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. I always got such good deals at … More Hey Macklemore, Can We Go Thrift Shopping?
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
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
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
**Disclaimer: This is me wearing every single piece of me on my sleeve. This was a very hard thing for me to write, and it’s a very taboo subject to talk about, but hopefully this conversation (like mental health) will become something we don’t shy away from. In therapy, I’ve learned that a burden shared … More Penny For Your Thoughts
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
My favorite color is rose gold. BUT… I LOVE yellow. It wasn’t until recently though that I found a greater appreciation for this incredible color. To me, this color just SCREAMS happy. I can only imagine that the reason I never really liked this color was because it had what I didn’t. Happiness. I’m not … More It Was All Yellow
