Why it's ok to say no

June 29, 2018

Earrings: Forever 21 Top: Chicwish c/o Jeans: Express Wedges: Jellypop c/o

Looking for a cute top to wear with friends or to work? I've got you covered! This top from Chicwish  would look so cute tucked in a skirt for work or with some jeans and wedges like I did for happy hour! This gorgeous mesh ruffle top makes me look so sweet and innocent but that doesn't mean I don't know how to stand my ground. As of recently I have had tons of people asking me to do things for my blog and post things that just aren't me and aren't something I would represent. It's hard in the blogging world because if you are a 'yes' person like me, you typically want to say yes to everyone. I'm always like well what if they never email me again or what if this is my only chance....blah blah blah. But if you don't feel confident about a product or whatever a company is asking of you, don't do it. I want you to apply this to your everyday life as well, not just with blogging. My mom literally says 'yes' to e v e r y o n e. She never does anything for herself and I'm trying to teach her that it's not selfish if she says no sometimes! Love you mom! 

This is your life and only you can take control of it. My friend Lindsay just started a podcast called Let's Get Real and it is so empowering! I told her after listening to it I truly felt like I could conquer the world. Don't let other people dictate how you run your life, remember you only live once! :)

Gingham Love + My 7 Day Challenge

June 12, 2018

Earrings: Nissa Jewelry c/o Bracelet: Shop Bella & Bloom c/o (use NICOLE15 for 15% off your order!) Dress: Chicwish c/o Shoes: Jellypop c/o (only $35 and SO COMFY!) Bag: Leander Boutique, similar here Flowers: Three Buds Flower Market

Gingham lover or no? Honestly I never used to be but when I saw this dress on Chicwish's website and the wrap detail I was already picturing how cute it would be. It reminds me of a little picnic dress. I want to take a picnic now lol. Chicwish as you know has been one of my favorite places to shop forever and I love all of their summer clothes they have right now. I linked my favorites below!  

I wanted to share with you guys this 7 day challenge Justin and I decided to do in case you wanted to try! Our biggest argument is what are we going to have for dinner so with this challenge, we don't even have to think because we just know it has to be from the list we made for ourselves. Now I'm only on day two but so far I've lost 3lbs. I'm not doing this to lose weight, rather just to feel healthier but I do have that chub on my stomach when I sit down and I would like to get rid of that, you feel me? So if you want to try here is what we are doing. We decided to pick 10 items and that is all we can have for one week. This is our list:

1) Eggs
2) Chicken
3) Beef
4) Protein Powder (for protein shakes)
5) Rice Cakes
6) Peanut Butter (all natural)
7) Broccoli and or Spinach
8) Oatmeal
9) Blueberries
10) Salad 

*** Plus I told Justin I am allowing myself my coffee I get from Starbucks, lol. It's only 80 calories. Do you think you could do it?
