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…

The Evolution of Blogging: I Wish It Was Personal Again

 When I think back to the magical world of blogging I first uncovered years ago, it seems like a completely different medium than what it is today. It felt like every post was a hidden gem – the blogosphere was untouched, unsaturated, and always hiding something new, waiting to be discovered. To be honest, I really miss when it was that way. It was deep and insightful, innocent and pure, cultivating connections and inspiring self-reflection. As time has passed, though, I personally feel like it has lost a bit of that magic. Growing up, I loved to read. I was…

How Relationships Can Help You Find Food & Body Freedom

I think most people, if not everyone, struggles with poor body image at some point. Feeling self-conscious, alone, and trapped, whether that be just for a moment or for a long period of time.

Eating disorders like anorexia, bulimia, and orthorexia are all on the rise. But even if someone doesn’t have an “official” eating disorder, it seems like almost everyone struggles with some version of disordered eating. That might be undereating,…

What Is Intuitive Eating, and Can We All Really Do It?

The term intuitive eating has been popping up a lot recently in the health and wellness space. People are proud to say that they are intuitive eaters, and they often use intuitive eating as a way to explain the way they make their food choices on a daily basis. The thing is, though, I think a lot of us have very different ideas about what intuitive eating truly means. I feel like there is an unspoken pressure to “eat intuitively.” So much pressure, in fact, that it almost seems impossible to really do if you’re that focused on doing it! Unfortunately, I…

When Sugar Detoxes Lead to Health Shaming

This week is Mind Body Green‘s No Sugar Week, and it has caused a lot of controversy on Instagram. I’ve been biting my tongue all week, but that didn’t last long. I really want to share my thoughts on the topic because I have been genuinely confused and frustrated because of people’s reactions. When I first heard about MBG’s No Sugar Week, I really didn’t think twice about it. People go on sugar detoxes all the time! Whole 30s are huge. Mark Hyman’s 10 day sugar detox is huge. Diane Sanfilippo’s 21 day sugar detox is huge. There are so many sugar detoxes…
