New Adventure


I am a firm believer in fate, I believe that everything happens for a reason. If life is just a series of unplanned events, then I have no clue what I'm doing. So far 2016 has been a year of growth. 

I spent the very beginning of this year regrouping from a series of events that really put me through the ringer. It seemed as if nothing was going right for me. For a while, I felt as if I was afloat in the sea with no way of knowing where I was going. I knew that while I was unsure of my place in the scheme of things, that I had to keep pushing on. Nothing would come from sitting and marinating in my woes. I'm so young, I've got my whole life ahead of me. Not to be cliche but hey it's true.

I focused my energy on the things I always used to - school, work and my friends. Well, it seems that this energy was well spent. I will be beginning my new adventure as the Assistant Store Manager of Free People Chestnut Hill and I couldn't be happier! 

For those of you who might be going through a rough time just remember that you may be less sure of your place in the scheme of things, but out of this period of not knowing, a higher truth can emerge.

I promise.

Staycation


(Design Lab jacket, Free People bodysuit and flares, and ASOS belt)

Last year, I did your typical spring break. I spent my week off from school sunning myself on the beaches of St. John. It was an amazing and relaxing experience and I returned with a nice tan, ready to take on the rest of my semester. 

This year went a little differently. 

I spent this spring break at work. While I was a little bummed to not be sitting out by the pool on my last break of college, I was happy to be able to spend some time regrouping from the last 6 weeks school.

Like most people, I find running a million miles a minute (mentally) pretty draining. We all require some time to reset our minds and bodies. I chose to do this through doing yoga daily. Just having this 60 minutes of time to set an intention for myself and breath through my challenges.

So you might not be traveling this spring break. There are a number of things you can do instead. Spend some of your free time reading that book you've been meaning to finish, go explore a new area of your city or just catch up with friends who are staying in town too!

Beacon Hill Hangs


I had an awesome time shooting with some of my ladies at Free People Boston. We spent a Sunday afternoon wandering the sunny streets of Beacon Hill. The weather was gorgeous and got us all very excited for the warm days ahead.

Lush Life


If there is one thing that calms me down (other than yoga) it's a long soak with a bath bomb from Lush. After a long snowy Monday, I was pretty thankful to be able unwind in a bath full of tropical blue water.

Love Your Body


With Valentine's Day right around the corner and being newly single, you'd think I would be a hot mess of insecurity. On the contrary, I feel pretty empowered. So I felt inspired to share what I've discovered recently.

Looking back, I was always a little insecure. I sprouted boobs and hips earlier than most in my class and my hair was curly and frizzy and absolutely refused to be tamed. Today I embrace those qualities I once despised. I have come to accept these qualities; even love them. This is what has truly made me happy.

I think about all the women out there, young and aging, who are insecure and uncomfortable with themselves. I'm dedicating this post to any woman who has ever been made to feel anything but beautiful by society. 

You are beautiful, ladies, you just can't see it yet.

Some of you might find this post a bit out of character or inappropriate, but to that I will say, "Hey, it's all for the kids, I'm trying to make a statement."
