Happy Holidays! I know I’ve been pretty sparse with the blog posts lately—the craziness of the holiday season always gets the best of me. Between Christmas shopping, wrapping the gifts (in some adorable wrapping from Target), sipping hot cocoa, baking cookies with my family and friends, enjoying some homemade beauty products—I’ve been a busy girl! Here are five of my favorite things from the holidays thus far . . .

Fall is finally here and I’m so excited! I am pretty basic when it comes to this kind of stuff, but really have zero shame. I love boots, scarves, warm drinks, boots, loose fitting shirts, crispy air, stews, and snuggling while watching movies. Honestly, what is not to love about this season? Here are five things from the week that helped me start Autumn off with a bang Scarf and Rise and Shine mug  Fall golf Winter Boots and Mug Follow your dreams journal Schuett Farms in Mukwonago, WI

It’s not breaking news that I’m a fan of tea. And to be honest, I think when someone drinks more than three cups a tea a day it’s more than just liking tea–not ashamed! Tea has a lot of amazing health benefits. But all teas are not made equal. Certain teas help with certain issues you may be experiencing.

Happy Friday, beauties! What a week. I’m exhausted but so happy that it is finally Friday and I get a couple days off to be with friends and family. But even with the craziness, I still found time to enjoy the things that make me smile. Here is this week’s FIVE THINGS Well, everyone was telling me it’s time for a new phone cover. And I think this one fits me pretty well! 😉 I’m just here for the fortune cookie compliments, “The mysterious side of your nature makes you

Snowshoe Baseball is one of those terms that is flown around our family since I was born–but when we talk about it with other people we can count on getting some strange looks and a lot of questions. So if you aren’t familiar with this game, I’ll give you the quick breakdown! Snowshoe baseball is softball that is played wearing snowshoes and no gloves. In 1961 Lake Tomahawk Town Chairman, Ray Sloan, decided that he wanted to bring another source of entertainment to the small town for tourists and residents

It’s not a trip Up North without catching a keeper or two. Northern Wisconsin has some of the best fishing–Musky, perch, walleye, trout, panfish, smallmouth and largemouth bass, we have it all. This wasn’t our craziest round fishing, as we only caught about 3 fish that were actually worth keeping, it was still a great time on the water with my family.

I’m sure you’ve heard of several types of cleanses: juicing, herbal detoxes, fruit and veggie cleanses, the list goes on. But what about a social cleanse? After going through a few ups and down with relationships, friendships, and my career over the years—I finally realized that I have a significant amount of say in the people I let in and out of my life. After years of associating with toxic people, I decided it was time for a mortal cleanse—sounds like something out of a horror movie but trust me,

There are some things you just can’t get in the city. Ever since I was little I considered Up North as my little piece of paradise. I love being by the water and surrounded by woods/nature. It’s so peaceful and the scenery is impeccable. So every year my family takes a week-long vacation up to our lake house; and each time it gets harder and harder to go back to the city. And of course with such a picturesque getaway, I had to snap a ton of photos! These are

I fed a bear, took a selfie with a zebra, pet a giant tortoise, got my purse chewed by a baby goat, hung out with a bunch of deer, and a giraffe tried to make out with me—I’d say it was a pretty epic day at Wildwood Wildlife Park in Minocqua, WI. Growing up we knew it as “Jim Peck’s”—the place where you can go up to domesticated deer and literally just hangout with them. But things have changed a lot since I was a little one! They now have
