In case you didn't know, April is National Stress Awareness Month! Seriously, I love how this month always gives us the chance to reground and prioritize self care. But before we can look forward we have to look back.
ICYMI, here's what I am loving from March:
With the move, it certainly felt like all the things were beyond chaotic (not to mention we've basically gone 1 week without internet or TV!). It definitely gave me the chance to reorganize my life though. I fell in love with these planners from Samsill and how they've helped me customize & make my own planner.
March felt like the month of community and I loved answering a reader Q on the blog on all the secrets behind my blog's growth! Since that post, my inbox has been flooding in with questions and I can't thank you guys enough! Sometimes blogging can feel so lonely. Like if a tree falls in the forest, does any one here it? I love hearing from you guys!
Chatting with hit TV Writer Diana Snyder!
My husband love Young & Hungry, so when Diana stumbled upon The Confused Millennial and wanted to submit a guest post, I was so excited! Her story of how she went from no connections living in New York, to writer for a hit TV show in LA is so inspiring! Plus she shares some super valuable & actionable tips in her post on “How I Went From Nothing To My Dream Job”
The Bachelor Finale
Thank g-d that ish is overrrr! I wrote all about it in my Bachelor Finale Recap, but it was just painful to watch by the end. Plus with this season over, it means we are getting closer and closer to my favorite reality show, Bachelor In Paradise! Plus it also means we are getting closer to The Twins getting their own show, more Raven, and *fingers crossed* more Corrine! #TeamCorn
ICYMI, TCM turned 1 last month!! I honestly am still so blown away by the respond to my post on “10 Lessons From My First Year Blogging“. I still get random grins on my face from the outpouring love y'all have shown me this year. I can't say it enough, but thank you all so much for helping me turn my blog into my career. I never thought I my dream career would be blogging, but it truly is and it's now becoming a reality which is amazing!
Setting harder boundaries on guest posting.
While March was certainly the month of my new favorite guest post, it almost felt like a joke from the Universe in my inbox… You see, after I wrote this post on reasons no one is responding or posting your guest post submission, my inbox became flooded with emails for guest posts! Normally I would take the time to respond to every single one with reasons why it wasn't chosen, however this month was different. Instead, I either deleted (if it was so grossly out of left field) or I responded with a link to that article which felt oh so good! It still surprises me when people use the contact form to ask if they can guest post, when literally the sentence above the contact form says “click here to guest post” #SMH.
Starting the decorating process.
Many of you know by now that E and I literally moved without owning a single piece of furniture (okay we owned my desk and a tv stand). So I couldn't be happier to start pinning things to my vision boards for our home and sharing with you all how we are creating the vibes we crave (without breaking the bank), like in this post on “How To Affordably Make Your Bathroom Feel Like A Luxury Hotel's“.
The “Oops” Moment of the Month:
Okay, maybe I don't “love” this but it's worth sharing: The week I wrote this post on the best email marketing provider I've ever used, I got an email from a subscriber saying she wanted to be removed my list because she was getting too many emails. This was odd to me since I only send 1 email per week. I looked into her account a little more and it turns out there were 3 emails sent that were unaccounted for. I was in a total panic, “It would happen the week I finally decide to write this post there's a massive glitch in my mailing list #SMH”. I literally felt like my credibility was shot, I was so upset and embarrassed. Mailerlite did sort it out, and I realize glitches happen, but again if you got those random autoresponders from me, I am so sorry! <— Although, I guess in a weird way this is another example of the community I was feeling this month, since thank goodness someone told me!
Our Wedding Video!
We finally got it back from our videographer and I was thrilled to have it on repeat this month! I am so happy we decided to get a videographer for our wedding and loved sharing my tips for choosing a videographer with you as well as our wedding video!

Loved organization as well for last month and the bachelor finale! But seriously cannot wait for Rachel’s season because she’s going to kill it!
I am SO excited! But i hope it’s not as cheesy as AFTR!
I wouldn’t worry too much about the email thing. I think most people understand that no matter what platform you are on or who you are, glitches and mistakes will happen.
True; the email i got from a subscriber making me aware of the issue wasn’t very nice though so I was freaking out haha
Oooo! That’s understandable.
I love this post! I LOVE being organized and the bachelor finale, too. 🙂 Two great things that happened this month!
Haha definitely! BTW did you see Corrine launched a clothing line?!? haha
Sounds like an awesome month! I’ve been pinning lots of home decor inspo too!
What styles are you into?
Sounds like you had a great month! and congrats on 1 year of blogging! <3
Oh decorating is so much fun! I would love to see some posts on how you’re decorating and styling your home 🙂
I am planning on it! It’s going to be a slowwww process though!
Looks like you’re enjoying lots of interesting things, these days. “Organization” was the one that resonated with me. I think it’s always a challenge to stay organized.
it really is!
i loved this post! My april goals are organization! whew, it is time to get things together! And thank the lord in heaven above that Nicks season is OVER. Good riddens.
Thank you! Corrine recently said that nick and vanessa are only together for the press attention haha
I can not wait till Bachelor in paradise! It will be so entertaining for sure. Super excited for Rachel’s season as well! So much good tv! YAY!
It’s SO good! I am excited for Rachel’s season to start, but I havent been hearing the best things about her guys! she is so awesome though that I think she’ll make the season!
I had no idea that April was Stress Relief Month – what a cool time to focus on self care! And I’m so sorry to hear about your mailing glitch. It’s always so frustrating when mistakes happen at THE WORST times…but we’re only human, and they’re only technology, so it happens.
Yup!! Hope you’re getting some self care in! – yeah I just wish other people understood that too and weren’t rude!
so with you girl, praise the lord the Bachelor is over haha I was getting tired of it. I loved your wedding video- so gorgeous! x
March was kinda slow, but this April feels like a whirlwind!
I am so with you!
Congrats on the blog 1st bday!! Beautiful wedding video!
Thank you so much!
Congrats on your first year of blogging, so exciting!
Decorating a home is so fun! It is seriously one of my favorite things! One of the best decisions I made with decorating was to take my time. That way I don’t make a mistake with decorating that is super expensive to fix or a complete waste of money. Happy decorating!
I loveee the industrial shelving you put in! Our bedroom is industrial and we are trying to figure out a bookcase/shelves now actually! How we just don’t want to put holes in our place since it’s a rental
Such a great post! Very entertaining! Love your skirt too!
