Hey guys!! How’s your 2019 going so far? I hope it’s been rockin’ for you. 🙂 The start of my 2019 has been really amazing and I’ve been overwhelmed with gratitude. The results from my end of the year reader survey for 2018 were so uplifting for me to read. If you took a few minutes to fill it out, thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. Your feedback is very helpful to me and the community of CWS!
One of the requests that popped up in my reader survey results was to share more about my personal life. This is something I’m totally down to do! I have actually been wanting to write more personal posts, especially over the past year but certain circumstances held me back. I can be an over-sharer sometimes and that’s because I always want to remain transparent. Over the past year, I learned that some things you just can’t share with the whole world and that took me a lot to come to terms with thoroughly. Don’t worry – all is well with me and life is good, but there were definitely some bumps in the road last year that I couldn’t share about online. Though, I did share a snippet in my one of my recent blog posts: My Word & Phrase of the Year for 2019. 😉 Some things are meant to be one-on-one conversations so that context is fully understood.
Anyway! I do plan on sharing more of my personal life throughout this year. To be honest, I don’t think my life is all that exciting so it’s hard to write about it sometimes. I’m hoping to share more of my life in both sponsored content (sharing a brand/product that helps me personally) and of course, some heart-to-hearts. Most of my heart-to-hearts will be featured here in my monthly round-up, CWS Happenings.

This January has been my best January yet in terms of blogging. I have had some awesome doors open up for me and some great leads in the right direction, and gosh, I am just so thrilled to see what this year has in store.
I have also had a much-needed awakening when it comes to my brand and it’s been so motivating for me. I’ve been so motivated to the point where it’s really hard for me to put down my work. As someone who’s all about working hard but is also just as passionate about work-life balance, it’s been an interesting few weeks for me, haha. 🙂

WATCHING… As usual, I’m watching A LOT right now. I have also finished A LOT since I last chatted about what I was watching, haha. In the past couple of months, I have watched Ozark, Better Call Saul, and Queen of the South. I have always been a huge fan of thrillers, crime, and that sort of thing but after watching Breaking Bad a year ago, I have really gotten into pretty much any show that has to deal with drug cartels, haha. I just love the thrill! I also just finished You on Netflix which was wild. I’m glad it’s going to have a second season.
For TV… I’m watching Bull, NCIS, Seal Team, Grey’s Anatomy, The Bachelor, Manifest, and This is Us.
WEARING… This gorgeous white top from My Sister’s Closet! It’s the one I’m wearing in the photos above. It’s their Alayna top – has textured details, a peplum-like waist, button details, and bell sleeves. It fits me like a tunic since I’m petite. I’m wearing a size small. It’s only $26 but you can get 10% off anything at MSC with code: SUMMER10. 🙂
EATING… Lemonzest Luna Bars! They are delicious and have become one of my go-to snacks for my workday snack breaks.
EXCITED FOR… A huge project I’ve been working on. It’ll be launching next Monday! That’s all I can say for now but I can’t wait for y’all to see and learn more!
PLANNING… SO much. I’m trying to plan some travels for the upcoming months. My birthday is March 16th and it’s on a Saturday this year. Since St. Partick’s day is the following day, I’m hoping to have a weekend away to celebrate my birthday and being Irish. 😉
WORKING HARD ON… A top secret project. 😉 I’m in the beginning stages of a huge project that is going to take a while to create but I am so eager to get it done. I’m hoping I’ll be able to share more by the end of this quarter.
Well, that’s it for now, my friends! What have you been up to? How’s your 2019 going so far? Anything fun you’re working on? Let’s chat!
