casual night out

The funny part of me being a fashion blogger is that 75% percent of my wardrobe is workout clothes, sweatshirts, leggings and sweatpants. While I can get away with it during the week, when going to restaurants on the weekends I need to look somewhat presentable. If you have the same problem I do pair long leggings with ankle booties for a complete look. Oversized sweaters, chunky scarfs, and colored purses are the perfect way to pull together an outfit in the winter. Happy Saturday!! xoxo

Mobile Massage




Our massage therapist from TherapyProfessionals arrived at our apt building on time and with all of her equipment ready to go. My Fiance and I decided to do a "split" couples massage where she did 45 minutes on one of us, and 45 minutes on the other. I liked my massage low pressure, while he liked his with strong pressure. She designed each of our massages to target our specific needs, problem areas, and  created the appropriate plan to release as much stress and tension while increasing circulation. We absolutely loved her, and it was so relaxing having this spa treatment done in the privacy of our own home. TherapyProfessionals comes to you to do onsite massage therapy. They will bring a fully equipped massage treatment bed to your home, work place, private event, or location of your choice. TherapyProfessionals replicate the spa experience by bringing their organic line of Biotin oils for the massage, as well as playing "spa" music off Pandora. You forget you are in the privacy of your own home because they replicate the spa experience so perfectly. 

They cater to corporations, McCormick Convention center, hotels, health clubs, and the individual. While their main concentration is mobile chair massages, they do provide 60-90 minute individual massages. It is such a great "reward" at the workplace for hard working employees, as well as a tension, headache, and stress reliever. Check out TherapyProfessional's info at the bottom of this post! Don't miss out on this!

advice to give your friend, child, sister, etc. going through a breakup

1. Don't unfollow them on instagram, block them on facebook, and talk shit about their new girl (or boy) All those things will reflect poorly on you, not them.

2. Don't make up stories in your head based off social media. I know all girls at one point or another have made up full fledged stories in their head based off "likes" or posts on social media. The hard thing is, that a lot of times those crazy, far off assumptions have been right, but it will drive you crazy. As hard as it is, do not let them sit on social media making up stories about the guy that just broke up with them.

3. Remind them that just because someone isn't blowing up their phone, sending flowers, or standing outside their porch, doesn't mean that they aren't thinking about them also.

4. Encourage them to go get dressed, go out, and start making new memories out in the world. It's not easy to get over someone sitting in your house crying about them every night. Take your friend out to dinner, the movies, to see Christmas lights, etc.

5. Any texts, emails, or phone calls you think are a great idea to send should be sat on for at least 24 hours. If you have a text ready to go, tell yourself "okay I can send this text at this time tomorrow." 99 times out 100 twenty four hours later (most of the time just a few hours later) you will literally say WTF was I thinking that I was going to send that, and you will be thrilled that you didn't. Spare yourself the embarrassment and regret by not making irrational and spur of the moment decisions.

6. Don't let them makes excuses for this person.

7. Tell them they can only talk to one or two people about this. If they spread it too far it will get back to him/her and their new significant other.

8. They need to stop talking to them regularly (at least for a period of time). What people don't realize, is by them having any sort of contact with their ex they are giving them all they need to not fully miss them. The fact that they can still get a response out of you, is enough to let them think that they still have you hanging around whenever they want you.

9. Be careful the horrible things you say about your ex when you break up. If you get back together, you may forgive them, but after these things you've let out of the bag...your dad, brother, and best friend may not...

10. Everything happens for a reason. It could take you a week, a month, or two years to see that, but there WILL 100% be a day where you finally understand why everything bad that happened did, and how it brought you to all the good things you now have in your life.
