Style Me Pretty

It has been a minute since my last stitch fix. I got one earlier in the summer but only ended up keeping one item, so it didn’t seem worth it to post. In my stitch fix profile I explained that I recently graduated college and am working towards transitioning my wardrobe to be more adult….

Stitch Fix, You’re my Fav

This post is a little late, but I am once more totally obsessed my May stitch fix. First things first this white shirt – I am totally obsessed with. I wore it for my birthday dinner outings. I love the lace detail down the front and the back and the little key hole is just…

Stitchfix Round 2

My second stitchfix came today! Yayy! It actually came a week later than it was expected because something happened with the original one they sent, so I want to take a second to brag about how awesome they’re customer service was – they caught the error, I didn’t even have to call and ask what…

Scars Make You Beautiful

For the year of 2017 so far I’ve been oddly in love with the song scars to your beautiful, it’s a pretty popular song, so you’ve likely heard, but in case not, here’s a link. These lines in particular strike me so powerfully: But there’s a hope that’s waiting for you in the dark You should…

I Feel Pretty 

In this transition to adult life I’ve spent some time evaluating my closet and realized it’s basically leggings, yoga pants, cheap t-shirts and some oversized sweatshirts and cardigans. Very collegey. And I realized I want my wardrobe to become a little more professional, a little more adult. But the thing is every time I go…

Mind Over Matter

Okay, so I’m a runner at heart. I’ve been running since I was in middle school… well, really I’ve been running since I was a kid. I would always run down my driveway when I got off the school bus. But I’ve been running as a sport/recreational activity/therapeutic activity for several years. So if you…

Goal Setting

So the other week I wrote a post about worshipping our bodies (read here). Which I stand by what I said – especially about being aware of what we’re posting on social media and how we’re posting it. It’s easy to use and abuse social media (guilty as charged), which is why it’s all the more…

Let’s Stop Worshipping our Bodies – Revised

We live in a culture obsessed with women’s bodies. It’s every where you look and because of this countless women struggle with their body image. It’s part of the reason why there are so many weight loss programs. There’s 21 day fix by beach body and there’s the kayla app thing and so many others…

How Running Improved Positive Self-talk

In our culture, as a woman, I think it’s easier to talk down about ourselves than it is to talk positively about ourselves, thus it’s easier to think negatively about ourselves than positively. One day last week I was in this kinda down hill spiral. I found myself thinking I was fat, worthless, feeling anxious,…

My Body is a Temple

I’ve been thinking about adding this as another topic I blog about, and I decided that it is a good thing and writing about it will probably be helpful. I’m not sure what it’ll look like or how often I’ll write about, but I am gonna roll with it for now… So — about a…
