See ya never, 2014! Hey there, 2015!

Happy New Year! Are you excited for 2015? This past year was great but I know this one will be even better! 

At the beginning of 2014 I decorated a mason jar and had the goal of filling up the jar with collected memories throughout the year. You can check out the original jar on instagramI recommend this to anyone who wants a simple way to keep track of what you've done over the year. 

This year I lived, loved, and lost. Thank you to everyone who supported and encouraged me over this past year in the good times and bad. I am looking forward to making many more memories with you in the future! 

Looking forward, instead of the typical New Year's resolutions, I want to focus on creating a motivation or dream board where my resolutions are more like goals that I can see and work towards every single day. I think it's easy to say you'll do something for an entire year but without the visual, it's easy to lose motivation. 

2014 was definitely one for the books and I can't wait to try to top it in 2015! Stay tuned to find out what I am aiming to accomplish in 2015 but in the meantime check out what I did this past year.

Frugal Cruising Tips

Frugal Fiancée: First Week of Engagement

Hi frugal friends! Guess what?! Last Saturday, my boyfriend of 6 (almost 7) years popped the question. I have decided that this would be a great opportunity to share some frugal wedding planning tips and tricks. In college, I worked for an event planner and saw first hand how much money is spent on weddings. After throwing away over $4,000 in flowers one night, I knew there had to be a way to cut down on wedding costs. During this wedding planning period, I am going to do my best to find ways to help you stay within your wedding budget when it's your turn. Here is the first of many in my "Frugal Fiancée" series. 

Before I start to share tips and tricks, I will summarize how the first week of this engagement has gone for me. This has been a crazy week but I am also grateful for all the positive support we have received. 

After the proposal on Saturday night (which took place in my favorite spot on Wrightsville Beach, NC), I began to tell my close friends and family. Some pe…

Western Caribbean, I'm coming for you!

I'm falling off of the social media map for a week. I will be spending my Spring Break cruising around the Western Caribbean. While I'm gone, you guys should check out Groupon and Living Social to possibly plan your next vacation. (I didn't use either of these to plan my trip, but they have great deals!) These sites offer discounted prices on goods, dining, events, and travel!  Groupon Getaways Living Social Escapes
