Mohican Weekend Adventures: Camping, river rafting, & a vlog


Over the weekend, Mike and I met up with my friend Bri down in Loudonville, Ohio to go camping for the weekend at Mohican State Park Campgrounds. Our trip down took about 2 hours, however we left a little late so once we got to our destination it was pitch black and we couldn’t see […]

Becoming a Vlogger


What the heck is a vlogger? Well, it’s a “Video Blogger” – i.e. a person who blogs, just through videos. Vlogging is something I’ve been wanting to try (and okay, I have actually tried it before and failed miserably), but after BlogFest and hearing how much Blogilates recommended having a YouTube channel, I decided to […]

Nautical Night Out: Lake Erie Style


Spending a gorgeous evening out on the water of Lake Erie with friends & family is a pretty fantastic way to spend a Saturday night. I dressed for the occasion, of course, with a nautical-themed outfit. It was truly a “nautical night out” & let’s just say I’m kind of obsessed with this outfit. You’ll […]

Flirty in Floral + Life Lately


Since the blog rebrand, I haven’t really had a chance to just write about life. Now seems like as good a time as any to do just that. A lot has happened the past couple of months and it’s kind of felt like a whirlwhind. I mean seriously, did July even happen? I feel like […]

As I’ve mentioned before, this year is my “golden birthday” where I’m turning 25 on the 25th. To celebrate, I’m spending the weekend before my birthday at […]

AERO NOW by Aeropostale


Life is all about change. It’s funny to look back and remember how things used to be, who we used to be, and what things we used to like. My taste in fashion has changed so much over the years. I remember in high school, my favorite stores were Hollister/Abercrombie & Fitch, Delia’s, PacSun, Aeropostale, […]
