Fourth Of July!

Hey everyone! I hope you all had an amazing holiday weekend filled with great food, good vibes, and nice weather!! – We kept it pretty simple this year, mostly because we  had to work the next day, but it was a great time!

It’s been busy over here with wedding planning & work, but I had to share some of my fourth of July looks! For some reason I wanted to be festive this year -LOL.

I like tying a jacket around my waist to make it more defined, especially since the dress is not tight to the body. This look is super casual, but you could also dress it up. I think that’s what I love about it! Plus it’s only $36 dollars!

-Next up is this two piece amazon find! I wasn’t sure when I purchased it if I was going to like it, but I ended up REALLY liking it! Since I’m short I was concerned about the high waist making me look odd. However, I have seen so many other bloggers (of all body types) with this same bathing suit & it looks great on all of them! It comes in a lot of other colors & its only $25 dollars! – STEAL

I’ve linked below – HOWEVER the blue/white t-shirt dress is sold out so I linked the same dress in a different color!

Our Easter Weekend

– I can’t remember the last time we got together with our family for Easter. It gets so busy with everyone’s schedule that we really don’t mine -LOL. Maybe one day we will either host/ go somewhere for a visit, but until then we are perfectly fine getting away just the two of us. ( & dogs)

Naturally, we went to our favorite place, or my favorite place, Traverse City! Yes, we go there a lot and no we probably will never get sick of it. We decided to go on Saturday which was great because we had awesome weather!

Our first stop was Hop Lot for some drinks & nachos! I swear, their nachos are the best! I’ve posted some photos before of the vibe, and for some reason this time I only managed to take one photo. Oh well, there always next time. 😉

Of course, Suttons Bay Ciders was on the list as well. If you’re ever in the area I highly recommend you stop in. They have the best view. The cider is good too, but this view on a nice day….. come on.

I will say we spent most of the time in the car on Sunday. – Lol. I didn’t realize that I forgot my purse until we had already been driving for 45 mins. -Oops. Oh well, we made it through.

Side note: We ordered Chinese food for dinner on the way home and when I went in to pick it up the lady felt bad we didn’t have a party to be at. -LOL.

Thanks for hanging out guys!

Always- Tara XOXO

Friday Vibes

-If you’re anything like me you want to look cute, but be comfortable. Especially on the weekends! For the most part we’re pretty laid back when it comes to what we do. Hiking, drinking, and casual nights in with friends is our vibe. However, sometimes you want to look and feel good while doing it!!

-I have TWO looks that I am sharing with you today that I would wear for those weekend nights out!! Of course, you all know I love my black-LOL.

First up is this jumpsuit from Amazon!! That’s right, and only $20 dollars & comes in more colors! I’ll link it here.

I’m pretty short, so it’s a little long. I ordered a medium due to chest size, however I think a small would have worked, especially for a shorter length. Nothing the dryer probably couldn’t fix!

Next up is a romper from Express! Now, its from last season so it’s no longer on their website, BUT I’ll link a similar one in shape & style here. Currently on SALE TOO!!

-You could change both looks up depending on what you wanted. Create a more casual look with each by adding flats/sandals. Or dress it up with some heels and cute accessories!! I love jackets, so that’s usually my go to.

-Always, Tara XOXO

Get To Know Me!

 

 

Hi! I’m Tara! I wanted to jump on here and properly introduce myself. I’ve noticed so many new faces, and a lot of you have been asking questions to get to know me better (which I love! ) so I figured I’d spill some details about myself to answer everyone’s questions. -Which to be honest, talking about myself feels kind of weird, haha.

I like sharing information about products, places, etc. & determining how much of my personal life to keep to myself or share is a new balancing experience for me. 🙂 So as I answer all your questions I’ll be an open book & I hope you enjoy!

Always, – Tara

About Yours Truly

How old are you? I’m 32

Do you have any siblings? Yes! I have an older sister. Where are all my youngest siblings at?!! -Lol. We are 8 1/2 years apart BUT you honestly wouldn’t know it! We have always been really close.

What other hobbies besides blogging do you have? Singing really loudly with headphones in! -Haha. I love music & it doesn’t matter what you put on, I will sing along. Growing up I was the one my friends would always go to for information like “what’s the name of this song?’ or “who is this singing”. To be honest, I’m kind of slipping now that I’m older, but that’s what Google is for, right?!  I also took vocal lessons as a teenager & into adulthood, so needless to say my fiancé gets front row seats when I clean the house!

What’s your real job? Currently I work in sales. To be more specific, I work in the insurance world. How I got into it, I really don’t know- Lol. I went to school first for broadcast/radio and went back for my bachelors in public relations. I’m still new to the sales gig, only been doing it for a year. Before that I bartended for 7 years!

How did you meet your fiancé & how long have you been together? – I met Ryan through mutual friends. His best friend is married to one of my besties that I used to bartend with. The first time we met in person was at a friends house for a scary movie night! ( I know, right?) It was awkward because we knew everyone was trying to hook us up, but it worked out! -Haha. We’ve been together for 5 years now and will be married this September!

You still haven’t shared your wedding location, where will it be? – Hmm. I think I still want  to keep it a secret! Even though I have given many hints on my insta stories! You’ll just have to keep your eyes out!

How long have you been blogging? What made you want to do it? – I have been blogging for 7 months now. It’s exciting and challenging! If you’ve been following me for awhile now, I’m sorry! You are seeing all the good with the bad, but hey that’s how we learn and grow!

I actually used to have my own website years ago for music/radio purposes. I knew I always wanted to be creative and share things with people, I just didn’t know where to start. So one day after thinking about creating my blog, I just did it!

How many dogs do you have? I have two! Henry is our 3 year old lab, and Beamer is our 9 year old corgi! If I could I would get another one!

Have you always lived in Michigan? Yes. I always said when I was younger I was moving out of state, but I think I like it here now, -lol.

Do you have any kids? No I do not. Might do a post on this topic.

Any tips for someone wanting to start a blog? I am still learning myself, but I will say you have to be YOURSELF! Don’t try and do what everyone else is doing, certain things don’t work for everyone. You also have to be a little patience. You won’t instantly get thousands of followers, likes, or comments. If you do great! but it always surprises me when people want instant gratification. Just keep working hard and you will reach your goals! Be positive!
