Becky at Choose Happy has been running a fun link up party called Currently. I join Becky for her Currently link up series once a month. I thought it would be a fun way to update y'all on my life in a light way through photos and blurbs of text.
I am starting my first ever monthly newsletter for this blog and I would LOVE for you to join my mailing list! I plan to add topics to the newsletter that aren't on the blog, including a blog tip of the month, an oldie but goodie (I'll share one of my old posts that was popular), a featured blogger of the month AND more! You can subscribe by entering your email address in below and hitting 'Subscribe'!

We are officially booked to go to ITALY this summer! We have our air tickets and hotels and now I need to start planning what we will do during our short stay (one week!) while visiting Rome, Florence AND Venice! I also still need to get my passport renewed! The photo above is of the hotel we are staying at while in Florence... ahh, yes... ROOF TOP POOL and BAR with a VIEW! European travel has you walking all day (at least, we did when we went to Paris) and how relaxing will it be to soak in this pool at the end of the day? Yes OH yes!
That time I got on the Ladies in Stitch Fix Pinterest Board!!
Recently I did my sixth Stitch Fix post and I noticed the post was doing amazingly well and getting a ton of traffic. I started to look into WHY this post was getting hit so hard and I found out that the kind Stitch Fix folks pinned two of my photos (the two you see above) to their Ladies in Stitch Fix pinterest board! How exciting!! I honestly didn't even know this board excited, but now I'll be looking at it regularly.
I tried out some new curl products on Autumns hair and I am in love with the results. The products I tried are called Boing So Cozy and they came out in Target stores this month! In the photos above I used the Curl Shampoo, Conditioner and Gel-Cream. It has really made a difference in her hair and she now has less fluff and frizz! Also, isn't this houndstooth jacket adorbs? A blogging friend (that no longer blogs or IG's- boo!) sent this to Autumn last year. It finally fits this winter! Yay!
Free Samples with PINCHme!
I received my second and third PINCHme boxes and WOW... the second box was pet themed, but lets talk about the THIRD box! This box is Mom-themed and SOME of the items it included were: Boon snug spout (turn your cup into a sippy!), Olay tone perfecting cream, Kasha GoLean bar, condoms(!!) and even Summer's Eve night-time cleansing cloths and wash (woohoo!). There were also several other items in the box, just too many to mention!
And, you can receive a PINCHme box, too for FREE! Click HERE to fill out a questionnaire that will find the best samples for you. On sample Tuesday (one Tuesday a month) you can select which samples you’d like to receive. Sample Tuesday is February 23! No credit card is needed, it is FREE… all they ask is for your opinions and thoughts on the samples they send you.
I'm going on my third week of Invisalign and it is getting a lot easier. The first few days were the worst, I just wanted to rip the things off of my teeth every second they were on. In the photo above, I am wearing the Invisalign and it is the first week. I am thinking about doing some Invisalign posts to show the process on my teeth and to share my experience. If you look close, you'll see that they put little 'buttons' on some of my teeth (thankfully not my 2 front teeth) and the trays go over these buttons. All of this helps to move my teeth.
I'll keep the exercise part short this time, BUT I finally made it to 30 Day Shred Level 3 and I am killing it! Yeah!! And, I might actually be seeing some ABS on my bod... ok, I can see them if I squint real hard when looking in the mirror. ;)
I am currently training for my half marathon #9 and it has been going good so far. I've stepped up my speed and incline a bit during each mile.
I usually plow through 1-2 books a month... but, I am a little more then halfway through Night Film... so, I'll review it next month. Its 600+ pages, so I consider it the length of two books. ;) I am really enjoying it, although its a little different from what I normally read.
