weekly wishes 001


Inspired by Coley's Weekly Wishes, I have decided to start making weekly (public) goals for myself. It's really great to have New Year's resolutions that you can focus on during the year but breaking down your goals to weekly just seems easier to accomplish. And making them public makes me more accountable!

My goals for this week (which are mostly blogging related):

1. I have a giveaway planned! So my first goal is to get the giveaway post this week. I'm super excited for it! I hope you are too!

2. & I want to start scheduling my blogposts into a calendar. I think giving my posts a due date will make me less lazy :)

So this week I am starting two weekly posts. Weekly Wishes will be posted on Sundays & I am starting a new series called #throwbackthursday to Vlogmas 2014! Apparently I did have enough footage to participate in Vlogmas. I figured instead of letting the footage just sit there, I would post my Vlogmas vlogs on Thursdays! It will be Christmas in February. (I didn't do too much Christmassy stuff anyway, so they won't look that different from normal vlogs.) I really enjoy vlogging so I appreciate you all watching!

So I'm hoping for a productive week. I hope yours is, too! What are your goals for the week?

chief chloe's vegan donuts

You guuuuys. I made vegan donuts. These are so easy & delicious. Really simple ingredients that you bake together for a healthier donut! 

This is Chloe Coscarelli's recipe. My friend Caitlin made them once from her dessert cookbook, but Chloe offers the recipe for free on YouTube

Let me know if you make some!

european cities we're visiting!


On March 10th, my boyfriend and I will be traveling to London to begin our European backpacking trip. We've been saving and planning for years and are super excited to say the least. 

One thing that I LOVE about blogging/social media is the availability to chat with people all over the world. So that's where you come in! It would be so helpful if I could get any tips, tricks, advance from any of you. Whether you've traveled to any of the cities below, or if you live there! The likelihood of us traveling to cities other than the ones listed below is high, so if you have any other suggestions of places to visit, please share. I really appreciate your feedback!

warby parker home try on

Ripley in Whiskey Tortoise // Ames in Whiskey Tortoise // Burke in Tennessee Whiskey // Keene in Amaretto
I need new glasses! It's been around 10 years of the same prescription but it has now changed slightly. It was pretty convenient not having to change my glasses too much, but now is the time. 

Warby Parker is the first place I look when I need new glasses. They have three features that really draw me to their company. 

1. For every pair of glasses purchased, another pair is donated to a person in need.
2. All of the frames are affordable! I bought my first pair for $99 and I've seen some for $145.
3. & lastly, they offer home try on for their frames. They have storefronts but there aren't very many so they let customers order frames to try on at home FOR FREEEE. 

You get to pick out 5 frames to try on & above are the frames I choose (minus Talbot in Whiskey Tortoise, which is fine because meh). What do you think?! I think I've made my decision with the Ripley's in Whiskey Tortoise. Do you like them?

But yes, if you're ever in the need to glasses, make your way to Warby Parker's website 
& take a look around!
