Portable iPhone Chargers, JoJo Candles & More!

  • Good Things

Have you ever pulled out your phone while you’re out and about and RIGHT before you take a picture, it DIES?! Or maybe you’re taking a video and you have 13% battery left and then it dies and doesn’t even SAVE what you were filming?! It’s just the worst! My phone’s battery life is HORRIBLE. Even after closing all of my apps, my battery doesn’t last and even though this is definitely a first world problem, it’s still a problem.

It was almost 7 years ago when I was newly engaged and searching for a wedding dress of my own! I tried on ONE dress and bought it that day! ONE!! That was my first mistake! Why didn’t I try on more than one just for FUN?! I was weird I guess! That’s a post for another time. What I want to focus on today are OPTIONS. When I was thinking about this post I worried that my words would come across wrong and so I have a few disclaimers I would love to share before I continue!
