5 Ways to Take Back Your Weekends

About the time I moved to Chattanooga, I created a really bad habit of saving everything from errands, to fun coffee shops, to new places I wanted to explore, for the weekend. Then, the weekend rolled around and I felt like the whole thing was jam-packed and gone in the blink of an eye.

It wasn't until just recently that I fully understood what I was doing. So, in an attempt to take back my weekend, I use all seven days of the week for anything and everything instead of waiting until Saturday rolls around to do all the things.

Wellness Wednesday: Infrared Sauna

Self-care and overall wellness has been extremely important to me over the last year or so.

Summer Skincare Tips

If there is one thing I've learned about summer skincare from growing up in Florida, it's preventative skincare is the first line of defense. The most preventative measures you take before your skin starts to age, the longer you can fend off the aging process all together. Living so close to the equator, summers are hot in Florida, which affects skincare all the way from cleanser to serum to sunscreen. Whether you have dry skin or oily, the summer can be just as hard on your skin as the winter months.

Skincare is merely a perfect blend of products that suit your skin and give it exactly what it needs, while also acting as a barrier against the atmosphere's effects as well. I've rounded up the must have summer products, as well as my own personal tips to beat the heat and UV rays of summer.

Cool Summer Days

Lingering cool days in the mountains extend sweater weather a little bit longer than in the rest of the south. When the rhododendrons are in full bloom, but its barely 65 degrees—my favorite. I always feel so cozy and comfortable in this Gibson sweater from Nordstrom. It's light enough and extremely soft—it's my go-to for rainy days too.
