Here are five things to remind you of the good ol’ days:

Embracing nostalgia, so long as it is done positively, can provide you with the strength you need to face the uncertain future.  So go ahead, revel in the warm feelings these memories bring about!

Forever in search of the next fashion trend and my delicious next meal.  Inspired by Blake Lively, Cardi B and Ina Garten. In love with food, fashion and long car rides. Not a fan of ketchup, sunburns and the smell of fresh cut grass
