BTD Q2 Playlist

Wanted to pop in to quickly share the BTD Q2 Playlist with y’all! I get a lot of questions about what I’m listening to while working or on my long Brighton walks, so this list is more catered to that. I’ll try to get better about sharing the songs I’m listening to daily on Insta Stories (or BTD DAILY), but for now, hope you love this playlist! If y’all have…

15 Signs You Feel Pressure to Be Perfect

Do you feel pressure to be perfect? I feel like there are those who immediately say YES and then there are those who are like…hmm I’m not sure. Well, the thing is, I think the perfectionism complex is actually holding a lot of us back without us even realizing it. I’ve been totally into this topic lately as I’ve been battling some of these things on my own – figuring out ways to overcome it. In today’s post, I’m sharing 15 signs that identify whether or not the pressure to be perfect is maybe holding you back (or playing mind games with you!).

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…

What Are Your God-Given Gifts?

In the book of 1 Corinthians, Paul talks a lot about giftedness in chapter 12.  He explains that our gifts need to be different because all together, we make up the body of Christ. For a body to work, you need one head, two ears, one nose, two arms… you get the picture. If a body has no arms, six noses, and one ear, something’s not right. The same thing goes for the body of believers in Christ—there have to be different parts in order to make it function correctly.

How to Spring Clean Your Entire Life

Since I’ve been feeling pretty naturally motivated lately, I’m taking advantage of that energy while looking at multiple aspects of my life when it comes to tidying things up. Sure, my pantry needs love, as does my closet, but what about the other parts of my life? Like relationships, work, family, etc. There’s definitely more I’ve been itching to clean up or dive into other than physically cleaning

Thoughts on Good Friday

For a lot of us, the coming of Easter means all good things. Warmer weather, spring clothes, pastels, sunshine, bunnies, and egg hunts are the things that we think of most if we’re really being honest. And we know what Easter is really all about: Jesus. It’s the day that Jesus arose from the dead and redeemed us all from our sins. And YES, Easter is a really, really happy day.

How to Actually Learn From the Info We Consume

What I’m writing about today actually has me fired up and I’ve been SUPER excited to share this post. Does that make me a #nerd? Anyways, it’s something I think about often – how much I consume information and don’t necessarily let it sink it. Sure, I’ll learn some stuff, but am I really utilizing that information I just consumed as much as possible? Usually not. Unless I journal hardcore…

I love all the spring vibes happening and fun pieces to shop, but let’s be real, it’s still pretty freaking cold out. At least in Dallas!

Wardrobe Essential: The Black Blazer

I’ve been purging my closet a bit lately and all this paring down has me thinking about which items in my closet I wear the most.
