The Reason

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!

More to come,
