Would you just look at how cute this swell bottle is? WOULD YA JUST LOOK AT IT!? This bottle is freaking adorable (they also have many other colors and designs) & keeps things cold for 24 hrs and hot for 12 hrs. I carry this bottle around with me everywhere. Did you know that drinking out of plastic water bottles is not the best thing? I didn’t know until recently. I was reading an article about it and was amazed at the facts. If the plastic water bottle you have in your hand right now has been sitting in the heat – it’s best to put it down.

“Bottled water companies increasingly use BPA-free plastic, but laced into plastic bottles are other chemicals that can seep out if bottles are exposed to heat or sit around for a long time. Some of these chemicals are possible endocrine disruptors.”

No thank you. I’ll stick to my swell bottle which keeps my liquids at the perfect temperature all day!

Happy New Year!

I honestly never make New Years Resolutions. Why? Because after the first week of January, I always break the resolution. This year I decided to make some and stick with them and I have a feeling this year is going to be the best year yet.

2017 Resolutions:

  1. Push myself to be the best I can be.
  2. Tithe regularly.
  3. Stop being lazy.
  4. Help others.
  5. Host more giveaways for my blog.

Funny story. This morning I was tired and I went to bed late last night because of New Years. I didn’t want to get out of bed, but I said “Self, one of your New Years resolutions is to stop being lazy. You need to get up and get ready for church.” So that’s exactly what I did. I got up, ate breakfast, got ready, and headed to church. When I got to church, I noticed that there were no cars in the parking lot. I was confused and then remembered two weeks ago the pastor said, “We will not be having service on Christmas Day and New Years Day. Enjoy time with your family!” I couldn’t believe it, but I was proud of myself for getting up and not breaking my resolution on January 1st!

Do you have any resolutions for 2017?

My go to OOTD + Giveaway

The weather here has been INSANE. It was 75 degrees one day and below 30 the next morning with ice. Like what?!?

Anyways, I’ve been looking for a pair of ankle boots that I can wear with just about anything. Something neutral – with a low heel (because I’m like 5 11) and something inexpensive. Whether I want to dress up or be casual, the next pair of boots that I purchased needed to fit these expectations. As I was Christmas shopping, I found a pair that I fell in love with! I went down my checklist and they were just perfect. Not only are these my new favorite pair of boots, but this whole outfit is my go to look. It’s comfortable enough to run errands in and dressy enough to go out in. Comfy and cute are my two favorite words. 🙂
