my blogging journey - one year

Today marks one year since I started my has grown SO much, I went from maybe 3 view a post to now around 40-60, it has been an amazing process and I hope to grow my blog more and more!  When I first started I just posted whenever I felt like it, and it was never consistent, I am happy to say that now I post (pretty much) every Wednesday and Sunday!  In one year my blog has been able to share so many amazing things in my life and it has brought me so much joy being able to share these things with others - this is my creative outlet and I absolutely adore it!  Also this summer I started an Instagram for my blog - so make sure to follow that - @elegantlyelleb - there I post lots of random things and by following it you will never miss a blog post as I always post when I do a blog post on here!  It's really fun - right now I'm trying to figure out a new theme was blue which was working out great, but now I feel like changing it to something...maybe something like green...we will see!

To wrap this long rant up I will say that blogging this past year has really meant SO much to me and I can't wait to start the second year off great!  Also, hope this long rant wasn't too annoying!

Drinks - orange juice - cranberry juice - smart watr - k cups
Fruit - (for fruit I like to the prepared containers because this is a lot less work and there's not a lot of room to prepare fruit at college) - lemons - strawberries - raspberries - apples - pineapple

Other Staples - peanut butter - popcorn - trail mix - …


Well, it’s official, I’m no longer a teenager, on Sunday I turned 20! So, in honor of having two decades of my life under my belt, today I am sharing twenty things I have learned in the past twenty years! Holy crap, I cannot believe how old I am, now that I am writing this post, haha!
ONE – Stay positive Over the last year specifically I have really learned that positivity is one of the most important characteristics that I want to have. When someone thinks of me, I want them to think of a positive person. Just trying to be more positive really helps me to just have a better day and to be an overall happier person in general. While the rest of this post is not in order based on importance, this is my number one thing I have learned before I turned 20!
TWO – Be grateful I have realized it’s important to take the time to remember to be extremely grateful for everything I have, you never know how long you will have something. It’s important to be grateful especially for the little things in …


Today's outfit is what I wear is a great depiction of what I would love to wear everyday, thermals, my favorite leggings, and hunters which are great for the tons of snow we have in New York. I love wearing this outfit and outfits like it to my classes and like today, to run errands. This thermal is so warm and insanely cozy!
