Rise and Shine, its Friday. I need this one more than usual- reason being? No explanation, but here I am. I have a pretty fun weekend planned around Columbus with one of my best friends coming to visit and bae still being in town. But before I get after it, enjoy some Friday goodness that has gotten me through the week, SPLASH:
Cold Brew Latte Pops
Wowza, these are amazing. Way better than carrying my cup of 100 degree coffee to my car, that when I arrive is then 120 dayum degrees. (I have a small commute to and from my car #citylivin). I get these tasty treats at Trader Joe’s whenever I am patient enough to make the commute. I LOVE YOU GUYS
Nothing says TREND ALERT quite like a picture back drop. They look intimidating by all the pinterest queens of America but I am here to tell you that you too can be a #bloggerbetch. Honest, if I can do it in ten minutes, you can..
No, I am not talking about the 90’s/millennial game we got to play on the computer for hours at school. Even though that game was the dopest of all time.
This city girl took a trip down the ACTUAL Oregon Trail… nature, my forte…. Or is sarcasm my forte..
4 Mid(ish)-Year Resolutions:
I had a break through this morning mid back/chest day at the gym. I needed some goals. Not January 1 goals. Not even a perfect June 1st half year set of goals. An August 1st “come to Jesus”. So now I will post the goals so that they are PUBLIC and ready to be held to.
You love Fridays, I love Fridays, everyone loves Fridays.
To throw a heap more onto Fridays, I present to you- The Friday Fix. Full of all of my favorite Friday things.
I make no promises to put up a Friday Fix every week because some week, I frankly hate everything…. TOTALLY kidding.
Everything on the Friday Fix is my very own opinion and is never anything sponsored/ paid for. I would love if you all linked up your own Friday goodness so we can all collectively spread some Friday cheer- loud for all to hear (if you don’t know the reference, I need you to skip ahead to December and watch Elf). Lets get rolling
To all you beautifuls that have no idea what to get the special man in their life, I feel you. I swear that I have the hardest man to shop for- If he wants it, he already bought it. I have toiled with what to buy every single holiday and occasion and because I am a peach I am here to share with you some of the places I start at.
1. Make Something
-I have an overly competitive boyfriend who keeps score of EVERYTHING. There are post-it notes all over his house of scores from Cornhole from two years past, but Lord knows if you were to throw away the evidence of a victory it could no longer exist……. **dramatic eye roll** To combat my competitive hoarder- I crafted a score book out of a mini binder from Target with matching mini binder dividers and paper. Threw a few stickers on it for my clever title of the book “Play to Win” and his initials BAMMMM instant homemade gift and counter de-clutter-er (yes, a word) all in one.
I have two make up staples that I don’t differentiate brands on and are always on automatic reorder when I am running low. These aren’t the only two things that I put on my face but they are the common denominator of what IS always on muuuh face.
Tarte BB Cream
The short version, just like any BB Cream, is that this magical tube does it all. The long version is that it is a primer, moisturizer, light foundation, anti-aging treatment, and sunscreen, BUT WAIT (there’s more) it is also tinted. Blah blah blah but why do I love it? Because its tinted and way lighter than a foundation and for any given casual day (every day) I rub it on my hands and throw it on my face and can walk out the door with a light but evened out look. Add a splash of foundation or blush if you nasty. I’ve tried others but none I love just as much, and I mean it, I love you BB Cream.
Last year I moved away from 1. my family, including my small precious baby sister 2. my best friends/college psycho path besties 3. the first real place i had ever called home.
I was so pumped to be a big kid and explore the new world all by myself….. Little did I know that it legit meant I would be by myself, like all the time, 25/8, me myself & I to a whole new level. It wasn’t missing the predicted suspects like our annual Catalina Wine Mixer or Drake concerts that crushed me, it was more the companion-less drives to Dairy Queen at 9pm and loops around the interstate listening to the newest hood rat album that would hopefully lead to giving us blonde heads some street cred. Everything was by.my.self. **insert clapping hand emoji**
So. to save your Partner in Crime, Best Friend Forever, Sister from another Mister, etc. from all that is lonely, I have compiled a list of all the things that meant the most to me when I moved here and talked me- NEWLY GROWN INDEPENDENT WOMAN- off the ledge of spending so much time by myself.
My name is Tori and I am so excited that you have some way or another found your way to my page- I think you will like it here, but I did write it so I may be a bit bias. I am a full-time College Football Fan and employee (how lucky am I?) and a part time everything else that I can get my hands on. I live in the city of dreams- aka Columbus, OH but I love a good trip to just about anywhere and lets be honest, I travel mostly for the food. That being said, Pursuing Posh exists as a creative outlet for my restless mind/soul and as a little entertainment for y’all. Keep in mind that we are on the pursuit together, meaning I am definitely not there yet—its a process here people. I am a Jack of many trades but not quite a master to any yet, so I am excited to learn more about….uh, mostly just “life”…. with you and force you to go on all of my adventures with me- “Adventures” ranging from a blow-out visit to an impromptu trip to Norway. Eeek
There is an unwritten (and now actually very written) warning for dry and somewhat crude humor around here, proceed with caution, it’s never too late to give me the stiff unfollow/casual block. Just kidding, its not that bad, my Grandma will be reading everything I’m sure and she is a STRICT critic, however: all of my content will be straight out of my own unfiltered mouth. Okay lets do this thing–Talk soon!
