How I Transformed Social Media Into a Source of Positivity

Oh social media--how I love and hate you. When I say social media, I mainly mean Instagram, since that's the platform I spend the most time on, but I used to spend more time on Facebook.

Finding Beauty in Simplicity

Ever since the start of the new year, I have felt a strong desire to simplify my life--by life, I mainly mean my environment, but it extends to other facets as well.  I have always been, regrettably, somewhat of a materialist. I like buying and owning things, especially nice things. Since I started my first … Continue reading Finding Beauty in Simplicity
