Hello April!

Happy Friday and happy first day of APRIL! I have always loved when April rolls around because although spring has officially already started, I feel like April is the real start of spring. It’s finally starting to get nice outside, the trees are all starting to bud and the flowers are slowly but surely blooming (!!). The sundresses and sandals are for sure being brought back to life, and we are one month closer to summer. Yay! 

With the start of this month, I wanted to share some things that are on my radar for April and also some things that are catching my eye this month! 


First Monday in May // For those of you who may not know, The Met Gala is one of the most important events in the fashion world that is hosted to mark the opening of the Costume Institute's annual fashion exhibition. It is one of the most highly anticipated events and everyone who is anyone in the world of fashion, art, film, and music is in attendance. I am so very excited for this film to debut, as we will all get a behind-the-scenes look into a world that is so very different than our own. Anna Wintour might just be the most post powerful women in the fashion industry (she's amazing), and it will be beyond impressive to see what goes into pulling of as bash as important as this one. This will likely be the closest I will ever get to actually attending the Met Gala, and I will just have to be happy with that. 

Bittersweet Feelings // Attention all soon to be college graduates. If you read only one thing today (because lets face it at this point in time what's school?) please have it be this. I came across this again recently, but I still distinctly remember reading it at this time last year as I was heading into my final few weeks of college. It gave me all the feels then, and rereading it now still gives me goosebumps and makes me slightly emotional. I urge all of you soon to be college grads to make the absolute most of the next few weeks. They will sadly be over in the blink of an eye, but they also have the potential to be some of the absolute best. When I look back on my college years, I am lucky to say that they were all beyond amazing, but the last month or so of college was really the best. I will never forget the moments, the people, and the way I felt in those final weeks. Make the most of it because "you’ll not only miss the people you love but you’ll miss the person you are now at this time and this place, because you’ll never be this way ever again." 

You're Not Lost // And then there is this one, for all the twenty-somethings feeling lost and unsure in the post-grad world. Boy oh boy, one year really changes things up a bit doesn't it?  I just wrote this post about feeling a little bit lost and uncertain about the future, and this couldn't have been timed any more perfectly. Maxie does a hell of a good job reminding us that no matter what, we are never lost, but only finding our way. 

Overnight Oats // I am always on the look out for new breakfast options, so I was thrilled when I came across this. Although I can go for weeks eating the same thing for breakfast, I do like to switch it up a bit! I have made overnight oats in the past, but I like that this gives you a bunch of different recipes to try out. I made the strawberry-chocolate recipe and peanut butter-banana (fav), which were so good, and I am definitely going to be trying out the blueberry-almond oats! The best part (besides the taste) about overnight oats is how easy they are to make, and because you make them the night before, there is no excuse for not having something healthy to eat for breakfast. With summer quickly approaching, this is the perfect options for getting that bathing suit body! While we are on that subject,  I will be doing a post this month about getting in shape for the summer - be on the look out!
