I always thought of myself as a grateful person. After all I’ve been reading about gratitude since I was 16 in books like The Secret, The Four Agreements, A Return to Love, A New Earth, The Last Lecture, Excuses Begone, the list goes on.
But as it turns out, what I thought was practicing gratitude wasn’t actually the case. Continue Reading
It’s come to my attention the obsessive apology-driven world we live in. Maybe it’s just me, but I really feel like we all apologize far too much, like way too much, especially if you’re a woman.
I was walking the other day and I ran into this woman and she goes “Oh, I’m so sorry!” and I thought, ‘What? You’re sorry? I ran into you lady!’
So this is my PSA to all the other ladies out there STOP SAYING YOU’RE SORRY! Continue Reading
The other day I was talking to my smart, funny, charming, sweet, caring boyfriend Patricio and I was basically complaining about not having enough time to do things. Considering I preach just the opposite (you DO in fact have time to do things, you just choose not to do them), it goes to show we all have our off days. Anyway, I was saying how I’d love to learn graphic design, web design, and video editing sounds easy for some but I found it’s pretty time consuming and to do what I want to do would take years.

I feel like I’m a pretty straight forward shopper. I see something I like, I pick my size, and it usually fits like a glove. But not when it comes to bathing suits and jeans – they’re pretty much my worst nightmare. Please tell me I’m not alone? Continue Reading
Do you believe it? Me, Miss Zig Zag theory telling you to copy someone else?! Well, believe it!
Before I started blogging, I mean like really blogging, understanding how it all worked I thought to copy other people was basically plagiarism. I thought it was totally low class and completely fraudulent to do such a thing… until now. Continue Reading
Before we talk about these lovely leading ladies, I want to make one thing clear. I know a lot of the bloggers out there, but there are also a lot I don’t know. So this post is based solely on the bloggers I know and have interacted with personally. And I’d love to hear about your favorite bloggers in the comments below so definitely let me know so I can check them out! Continue Reading
It’s no surprise by now that I give away a lot of blog tips for free. Why? Because I want to. I have the mentality that the more you give the more you get so that’s what I’m going by. Continue Reading
Before I moved to New York I made a vision board. I was living at my boyfriend’s mom’s house, sitting on the floor, using our bed as a table, (which was also on the floor), to make a vision board. Continue Reading
So I recently took a break from social media over the 4th of July. It wasn’t intentional, it just sort of happened. I was rushing around to head to South Jersey and then before you know it I’m on the beach with no content planned. I forgot my charger and Patricio needed his charger at night so I had to charge my phone during the day which meant no Snapchat or Instagram. Continue Reading
A little over a year ago I lost one of the closest people to me: my Pop-pop. And it has taken me almost two years to publicly acknowledge his passing. Continue Reading
