    what 27 feels like

    I know it’s almost the end of the year & this is where my end of the year/new beginnings post should be. But before I talk about those topics I really still want to share my annual birthday post reflecting on my age & life, & not just where my business & dreams have taken […]

    shout out to the women who aren’t wives or moms (yet)

    I’m not married. I don’t have kids. But I’m still important, aren’t I? When I was younger I truthfully thought that I would be married & done having kids by the time I turned 25. I also thought I’d love high school, go to college, have only one boyfriend who became my husband, & have […]

    life update: busy & secluded, but doing okay

    The beginning of the year hit & I feel like I haven’t slowed down one bit ever since. Normally, this is my slower time of the year, but for some reason I have been non-stop busy with projects & I’m super grateful for it. My feed has been filled with tons of sponsorship posts which […]

    what to do when comparison creeps in

    Recently someone reached out to me & asked for advice on what to do when you can’t stop comparing yourself to someone else in an unhealthy way. I felt very humbled that this person trusted me enough to confide in me & that she thought I would know how to beat it. Truth is, I […]

    what 2018 looked like & how i hope the new year will be

    A year is a long time. So much can happen in 12 months & it’s easy to forget. Blogging has always been a way that I have documented my life & where I’ve been since I was 19. I’ve written parts of my story on the internet for literally anyone to read, I’ve invited everyone […]

    holiday outfit inspo with macy’s

    Christmas is almost here & one of my most favorite things about the holidays, or any special moment really, is selecting my outfit! There’s just something so fun to me about knowing what you’re going to be wearing ahead of time, putting some thought into the look & feel of it, setting it aside, & […]

    what to do when you feel like you just can’t do anything

    Lately, I’ve been voicing more & more about how I am just so unmotivated to work. I’ve been extra tired, uninterested, & have lacked any or all drive to do much of anything. Last week I had a few good days of getting work done & a few days of little to no work getting […]

  • knowing yourself & sadness

    knowing yourself & sadness

    I’m not sure that I’ve ever really opened up & shared my experience with this topic before. I know I have always been an advocate for allowing yourself to be sad & feel sadness if that’s what you’re currently feeling. I think it’s healthy to know where you’re at emotionally sometimes, & that’s it’s okay […]
