don’t just take it from me…

If you’ve read my blog before, then you know I talk a whole lot about Intuitive Eating (IE) and Health at Every Size (HAES).

my playlist for life

Music is a powerful thing. It’s gotten me through some of the best and worst times of my life. Whether I’ve felt happy, sad, joyful confused, excited, angry, or anything in between, music has been there for me- making the most profound impact on my life. To me, it doesn’t matter what genre of music it is- I love it all (except screamo…my ears can’t take that haha). I love the feeling I get when I connect to a song. Read More

6 gifts to give yourself this holiday season

It’s the holiday season, which means you’re probably being inundated with “gift guides” from all across the internet, but have you ever noticed that gift guides are for everyone in your life…except you?

Although I love this time of year and love giving gifts even more, I don’t think we ever really stop and think about the gifts we should give ourselves. Read More

The 14 Things You Need to Experience in Tucson, Arizona

 

I just finished my first trip to Tucson, Arizona and let me tell you, it was one of the best trips I’ve ever taken! I never really thought of Tucson as a place I would like to travel to, but since my mom was house sitting for a friend and offered for me to come and visit, I thought “why not!” My mom and I ventured all over the city (which is ginormous btw- 227 square miles to be exact!) to take in some of the best eats, sights, and shops! If you’re planning a trip to Tucson or never even thought about visiting until you read this, I hope this post will help make your decision and planning that much easier!Read More

On Being Unapologetically Single

For the past 4 years I’ve been single and for roughly 2 of those years I’ve been unapologetically single. You may be wondering “what does being unapologetically single even mean”? Well, it means exactly how it sounds- not expressing regret for being single and that includes not only to the world, but also to yourself. Now don’t think this post is just for you, single people- that’s right, it’s also for people who are in relationships! I can guarantee you that if you aren’t unapologetically single yourself, you know someone who is. Read More

Why a Social Media Cleanse Could Do You Some Good

Let’s talk about social media. It can be both a blessing and a curse, both good and evil, and both positive and negative.

In this day and age we spend as much time, if not more time, on social media than we do with actual people. I’m not going to lie, as both a millennial and a full-time social media professional I spend a huge chunk of my time scrolling through social media feeds. I’ll see things that will make me laugh, learn, and smile, but I’ll also run into things that make me upset or trigger my eating disorder (ED) thoughts to surface. When this happens, I’ve had to learn how to deal with it and, for me, that means unfollowing or deleting people I follow.Read More

I’m the kind of person who will try out a million beauty products before I find something I absolutely love, so it’s safe to say I’ve experienced my fair share of products!

Not going to lie, I love me some Lorac eyeshadow and Too Faced mascara, but I can’t afford to buy those items on the regular (#BallinOnABudget). Favorite products have come and gone throughout the years, but these 6 have stayed with me the whole way! Maybe you’ve heard of all of them, or maybe you’ve heard of none of them- either way I hope you discover some of your new favorite products in mine! Read More

The 9 Places you need to visit in NYC (in my opinion)

My biggest goal for my first trip to New York was to experience the city like a local would. This meant no chain restaurants and as little touristy things as possible. Although you’ll see that I did some traditional things a tourist would do in NYC (it’s hard to avoid everything touristy), I also found some hidden gems that your average NYC tourist may not know about! I’m so excited to share the adventures I took on this trip with all of you! I had the time of my life in the three short days I spent there! New York has easily become my favorite city (a close second to New Orleans and Austin)! Read More
