What I’ve Learned in 2017 and Goals for 2018

As I look back on 2017 I see how much I’ve grown as a person, the challenges I’ve overcome and the lessons I’ve learned. I love the end of the year because I get to sit down and reflect on anything and everything that went on in the past year. As I sit here writing, I feel so…

Cable Knits and Leather Leggings

This winter, leather leggings are a staple in my wardrobe. They look great with a chunky sweater or a soft tee and a cardigan. I love wearing leggings as much as possible, so these are the perfect way to look put together without sacrificing the comfort of normal leggings. I love this cable knit sweater…

Simple Paleo Banana Bread

For the last couple of weeks I’ve been craving blueberry muffins. So after eating plenty of blueberry muffins, scones, bars and pretty much everything else I could make with blueberries, I think I’ve moved on to a new love of banana bread (but let’s be honest, I’m still obsessed with blueberry muffins lol). I was looking…

Ringing in the New Year

I can hardly believe there are less than three weeks left before New Year. This year has flown by once again, and I have a lot to be thankful for (including starting this blog)!  Whether you’re planning on going out or staying in with friends this New Year’s Eve, a sparkling outfit is always a must have. I look forward to dressing up…

What to do when you Feel Unproductive

Hey y’all, I wanted to catch up with you on what’s going on in my life this week and just chat. I’m currently knee deep in exam week and I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed. But I’m hanging in there because I only have a pre-calc and AP psychology exam left! Trying to study for exams and…

What I Learned From Memorizing Matthew 6:25-27

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather…

The Perfect Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookie

One of my favorite things about the holidays is baking cookies on Christmas Eve with my family. For as long as I can remember we’ve gone skiing for Christmas. And although this meant we had to wait to open our presents until we got back home, my sister and I loved waking up to white Christmases and the smell of…

The Perfect Stocking Stuffers for her

I have always enjoyed giving gifts, rather than receiving them. There is just something about watching your friend or family member’s expression that never gets old. To this day, I still make a checklist of things I see while shopping that I know my friends would love, and struggle with funding my gift giving obsession (lol).…

  • Found the cutest black sweater and it's on sale! This morning I went to Church with a good friend and got brunch afterwards! I'm about to go take some blog photos and then hopefully do some meal prep for the week! I love meal prepping because it helps me have quick options to snack on and makes me more likely to eat in rather than be tempted to go out. Especially during Whole30 meal prep has been a life saver! What do you do on Sunday's to make your week easier? (Ps: remember you can now shop my Instagram on the blog!)
  • The cutest sweatshirt dress under $35!! Y'all today I finally finished (well almost) the new blog! After being tired of the way my blog looked I decided to give it a makeover! Now you can shop my Instagram including this dress! So go take a look, and tell me what y'all think!
  • Hands up for snow days!! Yesterday we got almost a foot of snow which is incredibly unusual for Raleigh! I've been curled up on the couch by our fireplace, watching Hulu and working on the blog! I need a good show to binge on Netflix or Hulu, what's your favorite? (Also the blog may or may not be getting a major facelift!)
  • I feel like I haven't gotten to introduce myself, I'm Sasha! I love Jesus and sharing the gospel. I really want to like reading but I don't unless I'm at the beach with a mojito, or reading my bible with a highlighter and pen. I love breakfast, and poached eggs are my go to at brunch! But my eyes are always bigger than my stomach and I probably change my order about five times because I'm so indecisive. I'm a perfectionist at heart, I try to do everything and I mean everything (high school, jewelry business, blog, youth group three times a week, and a job) until I'm exhausted. I love learning unless it's physics, then I'm just confused. But I love math and solving problems. I am constantly trying to prove myself to myself, and make it a game to see how much I can accomplish in a day. I am a creature of habit, I go to the same coffee shop at least three times a week and I've made friends with all the baristas lol. I'm an introverted extrovert and love talking (a lot)! I love traveling and dream of moving somewhere like London or New York. Oh and I'm a twin (it's so much fun)! Ps: this outfit is all linked in today's blog post, so go give it a read!
  • Finally got a pair of leopard loafers and I'm obsessed! They're so comfy and look amazing! Tomorrow we're supposed to get 3-5 inches of snow, it may not sound like much, but for NC that means school will be canceled for a few days! Super excited to curl up on the couch, watch KUWTK and drink some hot chocolate!😆 What are your favorite things to do on snow days?
  • Yesterday I did the first part of my driving for drivers ed, luckily he only had to use his brakes a couple of times🙈 Not sure how I feel about driving yet but I have another class later today. Do you guys like driving, or would you rather have your friend drive?
  • Happy Friday Eve! I'm so excited about the long weekend ahead! This week was my first full week back at school and it's been pretty hard adjusting back from having so much free time. But I'm also kinda loving it because I'm sort of in my element when I have a bunch of stuff to do, all about the #hustle lol! I wanted to share a few thoughts on our identity. So last week I applied to a style company for a space in their influencer community. And today I saw an email in my inbox and my stomach dropped to the floor. I had a hunch when I applied that I didn't have a very high chance to get in, but thought what's the worst thing that can happen, they say no and I move on and try again later down the road. But for some reason all afternoon there's been a weight on my chest and a voice in my head saying I'm not good enough! And holy moly, that's so far from the truth. You see our identity is in Jesus, who says we are enough! And at times it can be hard to remember when things you had such high hopes for fall through. I keep reminding myself of Genesis 1:27 and Isaiah 25:1. It's so easy to lose sight of what God has planned for your life by little moments that take away your attention from the big picture. Whatever challenge, rejection, or pain you're facing, Jesus is so much bigger than it and so is his plan for you! (Ps: this sweater is on major sale, linked on the blog)
  • Currently dreaming of being somewhere warm. I feel like once January roles around I'm done with winter and ready for spring dresses and cute sandals (anyone else?) But until then this fur vest is great to stay cozy in the winter weather! My favorite way to style it is, with a pair of jeans, riding boots, a white sweater and gold hoops!
  • I think I'm pretty late on the otk boot trend, but since I've got these I've been wearing them everywhere! These were the only shoes I wore on my trip to Paris and they were surprisingly comfortable for walking around Paris all day. I'm currently lusting over the Stuart Weitzman pair, but if you're not wanting to splurge these are the perfect option!
