no timeline to happiness, no blueprint to success.

I was scrolling aimlessly on Pinterest earlier this week looking for new blog & content ideas, cute quotes, anything that might just give me a little bit of inspiration because even though its a new year & thats usually when our motivation is at all time high, it is undeniably still covid time, & our…

numbers are just that… numbers

For as long as I can remember, I allowed numbers to take full control of my life. The numbers staring back at me on the scale; always too high, or too low. The numbers on my diabetic meter; showing inconsistency & unhealthy habits. The number of dollars in my bank account; was there enough to…

i am not a brand

“Build your brand” is something that I find myself hearing over, & over, & over lately. Everyone is trying to “build their brand” & everyone is telling you to build yours. Essentially, they are telling you to become something, create this product, (i.e. the product being your “persona”), stick to it, & promote it. I…

get to know me

Since I decided that I’m going to start writing & posting more here I wanted to do a get to know me & answer some questions that people might have. The other day I put a story on my Instagram & told people to ask away. Here are some of the questions they asked &…

please just be kind

Who am I? Who do I want to be? What impact do I want have on others? I’ve spent a lot of time alone recently, isolating myself to gain more clarity on these things. I’ve sat back and observed. Observed the world around me as well as the people around me. The more I watched…

dear heartbreak, I used to hate you, but now, I love you.

Once upon a time I was 17 & in love. (HA!!! yeah, you can laugh it’s funny). I was 17 & thought I was going to marry my boyfriend at the time. How cute, right? At 17 we don’t know anything about the world, we technically still belong to our parents, we can’t even make…

if you’d just let me explain..

Before you find yourself too deep into this blog let me explain why I am here. The last few months I’ve been on this honesty kick. By that I mean I have put a mega focus on being honest, in every situation, even when it’s hard, even when I don’t want to. With my friends,…

My new favorite, failure.

So I have this thing for quotes, I always have. They’re short, sweet, &  straight to the point. Most of the time they’re incredibly motivating too. A couple of months ago, I came across this quote about failure. It read “Failure isn’t necessarily a terrible thing. Getting upset, allowing it to fuel your passion and…

Happy (belated) New Year

I thought that 2018 was my year. My modeling took off in the right direction, I went on vacations with my family, I experienced new things, and places. I did well in school and I loved my summer job. My diabetes was the most under control it has ever been in the last 9 years…

Inner Demons

The Backstory December of last year I was lucky enough to sign a contract with Ford Models Chicago, it happened in a fairly odd, somewhat surreal way. I knew I had an interest in modeling, ever since I’ve been little. So, in November I decided to take some photos of myself & send them to…
