The Perfect Everyday Accessory –

PicMonkey Collage-2This weekend I went to the NW Women’s Show in Seattle and came across a booth with hundreds of headbands in many different patterns! Having grown up with unruly hair, I formed an everyday relationship with simple black elastic headbands and never thought twice about it. When I saw these, I instantly thought about how practical and adorable they were! So many options for so many different outfits – and on top of that, you’ll never have a bad hair day again!

I highly recommend everyone add at least one of theses trendy pieces to your collection! Handmade by Danielle and her team.

The Best Time for New Beginnings is Now –

And so the the day has come that I have finally decided to share my story and my life with others. I have a strong love for life and everything it has to offer, but only recently have I gained the ability to appreciate everything I have had right in front of me.

I spent countless days and nights listening to sad music, with tears in my eyes, asking the universe, ‘Why Me?’. I felt as though I had to fight 5x harder than the average person to get through a day without wanting to break down. You know how everyone says “It gets easier.”? Well, they’re right! I know what you’re thinking…I was that person who would look them in the eye and say ‘No! Walk a day in my shoes and then tell me it will get easier.’

I have dealt with bullying, heartbreak, depression, anxiety, extremely low self esteem, body image issues, ect. I can relate with so many different people. The past year was probably one of the worst years of my life. There was one day specifically, where I felt I was  at an all time low and I was so tired of fighting. I realized at that moment, thats exactly what I have been doing my whole life, fighting. Fighting to be heard, fighting to be seen, fighting to be loved, fighting to feel loved, fighting to be happy. Im a fighter, and I will not quit.

The best thing I have done, was find hobbies that I can put my thoughts and energy into. Thats where this blog comes in –  Beauty, fashion, traveling, and of course life, are all a very important part of who I am. I want to be able to share this new adventure with the world and hopefully help others realize that there is nothing more beautiful than the life that you create for yourself.
