FALL TRES-TRENDS

I can’t believe it. Pumpkin spiced latte and sweater season is right around the corner. Feels like just yesterday that Shawn and I road tripped from Nashville to beautiful BC for the summer, entertained by Snapchat and my sweet summer jams (Dierks Bentley, anyone?). While those dog days of summer are winding down, I am

WEDDING DIET DETOX

Over the last year, I’ve worked really hard to change my lifestyle. Life’s about balance and I’m all for it. To me, being healthy isn’t about intense diets or quick fixes. It’s about the small steps that wind up making a big difference. I’m also naturally petite and for most of my life, I haven’t

5 CITIES I’D JET SET TO IN A HEARTBEAT

We all know I’m a little jet setter, so I thought it would be fun to share my top 5 places I’d travel to in a heartbeat! 1. Antiparos, Greece Photo Credit: Instagram @simcol Antiparos is one of Greece’s hidden gems. I follow my friend and former bachelorette, Andi, on Snapchat and she recently visited this island. I

KAITLYN BRISTOWE X STILNEST JEWELRY

Music has always been my biggest inspiration. I grew up in the dance studio and was doing pirouettes almost as soon as I could walk. Whenever I’d step on to the dance floor, I’d have this overwhelming feeling of safety. It didn’t matter if it was a ballet class or a hip hop class –

GIRL TIME WITH MY PALM BAES

Shawn and I are back in BC for the summer – and I couldn’t be more excited! I didn’t realize how much I missed watching those sunsets, biking the seawall and being minutes away from my girlfriends. But, I am back in the city that captured my heart (and this time, there are no torrential

IS THEIR COMBINED NICKNAME, JOJOJO?!

The Bachelorette opened up many doors for me – and I’m grateful for that. I watched this season to show my support – I tweeted and blogged to share my take on JoJo and her guys. To be honest, the amount of anxiety it gave me was unhealthy. I know too much about what goes

MEN TELL ALL

Last year, the “Men Tell All” episode was one of the hardest episodes for me. I was so emotionally drained from all the hate I had received and I knew we were going to address the bullying. I had a feeling that some of the guys would support me, and some of the others would

IS THIS MY FANTASY SUITE?!

The episode started where the last one left off…with Luke telling JoJo he loves her right before she was about to cut him. Turns out, she let him go him anyway and Luke was just as shocked as the rest of us. Like, WHAT?! This situation really shows that communication is key! JoJo and Luke

MEET THE PARENTS

Hey guys! This week is a tag-team blog effort between me and my bestie, Bri. I’m not going to lie, I’ve missed the last two episodes as Shawn, Doodle, and I are making our way to beautiful BC for the summer! My best friend, Bri, has been filling me in on the show. Here’s her

SWEET SUMMER JAMS

Every summer has a song, but this year’s has ten! I always create a little playlist and have the tunes going at the beach, at a bbq, or even during a night-in with Shawn (and Doodle). Music makes things better. So, roll down your windows and crank up those tunes. Here’s what I’ve been listenin’

J’AIME PARIS

Romance overload coming in HOT. First of all, I have to say, you can never have enough time in Paris. I could spend months there. This was my second trip to Paris. My first time was with one of my best buddies who used to live in Germany. I visited him and took in the Christmas
