I have never seen it rain this long before! I feel like I’m back in Seattle. But, because of all this rain I have been using it as an excuse to stay at home, get some work done, give my skin a break by going make-up free (this would explain why I’ve been a little MIA), and getting a little beauty pampering in! I was supposed to have a shoot this weekend to show you all a super cute outfit I put together but that got rescheduled due to the weather so instead of that planned post I want to share with you all some beauty habits…

    All Day I Dream About Sports.

    When I was thinking of what to title this outfit post, I instantly thought about the old school, classic Adidas saying, “All Day I Dream About Sports”. Fun fact, that saying actually used to be true for me. I was a sports fanatic growing up. My main sports that I played were soccer and tennis, with…
