CINCINNATI SMALL BUSINESS HOLIDAY GUIDE

I feel so lucky to live in a city with so many amazing small businesses! Unfortunately, with new lockdown restrictions in Kentucky and Ohio and COVID affecting literally everything, small businesses are having a hard time. The least all of us non-business owners can do this year is do some Christmas shopping that’s not on…

10 RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS

Things are tense. I’ve noticed how difficult it’s getting to even just have a normal conversation with a stranger. Being “socially distant” has made it hard to remember how many people are out there with the same thoughts and feelings and struggles as you. Despite being distant, we can always send a little love to…

FUN + SIMPLE WAYS TO CELEBRATE HALLOWEEN

I am so excited because Halloween is right around the corner and this time it’s on a Saturday which means the cute and spooky festivities can last all day long (for me, it’s mostly just cute). If you’re anything like me, you love celebrating and having a whole day to watch Halloween movies, make cute…

CHARLESTON, SC

Guess who is back with another travel blog for the first time in a year!? I am so excited to share with you all of the details from our trip to Charleston. Jon and I had an absolute blast and it was exactly the refresh and restart we needed after a year full of crazy….

MOVIE MOOD PLAYLIST

I was about to start this post with, “The weather is cooling down and it’s finally time to snuggle in your home and watch all the movies you can.” I very quickly realized, that’s just all of 2020. But, hey! With the changing seasons comes your desire to watch different kinds of movies. I created…

5 DATE IDEAS FOR A LOCKDOWN SUMMER

Finding creative time to spend with your significant other (or girl friends) during lockdown (partial or not) can definitely be challenging. How do we date without being able to go anywhere? For Jon and me, some of the places we have wanted to go to, we haven’t exactly felt comfortable doing so. I have put…

TRAVELING DURING COVID

We are living in the weirdest and craziest year this side of 2000 (and possibly even longer). There have been some really amazing things to come out of 2020 and one of those for me is the closeness to my family. We decided to take that to the next level by visiting some family in…

DRINKS TO REPLACE YOUR VACAY

In case you were curious, I try to plan out my “lifestyle” posts months in advance. All my plans for this summer are sideways, so we are doing something spontaneous this week and talking some fun summer drinks you can sip and pretend you’re on that summer vacation you had booked (I feel you, trust…

SUMMER MAKEUP ROUTINE

Minimal summer makeup is probably my favorite thing about this time of year. I get to let my skin breathe and a little and soak in however much sun I can get without laying out. This year, however, is a little different. I have hardly been wearing any makeup (like most other people) since March…

SUMMER BUCKET LIST: 2020 EDITION

Although where I live (and most of the country) we are now allowed to eat on restaurant patios, most of summer’s normal activities are not gonna happen. Concerts, theme parks, water parks, and pools are not open this year, as they probably should be. Because of that, summer is going to look a little bit…
