Inflammation Is Quite Literally Killing You

Disclaimer: This post barely scratches the surface on this topic, it is just a brief, simplified explanation of my understanding of it. On my list of things I'm really effing glad I know about, this topic is up there. I’ve had to do a lot of research on it as part of my job and it blew my mind how serious it was. I have always been interested in health and wellness but had never heard much about it -…

What To Expect In 2018 + A HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY

Starting something new is both exciting and daunting. When I set out to start my blog the mere idea of posting on social media almost every day while posting at least once a week on the blog made me so uncomfortable. I thought I would never be able to come up with enough things to talk about. And yet, here I am 37 weeks later having posted almost every day on social media and took only 2 weeks off from…

Beating The Self Sabotage Spiral

Is Mercury in retrograde or what? Full disclosure I'm not completely sure what that means, all I know is the funk is real. I can't quite pin point what is putting me in a funk, I think it's Impatience. Feeling like I should be further along than I am is a vice for me. Having moments of momentum and excitement when pursuing a dream followed by down moments, where it doesn't seem as if anything is actually going your way…

Tata Harper Natural Skincare Line | My Thoughts

I am a huge skincare junkie, in case you didn't already know. For me it is a self care ritual, that makes me feel good about myself. If nothing else goes right in my day, I know that I start and end my day taking care of myself. I admit it is a pretty pricey addiction, but hey, at least it's good for me? While I love a good drugstore find, there are certain products I believe are really worth…

When The Honeymoon Phase Is Over AF

Remember when you used to look at each other with hearts in your eyes? Couldn’t keep your hands off each other? It’s the best feeling in the world. Sh**, you actually really love him, and the best part... he loves you back. You’re literally high on life. Then, even though you were sure it would never happen, comfort sets in, routine sets in, now you live together! He leaves his freakin’ shoes in the middle of the kitchen floor. You…

The Number One Thing I Use To Make Decisions

“Trust your intuition,” “trust your gut,” we get it! We’ve seen that quote a million times on Pinterest and if you click the hashtag #quoteoftheday I’m sure you’ll find it posted a million more times. If you don’t know this already, I LOOOVE a good inspirational quote. But, it irks me when a really important or profound statement gets overused to the point where we are almost desensitized to it; “Trust your intuition,” is one of those quotes for me.…

My Advice On How To Get Good Advice

How many times have you consulted your single friend on relationship or dating advice? How many times have you consulted your equally lost mid twenties friends on how to figure out your life? My advice here is, be careful whom you take advice from, including mine. Which is a pretty counter productive statement for me to use, but I genuinely believe this. I do my best to only offer advice when I truly believe that I feel qualified to offer…

How I Overcame Social Anxiety

You might be surprised to know that I grew up with some serious social anxiety. Wait, what? The bubbly, charismatic, center of attention deals with social anxiety? No, way. Didn’t your mom ever teach you not to judge a book by its cover? I’ve had conversations about having social anxiety with people who also deal with it, and the truth is everyone just copes with it differently. Some retract and distance themselves; I over compensated by forcing myself to be…
