I am so frustrated. I am a health conscious person and I know a lot about living a healthy lifestyle. I know what foods to put into my body to make me feel the best, the bare minimum amount of sleep I need to function (I refuse to get less!), and how much I need to move around each day not to feel lethargic. And I know I’m lucky to know all that I do about health. I’ve done research, taken classes, and figured things out through trial and error. But a lot of people get their health advice from… View Post

For those of you who don’t know – I moved back to Illinois from New York about 3 weeks ago. I lived in New York for half a year, and while it was a great experience, it turns out that the big city doesn’t mix too well with this Midwestern girl. The fast pace, fragrant streets, and general grime stressed me and my skin out. Growing up I was #blessed with pretty docile skin.

Your twenties is when your adult… View Post

This post brought to you by Pure Silk Shave Cream. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Mostly Morgan. Summers used to mean lazy days and pool floats, but this year I’ve got my first “big girl” job in the city and so I’ve been working long days and coming home to do more work for my own personal projects. I love my internship and keeping up with my blogs, but every now and then I just need to slow down, unwind, and destress. I usually don’t feel myself getting overwhelmed until it’s too late so I’ve been sure to work self-care… View Post

I am going to be talking a lot about my move to New York in coming posts because, really, how could I not? My life has definitely taken an unexpected (and exciting!) turn, and every post idea I’ve brainstormed up as of late has something to do with the move. Today I’ve teamed up with Dove to talk about 6 things nobody warned me about before moving to the city. I was told all about spotting Craigslist scams and finding the best food (there are vegetarian restaurants as far as the eye can see, y’all!), but there were a lot of important things… View Post
