Motivation Monday: Don't create a spiraled setback

What a wacky weekend we've had weather-wise! Saturday was amazing and all I wanted to do was go walking outside. On Sunday I opted for a gym workout as I didn't want to be outside in that slushy mess!

I wanted to share a picture I found that really stuck with me. One that I can completely relate to because I've been there.


I've given up on a goal just because of a single setback. That setback pushed me so far back I just spiraled and spiraled out of control. That led to me gaining a lot of weight back and losing every single healthy habit I had. It sucked.

But that's life and you learn. Next time I think about giving up or throwing in the towel I'm going to remember this picture and not let myself do it. You've got to do it for yourself!

Hope you have a great week!

Motivation Monday: Make the Jump



Hi all,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are ready for another great week!

I wanted to talk about believing in yourself today. Believing in yourself enough to step outside of your comfort zone and taking that leap of faith. It's easy to say that we want to change and easy to say where we want to go or how we want to do it. The major factor in that is the "doing" part. Taking that jump.. believing in yourself enough to say "this is what I want and I AM going to get it". Then actively taking the steps to get there.


This can be about anything at all. This can be about eating healthier, going to the gym more, trying to be more social, making family time a priority... basically anything where you are stepping outside of your comfort zone or a place where you may need improvement.

Some people say that they don't want to go to the gym because they're worried about what people think or that people might stare at them. Can you honestly look back and remember someone from your last trip to the gym? What someone was doing or what they were wearing? Unless I knew the person, I can't say that I do. It's time to start believing in yourself more and stop caring what other people think. Make yourself a priority and you will thank yourself later!

Believe in yourself folks! Become who you want to be!

Steph :)

What I'm Wearing

Here I am again with my current look of the day, I can't keep my eyes off these sparkly beauties. Taking a picture that truly showed off the sparkle was very difficult because it is so high shine and glittery! Displayed in the picture is Jamberry - Iced & First Frost.

Once again hit up my girl Jen Mahar if you also would like to have these beauties on your nails! Click here for more information: http://jenmahar.jamberrynails.net/



Thanks for reading, and stay tuned for more looks of the day! I have lots planned ;)

Motivation Monday

Can you believe 2015 came so quickly? I'm still in shock over here! 

2014 was a great year for me but it also included a lot of stress and personal testing. I went back to school and pushed myself harder than I ever had before. It was a great feeling and it paid off in the end as I got the best marks I have ever been given. By far one of the greatest decisions I have ever made! 

I also will be starting a new job (today actually!) and am beyond excited. I will be getting back into doing what I love in the exact environment I have always said I'd like to work in. Just perfect!

This has taught me a lesson. Why wait for the good things to come to you when you can go out and make things happen for yourself? What is the difference between now and next year, or 2 years, 5 years and so on? Time spent working towards getting where you want to be and doing what you love :). Making the decision to go back to school and obtain my dream job in the last quarter of the year set my 2015 off in tthe best way possible. 



Do what you love folks! Never second guess self improvement.

Take care and I hope you have a great week!

What I'm Wearing

Today's featured look is OPI Pure Lacquer Nail Apps in Zig Zag Sparkle. 

This was my first time applying this brand of nail wraps and I am definitely pleased with the ease of application. However, the pack it comes in is a one use application, any extras will dry out and cannot be used in the future. 

A bonus to these wraps is that there is no warming required and the material is very thin and flexible compared to other brands I have tried. This product is not long wearing, it lasted one day on my nails. I think they are great for that person looking for fancy nails for a night out but plan on not wearing them long term. 

I got these as a gift so I am unsure of cost, I did do some research and found that many places online or in store sell OPI Nail Lacquer Nail Apps and the price ranges anywhere from $3-10(ish). 

I could not stop looking at my glittery nails! So pretty! 




Thanks for reading!
