The In's & Out's of Staying Motivated


Motivation has always been something I've felt I was good at. My motivation was internal at times, and external at others, but it was always there. I was always striving for something. Lately, I've been a lot less motivated than usual, with school, relationships, & just living my life. I could take an easy route and blame it all on senior-itis, which, to be fair, is a lot of it. But I decided to look deeper into what was making me lack my usual "shoot for the stars" mantra; and to fix it.

I was moved to write post and am excited to share with you what it is I found. Motivation isn't about always being productive, and always finishing tasks on time. Granted, that is helpful in the big scheme of things, but that is not what motivation is. Getting and staying motivated depends solely on your ability to see the big picture. There are numerous times in life where you will do small tasks, which create a big result. But.. All we see is the big result. We never see all the small and frustrating failures that hide within the wall of a giant success. Understanding that these small failures, and sometimes small successes, eventually make up whatever it is you want, is how we create motivation. Key word: eventually.

Blue Pattern Romper for Spring

Hi all!
I was recently college visiting, and I stopped in a quaint little boutique with cheap adorable clothes! Of course I had to stock up for grad party season, so I bought a few dresses, and a few rompers. Off the shoulder anything is so trendy for this summer, and I definitely fell in love with this romper for that reason, The cinched waist is super flattering, as well as the adorable pattern that will look even better with a tan! Unfortunately when I did this shoot, it wasn't even really that warm outside so I'll definitely be outfit repeating this little romper when the temperature peaks this summer. 
I've also noticed this bag being carried by a lot of bloggers lately. I got this bag in the fall for the beginning of my school year from Free People. J. Crew now as a similar bag out and that seems to be the go to over the shoulder bag! I love the light color, which is perfect for spring. It fits everything I need and can be worn as a cross body or a shoulder bag, very versatile!
My pink ray bans were my favorite birthday gift! I was between the pink and the green, but chose the pink because I loved it with my blonde hair. I did try on nearly every color though, and am definitely contemplating started a ray ban collection now.
ENJOY! :)
