    Fall – The Best Time for Reflection & Self-Discovery

    Today’s post is quite a bit longer, in more of a reflective diary format, than my usual posts. Sitting in front of our fire place, with an apple cider candle lit and one of my favorite Spotify playlists, “Afternoon Acoustic”, playing, I can’t help but feel all reflective and nostalgic. I have now lived in East Tennessee for over two years and it really is starting to feel like home. Life is sooo different than life in Seattle. At first, all I wanted to do was move home and kept trying to plan with Chris when we would make the move back. It was the strangest thing, but…

    The Hardest Breakup I’ve Ever Had

    I always want to be 100% transparent with you all and while the majority of my blog and social media channels portray positivity and happiness, that isn’t always the case. Like everyone else, I go through dark times and deeply struggle with various things in my personal life. While the majority of my days I am smiling ear to ear and consumed with happiness, I break down and cry some days, and others I feel lonely and sad. And I think those struggles, like the one I am about to share with you all, need to be talked about more…

    Beauty Habits I Live By

    Hi everyone! I hope you all had a relaxing weekend. It has been raining non-stop here in Knoxville for the past 5 days or so and the forecast isn’t looking much better. I have never seen it rain this long before! I feel like I’m back in Seattle. But, because of all this rain I have been using it as an excuse to stay at home, get some work done, give my skin a break by going make-up free (this would explain why I’ve been a little MIA), and getting a little beauty pampering in! I was supposed to have a shoot this weekend to show you all a super cute outfit I put together but that got rescheduled due to the weather so instead of that planned post I want to share with you all some beauty habits…
