Benefits of being Single

As much as being in a relationship can be wonderful, being single can be just as great (no, really). Now when Valentines Day comes around, it really is up to you to decide just how you interpret the one day in the year where people have more mixed emotions about these 24 hours than what toppings…

All the Reasons Why Your 20s are One Big Paradox

If I have learned anything about being in your twenties, it’s that it’s a time period full of contradictions. It’s supposed to be some of the best years of your life, when your identity forms solidly into the person you have always meant to become and your overall mindset is clearer than ever. I’m not sure…

New Articles Published!

It’s always exciting when you see a new article you wrote published, but when you have two back-to-back, now THAT calls for a celebration 🙂 So, I am not a coffee fan (gasp!), but I tend to rely on other options as well. Be sure to check out http://thehautemess.com and read about other healthier alternatives to coffee…

Why we all need our own revival like Selena Gomez

So I recently had another article published on The Haute Mess! I may sound cheesy, but I can’t help but do the happy dance whenever I see another one of my pieces published!

Hometown Adventures

So I’m at a point in my life where I’m ready to start a new beginning. While I can’t fully start over in a different city or with different people (not saying I don’t love my friends and family I surround myself with), but sometimes you just want adventure #eatpraylovemoment That being said, I do…

One thing I’ve learned within myself and something that could apply to other females is the consistent need to say the word “Sorry.” Regardless of what the situation is, how we feel or how the other person feels, we always say sorry. It’s almost like we are genetically made to have an obligation to apologize for every…

An Awkward Girl Enters a Bar

I may sound like a rarity, but I actually waited until I turned 21 until having my first alcoholic drink. There has always been so much excitement and angst for that moment of ultimate freedom to enter places you have never had access to and the ability to be like Carrie Bradshaw and order that…

Real Talk: The Harsh Realities of Being in Your Twenties

If I have learned one thing about being in your twenties, it’s that it is a time period filled with harsh realities. I used to count the days until I can say I’m living in my second decade, enjoying every wonderful moment it has to bring. What I didn’t realize is how much shit you…
