I made a quick sketch to show how I see the progression of relationships — in general — so you can start leaning to love your body. We get so in our head about our bodies, self love, etc. but it’s literally the same as any other relationship. The same rules apply. Stages of Relationship […]
Toxic people are everywhere and not always easy to spot. What seems like innocent, logical behavior on the surface can actually be the building blocks for a toxic relationship long term. I’ve left two toxic relationships (both living together, one engaged) and I wish I knew these patterns sooner. I actually remember Googling “am I […]
Learning to say no is an important part of building confidence. You can be the most “confident” person alive when no one is around. But that’s only one part of confidence. The other is being able to stay true to yourself and how to say no with confidence when people ask you to do something […]
I get why you’re frustrated. All the Instagram girls make loving your body sound as simple as signing up for a yoga class. You should be able to just inhale gratitude and exhale self love – done in 45 minutes flat. So why are you still feeling this way? Why do you still doubt your […]
At first, it’s tempting to go for the guy who makes you feel smart. The “safe” guy that makes you look like the exciting hero. Deep down, the guy you know you’re settling for.

Aries is a fire sign. What do we know about fire? It’s useful, but also dangerous. Aries is notorious for their ambition, but don’t let that fool you. Ambition and confidence aren’t the same thing. Aries shines bright on the surface, but that flickering flame can easily be doused without building true confidence. You’re enthusiastic […]
Your menstrual cycle is one of the most natural parts about being a woman. So why do we resist it so much? Instead of seeing your period as something you have to “put up with” as a woman, I’m offering alternative perspectives to help you feel better about your period. Obviously, I hope you’re finding […]
Body image, at its core, is your perception. The way you view your body, normally in terms of good or bad. This perception is shaped based on comparing your body to others you see and an idea of what bodies should look like. Everything comes together to create a positive, neutral, or negative body image.
