Happy Valentines Day, My Loves!

Something I think is slightly comical (the older I get, the funnier it gets) is that each year, every girl (including myself) find so much satisfaction in having “A Valentine”. It is so fun to have someone who loves you, and cares deeply for you. However, we often look past all the amazing people that are already in our lives, constantly looking for the one person who will make you feel “special”. But truth is, those people are all around us. Yes, it is so much fun to have “A Valentine”, and yes you feel so lucky to have someone like that in your life, but at the same time, there doesn’t have to be just one valentine. Today is about love and about making others feel loved and important. There are soo many people who can do that for you. As part of the Love Yourself Campaign I have been asked to be a part of, I’ve realized that it really is so important to look at the good within yourself, to love yourself, before you can truly love anyone else. I LOVE Valentines Day. Partly, because I love receiving flowers (who ever thought a girl could feel so loved than to receive a big bouquet of flowers), Love the colors- pink, pink, and more pink, I love the joy that comes from truly loving a person and vice versa, and the opportunity it allows us to share our love with those around us. It’s true what they say, Love is the most powerful thing in the world. I love, love. I love all the incredible people in my life, And I love all of you lovelies, because without you, none of this would ever be possible. I hope you have so much fun dressing up in the best colors ever, get lots of flowers, eat tons of chocolate, and feel so much love. You, are all amazing and worth being loved. Always always remember that.

Thank you so so much for reading!!!

Happy Love day.

Hello Lovelies. Okay.. It is really cold. Holy Moly, it is hard for me to even get outside. I was just in Chicago, which you saw if you follow me on Instagram @megricks (stay tuned to find out the exciting reasons I was there).. anyways, it was so warm there. I mean for Chicago at least. They are having an amazingly good winter. We seriously lucked out big time.  We definitely picked the right year to go. Anyways, back to the weather here.. Lately, getting dressed has been a major struggle. I am getting kind of sick of my winter clothes and boots. I try to switch things up and make it different. But, I realized, sometimes you just have to get back to the classics. This pencil skirt has been on repeat this winter. I’ve paired it so many different ways (As seen Here) It’s a staple piece forsure. Also, It’s currently on sale, plus an additional 30% off right now. And to be honest, the great thing about a J.Crew Pencil skirt is that they stay in style for so long. It is a classic, and something you can keep wearing for years to come. Which, in my opinion, makes spending a little more money worth it, since it is such good quality you will be able to keep it longer than you would a cheaper item. So, I think a splurge every once in a while is totally okay.. especially when a it is a classic and it’s from J.Crews winter sale. Makes for a much cheaper “splurge”. If you needed justification, there it is (ha).

I also just wanted to say thank you to all my readers and followers. Your comments have been so kind and supportive and I couldn’t be more grateful. You guys are the best. Thanks for stopping by!

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen a few of these pictures from my roommate Christmas shoot.  I obviously couldn’t post all of the pictures there, so here are a few of my very favorites. I really lucked out with such amazing roommates and best friends. I am a big believer that the Lord places people in our lives for a reason. Nothing is coincidence. These two are an incredible blessing in my life. They both had just returned from serving a mission for the LDS church and truly got home just when I needed them. I had just gone through the biggest and most challenging trial of my life this past year and I know the Lord put them in my life to help heal me. I am so blessed to have them. Not only that, but they are always down for late night chips and salsa, dance parties in the apartment, and are my biggest supporters at dance performances. Plus, they let me style this entire shoot exactly how I wanted and it was so so fun!!! Thanks to J.Crew for helping me fulfill my inspiration. Plus, J.Crew is having an extra 40% off all their sale items! Check it out. Gotta love those post Christmas sales! Also, Net-a-Porter is having a huge sale on designer items. Check it.

Happy Holidays!

I just wanted to say a quick hello from the beautiful and snowy Park City + give you a heads up that EVERYTHING at J.Crew is 30% off AND all sale items are an additional 50% off!! There is still time to overnight a last minute package, or just give yourself (or a friend) a little Happy New Year gift. No better way to ring in the new year than with an amazing J.Crew Sale!

My family and I are enjoying a good 47 inches of snow up here in Park City.It’s sort of a blizzard but we are still hitting the slopes and taking advantage of all the fresh powder. Then of course  sipping hot chocolate and warming by the fireplace afterwards.

I love spending time with my family, it really is the best part of the holidays. I hope you all made it home and are enjoying some down time and celebrating with the ones you love most.

Thanks for Stopping by and have a Very Merry Christmas and the Happiest New Year!!
