Dreams

I feel like it's about that time for me to do some reflecting. I've been very hot and cold when it comes to blogging. I get a wild hair one day, and drop it like a bad habit the next. The thing of it is I really want to be blogging. I really want to be sharing and writing and photographing and babbling…

It's just not happening.

Real talk: I don't even remember my dreams. Ever. But lately I've been having these really vivid dreams about being kidnapped. Sometimes I will even awake in a panic. I talked to a good friend about these dreams and she asked me this, "Do you feel like something has been taken away from you lately? Something in your life if missing?"

Boom. Nailed it.

I guess I didn't really recognize what a big part blogging held in my life. I've been neglecting that creative side. And it's just bubbling up and basically about ready to burst. Thank goodness for the encouragement of good friends, the entertainment they provide and just the fuel I need to set my blogging spirit on fire again!

Okay so here's the thing I'm going to answer. The question you're not asking because you're too nice, I get it.
My boyfriend FULLY supports my blogging. No, he hasn't locked up my computer and demanded all of my time, honest. I've just wanted to spend all of my time with that boy. We work out together, we cook together. It's, like, the best. I know I know… fully blown mushy relationship stuff. But you have you ever heard me talk about anyone like this? It's like that Simon and Garfunkel song is playing over and over again and we are doing the dance scene from 500 Days of Summer.

I know I know.  I'll stop.

I just wanted to clear a few things up, that's all!

Hello, Goodbye

Good morning good friends!

Today I'm checking in with you to say hello! Last week I shot 3, count em! THREE outfits for blog posts. This week.. well, I'm working on getting them up on the inter webs. Until then… here is a sneak peak of an outfit post featuring one of my most favorite summer hair styles. 


Today I'm off to Seattle for some much needed girls time with my mom! We haven't taken a trip together in a long time so I am excited for some quality time with that lovely woman!

Happy Thursday, Friends!

I was born on the 21st of October, which means my half birthday is coming up, but that also means I am a Libra. Now, I've never been one to live my life by a horoscope but I do have fond memories of reading them with my Nana. We were always so lucky if we got a 4 star day. 
If you know anything about Libras you know they are all about balance. And if you know anything about me you know I am not.  I have always had a hard time prioritizing. I tend to focus my energy all on one thing and then I end up with about 19 loads of laundry to do on my only day off. So, at the moment, this is my struggle. Although it's not necessarily a bad thing, I always want to be improving.  Ya know? Little changes here and there. 

I'm not going to make any promises that I can't keep, like never having dishes in my sink. I am human. And I do eat food. But I'm going to more conscious of how I leave the spaces around me. I just need a little time to start this whole, clean up. If I'm lucky, I get 2 days off in a row and if I'm really lucky one of those days lines up with that man of mine. So, you see what I'm saying… priorities. 

Anyway, I could ramble on forever about my lack of motivation to clean house, but I will leave you with this nice summer outfit post, instead. Enjoy!

Happy Friday, Friends! What do you have planned for the weekend?

Weekend Rundown


This was a very rare weekend for me. I had 3 days off and barely any plans. Really the only thing on my list was to attend the Farm Chicks Antique show with my mom and friend Brooke, but other than that…
Nothin. 
Oh and I don't know if you can tell, but I've totally been working out. 
I really didn't even take that many pictures… weird, right? Who am I?

I am currently reading #GIRLBOSS. I would highly recommend this to any blogger, business owner, or if you just need a little inspiration! Sophia's rags to riches story is not your typical "Work-hard-and-it-will-pay-off" story. As I read I felt like she was talking to me. Just chatting with a girlfriend. A wildly successful girl friend who is cool as shit. 

Seriously. It's a great read. 

I know it's Tuesday afternoon and I'm just posting this, but… it's better than nothing, right? 

Oh… I also binge watched Orange Is the New Black. 
Anyone else?

Happy Tuesday, Friends!  What did you do this weekend?

Happenings

Now that we are reacquainted, I think it's only fair I told you what I was up to this past month! I could go on and on with about a million word blog entry but instead I'll keep it sweet. Here are some of my favorite photos and words to go along with from my month blog-cation.

Earlier this month I assisted in styling a photoshoot for a local publication. I got to work with an amazing team and got to finally meet Crystal Madsen! Thank you Lindsey (Glam Vintage Rentals) for the amazing opportunity! I will be sure to share the photos with you when they go into publication!!
I've been eating strawberries the size of my hand. 
And eating burritos the size of a baby. 
Burrito picnics are the best. 
Making some new beautiful friends. 
Finding the most perfect pajamas
Wearing heels and jean shorts. That's a thing, right?
Spending time with this gem. Damn I miss you. NYC give me my Laura back!
Enjoying tasty beverages. That all came to an end May 31st. June is a dry month for me! Let's see how this goes…

Spending time with my best friends. Carl and Cash. 
and finally…..




Spending a good chunk of my time with this stud. That's Kent. 
He has his own hashtag.
And now an instagram. 

I will spare you with all the mushy things I REALLY want to say about how amazing and incredible he is… I'm thinking about making him do a vlog with me. 

What do you think? 
Would you like to see that? 
Just a thought.. but you know me, I give the people what they want! So if there is a good response, it's on!!

So there it is! Just a quick catch-up of this past month. Now that we are up to date I can finally tell you what's happening RIGHT NOW. 

Happy Friday, Friends! 

What are your plans this weekend? I have it off! I'm going to be spending as much time outside as I can. Oh! And I'm going to Farm Chicks on Saturday! Heard of it? SO excited!

Return

It's been just over a month since I have opened this little blog of mine, and I'm finally ready to get back at it! You see, for the past few years this blog has featured stories of love, heartbreak, family, my journey with The Bachelor…. And you have been right there with me for all of it. Although I have still been lightly active on instagram, I have been focusing more on my real life relationships (one in particular, really) than social media. 

It just seemed like the natural thing to do. 

There was not much thought behind quitting blogging for a month, it was just sort of the end product of starting to date someone seriously. Not blogging this past month gave me the opportunity to have some of the most amazing experiences with my (now) boyfriend. Before we started to date I was pretty attached to my phone and computer. Always checking, always updating, always something…. this past month has been a welcomed change. 

Now, this is the difficult part. Now that I am reintroducing myself into the blogging game, how do I find a balance? I guess that's just something that will work out over time because, let's be real, my blog is a major priority. This is something that I love. Something that brings me joy and one thing that I can say that I'm actually good at! So let's get to know each other again, yes?

Hello Friends! My name is Sabrina. Whether this is your first, third or thousandth time to this blog, I sure hope it's not your last! A little about me: I'm short, I live to travel and explore, my nails are usually painted but I'm not afraid to get dirty and my favorite food group is pie. Or french fries. Or waffles. Nice to meet you!

I like to describe my blog as a personal life and style blog. Although I keep those words separate, I work style into every aspect of my life. My style may not be the same as yours or other fashion bloggers, but I hope you can take a little something away from it! If you'd like to get acquainted with me and my blog you can read some of these posts HERE and HERE

This "draw my life" video was one of my favorites to make.

Click the links! Stay a while! Sabrina Says is back. I'm going to ease into it so I don't overload you with this past month's happenings, but trust I have stories a-plenty!

Thank you for sticking around and checking in from time to time. I promise updates are coming!

Have the best day ever, Friends!
