Ocean of Elegance – Product Review

Prom was last night but before I went, I desperately needed a dress that was pretty but that wouldn’t be exactly like every other girl’s dress. In my search for a dress, a friend of mine sent me picture of dress that she sort of liked from Lulu’s. I had previously heard of Lulu’s but…

A Letter To Girls

To: All girls * You don’t have to justify your love for someone. No matter who that person is, as long as you love them and as long as you know it and feel it in your heart and mind and soul, your love is valid. * You are allowed to feel free and to…

Living In The Shadows

Usually it happens that the younger siblings sort of live in the shadow of their older siblings. The older siblings have such impressive accomplishments and such refined skills and the younger siblings end up living in the shadows, never really given the spotlight. For me I think it’s the other way around. I’m the oldest child…

Hope

Life is hard. This isn’t some new or inspiring idea though, I mean, life has always been hard and it will continue to be hard. Life has this really funny way of throwing all of these challenges at us and sometimes it is so easy to feel like there is no possible way that any…

Scars

Fitness Goals

For the past few years every time New Year’s comes around I’ve been one of those people. You know the ones. The ones who set New Year’s resolutions like: “This year I’m going to work out for at least 30 minutes every day!” or “This year I’m going to hit the gym so hard that by the…

Beauty

Growing up I always had a bunch of girl friends who were similar to me in personality but really different from me in appearance. It wasn’t a bad thing of course, I mean everyone is their own person and everyone looks and acts and is different. I guess my problem was that as I got older, I…

I Took A Break From Social Media

So sometime in the last week I started having some sort of freaky dreams that seemed to connect to things I had seen on social media before going to bed. It was pretty scary how the things I saw online were retained in my memory and how they were warped in my dreams and it…

You Can Do Anything

Late last month I applied to be part of a selective program at my future college. The application process included completion of 2 essays, a resume, and a phone call interview. The essays were pretty simple to write but I was SO nervous for the phone call interview. The day of the phone call, I…

What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?

What do you want to be when you grow up? Ah. The age old question. Well. In first grade, I wanted to be a magician. That is, until I realized that “magic” isn’t exactly something you can do for a living.  In second grade I would have sworn to anyone I wanted to be a…
