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 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
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)
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
So sorry to COMPLETELY bombard you with photographs but, in all honesty, this is just the start. I think you will appreciate the fact that I am doing four separate blog posts for my Europe trip because that would be a whole heck of a lot more photos in one sitting… You’re welcome. Let me … More London Calling
In this day and age, we are all looking for some place where we can escape reality. The “Happy Place” pop-up in Los Angeles, CA does exactly that!! When I found out that this was a museum within driving distance from me, I bought tickets INSTANTLY!! With all of the horrible things happening in the … More My “Happy Place”
