cocktail recipe: bloody maria/mary (tequila/vodka)
Are you against bloody marys and bloody marias because you think they’re gross? Maybe you’re thinking, “It’s like drinking tomato soup!” My friend, I was once in your shoes…

It’s been over a year since I posted a life update. Many events took place between now and then. I wrote this post to share what I have learned interim.

Recently I’ve been enjoying some books, and I wanted to share them with y’all! I have compiled a list of titles and my own little tidbits. Enjoy. 🙂
august mood boosters
I’ve compiled a list of some mood boosters to spark inspiration for y’all!
professional feature: camille mola, positive publicity
The best PR practitioners are flexible, curious, and bold individuals. Professional Camille Mola fits these adjectives flawlessly!
the art of self-dates
Modern culture places such heavy emphasis on romantic love. As if finding the perfect partner fills inner voids, solves all problems, and completes the ideal life!
it is okay to not be okay
Yo, what’s up guys!? It’s been a minute.
life update: april 2020
For many of us, the structures of our lives have been taken away. However, despite the impact of outside circumstances you are in control of your life.
been there, done that
Hey guys! The world is in a weird place right now to say least. Who would have thought in 2020 humans would be encouraged to stay indoors while penguins at the aquarium are roaming freely!
I like doing things alone better.
Hey guys. I’ve gotten quite a few messages on Instagram asking about my everyday makeup routine. Well, ask and you shall receive!
one for me
A day can make a whole world of difference in life. Imagine a day something incredibly impactful happened to you. Those few seconds of processing the information made a difference.
This blog has all your need to know for ULTIMATE (caffeinated) fall vibes, hehe. When it comes to coffee some love it, others hate it. I’m one of the coffee-loving fanatics.

One of my goals entering the new year is to read a new book every month. I set aside time to read. This is a way I prioritize myself.
01.2020 fashion favorites
Hey guys! At the start of the month, I picked up new winter fashion pieces! I also received some stuff over the holidays. Thank you to everyone. I love you all. 🙂 Needless to say, this month I have had a fun time trying out all sorts of new (to me) products!

Hey guys! January has been the longest month ever. We’re in a new year, new things are happening, moves are being made — all that good stuff!
what’s good, my people?
Hey guys! January has been the longest month ever. We’re in a new year, new things are happening, moves are being made — all that good stuff! This week I wanted to update y’all on what’s happening in my life because I’m sure you’re all dying to know.
morning routine: winter 2020
There are a lot of things I set out to do in a day. That is because I know prioritizing my time properly will benefit me in infinite ways. In the past (and even sometime now) I spent many, many days running around (both literally and figuratively) like a crazy person. Yet at the end…
regression is easier than progression
Welcome to 2020 people! I hope you all had an amazing time ringing in the new year. I spent mine, very lavishly, chowing down on house lo mein from my favorite Chinese restaurant, while snuggled up in bed. The life of a 21-year old gal living in the city!
entering the closing of a decade
I was debating closing the year with a summary of what I learned in 2019. Then I started writing it out for the first six months of the year, and already had a seven-page document… Rather, in the spirit of moving forward and continuing along the path of personal growth, I am going to mention…
finding the silver lining
Call me a hopeless romantic — or a person who took control of their life — but I love finding silver linings. Having the ability to accept that certain situations in life are outside of your control is the key to inner peace and true happiness. Or so I’ve found. My worldview used to be…
are you an imposter?
The topic of imposter syndrome has been incredibly relevant in my life within the past few weeks. Not saying my feelings are unique, but I had no idea a name for this feeling existed and was shared by so many people! In short — imposter syndrome refers to one not believing they are as capable,…
focus on the now
The goal here is for the balloon… (you)… to float… (relax). And while this works for me, this may not work for you.
With the change of the seasons, the sun setting in the early afternoon, and obligatory family time creeping up, it becomes easier to fall into less productive habits and mindsets. Succumbing to these obstructive behaviors may feel more comfortable in the moment, but they are digressions along the path. These may be easier choices, but…
6 places to get sh*t done in Philly
I am a busy gal who wears many hats. I mean that figuratively — hats are not my accessory of choice. In all seriousness, I am almost always working on (or procrastinating working on) something. Whether it be assignments for class, content creation, freelance projects or general administrative labors of living, like scheduling dentist appointments.…
three tips for starting a new chapter in life
You are the author of your own life, whether you accept it or not. Independent writers, such as yourself, have the creative freedom to create whatever they want to play out in their pieces. One of the many attractive qualities of writing are the various styles and types — a single text may include more…
monthly favorites: october 2019
Hi guys! I am going to be the hundredth person to say this but I cannot believe 2019 is coming to an end. October went by ~scary~ fast. (ba dum tss) Come on, I had to!!
white out weekend ’19
Each October spectators from far and wide gather at State College, Pennsylvania, for the spectacle which is Penn State’s “White Out” football game. Hordes of people of all ages wander across Downtown, making their way towards Beaver Stadium. Most groups carrying their choice case of beer or malt drink to enjoy at whichever tailgate they…
“…and then you die”
Death is a fact of life which we cannot escape, yet it remains such a taboo subject when it involves us personally. Why? Because humans are naturally conditioned to be averted to things they are not able to fully understand.
to my past self
“Remember how far you’ve come. Write a eulogy for your past self.”
eulogy for my past self
I would like to begin this post by disclaiming I am not at all an astrological die-hard. Prior to this year, my extent of interest in horoscopes was reading mine if I happen to be flipping through a magazine.
life lessons: early 20s
I am 21 years, 2 months and 28 days old. What makes me in the slightest bit qualified to give advice on living your early 20s when I’ve barely experienced them?!
conquering overwhelming feelings
My life, just like everyone else’s, is complicated. If you were to ask anyone who personally knows me they would describe my life as “hectic” or “chaotic” — no doubt in my mind!

life update: july 2019
It is no exaggeration to say your 20’s are a period of incredible growth and development. People change and grow apart as they gain new insight to the world — it is natural. Similarly to other young adults, I have experienced situations which have altered my perception of reality and I am now observing the…
becoming your best self
I have grown a lot in 2019. I continue to grow into my best self.
