10 Reasons to Be Happy

There’s ALWAYS something to smile about. In my life, I have found that I can’t stay grumpy for very long. For one, frown lines aren’t sexy and being a grump isn’t fun. So, whenever I feel like the world is against me, I think about all the reason why the world is for me. #BLESSED…

Introversion or Shyness?

Are you that person in work meeting, who doesn’t contribute new ideas right away? I can be! I definitely like to process any new information I’ve gained and come back with ideas later in the day then at the end of work meetings. If this sounds like you then you are probably a work introvert….

Be Kind To Yourself

Life can be so demanding. Although, I like to think myself as someone who puts self-care on top of her to-do list,  there are time when I  find myself restless and unmotivated. I am a firm believer that we do not get what we want, we get what we deserve. There are so many beautiful things in…

Bright Smile | Oil Pulling

Ok, first thing is first: this is gross. But it works! Oil pulling is a natural organic way to brighten your smile and whiten your teeth. It also has other benefits such as preventing tooth decay, gingivitis, bad breath and cavities! (good news for my sweet tooth 😋) I wanted to try oil pulling for different…

Sculpted Brows | Simple and Bold

When did thick eyebrows get so cool? Boys used to make so much fun of my caterpillars while I was in school. It wasn’t until the last couple of years that the bold eyebrow look became super popular and I totally love it! I’ve always loved my thick eyebrows even when boys would make fun…

Fun Day at Malibu Wines

I recently turned 26, and instead of having a mental quarter life meltdown, I invited my close friends and my beau for a day of wine savoring and drinking at Malibu Wines.  I had been here once before for a close friend’s birthday, but for less than two hours. I didn’t get to enjoy the…

Why We Should Get Moving…

Although I don’t love the physical aspect of exercising as much as I wish I did, I do love how my body and mind feel afterwards. I mainly do yoga for my mental sanity, and the physical aspect is an added bonus. Here and there I’ll go to gym, on runs, or even quick 20…

Start Your Day by Setting Your Intention

“The beginning of your day is a fantastic place to plant the seed”- Kathryn Budig

Waking up each morning in a good mood doesn’t come naturally to everyone, including me. Some of us want to keep sleeping, even if we have a long day ahead and already slept more than 8 hours (that’s me!) or wake up in a groggy mood because we didn’t get enough rest (that’s usually everyone else I know). There are some days when I can wake up and kickass, but there are also a lot of days where I wish I had a personal valet to get me out of my bed vortex.

Going With the Flow & Embracing the Uncertainty

It’s been a little over a month of no longer being a student and the most valuable lesson I’ve learned so far is to embrace the uncertainty of my “journey”(“Don’t stop believing”). I came to the realization that we as humans, no matter where we are in life, don’t really ever know what the french is…

Learning to receive

After a three-month hiatus, I am finally back in cyberspace and ready to blog my life away (kinda)! So here we go..first blog post as a college graduate.. I always thought my last semester of college was going to be a breeze. Little did I know, I’d end up crying actual tears. A 27-page thesis…
