Finally. A Blogging Basics post which is definitely applicable to those outside of the blogging industry: how to stay focused when working from home.

Y’all: this is a challenge for me. How can I motivate myself to get sh** done while my TV is calling my name? Or my bed is beckoning for me? Or I realize that I desperately need to clean my house and start spring cleaning up the wazoo?

Thank you Decoy for sponsoring this post. Elevate your occasion with Decoy wines.

How to Host a Girls' Night with Decoy, Decoy wine sauvignon blanc, Decoy California rosé review

Happy Tuesday, friends! I meant for this post to go up yesterday but then this weekend was just too. fun. (whoops)

For today’s post, I’ve teamed up with Decoy (the brains, braun, and beauty behind one of my favorite sauvignon blancs!). They challenged me to “elevate your occasion”, so I decided to share how to host a girls’ night… and do it right! BTW if you’ve never tried Decoy wines, scurry over to your nearest store and get some ASAP. I highly recommend the aforementioned sauvignon blanc (it was rated 90 points by Wine Enthusiast aka it’s really good!).

Oh and PS shoutout to my friends Yasmina, Whitney, and Anna for participating in this shoot with me. And then sticking around after to finish off all of the wine. And cheese. I know it was a huge hardship.

Whether your life involves travel, work, or just life, things arise. And those things make deadlines hard to meet if you don’t plan ahead. Which is why I so highly recommend that you schedule blog posts in advance in this week’s Blogging Basics post.

Today, we’re talking all about how to dress for spring in Texas. If this is your first spring in the lone star state, may the force be with you. Texas weather is notoriously erratic. In the past week, we’ve had a day of 50°F and rainy and a day of 87°F without a cloud in the sky.

So… umm… how the eff does one prep for that?!
