Hair masks and face masks are life changing. When you look good, you feel good. So take care of that pretty skin and lovely locks!!

4. Exercise.

Try to be active at least three times a week. It is scientifically proven that exercise releases endorphins which is your "feel-good" hormone!!

5. Treat yourself (with your favorite food)!

My go-to treat is Bluebell. There is nothing wrong with indulging every once in a while!

6. Treat yourself (materialistically)!

Buy that cute top you've been eyeing. Buy that purse you told yourself you didn't reallllly need. Get yourself some flowers. Sunflowers are my personal favorite!

7. A good mani pedi.

When I have a fresh set I feel like a whole new person. Try a new fun color or try getting dipped nails. It's the best thing ever.

8. Be kind to yourself.

Absolutely no negative talk. Look in the mirror and tell yourself you're beautiful. Focus on the things you like about yourself.

9. Surround yourself with good people.

Don't let people negatively effect you. You should be surrounded by people that love you and support your growth.

10. Chose. Yourself.


It's so easy to feel guilty for letting yourself be happy. But it's not a bad thing. You don't have to become selfish, but put yourself first sometimes.

11. Go out!

Get dressed up and go out with friends! Perhaps it is high-time to put on your best outfit and turn heads ;)

12. Take a vacation.

Sometimes you just need some time away. It doesn't have to be somewhere far away. Just take a little break from adulting and relax a little.

13. Self-help books galore.

I'm not much of a reader, but reading books about your current struggles really helps. Especially as a young woman, I really love "You're already Amazing" by Holly Gerth.

14. Pick up a new hobby!

Start crafting, decorate your house, or bake cupcakes for all your neighbors! Find something that makes you happy and run with it.

15. Get your beauty sleep.

My favorite activity is napping. Rest your mind and body. Beauty sleep is a thing. Rest and let that skin shine again!

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."

I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
