How to Transition Your 'LWD' into Fall





Do y'all smell that amazing aroma in the air? Smells like pumpkins and everything Fall! :)

You guys, Fall is right around the corner and I seriously couldn't be more excited! Just thinking about everything fall entails just has me craving all things pumpkins, layers, and oversized! I have to admit, I used to not be a huge fan of fall. I THOUGHT summer was my favorite season, but that was mainly because my birthday is in the summer. However, besides that magical holiday, there's really nothing about summer that gets me super excited. It's hot, you feel sticky, and the bugs are everywhere (yuck!). Not much to love, but FALL... Lord have mercy I can't wait for fall!

#CABISCOOP | Why It Was So Amazing



So I'm sure if you follow my Instagram, a couple weeks back you saw me posting some super cute Fall Fashions from a front row seat at the Cabi Fashion Show. I had the pleasure and honor of attending #CabiScoop in my hometown of Nashville, TN! This event was held at the Gaylord Opryland Resort Hotel and it was swarming with stylish women from all over the world! It was such an amazing experience being able to learn more about the Cabi brand, connect with other amazing bloggers, not to mention Cabi spoiled us SO GOOD (but more on that later). Before we get into the actual event itself and why it was seriously so much fun, I'm sure some of you are wondering what in the world is #CabiScoop?!

Taking an excerpt straight from the Cabi site, #CabiScoop is "when Cabi Stylists from all over the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. gather to kick off the upcoming season with a few days full of fun, fashion, and training! During this special time together, we celebrate our Stylists’ successes, learn about what makes our Collection special, coach women on developing strong, independent businesses, and most of all…have a blast creating lifelong memories with incredible women." Sounds pretty awesome right? I'm going to be completely honest with you; Cabi is an amazing brand that I have loved working with this year and when they invited me to the fashion show to preview their new fall collection, I was SUPER excited.. but I really had NO IDEA the treat I was in for by attending this event. All I knew was that I was getting the opportunity to attend this fashion show, meet some other cool bloggers, and also the Cabi loves that I have been communicating with for months. I was pumped to say the least! Alright guys, go ahead and scroll down to read more about my experience at #CabiScoop and don't forget to watch the video up top!

Friday Favorites | What's In My Bag? TRAVEL EDITION


Hey y'all! Happy Friday! :)

I will be spending the weekend in Chicago, so if any of you are in the area, let me know! I'd love to link up! I'm excited because tomorrow I'm FINALLY going to see Girl's Trip with my sister! Since I'm gone all the time, my friends went to see it without me and honestly, the short amount of time I'm home is usually so jam packed that the movies is never something I'm able to make happen. However, we are FINALLY going and I'm super excited not only to see the movie, but to see it with my big sis!

Anyway, let's get down to the subject of this post! I had to share this with y'all because I am still SO AMAZED at how much stuff fits in my Ricardo Travel bag! I was super excited when they sent me this bag a couple weeks ago because it came right on time. Y'all know I'm traveling a lot right now for work and my carry-on bag was HUGE. Don't get me wrong though, I LOVE that bag, but sometimes it can just be a little too heavy for me. This new back from Ricardo Travel fits everything I had in that bag PLUS some. I know it seems really hard to believe, so I wanted to show you guys!

Summer Vibes + Currently Through Jam's Mind




Hey loves!  Happy Tuesday!

I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend. I was able to celebrate my friend Jasmine's birthday with her on Sunday over brunch and that was pretty fun. I love Jasmine so I love seeing her happy and surrounded by people who love her as much (well almost) as I do! (: The rest of the time was just really relaxing. My father in law came in town this weekend, and my husband and I really enjoyed spending time with him just talking and catching up. He has always been so nice and welcoming to me, so I'm glad he got to see our new home and spend some quality time with my MJ. I thought it was really cute that he and my husband spent some bonding time installing our new blinds on Saturday. :) My husband now feels like he needs a giant tool belt with all the trimmings! Actually, I think it's just something about being a homeowner that makes men want to fix stuff! haha Can any of you ladies relate?! My thoughts are as long as he doesn't tear up the house, I'm good with it!

 Anyway, we had a pretty chill weekend overall and when this post goes live, I'll be back at work slaving away. I wanted to share with you guys just some random thoughts that have been in my head lately, so I hope you don't mind the venting!

How to Make the Most of Your Weekends




Hey y'all! Happy Friday!

I hope you all had a great week and you're ready to recharge over the weekend. It's the first weekend of August and I'm super excited to have a little time off. Every weekend, I get super excited because for one, I get to go home and two, it's just about having some time to focus on doing things I love and not have to think about work. We have to have work/life balance in order to stay sane loves! I have a phone for my job and I literally leave it plugged in my house in the same spot the entire weekend. MY weekends are MY time. Anyone feel me? Besides, after this weekend, my job is about to ramp up on me and be super crazy busy for a little while, so I need to get all of the "R and R" I can get on the next few days!

Anyway, today I wanted to focus on some keys ways that you can make the most of your weekends.
