It’s true what they say about seasonal depression and how it can flare up during the winter months. Some people refer to it as the ‘winter blues.’ I usually have a strong case of the winter blues come January and February, so this year I decided to be proactive about it and get ahead of … More Tips To Beat The Winter Blues
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!
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 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
