How do you even start your first official blog post? Honestly, this feels pretty weird, but it’s been a long time coming. I’ve loved writing ever since I was 8 years old, writing in that infamous “Password Journal” and then upgrading to more “mature”, colorful notebooks. I still have a journal now, and I can’t live without it. Every time I have too many feelings that I can’t really tell anyone else, I light a candle, put on my favorite Spotify playlist, and the words effortlessly write themselves.
I’m not going to lie – I actually really hate attention. Being in a room where people are staring at only me is an absolute nightmare. But I realized that my love for fashion and makeup usually makes me the most dressed-up person in the room. My friends have definitely made fun of me for it, but lately I’ve begun to embrace it. Growing up I used to hide my thoughts and feelings about things, not showing people the real me. But now, at almost 23 years old, I’m finally confident enough to showcase who I am, and there is no shame in that. I sincerely hope that those of you reading will continue to follow me and I’m so thankful for all my friends and family who have supported me in creating this blog!
