way that I’ve discovered my favorite podcasts. So consider this post my word of mouth to you if you’re looking for new inspiring podcasts to dive into!

    (I’m including a few guilty pleasures if you love some reality TV too!)

    Intentional New Year’s Resolutions + Power Words

    Today’s post about my 2017 goals and resolutions has been MUCH more difficult to write than I anticipated! Digging deep into your failures, flaws and shortcomings from the previous year can really be a come-to-Jesus meeting! It’s so easy to reflect on all of the GOOD things that occurred and all of the things that went RIGHT. It’s not so fun to admit what you were terrible at and the areas where you completely missed the mark. So, I’ve been doing some reading on how to set intentional New Year’s resolutions in the form of “power words.”

    Coming up with power words to represent your year can be more actionable when it comes to keeping your goals in sight. Instead of drafting a list of goals that I’ll likely forget about by the end of the month, I’m creating a short list of words to help visualize the upcoming year. The idea came to me after listening to creative entrepreneur podcasts and a few inspiring conversations with my photographers at our favorite coffee spot. (After all, they’re the closest to coworkers that I have!)

    Today, I’m sharing my power words and how I’ll be using them in 2017. I’m also haring my first outfit post of the year – including this striped tote from Sole Society. It seriously makes for best work bag for carrying around my agendas and planners and notebooks! (Not excessive at all.) The cocoon wrap and open toe booties are also comfy go-to pieces for days on-the-go and more coffee meetings to get out of the house!
