Friday's List

Every single week, I spend hours....HOURS of my life online. I think we all do, whether we want to admit it or not. But as I was browsing online the other day I started thinking about all of the things I come across each week; just random things, but things that really either make me think or rethink things, or things that just simply make me smile.

Top Two...its B A C K

If you have been reading my blog for a couple of years, you might remember me doing a post every tuesday called Top Two. This goes a couple of years back. There was a gal who was a fantastic blogger who Hosted a Top Two Tuesday post, and so so so many other bloggers would join in on her fun!!! She would post a topic every tuesday, and it was always so much fun. If I remember correctly the girl who hosted it got sick or something, and took a break from blogging. From there, I just kept doing my own Top Two posts and it continued for a while. At some point along the way, I sort of got away from it. Well, today is the day that it starts back!!! It is Tuesday, right? haha, Kidding!!!
I wish SO bad I could remember the girls name and blog who started Top Two Tuesday, if you are a blogger and remember who it was, please feel free to comment and let me know!! Thanks in Advance!

So Here we GO!!! This weeks Top Two is all about 
Now, I have a TON of Instagram accounts that are my absolute favorites and my favorites do change probably weekly and maybe even more than once a week!
But as of right now, These are my TOP TWO!

Do you see all of that goodness.
This account had been in my toppies for a constant couple of months. So inspiring and she is such a beauty!
Obviously I follow more fashion accounts than accounts of people I actually know. I'm not at all ashamed to admit that. I love what I love {fashion obsessed, right here!} so I'm totally okay with it!


Bri Emery is seriously a design genius! Her instagram account is full of colorful images that are just so stunning!!! Here is a bit about this brilliant beauty!!!
{Creative director, blogger and travel addict living in los angeles. I also teach a fun photoshop class for bloggers called @iheartblogshop.}

What are your Top Two Instagram accounts??
Please share, i would love to check them out. And please, check out my two!!! You'll love them. I just know it!

Happy Tuesday Friends
I hope its a good one for you!

January 2015...on a MISSION!

I'm on mission friends. Why?? 
because I am going to H A W A I I 
I'm on a mission because I want to look the best I have ever looked in my life.

Since I've been back in Birmingham, I have been going to yoga or doing yoga at least 5 days a week. Just recently I exchanged two of those yoga days for Barre days. 
Barre is so g r e a t and very challenging. I love it. If you have worked out with me before, you know I can work myself to death and barely sweat a drop and it wasn't because I wasn't working hard. I was!!! But Barre, it really kicks my tail and whats crazy is, the movements you do are smaller than an inch!! IF you have never tried Barre, I really do suggest you giving it a go!!

On some Barre days, I will still go to yoga in the evening just because Yoga is really what I love. It's what works for my body. I missed it so much when I was living in Florence. I couldn't ever go to any classes because they were always while I was at work. but NOW I can go at whatever time I want to!!! Thank the LORD!!
I just L O V E it. I am being consistent and patient. I know I will see change!!

Since I am sending Gypsy to the island in November, I think that it will be the perfect timing for me to visit her. Of course I can't wait to spend time with Faith and Dan, but Gyp Gyp has become my little pal these last few months {she is laying right next to me as I type this...and she is snoozing away.} and I know giving her back is going to be super super tough on me. 

Man oh Man!!! I am definitely planning the start of 2015 off right!!! I have a photography conference in Destin, and then right after is Hawaii!!! Come on...the photography conference is technically Business related right?!?

Anyway, I am super stoked to go to Hawaii and I really really can NOT wait!

I'll keep you updated on my journey!
