Birdie’s Eye View • January + February 2015

February 22, 2015

It has been hard to find fun time  in the mountains of snow.  I am so over it already!  I cannot even contain my disdain for the snow and the frigid weather.  Living in Michigan is not an ideal place for someone who doesn’t like winter, but it’s a great place 8-9 months out of the year.  Despite the depressing feeling, I have found some fun and happy times in the winter.

My sister and my mom left to do a cheerleading competition with my niece.   My dad and I decided to have a Daddy/Daughter date at our favorite restaurant, Cracker Barrel.  Ugh, I love the pancakes and the french toast and the hot chocolate … this is making me hungry!

The popped collar rears its head yet again.  I am telling you, it works so well.  Don’t be afraid to try it!

I did my hair like my Winter Hair Care Routine.  This is the second day and it turned great, maybe even better than the first day.  If you haven’t seen that post, feel free to check it out because I go into detail.

Fitspiration • January 2015

February 8, 2015

I cannot believe January has come and left!

Well, it’s another year.  Another set of resolutions that I probably will fail.  But I am definitely going to try here!

Work It Out

Last year, I was definitely kicking butt!  I practically went to the gym 3-4 times a week!  This time around, I know I won’t be able to keep that up; I have a little more on my plate, but I am definitely going to be successful!

10 Things to Do on a Snow Day

February 2, 2015

I don’t know if I have mentioned this before, but I love snow days.  I feel that I have a great appreciation for them as I get older.  Snow days are basically free paid vacation time; they are better than paid holidays because snow days are completely unexpected.  Its like a surprise party for the rest of your week!

Last year during a snow day, I played video games and the next day my apartment flooded.  I have a good feeling about this snow day.  This going to be the best – at least in my mind.  So here are 10 things you can do during a snow day.

#FrostyVoxBox Unveiling!

January 28, 2015

I loved receiving the gifts to test from this Frosty Vox Box.  Many of the influenster boxes I have recieved have circled around a theme.  The last one I recieved was regarding weddings and being the most informed and prepared member of the bridal party!  This one is to prepare for the harsh and cold realities of a winter – or as I like to call it, Narnia.

Here is more information about the items from this Frosty Vox Box:

Bird’s Eye View • Winter Break 2014

January 7, 2015

Ugh, winter break is over officially!  Now, let’s be real; I started getting ready for work on Sunday – just saying!  I have to say one of the benefits of working in higher education is getting 2 weeks off from work! I know that’s childish but after the semester I had, I needed a break!

I literally watched Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime, and good old fashion DVDs!  It was pretty much the most relaxing I have ever been!  It was so much fun!

I took some time to organize a little bit; it was great to see things in their proper spaces.  I am still working on it but hopefully, I will knock this out before training at the end of this week!

Food is a necessity, ESPECIALLY since the cafeteria isn’t open yet! :)  When I went to Target, I saved around $40 on a bill that was over a $100.  Cartwheel is pretty much the best thing since sliced bread!

Lastly, these J. Crew slippers are flipping amazing!  They are like stylish, domesticated Uggs on your feet.  Get them while they are still available people! :)

How was your break?  Did you do anything fantastic?  Or did you just veg like me?
