My First Month in San Diego

I have officially been in San Diego for one month. It’s crazy to think three months ago I made the decision to move out here. It’s even crazier to think that I actually did it. This first month has been a whirlwind of emotions and new experiences. My biggest takeaways thus far: get used to the discomfort, nothing lasts forever, and everything figures itself out. So while I don’t know…

My Cross Country Roadtrip Itinerary

Now that I’ve settled a bit in San Diego, it’s time for some road trip details! If you haven’t watched my road trip vlog yet, you can watch here! To give you a rundown, our goal was to get to Denver ASAP. It’s not that we didn’t want to see anything between Maryland and Colorado….we just REALLY wanted take our time to see everything driving from Colorado to California. I’m…

I’m Moving to California!

Hi everyone! Welcome back to my blog. I’m super excited to announce that I’m moving to California!! This is a little spontaneous but also a little bit planned at the same time. I’m hoping to explain a little more in a future vlog or blog post. If you’re interested in the backstory and how we got to this point, let me know in the comments! This vlog is taking you…

My First Vlog!

Hi everyone! So glad to be back and blogging. I have a lot of updates coming and I can’t wait to share. First things first, my first vlog! It’s all a work in progress so it’s no where near perfect. I know I’m going to learn and grow through each video and I can’t wait for you all to grow with me. A lot of exciting things are in the…

Let’s Talk: Toxic Positivity

With all the heaviness going on in the world, I know I’m not the only one feeling it. I’ve spoken with so many people who are being tested this season, and while it’s important to stay positive and optimistic, there is such thing as too much. It actually has a name: toxic positivity. I wanted to take the time and break this concept down further as it’s come up often…

What gets you through the bad times

Hi fam. I figured it’s been a minute so here I am. Not going to lie I’m feeling very uninspired at the moment so we’ll see where this post gets me. One word to describe the last 4 months of my life: lost. My life feels like a giant question mark and I’m finding myself asking more often than not “how the hell is this all supposed to make sense…

Sunday Recap: Sifting Through Your Emotions

I know this is a late one, but I honestly was not planning on writing today. I’ve been feeling very uninspired and emotional recently-I’ve heard this from a lot of my friends as well. Things just feel more overwhelming than usual.  I became very anxious earlier this evening. This has been happening every few days now, and when it does I feel lost and insecure. Tonight was my breaking point…

all about burn out. what it is and what to do.

Let me paint you a picture of how the last couple weeks have been for me: I wake up in the morning with a desire to do absolutely nothing except fall back asleep. I go through my day feeling exhausted, no matter how many cups of coffee or hours of sleep I’ve gotten throughout the night. I’m irritable, moody, and just waiting to crawl back into bed when I get…

What I’ve Been doing During Quarantine

Hi everyone! I thought for this post, I would take you through what I’ve been up to during this quarantine. I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to get a little worn down by the current situation. I’m finding myself becoming super antsy to get up and get going again. Like seriously, when can I book a flight? So I thought to put things into perspective, I’d reflect a…

Sunday Recap: You Control Your Mindset.

Happy Sunday fam. Another quarantine week down. With society having to slow down a bit, it’s given me a lot more room to focus on myself and how I handle my everyday experiences. I like to think I’m getting a lot better at shifting my environment when something bothers me. I’ve been catching myself quickly when I have a sour attitude or snap at others. Everyday I’m realizing how in…

New Moon Ritual & Taurus Season

Happy Taurus season everybody! While Sunday marks the day of a new astrological season, I wanted to focus this post on the upcoming new moon on April 22nd. The new moon is always in the sign of the new season. Respectively, this new moon is in the sign of Taurus. So what the hell does that mean? Taurus is the sign of dependability, nurture, and home. It’s about comfort and…

My Skincare Routine

Ever since high school, I was obsessed with skincare. I had a whole routine going, morning and night. I was into skincare before skincare was even a thing. Clean & Clear was my go-to back in the day, but lately I’ve been dabbling in natural products. Not too much has changed with my skincare process, I still cleanse, tone and moisturize every morning and evening, but the products I use…

Sunday Recap: COVID-19 Edition

Since I haven’t done a Sunday Recap in awhile, I thought I would catch you up on my COVID-19 experience. Right now I live in Maryland, and we are currently under a stay-at-home order. Luckily, I work for an essential business and am still able to go into the office everyday. This has definitely kept me in a routine, and the stress of income hasn’t been an issue thus far.…

Sunday Recap: Giving Yourself Room to Feel

The past few weeks have been more emotional than I have lead myself on to believe. There is a lot inside me that I have pushed down unknowingly. I have been feeling a lot of anger recently. Towards almost everything in my life. What’s frustrating is that I can’t pinpoint the source and I also can’t control it. I went through my work week in Las Vegas and came home…

Storytime: My Flight to Las Vegas

So last week I was in Las Vegas for work. I touched on this a little in my Sunday Recap post, my friends told me this was a blog-worthy story so here we are. Hope you enjoy. It was definitely one of my more interesting flight experiences. To give you a background, this flight was leaving Baltimore at 7pm and landing in Las Vegas at 2am EST. So no part…

Sunday Recap: It Doesn’t Have to Be So Serious

If you’re interested in my current situation: I am at the airport, waiting on my delayed flight to Las Vegas, with 5 broken nails and no outlets in site. If that isn’t a metaphor for the past week, I don’t know what is. This week was a weird one for me. I wasn’t sleeping well, and by now we should all know that I am not on my A-game when…

The Color Factory

Hi everyone! Back in the fall, I visited The Color Factory in New York City. It was SO MUCH FUN. This past weekend, I had a wedding in Houston, TX and lucky me, found out there was a Color Factory there too! So I told my family we had to make time for this place. Enough talking, the pictures will speak for themselves. Enjoy! And if you’re in Houston or…

2019 Lessons

I know we’re all joking about how 2019 is FINALLY over, I’m right there with everyone else. 2019 was a bitch. To say the least. But with struggle comes great lessons. I’ve truly made some big shifts in the past 365 days, all for the better. I went through some difficult times and was sitting at rock bottom for awhile. But closing out the year, it all makes sense now.…

Life Lately: Growth is not Consistent.

Another 5am blog post coming at you. Recently I’ve been a little off. Usually when this happens, I’m falling into a rut. Not sure what causes these ruts for me, but they happen to all of us. Routine feels good until it gets boring. Not having a routine is exhilarating until it gets reckless. It’s all a balancing act. Everyone is different, but my major warning sign that I’m developing…

Feeling Burnt Out

This past week has been tough for me. I was getting stuff done but I couldn’t seem to keep up. I was waking up late, which led to a shortened morning routine. I was not on top of my meals like I have been. I skipped the gym because I needed to make up hours at work. I just couldn’t keep to my schedule. Looking back at the weekend prior,…
