5 Things I Learned This Week

Sitting in The Voice judges chair.

It's really time to get over my fear of public speaking: Simply Stylist is right around the corner and I can't wait to hold my breakout session! Get your ticket now here. They're selling out quick!

Summer polar vortex > winter polar vortex: Hopefully this means we won't be having any come December.

There's lots to catch up on since I've been gone: Check out what I'm reading up on here.

Wedding planning isn't all that bad when it comes to dress shopping: Purchasing my wedding gown was one of the easiest decisions. Not sharing it with the whole world in excitement before my big day is another story.

Life really is too short: When I read about the Malaysia Airline disaster, my heart sank. It  makes every little thing that I bitch about seem like nothing. Because truly, it really is nothing... those small things don't matter.

Go out and enjoy your weekend and be thankful for every day. This week, I know I am.

Happy Friday!

Sweet, sweet Chicago. Via Instagram.


Simply Stylist is ALMOST HERE: Get your ticket NOW here! And if you're a member, make sure to check your email for the discounted rate.

TRL IS COMING BACK: But only for an Ariana Grande special. Sorry to get your hopes up. Here is a throwback to make up for it.

There's nothing like spending a night with bloggers after a long day: Especially when you're celebrating their achievements. Congrats to Nindis Social on the launch of their digital publishing department.

I'm REALLY going to stop watching The Real Housewives of New York: See here.

There's a lot to be inspired by in Chicago: As proved by this week's #CBNChat. Make sure you join us every Tuesday at noon!

Happy Friday! Let's all hope for a little sun this weekend.
