Thanks for visiting my blog! Please join me in this adventure of figuring out what “adulting” is all about.
Here’s the Scoop
I’m Vanessa, a twenty-something newlywed, from Cleveland, Ohio, now living in the Sunshine State – Sarasota to be exact!
You could also say that I’m a champagne-loving, kate spade obsessed, proud cat mom, who loves reading tabloids. My sweet tooth gets me into trouble as I try to maintain a healthy lifestyle, but I’m guilty of having endless excuses as to why I cannot make it to the gym.
I work full time in the medical field as a CT technologist but still try to keep up with a social life and reality TV shows on my DVR. I am trying to travel the world, while simultaneously decorating my first home and learning what being a first-time homeowner actually means.
Yet, no matter how crazy life gets, I manage to celebrate the every day and look forward to the big things that lie ahead! My mantra is the best is yet to come!
Why this blog?
My goal is to pass along useful insight and experiences along the way.
After graduating college, my life was literally a blank canvas. Getting a job, becoming independent, and making a life plan seemed overwhelming back then. Luckily, I found that having a plan and setting goals helped reduce the stress of starting my twenties.
If you would have told me 4 years ago that I would have moved away from my hometown and be where I am today, I wouldn’t have believed you. Fast forward to now and I am planning on making the second half of my twenties just as exciting and successful as the first half.
During the first half of my twenties, I relocated to Florida, cut my student debt in half, landed my dream job, cruised to Mexico, jet set to Europe, married the love of my life, and bought my first house.
The best way to describe the first half of my twenties is on point with Diane Von Furstenberg’s quote:
“I didn’t know what I wanted to do, but I always knew the woman I wanted to become.”
I want to share part of my world with other women so that they too can realize that it is possible to do what you want and chase what you love. Here you can find my tips and tricks on how I manage to celebrate the every day while surviving adulthood!
On my blog, you will find how to master wedding planning, valuable wedding tips and advice, where I find the latest items to decorate my home for every season, my favorite recipes, champagne cocktail concoctions, beach and travel tips, and an insight into my daily life on how I manage to do it all within budget.
Here’s to inspiring each other to be our best and checking off our bucket list one day at a time!
