Boudoir, Body Confidence and Homebody Photo

The relationship I have with myself has always been a complicated one. I’m an over thinker, a people pleaser, a plan ahead-er, and I hold myself to standards that are usually unattainable.

Apple Watch Series 2 Review

It’s weird how life works, because as a kid I despised nap time. In kindergarten I always reluctantly retired to my woven multi-colored mat, when what I really wanted was to finger paint, or run around the playground.
