Travel | Five Fabulously Fun Things to Do in St. Augustine, Florida That Are Surprisingly $10 or Less


Last week, I spent four days in St. Augustine, Florida and needless to say, I didn't want to come home.  St. Augustine, also known as the Nation's Oldest City, has been on my list of places to visit for the past few years.  Between the history, gorgeous architecture and beautiful beaches, I felt it was a place that had everything my husband and I love.  So, after deciding St. Augustine would be the perfect place for our third wedding anniversary vacation, I asked myself, "Is St. Augustine a place we could visit even on a budget?" The answer is yes!  Whether you are visiting St. Augustine, Florida with your family, your girls or even alone, there are so many things to do that are $10 or less and some are even free!

Personal Style | Going from Day to Night Fabulously with Jewelry

This post was sponsored by I was paid for this post and received jewelry pieces as compensation.


There is one thing I often preach and that is the importance of having versatile pieces in your wardrobe.  I believe in wardrobe essentials that can easily go from day to night.  I recently showed you how you can wear a maxi dress three ways, including for casual Saturdays, the office and even date night.  What is the key to making a piece work several ways?  Accessories!  Accessories can easily take a great piece from the office right to girls night out.  Today I’m teaming up with to share how I’m taking this great floral maxi dress from day to a night on the town.

Events | I Tried the New McDonald's #SignatureCrafted Menu and It's the Bomb


Remember last week when I openly professed my love for iced caramel coffee?  Making a morning stop at McDonald's for a medium iced caramel coffee is a faithful routine for me, but I realized that I rarely visit McDonald's for lunch or dinner.  All that has changed now because of the new Signature Crafted menu McDonald's recently introduced.  I'm a girl that likes options and if I'm being real, I love fancy things too.  You get both with their new menu and who doesn't love being able to create their own sandwich?  I had the opportunity to try the new menu for myself last week along with the Triad Women Bloggers Network and let's just say...  McDonald's is changing the game for fast food!

Personal Style | Smoothing and Twirling into Spring with Kohl’s Shapewear

This post is sponsored by Kohl’s.  I received the included shapewear as compensation for this post.


Spring is in full swing and I’m completely (honestly, truly) here for it.  Spring is one of my favorite seasons because it’s not too warm, tights are not required and I can overall, be comfortable.  When it comes to warmer weather, my mind automatically goes to fun dresses.  If you have been following my blog for some time, you know I’m all about a great dress.  The one thing we have not talked about on the blog, though, is shapewear.  Believe it or not, I don’t often wear shapewear.  So, when I was contacted by Kohl’s to try three types of their shapewear, I knew it would be great for not only myself, but for you all to see how it works with some of my favorite spring dresses.

It is hard to believe that just a few months ago, I was celebrating losing five pounds and going down two pant sizes.  That was huge for me!  After struggling to lose weight for years, I finally got started and it worked.  I learned so much during my weight loss journey and although my goal is to continue to lose weight and learn ways to be my healthiest, I'm thankful that I have at least been able to maintain my weight loss for the last two months.  When it all comes down to it, there are three easy ways I have learned to maintain my weight without depriving myself.
