As we are in the midst of wrapping up another year, I am taking a moment to reflect on the past year and the whirlwind of change and emotions it has left me with. I think it’s safe to say, that 2016 has outdone any year in my past as far as change, risk-taking, and starting a new chapter in my life are considered. The last time I can remember going through something similar was in 2012, when I packed my car to leave my hometown of Charleston to live in Miami, FL.

In the year, 2016, I wrote 47 total blog posts, which is about 4 a month.

But, as I get older, I realize what things are more important to me and what I find joyful in life and that includes sharing my life with all of YOU, regardless of what others may think and say.

The Perfect Fit

Recently I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of jeans that I can wear to several different occasions-whether it be school, work, or a girls night out. During my California trip I got a chance to do a little bit of shopping in Santa Monica, and stopped by Nasty Gal. Ever since starting the book, #Girlboss, visiting Nasty Gal was definitely on my list of things to do while I was in LA. See what other things I did on my LA trip here: Continue reading
