How To Overcome The Pressure To Be Perfect

Y’all already know I’m a Type A perfectionist so writing a blog post about how to deal with perfectionism and the pressure to be perfect is kinda ironic.

So I guess I do actually have a lot to share.…


The Power of Learning to Accept a Compliment

Like most women reading this post, I haven’t always been comfortable (slash GOOD) at taking a compliment. I don’t know if it’s part of being female, or if it’s a personality thing, but I suck at accepting nice words face-to-face. Just the other day when leaving an industry event, the sweetest woman came up to me to shed some compliments. She was a reader of BTD (which BTW, is always…

Journeying Through The Old Testament

I’ve always wanted to read the entire Bible – from cover-to-cover. Emphasis on the *always wanted.* If I’m being honest though, it’s not something I ever thought I could actually, realistically accomplish. You know how that is, right? I sort of halfway committed a few times. I got through Genesis each time – easily. But when I would get toward the end of Exodus and into books like Numbers and…


The Best Tops to Wear With High-Waisted Bottoms

I actually can’t believe it’s taken me so long to think about writing a post about this because finding the right top to wear with anything high-waisted is SERIOUS BIZZ. The trend has been happening for a while now, but it honestly probably took me a full year to know what exactly to wear with anything high-waisted. Like, not every tank top tucks well into higher jeans or a skirt – some work, some don’t. Now that spring is here and I’m all about that high-waisted skirt life, I’ve been thinking about this even more and wanted to share my faves with y’all.

Loving on Lilac

If y’all follow me on Insta, you know I’ve been falling HARD for lilac so far this year. I mean, it’s just such a refreshing change of color from what we’ve seen the past few seasons. And I find it to be flattering and feminine but like pink’s cooler, chiller sister you know? Lulz… seriously though! I actually didn’t know that the official Pantone color of the year was something…


Why Time Management Is So Important For Success

I’m not going to pretend I’m a pro at managing my time or anything like that… and if you follow me on Insta Story this is probably obvious, but I tend to perform a heck of a lot better when I know the WHY behind things I’m doing. Some intention ya know? So what I share in this post is really going to help you get a handle on why managing your time effectively is important and what you stand to gain from it — at least that’s what learning the WHY has done for me.
