    Wine & Design

    At the end of the Spring season, I make a list of things I want to do during the summer. This summer, my list consists of different places I want to see and different things I want to try. I had never attended a Wine & Design event before and figured this would be the perfect chance for me to do so with a couple of my friends. If any of you are unfamiliar with Wine & Design, it’s a paint and sip franchise. You sip wine and paint. After signing up for a spot in the class, I was a bit hesitant to go. I’m not an artist by any means nor…

    M3: Mind, Meditation & Movement

    As you guys know, I’ve been going through somewhat of a self discovery stage at this point in my life. I’ve been trying new things so that I can truly figure out what I like and want out of life. I came across a workshop on Eventbrite called M3: Mind, Meditation & Movement. The purpose of the event was to discover the power of different breathing techniques and to try guided mediation. I decided to give it a shot because I’ve been looking for ways to clear my mind of negativity so that I can focus on the positives. Going into the workshop, I had no idea what to expect,…

    Recipe the week: Lasagna

    Becoming a Woman

    Lately, I’ve been going through a lot of changes. Not so much my body, but more so a change in the things I enjoy and what I want out of life. I’ve noticed small changes within myself like the colors I like, the food I eat and even my interests. I feel like i’m evolving into a grown woman. These feelings have led me to a lot of reflecting with not only myself, but the ones around me. I’ve realized that my feelings toward certain friendships and relationships aren’t as they were before. For once in my life, i’m genuinely not bothered by the thought of losing a friendship. I’ve grown content with the…

    Doc Taylor’s Restaurant

    Happy Foody Friday, Pioneers! About two weeks ago, I went on a trip to Virginia Beach with my dad and boyfriend. We stayed in a hotel on the board walk so there was all types of food around us. When we arrived, we parked and walked past several different beach houses. There was one specifically that caught my eye. I remember seeing people standing in front of the house and saying to my boyfriend Brandon, “This house is adorable. I wonder what it’s like to live on the beach.” We continued to the hotel to check in and do some exploring. Breakfast: The next morning, Brandon looked up some local…

    DIY: Lip Scrub

    Happy Sunday, QT Pi’s! Today, I am going to be sharing a super easy DIY lip scrub that I found on Pinterest! I’m pretty much obsessed with Pinterest. It is my go to especially when I have questions about things pertaining to beauty. It’s just an overall great platform to spread ideas and try new things. I’m not sure if it’s because of the constant change in the weather, but lately, my lips have been super dry and cracked. I’m constantly putting on lip gloss, hoping it will help, but that hasn’t been doing much.  I decided to take things into my own hands and make something homemade that would cut costs and help bring my lips back to…
