Self Love


This month, many are focusing on what to give to their loved ones as a token of affection – wether you are single or in a relationship there’s always time to share the love! I’m a big purporter of self-love as well; take yourself out on date, enjoy some amazing food and pamper yourself.

Even with it sounding cliche, treating yourself and taking the time to show yourself some care is well worth it’s weight in gold. Not to mention, you’ll be amazed that others will take notice and it can honestly change your relationships with others. When you show that you care for yourself and value yourself, others will see that shining from within and their attitudes will reflect what your project.

So this Valentines,  take some time for yourself even if you have a significant other and enjoy the amazing person you are!

Here are the ways that I show myself some love:

  • Bubble bath (complete with Netflix & smelly good bubbles)
  • Painting my nails
  • Sleep in once a week
  • Exercise 4-5 times a week (even if it’s only 20 minutes!)
  • Treating myself to something sweet (I love a good piece of chocolate)
  • Watching a show that only I want to watch
  • Spending some time dreaming up business ideas and not worry about them
  • Organizing (be it my email, my craft room, social media..putting anything in order works)
  • Try a new makeup look, or take more time than normal getting ready (when my hair is looking cute, I feel so much better about myself, regardless of if I’m leaving the house or not)
  • Going to the park
  • Take a drive on a scenic route and enjoy the view
  • Actually enjoy that first cup of coffee

Hope that gives you some great ideas to get yourself started. Just for some good measure, I’ve got a cute, simple printable for you as a reminder. Use its Valentine’s decor, a phone background or anything in between:


Until next time,



Freebie Christmas Print

It’s the holiday season – and one of the best times of the year. I won’t lie, we’ve had our holiday decorations up since November 6th…but it always feel more magical once December rolls around.

We just love the way our home looks full of garland, glowing lights and pine scents wafting around. Our home feels so cozy and it’s so fun to get our family and friends together during this time.

I’ve always been a fan of the traditional holiday colors such as red, green and gold…but recently I saw some amazing decorations that included navy and I fell in love. Inspired by these colors, I made a quick print that is a little more modern than my own decor, but it will look so chic in a gold or white frame! You can get it here, or on my freebies¬†page.


Please feel free to print this and hang it up around your home, but if you share it online, link back to myself for credit.

I hope you are having a great start to your holiday and enjoy!



Let’s Taco ‘Bout It

Everyone that knows me is fully aware that I love puns. I use them at work, I send them to Chris during the day, and the worse the pun is, the harder I laugh.

I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make a quick new freebie for everyone today. Grab this free print here, or under the Digital Prints section of the blog.

This is perfect for your kitchen or bedroom!


Hope everyone’s Tuesday is filled with cheese and tacos (don’t forget the queso)!
