Stop Settling for Less Than You Deserve

Hey y'all!

After graduating in December, the most common thing I have been asked is "so what are your plans now?" And to that I typically answer with "I'm not sure, I'm looking, but I also have a feeling that the right job will come along and fall into my lap." Some people meet that with a smile and tell me how great and optimistic I am. Other people meet it with a grimace and say "Oh, well it's okay to just get a job and get some more experience".

And while that may be optimal for their life, it's not mine. It's so easy to fall into a routine, but I'm here to tell you that you need to stop settling for less than you deserve. I'm a big believer that the universe is always listening and watching. Sounds a little creepy, but we were totally down for it when Santa was involved. If you don't like the term ~the universe~, I'm also a big believer that God, the Universe, Source Energy, and all that higher power lingo is synonymous. For the sake of this post, I'm using the term universe. Get it? Got it? Good.

How to Create a Vision Board to Help You Live Your Dream Life

Hey y'all!

A new year means new goals!! I have BIG plans for my 2019, and I hope you do too! My mantra for 2018 was to grow and be happy. I really like to think that, although it was vague, I did a great job of exploring things that interested me as well as letting go of things that were not meant for me.

I spent this weekend planning out a vision board for this new year, and I thought it would be the perfect time to share with you exactly how a vision board can help you live your dream life!

Easy Vegan Chocolate Fudge Brownies

Hey y'all!

Looking for the perfect sweet treat to take with you to all the ugly sweater parties this holiday season? I've got you covered! These brownies have one of my fave ingredients ever -- Chia seeds! They're actually one of the healthiest foods on the planet. These tiny seeds are full of nutrients, antioxidants, and fiber! They mix right into the batter so you don't have to feel guilty eating one or two slices ;)

Let me also add that in no way am I a food blogger. Honestly, food photography is one of the hardest things for me. I'm the type to slap something on a plate and dig in. So don't mind my photos, I promise that these brownies are full of all sorts of ooey-gooey deliciousness!

15 Eco-Friendly Gifts for Under $15

Hey y'all!

Who doesn't want to help save the world? I know that we all try to do our best to recycle and skip out on the plastic straws, but why not #treatyoself (or your friends and family) this holiday season to something a little more bojuee.

Don't worry, I'm not about to ask you to only wear clothing made of hemp. Instead, just make a few tiny switches here and there to maybe use a little less plastic in your life. You'll be surprised at how simple it is!

Did you know that one plastic straw can take up to 200 years to decompose? So imagine all of the straws that you've ever used in your entire life. Not even the first one you've ever used has decomposed yet. It really does make you think about what you're using and the impact you have on the planet -- even after you're gone.
