Welcome

A Creativity-based Lifestyle Blog

Maybe you have a dream you want to figure out how to get back to, maybe you’re trying to live a healthier lifestyle, maybe you want to get closer to living how you want to live rather than what’s conventional, or maybe you just love a good quote to punch up your day. My role here is to provide inspiration.

 

The How & Why:

To be honest it’s been a rough 6 months, and I’ve had a hard time accepting or giving inspiration. Everything seemed to be in transition and sometimes you have to wallow in the dark for a bit before you can come to “what’s next” in your life. I imagine many of you have been there. The process of ‘figuring out life’ is never ending. I’ve found that if I have a creative medium to express myself, things become clearer faster.

My mode of expression has changed several times throughout my life. What I’ve become most drawn toward is finding a way to inspire other people. I’ve always been a writer, but at this moment, it’s how I feel I can express myself the best and provide as much info and value as I can.

 

What can you expect to find here?

Inspirational posts, health and beauty tips, awesome quotes, how to tap into your unique creativity and get more in tune with your true self, and more!

 

All my beauty and health posts will include only vegan sources.

I’ve also just launched brand new social media accounts to supplement this site and let us stay in touch! They will have cool stuff, promise.
