In light of Thanksgiving, I want to share with you my two latest videos.
If you’re looking for Thanksgiving outfit inspirations, look no further! Here are 3 thanksgiving outfits to inspire you. And if you don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, these are great everyday fall outfits too =)
I also did the Gratitude Challenge/Tag. I challenge you to as well. Even if you don’t end up filming it, or writing it down, it’s a good reflective challenge to do.
Thank you for watching & reading. Don’t forget to Subscribe to my YouTube channel!
Otherwise, have a great week =)
And as always, I wish you the best.
The sun has risen. It is a new day. May we be bolder and stronger to fight for justice and stand for those of us who can’t. May we be more kind and more compassionate. May we realize that hurt is real, pain is real, injustice is real. May we have courage to stand for those in fear, to stand for what is right, to stand for those who hurt. May we continue to stand for peace and justice. May we be light in the darkness.
I thought it’s only appropriate to share with you 25 things I’ve learned since I’m officially 25 today!!
The past few years have been a whirlwind, especially this past year. But I’m excited for what’s to come. When I was young, I used to wonder what I would be like and look like at the age of 25. And here I am, nothing like the person I thought I would be, but someone I’m glad I’ve become.
I also wanted to share some photos from past outfit shoots that never made it to the blog. These photos reflect a part of who I am. I hope you enjoy these photos and this long awaited post.
Now, in no particular order, 25 Things I’ve Learned:
I am grateful, but I do get discouraged. When I feel like a failure, these are 4 things I remind myself. I guess these reminders help affirm that life is not perfect and it’s okay.
No one is perfect: Yes, no one is perfect. I am not perfect. You are not perfect. Humans are not perfect. Someone will have different gifts and talents than you but that doesn’t make them perfect. You will have different gifts and talents than others too. And that’s completely okay. READ MORE
From that video, I found she released her new book Big Magic. I couldn’t get my hands on the book right away, so I went to her podcast and listened to her talk to people about their creativity and their life. I instantly felt an aura of enlightenment—everything (or a lot of things) Elizabeth talked about or advised to these people were the words I needed or the words I’ve been seeking to use (to explain my creative process/thinking to others).
Long and behold, after a few months of following the book launch and Gilbert on social media—I finally got my hands on the actual book.
Big Magic is a “self-help” book where Gilbert talks about creativity through stories and illustrations. However, it is not a step-by-step type of self-help book. It’s more conversational.
I flipped through the pages and I can hear Elizabeth simply talking to me—it’s that kind of self-help book. It’s not condemning you (as someone who creates). It’s about grasping the idea of inspiration and creativity.
One thing I love about the book is the illustrations of inspiration. The one I personally love is Ruth Stone’s story about how “…she would sometimes hear a poem coming toward her—hear it rushing across the landscape at her, like a galloping horse.” She goes on explaining how sometimes it’s more like pulling a tiger’s tail.

March marked our 4th year dating anniversary (My boyfriend and I). All of those years were long distance, always 1-3 states apart. I will confess that long distance is not easy, but no relationship is easy. Long distance is not for everyone, but it’s definitely worth it.
To some people, we may not have been together for that long, but to many we’ve been together for so long. Whichever way you may choose to look at our relationship, our relationship has definitely grown. We’re not perfect and our relationship is not perfect, but I want to share 3 things that I find important in our relationship.
