fashion & wellness blog

Welcome to my blog!

January 6, 2021

Hey babes! Happy New Year! I cannot believe we all got through 2020 – what a relief. While things are not yet back to normal and the world has a lot of healing to do, I figured I could try and contribute something positive and up-lifting. This blog is going to be dedicated to all things beauty, fashion, health, and wellness. Anything that I am passionate about and find comfort in, I want to include here and hopefully provide those things for you as well! The content will be varied, but my mission will remain the same – to make the world brighter one recipe, makeup review, or self-help tip at a time!

Currently, I’m a junior in college working on my third degree. Yes, you read that right. Three strikes and you’re out, so I’m trying to make this last degree count! I’m a beauty and wellness obsessed, almost 27-year-old, 3rd time junior in college trying to trudge my way through a didactic program in dietetics in hopes to become a registered dietitian. When I’m not crying over metabolic pathways that I can barely understand, I turn to the tools in my tool belt that my first two degrees equipped me with to get me through. My first degree is a Bachelor of Science in psychology and cognitive sciences, and my graduate degree is a Master of Science in kinesiology (Sport and Exercise Science). Sometimes my posts will be influenced by things I’ve picked up from my education, and sometimes they will be completely light-hearted reviews on the newest lip-gloss that’s piqued my interest, as I am a self-proclaimed beauty junkie.

I want to thank you all for taking the time to read my blog, watch my videos, and interact with me as we dive deep into this whole blog thing! I can’t wait to see where we will all be a year from now, and how much fun (hopefully) we will have along the way!

Stay tuned for more to come!
