Quarantine Chronicles: Mental Health

So yeah, the whole blogging everyday thing didn’t last very long; in all honesty, I wasn’t expecting it to. At first, it was something that would take up some time everyday, and then it was something I looked forward to and had all these ideas for, and slowly but surely it became something I dreadedContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Mental Health”

Quarantine Chronicles: 3O More Days??

So when I started re-writing this blog last week, I was actually pretty excited about chronicling my everyday journey through these unprecedented times. Now, I’m like wtf am I supposed to actually write about for another 30 days (or more). Most of my days are the same: Wake up, scroll through socials, will myself outContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: 3O More Days??”

Quarantine…

So here we are, once again… It’s been a while. But there’s no time like quarantine to start writing again. I’ve fully exhausted all other options: I showered, ate all the snacks, caught up with all my Netflix shows, downloaded TikTok and even interacted with the rest of the people in my house. I literallyContinue reading “Quarantine…”

Great, a Zit: Tips for Dealing with Acne

We’ve all been there: You wake up one morning full of hope and promise and then *boom* you just happen to glance in the mirror and see a zit the size of Mt. Everest right in the middle of your face.

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”
