Why I Often Write About Menial Things

IMG_1822IMG_1773 IMG_1790 IMG_1802IMG_1827 IMG_1830

I have a lot of feelings in my heart, but have NO idea what I’m going to write about this post. So I figured, I’ll just start and see where this takes me.

First of all, I’ve been thinking about my writing on my blog. Since I launched this blog about 5 months ago, I have written/posted about menial things such as makeup, cute clothes, fun brands, new hairstyles, etc. I write about these things NOT because I have a lack of personality or lack of opinions on things going on in the world and NOT because I haven’t experienced any hardship in my life. Quite the contrary, actually.

However, I like writing about stupid, little things because stupid, little things make me happy…and hopefully you, as the reader, may find some joy and beauty in these things as well.

I definitely want to start weaving some deeper thoughts and feelings into my site to give it depth and more meaning, but I don’t want to stop posting about the little things in life. Things like finding a $5 liquid matte lipstick, perfect sunny weather, the yummiest acai bowl place that I found, pretty flowers, the donut hat I just made, my soft, new dress, etc. Yeah- I recognize those things are little and stupid, but HELLO, those things are totally fun and bring joy to me. And isn’t that why we were created? To have joy?

The more I notice these seemingly insignificant details that bring me happiness, the closer I feel to God.

And although I’m not always writing about the things that are most important to me in every post, I hope by reading along, you, too, can feel closer to Him.

If you have little things that bring you joy, please share in the comments below! I would love to hear.

Okay. My flowers were PERFECT thanks to Bloomers & my talented mother-in-law, Heather Blair. I wish I had that bouquet always to carry around.

My bouquet had the following beauties:

  • Peonies
  • Ranunculus
  • Seeded Eucalyptus
  • Cabbage roses
  • Sweet pea
  • Snap dragons
  • Heather
  • Israeli Ruscus

Also, Heather surprised my bridesmaids with bouquets she made as well. She kind of knows her stuff. They were in awe of how beautiful they were and they smelled amazing. I loved all the different shades of pink!

I had this vision in my head of what I wanted, but couldn’t think of any of the names of the flowers for the life of me! Yet somehow, they turned out perfectly. I’ve always loved flowers, and the first picture I ever remember taking was of flowers. So yes! Thank you Bloomers and thank you Heather for making me the most beautiful bouquets in all the land.

I hope you love them as much as I did.

Pink Blush


So I just got this puppy ? in the mail, and it is the prettiest/comfiest dress I have ever seen! I got it from Pink Blush. I originally thought that they just had maternity dresses, but I quickly learned that that is not the case at all!

Pink Blush has the cutest women’s line, too. Plus, this dress is so silky that it feels amazing. ? So…don’t mind me, I’ll just be swishing around in my dress all day.

Also, I was talking to my sister-in-law yesterday, who recently had a baby. She was telling me that she’s purchased maternity clothes from here that she has loved wearing. Check this amazing place out! You’ll probably love it as much as I do.

PS. I saw that there were thousands of back-to-school posts this morning, so good luck on everyone’s first day!
