6 Things You Can’t Travel Without

Traveling is stressful. It’s stressful for your mind, body even soul. And it’s definitely stressful for your skin. Between airplane dryness and being introduced into different climates, it’s hard for your skin to keep up. One of the biggest things to help with travel-stressed skin is drinking water. I know, too simple, right? Well aContinue reading “6 Things You Can’t Travel Without”

Starting Fresh

Not that long ago (literally yesterday) I put a little Instagram poll out about whether or not I should incorporate my skincare knowledge into my blog. The response was an overwhelming yes, and people have already reached out with a few topics they’d like covered! Let me start by saying that I’m no expert, I’mContinue reading “Starting Fresh”

Life

Well it’s been a while since I’ve shared my inner monologue on here. I guess crippling anxiety and depression will keep you busy. Jk. Not really. It’s fine I’m in therapy. But life has indeed been very busy. I mean it has and it hasn’t. It feels like I do a lot of things thatContinue reading “Life”

[Good] Hair

Ever since I can remember, I’ve been keenly aware of my hair. Hating it. Loving it. Straightening it. Spending tons of money on it. My family fighting about it. And this was all by the age of 5. By 10 I started straightening my hair everyday. And last year I finally fulfilled my dream ofContinue reading “[Good] Hair”

Trauma

Trauma is bullshit. Anyone who tells you otherwise is dumb. There’s nothing beautiful or redemptive about trauma. There’s no strength in trauma. It just is; it’s trauma. It’s complex, and simple, but nothing more. The strength is what comes after the trauma. It starts when you finally are able to muster up what little strengthContinue reading “Trauma”

Left To Say

Silence surrounds us now. Where once words gushed through our mouths, flowing one on top of another, to be heard, to be understood. We wish we could unhear, wish we could go back to being dumb, as now we are mute. What’s there left to say? What’s there left to know? Are words even necessaryContinue reading “Left To Say”

Letting Go

It’s literally a question as old as time: How do we let go of things, even when we don’t want to? I would suppose that boundaries are a good preemptive measure. But who—at any age or emotional maturity level—is actually an expert at setting and maintaining all their boundaries? (If you are one of thoseContinue reading “Letting Go”

Sight

This week I decided to share a little something–kind of like a poem– I wrote! Sight As I look, What do I see? Darkness is too simple a word. It’s more liken to, the depths of all blackness. I’m at the bottom of a great cavern, where no light can penetrate. I turn and IContinue reading “Sight”

Intentionally, Unintentional.

Per what we’ve covered in the last few blog posts, I have very little idea about what I’m doing with my life; and that includes my dating life. This is partially due to the fact that a little over 7 months ago, my relationship of 2 years ended. I’ve been pretty candid about what allContinue reading “Intentionally, Unintentional.”

Health?

“Does this spark joy?” – Marie Kondo For the past 6 months of my life, I have been working hard to become “healthy”. That is such a broad statement so let me break it down. I have been working to identify unhealthy people, situations and emotions, and then rectify them by either saying goodbye orContinue reading “Health?”
