My 5K Christian Music Playlist {Living Outside the Stacks}

My 5K Playlist: Musical Motivation

We’ve entered Week 4 of Run for God! And I’m so proud of the group of people I’m training with. You should see them out there in the rain, y’all running with focus and determination! They’re the embodiment of Hebrews 12:1, which states: Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great […]

Coffee and Denim Days {Living Outside the Stacks}

Week in Review: Week 16

Dress Over Jeans with Wedges {Living Outside the Stacks}

Dress Over Jeans for Work

Let’s give it up for jobs that don’t have dress codes! When I first re~entered the work force, I remember wanting a job that required business casual attire: skirt, hose, and pumps. It made me feel all grown up, you know, after years of wearing nothing but oversized tees, scrunchies, […]

Coffee and Bling {}

Coffee Photography: VSCO Cam

When Instagram announced that they were releasing an app for Android, I cried tears of joy and patiently waited for it to become available. And as soon as it was, I downloaded it and started snapping pictures. I was in filter paradise. Over time, Instagram has gone from a place […]
