Working with Purpose

Work With Purpose on Waketon Road

One of my goals for 2018 is to work with more of a purpose. What I mean by that is that I want there to be a goal or an intention behind my efforts. This is true for every area of my life, professionally, personally, blogging, etc. I felt like last year I stumbled upon a few successes but didn’t really apply myself in the most effective way. 2017 wasn’t...

Christmas Traditions - Waketon Road wearing Abercrombie

There are a few Christmas traditions that I will always look forward to. Decorating my home for the holidays is one of my favorite things about this time of year.

October Adventures with Old Navy

October Adventures on Waketon Road wearing Old Navy

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” ― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables. A quote from one of my favorite books and I statement I completely agree with. October is a magical month. It’s hard for me to put into words what I love about it. The obvious things like pumpkin flavored everything and changing leaves are wonderful, but it’s something else. I relate...

The Importance of Time With Fossil

The Importance of Time with Fossil on Waketon Road Blog

I’ve been a little under the weather since I got home from Nashville. I think it was my body’s way of telling me to slow down. After working for a straight six days, hopping on a plane for a whirlwind weekend and back home to go straight back to work, it’s no wonder my body shut down. I’m not the best at slowing down and taking time for myself. I...

A Great Little Black Dress

A Great Little Black Dress on Waketon Road at George Coffee and Provisions

In all my years I don’t think I have ever found a piece of clothing that makes me feel the way a great little black dress does. I have always loved wearing black. Black is so classic and looks great on everyone. It’s slimming, allows you to explore different pops of color and is acceptable for any occasion. Also, if it’s good enough for Coco Chanel, then sign me up!...

Set The Tone For The Week: Getting Through The “Monday Blues”

It’s been the most productive weekend! My weekends have been so busy lately with all of the travel and the projects I have been working on. I haven’t really been able to spend a weekend at home catching up on things around the house. I enjoy everything that goes into creating content for the blog, but I also love when a weekend of down time comes around. It feels so...

How To Deal With Negativity

I have been thinking a lot recently about the affect our thoughts have on our lives. When you make a conscious decision to be positive, you see that positivity reflected in your life. That’s the case with any emotion! If you decide you are going to be happy then that will be true. This is something I work on every day. Some days are easier than others, depending on the...

Work has been incredibly busy for me lately and I am also working on a few very exciting projects for Waketon Road. I love staying busy but I really need to remind myself to slow down and breathe. It’s so easy to...
