I’ve Been Blogging for Two Years?!
Hey there, I JUST realized that today is the two year anniversary of this blog! I’m so thankful to have a safe space to write & be vulnerable. In a world that can very easily begin to feel dark, this blog provides me with an encouraging community that relates to my content & a fun [...]
Bottom line: it’s a whole lot harder to feel good about your body if you don’t feel good on the inside. Hi there! “Love yourself!” “Love your flaws!” “Your body is beautiful!” How often are we told these things? I’ve said them in previous posts, I’m sure. What we don’t hear as frequently though, is [...]

I wish I could tell you that the journey to body confidence is all rainbows & butterflies. I’m the first person to say that it’s hard! Some days, your favorite jeans aren’t fitting how they used to. Or you get out of the shower & don’t like the way your stomach looks; maybe your thighs [...]
Stepping Outside of my Comfort Zone
Wear the clothes you want to wear! I kid you not, one of my favorite outfits in 4th grade was a white skirt with black & white polka dot leggings underneath. In 5th grade, I wore a hot pink blazer with a pink & orange floral top under it. Bright colors, sequins, bold patterns, I [...]
