How To Have a More Productive Week

August 11, 2017

If you saw my last Instagram post, you will know that I’ve had sort of a draining week. And, because I work from home (an environment I normally thrive in), this means I have to keep my week as productive as possible. I decided to do my research, ask everyone, and compile a list of things that will help me, and hopefully, help you in the future.

Wanderlust Wednesday + Bucket Lists

May 3, 2017

It’s no surprise, I’ve got quite a few things on my Bucket List. My list is always changing and growing, but I figured that if I put it down on paper, maybe I’ll stick to them even more. I wanted to take a few moments to share some of those goals and see what kind of things are on yours!

Here are some cool ones:

  • Learn horseback riding.
  • Go horseback riding on a beach.
  • Start a clothing line (from the days when I was a Fashion major).
  • Learn a new language (and actually know how to speak it!)
  • Travel to a new country/city at least 3x per year. I would like to begin with Bora Bora, Germany, and England.
  • Take one of those cool DNA tests like this.
  • Own a home in a new place.
  • Own a vacation home in an even cooler place.
  • Buy my dream car

Then there are the obvious, cheesy ones, like:

  • Go back to school
  • Pay off my car
  • Learn a new dish to cook
  • Start a family

I’ve always wanted to learn to ride horses, but it would be even cooler doing it on a beach. How romantic does that sound? And recently, I’ve been seeing more and more beautiful photos from people vacationing in Bora Bora. I would love to do this in the next year (hopefully my boyfriend is reading this). And as much as I love Chicago, settling down somewhere I can call “home” has always been a dream of mine. Even better, having a vacation home we can go to on weekends sounds DE-LIGHTFUL!

Tell me, what’s on your Bucket List??
