Happy Galentine's Day!!
One of my local blogger friends hosted THE cutest Galentine's Brunch two weeks ago and I'm still not over all the sweet details. I made a promise to myself to get more involved with local influencers and get to know more like-minded girls around me and I'm so glad I am! We could have all sat there and talked about blogging for way too long but enjoyed every second haha.
When I am bored and iced in the house with nothing else to do, I guess it's time to play dress up and cozy in for the day. I get so bored being home all day, even just for one day. Unless it's on a work day and we are snowed in (which NEVER happens) I am fine. Just something about being stuck inside when I could be out doing things on the weekend. Not that I will ever pass up some extra snuggle time with Maui.
This H&M sweater might just be my favorite. Ever. I need it in every single color. It's the perfect "over-sized" style but not overwhelming on my petite figure or scratchy on my sensitive skin. Perfectly paired with my favorite pants this season from Urban Outfitters, I could be an outfit repeater in this one way too often! Or switch it up. I love this sweater with a midi skirt or high waisted jeans of basically any fit. Such an easier sweater!
I hope everyone has a wonderful week ahead wrapping up January 2020.... HOW? WHAT!? Time flies!!
Sometimes I get in a rut of my fitness schedule. I get tired of my same old gym, and I of course get tired of my workout clothes. Now that the weather is cooling off in the evenings I am trying to make an effort to spend some time being active outside and soaking up some fresh air! Last week I made a promise to myself I'd switch it up starting with a run downtown and around the square and I was so happy I did. It just changes up your perspective a little bit and is so much more entertaining to have a little bit of change on your run.
This morning, I went to my favorite yoga class to start my weekend. I lovvveee this lady's class. There is always only like 7 of us since it's at 9:30 on a Saturday. She's Russian and so hardcore but I LOVE it!! She always starts out asking who wants to push themselves and play or be more relaxed but she always ends up doing a super fun and difficult class- not that I'm that good or anything. But that's what I love about yoga, you can kinda make it how your body needs it! Such a great way to stretch & breath out a work week of stress and just connect with your body.
I'm loving this nude top (ON SALE!) from Athleta right now and basically anything neutral in my closet for Fall. I'm also obsessed, of course, with these olive green leggings from LuluLemon! The align pant is always my go-to because they just suck you in and are so stretchy and comfy to wear around the house and to the gym.
Tomorrow bright and early I am off to NYC for work and I cannot wait to soak up all the energy of the city, catch up with one of my best friends from college, and see Wicked!!
Happy Saturday friends, XX Haley
I'm so, so happy I don't have to wear a coat to work or bundle up when I run to the gym! Spring is my absolute FAVORITE! The flowers and trees are starting to bloom here and it seems like it just happened over night. I don't want to miss a single second of it trapped inside. I can't get enough of the yellow and nude-pinks in my wardrobe either! I'll be wearing thisdress and these sneakers all through summer.
It’s Friday night, I’m watching Our Planet on Netflix and waiting for my banana bread to bake in the over. Now that is my kind of Friday night after a long and tiring week!
I haven’t done a life update on here in a while and thought I should! February and March were big months for me. Starting at the beginning of Feb, my best friend in the whole world got engaged AND my sister did two weeks later!!!!! Have I stopped crying tears of joy? No. My life is in full swing get my besties and sis married, celebrated, working and finding time to manage my Instagram in-between. Mid-Feb, Austin and I went to Seattle for a long weekend getaway and had a blast! We got tattoos together (my first!!)! Stay tuned for that post :)
In between all of this, I got an incredible opportunity at work for a promotion in a new position and started right when we got back from Seattle. Work has been crazy busy and fun but last weekend I was sure happy to be letting loose and going on a girls trip to Nashville to celebrate one of my college bestie’s bachelorette party weekend.
This week is NWA Fashion week and I was super excited when they asked me to attend for press! Last night was their first ever bridal night and I got to see my cute former bosses from Tesori and their curated styles for the show. Saturday I’m excited to attend a panel with Nylon Magazine’s Editor in Chief, Gabrielle Korn. I’m probably most excited about this one. It’s crazy to me that lil' ole Bentonville has events like this now. Next up Bentonville Film Festival in May!
All of this life living, is why I have been a little MIA on here, however I plan on getting back into things a bit more for spring and I am really excited to get into my little hideaway and write some more.
Thanks for stopping by and being apart of Haley’s Dailies!!
Thank you Princess Polly Boutique for sponsoring this post!
When someone asks me where my favorite place to buy comfortable bras is, I always have a round about answer of "well I like this fit here and this fit here... but I also like these!" Honestly, it's because what I wear under my clothes is so different depending on my mood and the occasions. I like to have options, ya know? :)
True & Co gifted me this nude set and weekend bra and I can honestly say that I LOVE THEM!! Supportive, and light, and I don't even think about the fact that I have one on, which is the whole point ladies!! They are having a major sale right now and the True Weekend Adjustable is on sale for $15 from $54!!! Such a steal. Their True Body Line is perfect for any shape and size, and has different cuts for what you need for your body. I love this V Neck bra and the underwear to match are all 3 for $33 right now. Don't miss out on this sale and find your perfect fit and styles using their quiz here.
Happy Sunday loves! xx
I can't get enough of the leaves and I can't get enough of this dress!! Shoutout to Austin, he picked this out for me for our 6 year anniversary (OMG SIX) and I'm obsessed with it because a.) it's Free People and b.) it's floral AND polka dot!! Ugh, he just gets me :)
Today I wanted to hop on here and talk about finding balance in your life. It's so, so important to make this a priority in your life. Even small steps toward balance can bring you happiness and content. The other day I heard a quote that really hit home with me:
"Balance is not something you find, it's something you create."
Here are a few tips on how to create more balance in your daily life:
1.) Health: Not just physical health, but mind and spirit too! Give yourself a break when you feel like life has been getting crazy, even if you have to just give yourself some alone time from the world. This helps me refresh more than anything!
I don't always eat super healthy, but I don't always eat take out. If I felt bad about what I ate earlier in the day, I try to make sure I find time to hit the gym. If I eat super healthy the next day, I sometimes give myself a break. My favorite way to balance healthy eating is by eating a healthy breakfast and lunch and then enjoying myself at dinner after a long day (but not going too crazy haha).
2.) Work: Having a good work life balance is super challenging when you don't draw a line. I'm that girl that would rather be early or on time to work than roll in late and have to stay at the office late finishing things up. I take time management seriously so that when I'm out of the office I can do whatever the heck I want and not have to worry about what I needed to finish!
3.) Setting Goals: At the beginning of each week, I sit down and write down my goals for the week in my agenda planner. Gym goals, blog goals, even me time goals. Being able to check off a list helps me to accomplish things and keeps me reminded of why I wanted to do a certain thing in the first place. Setting realistic goals is also incredibly important; sometimes you just need to start with your priorities.
Creating balance is hard, but with baby steps, your growth as an individual leads to security in your mental peace and well being. Try and start tomorrow with one part of your balance, and see how it slowly brings peace into every aspect of your life! You've got this girl!
