Why You Should Never Settle

The concept of settling is one I've only recently explored. I recently sat with a friend who felt like she was in the same boat in her relationship. I see it everywhere now. People in relationships are not unhappy, but they're not happy either.  So why do people settle? This question was prompted by my … Continue reading Why You Should Never Settle

Post-College Depression & How To Deal

How to put the weight of these feelings into words was the hardest challenge, but I feel like it's not talked about enough. When you graduate, everyone tells you that there are so many open doors. Technically, with a degree there are many and everyone makes you feel like the world is your oyster. The … Continue reading Post-College Depression & How To Deal

5 Thoughts on Graduating

I've been dealt a pretty crazy hand of cards during the last four years, but I have no doubt I played the hell out of them.

3 Things I’ve learned from my Mother(s)

Juice Cleanse with Pressed Juicery

I'm not big on juice cleansing only because of my endless love for food. HOWEVER, when my body needs it, it needs it (i.e. 2 times a year) What I love about juice cleansing that sets it apart from what others deem as "healthier alternatives", is that it really makes my body absolutely feel refreshed … Continue reading Juice Cleanse with Pressed Juicery

Being The Bigger Person

Despite all the pettiness our deranged hormones make us feel, there's one thing I've learned from being petty: It doesn't do a thing for you, OBVI. You know that fashion statement, "Less is More"? Well apply that to communicating in a frustrating situation coupled with a temporary furious emotional state. SAY LESS. DON'T SEND THAT … Continue reading Being The Bigger Person

Friends in Toxic Relationships and How to Deal

I've been waiting so long to finally post this, but I just feel this piece was so necessary to write. Having that ONE friend who's in a toxic relationship or who's been in one for forever is not just common, it's an EPIDEMIC.
