Pause.

August 11, 2016

Lately I’ve been feeling like I owe others and myself more authenticity.  This summer has been an overwhelming rollercoaster of ups and really intense downs. I haven’t sat down to write or even visited my blog since my latest surgery 4 weeks ago. Publishing anything over the past few weeks would’ve only been because I felt like I had to post new content – and that’s not what I want this space to reflect.

So I’m pausing and re evaluating.

God has been placing the word season really heavily on my heart lately. Reminding me that this is a season of my life that will pass.

A season of 4 surgeries in 365 days. A season of physical pain. A season of friends leaving and disappearing when things get hard. A season of having to live back at home instead of continuing at school. A season of my life completely crashing into millions of pieces, while I can only wait for the debris to clear. Read more…

Happy July!! Hope you’re having an amazing summer so far! June was crazy for me so I’m loving the fresh start of a new month.

Other than lounging around a bunch this month, I took a vacation to Clearwater Beach, and I’ve really been getting back into playing guitar and photography. So the songs below have kind of been my personal “soundtrack” of the past 30 days! Read more…

Heat Proof Summer Makeup Title Image

Here in Atlanta, summer comes with a brutal and pretty relentless heat wave.  When I wear makeup (aka when I’m not spending the entire day inside lounging around) I like for it to look as natural as possible and feel fresh – not cakey! Most importantly I don’t want it to melt off my face! Here are the products I’m using this summer and a few tips to make your makeup sweat and heat proof! Read more…

9 Ways To Boost Your Happiness Today

 Happiness Boost Title Image

 

We’ve all those mornings, days, or even weeks where we’re just completely in a rut and can’t shake the feeling of sadness or anger. You know what I mean right? When you wake up and just feel anything other than happy.

Here’s a pick me up – just for you.

 

01.

First off, be grateful and happy that you are alive. Our lives are so valuable and short and I feel like we take them and the lives of others for granted. A few months ago 4 girls lost their lives in a car accident near their college here in Georgia. I didn’t personally know these girls, but this tragedy shook several communities and families and could have happened to anyone. It’s really made me think twice about the value of life and how we choose to spend our time and energy. Every single moment we should be grateful for the day ahead and the true opportunity we have to live. Read more…

Dear High School Graduates

Dear High School Graduates, (1)

This weekend I stood with my family outside of an arena in a sea of 18 year olds wearing the same royal blue gown and surrounded by teary eyed parents and shouts of “Smile!” and “Congrats!”. My younger brother graduated high school this weekend and while I wish he would stop growing up, I’m SO incredibly proud of him. We attended the same high school (and now we’re going to the same college!!!) so going to his graduation ceremony completely took me back to my graduation two years ago. Read more…

Hey guys! For some of you finals week is FINALLY over and your break has officially begun! I love this “pre-summer” time of year – it’s not ridiculously hot yet, it’s the perfect time to start making plans for the next few months off, and artists usually start releasing what’ll go down as “the hits of the summer”.
