The Smile Tag // I’m Happiest When…

One of my favorite things about being a blogger is meeting other awesome people who love to blog too. I was recently nominated for “The Smile Tag” from one of my favorite bloggers, Kali from Ink On My Hands. (Definitely check her out–she always features the best beauty/style trends & I love her honesty and authenticity!) The Smile Tag was originally created by Ciarra Loren, and all you have to do is share a picture of you smiling (which is easy for me because I have TONS of smiley photos). I figured this would be a nice chance to share all the things that make me the happiest. Hopefully this will make you smile a little bit too!

I Got a Tattoo (& Things to Consider if You Want One, Too)

So I got a tattoo yesterday. To some people, this may be extremely surprising that I got a tattoo at all. To others, it may be extremely surprising that I actually pulled the trigger & went through with it. No, this was not some super spontaneous decision to permanently mark my body–a lot of people don’t know I’ve been thinking about this for about a year and half & finally made a solid decision to do it about two weeks ago. Regardless, I can honestly say that I’m ridiculously happy I did it & I’m actually obsessed with the whole experience and how it all turned out.

Beyond that, I was overwhelmed by the amount of support I got from my friends when they saw the final product on social media. I also got a lot of questions about the process & how I’m feeling about it, so I wanted to dedicate a post about my tattoo experience and some things to consider if you’re contemplating getting one too. Enjoy!

The Brunch Review: First Watch

Big shout out to Bailey for introducing me to First Watch, a new brunch place right in Villanova, and the next place up for review. Go cats, go brunch.
