I think it’s important as a writer to believe in what you are saying. How can I expect my readers to relate to something when I don’t even relate to it myself?

How to Successfully Reduce Your Screen Time and The Benefits of Doing It

A resolution I had for this year was to be more present in the moment and spend less time on electronic devices.

4 Advantages Of Taking A Blogging Break

Even the most successful people in the world need a break sometimes, and I’m here to tell you it’s okay to take a break.

My Blogging Journey

My Blogging Journey

I want to start out by saying thank you to all that have followed me. Less than a month ago I had around 160 followers and I cant quite believe I have hit 200 that fast after restarting. I appreciate every like, comment and view I receive. I just want to say thank you!

I always struggled reading blogs and seeing nothing but perfect hair, nails and skin and wanted to show the world that the perfection they were seeing didn’t exist.
