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. I always got such good deals at … More Hey Macklemore, Can We Go Thrift Shopping?
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
After the excitement of the holidays, the winter becomes very cold and dreary for me. I’ve always had an overwhelming amount of anxiety when it comes to January and February. I can’t tell you the exact reason why, all I know is they are very hard for me, emotionally. This year was a little different, … More Winter Whites & February Blues
I am going to start off by saying how upset I am… I got a new phone a while back and not all of my photos transferred so I am missing quite a few photos from the first 2 outfits. Sad, sad day. I had to get over it, though, and I will NOT be making … More Balloon-Sleeve Sweaters and How to Wear Them
What the pictures on social media don’t tell you is that I am fighting a war inside my head every single day. Some days I can’t tell as much because I don’t feel “as sad” or “as anxious,” but that battle is still being fought. I can think myself into a catastrophe quicker than you … More An Anxious Mind
You’ve heard it before… “You need to love yourself before someone else can love you.” I whole-heartedly believe that. It’s all about loving who you are and being comfortable alone before inviting another soul into your life to love and be loved by. It may come across as repetitive but I am going to always … More Self-Love (For More Than Just Yourself)
This post is for those of you struggling with your day to day life. Those of you who can’t or won’t get out of bed. Those of you who need antidepressants, anti-anxiety pills, or bipolar medication to stabilize your moods, giving you the ability to live a “normal life.” What even is a “normal life?” … More Let’s Talk Mental Health
I am SO trying to be better about blogging because I have a ton of great content and ideas, just no time to execute any of it! LOL Due to the fact that I was sick for most of the time that I was in Rome, I didn’t get out too much and when I … More An Evening (Or Two) In Roma
I HAD to take a selfie in Monet’s bedroom mirror, DUH!Having been to Paris before, I was slightly nervous to go back because I wasn’t a HUGE fan of it the first time. I also got sick so there was just a bad taste in my mouth (pun intended). EVERYTHING CHANGED THIS TIME. I have … More From Paris, With Love
