A Little Bit of Life {No.2}

Welcome back to my weekly "Little Bit of Life" post!

Y'all, big things are happening in this girls life-I can't wait until I can finally share with everyone!

But getting back to what I can tell y'all, I am getting so so excited about Springtime and graduation, all fun things.

I spent this past week getting in my teaching days for internship, attempting to keep the housework at bay, and picking up a few cute additions to my wardrobe and our household!

I bought these OTBT Bushnell's last summer and have absolutely loved them.
I got mine in Pewter and they match so much, they're SUPER comfortable (& if a teacher says something is comfy, you know that it really is), and the quality is great.
I'm planning on buying the all black pair for my graduation shoes.

I wish I could link this outfit for y'all because it's one of my absolute faves!
I wore this Umgee plus embroidered dress on Monday with black tights & my Ariat Hacienda boots and received so many compliments on it.

If you want to hear my favorite song; it's this one. . . Tuxedo by Clare Dunn.

I was lucky enough to get the Target Beauty Box for March, I loved almost every single product in the box and can't wait to share it on the blog this upcoming week.

Have you checked out Lunch With Lilly?
It ends tonight, but there are still fab gifts with purchase...if I could swing it, I'd be spending the $1400 to get the First Impressions weekender bag!

Speaking of Lilly, check out this fun shot I took with the dress I wore last Friday!

I talked about Gingham on the blog this week, and now I'm loving this top from Old Navy-need to add it to my closet asap!

I recently got the opportunity to try out Pure Goodness Hemp Protein in Vanilla
I tried it today by turning it into a peanut butter protein smoothie and it was delish!

I added 1 cup of milk, 1 scoop of Pure Goodness Vanilla Protein Powder, 1 scoop of PB2 peanut butter, 1 tsp vanilla extract, and enough ice to make it to the consistency of your choosing.

I blended it all up in my Ninja and it was SO good.

Plus, it's 100% vegan, paleo friendly, non-gmo, dairy, gluten, and soy free.
So if you have special dietary restrictions or just want to feel a little bit better about your protein powder this is a great option for you!

And on top of all that, 1% of their sales go to fight hunger across the U.S. and that's something you can feel good about supporting.

(Check out their social media as well!)


This video speaks SO much to me.
Girls should never feel limited, I would love to see more emojis and everything else that reflects how able women are to do anything they put their minds to!

I hope y'all enjoyed this little bit of my life and I'm so glad y'all are loving these posts!

Until next time. . .
