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…

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…

Why Is It So Hard To Take Our Own Advice?

Location: Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa At Montelucia It’s no secret that I love giving advice (Hence, the creation of Life Off The Reel). I get a thrill out of successfully overcoming emotional hurdles and sharing how I did it. I love listening to other people’s problems, talking through them and helping them figure out how to overcome them. I’m not sure why, maybe I should have been a psychologist? Maybe I’ll end up being some sort of coach some…

My Favorite Serums & Moisturizers

I've always been good about taking care of my skin, washing off my makeup before I go to bed, using moisturizer - super basic stuff. Now that I'm 25 and super mature I started reading a bunch of stuff that freaked me out and said your face starts seriously aging in your mid-twenties. I realized I had to start getting a bit more serious about my skin if I want to maintain it. Hence, my recent obsession with serums. According…

Settle In

You Can Settle In Without Settling

You know that feeling that pit in your stomach feeling, when you look around and your life doesn’t look the way you want it to. You want more, you know you’re capable of more, you deserve better, but you look around and life just isn’t what you want it to be. You refuse to settle for this life. You’re so determined to get to where you want to go, that where you’re at almost drains you. You can’t enjoy the…

You Don’t Have To Dream Big To Be Happy

I just need to get something off my chest, it weighs on me a bit. I hate the thought of someone watching me say things like “chase your dreams,” “take risks,” or use hashtags like #dreambig and feel like if they have no desire to do those things there is something wrong with that. To be clear, those are things that make ME happy; thinking big, having something seemingly unattainable to work towards, taking risks and putting my creative work…

My Evolution Of Optimism

Does anyone else agree that your twenties are basically just a broken record of feeling like you know EXACTLY who you are and what you want only to find that a year later you look back and say, “what the hell was I thinking?” Or, am I the only one? I knew for about year before the blog launched that I wanted to start blogging, so naturally I started doing some writing. I just found this post written from about a…
