Mile High

H&M sneakers (exact pair) / Hollister jeans / Gap v-neck / H&M blazer / Zara bag / Target sunglasses

I am currently in the Mile High city of Denver, CO. This is my first time here and I am so happy to be here to experience mountain views as well as breathe in the fresh air. I came here for an I CAN DO IT! Conference from Hay House which just wrapped up last night. I will share about my experience in a vlog coming up later this week on my Youtube channel. 

The weather in Denver has been a nice change to that of Chicago and I am taking advantage of it! I recently picked up these leopard sneakers from H&M and I've worn them every single day since I bought them. They are in stores right now, so go get yourself a pair! 

Have a beautiful day!

Wind in My Hair

H&M coat // Hollister jeans // ASOS bag // Urban Outfitters booties

I wore this outfit yesterday thinking that with warmer temperatures I would skip layering. Boy was I wrong! It may have been warmer, but it was windy and that means my hair was flying everywhere! Sometimes when we are in so much anticipation for something, we forget to be practical or logical. But who needs practicality and logic in order to do something. Why not just do it because you feel like it? The more you lead and live from your true feelings, the more experiences you'll have to learn and grow from! 

Here is to an AMAZING week! 
Tell me, what is one thing you are looking forward to about Spring? I am looking forward to going on runs along the lake.

Throwback: The London Dreamcicle

Meet the 99 Flake. 

It was a beautiful, but hot summer day in London of July 2011 as we walked through the parks at Hampstead Heath. I really wanted water to drink, but the only water that was around was in the ponds surrounding the parks where women were sunbathing topless and the men splashing around in the water. 

However, by chance or fate I stumbled upon an ice cream truck and this is where I had my very first 99 Flake. A Flake is a delicious crumbly chocolate that is inserted into a cone of vanilla ice cream to make the 99 Flake. Its absolutely delicious and very British! So if you are headed to London or anywhere in England, try one of these!

Seeing these picture instantly takes me back to that day when I devoured one these babies and plenty more during my trip that summer! What is your one unforgettable treat that you've had?

Snow White

Abercrombie & Fitch jeans / Forever 21 coat / Gap turtleneck / Urban Outfitters shoes / Scarf from Camden Town in London / Forever 21 earrings 

It is March and its snow white. Its been really cold, with more fresh snow on the ground and winds at gusting speeds. This means Spring is no where near in sight. I guess at times like these its becomes difficult to keep your mind at bay of thoughts of warmer weather, but the only way to be okay with it is to accept what the temperatures are right now. I have been taking a different perspective and choosing to see the beauty even on the days all I want is sunshine and a high of 70 degrees, by cozying up in PJ's with a hot tea and watching the snow fall. There is something absolutely beautiful about catching a snowfall! When we live in the here and now, we make peace and accept the situation we are in. 

The best way to take care of the future is to take care of the present moment.
