During 2018, Jay and I started working on and thinking of ways that we could live a cleaner lifestyle. In 2019, we started taking action and I thought I would share with you 7 simple ways that you can start living a cleaner lifestyle in 2019, to help you create a home and life that has a little less waste. For some of you, these 7 tips might be very basic and already well ingrained in your daily routine. However, I found that these things were easy actions that we have simply been overlooking the past few years.

For those of you who are looking to simplify and clean up your life in 2019, I hope you find this post helpful and inspiring!

7 Simple Ways That You Can Clean Up Your Everyday Life in 2019

 7 Tips For Living a Cleaner Lifestyle in 2019

Educate Yourself

The first step that really helped me start living a cleaner lifestyle was basically to start educating myself. Personally, I feel like this could have gone back a long way, but here are a few tools that I have used or that have inspired me to start this journey. 

First up, I read the book on Marie Kondo’s method a couple of years ago. It’s officially all the rage, after her new series on Netflix, that I’m dying to see. However, this book really highlighted the importance of living with less clutter and for me less clutter=cleaner living. I’m more inspired and feel more energized when I have less and what I have, I actually love and it’s good for me. You can read more on my thoughts on that book here

Secondly, I honestly think started to shop for our groceries at Whole Foods vs. another grocery store really encouraged me to be more mindful of the food and products we are using. Lastly, I have become quite obsessed with the Goop website, books, and podcast, over the past year. I know there are a ton of resources out there and I definitely have a lot of work to do. However, for the time being, I really love Goop!

Cut Back on Consumption

This one is probably one of my biggest struggles (other than eating healthy). I love to try new things and shopping, well, it’s one of my hobbies. However, this year Jay and I really want to save some money for our future and to do that, I need to personally get better about saving. Now, when I say I love shopping, I want to fully disclose that I do not own a credit card. Everything we purchase, other than our mortgage and our car loans, we pay in full. So, while I do like to shop, I’m not racking up debt which is very important. With that said, you can read more about our 2019 goals here.

I have been clearing out some of our unused items and selling them over on my Instagram shop page.  You can sell old items that you aren’t using anymore, donate unused products and clothing or also swap things with friends and family instead of shopping. As far as food goes, I have been trying to buy less with the hope of wasting less and this also helps with budgeting as well. 

Switch to Glass

I shared this in my recent favorites videos, but I purchased these glass bottles and we are trying not to purchase a ton of cases of water this year. The whole idea actually came from me wanting to drink more water. We drink a ton of bottles of water and then when we run out of bottled water, we stop drinking it out of pure laziness to fill up a glass of water. So, I decided to buy these glass bottles and fill them up myself.  So far, I have been drinking so much more water throughout the day and have been keeping our fridge stocked. If we continue to do well, I will buy another 6 pack!

Also, I have been trying to get rid of our plastic food storage containers. I found these and fell in love, so secretly this might be more about appearance, but I have really also preferred glass over plastic. It looks nice and just feels cleaner. I would definitely recommend switching to more glass if you are aiming to start living a cleaner lifestyle.

Recycle and Reuse

Our county is making it harder to recycle as our trash pick up service no longer offers it and our county is no longer recycling glass. However, over the past 6 months to a year, Jay and I began recycling and it was amazing to see how much of what we are throwing out is actually recyclable. We had more recycling that we did trash. 

Reusing things is also a great way to start living a cleaner lifestyle. I continue to use reusable shopping bags for my groceries and Whole Foods gives you a few cents off for each bag you use. These are so chic! Reusing old candle and food jars is a great way to store things and you don’t have to purchase new containers. Here is how I reuse mine.

Clean Beauty

I just wrote an entire blog post on this topic so I won’t harp on this too much. However, it’s amazing the number of toxic chemicals there are in our skincare and makeup products. I have been doing my best to weed some of these out of my daily routine. While I don’t know if I will ever have a fully clean beauty routine, I have definitely found a ton of great products that I will continue to use. You can read more about those products here.

Go for Organic and Sustainable Raised Foods

While my diet still has quite a bit of junk in it, I do try my best to buy organics meats and produce. Shopping at Whole Foods isn’t cheap, at least not for me. I’m pretty sure I’ve heard multiple people call it “Whole Paycheck” or “Whole Wallet” lol. Still, after indulging in there amazing quality of foods, I can’t bring myself to shop at certain other grocery stores anymore. That doesn’t mean I don’t eat those foods. I just don’t personally buy them for our house on a regular basis. 

With all of that said, buying organic foods that haven’t been raised or treated with chemicals and antibiotics is a great way to ease into living a cleaner lifestyle. You don’t have to eat tofu every day, but simply swap out your ingredients for a cleaner, more wholesome version.

7 Simple Ways That You Can Clean Up Your Everyday Life in 2019

Lifestyle

Last week, I shared a quick little survey for Timeless Taste readers and a solid portion of the responses requested more everyday lifestyle content. I thought I would start with my go-to power breakfast recipe. I’m not someone who generally loves breakfast food. Every now and then I will get a real craving for breakfast. But, honestly, most of the time I would rather have a big coffee and wait for lunch. 

On days when I need a solid meal in the morning, this is one of my go-to recipes. Although, I wouldn’t really consider this a recipe post. I guess maybe just more lifestyle content! Either way, I hope this inspires you when you are looking for something healthy in the morning. To be transparent, I think I jacked this recipe from an interview with Rosie Huntington Whiteley (we all know she’s my girl crush) and adapted it to fit my life!

My Go-To Power Breakfast

My go-to power breakfast looks like two boiled eggs, sliced and lightly salted with Himalayan pink salt. I love purchasing Vital Farms cage-free organic eggs. Cage-free is really important for me now. I didn’t fully understand the difference until last year.

1 slice of Barely Bread toasted with a little ghee spread on top and half of a smashed avocado. Also, a sprinkle of Himalayan pink salt!


I hope that even though this post was short, that you still found it helpful. If you like quicker reads, like this, be sure to let me know. I would love to include shorter posts if you enjoy them. Also, please leave any post requests in a comment below! This year, I would like to continue to include more lifestyle posts. I actually really love reading more lifestyle inspired content from other blogs. If there are any specific topics you would like to see, be sure to send them my way!

Beauty

There is no doubt in my mind that you have heard the phrase clean beauty come out of my mouth recently. After diving in the Goop world, and researching a little more about clean beauty products. I decided to go ahead and give some clean beauty products a try. You could now say that I’m a new convert to clean beauty or at the least, extremely fascinated.

I never really set out to trade in a bunch of products for a more “clean” version, but after giving a few a try I now find myself searching for more, and more, clean products. The story all began with an order from Sephora because I was desperate to try the Summer Friday’s Jet lag mask. I needed some shampoo, so I kept scrolling through the “clean at Sephora” category until I landed on Briogeo. I had heard do this brand before from some other bloggers and decided to give it ago. Here we are two months later and I’m even opting for clean nail polish

Now, I won’t say I live a perfect life, nor will I ever. But, I wanted to share with you 7 clean beauty products to swap right now because I have honestly had better results with these products lately than I have their chemical-filled competitors in the past. 

7 Clean Beauty Products to Swap Right Now

7 Clean Beauty Products to Swap Right Now

RMS “Un” Cover-Up

This concealer/foundation is incredibly pigmented and hides almost all of my spots. It builds beautifully and I have been wearing this in place of my foundation and concealer for the past month or so. It comes in a very small pot, so I would say if you have great skin and like lighter coverage, you could get away with using this as a foundation every day. If your skin is more troubled like mine, you might want something that is a little more full coverage, or you might use this up quickly. Either way, I have really been loving this and have seen such a huge improvement in my skin since I began using this. My skin is less irritated and less congested! I love it. I purchased the shade 22, but that’s a little too dark for me right now. 

RMS “Un”-Powder

After watching a review online that said you need the powder for sure if you have oily skin, I purchased the powder too. I have to give it to RMS, this is the most mattifying powder I have ever used. It really helps hold their foundation/concealer in place for me. However, with oily skin, I would do a mid-day touch up for both. This also doubles as dry shampoo! Not on paper, but when I was in desperate need, it worked wonders!

Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask

This mask, like I previously mentioned, got this entire clean beauty thing started. I had heard really great things about this mask, but honestly, I was hesitant. The versatility of this product is shocking. For someone with oily skin, I don’t find that it’s too much for my skin. I even use it as a moisturizer, sometimes, if my skin is feeling drier and under my eyes at night. I will even sometimes apply a thick layer on my lips as a little treatment for them. This product is amazingly versatile and can be used for almost anything!

Briogeo Shampoo and Conditioner

Oily skin and scalp have been something I have dealt with my entire life, mostly. My second-day hair looks oily and you can forget third-day hair altogether. I decided to give the Briogeo Blossom & Bloom Ginseng + Biotin Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner a try. And, if that isn’t a mouthful I don’t know what is! With an oily scalp and thin hair, you can guess that I usually go for volumizing shampoos. This set has truly been heaven sent for my hair and Jay’s too. It leaves my hair feeling soft, but not oily, and truly weightless. It smells amazing and is free of silicones, sulfates, parabens, artificial fragrances, and artificial dyes. Also, it is vegan-friendly and cruelty-free!

Briogeo Scalp Revival

I’m generally not one to care for my hair or do too much with it at all. I am all about voluminous waves, but that’s about the extent of my hair styling. I’m trying to get better about that! However, I loved the Briogeo Shampoo and Conditioner so much, that I was dying to try more products from them with the hopes that they would transform my hair and scalp. I decided to try the Scalp Revival next and of course, fell in love. Because of my oil issues, I was extremely hesitant of this one because I am the kind of gal that doesn’t put any kind of treatments on my hair and only applies conditioner from my ear down. I’m happy to report that this did not make my scalp oily or weigh my hair down. I don’t struggle with an itchy or dry scalp, but I will be sure to keep you posted on my hair growth/health soon!

Côte Nail Polish and Nail Polish Remover

One of my most frequently asked questions is about what nail polish color I’m wearing. For the past month, or so, it has been this one! I love this natural pink color form the Goop x Côte collab. It stays on my nails and looks so pretty and natural. They have a ton of color options over on the Côte website. Next on my list is to add the base and top coat from Côte. I also decided to purchase the nail polish remover. For no reason other than I was feeling extra bougie and it was expensive. But, honestly, I was completely shocked at how effective it is and how hydrated my nails are after using this remover. It is acetone free and has ingredients like rosemary leaf extract and aloe-vera juice.

You can see some of my other favorite nail colors here.

Farmacy Clean Bee Cleanser

I started using this cleanser a few months ago (it was in the first Sephora order) because the medicine and cream I was prescribed, by my dermatologist, was causing my skin to be extremely sensitive and irritated. I needed something that was gentle and didn’t make me oily. Hands down this cleanser is amazing. It removes all of my makeup and leaves my skin feeling tight and squeaky clean, which I love! I also love that it has a pump which for me feels much cleaner and easier to use. 


Clean beauty, and really just clean living in general, has been an obsession of mine lately. I never really had a clue what kind of chemicals and just really bad ingredients are in the products I put on my skin and use every day. While I still have a long way to go, I’m also proud to be making some positive and clean changes in my life!

I’m eager to learn more about clean beauty products and try out some new things in 2019. As with most things in life, I have a long list of clean products to try this year. I would love to know any of your recommendations and if you are interested in maybe seeing what’s on my clean beauty shopping list, just let me know!

7 Simple Ways That You Can Clean Up Your Everyday Life in 2019

January 4, 2019

Lifestyle

Looking back on last years goals and resolutions really makes me laugh a little. I took the goal setting thing ton an extreme. This year, while I’m feeling more motivated, I’m hoping to be a little less intense. While I believe that you need to be specific in setting your goals, I also now believe that the goals need to be sustainable and looking at things long term, really helps. Today, I want to share my 2019 goals with you.

I have had the book Rich Habits on my Amazon wishlist for quite some time now and thankfully, a kind relative purchased it for me for Christmas. Jay read it first and then I read it. It’s such a quick read but is packed full with good information. There is no doubt in my mind that this book came into our lives at the perfect moment. While I want to talk about this book more in-depth one day soon. I want to quickly mention how the first two “rich habits,” discussed in the book, shaped my goals setting this year.

Rich Habits

The first “Rich Habit” to implement is I will form good daily habits and follow these good daily habits every day. That seems simple enough. Right? For me, I think learning to have good habits would change my life and this is something I’m really leaning in to in 2019. Most of my goals, or resolutions, are really just simple habits that I need to change. The book encourages you to write down all of your bad habits and then, in a separate column, make those bad habits into good habits. After that, you just need to look at the good habits three times a day and start out by doing them for thirty days. Simple enough? It’s ok I’m a little intimidated too. But I can tell you how relieving and inspiring, it is to simply turn a bad habit into a good one. It seems so much more attainable to do something positive, rather than stop doing something negative. 

The second “Rich Habit” is I will set goals for each day, for each month, for each year and for the long term. I will focus on my goals each and every day. When we set out into a new year, it’s easy to just make goals for that year. This year, I want to make daily goals, monthly goals, yearly goals, and long-term goals. I want to make sure the good habits, and daily goals, I set for each day to help me reach my monthly goals, which in turn lead to yearly and long-term goals. 

While these seem like simple things that everyone knows when goal setting, for me it wasn’t so intuitional. With that said, one of my biggest goals of the year is to work on good daily habits. 

2019 Goals and Resolutions

2019 Goals and Resolutions

Work on Our Marriage and Plan For Our Future

Jay and I did a lot of this in 2018 and I want to continue doing this practice in 2019. I want to do some more serious financial planning and actually map out what we want our future to look like. I want us to talk about our family even more and dream of our children, before actually having them. In 2019, I want us to put our marriage before our families and maybe say no to a few things and choose us, over them. For me, I want 2019 to be the year of depth. I believe that this journey began for me in 2017 and 2018. I hope we spend our mornings, and nights, snuggling with Diesel, riding our bikes to the beach, traveling, swimming in my parent’s new pool, working on our home, gardening, cooking together and so much more!

Grow and Expand Timeless Taste

2018 was such a big year for Timeless Taste. Our site got a massive facelift, I expanded my revenue avenues (is that what they’re called?) and our audience nearly doubled. We are almost to 7,000 subscribers on Youtube and I have so many exciting ideas for 2019. My 2019 Goals for Timeless Taste include gaining additional branding photography clients, posting more on Youtube and growing my channel, be published more (we have been published twice here and here), and bringing on guest writers. Obviously, I have a few financial goals associated with this too!

Work on My Health Together With Jay

Last year, I began buying more and more organic groceries. This year I would like to work on continuing to limit the “unhealthy” things we bring into our home and use wholesome ingredients. I personally, would like to work on the portion size of my meals and drink a little less alcohol. Jay and I started taking tennis lessons last year and I would like to continue doing that this year as well. Hopefully, we will get to a point that we can actually play together! 

Although BBG was only a 12-week program for me last year, this year I would like to pick up some equipment and put together a little at home gym that Jay and I can use together. Neither one of us love working out, but we love spending time together and this would be something we could do together. My goal is to start out by exercising at least 3 times a week for 30 minutes each time.

Travel to Europe

I put this on my goals for last year, but I really want this to be the year that we travel to Europe together. Last year, we traveled more than we have in years, probably even ever. We got a little bite from the travel bug. I pretty sure he is still latched on. Which is fine by me! We are also making it a goal to travel somewhere once a quarter this year, even if it’s just a small weekend trip!

Continue Decorating Our Home

We made major progress on our home last year and I hope to continue working hard on it this year. I promise I will be revealing our closet soon, we need just a few details to finish it up! in 2019, I want to decorate our living/family room, dining room, and get our kitchen backsplash.


I could go on, and on, but I tried to summarize my 2019 Goals and Resolutions for you. I have more specific goals in each category but this kind of covers the broad items. If that makes sense?

7 Simple Ways That You Can Clean Up Your Everyday Life in 2019

January 2, 2019

Lifestyle

2018 was such an interesting year for Jay and me, and for the Timeless Taste brand. I feel like when I look at 2018 as a whole, there are so many things that I am proud of us for. Choices we made, things we did, moments we experienced and the emotions of it all, just send me over the top. 2018 was a difficult year for me, personally and professionally. I personally feel like I learned quite a few big lessons, over the past few years, and I think learning to trust and feel, but not be overly dependent is a huge part of that. 

In today’s post, I wanted to share with you 14 Things I am proud we did in 2018. I think I opened my mind and heart more in 2018 than I have in years or maybe even my whole life. I tried to take on and understand different perspectives. Balancing traditions we always cling to with new ways of thinking and living. Learning that you don’t have to be just one thing and that what you do professionally, is not what defines you as a person. For some of you, these things are a natural way of life, but for me, these are simply new ways that I am proud that I took on in 2018.

14 Things I Am Proud We Did in 2018

14 Things I Am Proud We Did in 2018

Traveled More

We traveled to Miami, The Bahamas, New York City, Atlanta, Ashville, and Charleston together. Did I miss anything? 

Started Recycling

Of course, a few months in, our local trash/recycle service notified us that they will no longer be accepting recycled items. Really?!

Aimed to Eat More Organic, Whole Foods

We eating primarily organic meats, vegetables, fruits and more when we are at home.

Started using “Clean” Beauty Products

This happened on the tail end of 2018. However, I’m so excited to have found some really amazing clean beauty products.

Read More

In 2018, I read 17 books. I think that is more than I read in my first 22 years of life combined.

Worked on Work-Life Balance

Jay is such a hard worker and I’m proud of him for setting some new boundaries last year.

Took on Things We Were Scared of/Thought We Couldn’t Handle

Business wise, relationship wise, etc. We learned how to push our limits and rest in uncertainty. 

Relied on Each Other

More than ever… I can’t show enough gratitude to Jay for the support he has shown me this year. It has been a tough one for me emotionally and mentally.

Planned for Our Future

We have had conversations about children, finances and the lifestyle we want to live in the future.

Bought Our First Investment/Commercial Property

Speaking of which, we purchased our first piece of investment property that happens to be commercial real estate. What a blessing!

Began Learning to Trust Gods Timing

This one was extremely hard for me and I’m still working on this. However, I have learned some much this year about his promises and although it might seem like his timing is difficult, it’s more perfect than we could ever imagine.

Worked on Our Marriage

I don’t think marriage is something that just happens and remains perfect. As seasons of your life change and years go by, I think it’s important to continue working on your marriage and putting time into your spouse. This year we did a lot fo that!

Let Go of a Few Bad Habits

For me personally, I stopped looking at Facebook so much and started understanding the dangers of what I consume visually, online, on a daily basis.

Put A Little More Distance to People in our Lives 

Our family and friends mean a huge deal to me. My relationship with family is one of the most important parts of my life. However, one of the hardest things I have had to learn as an adult is accepting when too much is too much

Jay and I made the reactive decision to put a little distance between ourselves and some people in our lives, to spend more time on our individual sanity and the health of our marriage. 


What were some of the decisions you made in 2018 that you are proud of? I’m so excited for a new year and the opportunity to start fresh and continue working on myself and the relationships in my life. I am excited to hear what you are proud of from 2018 and hope to learn from you!

I decided to try the Scalp Revival next and of course, fell in love. Because of my oil issues, I was extremely hesitant of this one because I am the kind of gal that doesn’t put any kind of treatments on my hair and only applies conditioner from my ear down. I’m happy to report that this did not make my scalp oily or weigh my hair down. I don’t struggle with an itchy or dry scalp, but I will be sure to keep you posted on my hair growth/health soon!

Côte Nail Polish and Nail Polish Remover

One of my most frequently asked questions is about what nail polish color I’m wearing. For the past month, or so, it has been this one! I love this natural pink color form the Goop x Côte collab. It stays on my nails and looks so pretty and natural. They have a ton of color options over on the Côte website. Next on my list is to add the base and top coat from Côte. I also decided to purchase the nail polish remover. For no reason other than I was feeling extra bougie and it was expensive. But, honestly, I was completely shocked at how effective it is and how hydrated my nails are after using this remover. It is acetone free and has ingredients like rosemary leaf extract and aloe-vera juice.

You can see some of my other favorite nail colors here.

Farmacy Clean Bee Cleanser

I started using this cleanser a few months ago (it was in the first Sephora order) because the medicine and cream I was prescribed, by my dermatologist, was causing my skin to be extremely sensitive and irritated. I needed something that was gentle and didn’t make me oily. Hands down this cleanser is amazing. It removes all of my makeup and leaves my skin feeling tight and squeaky clean, which I love! I also love that it has a pump which for me feels much cleaner and easier to use. 


Clean beauty, and really just clean living in general, has been an obsession of mine lately. I never really had a clue what kind of chemicals and just really bad ingredients are in the products I put on my skin and use every day. While I still have a long way to go, I’m also proud to be making some positive and clean changes in my life!

I’m eager to learn more about clean beauty products and try out some new things in 2019. As with most things in life, I have a long list of clean products to try this year. I would love to know any of your recommendations and if you are interested in maybe seeing what’s on my clean beauty shopping list, just let me know!

Lifestyle

Looking back on last years goals and resolutions really makes me laugh a little. I took the goal setting thing ton an extreme. This year, while I’m feeling more motivated, I’m hoping to be a little less intense. While I believe that you need to be specific in setting your goals, I also now believe that the goals need to be sustainable and looking at things long term, really helps. Today, I want to share my 2019 goals with you.

I have had the book Rich Habits on my Amazon wishlist for quite some time now and thankfully, a kind relative purchased it for me for Christmas. Jay read it first and then I read it. It’s such a quick read but is packed full with good information. There is no doubt in my mind that this book came into our lives at the perfect moment. While I want to talk about this book more in-depth one day soon. I want to quickly mention how the first two “rich habits,” discussed in the book, shaped my goals setting this year.

Rich Habits

The first “Rich Habit” to implement is I will form good daily habits and follow these good daily habits every day. That seems simple enough. Right? For me, I think learning to have good habits would change my life and this is something I’m really leaning in to in 2019. Most of my goals, or resolutions, are really just simple habits that I need to change. The book encourages you to write down all of your bad habits and then, in a separate column, make those bad habits into good habits. After that, you just need to look at the good habits three times a day and start out by doing them for thirty days. Simple enough? It’s ok I’m a little intimidated too. But I can tell you how relieving and inspiring, it is to simply turn a bad habit into a good one. It seems so much more attainable to do something positive, rather than stop doing something negative. 

The second “Rich Habit” is I will set goals for each day, for each month, for each year and for the long term. I will focus on my goals each and every day. When we set out into a new year, it’s easy to just make goals for that year. This year, I want to make daily goals, monthly goals, yearly goals, and long-term goals. I want to make sure the good habits, and daily goals, I set for each day to help me reach my monthly goals, which in turn lead to yearly and long-term goals. 

While these seem like simple things that everyone knows when goal setting, for me it wasn’t so intuitional. With that said, one of my biggest goals of the year is to work on good daily habits. 

2019 Goals and Resolutions

2019 Goals and Resolutions

Work on Our Marriage and Plan For Our Future

Jay and I did a lot of this in 2018 and I want to continue doing this practice in 2019. I want to do some more serious financial planning and actually map out what we want our future to look like. I want us to talk about our family even more and dream of our children, before actually having them. In 2019, I want us to put our marriage before our families and maybe say no to a few things and choose us, over them. For me, I want 2019 to be the year of depth. I believe that this journey began for me in 2017 and 2018. I hope we spend our mornings, and nights, snuggling with Diesel, riding our bikes to the beach, traveling, swimming in my parent’s new pool, working on our home, gardening, cooking together and so much more!

Grow and Expand Timeless Taste

2018 was such a big year for Timeless Taste. Our site got a massive facelift, I expanded my revenue avenues (is that what they’re called?) and our audience nearly doubled. We are almost to 7,000 subscribers on Youtube and I have so many exciting ideas for 2019. My 2019 Goals for Timeless Taste include gaining additional branding photography clients, posting more on Youtube and growing my channel, be published more (we have been published twice here and here), and bringing on guest writers. Obviously, I have a few financial goals associated with this too!

Work on My Health Together With Jay

Last year, I began buying more and more organic groceries. This year I would like to work on continuing to limit the “unhealthy” things we bring into our home and use wholesome ingredients. I personally, would like to work on the portion size of my meals and drink a little less alcohol. Jay and I started taking tennis lessons last year and I would like to continue doing that this year as well. Hopefully, we will get to a point that we can actually play together! 

Although BBG was only a 12-week program for me last year, this year I would like to pick up some equipment and put together a little at home gym that Jay and I can use together. Neither one of us love working out, but we love spending time together and this would be something we could do together. My goal is to start out by exercising at least 3 times a week for 30 minutes each time.

Travel to Europe

I put this on my goals for last year, but I really want this to be the year that we travel to Europe together. Last year, we traveled more than we have in years, probably even ever. We got a little bite from the travel bug. I pretty sure he is still latched on. Which is fine by me! We are also making it a goal to travel somewhere once a quarter this year, even if it’s just a small weekend trip!

Continue Decorating Our Home

We made major progress on our home last year and I hope to continue working hard on it this year. I promise I will be revealing our closet soon, we need just a few details to finish it up! in 2019, I want to decorate our living/family room, dining room, and get our kitchen backsplash.


I could go on, and on, but I tried to summarize my 2019 Goals and Resolutions for you. I have more specific goals in each category but this kind of covers the broad items. If that makes sense?

Lifestyle

2018 was such an interesting year for Jay and me, and for the Timeless Taste brand. I feel like when I look at 2018 as a whole, there are so many things that I am proud of us for. Choices we made, things we did, moments we experienced and the emotions of it all, just send me over the top. 2018 was a difficult year for me, personally and professionally. I personally feel like I learned quite a few big lessons, over the past few years, and I think learning to trust and feel, but not be overly dependent is a huge part of that. 

In today’s post, I wanted to share with you 14 Things I am proud we did in 2018. I think I opened my mind and heart more in 2018 than I have in years or maybe even my whole life. I tried to take on and understand different perspectives. Balancing traditions we always cling to with new ways of thinking and living. Learning that you don’t have to be just one thing and that what you do professionally, is not what defines you as a person. For some of you, these things are a natural way of life, but for me, these are simply new ways that I am proud that I took on in 2018.

14 Things I Am Proud We Did in 2018

14 Things I Am Proud We Did in 2018

Traveled More

We traveled to Miami, The Bahamas, New York City, Atlanta, Ashville, and Charleston together. Did I miss anything? 

Started Recycling

Of course, a few months in, our local trash/recycle service notified us that they will no longer be accepting recycled items. Really?!

Aimed to Eat More Organic, Whole Foods

We eating primarily organic meats, vegetables, fruits and more when we are at home.

Started using “Clean” Beauty Products

This happened on the tail end of 2018. However, I’m so excited to have found some really amazing clean beauty products.

Read More

In 2018, I read 17 books. I think that is more than I read in my first 22 years of life combined.

Worked on Work-Life Balance

Jay is such a hard worker and I’m proud of him for setting some new boundaries last year.

Took on Things We Were Scared of/Thought We Couldn’t Handle

Business wise, relationship wise, etc. We learned how to push our limits and rest in uncertainty. 

Relied on Each Other

More than ever… I can’t show enough gratitude to Jay for the support he has shown me this year. It has been a tough one for me emotionally and mentally.

Planned for Our Future

We have had conversations about children, finances and the lifestyle we want to live in the future.

Bought Our First Investment/Commercial Property

Speaking of which, we purchased our first piece of investment property that happens to be commercial real estate. What a blessing!

Began Learning to Trust Gods Timing

This one was extremely hard for me and I’m still working on this. However, I have learned some much this year about his promises and although it might seem like his timing is difficult, it’s more perfect than we could ever imagine.

Worked on Our Marriage

I don’t think marriage is something that just happens and remains perfect. As seasons of your life change and years go by, I think it’s important to continue working on your marriage and putting time into your spouse. This year we did a lot fo that!

Let Go of a Few Bad Habits

For me personally, I stopped looking at Facebook so much and started understanding the dangers of what I consume visually, online, on a daily basis.

Put A Little More Distance to People in our Lives 

Our family and friends mean a huge deal to me. My relationship with family is one of the most important parts of my life. However, one of the hardest things I have had to learn as an adult is accepting when too much is too much

Jay and I made the reactive decision to put a little distance between ourselves and some people in our lives, to spend more time on our individual sanity and the health of our marriage. 


What were some of the decisions you made in 2018 that you are proud of? I’m so excited for a new year and the opportunity to start fresh and continue working on myself and the relationships in my life. I am excited to hear what you are proud of from 2018 and hope to learn from you!

The Home

Now that Jay and I have our own house, I say that like we just moved in (haha), I really love receiving gifts for the home. Whether you are gifting for a friend, relative, or host, giving gifts for the home can be a great way to treat someone without being too personal. For my “home” gift guide this year, I rounded up a few of our personal favorites, including items we own, as well as a few pretty additions! 

Gifts For The Home

The image below is shoppable! Just click on the item you are interested in to see more!

Candles + Accessories

One of my favorite gifts, or things to buy, is a really great candle. I love burning candles in our home and Diptyque candles are my favorite. They are definitely more expensive, but they burn so much longer than the average candle. If you know a candle lover, they would probably love some beautiful matches or a candle wick trimmer.

Books

I love books so naturally, I had to include a few books! Coffee table books make beautiful gifts as do cookbooks and novels, if you what is on there wishlist! Here are a few of my personal favorite books. If you love dogs, and beautiful coffee table books, this is a must!

Picture Frames

Nothing is more special than a beautifully framed photo. Printing out a great photo and placing it in a nice frame, really makes for a great gift! 

Furniture

This is obviously a very big gift. But, if you know any newlyweds or anyone who just moved into a house, they would probably appreciate a small amount of money directed towards a furniture purchase!

Pillows + Throws

I’m a decorative pillow girl, so of course, I had to include this beautiful pillow. I love the Little Design Co. I have leopard print pillows from them and adore them! I might add some of these to our bed in our master bedroom! Throw blankets or big comforters make a great gift, depending on who you are buying for!

Dyson Animal Vaccum 

This is probably the least pretty item on the list. However, I couldn’t forget the Dyson Animal Vaccum. We recently purchased this and it has completely changed my cleaning routine. It’s so easy and effective. A complete game changer!

Trays + Accessories 

Lastly, I love a good tray and they are so versatile. You can display them on your coffee table, ottoman, bedside table, etc. You name it! I like stacking things like books on mine or placing a beautiful candle and a bud vase. I constantly move my trays around and use them to decorate. Little accessories pair perfectly on trays!

 


I hope you enjoyed this post and find it helpful when gift shopping! We a few of these items and love them! This planter was such a great purchase, it is made so well! If you have any questions, please just let me know!

Beauty

There is no doubt in my mind that you have heard the phrase clean beauty come out of my mouth recently. After diving in the Goop world, and researching a little more about clean beauty products. I decided to go ahead and give some clean beauty products a try. You could now say that I’m a new convert to clean beauty or at the least, extremely fascinated.

I never really set out to trade in a bunch of products for a more “clean” version, but after giving a few a try I now find myself searching for more, and more, clean products. The story all began with an order from Sephora because I was desperate to try the Summer Friday’s Jet lag mask. I needed some shampoo, so I kept scrolling through the “clean at Sephora” category until I landed on Briogeo. I had heard do this brand before from some other bloggers and decided to give it ago. Here we are two months later and I’m even opting for clean nail polish

Now, I won’t say I live a perfect life, nor will I ever. But, I wanted to share with you 7 clean beauty products to swap right now because I have honestly had better results with these products lately than I have their chemical-filled competitors in the past. 

7 Clean Beauty Products to Swap Right Now

7 Clean Beauty Products to Swap Right Now

RMS “Un” Cover-Up

This concealer/foundation is incredibly pigmented and hides almost all of my spots. It builds beautifully and I have been wearing this in place of my foundation and concealer for the past month or so. It comes in a very small pot, so I would say if you have great skin and like lighter coverage, you could get away with using this as a foundation every day. If your skin is more troubled like mine, you might want something that is a little more full coverage, or you might use this up quickly. Either way, I have really been loving this and have seen such a huge improvement in my skin since I began using this. My skin is less irritated and less congested! I love it. I purchased the shade 22, but that’s a little too dark for me right now. 

RMS “Un”-Powder

After watching a review online that said you need the powder for sure if you have oily skin, I purchased the powder too. I have to give it to RMS, this is the most mattifying powder I have ever used. It really helps hold their foundation/concealer in place for me. However, with oily skin, I would do a mid-day touch up for both. This also doubles as dry shampoo! Not on paper, but when I was in desperate need, it worked wonders!

Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask

This mask, like I previously mentioned, got this entire clean beauty thing started. I had heard really great things about this mask, but honestly, I was hesitant. The versatility of this product is shocking. For someone with oily skin, I don’t find that it’s too much for my skin. I even use it as a moisturizer, sometimes, if my skin is feeling drier and under my eyes at night. I will even sometimes apply a thick layer on my lips as a little treatment for them. This product is amazingly versatile and can be used for almost anything!

Briogeo Shampoo and Conditioner

Oily skin and scalp have been something I have dealt with my entire life, mostly. My second-day hair looks oily and you can forget third-day hair altogether. I decided to give the Briogeo Blossom & Bloom Ginseng + Biotin Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner a try. And, if that isn’t a mouthful I don’t know what is! With an oily scalp and thin hair, you can guess that I usually go for volumizing shampoos. This set has truly been heaven sent for my hair and Jay’s too. It leaves my hair feeling soft, but not oily, and truly weightless. It smells amazing and is free of silicones, sulfates, parabens, artificial fragrances, and artificial dyes. Also, it is vegan-friendly and cruelty-free!

Briogeo Scalp Revival

I’m generally not one to care for my hair or do too much with it at all. I am all about voluminous waves, but that’s about the extent of my hair styling. I’m trying to get better about that! However, I loved the Briogeo Shampoo and Conditioner so much, that I was dying to try more products from them with the hopes that they would transform my hair and scalp. I decided to try the Scalp Revival next and of course, fell in love. Because of my oil issues, I was extremely hesitant of this one because I am the kind of gal that doesn’t put any kind of treatments on my hair and only applies conditioner from my ear down. I’m happy to report that this did not make my scalp oily or weigh my hair down. I don’t struggle with an itchy or dry scalp, but I will be sure to keep you posted on my hair growth/health soon!

Speaking of which, we purchased our first piece of investment property that happens to be commercial real estate. What a blessing!

Began Learning to Trust Gods Timing

This one was extremely hard for me and I’m still working on this. However, I have learned some much this year about his promises and although it might seem like his timing is difficult, it’s more perfect than we could ever imagine.

Worked on Our Marriage

I don’t think marriage is something that just happens and remains perfect. As seasons of your life change and years go by, I think it’s important to continue working on your marriage and putting time into your spouse. This year we did a lot fo that!

Let Go of a Few Bad Habits

For me personally, I stopped looking at Facebook so much and started understanding the dangers of what I consume visually, online, on a daily basis.

Put A Little More Distance to People in our Lives 

Our family and friends mean a huge deal to me. My relationship with family is one of the most important parts of my life. However, one of the hardest things I have had to learn as an adult is accepting when too much is too much

Jay and I made the reactive decision to put a little distance between ourselves and some people in our lives, to spend more time on our individual sanity and the health of our marriage. 


What were some of the decisions you made in 2018 that you are proud of? I’m so excited for a new year and the opportunity to start fresh and continue working on myself and the relationships in my life. I am excited to hear what you are proud of from 2018 and hope to learn from you!

The Home

Now that Jay and I have our own house, I say that like we just moved in (haha), I really love receiving gifts for the home. Whether you are gifting for a friend, relative, or host, giving gifts for the home can be a great way to treat someone without being too personal. For my “home” gift guide this year, I rounded up a few of our personal favorites, including items we own, as well as a few pretty additions! 

Gifts For The Home

The image below is shoppable! Just click on the item you are interested in to see more!

Candles + Accessories

One of my favorite gifts, or things to buy, is a really great candle. I love burning candles in our home and Diptyque candles are my favorite. They are definitely more expensive, but they burn so much longer than the average candle. If you know a candle lover, they would probably love some beautiful matches or a candle wick trimmer.

Books

I love books so naturally, I had to include a few books! Coffee table books make beautiful gifts as do cookbooks and novels, if you what is on there wishlist! Here are a few of my personal favorite books. If you love dogs, and beautiful coffee table books, this is a must!

Picture Frames

Nothing is more special than a beautifully framed photo. Printing out a great photo and placing it in a nice frame, really makes for a great gift! 

Furniture

This is obviously a very big gift. But, if you know any newlyweds or anyone who just moved into a house, they would probably appreciate a small amount of money directed towards a furniture purchase!

Pillows + Throws

I’m a decorative pillow girl, so of course, I had to include this beautiful pillow. I love the Little Design Co. I have leopard print pillows from them and adore them! I might add some of these to our bed in our master bedroom! Throw blankets or big comforters make a great gift, depending on who you are buying for!

Dyson Animal Vaccum 

This is probably the least pretty item on the list. However, I couldn’t forget the Dyson Animal Vaccum. We recently purchased this and it has completely changed my cleaning routine. It’s so easy and effective. A complete game changer!

Trays + Accessories 

Lastly, I love a good tray and they are so versatile. You can display them on your coffee table, ottoman, bedside table, etc. You name it! I like stacking things like books on mine or placing a beautiful candle and a bud vase. I constantly move my trays around and use them to decorate. Little accessories pair perfectly on trays!

 


I hope you enjoyed this post and find it helpful when gift shopping! We a few of these items and love them! This planter was such a great purchase, it is made so well! If you have any questions, please just let me know!

If you’re like me, sometimes shopping for the man in your life can be a little challenging. Over the years, I have gotten a little bit better about shopping for Jay and have found a few gifts that he really loves. This year, I decided to compile a smaller gift guide for men, including some of Jay’s favorite items and a few other really fun gift ideas! You can see our gift guides from last year here.

I wanted to keep things more to the point this year. I keep seeing a million different gift guides, for literally everything, with so many options. I’m someone who easily gets overwhelmed and I thought I might not be the only one out there that feels that way. This year, I’m going to try to make my gift guides more concise. If you have any questions, about gifts or any of these products, please just let me know! I am happy to go further into detail and thought about just doing that over on my Youtube Channel.

Lifestyle

Looking back on last years goals and resolutions really makes me laugh a little. I took the goal setting thing ton an extreme. This year, while I’m feeling more motivated, I’m hoping to be a little less intense. While I believe that you need to be specific in setting your goals, I also now believe that the goals need to be sustainable and looking at things long term, really helps. Today, I want to share my 2019 goals with you.

I have had the book Rich Habits on my Amazon wishlist for quite some time now and thankfully, a kind relative purchased it for me for Christmas. Jay read it first and then I read it. It’s such a quick read but is packed full with good information. There is no doubt in my mind that this book came into our lives at the perfect moment. While I want to talk about this book more in-depth one day soon. I want to quickly mention how the first two “rich habits,” discussed in the book, shaped my goals setting this year.

Rich Habits

The first “Rich Habit” to implement is I will form good daily habits and follow these good daily habits every day. That seems simple enough. Right? For me, I think learning to have good habits would change my life and this is something I’m really leaning in to in 2019. Most of my goals, or resolutions, are really just simple habits that I need to change. The book encourages you to write down all of your bad habits and then, in a separate column, make those bad habits into good habits. After that, you just need to look at the good habits three times a day and start out by doing them for thirty days. Simple enough? It’s ok I’m a little intimidated too. But I can tell you how relieving and inspiring, it is to simply turn a bad habit into a good one. It seems so much more attainable to do something positive, rather than stop doing something negative. 

The second “Rich Habit” is I will set goals for each day, for each month, for each year and for the long term. I will focus on my goals each and every day. When we set out into a new year, it’s easy to just make goals for that year. This year, I want to make daily goals, monthly goals, yearly goals, and long-term goals. I want to make sure the good habits, and daily goals, I set for each day to help me reach my monthly goals, which in turn lead to yearly and long-term goals. 

While these seem like simple things that everyone knows when goal setting, for me it wasn’t so intuitional. With that said, one of my biggest goals of the year is to work on good daily habits. 

2019 Goals and Resolutions

2019 Goals and Resolutions

Work on Our Marriage and Plan For Our Future

Jay and I did a lot of this in 2018 and I want to continue doing this practice in 2019. I want to do some more serious financial planning and actually map out what we want our future to look like. I want us to talk about our family even more and dream of our children, before actually having them. In 2019, I want us to put our marriage before our families and maybe say no to a few things and choose us, over them. For me, I want 2019 to be the year of depth. I believe that this journey began for me in 2017 and 2018. I hope we spend our mornings, and nights, snuggling with Diesel, riding our bikes to the beach, traveling, swimming in my parent’s new pool, working on our home, gardening, cooking together and so much more!

Grow and Expand Timeless Taste

2018 was such a big year for Timeless Taste. Our site got a massive facelift, I expanded my revenue avenues (is that what they’re called?) and our audience nearly doubled. We are almost to 7,000 subscribers on Youtube and I have so many exciting ideas for 2019. My 2019 Goals for Timeless Taste include gaining additional branding photography clients, posting more on Youtube and growing my channel, be published more (we have been published twice here and here), and bringing on guest writers. Obviously, I have a few financial goals associated with this too!

Work on My Health Together With Jay

Last year, I began buying more and more organic groceries. This year I would like to work on continuing to limit the “unhealthy” things we bring into our home and use wholesome ingredients. I personally, would like to work on the portion size of my meals and drink a little less alcohol. Jay and I started taking tennis lessons last year and I would like to continue doing that this year as well. Hopefully, we will get to a point that we can actually play together! 

Although BBG was only a 12-week program for me last year, this year I would like to pick up some equipment and put together a little at home gym that Jay and I can use together. Neither one of us love working out, but we love spending time together and this would be something we could do together. My goal is to start out by exercising at least 3 times a week for 30 minutes each time.

Travel to Europe

I put this on my goals for last year, but I really want this to be the year that we travel to Europe together. Last year, we traveled more than we have in years, probably even ever. We got a little bite from the travel bug. I pretty sure he is still latched on. Which is fine by me! We are also making it a goal to travel somewhere once a quarter this year, even if it’s just a small weekend trip!

Continue Decorating Our Home

We made major progress on our home last year and I hope to continue working hard on it this year. I promise I will be revealing our closet soon, we need just a few details to finish it up! in 2019, I want to decorate our living/family room, dining room, and get our kitchen backsplash.


I could go on, and on, but I tried to summarize my 2019 Goals and Resolutions for you. I have more specific goals in each category but this kind of covers the broad items. If that makes sense?

2018 was such an interesting year for Jay and me, and for the Timeless Taste brand. I feel like when I look at 2018 as a whole, there are so many things that I am proud of us for. Choices we made, things we did, moments we experienced and the emotions of it all, just send me over the top. 2018 was a difficult year for me, personally and professionally. I personally feel like I learned quite a few big lessons, over the past few years, and I think learning to trust and feel, but not be overly dependent is a huge part of that. 

In today’s post, I wanted to share with you 14 Things I am proud we did in 2018. I think I opened my mind and heart more in 2018 than I have in years or maybe even my whole life. I tried to take on and understand different perspectives. Balancing traditions we always cling to with new ways of thinking and living. Learning that you don’t have to be just one thing and that what you do professionally, is not what defines you as a person. For some of you, these things are a natural way of life, but for me, these are simply new ways that I am proud that I took on in 2018.

14 Things I Am Proud We Did in 2018

14 Things I Am Proud We Did in 2018

Traveled More

We traveled to Miami, The Bahamas, New York City, Atlanta, Ashville, and Charleston together. Did I miss anything? 

Started Recycling

Of course, a few months in, our local trash/recycle service notified us that they will no longer be accepting recycled items. Really?!

Aimed to Eat More Organic, Whole Foods

We eating primarily organic meats, vegetables, fruits and more when we are at home.

Started using “Clean” Beauty Products

This happened on the tail end of 2018. However, I’m so excited to have found some really amazing clean beauty products.

Read More

In 2018, I read 17 books. I think that is more than I read in my first 22 years of life combined.

Worked on Work-Life Balance

Jay is such a hard worker and I’m proud of him for setting some new boundaries last year.

Took on Things We Were Scared of/Thought We Couldn’t Handle

Business wise, relationship wise, etc. We learned how to push our limits and rest in uncertainty. 

Relied on Each Other

More than ever… I can’t show enough gratitude to Jay for the support he has shown me this year. It has been a tough one for me emotionally and mentally.

Planned for Our Future

We have had conversations about children, finances and the lifestyle we want to live in the future.

Bought Our First Investment/Commercial Property

Speaking of which, we purchased our first piece of investment property that happens to be commercial real estate. What a blessing!

Began Learning to Trust Gods Timing

This one was extremely hard for me and I’m still working on this. However, I have learned some much this year about his promises and although it might seem like his timing is difficult, it’s more perfect than we could ever imagine.

Worked on Our Marriage

I don’t think marriage is something that just happens and remains perfect. As seasons of your life change and years go by, I think it’s important to continue working on your marriage and putting time into your spouse. This year we did a lot fo that!

It’s the holiday season and everyone is decking their halls, so I thought it would be the appropriate time to share with you something my mom taught me years ago. How to Hang a Wreath Using Ribbon Without Damage! Hanging a beautiful wreath is so popular and there is nothing I love more than our front door each holiday season with a beautiful holiday wreath, hung with ribbon. Be sure to check out more of our home content and holiday decor here, if you enjoy this post. 

How to Hang a Wreath Using Ribbon Without Damage How to Hang a Wreath Using Ribbon Without Damage

I am so blessed to have a mother who is so talented and literally knows how to do everything! After watching Instagram stories and hearing people share that you should nail your ribbon to the top of your door or other places, I was honestly horrified. There is a much better way to do this and without the damage that is much easier. Like I said, I was a little shocked to hear people recommending that their followers put nails into their doors, windows, etc, for temporary holiday decor! So, I put it out there on social media to see if you would want a quick tutorial on how to hang a wreath using ribbon without damage and the verdict was, yes!

First, I should let you know that this is how we hang our wreaths every year. My mom has been doing this for years and she hangs a wreath on every window of her house, which has quite a few more windows than mine!

How to Hang a Wreath Using Ribbon Without Damage

Gather Your Materials

One thing that always helps is gathering your materials! I’m so guilty of always jumping right into something without having everything I need and it ends up taking me ten times longer because I’m constantly looking for something. Here are the few items you will need, to hang your wreathing using ribbon. Some obvious, some not so obvious and some are just helpful!

  • Wreath
  • Ribbon
  • Thumb Tacks (I usually do 3 per wreath)
  • Hammer
  • Scissors
  • Measuring Tape
  • Ladder

Measure Out Your Ribbon and Wreath Placement

Next, you will want to measure out your ribbon and wreath placement. Sometimes it’s helpful to do this with two people. I like to loop the ribbon through the wreath as if I’m hanging it, and see just how much ribbon I need to get the wreath placed exactly where I want it. Once you have your ribbon measure out the exact length you would like, go ahead and cut it straight across. At this point, I would go ahead and measure and precut your ribbon for however many wreaths you will be hanging. That way, everything will hang at the same height. 

Hang Your Wreath

Loop your ribbon through your wreath and hang it over your door, or window, making sure that the edge of the ribbon lines up with the top of the door at the opposite hanging side (see photo below!) Using two, or I prefer three tacks, start by placing the first tack in the middle of the ribbon and pushing it into the door. Do the same on either side of the first tack. It might be helpful to use something heavy, such as a hammer to gently push the tack into the door.

How to Hang a Wreath Using Ribbon Without Damage


I feel like it’s important to throw a disclaimer out there, just in case your wreath happens to fall! (lol) It does occasionally happen, but we use our front door and I haven’t had one of ours ever fall down. Windows are a different story because they usually bare all of the weather, unlike most fronts doors. However, it is rare that they will fall, but that doesn’t mean it’s not possible! Also, if you are hanging your wreath in an area that will be weathered, take into consideration what ribbon you choose. Our front porch is covered, so I was able to use this beautiful red velvet ribbon.

Lastly, I thought I would mention that our front door is from Thermatru. I always get so many questions about our front door! Also, our wreaths are from a local store in Colonial Williamsburg called Boxwood and Berry. 

If you like this type of post, be sure to let me know! I’m not very DIYish but I do love decorating our home and I do that by myself! So, if you have any decorating questions or concerns, be sure to leave them for me in the comment section and I will get back to you and/or write a blog post on the topic! I love sharing things my mom has taught me over the years. Thank you, Mama! I hope you enjoyed this post on how to hang a wreath using ribbon without damaging your doors or window!
