Feel Good Friday; vol. 23

Friday Link Love

              from the post, Classic English Pimms Recipe Has time felt like it's been on super speed mode to anyone else lately? I blinked and I went from the beaches of Cancun, Mexico to a wedding in the woods of West Virginia with fall in full effect. While in reality, these two events happened 4 months apart from one another, it feels like yesterday. I think time feeling as though it's "flying" is due to the 9-5 lifestyle. Everyone on Monday talks about how they cannot wait until Friday, then when Sunday rolls around, we're all questioning where the week went. It's alarming how quickly life is actually passing us all by, waiting for the next day or counting the minutes until the weekend. from the post, What…

Exciting Updates- I’m on a Blogcation!

exciting-Updates

photo captured from a recent trip to Amelia Island Hi, loves! This post is short & sweet to explain my recent silence over here on GPL. I've been hard at work searching for designers, layouts, and ideas for an overall blog refresh and rather than working on constant new content, that has been on my priority list. I'm happy to say that I've finally narrowed it down + am planning on starting the conversion by the end of this weekend! Due to that, GPL should still be 100% workable, but I won't be able to upload content until the redesign + migration take place. I should be back in business & the swing of things in less than 2 weeks (max!!) but I wanted to let you all know because I know I hate…

Friday Link Love

From the post, The Very Best Way to Order the Starbucks Pink + Purple Drink Β I know I probably say this a lot, but Friday, it is so good to see you! My plans for a low-key month have actually been succeeding! After trips to Cancun with friends, a beach week with family, spontaneous weekend trips to DC, a random weekend in Charlotte, and working my life away, this relaxing month of August was exactly what the doctor ordered. [And yes, I'm referring to myself as a doctor here. ;) ] From the post, Labor Day Weekend Getaway What has your month consisted of so far? Also, can we talk for a second just how close fall is? I went to Costco with Dj last week and there was HALLOWEEN decor out... what! Of…

7 Blogs I Read Every Day

7 Blogs I Read Every Day

From the post, My Top 10 Songs to Listing to While Relaxing As a blogger, one of my favorite things to do is read other blogs. [shocker, right? ;) ] With my morning coffee, at lunch, and before bed, I tend to find myself heading over to various blogs to see what a few of my favorite bloggers have been posting and if there's anything new happening on their sites. Of course, this list doesn't come close to the blogs I keep tabs on and read often, but this list ofΒ 7 post content on a regular basis (SO important) and tend to write on topics that I find I'm most interested in reading about constantly. From the post, 3 Books to Read this October I talked before in my blogger series, social media happy…

7 Blogs I Read Every Day

From the post, My Top 10 Songs to Listen to While Relaxing TGIF! Can you believe it's the last weekend of July? I know I can't. I don't know what it is, but lately time + subsequently life, is seeming to fly by. It might be because this summer has been so go-go-go for me. From spending an extended night in Charlotte, NC, then directly flying to Cancun with Dj + my best friends, to exploring Mayan ruins, to going up north to DC, NJ, + MD for a spur of the moment trip, this past week in OBX, to having friends come and visit any weekend we're home, I haven't had a chance to pause this summer. Don't get me wrong, I love always having friends visiting, going on trips, and having things…

7 Blogs I Read Every Day

From the post, 3 Books to Read this October Happy Friday, little loves! Today, Dj and I area headed to the Outer Banks in North Carolina to meet up with my family for my mom's birthday week. We're taking the full week (Friday-Friday) and I am SO excited to get away for some much needed R+R. This summer has been very go-go-go for us, so I'm looking forward to pouring myself a glass of skinny fruit sangria, munching on some creamy roasted garlic hummus, and curling up with a good book on the beach. What are you getting into this week? Whatever it is, I hope it's a great one! Enjoy the rest of your Friday and procrastinate a little with some of my favorite reads this week! xx   If you’ve ever thought…

From the post: Skinny Fruit Punch Sangria Friday, you are looking mighty fine today. ;) Any one else have one of those weeks that just seems to go on forever? There was something in the air this week and I am ready to head home and pour a glass of that skinny fruit punch sangria. This weekend will be one for the books! One of my best friends from college, Katie, is in town so we'll be hitting up the beach, maybe make a quick stop in adorable St. Augustine, and definitely have a great time. Do you have anything special planned for this weekend? Whatever it is, I hope it's a great one! Β And for now, to get you through the rest of your Friday, here are the links I've been crushing on…

Blogging, Tips & What I've Learned

Social Medial Happy Hour : Blogger Series

"How-to-make-your-blog-grow-in-followers"

GreenPalateLife is now almost 3 years old (!!!) It's crazy to think of where I started vs where I am now. My posts have changed, my creativity levels have increased, and I've been pleasantly surprised that no matter how much time has past, there is always going to be something new and interesting to cover. (Yes, that was a big fear of mine when I first started out!) As my blog continues to grow, I'm finding that I'm getting asked a lot more my tips and tricks to keep my blog going. These questions range from the basics of my advice to people thinking of starting a blog, to more complex questions, such as how to actually design a blog, what databases I prefer, how to grow your follower count, the best SEO tips,…
