The Importance of Self-Care & My Favorite Ways to Show Myself Love

It seems only fitting to follow up my post about the glorification of being busy with a post all about self-care. Do you see a theme here? I think many of us would be much better off if we took more time to slow down and show ourselves some love. I truly believe that self-care is incredibly important. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is. It took me a long time to really swallow this truth – if you don’t take care of yourself first, there is no way you can fully be there for others. Without filling up your own…

The Glorification of Being Busy

I want you to know that it’s okay if you’re not always busy. If I’m being completely honest with you, my ultimate goal in life is to not be busy. I want a “simple life.” One where I don’t feel like I’m always bouncing from task to task, place to place, person to person, cramming as much as I can into each and every day. I want to work as little as I can for maximum output in order to have as much free time as possible. That’s the end goal. Free time means more time to do exactly what fuels my…

My Packing Routine, Road Trip Hacks, & Trips to the Cabin

This week LITERALLY flew by in the blink of an eye – did that happen for anyone else? Since it was Labor Day on Monday, I went up to my family’s cabin last weekend to get a little vacay in.

I left at the end of last week and ended up coming home midweek for the opening of Primal Kitchen in Culver City. I’m not really an “event” kind of…

Quitting My Full-Time Job, Slowing Down, & Being a 22-Year-Old Entrepreneur

This post is long overdue. I’ve wanted to write this since the moment I quit my full-time job, but the timing just never felt right. The other day, though, I felt like it was finally time. Part of me was putting it off because I don’t know what else to say other than, “I quit my job and am now officially working for myself full-time.” The other part of me was putting it off because I knew there actually was so much to say surrounding it – so much that I didn’t know where to begin. I worked as the full-time personal assistant/Director…

San Diego Recap & What My Ideal Vacation Really Is

I feel like most people write vacation recap posts literally the day after they return because they’re SO excited to share everything, but I’m slow. My brain needs time to process. Also, I honestly just didn’t know if I should bother posting it or not. Will anyone even read it? Like I talked about in my blog a few weeks ago, it seems like people don’t really pay attention to diary-style posts anymore. Then I realized – I truly do not care. I love both reading and writing these kinds of posts, so I’M GOING TO POST THEM. Now that…
