Recreate Favorite Holiday Looks

 Nothing makes me feel more warm and happy inside than the holiday season. 2020 will not take the joy out of it either, lol. The holidays will look a lot different this year, but I am still excited for them! I just wanted to look back on some holiday fun from last year, and find some similar pieces to recreate the festive looks! I know that Thanksgiving is next week, so if you need some inspo, here you go (and yes these could be considered too festive for turkey day, but its part of the holidays and plaid is a must!)   New J.

Cozy at Home Gift Guide

  I have my third special gift guide, today. Today's guide is about gifting a cozy home experience to someone. Personally, I really need to be able to enjoy winter and not feel cooped up, so I think making your space cozy, and gifting things for a cozy space is such a great idea. It is fun to have things that make staying indoors more enjoyable! You will find things such as games, puzzles, and cozy layers in this gift guide.

Life Lately

  I have a little update post today! I may make this into a series, but I would want to find a new title first, so if you have suggestions, leave them below! I thought it would be fun to share a few personal updates but also include sections on what I am reading, watching, drinking and shopping for! Life Updates: Like many 20-somethings in 2020, I have fought that I may need to move home. But after thinking about it A LOT, I have decided that is whats best for me at this point. It will be great to save money and spend so much time with my family before I hopefully attend medical school next fall. It will also be amazing to be there for the holidays, and not have to worry about travel. If you do not know, I am from Minnesota, but moved to New Jersey for graduate school in 2018. It was always my dream to live on the East coast and be close to NYC, and could finally live that out in 2018. I am sad to leave the East, but am vowing that I will be back soon! (So all the NJ, NY, PA, and CT sc

My Wish List (more gift ideas!)

  I am sharing my own wishlist today. Every year, I feel guilty asking for things for some reason, but my mom/family always asks me for a list and to give a few suggestions! (Anyone else not like to pick out their own gifts haha? I just love the thoughtfulness and surprise element!) I tried to think of practical things and things that I will get a ton of use out of this winter and upcoming year. I think I did a good job of curating my own list, haha. If you need more gift ideas, or are not sure of what to ask for, this might be a great place to start! (you can also scroll down to shop the post!!)

Lately, I have been using a big mason jar and straw combo that I fill up so many times per day. It gets annoying to keep refilling my cup, and I would really love a Hydroflask! I would also like a straw lid to go with it for very easy hydrating, haha.  Mini Uggs : I h

I Used to be a Picky Reader

The title of this post is true, and I was a picky reader. I would even say the phrase "I am a picky reader" when I was younger and in school. I couldn't even tell you what exactly I envisioned for the type of books I liked when I was picky- I read, but was VERY selective with my reads, haha. I have to laugh at it now, as I look back. In the past couple of years, however, I have really let my reading guards down, and am just reading really anything. Well, not quite anything because I do not like super scary books that I cannot read before bed, haha.  I feel like I have had a personal reading renaissance! I really just want to be reading, and will read whatever I can get my hands on. I have realized that I enjoy many genres from nonfictions like science, history and biographies, to fictions that grab me in and tell a great story that I can picture in my head as I read along. I had the realization that I am no longer a picky reader when I asked my best girlfriends for some b
