I Hope You Fail And Here’s Why


Last November, I was gifted an Apple Watch, and the main thing I use on it is the Activity app. It tracks how active you are each day with three rings.

Move: Your personal goal of how many calories to burn.
Exercise: 30 minutes of "brisk activity."
Stand: Moving for at least one minute per hour for 12 hours of the day, to ensure you aren't sitting for more than 60 consecutive minutes.

The objective is to close each ring (AKA meet each goal) every day. This has been ingrained into my daily routine. I am always aware of it, always striving to move more to complete them (and, you know, to improve my health). Sometimes that has meant going for an evening walk or squeezing in a quick yoga session at 10 p.m. Most days, I close all three. Over the past eight-ish months, there've only been about 20 days when I haven't.

Needless to say, I hold myself to it.

My New Go-To Summer Products | FabFitFun Summer Box


It's time for my favorite part of the season: We're talkin' FabFitFun box.

I am really late to the game with this one, considering the box was delivered to me a month ago. Maybe no one's interested in these anymore. Maybe, at this point, it's overdone. Well, too bad. I honestly love this subscription so much that I'd happily talk about the products every season, so here I am to tell you all about the latest summer products. I've tried every item and regularly use all but one.

If you want to try out a box to see how you like it, you can get ten dollars off by clicking HERE, making your box only $40. You can also check out my posts on other FabFitFun boxes here.

Sunday Shares | What I've Been Loving


Hi! Wow, these last few weeks. The best of times and the worst of times. Or rather, the worst of times followed by the best of times. The bad news is that I've been spending too many extra hours grumpy at work. And that's all I'll say about that because this is a space to focus on the good stuff. And there's been so much more good stuff, especially this past week.

This Sunday Shares is coming to you a week later than usual because last Sunday I put up my very first sponsored post, which was exciting. I was so happy to have the opportunity to work with a brand that I genuinely enjoy. Because of the holiday on Wednesday, this week was a shortened work week, which I desperately needed. Plus, I had a half day on Friday. I left after lunch and spent my afternoon by the pool. It's been a great week. I'm feeling energized and motivated.

This is actually my last Sunday Shares post for a bit because I leave next week for my vacation. An Alaskan cruise, can you believe it? I'm ecstatic.

Here's what I've been loving lately:

Love At First Invite


As one of those students who loved school supply shopping, I have grown into an adult who loves stationery. I frequently buy blank cards just to have them on hand, since they can be used for any occasion. You never know when someone will need a pick-me-up in the form of a card with doughnuts on the front, right?

You can imagine my excitement when I received an email from none other than a stationery site, Basic Invite, which honestly are anything but. I could have spent hours on that site.
