    pantry products: plant-based beauty & household items

    I’ll admit that I’m not one of those people who only uses all-natural products.

    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 […]

    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.
