Happy Friday y’all and welcome to the first “Happy Hour” of the year! I started this series last year as a way for us to have a virtual happy hour – just like we would if we were friends “in real life!” ☺️ Although we cant all sit and have cocktails together, this is my way to catch up with you and share big and small things going on in my life. I definitely want this to be a two way street, so make sure to let me know what’s happening in your life too!

I originally created this as a monthly series, but I’m actually going to try this as a weekly series! I just think every week there is so much to share and I don’t have another way to get all the random thoughts in my head in one place… so this is the perfect spot!

So let’s dive in to the revamped Happy Hour! Grab a coffee ( or wine… duh ) and let’s get this party started!!!


Loft Heart Swing Dressis it too early to start planning for Valentines Day?! I actually love Valentines (whether I have a date or not!) and this heart print dress is such a sweet way to celebrate the occasion! Currently it’s 50% off with code “WANT!”

Loft Heart Sweaterif a sweater is more your style (or you need the warmth) the sweater version of this sweet print is also a winner! Pair it with a pink skirt for a sweet look worthy of celebration! Again, get 50% off with cod “WANT”

THE Amazon JacketHave you heard about THE famous amazon jacket?! All the fashionistas on the Upper East Side have been spotted wearing this designer coat and the funny thing is it’s an Amazon find! I was out to dinner last night and spotted this gem live and in person and it’s so good y’all! It was an instant “add to cart!”


I (like the rest of America) am currently obsessed with Tidying Up with Marie Kondo on Netflix! I never realized how much clutter I had until I started watching. So this weekend I’m hoping to start my own Kon Mari journey- would y’all want to see before and after pictures?!

It’s that time of year when we are all making resolutions and wanting to make big changes in our lives. But what if you missed the Jan 1 date?! I loved this article from Alyson on the one resolution you need to make. A great read!

I’m also obsessed with being grateful & thankful this year! I want to count up the goodness in my life, because there really is so much – even in the hardships! This “Count the Fruit” printout from Shannon is perfect to help you track the goodness in your life.

Y’all know that Buddy just turned 11 this week (queue the tears!!!) and having a pup has been one of the best decisions I’ve made as an adult! Sometimes I love doggy window shopping – Buddy doesn’t want a brother, unfortunately – but a friend of mine just got a new lab and it’s giving me puppy fever! She actually picked it up in MN and brought it home to Florida, but with technology these days you can find a perfect pup from Houston, to Seattle to DC!


Ok, truth time! I really want to share my work style weekly with y’all, but I completely forgot to take pics of my outfits this week ?? #badblogger! Going forward I will be sharing great office style with y’all since I know how much you love it over on the ‘gram!


LoftAs mentioned above, Loft is 50% off the entire store with code “WANT”

J. Crew70% off sale styles wi5h code “GOFORIT”


Currently I am freezing by booty off in NYC for work! It’s snowing lightly and only 20 degrees! Brrrrr! I fly home tonight & am pretty excited to get back to some warmth! The rest of this weekend is relaxed and plan free & im pumped! After kicking off the year being go go go, I need to spend some time at home cleaning, organizing, and catching up with life! Looking forward to getting it done this weekend 🙂

Your turn! What’s going on with you?! Tell me your plans in the comments below! Happy weekend!

    I would love to see your wardrobe for work. I’m always trying to figure out a balance between professional and fashionable and I feel like you’d be great with that.
