Hello Dallas + Why I Moved From Seattle

It's been a little over a month since moving to Dallas, and I figure I owe you all a bit of an explanation for my move. I was a little quiet on why I was moving, and although I gave you all a brief explanation on Instagram back in October I wanted to delve a little deeper on the reasons why I left Seattle. As many of you know my blog is a place to be open and honest about my life and what's happening, and if even one of you can relate to what I was going through and I can somehow help you through it with my story, then great! This post is essentially for those of you who have moved somewhere and, well, absolutely knew it wasn't for you. But don't worry, my story has a happy ending!

Hey wonderful friends, long time no see! I've been in the process of moving over the past two months and things have been, well, crazy! I'm officially almost settled in at my new place in Dallas, but still waiting on a few big things to get delivered and then I can officially call this place home! In the meantime, I wanted to jump back here on the blog and get things started again. And what better way to do that then with an unboxing post from Babbleboxx?! If you're a regular around here you may have seen a few of these on the blog, and what can I say Babbleboxx always has such wonderful brands and products - and this box is specifically in honor of National Women's Month! So without further ado, let's get started! :)

24 Lessons To My Younger Self


I officially turned 24 on Thursday (my golden birthday) and it's been a BUSY week for me in my personal life. As you've probably noticed I took some time away from the blog since around Christmas and although I didn't mean for my absence to be this long and sporadic, I think it was a good move to take a break from the blog. I was getting overwhelmed, my heart wasn't in it for a little bit, but stepping away made me realize how passionate I truly am about my job! I've been coming up with some ideas for the future, some new projects, and how I can make TCB work better for both myself and you! On that note, today's post is one of the more personal ones. I'm sharing 24 lessons to my younger self that I've learned in my 24 years. Although the list is for me, it has lessons that I think are relevant to everyone at any age!

My Experience With The KonMari Method Of Organization

If you've been anywhere near social media recently I'm sure you've heard all about Marie Kondo and her magical ability to tidy up and organize. Her new Netflix show premiered on January 1st and everyone practically went crazy over the KonMari method and Marie's way of making you gain a new perspective on your living space and all the items you own. I had seen a bunch of stuff about the show on my social media feeds and decided to finally give the show a shot after getting fed up with my messy, overstuffed dresser drawers. Let me tell you guys up front, this show is going to basically be a hit or miss for you. I've heard some people talk about how Marie is "too cutesy" and "strange for talking to clothes" (don't worry, I'll explain in a bit!) but if you're willing to give her method a try I promise it can change how you view organization! Another warning, the photos I'm sharing aren't "goals" or even blogger-worthy today, I'm literally just sharing what my drawers look like after using the KonMari method. This post is definitely more information and personal experience based than anything!

Christmas is almost here! I know I keep saying that, but it's just because I'm so excited. I'm wrapping up all my last minute present shopping and I'm assuming most of you are too.

Easy Christmas Gift Wrapping Tutorial


Happy Monday everyone, there's only 15 more days until Christmas! I've been wrapping gifts like crazy because this year I have so many to give out. I even went to gift wrapping workshop at my local Paper Source store (not sponsored, just for fun!) to learn how to nicely wrap a Christmas present. Let's just say before this class I wasn't the best gift wrapper, haha! I polled you all on Instagram stories to see if you wanted to see a post on the tips I learned, and nearly all of you said yes. So, here we are! Now, these tips aren't for expert wrappers, mostly just beginners. If you can already wrap a nice looking gift, you may learn one or two things from this post, but don't expect to learn some crazy tutorial. These gifts are easy to wrap and make beautiful so anyone can do it! Also, a warning, this post is very photo heavy because I wanted to show each step of the process!
