  • Why It’s Important to See Unretouched Imagery

    I’ve been speaking with a lot of women on my podcast about body image and what they would say to someone who is struggling with it. I think that Photoshop plays a huge role in how women view themselves. As a former photographer and retoucher I know that A LOT goes into creating beauty images. […]

    Why do career and identity seem to be inextricably linked? I wanted to talk a little bit about identity as an artist. This will be a post in a newer section on my blog, “Mental Health“.

  • What Is a “Beach Body” Anyway?

    Today we’re talking “Beach Body”. What a silly term. I’ve briefly covered body image topics before in a previous post. I was so glad to hear that it resonated with some readers. It can be tough to have body confidence all year around. Especially in the summer, when you’re most susceptible to advertisements for the […]

  • Wednesday’s in my Good American Jeans

    I tried these Good American jeans on in the fitting room at Nordstrom. It was love at first try-on. Is that a thing? Well, it is now. I can’t believe jeans like this even exist. I don’t know about you but when I go pants shopping it’s often a nightmare. It’s so difficult finding pants […]

  • Why I Still Meditate and Maybe You Should Too

    I learned to meditate when I was very young. I’ve been meditating since I was 5. I mentioned that in the last post I wrote about Mental Health. Maybe I’ll share more on that story later (I know I keep saying that). Simply put, meditation helps the mind to calm down and release stress. That’s why […]

  • Body Image

    Talking body… Body image is not a topic that I’ve addressed on the blog before, which means I’ve had plenty of time to process my thoughts and position on the topic. The Start When I was younger I flipped through numerous fashion magazines that my mother had subscriptions to. The collection in the bathroom and […]

  • Tips to Prevent Sickness While Traveling

    I arrived back from Iowa yesterday. Recently I’ve been getting sick quite frequently while traveling. Getting sick while on a trip is such a bummer! Especially when it’s a short trip (which mine to Iowa was). Regardless of where you’re going or for how long, no one ever wants to get sick. It seems to […]
