six month reflection

6 years ago my dad told me that one day I would have a testimony to share. He told me that what I was going through at the time God would use and it would inspire others one day. No, not me. Not this. No way. I fought my circumstance and the bigger picture as…

Galentines Influenster VoxBox: Review

I was lucky enough to be chosen to receive another COMPLIMENTARY Vox Box from Influenster. Yes, ma’am, that’s right, everything I’m about to review was given to me for free to use and review! I will even let you in on how I got these products for free at the end of the blog! Honestly,…

Valentine’s Day

You either love it or hate it. Unless you’re like me and you’ve been single every Valentine’s day of your entire life and you just simply do not care about the day at all and go on about it as if it were any other pointless holiday on the calendar (looking at you April Fool’s…

talking to others

This post is going to go pretty hand-in-hand with my last post— they tie together pretty seamlessly. I just feel like the way we talk to ourselves and to others is so important in our daily walk. It takes a lot of discipline and hard work to get to a point where we can edify…

self talk

Everyone has been doing the 10 year puberty challenge on Facebook. I honestly think things like that are really fun and it breaks up a lot of the negativity that can happen on social media and in the world in general. But it also really got me to thinking. We change in looks over time,…

to my single girls:

I’ve been single for awhile, that’s no secret or anything I’m ashamed of at all. I’ve been single for a little over two years, actually. My last relationship was very toxic; soul sucking, bring you to the edge of jumping, take an entire year and a half to actually heal, toxic. I’ve needed these two…

December

Wow. If you’ve ever felt like the phrase “time flies” is over said or dramatic then I hope this month changed your mind. I literally feel like I blinked and now Christmas is over and New years is just a week away. But to be honest, as much as I love Christmas lights, Christmas movies,…

Let It Snow Vox Box: Review

I first heard of Influenster on a sponsored Instagram story. I thought that exchanging my honest reviews in exchange for potential free product was probably too good to be true…but my initial thought was proved wrong.  I signed up, downloaded the app, and got to reviewing. I linked all my social media and even though…

goals

I opened up my turquoise journal to one of the first pages and this is what was written: GOALS 2018 Grow blog following Find steady job Start savings account Spend more time in Nashville Have a good birthday These were my simple requests that I asked of myself on November 18th, 2017. I don’t even…
