Hi everyone!  I am so excited to share with you a few things that are close to my heart. Life goes by so fast and it is so easy to get caught up in hustle and bustle of everything. I feel like I am always either reminiscing about days past or concentrating on the days ahead and all that needs to be done.  I am trying really hard slow down and to live in the moment and really appreciate what every day has to offer to us. When we start to focus more on being happy where we are and not where we would rather be, you start to find peace and so much happiness in the present. So,  I decided to dedicate this blog post to the 5 tips to a happier you! Keep scrolling to see my 5 tips!  BTW…one of the things that make me so happy is being cozy!  And that includes my wardrobe and home too.  Today I’m also sharing some Nordstrom finds…All things Cozy! 






P.S. This coordinating jogger and sweatshirt combo has been so perfect for this hot then cold weather we are getting in San Diego lately. Seriously so soft and light weight too. I am wearing a small in both the top and the joggers. 

Tip 1: Celebrate the Small Wins

Sometimes in life we get so focused on the large milestones that we forget to celebrate all of the small wins that get us there.  With out the baby steps we take every day we wouldn’t accomplish our dreams. So take the time to focus on the small wins and give yourself a little pat on the back. 


Tip 2: Gratitude

One of the things that is really important to me is to take the time to be grateful. No matter what happens in life there is always something to be grateful for. We woke up today, the sun is shining, we are healthy. I’m grateful to hear my babies laughing in the other room. I am grateful I have family and friends that live nearby. I am so GRATEFUL for all of you because you allow me to do what I love everyday and share so many incredible things. I have a gratitude journal and I try to write in it as much as I can.  Some days are harder than others so it’s a great tool to remind myself that there is so much good out there. 


Tip 3: Self Love

It is so important to take some time for yourself. Cozy up on the couch in your softest pajamas with a cup of tea and a good book.   Dedicate at least 20 minutes a day to do something that just makes you happy. Paint your nails, do the face mask you’ve been meaning to do… light a candle and listen to your favorite podcast. Invest in yourself because you are worth it…I promise!


Tip 4: Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff

I tend to create self-induced stress trying to make everything perfect or accomplish more than is actually doable.  There is so much out of our control.  Ask yourself ” will this actually matter tomorrow…next week…or in a year?  In most cases the answer is no, and I’ve learned to let go of what I can’t control and shift my focus to what makes me grateful. 


Tip 5: Relationships

Girls, this is so important. Remember to love the people you love. What would all of our successes and failures be without the people we love around us? Friends and family lift us up and support us with open arms when we are down. Make sure to be that same person for them.  Nurture relationships that mean something to you because after all…we all need each other at the end of the day.



Thank you for taking the time to read the blog today. I hope it helps and I hope you spend some time this weekend celebrating you! See you soon friends!



P.s. A big thank you to Nordstrom for partnering on this post! Everything I share, as always, are my own thoughts and opinions.
