I have never been more excited for a new year like I am for 2022. So many good things came from 2021 that I can’t even wait to see what’s to come in the next year. Now, I know it’s only early December but I’ve already got my list of resolutions, so I thought I’d … More Welcoming You, 2022!
It seems almost fitting with it being Spring AND May, which is Mental Health Awareness Month, that I share my most exciting news with everyone!! If you have been following me on my journey throughout this crazy thing we call life, then you know that I have struggled severely with my mental health. From growing … More Fresh Flowers, Fresh Starts
Rachel Zoe, an American fashion designer and writer, once said, “Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.” I have never related to a quote more, at least when it comes to fashion and clothing. I fell IN LOVE with style and fashion about 6 years ago when I had … More VOGUE.
When I was in treatment (I know I talk about it a lot, it just really changed my life), it was all about me. It was all about doing things that made me love me for who I was. I learned how to show myself grace on the bad days. I learned that not every … More Be Your Own Damn Valentine!
What-what, what-what? Since you asked… Working in retail for the past 5 years, I’ve never had the desire to really go thrift shopping. After hearing Macklemore’s song, I definitely thought about it more and how cool it could be but I never actually went out and did it.

From a mental health standpoint, it pushed me over the edge. It was a lot harder than I thought … More BACK to School
Growing up, I always wondered what was wrong with me. Why I had to be tortured with the thoughts in my own head day after day. I knew it wasn’t normal to want to disappear. I knew sleeping all day wasn’t productive and would only make me feel worse… but I couldn’t help it. It … More End Pill Shaming
***DISCLAIMER: I HAD A LOT OF FUN JUMPING ON MY BED THANK YOU VERY MUCH*** I don’t think anyone ever predicted the world to be overcome by such panic in a matter of a week. In the beginning stages, we were laughing at the memes that were produced due to the COVID-19… but it’s not … More How To “Corona Virus”
I got my first tattoo when I was 2 weeks shy of 18. My parents paid for it as an “early birthday” gift and I’ve been HOOKED ever since. I was thinking it would be so scary and painful (it is painful to an extent), but it really wasn’t as horrible as I made it … More 19 Tats + Counting
I spent the last two months of 2019 and the beginning of 2020 in an in-patient treatment facility for my (at the time, deteriorating) mental health. I had, what the therapists like to call, a “spiritual awakening.” They choose this term over “mental breakdown,” but they both mean the same thing. Let me give you a … More Treatment Doesn’t Make You Weak
