Catching Up

Hey loves! I apologize for being absent for so long, but I’ve been incredibly busy and I haven’t felt inspired to write. I went from writing until three in the morning every night as a teenager to forcing myself to sit down, write, and blog as an adult. I love words, writing, and literature, but as a busy mama I have to remind myself that sometimes I need to just sit down, quiet the world, […]

Happy International Women’s Day to all of the badass women out there who’ve made marks on this world. To all of the selfless mamas that care for children (some of them without a partner) and raise the next generation of inspiring individuals, thank you. To all of the female nurses and doctors that keep us alive and comfort us in times of great pain with soothing words, thank you. To all of our favorite female […]

Introduction Ever since I was a little girl I’ve loved fashion, styling, and shopping. I vividly remember crying over a cheetah print coat at Target when I was a little girl. I wanted a Barbie set and the coat, but my dad told me I had to pick between the two (a huge decision for a five year old), because they were both pricey. I took a moment to think about what I really wanted. […]

I know that we’re not going as many places or getting dressed up as often due to the current restrictions from COVID-19, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get dressed up every day (even if we’re just sitting at home). I love shopping for clothes, styling my outfits, and flipping through the glossy pages of fashion magazines to soak up […]

Letting Go of a Good Woman

I know that there are just as many good men out there as there are women (ladies, I know some of you will argue that), but regardless of your views on the male population, finding a good woman isn’t an easy task, just as finding a good man isn’t an easy task. The world is filled with faces, but far too many of them are wearing masks. I was with someone for four years who […]

Life After Sexual Assault

I’ve been wanting to write about this ever since the Kavanaugh case began, and I’ve always been very open and honest about what happened to me, years back, but I’ve also been trying to focus on only positive feelings during my pregnancy. For those who don’t know, I was raped when I was sixteen years old, by a guy who was one of my closest friends (at the time). He knew me as a person, was close […]

Always

Livvy opened her medicine cabinet and reached for a small pill bottle. Only one pale pill entered her mouth, but she craved them all. It was a depression she knew very well; an old friend. Outside her apartment window raindrops gathered on the glass. She stained her lips with berry colored lipstick, and smiled briefly at herself in the mirror. A smile could change an entire day, so she smiled often. She combed through her […]
