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.

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
It’s your girl Kate, here to share with you 5 ways to wear this cute polka dot pencil skirt. Also, this is my feeble attempt at being a consistent blogger.
