    My Journey with Budgeting

    Hi loves❤️ Throughout my teen years and early adulthood – I always heard negative comments & vibes about budgeting and finances. I looked at finances as a scary monster in the corner that no one should look at. I thought, I’m paying my bills on time AND I still have money leftover. I must be doing fine. Boy was I wrong. I have always known about credit cards – and opened my first one when I was starting at Purdue. I opened my first credit card to build my credit. It was all sunshine and rainbows until about my junior year of college. Jordan and I had just got our…

    How to Create an Evening Routine

    Hi loves❤️ As most of ya’ll know – the past few months I have been working hard on creating a morning routine. In my morning routine I aimed to start getting up earlier – and so far so good. As we head into the last 90 days of 2019, I would love to get my wake up time pushed back 30 more minutes. This would have me getting up by 7:00am. I have been getting up anywhere from 7:15 – 7:30 currently – and the one thing that has really helped me change my wake up time? Creating an evening routine. Having a routine around bedtime helps my mind tell…

    5 Simple Self Care Methods

    Hi loves❤️ If you know me, you know that I take self-care very seriously. If you can’t take care of yourself regularly – how do you think you can keep up with everyday life? I am constantly on the grind between my full time position, weight lifting five days a week, running this blog, and somehow tending to my relationships in my life. When I start to get overwhelmed and overly stressed, I turn to one thing. Self Care. Self Care can look differently for each person since it is about taking care of YOURSELF. So what may help de-stress and relax Cindy over there may not help you at…

    The Last 90 Days Challenge

    Hi loves❤️ We are quickly approaching the last three months of the year. It’s crazy to think we have almost finished 2019. This year I am trying something different as we get closer to 2020. Rachel Hollis has a program where she focuses on creating habits to help propel yourself into the new year. I remember last year around this time – Rach was standing on her soap box preaching about how important it is to get started early. To start focusing on the person you want to be now – so you can get a few habits under your belt. To be honest, I was a little scared to…

    20 Fall Slow-Cooker Recipes

    Hi loves❤️ Here in Cornfield nation, we are starting to see cooler temps. Do you know what that means?!? Pumpkin Lattes, Sweater Weather, Boots, Cute Jackets…. but most importantly FALL SOUP SEASON I’m am the biggest fan of soups because who doesn’t love a quick and simple meal? All of these soups use your slow-cooker, but I’m sure with a few tweaks these can be recreated on the stove top too. I am a slow-cooker pro, as it saves me time & doesn’t require a lot of work. Fall time is my absolute favorite season and I hate taking time away from corn mazes, pumpkin carving, and sipping on pumpkin…

    What I Keep In My Gym Bag

    Hi loves ❤️ Are you a recent Gym lover? Do you seem to never have what you need at the gym? One thing I struggled with when I first started consistently going to the gym was feeling under prepared. I wanted to pass my knowledge to all of you beginner gym rats. I am always prepared for the unexpected – and you can be too! My gym bag is just a simple Amazon find. My gym, Planet Fitness, provides you with a free bag when you sign up – but I never found the bag they provided was big enough. It definitely got me by for awhile. I love my…

    The Top 3 Platforms for Personal Growth

    Hi loves❤️, If you have been following me for a bit – then you know, I am a HUGE believer in personal development and continuous personal growth. I fell in love with personal growth when I was seeking non-medicinal help for my anxiety. A few anxiety specific personal growth books were added to my Christmas list a few years ago – and the rest was history. Timelines are a bit fuzzy for me, but this was either Christmas ’16 or ’17. I quickly became obsessed with gaining more knowledge. There is so much information out there – it can sometimes get overwhelming. I found if I narrowed down the subject…
