Whatever you want to call them, I'm declaring it the summer of that. It's no secret that wearing headbands and bows and scarves in my hair has been something I've been a huge fan of for years, so I'm thrilled that it's becoming such a trend. I remember when my hair started growing back in after chemo and it was still too short to do anything, so my mom got me a pack of baby bow headbands and that's all I wore for months. It was SO fun to have something to wear in my hair again and it . . .
*affiliate links Thewhat I bought in a post yesterday is in FULL swing, and yes, I have already spent way more then I should have. What can I say? I was very excited to what I bought in a post yesterday and splurging on the Barefoot Dreams Cardigan was one of the best choices I've ever made. No, I won't blow up the blog or Instagram TOO much with #nsale picks, but I shared what I bought in a post yesterday that you can check out here, and I'll be doing a try-on post once all my orders come in for those who are interested in shopping it. If you want to keep the tabs on that, make sure you check in on my Nordstrom Sale page, where I'll be updating everything during . . .
*affiliate links Yes, I was up at 1 AM last night shopping the Nordstrom Sale. And yes, I get it - hearing about the Nordstrom Sale is probably already annoying the majority of you. Totally understandable. I asked everyone over on Instagram a few weeks ago if they were shopping the Nordstrom sale and if they wanted content centered around that. It was split pretty 50/50, so I decided I would do a post on what I actually ordered from the sale and what I end up keeping (because I definitely won't be keeping it all.) I know that the blogging scene gets a little overwhelming during the Nordstrom Sale and I also know that Nordstrom prices may be a little bit of . . .
Friends. It was 102 degrees today in Utah. We don't have air conditioning (except a small window unit in our room, thank goodness.) It's HOT. SUMMER IS HERE! And while I'm super stoked about all the summer things we've got planned this year, like a trip back East for Beach Week and a day at a water park here in Utah, I'm already over the heat. I'm a fall girl - give me all the cozy leggings and sweaters and jackets and scarves. BUT! I'm trying really hard to not rush through the present and enjoy time as it is right now, instead of complaining and waiting around for the summer heat to end. No sense in waiting for cooler temps to live a vibrant life, right? As . . .
Top: Stitch Fix - Similar here | Skirt - Downeast Basics | Shoes - Walmart I had one of the most life-changing weekends in my entire life and I realize that sounds super dramatic, but I'm not exaggerating. I had the opportunity to attend the Build an Awesome Brand workshop put on by Alison Faulkner from The Alison Show on Friday and my life has been changed in so many ways. Everything from here on out in my life is going to be different. I'm still wrapping my head around some of the things I learned about myself and still sorting through all the emotions that were dug up through the workshop, but I can tell you this now: I've never felt so sure or confident that I'm . . .
affiliate links used at no cost to you. thanks for supporting HTC! Hi hi hi. Hey there. It's me. I've got ALL the things to catch up on and lots of random favorite things I've been wanting to share, so it's time to sit down and chat it up. So many good things to talk about, so I'm just going to jump right into it because...SO MANY GOOD THINGS TO SHARE. Life Updates ICYMI (which I'd be surprised if you did because I've shouted it from every rooftop possible) I am OFFICIALLY 12 years cancer free. I had my appointment last Friday and passed with flying colors. Barring funny x-ray results, I am in the clear and good to go for another year. The . . .
I nervously get into the passenger seat of our Ford Edge at 7:40 AM on a Friday morning and buckle myself in. I tell myself over and over again that I shouldn't feel so nervous, that there is no reason to worry, that this is my 12th year of going through this process, but I'm still shaking a little bit. It's hard to listen to logic, sometimes, when there's trauma telling you otherwise. Dustin drives. He talks about the plans for the next Jeep project and I try to focus on the words as much as I can.

*Affiliate codes used. Thank you for supporting Hey There, Chelsie HAPPY SECOND DAY OF SUMMER AND HAPPY ALMOST 4th OF JULY! I don't know about you, but even though this year is literally flying by, I'm so, so stoked that it's summertime and that the 4th of July is around the corner. It's probably my 3rd favorite holiday of the year (Christmas being number one and Thanksgiving being number two, obviously.) Growing up, we would spend the 4th having big BBQ's at my grandparents' house, swim in their pool, and go watch the fireworks all together as a family. I have nothing but fond memories of the 4th and it's been really fun to create memories and traditions with . . .

If you've been following me on Instagram stories over the past month, you'll know that I recently had a huge revelation/breakthrough in regards to the way I view myself and my body. I've been on a serious journey this year to become healthier and to take care of my body as best I can - something that I've struggled with for 12 years, ever since I was first diagnosed with cancer. I've gone through ebbs and flows of focusing on wellness in my life but I always seemed to get derailed. I couldn't figure out why I couldn't just STICK to a plan and I've been doing a LOT of self-reflection and working . . .
