vent sesh: doing it all

doing it all // the average girl's guide

I often get, “I don’t know how you do it all.” I get this all the time.  And, while yes, I could certainly share tips how I try to accomplish the amount I do, I’m certainly not accomplishing “it all”… whatever that means.

Do you know the last time I finished a book? Embarassed. I’m half or two-thirds through quite a few. Do you know the last time I made an awesome home-cooked meal? It’s been ages. Yeah, I cook but not like I used to, and not with the fun of experimenting that I’d enjoy. Do I exercise? I’m lucky if I get it in once per week.

See what I mean? The grass is always greener. I’m envious of women who have time to make any of the dishes, decorations and DIYs they pin. Who work out at least three times per week or run miles each day. Who blow through a new book each week, and who get to spend more time with their children or spouse.

Facebook and other social media tend to give us a false impression of what the other person has going on. Read More

reason no. 7,349 why magazines rule

By  •  June 27, 2013

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and All You, but all my opinions are my own. #lifeforless #pmedia

I’m a magazine fiend. They’re these amazing publications that are tricky in that they make you feel like you’re relaxing (think multi-tasking with your mani/pedi!) yet you’re always learning the most valuable things. I love ‘zines so much I often gift them to friends… it’s like a birthday gift every month for a year. I have a handful of magazines I get each month but it’s this latest that I’ve been picking up at Publix that I’m so excited to share. Called All You, it’s so stuffed with great, resourceful content perfect for the average girl.  Instead of time-consuming in-depth features, it totally caters to a crazy girl like me who has seconds, who wants/needs to save money, get cute DIY ideas, outfit inspiration, you name it, all in one place. So when I was put on a mission to pick up the latest issue of All You to share with you some of its money and time saving tips, I had a little, jump for joy moment. It costs just $2.99 so easy to make your money back real fast. My tips, after the jump!
