The Truth About Menstrual Cups

One of my new year resolutions is to be more sustainable. An Instagram influencer (@zoelaz) recently talked about her changes to become more environmentally-friendly. She mentioned using a menstrual cup and it was the push I needed to buy one and try it out. I have been wanting to replace my period pads with a cup for a while, but I had excuses about why I should wait…why I should try something else and ease my way up to it. After trying the cup (for two months), I am in love with it.

12 Things | April 2019

Happy April friends! It is crazy to think that it is April already! We are already a third of the way into 2019 and this school year is *almost* coming to an end!

I have done a couple of posts in the “12 Things” series. I think they are really fun and easy to read and a great way to catch up. I originally had another blog post scheduled to go up today all about menstrual cups. When I was editing the photos last night and this morning, I realize that I didn’t really like how they turned out. I couldn’t retake the photos today so I decided to write up this “12 Things” post 🙂

Nashville in 24(ish) Hours

About two weeks ago, I visited Nashville for spring break. On my first day of this trip, I explored the city…and I loved it! Everyone was so kind and welcoming–that Southern hospitality. I wish I was able to spend more time just exploring Nashville (but I had plans to visit other sights in the area).

On the first day, I took over 90 photos (oops!). I finally had the opportunity to go through them and pick some favorites for this post all about what I did in 24 hours.

It has seriously been a long process…but I am very excited and honored to have this opportunity to learn about another culture, meet another community, and volunteer my time and energy for a great cause.

Nashville Travel Guide

My first (of many) trips of 2019! This year was my last ever (!!!) spring break and so my family and I family decided to take a trip to Nashville. We have never been to this part of the United States before, so we were all really ecstatic!

The trip was honestly so much fun! We aren’t really country music fans so we ventured out of the Nashville area to see more of what Tennessee has to offer. It turns out that it is a beautiful state with such welcoming people!

Hello, 2019!

Well hi there! It has seriously been a minute since I’ve written on this blog but I am back now and hopefully will be posting more (fingers crossed).

I can’t believe we are already ten days into 2019! I wrote this post at the beginning of 2019 but it has taken me a while to publish it. Still, 3% into the new year, I am still so excited about this new, fresh start. There is just something exciting and motivating about the new year and the reset.

I wanted to start off the new year by sharing some of my resolutions for 2019. I know some people do not like to make resolutions for the new year but I appreciate the new start and a chance for change. I do believe that the new year is not the only opportunity to make goals though–change and the motivation to better yourself can happen at any time!
