10 EYE OPENING DECISIONS TO MAKE FOR 2019 (& BEYOND)

I’ve always hated rollercoasters. That feeling of your stomach dropping from your throat to your feet just wasn’t for me. I assumed, as long as I stayed off them – I wouldn’t have to endure that awful traumatic feeling that left me crying for hours when I was about 8 years old. Little did I know – that feeling finds you even when you have both feet on the ground.

The past year has been one for the books. Life altering if you want to be utterly dramatic. Just 365 days ago, I thought my world was turned upside down and then thrown around for full effect. I saw no light at the end of my tunnel.

Looking back now, I was EMBARRASSINGLY hopeless. I was inconsolable. No matter what people said or did, I couldn’t snap out of the DESPAIR I blamed others for putting me into.

But here I am. 365 days later. I made it. I’m still standing & I have never felt more fearless in my life.

4 BOOKS THAT CHANGED MY LIFE (& YOU SHOULD READ THEM)

Reading is the ultimate form of escaping your own reality without actually running away from it.

Reading allows you to feel as though you’ve left your problems behind, when in actuality, the right book will do nothing more than reiterate the potential, strength, and beauty that you already have. Sometimes a really good book is just there to remind you of everything you already know but may need to hear someone else say.

The right book will be there to help you feel less alone in your own unconscious, your fears, and your dreams because you’ve established a connection with either a character, or the message itself.

THAT’S what a good book does.

I am an avid reader. Give me a cup of green tea or a great latte, a good book (I am SO not a fan of this whole e-reader generation), a quiet remote comfortable location, and you wont hear from me for hours. People have actually handed me books before just to shut me up and make me go away when I was being utterly annoying adorable.

Philosophies, Satires, Thrillers, Mysteries, Undeniable Love – I enjoy it all. Books are my way to escape reality for a few hours a day. They allow me the opportunity to run away from the dramas of life, from the responsibilities of the day, and just think about something else for a minute. They are my breathe of fresh air, my entertainment, and my education. They let me see the world, travel through time, and teach me new ways of being.

“Books are a uniquely portable magic.”

– Stephen King

There are so many books that I could sit down and discuss for hours. So many books that I would recommend to readers or any sort. But there are only a few books that I can open at anytime in life and find new meaning in based on what I have going on at that time.

There are only so many books that have taught me to think, feel and connect on new levels. The impact that these books have had on me not only continue to translate in my own emotional understanding of my life, but have enriched the way I interact with others and the relationships that this has allowed me to form.

So, what do these 4 books that changed my life all have in common?

Feeling Good Equals Looking Good. Knixwear Lingerie

Note: Funded Post

We’ve all been there. Its a hot summers day, we’re walking a lot, the air flowing up our skirts just isn’t doing it, or worse our jeans are just to warm. There are so many reasons for it, but there really just doesn’t seem to be away around it.

Sweating Vaginas is a thing. Its gross, its uncomfortable and nobody enjoys it.

Being a girl is hard enough with all of our social rules to follow. We are not only expected to feel good all the time, but to look good too.  It is however really hard to feel good about ourselves when we’re walking around feeling wet and sticky.

I used to be a huge fan of going out in the summer and soaking in as much sun as I possibly could. Walking around with my head up, my dresses flowing and a huge smile on my face. It was the most empowering feeling there was for me. I felt and looked good, it was like I was capable of anything in that moment.

The Pleasure In Comfort: Enjoy Leggings a Subscription Box

Note: Funded Post

Before I start, I would just like to point out that I am a HUGE fan of leggings. I disagree greatly with people who shame others for wearing them because I love them.

I think they are comfortable, and can be styled up with any outfit to go out or stay in. They are no longer just pants to be worn while working out or sitting on the couch- but something that you can now wear everyday if you feel like it.

So realistically when I came across the EnjoyLeggings Subscription Box I had to be a part of it! For only $16.95USD a month (or $49.95/ 3months) for a pair of leggings I figured it to be a steal.

Be Bold, Be Different, Be You. Impishlee Lingerie

Note: Funded Post

As a lover of lingerie it becomes a bit old when every piece you buy seems to just be the same as the last. As consumers we fall into a funk of buying the same old thing because it just seems to fit the right way and look great every time…

But aren’t you tired of spending money on the same lace panties, and same half moon cup in about 50 shades of rainbow? Because I sure am.

Walking into your local lingerie shop shouldn’t be boring. You shouldn’t be standing in line behind a group of woman all buying the same set.

Lingerie is supposed to be an extension of yourself. You wear it to feel beautiful, to be confident, and to be unique. We buy certain sizes and shapes to ecentuate our bodies for a reason, so why not have those pieces made specific for you too.

Be Bold, Be Different, Be You. 

My first time coming across Impish Lee was definitely a new experience. I was for the first time given the opportunity to not only design my own perfect set to express myself with, but the amazing girls behind the brand also made the whole shopping experience around me. Amazing sisters Kali and Noelle had originally put together a KickStarter to raise
money to form their amazing site, doing better than ever expected.
