Summer Bucketlist + Life Update

I have completely ghosted since the start of the year. But I am determined to become consistent in my content again. So with that being said I have created a summer bucketlist that I plan on fulfilling along with the help of friends.

Surprisingly working out everyday has been going well for the past two weeks. I'll be sure to include my daily stretching + cardio/endurance combo soon, but I want to be overall fit in general and I always make this a goal but never take initiative. I've come up with a "morning routine" that helps me fit the bible readings in as well as working out so I'll be sure to share that soon.

Life update. Some of the biggest things that's happened between January and now is:

- I passed all my finals, so I am going to be a upperclassmen finally.
- In April I went to prom with friends and preformed in our school's dance department performances. 
- I gathered the courage and motivation to start back blogging :). 
Also if you have any good book or movie suggestions please please share them.

A Story Worth Telling: Savannah, Always S,. Blog

So apparently I had been following Savannah forever on Instagram (which is very inspiring itself) and somehow some way I found out she was a blogger. After reading through her blog, I thought I had to feature her on the blog. Today Savannah shares some insight on herself, and I know you will enjoy it.


To the One Who Wants to Throw In the Towel

Hey... you there,

I know right now life seems hard. Life is giving you it’s butt to kiss and you just want to throw in the towel. You want to give up. 

But you can’t give up. 

I won’t let you. 


Amy Believes in Pink

Today I'm interviewing Amy from I Believe in Pink. Her blog is super bright, inspiring, and I adore her style. So I thought I'd set up an interview and share some insight on one of my favorite bloggers with you. 

  • How would you describe yourself and personality?
Colorful, positive, and enthusiastic! I'm also very organized and detail-oriented, which I think you have to be if you run a blog. 
  • When did you start blogging and why?
The beginning of my freshman year of college. I was taking a lot of the numbers-based prerequisite courses for Richmond's business school, like calculus, and decided that I needed a little more color and creative in my life:) It started as a hobby but quickly turned into a business, and I ended up designing my major around the skills I use in blogging. 
  • How do you maintain a successful blog?
By being disciplined and multi-tasking. You have to LOVE blogging to be a full-time, involved student while being the creative director and editor for your own blog. Thankfully, I'm addicted to doing it so I just fill all of my spare time with blogging. I've been known to blog in crazy places (like on the beach!) in order to get a post up. 
  • What blog do you highly recommend for others?
Ah, I have so many favorites! Lonestar SouthernChronicles of Frivolity, and Gal Meets Glam to name a few :) 

  • What is your inspiration in life?
This is such a hard question! haha. I would say that I'm inspired by my mom/sister, my girlfriends, magazines, pop culture, travel, Pinterest... I pretty much pull inspiration all the time from whatever I'm exposed to. 
  • What's your aspiration in life?
Another hard one! I'd love to work in digital media/PR for a fashion company, maintain and expand I Believe in Pink (I see myself shifting into more decor and lifestyle posts as I get older), and prioritize my family and friends above all :) 
  • What would you consider your style?
Colorful, classic, and feminine. 
  • What can you not leave the house without?
Eyedrops (that's super practical and unglamorous of me, I know, but I have horrible vision and wear really strong contacts so my eyes get bothered when I stare at my computer for hours on end, haha!) 
  • What’s one thing you want to do before you leave this world and be remembered for?
My aim is to bring positive energy to everything I do and make people feel appreciated and loved :) 
That everyone is Amy! Be sure to check out her blog!

Rockbridge Fall Camp 2016 Recap

So last weekend I went to Rockbridge campsite in  mountains of  Virginia for a Young Life camp with my school. I was definitely a different experience and I was able to get both closer to my friends and Jesus all at once. It was a weekend unplugged from the world, and it was just us, Jesus and nature and it was an amazing experience. Here are some highlights from below.

So above are two photos of one of the most terrifying moments of my life. My dear friend, Lydia, somehow convinced me to come face to face with my fear of heights. Not a good idea. We were about 50ft in the air on nothing but a harness attached to whatever that thing is, haha. You pull a string and then you're just going with the wind. Our dear friend James, decided he'd pull the string unexpectedly so we were not prepared for that drop, as you can see in the first picture.

Club was by far my favorite part of the trip. There was music and games and an wonderful message brought to us each day. They're was also music bought the very talented Lou Ruiz, check him out here and then head to spotify. Lydia also has some great clips on her instagram.

Big shout out to Taylor, the one who's back I am on, for chasing me around the whole campsite because I didn't know what I wanted to do. Also to Kate for the walking the trail and having a wonderful conversation.

Here is dear Lydia again, which I have mentioned a few times throughout the blog. Be sure to check out her works of art here and on her instagram.

And lastly cabin time. I chance where I got to get close to each of these girls and we got to share are hearts with each other. By far my favorite time to just sit down and reflect with these girls. They definitely made this trip one to remember and I can't wait for more adventures with them.

So that is Rockbridge 2016 for you, and if you've never been to a Young Life camp or club, you should try it out and attend. Just talk to your leaded at school or ask an counselor about it! Til next time.
