I’m working on getting some fun posts up for you guys, but I’m still in the process of getting all the details in order. so, to tide me over until I can do that, I wanted to do something fun + simple – share my current favorites from instagram! it’s so hard to narrow it down to just a few instagram accounts, but I’ll likely do more of these posts because I love getting to share other bloggers or influencers that inspire me in my every day life. be sure to check out their accounts and show them some love + support!

my accutane journey: months 8 + 9

my accutane journey: months 8 + 9

it is so surreal that I am OFFICIALLY DONE WITH ACCUTANE!!!! overall, my journey has lasted about 12 months. I had my initial consult last november and started my preliminary lab tests. as far as the medication part, I ended up being on it a little longer than normal, just because we weren’t seeing the progress we were hoping to by month 6, but if it’s what kept me from having to go through the process all over again, then I’m not complaining. truthfully, I would have been done a lot sooner but I was so bad about missing a random day here or there that it delayed my end date. oops, but oh well.

a quick way to deal with anger

a quick way to deal with anger

dealing with anger and hurt can be hard. there’s a time and place for these emotions, but the thing I’ve come to notice about them is that they take a very egocentric point of view when we allow it to take control for too long, and it can create an environment where those feelings can fester.

perfectly binge-worthy shows to watch this fall

perfectly binge-worthy shows to watch this fall

fall + winter are the perfect times to binge watch tv shows! cozying up in bed – whether it be with your dog, significant other, bestie, or by yourself with a hot cup of tea and popcorn – is ten times more fun during this time of year when the air is chilly and you can comfortably wrap yourself in layers of blankets. so light your autumn candles and start bingeing, whether it’s your first time watching or your 3rd!
