a day in the life








Mesh top, sports bra, crops, and tennis shoes: all from the “Life on the Run” Saucony apparel line.

Other outfit details: sunglasses | handbag | Apple watch

Something I love about snapchat is that it allows y’all to see some details about my day-to-day life that instagram might not show you. (Not that it’s all that exciting – you probably get so tired of my dog snapchats!) But I love following other people – friends, bloggers, celebrities, on snapchats because it shows you some of the behind the scenes of their life. Today I want to share what a typical week day looks like for me, and why this new Life on the Run Collection from Saucony is such an easy go-to style for me!

I love being self-employed because it means every day looks completely different. There is no rigid “9 to 5” schedule. Having said that though, here’s a typical day for me:

  • Wake up around 6, publish my blog post for that morning, make Michael’s lunch for work, send him off to work. (Health tip! I drink a cup of hot lemon water with a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar every morning! Great for your metablosim, digestion, and fighting bacteria.)
  • After Michael leaves for work I try and spend 30ish minutes with the Lord. I either read whatever devotional I’m going through (see this post for some of my current favorite reads), or a book by a Christian author, a passage of Scripture, and then spend time in prayer! I might not get this time in every morning but I really try and make it a priority. It just centers/grounds me for the day and reminds me of what truly matters.
  • Usually around 8am is when I workout. I either go to a Flywheel class, run outside with Beau, or go workout at Equinox. I’m all about workout clothes being cute (obviously) but function is also SUPER important to me – which is one of the reasons why I love this Saucony apparel I’m wearing in the photos. This sports bra is super comfortable, yet very supportive and breathes so well. These tights are adorable (love the mesh) but also very flattering and definitely keep you cool!
  • After I workout I usually go to a coffee shop to work for a few hours. I love that everything in this Life on the Run Collection from Saucony is a line that can easily take you from the gym to errands, because that is my life! At a coffee shop I’ll usually answer e-mails, edit photos for blog posts, brainstorm new brands to collaborate with, work on taxes/accounting stuff (yuck), or get anything else on my work to-do list checked off. (Depending on what day of the week it is, sometimes instead of coffee shop I’ll shoot with a photographer for blog posts! Or have a meeting with a brand)
  • After I’m done with the most important things on my work to-do list, I’ll usually go run a few errands before coming home. Grocery shopping, post office, returning something to the mall, etc.
  • Once I get home I usually just have a few hours before Michael gets home from work. So, I’ll usually take Beau for a walk, tidy up around the house, and work for a few more hours.

I’m so thankful for my job and love working for myself, but some of you might be surprised that the life of a blogger really isn’t all that glamorous! My week days are an endless to-do list until Friday (as I’m sure yours are too), which is why this Saucony apparel line is great for days when you’re here and there and everywhere.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Happy Friday!
