Blog Anniversary Fall Girl in red plaid black leggings

Happy October y’all! I wish I could be more excited about this time of year, but I’ve been incredibly busy and trying to balance my time between school, homework, my field experience, gym time, house chores and time with my two loves my fiancé and my fur baby! You can see why I’ve been a bit M.I.A. on social media and my blog…. Oh how I’ve missed blogging for you all.

Even with my busy schedule I’ve managed to buy a few fall décor items to make me feel the fall vibe! I actually made a video where I showcase my fall item decors and how I decorated my bookcase. All I know is that yes, I may be busy this month but next month I will have much more time to do the things I really love, and yes blogging is definitely on the list! Whoo hoo!

By the way guys, I’ve been trying to update y’all on my life with vlog videos and instagram stories here and there. So make sure you are following me on those platforms! That way you don’t miss a thing!

I’m sure you have already guessed what this blog post is about… I have officially been blogging for a YEAR!! Today is MY BLOG ANNIVERSARY!! I wanted to talk to you all about my experience blogging during my first year and what I have learned. So grab some coffee and enjoy this personal blog post by yours truly : )

One Year Blogging

Blog Anniversary Fall Girl in red plaid black leggings

So, if you have been keeping up with my blog posts since last year, you are amazing! You are the reason I keep making blog posts and stay motivated! On my first ever blog post for RoseyEveryday.com I talked about how I had a previous blog that I would randomly post on, however I had no real idea of where that blog was going. I thought of it as more of a personal diary, which is not bad at all because that’s what I want this blog to somewhat encompass. I want to share my story and my lessons in life where my readers can read and feel inspired and grow within their own lives. I personally have some people on the internet that I look up to, other than my mom of course. And I find personal type of blogs very helpful.

What Blogging Has Taught Me

p style=”text-align: center;”>One thing I learned from the beginning stages of my blog was that blogging wasn’t easy. Yes, I said it, blogging is not easy, but if you are passionate like myself than you love every bit of the process.
I knew from the beginning that I wanted my blog to match my personality and with that I knew that I would need to take time to create each post. From a blog idea down, to taking my own photos and finally publishing comes a lot of time and hard work. I learned that my blog along with my social media platforms are my brand. This is what people and businesses see, therefore, producing good quality content is key.

I learned that I have to have fun with my blog and not be afraid to be transparent. I have gotten personal on a few blog posts even though I was nervous before hitting that publish button. I questioned if I was making the right choice to post such a personal blog. I soon realized that my blog is a snippet of my life, it’s not my entire story.

I discovered that I wanted to share big moments in my life with my readers to inspire them. In addition, I want these memories to remain with me forever.

The Brands

Working with well-known brands has been a blessing. When I first began my blog I had no idea that brands would reach out and want to work with me. I have gotten many opportunities with different types of brands wanting to collaborate with my blog. However, I have been very careful with the brands I have chosen to work with. I only work with brands that I believe in and personally like to use. I have turned down many brands who are not a good fit for me and my blog. At first I was worried that I wouldn’t get any more opportunities but that wasn’t the case. I created this blog because I wanted to share information along with my finds. I would hate to share something I truly didn’t believe in, that is just isn’t me.

What The Future Holds

After looking back at a few of my posts I have realized that many of my ideas have yet to come alive on this blog. I have SO many ahh-mazing ideas of posts that would really help and inspire friends and readers all across the nation and beyond. However, getting my idea started has been one of the most challenging parts of this blogging journey. I have challenge myself to be more transparent on here, however, I am going to challenge myself to really make an effort to bring my ideas to life! I need to do it for myself and for my readers who will benefit from it!

With that being said, thank you all so much for being loyal and supportive readers throughout my blogging journey. I know I have taken breaks here and there, but I’m happy to know that someone, somewhere finds my posts helpful in some way.

And special thanks to my fiancé who is very patient with me and takes all of my photos for this blog : )

Thank you!

XO Rosey

Denim Jacket

September 11, 2017 in Fashion

Hi friends! Ohhh my goodness, wow! I must say that this has been one of the longest breaks that I have taken from my blog but it was not intentional. I have just been incredibly busy with life. If you watched my vlog update then you know what I have been up to as of late and it’s something that I have to prioritize at the moment. But not to worry! I’m not going anywhere. I have actually been able to be more active on my instagram and youtube channel, so make sure y’all follow me on those platforms to stay up to date with whatever I’m doing at the moment.

Thank you all for being patient with me. Now, onto today’s post!

Denim Jacket

I don’t know about you guys, but I love a good denim jacket!  Denim jackets are must-have staple in any girl’s closet! They are appropriate to wear year round and make any outfit go from boring to chic.

I love this denim jacket that I picked up from one of my favorite department stores, TJ Maxx, of course. I love the quality of this jacket, it’s softer denim and feels amazing. A very important detail for me, since I value comfort a lot when it comes to the clothes I wear.

When I picked this jacket up I chose the lighter denim since I felt that it went well with many pieces in my closet. Having a piece that can be worn with many outfits is a huge deal when staying on a budget and trying to be a minimalist.

Pairing denim jackets with dresses is one of my favorite looks for the spring and summer! This look is casual and edgy at the same, it’s an easy way to look stylish.

Like I mentioned above you can wear denim jackets year round! You can wear them so many ways and really personalize your look, the possibilities are endless.

How do you like to wear your denim jacket?

Avocado and Bean Tostadas

August 3, 2017 in Food

Since I’ve moved to Las Vegas I’ve had to find different ways to help me adjust to the hotter weather. An easy way I found to keep cool and fresh this summer was to use recipes that didn’t require me to use the stove or oven. Because let’s face it guys, the stove AND especially the oven are not your friends when it’s hot out!

For today’s post I’ve partnered with Bush’s Beans to share with you all one of my go to recipes this summer, Avocado and Bean Tostadas! Like I mentioned earlier, I try not to use the oven when preparing meals since it tends to heats up my house. I had to really get creative with some meals that feel both filling and satisfying!

The two main ingredients in this tostada spread are avocado and beans! I’m obsessed with avocados and so the mix of avocados and beans was a no brainer. For this recipe I like to use two different beans because they are healthy and give the spread more flavor.

For the spread I used the black and kidney beans both from Bush’s Beans! I love how Bush’s Beans offer a variety of beans as well as have both regular and reduced sodium beans! For this recipe I prefer to use the reduced sodium version since I’m trying to reduce my daily sodium intake.

Bush’s Beans are always available at Wal-Mart for an everyday low price that you just can’t beat anywhere else. Every time I go to Wal-Mart, their Bush’s Bean display is fully stocked with all the different beans! Makes life easier! Right?

So if you’re looking for an easy and healthy meal or snack to make this summer, keep reading to find out how I make these Avocado and Bean Tostadas!

By the way, these tostadas make a perfect side dish for your summer barbeques or as a snack for game day!

Bean Bush Avocado Tostadas

Ingredients

1 can Bush’s Black Beans

1 can Bush’s Kidney Beans

1 avocado

1-diced tomato

Chopped onion

Lemon juice

Pinch of salt

Directions

Take your can of beans and place the beans in a strainer. Run cold water to rinse the beans. I like to leave the beans to drip while I prepare the rest of the ingredients!

Next peel and mash your avocado in a bowl. Place your diced tomato and chopped onion in the bowl and mix the avocado with the tomato and onion. Don’t forget to grab those beans from the strainer and place them in the bowl and lightly mix them into the rest of the mix.

Then, take a lemon and squeeze it into the bowl (this provides more flavor.) Now take a pinch of salt and drizzle it over the bowl and mix. You can add more salt depending on your liking. I’m trying hard to reduce my salt intake, so a pinch of salt was good for me : )

Lastly, grab a cover to place over the bowl and put the bowl in the fridge for 30 minutes before serving.

You can use tortilla chip and use this mix as a dip or as a spread on your tostada like I did! It’s SO good and hardly takes any time to make!
