Three Reasons I’ve Started a Capsule Wardrobe

 I have a small closet – and a husband to share it with. After months of struggling to find clothes amongst the clutter, I’ve decided to start a capsule wardrobe. There are lots of reasons to start a capsule wardrobe, including the ease of locating items in a small closet and the amount of time it takes to choose an outfit (hint: it’s a lot less!), but I’ve got unique reasons for starting mine. Keep reading to discover the three reasons I’ve started a capsule wardrobe.

Packing for an Alaskan Cruise

Each summer Adam and I plan at least one epic trip. Last year, we went to St. Lucia, where we got married, and then took a cruise around the Mediterranean with Seabourn. Both trips were amazing and I can't wait to head back to both destinations. However,...

Five of the Best Fashion Influencers

Fashion isn't just about the clothes that we purchase or the designers that we prefer. It isn't just about the outfits or the photos of those outfits that we share online. It's not about whether we have a small or a large closet - or a small or large...

Three Reasons to Wear ba&sh

When I rent items from Rent the Runway, I never know how the clothes will fit me. I’m pretty petite; I’m five foot one and wear a zero or double zero, depending on the brand or the type of item, and feel as though my legs are quite short. Some items that arrive are too big in the waist or too long – but whenever I order an item from ba&sh, it fits perfectly. I would definitely recommend their clothing (for those that are willing to splurge on their gorgeous designs) and here are three reasons to wear ba&sh.

Five Things to do when Visiting Epcot

Epcot is a favorite theme park of mine. Visit places without spending cash on flights, hotels, and more; taste food that's reminiscent of the local food; and see replicas of some of the famous sights. What's even more famous is the ever-popular drink...

Five Reasons to Choose Seabourn

Adam and I tend to book one long trip in the summertime. This year, we’re choosing to board an Alaskan cruise. The cruise line that we use (and will continue to use – prob. forever!) is Seabourn. Adam and I booked our previous Seabourn cruise last summer. This cruise went around the Mediterranean and it was sooo beautiful. Obviously, Adam and I loved our first Seabourn cruise, because we’re back at it – and prepped to board the Seabourn Sojourn in late June, which is why I’ll be telling you five reasons to choose Seabourn.

Overnight Oats

Oh man ladies and gents (but prob ladies!) I’ve just tried some overnight oats. And it all started with a Quaker experiment…ok, it wasn’t exactly an experiment. Long story short, I saw the Quaker Overnight Oats sitting on the shelf, waiting for me to see them (the oats were above my head so I never noticed them before – haha!). I took them home, along with a container of almond milk and prepped Adam with an if-we-like-these-I’m-going-to-make-a-recipe speech.

Capsule Wardrobe Essentials

I’ve been working through the kinks of this capsule wardrobe over the past few weeks and, even though it’s not quite perfect, I think I’ve figured some things out. I’m still liking this wardrobe and hope to dwindle it down to even less items. Now that I’ve been wearing items on a more “heavy” rotation, I’ve figured out some of the most basic, capsule wardrobe essentials.

Banana Protein Pancakes

Breakfast: the most important meal of the ENTIRE DAY. I love breakfast, including breakfast for breakfast and breakfast for dinner. Since I’ve been working on being healthier (I am 30, after all), I was excited when I stumbled upon a banana protein pancakes recipe. I ended up searching for one when I realized I had some super ripe bananas that I didn’t want to throw out. I’ve had banana pancakes before (like the 3 ingredient kind) but had never had banana protein ones. So, naturally, I had to test it out.

Bok Tower Gardens

The Bok Tower Gardens is a beautiful destination near Central Florida. This National Historic Landmark, located in Lake Wales, Florida boasts beautiful gardens (obvi!), a historic home, and the “Taj Mahal of the United States”. Adam and I have been to a few gardens; we love walking around, exploring, and – of course! – snapping photos. For those that are tired of theme parks or shopping, Bok Tower Gardens is worth the drive.

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars

Adam and I love sweet snacks, so much so that we don’t keep a lot of sweet snacks in the house. I’ll purchase his favorites – Oreos and Oatmeal Cream Pies – once in a while, but tend to skip the snacks altogether on most weeks. Since I’ve started this Kayla Itsine’s BBG program, I’ve decided that Adam and I need some healthier options around. Even though these chocolate chip oatmeal bars aren’t the best for us, I’m starting out with this simple recipe.
