Keeping a Positivity Journal.

In my Loving Yourself post, I mentioned keeping a positivity journal, and how therapeutic it has been for me. Throughout my year of blogging I have mentioned journaling several times in different posts, and I’ve talked about how I keep separate journals for different things. I have a poetry journal I started for a creative writing class, a journal where I write stream of conscious summaries of my day, and if I am angry or upset, I write about that in a folder on Google Docs, because hearing the clanking of the keys as I angrily type is actually quite… View Post

The Strength is in Us.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Soffe for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. I’ve been focusing a lot on my health lately, in all domains: mental, physical, and emotional. In doing so, I’ve found that you can’t really improve one without seeing the others improve, too. The biggest health booster for me has been going to the gym and working out.

Recently I started regularly working out with my boyfriend, focusing on cardio and… View Post

With that said, I always pay special attention to my makeup, and this year I want to rock the classic red lip. I had always been hesitant before. I didn’t think I could pull it off for two reasons: my baby face and my slightly discolored teeth. Luckily, I’m starting to (finally!) grow out of my baby face, and I was given a box of Crest 3D White Luxe Supreme FlexFit Whitestrips to test out… View Post

Get a workout with Just Dance 2015

With the winter coming, it is so much harder to get motivated to get up and get moving. Despite knowing how important staying active is, I would much rather stay in and hang out in the comfort of my own room. Luckily I recently got the opportunity to test out the ultimate compromise: Just Dance 2015. It’s a videogame that gets you up off the couch and dancing along to popular songs, new and old. I was super excited to try it out and even more excited to hear the tracklist! The songs were super fun and upbeat and relevant today,… View Post
