Hey y’all!

First off, I would like to say that I am so so so happy that I’ve seen so much support and feedback from you guys thus far. It really makes me excited to continue writing and taking pictures because, while  I know that it makes me happy to be on here, it really motivates me when it also makes you guys happy! I can’t wait to see where this little adventure takes us all and I’m blessed with such an awesome support group!

Now, as the title mentions, I was nominated by InThePursuitOfPreppiness to do the “Beauty Blogger Award”! Can I just say that I LOVE her blog and she has the most adorable style? I definitely am excited to keep up with her and I know you all would absolutely adore her. This is an exciting first for me because not only does it allow me to share a little bit about myself to you, but it also helps me show you guys a bunch of beautiful bloggers that you may not of heard of before and hopefully you’ll love them as much as I do! So with out further ado, let’s get this little party started!  Continue reading

How To Style: Duck Boots

DSC00504

Hey y’all!

For years and years and years I’ve been lusting after an ever-so-timeless pair of – drum roll please – duck boots! I’ve gone back and forth between a pair of the classic 8″ L.L. Bean boots and the ultra preppy Saltwater Duck Boots by Sperry about a million trillion times and the only deal breaker for me was the fact that Bean Boots get back-ordered and I’d need them right away (because yes, I’d be wearing them as I trek through the Antarctic place I call my home). Duck boots are such a hit-or-miss item; you either hate them or, in my case, you love love LOVE them. A lot of the times though, people only hate them because they don’t see them styled in a way that appeals to them and the truth of the matter is that duck boots have endless ways to be incorporated into anyone’s wardrobe.  Continue reading

Top 15 Things I learned in 2015

As the new year begins to settle itself in, we often find ourselves consumed by an new, overwhelming amount of resolutions, goals and the whole “new year, new me” gimmick. While all of these ideas can potentially be effective, most of the time they end up getting pushed aside and forgotten, leaving the maker in a real heavy slump. I’ve found that it’s really hard to change yourself over the course of a single night and that changing your old calendar out rarely helps do the trick. However, there is hope for all of us wishing to create a better, more-this-less-that version of ourselves and it’s a lot easier than you’d expect. Continue reading

You Always Remember Your First

Hey y’all!

When I was in high school, I was in a business club called DECA. In this organization we would go to conventions in which we would role play in professional settings in order to work through an obstacle or problem. Also, as part of these conventions we would be required to dress and speak professionally. (Now I know you all are probably questioning my motives in telling you this little anecdote but I swear that there is a method to my craziness). SO, before my first role play I sat in front of a mirror for about two hours practicing my introduction (“Hi, I’m Hayley Ehresman”) over and over and over and over. That’s sorta how I’m imagining introducing myself to you all right now.

Now, you can put a face to the name because I know I’d be curious!

That was an awfully long-winded way of saying my name but you’ll come to find that I’m a talker and I can talk for hours about nothing. It’s one of my fatal flaws, to be quite honest. 

Okay so blogging. Why the heck am I here? Well that’s the million dollar question now, isn’t it? I have plenty of reasons why I’m here but I’ll refer back to my earlier statement when I said that I can talk for ages; so plain and simple, I am writing to you because I want to. That’s it. I feel like I can offer some sound advice and show you some pretty pictures here and there but this blog is for me (hence the name “Project Hay”). I am fully confident in the fact that blogging about my life will teach me a lot about myself and will help me grow as an individual. So that’s why I am here, but you are welcome to stick around for the ride.

Now, I know you guys are like “okay okay, so I know who you are and why you’re here (kinda) but why should we stick around?” Honestly, that’s a great question to ask. So here’s the deal. I am a very flexible, open-minded person. That being said.. I wanna write about it all! I have plans to write about fashion, organization, life updates, photography adventures, beauty reviews, & so on and so forth. BUT, I also want you to enjoy what you are reading while we are spending our precious time together. So please please please reply to my posts with requests and ideas. Like I said, open-minded. 

With that all being said, thank you for being a part of my first! I want to say thank you for having patience to do this with me, you’re the real MVP. This’ll be fun and exciting and I can’t do it with out your support so thank you for being part of this little virtual family!

Love Always,

-Hay ☼
