Sponsor Spotlight with Living Life Downtown

Sponsor Spotlight with Living Life Downtown Hi! I’m Taylor, the founder and writer at Living Life Downtown. I’m a marketing consultant by day, fashion blogger by night! I live in Washington, D.C. with my beau and my pup, and we spend our weekends finding new coffee places and going to dog parks. I’m fueled by wanderlust and coffee, and a lover of all things gold. What are your biggest struggles as a blogger? Definitely making time to balance work, my boyfriend, my dog, and blogging. I live in a city too, so it can be really hard to find a place to take photographs without a million people also walking around.

January Goals

Well Happy New Year everyone!! Hope you all had a fabulous New Year’s. We finally took down our Christmas decorations and it makes me sad because the living room looks so bare. Lol Have you taken down your decorations? As usual at the beginning of the month I like to set myself goals so let’s take a look at December Goals and see what my January Goals are. 

2016 Goals

Yesterday I talked to you guys about 2015: A Year in Review. Today I’m going to share with you my goals for 2016. Although I share monthly goals this is going to be what I really want to accomplish in 2016.  Travel – Brian and I have been talking about wanting to get out and go to different states next year with the boys for vacation. We are looking into going to Minnesota and New York so far. You guys should already know since I have been talking about going to New York City around November or December so my boys can see the city, visit my family and see Rockefeller Center. 

2015: A Year in Review

You guys there’s ONLY 4 days left of 2015. I can’t believe it. Today’s post is all about reflecting on the good and bad of 2015. This year has been quite good to not only me but my boys as well. Which I’m excited to share with you only the GOOD. Because let’s be honest here were starting a new year soon so why reflect on the bad right? Bring in the new year on a positive note.  Boyfriend and I hit 1 year on the 20th of Dec. Let me just tell you a little story about us. I’ve known Brian since high school. My sister and I went to different high schools because of where my house was located but I didn’t want to switch schools since I was already a junior high school when my parents purchased the house. My sister had a few classes with him and they became friends. So that’s how I knew of Brian. Well since high school Brian has been trying to get to go on a date with him but I had a boyfriend who turned to husband so 8 years. When I got divorced he didn’t waste no time lol…

The Happiness Boutique

Product Sampling: A complimentary necklace was given to me in return for this styling Affiliate Links: Clinking on some of these links may earn me a tiny commission.  I was beyond thrilled when The Happiness Boutique reached out to me and asked if I would style two of their earrings. I of course said yes since earrings are the only things I love to change up and actually wear. I instantly fell in love with the Dainty Flower Stud Earrings. The earring is so elegant and perfect not only for casual wear but for formal wear as well.  In majority of my pictures you’ll see that I love wearing these specifically because of how pretty, light weight and casual they are. They honestly complement anything I wear. It’s perfect for holiday wear. 

Currently Friday

Happy Friday!! I’m so excited for that there’s only 1 week until Christmas. We are so excited for the boys. We wish it was Christmas already so they could open their presents.  Anything fun planned for the weekend? I will be doing my friends makeup for a Christmas Party she is having through Beach Body, so I’m excited to get her all beautified (not that she isn’t).  So before we get into the post of the day, I also have a fun giveaway happening right now which will be going through December 31st and all you have to do is PURCHASE a Snowed In ($15) Coconut Oil and you’ll be entered to win the coordinating hand cream Snowed In Vanillamint which is no longer sold. The hand cream was VERY popular and it was sold out.
