Dear Body: I Love You.

Hello, lovelies! I know I've mentioned Kathryn Budig's book Aim True before and how influential it has been to me during writer's block. In it, she challenges her readers to write their body a love letter. So Friday, on my day off, I sat on my balcony with my journal and I wrote. I wrote a … Continue reading Dear Body: I Love You.

Reflections of Myself: Past, Present, Future

Hello, lovelies! I've been reading Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret by Judy Blume lately. I started a reading challenge with my best friend and her husband at the beginning of the year. One of the requirements is a middle grade novel. I read those all the time as a YA lover, but have never … Continue reading Reflections of Myself: Past, Present, Future

What Vegetarianism Is Not

Hello, lovelies! Today's post will be short but sweet. Ever since starting this blog, I tossed around the idea of getting published on other sites, magazines, and other written word platforms. I was unsure of where to start and seriously lacking the confidence to do this. So, I just continued to write posts for my … Continue reading What Vegetarianism Is Not

Cutting Out Sugar: My Week With Lemons in My Hot Tea

Hello, lovelies! A few months ago I wrote about my struggle with sugar consumption. I am definitely addicted to that sweet stuff.

Writing + An Existential Crisis

They say the only cure to writer's block is to write more.  So, I'm going to try.  This feels like an oxymoron to me, because obviously if I didn't have writer's block I would write more. I have the desire to write, but when I sit down to write...nothing comes out.  Have I run out … Continue reading Writing + An Existential Crisis

Why I Deleted Facebook

A week ago, I deleted facebook and twitter off my phone. I've been having writer's block lately, as you may have noticed by the lack of posts. I don't know if it's a lack of inspiration, or adjusting to my new schedule from work, or what. But I found myself always checking facebook and twitter … Continue reading Why I Deleted Facebook

The Journey to Acceptance

I'm just going to be honest here: I have writer's block. It's a problem. I want to write. I want to keep posting blogs, but I'm finding that I'm at a loss for words. I haven't even been writing in my personal journal as much as normal. This is weird for me. I've been an avid journaler … Continue reading The Journey to Acceptance

Welcome to New York

Phew, it feels like it's been a while since I posted. It hasn't really been crazy long, but I feel like I've neglected this a bit. For that, I'm sorry. I've been in the middle of a job transition, which is always hectic, and then went to New York City for a girl's weekend over … Continue reading Welcome to New York
