An internal struggle: strong vs sweet

  “You’ll never be called a sweet little girl” – my middle school teacher. Seems harsh, no? Let me give you context because this isn’t a pity party. This is actually a great thing that happened. I went to a private middle school but a public elementary and high school. I needed a little extra attention (nothing has changed) in……

How To: Set Your Goals

It’s basically September. Which means it’s basically October, which means it’s basically Halloween, which means it’s basically Thanksgiving, which means it’s basically Christmas, which means it’s basically New Year’s Eve, which means its basically 2019. Welcome to my train of thought. Because it’s not actually 2019, and we still have time (like technically, but not really), I have felt the……

Bad days, haters, etc. I’ve been getting a lot of requests for a post about another topic that seems to be left out of the blogging space yet it’s the topic fueling  blogging to begin with.

How to trick yourself into believing your life is great. A theory.

  Why are we so hard on ourselves? Why can people give us complements but we don’t give ourselves complements? My theory is that it’s all about perspective. You know how people say from the outside looking in she has a perfect life but she’s really torn up on the inside…? First of all that is so sad and I’m……

Why haters hate. An investigation.

  Some people openly criticize you – either to your face or behind your back. Because I blog, I feel like I put myself under a microscope and am basically inviting people to ridicule me. Which is great because I definitely don’t have social anxiety… (Just kidding, please like me). Most people are optimistic and nice and aren’t the worst.……

How to Have a Puppy (And a Life)

So I recently purchased a puppy…  impulsively. I recognize that an impulse buy is fine but most people don’t impulse buy a life-altering living thing. But I have to tell you, every life-altering decision I have made, has been impulsive. I’m a gut-person. So when I have a gut feeling and I am determined to see it through, things get a little impulsive. That’s neither here nor there. The point is, now I have a dog. But I still live in an apartment, work a fulltime job, and do fun things on the weekend and have a life. It’s really…

How to Side Hustle: Blogging 101

I’ve been getting a lot of requests on how to start blogging and why I started blogging. Chances are, if you’re thinking about starting a blog – you should! If it is something that you want to do but you’re worried about how much time it will take or how people may judge you, that is totally normal but don’t let it cloud your judgment. Take your time and feel out what you want, but don’t let worries like that get in your way.

// Why I blog //

For me, I wanted to do marketing in the fashion industry. I…
