Stress Less This Holiday Season

Christmas is officially less than two weeks away! With Christmas shopping to finish, holiday parties to attend, and work deadlines creeping closer and closer on the calendar, stress seems to multiply this time of year. On top of all that many of us will travel out of town to spend the holidays with our family and friends. (There's nothing more relaxing than holiday travel, am I right?) (more…)

Why I Broke Up With Social Media

Instead of the normal Weekend Edit post, today I'm going to share something that's been on my heart all week. Last Saturday, I finally had enough and deleted Instagram and Snapchat from my phone. I vowed to myself to only download them when I was ready. And this is the story of how I ended up here... (more…)

When You’re Having a Bad Day

Do you ever find yourself in the thick of what seems like an awful day? Y'all know the one I'm talking about. The worse-than-a-Monday type of feeling that seems to bring you wayyyy down. I've found myself feeling that way more times than I'd like to admit. And I've come up with a few tips to remedy the bad day blues. Change your perspective - Ask yourself, "Am I having a bad day or a bad moment?" This can drastically shift your bad day attitude to a not so bad day attitude. Sometimes the rough moments in life can feel much bigger than they are. Don't let the bad moments overshadow all the other good things happening in your day.

Goals

December Goals

I could probably say this each month, but November really flew by! The month was filled with some exciting surprises. There's something quite fun thing about setting goals. They are simply benchmarks that we aim towards. They aren't set in stone. They aren't permanent. We can change them as life happens. (more…)

Where You Lead, I Will Follow…

At last, it's here!!! Netflix's Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life is finally here! GG fans thought this day may never come. But, alas nearly 10 years after the show ended, it's back with this Netflix revival! I have a list of questions that I hope these episodes answers, like any good Gilmore fan. If you need me, I'll be curled up on the couch in my pajamas binge watching all four 90 minute episodes. I decided to put together a fun list of essentials for any good Gilmore Girls watch party. Oy, with the poodles already!

Thankful

It's Thanksgiving day in the Guillory household, which means meal preparation is in full swing, the parade is playing in the living room, and we are anxiously anticipating the arrival of family and friends for lunch. Each year the number of guests we have over to the house can vary from 5 to 30+. But one thing remains the same, no matter what, we always ALWAYS serve entirely too much food, haha! That's a Cajun Thanksgiving for you. It is my hope that y'all are spending today with loved ones! I want to take a moment and say how grateful I am for each and every one of you! Thank you for your support and for being a part of the beginning of Saint + Cypress! photo credits: Gal Meets Glam
