twenty eight.


I have officially entered into my 28th year of existence. I sit here feeling very thankful for another year. I also sit here wondering what lessons I have learned in the past year. I have learned that I can make it on my own but I also need to lean on other people sometimes. I already know who I can lean on and count on, but I need to remember that it is okay to depend on them. I think I have learned more about self-love and the things I need to feel centered. Weekly bubble baths are a must. Reading for pure pleasure delights me. Feeding my body with the most nutritious foods is important. Exercise is essential. Feeding your mind, body, and soul is a requirement in my life.

I think what I have ultimately learned is that taking care of yourself is truly important. I am ever-evolving into my truest self. It may seem like I haven’t learned many things, but perhaps the lessons are 100% less apparent to me. But I know every year we get wiser and perhaps the lessons are less, but still important. My late 20s are the lead-in to my 30s. They are the bridge that carries you out of the messy 20s and into the confident 30s. I have but two years left of my 20s and I am ready for new lessons on this journey we call life.



welcome to the dark side.


If you missed it, I dyed my hair a bit dark last month. I have entered into a new life, a new version of myself, if you will. I have always thought a new hair shade and/or cut made me feel like a new version of myself. Silly, perhaps. But I lived different lives in each shade. I have evolved with my hair. I wonder what I shall discover on the dark side.



battle born.

as a vegas native, las vegas has been my heart and soul from the beginning.
this city raised me and helped shape me today.
the community in las vegas is actually very small.
everyone knows someone.
everyone knew at least one person there last night.
it is such a terrifying experience to panic and try to figure out if your friends and loved ones are alright.
it was such a terrifying experience for those who did in fact experience the terror.
i will never be able to fathom the things seen and heard last night.
where do we go from here, folks?
i don’t give a fuck what side of the political fence you’re on because i am on the side of human beings.
strip away the politics, the ideologies, the differences, because we are more alike than we are different.
the victims deserve so much more than our political agendas.
although i no longer reside in las vegas, a small piece of my heart still lives there and today it is broken.


life updates.

Bonjour. Thought I would give all of you a brief update(s) on some things in my life.

First off, I have being going strong with following the Tone It Up program. If you’re not familiar with TIU, check out their website here. TIU is basically two ladies who have built a health and fitness empire. They have a nutrition plan, premium workouts, gear, daily workouts on their website, and a bunch of free workouts on their Youtube channel. I am nearing the end of week 16 on this journey of mine. I have seen some results for sure, but I still have a long way to go. All of the exercise has been making me feel really good and happy (endorphins). My eating habits have definitely changed for the better and I allow myself a lovely cheat meal on Sundays. So definitely something to look forward to every week. I am excited to see where this takes me and surely I am excited to see more results! Oh, and they are on tour right now and I am going to the Seattle leg of the tour on 9/13!! It is basically a fitness festival. All the information is on their website if you want to go too.

Secondly, I am going to try my hand at Youtube. I may not be any good at it, but I want to try it. I’m not entirely sure of my intended content but there will definitely be vlogs on my travels. I am still coming up with video ideas by trial and error. The first video will probably be a vlog of my 24 hour LA trip this weekend. Hopefully it turns out good and is at least mildly interesting. I will definitely let you all know when it is up! If anyone has an videos they would be interested in seeing, let me know!

I think that’s it for now.
