It’s my birthday week! I turned 27 on Monday and I had a wonderful weekend celebrating my birthday. 26 was a great year, actually. I spent time with great people, succeeded at my former job, started a new (challenging, but fun) job, paid off some debts, and even did a little traveling. I’m not sure there’s much more I could’ve asked for. I’m so grateful for the vacation I was able to take last Spring with my boyfriend – we spent a week in Orlando visiting Walt Disney World and Universal Studios. This was my first time visiting both parks…

It was kind of tough planning out what I’m lusting over this month since we just celebrated Christmas and I was lucky to receive some amazing gifts from my family. I call this a “lust list” because these aren’t items I NEED, but rather they are items I’d like to treat myself to after working hard to either save up for them or using my “fun stuff budget” on. Here’s what I’m…

Do you have a secret obsession that you just can’t explain? You know it’s random and makes no sense, but yet you can’t help but adore it. That’s me with Pusheen the Cat. Have you heard of Pusheen? If you use Facebook Messenger, one of your built-in sticker options is Pusheen ones. Pusheen the Cat is an animated web comic series that you can see here. And, believe it or not, Pusheen has nine million Facebook fans. As a Pusheen fanatic, you can only imagine my excitement when it was announced that there would be a seasonal Pusheen Box. I decided to get the box…
