So what does the phrase "self love" actually mean? It's constantly thrown around alongside photos of face masks, solo vacations, and glasses of pink moscato. Yet, regardless of what social media says, it's more than just day trips to the spa and taking yourself out on a date. Self love is an ongoing process. It's not a sudden, epiphany-style moment of eureka like we see often on movies and television. It can progress, it can regress, and it needs constant maintenance. It's a lens. The lens in which you see yourself. Falling in love with your mind, your body, your voice, all of the moving parts that make up the being that is you. It's not the same for everyone. So, I asked you all. 25 of you shared your self love story with me 💗. Thank you to those who did. You’re inspiring.
It's that time again! I love the holidays. Food, parties, time with loved ones, and getting away from work makes me a happy girl. Plus, what other time of the year is it appropriate to spike your hot chocolate? Point made! However, what I DON'T love is being completely clueless about what gifts to buy - especially when your girl is "balling on a budget" (do people still say that?). So, this post is for anyone who's looking to get gifts for a special lady in your life in an affordable way. Be it your "bae," friend, or family member, here are some gifts that any girl would love!
Post-Grad has taught me some things that have been hard to swallow. This is definitely my best blog post so far. It's a long one, but take the time to read. See if you can relate.
