I swear I can't keep up with the days or my stress levels lately. I have always been that person who does a million things at once but recently it's gotten out of control. In my hectic try-to-accomplish everything mornings & nights I usually have mini breakdowns, or I will continuously forget something, or even drop something. The other morning I ran out the door, ten bags in my hands, spilled iced tea everywhere, and dropped my phone in the snow. A day in the life of clumsy Maria. What can you do though? I try to laugh it off, but most of the time I chalk it up to being too overwhelmed with everything that needs to get done.

I feel like I haven't had a chance to really write a post because of the constant hustle and bustle of the holidays mixed in with buying a puppy and moving into my own place. So much has changed over the past month, it's almost crazy! Oliver is doing so well, and I love my place so much. I am starting to really get it all together with decorating, buying things I need, and also moving and arranging things I already have.

I have always hated change, but lately it's what keeps me going. Moving from one to the next is definitely fun, and I have realized that not really "having a plan" is something I could actually get used to. I am slightly spontaneous, but I do like an organized life overall, so a mix of both is good for me.

I put this outfit on the other day in between rain showers and realized that I looked like a walking Christmas tree. I love red & green together and usually forget that they are associated with Christmas. I am feeling pretty festive this year, and I am really excited about all of the things going on around LTV this month. I am excited for new collaborations and lots of awesome campaigns through companies I have always been a huge fan of. 

My Mom thinks it's going to be my best year yet, and I think I have to agree with her. Gotta keep the ball moving! Have a great hump day!


  1. Good luck on all your ventures, girl. :) Just keep swimming right? You sound like you're doing a fantastic job, even if you're feeling overwhelmed. Congrats on the place and puppy and keep it up!
