ANNIE, a series

I’ve been incredibly MIA from my blog lately. Truthfully, struggling on the direction and development of my brand but I’m gradually getting there! Learning to produce quality content that I’m truly satisfied with has been challenging, but the process of it all makes me happy. Still making sure to work hard and still have fun. It’s not about finding balance in your life but accepting that there will be ups and downs! Life is unpredictable.

Here are some lovely shots of one of my good friends, Annie! If you see this, I love you and I am grateful for having you around through my hard times.


Well, not just yet. Just a few more weeks until the beloved Summer 2017 comes to a closing. Here are my tips to soak up the sun.

Go out and do something you've always wanted to do!

As always, thanks for stopping by.

Lacking Consistency

Annddd… I’m back!

I’m so sorry I have been on a little break from posting recently. Unexpected events regarding family arised and my school work just piled up. So I had to put aside the writing for a bit. No more excuses!! For now, here’s the deal… 

In 2 days I’ll be graduating high school. As of now, it still has yet to hit me. My high school career has been one of the toughest experiences I have faced– from the constant judgement (from both friends and family) to the lack of motivation and repetitive routine. After 4 years, I still don’t have a place or purpose. I still have yet to find the friends that will stick by me through anything, but I have learned from each and every person I’ve interacted with through my high school experience. I feel as if these 4 years of my life shaped who I am and built the foundation of my morals and personal values. Lacking consistency in my life, but truly, when is life ever consistent? 

Throughout these 4 years… I learned who and what is important to me, how to be myself and why it’s important to care for yourself. But where am I off to next? 

As always, thanks for stopping by.
