    Hey everyone! I am so excited to share this new video with ya’ll. For my 30th birthday my family gifted me with a new Louis Vuitton bag.

There were so many choices but luckily I had a great sale associate and my wonderful husband there to help me pick out the perfect bag for me. I knew I wanted a luxury bag that I could use daily. Check out the unboxing video and the blog post below to see what bag I got, and also what I did to protect and prep my new Louis Vuitton bag.

    Welcome to the Next Chapter – Thirty and Thriving

    Today I officially turn thirty: Thirty and Thriving. I can’t believe how time flies. Never in a million years I would have imagined this is where my life would be. I never thought I would find a man who treats me like a Queen, or be a mom to the most wonderful little human in the world, and best yet to be able to pursue my dreams through blogging. In fact I didn’t even know what blogging was when I started this site. I started merely as a new mom trying to document and capture every moment of my new bundle of joy and the journey of motherhood. But today, three years later it has become so much more. I am beyond blessed in every way to be where I am today, to be surrounded by the most loving family and friends, and to be able to share this little passion project of mine and inspire others to be the best version of themselves. After a year of delving in the YouTube world and sharing little successes on the way, I am finally ready to tell my story. I hope you take the time to watch this three-minute video, and it would mean so much if you subscribed to my channel. My goal is to reach a thousand subscribers this year. Please help me make my dream come true. Thank you so much for following along with me on this journey and welcome to the next chapter. Read more of what I look forward to in my 30’s and never before seen family photos below!

Today I’m sharing a fun post with my hottie of a hubby, and talking about our fitness goals and the benefits of working out with your significant other! Y’all what if I told you I fell in love with my husband at the gym. In fact I’m sure it was spotting him at the squat rack that I thought, man look at that butt. Haha, but for real though, my hubby get’s it from his mama! Plus I like having something extra to hold on to back there. Ok I’m going to stop before I embarrass my husband even more, but aside from enjoying a good view of his backside when we work out, here are six reasons why I love working out with my hubby, and the benefits of working out with your significant other.

    Happy Monday everyone! Hope everyone had a great weekend! Today I teamed up with Zappos X Easy Spirit to share my tips on dressing for success, tips I shared as a guest speaker for Phi Mu Fraternity at Houston Baptist last week. As a Phi Mu alumna I loved being able to connect with all the wonderful Phi Mu ladies and hopefully inspire them to be the best version of themselves. I remember my college days and the uncertainty that comes with trying to figure out who you are, what to study, and what you wanted to do after college. Dressing for success may not be a college course I took, but it was a valuable lesson I learned being part of Phi Mu. To this day it has been an integral part in what I do today as a lifestyle blogger. Check out my tips on dressing for success and how it keeps me moving and striving for my goals.
