Meet Betsy!


This post has been sponsored by Purina® Cat Chow® Naturals Grain Free Original. All thoughts and opinions are my own.


Over the past couple of years, I’ve been on the quest to be aware of the ingredients I use. As you know, it started with my makeup and skincare. But as time progressed, my transition to switch to safer ingredients keeps expanding to more areas of my life. Can’t stop, won’t stop. And I think my fiance has had enough earfuls and might be tuning me out now. I do have control over my fur baby, Betsy. Everyone meet Betsy! Honestly, she’s a bad listener, too.

Girl has sass. But her weakness will always be food and that’s how I have her wrapped around my finger. As she hits an older age (almost 12), I want to make sure she’s getting the best food to keep her healthy and active. Recently, I sat her down and told her things were changing in the food department. She just turned the other way-typical Bets.


When I adopted Betsy so many years ago, I knew it was important to go the natural route. Target has a great pet food section and since Betsey’s adoption, it’s been my go- to for supplies. I usually head to Target when shopping for clothes or other fashion accessories, but now I always make sure to stop by the pet aisle! With Target’s selection, it feels like it’s possible to have it all!



After carefully looking at the cat food selection, I found the one-Purina® Cat Chow® Naturals Grain Free. Suited for adult cats,I really wanted her to be able to eat this from now on. Besides being high in protein (important for Betsy’s taste buds), Purina Cat Chow Naturals Grain Free doesn’t have artificial flavors or preservatives-yessss! Not only is it great for her diet, but Cat Chow Naturals Grain Free contains Omega-6 which helps Betsy have healthy skin and a shiny coat. I hate to say it, but I never even looked at what’s in her food before. Sorry, Betsy. She was always happy eating it, which made me happy. Why mess with a good thing? I know better now.

The best part coming back from my cat food run at Target is without fail her recognizing the sound of the packaging. She goes nuts and follows that bag! Even though it was a different brand, she didn’t care. Better yet, she went to town with her new Cat Chow Naturals Grain Free food without a flinch. It’s safe to say we’re both on the board!

Casual Friday






Jean jacket // jumpsuit (size down) // slides // hat

Confession: I have worn this jumpsuit more times than I could count and even here. I'm a big outfit repeater by nature and sometimes I feel this weird pressure to not wear things again on the blog. Am I the only one? I mean it's ridiculous, right? Don't we buy clothes so we can wear them more than once? I know I do. Heck, I often wear something twice in one week. If no one saw me wear it, I might just put it back on the next day. I'm certainly not going to waste a good outfit. I really didn't intend to rant, but as much as I love this blogging world there are some unrealistic things going on. And well, I'm just want to say that as much as I love buying new clothes I love to wear those clothes over and over. And this jumpsuit is a prime example of a great purchase to support my repeating ways.  It's been my travel outfit, interview outfit, casual Friday outfit, and everything in between.

And now it's time for our weekly flashback Friday featuring this look here. Basically, it's more items I wear on repeat now that it's warmed up. That top has been one I still can't get enough of to this day!

It's funny to see these pictures and realize you can see a difference in yourself. No, I'm not talking about getting fit or anything like that. It's deeper. It's something I've been working on for a really long time. ME. That mental and spiritual me. And to be honest, it's been a roller coaster to get here. I fought for it every.single.day. If you don't remember (or missed my post), I was laid off 9 months ago to this date and I haven't talked much about it here since. Probably one of the hardest and longest battles I've had to overcome. It's the closest thing I know to an unexpected breakup. Not only was it a punch to the ego, but for every interview that turned into rejection or even worse being ghosted pushed me back to what felt like the beginning of the starting line. There were so many no's and so many tears. And you have to pick yourself up and try again and again and again. But I can say I made it through. I actually made it. I landed the right job. I'll tell you about that another day. 

If you're in that tough spot of looking for a job, know that you can find the right job for you. It might be so hard now, but it really is just a season. No season can last forever. If you need someone to talk to about it or advice, please email me! I know how lonely that road feels.
