    10 Quotes I Try To Live By

    In life we need to be our own inspirational speakers, to drop everything at times and be personal cheerleaders. Who are we if we are not ourselves before anything else? Here are 10 quotes I try to live by in my day to day life… 1. “Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” –  Barack Obama  2. “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” – Dr. Seuss 3. “You…

    No Make-up, Make-up.

    Believe it or not, roughly about 2 years ago, I was that girl. The type of girl that couldn’t leave the house without it. The girl that would run to the bathroom every time she had a surprise visit. I unnaturally fell the need to wear make-up everywhere and anywhere to feel the slightest of beauty, making it a necessity rather then a want. It took me a while with the push of family and friends to get me to look at my refection differently. From a young age I’ve had the same repetitive (facial) skin problem. Why wouldn’t my human finger turn into a virtual rubber to rid these…

    18 Going On 22

    Time machine please! Have I missed something? It really does not feel like I’ve been on this earth for 18 years, much less to 22. A. Whole. 22. It’s almost like I’ve blinked at young and opened my eyes at old. I know that’s an exaggeration, don’t ‘@’ me! However, time truly fly’s. They say, “with age comes wisdom” but, with age comes wrinkles and bags! not just the ones under your eyes but the bags or baggage created by yourself and the people you’ll meet, the ones you grow to love and some that unfortunately disappear. I don’t really know how to be happy about that. Imagine, I am…

    My Idea Of The Perfect Day

    My ‘perfect day’… defiantly Autumn. Full stop. No questions asked. It’s that one day i would find myself waking up naturally to a warm golden sun beaming through my blinds. My face giving off that peaceful , motivated and calm array of feelings. Wakey Wakey sunshine!, my inner self says to my being in a soft and subtle voice roughly at around 7:00am or 7:30 latest. Pray. 7:30 / 8:00 – Still in a slight daze. Checking my phone would probably be the first thing on my to do list. To check social media, Emails, Messages and Calls (Maybe a good morning text, wink wink!!). Then this is where it…

    Something Worth Missing

    I miss those smiles, those feelings; the thought of never ending friendships.  Friendships built in one summer. A summer I’ll never forget. I can’t help but sit here and smile, the smile which is slowly turning to laughter.  Now I’m full blown laughing.  I swear the people sitting to my left must think I’m a little unhinged. (“Well, ain’t that a damn shame”)  Thinking back to the day we genuinely first met… It was a barbecue; the barbecue that changed my life.  We were sat there, both me and my sister sipping on two cups of soda, too shy to mingle, so we laughed and conversed between us two.  Listening…

    Letter To Self

    Dear, You Hey baby girl, I felt like you were slowly losing your way. But now… you’re taking a leap of faith and pushing yourself to do something you’ve feared for a while now.  No overthinking, no rain checks and no disbelief. This blog post will be the first of many, so I thought this would be the perfect time to write a letter to you, otherwise being me. I want to dig deep into your feelings and address somethings I’ve seen in you lately. The good and the bad. One day you will look back at your life and see the changes you are trying so hard to make.…
