Don’t Wish Your Life Away

Each year that the fall semester of college begins, I feel older and older.  I still live in the city where I went to college because K is still studying and I just love this city. It’s absolutely wonderful and is just full of life and culture. Continue reading


How to Care for Long Hair

One thing I have been doing for years is washing my hair everyday.  My parents always taught me the importance of good hygiene and of course made me take showers daily. Daily showering is definitely important, but during my worst periods of anxiety, I would shower twice daily and wash my hair every time I showered.  It’s funny that I couldn’t figure out why my hair was so brittle and dull.

24 Hours of Being Gluten-Free

I am so glad that I broke down a month and a half ago and signed up for a gym membership at Planet Fitness. That place really is all that it claims to be. I feel so comfortable working out there and have noticed a significant difference in my appearance and self-esteem. My posture is getting so much better! I just needed some actual muscles in my upper back and boom, it’s better.   Continue reading

I Have a Temper

Before I get into this post, I wanted to let you all know that I was very honored to be interviewed by Out of the Darkness. This article is so well-written and I’m humbled to have been asked to participate.  Check out my feature here.

I was still feeling a lot of pain from when I had my wisdom teeth extracted, but that was almost a month ago, so I thought it was a bit strange. I called the oral surgeon and they fit me in yesterday afternoon. Continue reading

I Love Early Mornings

I finally broke down and got a gym membership. Continue reading

My Health and Beauty A to Z

This morning, Chester visited his vet. He had to get his yearly vaccinations and check-up to make sure he’s doing well and is all healthy. He especially hated the anal thermometer, which is understandable.  He only ever mildly protests with a gentle mew. Continue reading

If You Can’t Laugh At Yourself…

I’m spending the day at home with my cuddle bug 🙂 I was so happy to be finally getting into shape and working out. I still am proud of myself for not giving up after two weeks.  I’ve been eating healthy and making an effort to get exercise in my routine daily. I feel really good! I should say, I felt really good. Continue reading

Infusing Water, Baby Things, and Positive Vibes

Oh my goodness. Chester was super cuddly when I came home today and wanted nothing more than to just rub his scent all over my arms and legs. I happened to get a picture of him licking my arm! I love that you can see his tongue in this picture 😀 Continue reading

I Am Loving Blogilates!

Working out is always funner with a cat.

For the past couple of years, I have been laaaaazy. I mean, I come home and sit on the couch all night kind of lazy.  In college, I would walk at least 2 miles a day, so at least I was getting some form of exercise.  I very occasionally go to the gym with K, but I don’t have a membership and $6 a time adds up.
