STH Happenings// Vol. 2

Happy Monday Y’all!! How have y’all been?! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and hopefully today isn’t too rough on you. I will say I am ready for another long weekend! So much has been going on lately in my life but I have been nothing short of being blessed. Find out the details below.


-I got engaged last week while on vacation. I was pretty involved in the ring picking out process but was still really surprised. My boyfriend and I have been together for seven years and it finally happened. I thought maybe he was messing with me recently with talking about getting married and being together forever. But nope! He was serious!

-I got to see my family this weekend to share the good news. My mom, his mom and my aunt knew about it so we shared with the rest of the family and everyone could not be more delighted for us.

-Also, while spending time with my family this past weekend, we celebrated my cousin graduating from high school. Crazy to think he’s all grown up.

-I received my first few packages for my upcoming collaborations and I could not be more excited. Y’all these brands are amazing and I could not be more blessed with them wanting to collaborate with me.

-I have been working really hard on getting more organized in general lately. I have a feeling that it will make a huge difference in all aspects of my life including on the blog.

  2. Aww, yay girl! I couldn’t be happier for you getting engaged! It’s the best season of life. I hope you enjoy every second of it! Your ring is gorgeous and it’s so awesome that you got to share the news with everyone.

    I am also excited for you and your collaborations. You are doing amazing things with them girlie! Of course, they’re just as blessed to work with you! I feel you on trying to get more organized. I’m trying with all my might to do the same thing. I actually spent time yesterday planning my week out and decorating my planner week. It feels so good to start the week with a plan and a clear mind. I also started weekly goals and am trying to figure out my morning routine to make me feel more ready to take on the day and be productive.

    You are so sweet, sharing my post. I’m so glad you enjoyed it and I can not thank you enough for featuring me on your Blogger Bliss Series. I enjoyed it so much.

    Happy Monday, Doll! I hope you have a wonderful week.

      Thank You Sweet Friend! It’s been awesome being engaged so far but a little stressful with wedding planning. It will be worth it in the end though. I am in love with my ring. It’s beautiful to say the least. I am very blessed.

      I could not have gotten the courage to get those collaborations without your help and guidance. I can not Thank You enough for your help! I am getting to work with some amazing brands and can’t wait to have those posts out to y’all. I just feel like my life has been one big blur lately and I really need to get that in check. So I am trying to be as organized as I can be. I just think that with me being so exhausted from work each day, that I do not want to do anything after work or even on the weekends. Really to get change that!

      I loved your post and was more than happy to share it! I loved featuring you on the Blogger Bliss series! Thank You for always supporting me! Hope you have a wonderful week!
