My motto for 2017 is to live a life that I love so much that I don’t need a vacation to escape. Or to live a life so that every day feels like a vacation. I haven’t decided which wording I like more, but you get the point. Of course this doesn’t mean quitting my job and moving to the beach or traveling around Europe for a year,  because I’m sure traveling every day would be fun, but would still get tiring at some point, and I couldn’t afford it.

What I mean is that I want to create a life where I wake up everyday grateful and happy and excited for the day to come. I want to come home from work and feel at peace because I’ve decorated each space in my home to be functional, thoughtful, and reflective of me. I want to enjoy each meal because it was made with love, even after a long day of work. I want to be fit, not because I want to look good but because I want to feel good; I want to be healthy, I want to take care of my body, my skin, my hair, my nails, etc. because I’m grateful for the body I’ve been given. I want to be better with my money, save more, but also treat myself with quality products because sometimes you just deserve to spoil yourself.

This blog is about that – creating a life I love – through home decor ideas and DIY projects, some of my health and style loves, and some of my favorite recipes.

Although I want to create a life I love so much that I don’t need a vacation to escape…I am passionate about traveling and think that you should definitely go on vacation! Go on vacation because you want to visit family or because you love the beach or because traveling is your passion; not because you need to escape.
