I’m sure you’ve heard of the “Law of Attraction” at some point, because everyone seems to be writing about it recently, but for good reason: it works (if you do, that is).

But what exactly is the Law of Attraction?

I talk a little bit about the idea behind it here, but essentially by focusing on the positive or negative thoughts a person is having, they can manifest into real life experiences. Basically: your thoughts become your reality. If you’re repeating something to yourself, that phrase will create imagery in your mind, which will affect you subconsciously, in turn influencing your behavior, then actions, and overall habits. Like energy attracts like energy.

Although I was already utilizing affirmations in my daily life, it’s only recently that I’ve fully started to employ the Law of Attraction. It’s kind of amazing when you approach life with a positive mindset, just how much starts to align (and in a short time)!

A lot of the healthy, non-food related recipes I share on my blog are born out of necessity, whether I need to clear up my skin or fix my energy levels; this recipe is no different! I accidentally let myself run out of toothpaste recently, and instead of subjecting everyone to my morning breath, I decided to try out something I’ve seen pop up on pinterest a few times: make my own toothpaste!!

Surprisingly, I’m in love with it. I will admit, it’s more of a tooth “powder” than paste, but I don’t think my mouth has ever felt cleaner after brushing. Plus, it’s kind of fun brushing with charcoal and seeing your mouth get black, then end up super clean!

I’ve noticed lately that a lot of people seem to be struggling with feeling burnt out in their day to day life. In a society that takes a bit of twisted pride in never calling out of work it’s frankly not surprising that people are getting to this point.

While I get that being overworked is partially a financial decision for many (and therefore largely a necessity), social media is definitely a huge contributor as well. The first thing we do when waking, and the last thing we do before sleeping, is scroll through our phones to observe others. This is creating a subconscious tally board against carefully curated highlight reels of all the things we aren’t accomplishing, even though we’re striving for something that isn’t obtainable because it’s not real.

While it’s definitely easier to have someone else help you take blog photos, sometimes that isn’t an option! Maybe you’ve got an idea you’re just bursting to photograph immediately, or a sponsored post you’ve gotta get up, and no help in sight; don’t fret!

I’ve started dabbling in taking my photos myself recently (and people can’t even tell!), because I like being able to drop everything and get to business on my own timeline. I figured I might as well share my top tips with y’all, so you guys can get out there and start making magic all by yourself!

My go to overnight oats recipe. Simple, yet delicious, and ready for you when you're running out the door in the morning! Click through to read >>

My go to overnight oats recipe. Simple, yet delicious.

I’ve been obsessed with making this overnight oats recipe for a minute now, and kind of surprised I never shared the recipe with y’all. It’s super simple, and I love that I can put everything together in two minutes before heading to bed, and have something ready for me first thing in the morning! I’d love to pretend I’m one of those people that gets up and makes myself breakfast every day, but let’s be real: I’ll snooze until the last possible second, and then sleep more.

I bet so many of you are the same, so this is definitely a recipe worth knowing how to make! Overnight oats are fairly versatile in that you can add or remove pretty much whatever you want, spare the oats and your choice of milk. View Post

Learn from the lobster and cast off that shell (and your limitations) to free yourself up to change.

It’s no big secret that people don’t like change. In fact, I’m pretty sure we can all be in agreement that change is uncomfortable, very much in the way that a pair of overly shrunken jeans are uncomfortable, and we’d rather torture ourselves with something feeling not quite right than make an adjustment.

Taking a look at my 28th birthday.

Yikes! They weren’t kidding about hangovers getting worse after you hit 25. I had hoped to have this post out a little closer to my actual birthday, but recovering from my birthday party (my boyfriend surprised me with karaoke!) took forever. Seriously, if any of y’all have tried and true hangover tricks, defffinitely leave them in the comments below. In case you’re scratching your head, yes I’ve started drinking again since this post. I felt that I got what I needed from my 6 month sober stint, though I wouldn’t object to taking a break again in the future! Everything in moderation.

Sucking at partying aside, this year has really shown me a lot of growth. View Post

writer's block

Hey babes! I’ve seen a lot of people really struggling to find their voice and just write lately (myself included) so I decided to put together my favorite tips on how I deal with “writer’s block”.  I actually employed almost every method I’ve shared here while writing out this post, so I can say with certainty that they work!

These tips are directed toward writing blog posts, but I think they can really apply in almost any situation that you find yourself needing to write. Obviously, I’m just biased about what I’m working on.
