During the fall everything seems to get a cozy vibe and for me that even goes for the music that I listen to. To me there is nothing better than putting on some relaxing song and get lost in a book on a lazy Saturday afternoon. I put this playlist together about a year ago and I am always adding new song to it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Does your music taste change with the season or do you listen to the same style all year round?
Fall is almost here and it is my favorite time of the year. I just love how the vibrant the leaves are, the crispness of the air and just how everything becomes so cozy. I really could write a whole blog post on why I love fall but I will save that for another time. I thought that I would share with you my fall to do list for this year.
– Decorate for fall.
– Bake. Bake and Bake some more.
-Have lunch with my Best Friend.
– Visit my sister and her family in Maryland.
– Go for a fall hike.
-Read the 5 Books that I just picked up.
-Have a movie Marathon.
– Go to a Farmer Market.
– Hit up some fall festivals.
What are you looking forward to doing this fall?

As of late, I have been listening to podcasts non-stop. I have always enjoyed listening to them as a great alternative to music but lately, it’s like I cannot get enough of them. They have quickly become an obsession for me. I love listening to them on my drive to work in the morning to help get my mind rolling for the day ahead or while relaxing in the bath to unwind from the day. Here are three podcasts that I have not been able to stop listening to lately.
If you are a fan of things that are unusual or that cannot be fully be explained then this is the perfect podcast for you. The way that the stories are told is done in a beautifully poetic and intriguing way that keeps your mind turning long after the episode has finished. It is the perfect blend of history and the unexplained that intertwined perfectly with each other. The mystery of the Eilean Mòr Lighthouse Keepers that is in episode 8, When the Light Fades is the one story that I have found the most intriguing of all the episodes that I have listening to so far. Listen to Unexplained Here.
Great Women of Business
This is a fairly new podcast that had come out and I am quite happy that I had come across it early this month. There is only six episode out so far but I have loved them all. During each episode, the hosts talk about the women who have revolutionized the industry that they are famous for. The hosts break down these women life stories and show how their choices that they made had an affected on their business. They start off with a bang with Coco Chanel, and I learned a lot of things about Ms. Chanel that I had never know before. I found this podcast quite inspiring and empowering, it is defiantly worth a listen. Listen to Great Women of BusinessHere.
At Home With…
Two of my favorite Youtuber Anna Newton and Lily Pebble are behind this fabulous podcast. These two lovely ladies go and interview women that they admire in their homes. I really like how laid back the interview style. You feel like you are sitting around with a group of friends just having a conversation. I really find myself being truly inspired by hearing these women stories of how they became a kick-ass trailblazer in their respected industries. Listen to At Home With … Here
I am always looking for a new podcast to check out if you have any recommendation please let me know. I would love to go check them out.

Holy cow I can not believe that we are in March already! February was a tough month for me, and I am so ready for the fresh start that a new month gives you. I am already looking to this month because I have a lot planned for this blog and super excited to go visit my sister at the end of the month for easter. For March a lot of my goals are based around my blog with some personal goals, also.
– Workout four days a week.
– Post 15 blog post this month
– Get over 300 views on my blog in one month
– Grow my Instagram page.
– Comment more on other blogs
– Connet with other bloggers
– Stick to my schedule
What are you looking forward to this March?
Hi guys! It has been a little while since I have posted on my blog and as much as I wanted to spent February putting a lot a work into it. Life likes to remind us that sometimes it does not always go as we would like it to go. At the beginning of February, my Grandpa got sick and had to go into the hospital. He did get a little better and was able to go home.
The following week he took a turn for the worst and had to go back into the hospital. As the days went on he got a lot worst and we all knew that it would not be long until he would pass away. Then on February 12th, my grandpa passed away.
I ended up taking off work for the rest of the work to help my mom with the funeral and anything else that she needed help with. At the funeral, I spoke about my grandpa’s life and his love of ice cream. I truly felt honored to speak about my grandpa’s life and his love for his family. I feel very privileged to have been his granddaughter.
After what seemed like some of the longest weeks of my life, it reminded me that life is short. You have to work hard to make your dreams come true and you can’t just sit around wishing that they will happen. It takes a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to make it happen.
I just wanted to let you guys know what was going on in my life and why I had not been posting like I said I would in my February goals. However, in the last few days, I have been working on some blog posts that will be coming out very soon. I am ready to make this blog the best that it can be.
What kinda of posts would you like to see more of?
Hello, February! I am over the moon that February is here, I swear January is the longest month of the whole year! This year January seemed extra long for me as I was sick for almost all of it. So as I am starting to get back to my healthy self I want to get back on track with the goals that I have set myself for the new year. While also working on my big goals, I like to set myself some small goals for the month ahead. On a side note isn’t crazy that there is now only 11 more months in 2018!?!? So here are my goals for February…
– Workout three or four times a week
– Post two blog post a week
– Find some new podcast to listen too
– Pack my lunch 4 out of the 5 days at work
– Plan out my blog post for March
– Try something new
– Find a new book to read ( Any suggestion?)
– Start planning a solo trip
– Drink more water
– Use my bullet journal more
What are you most looking forward to this month?
Happy New Year!!! It’s 2018!! I can not believe that it is a new year already, 2017 definitely went by a lot faster than I realized it did. Last year was not a great year for me but it was by no means a horrible year either. However, I am truly ready for the new year and the fresh beginning that it gives us all . Like most people, I like to set myself goals for the new year and this year I wanted to make sure that I keep the goals that I have set myself. This year I have four goals that I want to accomplish by the end of this year. Here are my goals for this year:
Being Overall Healthy
This is probably the one of the goals that almost everyone has on this new year’s goals. I really want to focus on being a healthy person this year. I want to get better at a workout schedule and sticking with it. Also, I want to be healthier with my mind. I want to make sure that I am not putting it on the back burner and taking the time to make mind healthier.
Be Money Smart
I want to take this year to learn about how to invest my money and to start really saving for things that I would like to buy in the future. I want to be building credit, making smart moves with my money and not spending it on silly things. I want to set a budget myself so that I can monitor my spending habits and start building a saving.
Be More Adventurous
This goal is the one goal that I want to make sure that no matter want happens I will make it happen. I have quite a few places on my bucket list that I would like to check off this year. I want to try a new hobby, meet new people, try new food and maybe even live in a new city. I am tired of being afraid of living safely anymore. I want to live the life that I have been dreaming of and I can’t do that if I don’t take a leap of faith. I am more than ready than I will ever be. I really can’t wait to see where I will go or who I will meet or what I will try.
If you don’t know me I can be very disorganized and be okay with it. However, I really want to try to be as organized as I can be this year. I feel that this will let me be more creative. I also want to be organized with my planner and use it. I am notorious for buying a planner and only using it for a few days. This year will be the year of organizing for me.
Who knows what 2018 will hold but I am very excited for it !
What goals do you have for 2018?
Nothing beats a rainy, fall day with lit candles sprinkled around the room, with a cozy playlist on, reading a great new book. Music can put the finishing touch to any atmosphere that you want to create. I put together a playlist of songs that I feel that creates a cozy vibe, so whenever I put it on I can feel cozy.
The title of my playlist is A Cozy Fall Vibe and you can find on Spotify here.
Do you have a cozy fall playlist or music you only play during fall?
