Now before you all start saying I’m a crazy person, let’s just take a minute. Hear me out! Obviously we all know that periods have a lot of unfortunate parts to them. Believe me, I would know! I’m the girl who’s cramps are sometimes so painful that they make me nauseous. And they were even worse when I was a teenager before I began birth control pills. That being said, I really do think that periods sometimes get a bad rep despite all of the good things they provide our bodies with!

It’s pretty easy to get caught up in today’s problems and tomorrow’s anxieties. I mean, it’s pretty hard not to get stressed out. Bills keep coming up (annoying AF how they keep doing that like…every month), relationships have ups and downs, your job gets overwhelming, your dog pees on your bed (I’m looking at you, sausage dog – life gets stressful. But how often do you look back at your old goals, hopes,

Ah, relationships and love. The topic on so many people’s minds from the time we’re old enough to have our first crushes (how old were you when that happened, btw? I feel like everyone’s is different and I’m curious to hear your answers!). We all experience romantic connection at some point or another, some of us with multiple people throughout our lives. But how do you know if your relationship is a healthy one that can withstand the test of time?

Life in your twenties and thirties can be confusing. One minute you’re on top of the world, and the next it can feel like pretty much everything is crashing down. I always thought a quarter life crisis was something you had once, like when a middle aged single dad goes through a mid-life crisis and buys a yellow Porsche and takes up tennis and maybe also joins Tinder. Turns out though, the quarter life crisis can strike any time,

Building a life you love isn’t just one thing. Usually, it’s finding a career you’re seriously passionate about, figuring out how to make enough money to do everything that you want to do without stressing over finances, finding someone you love to share your life with, surrounding yourself with awesome friends that support you, and having the time, money, and means to do all the things you like to do. When you put it down on paper like that,

There is a lot of talk all over the place about something called “work-life balance”. There’s a lot of reading material on the subject, but honestly, it’s a little confusing. The traditional model of work/life that always kind of bugged me is this:

  1. Find out what you’re good at
  2. Choose a career where you can use those skills
  3. Work hard, climb the ladder, make money
  4. Use that money to do things you actually enjoy
  5. Try to carve out time outside of work for the “important things”

Do you ever have one of those moments where it feels like work is your whole life? As in: you haven’t attended any non blog related social events in months, you talk to more people on Instagram and in blog comment sections than you do in real life, and you have to tear the phone out of your own hands so you stop building your Pinterest boards at 1am? Today, while hanging out in my favorite blog &

If you’re ready to give up, that means you’ve already taken a very important step – you’ve made the leap, taken a risk, done something big! To feel like giving up means you have to have started something already, which is HUGE. It’s also the most important thing to remember when you get to a point that makes you feel like throwing in the towel; at some point in time you wanted to do this,

Today is a day that everyone makes a point to be grateful – after all, it’s Thanksgiving! It’s a day to let your loved ones know you love them, text the friends you haven’t talked to in months, think about the things you love in your life, and say ‘thanks’ before you chow down on a (huge) amount of food. It’s a great holiday; honestly, I’m a sucker for any holiday that heavily revolves around food and allows me to wear something that I may or may not have purchased in the Target maternity section (the dresses are cute and roomy,
