About Me

Hi there!  Thanks for visiting my page!  I wanted to share a little about myself so you can get to know me better.  I grew up in a small town but traded it in to live in the big city-  Pittsburgh.  The city has given me opportunities and experiences I wouldn’t have had otherwise.  I am a lover of sweets, matching outfits, fitness, belly laughs, sarcasm, coffee, and time with my family and friends that have become family.  I cherish genuine relationships and as I have gotten older strictly focus on quality over quantity.

I am 32 years old, single, and have no kids.  Yup, just failing at life over here haha  If I had a dollar for every  time someone asks me if I was married or have kids, I’d be ballin right now.  Instead when I say no their reaction is “Oh you poor thing.”  But I honestly wouldn’t have it any other way.  My life has always been a journey especially in the dating world.  I could write a book on what not to do for men!  Relationships have always been challenging for me.  I haven’t found someone who will support me through the difficult times.  I have faith that one day the perfect person for me will come into my life and it will all make sense.  To add a little humor and make ya’ll feel better about your dating life, I will most definitely be sharing disastrous dates!

I started this blog because my goal is to change someone’s life for the better.  I have dedicated my life to this goal by pursuing a career in non-profit.  I recently realized my life is a story of its own that could potentially impact others.  I want this blog to offer hope and inspiration to others.  My health has dictated my story but with each trial I can control the end.  If by sharing my story it helps one person, then it was worth it.  I am a very very private person.  There are less than a handful of people who know my story from beginning to present.  Being vulnerable is scary.  I have always cared a little too much of what people think about me.  I am afraid people who hear my story won’t believe it or think it’s not worth sharing, but I have decided to stop the what ifs in my mind in the hopes my story can connect with others and be a source of comfort and inspiration.  I will go more into my chronic illnesses as this blog evolves.

Fitness has always been my outlet.  It’s the one thing I can control and where you can achieve greatness if you work hard.  When I am working out, I forget about the problems of the day.  I treasure the ability to workout because there are countless times it has been taken away from me.  Working out isn’t a chore, it’s a privilege. There are so many people that wish they had the freedom from their body to workout.  So fitness will be a big part of this blog.  I will be sharing workouts and healthy meal options.

Lastly, I will be posting about fashion and beauty.  I have always loved that fashion gives you the ability to be anyone you want just by changing your style.  If I had to describe my style I would say its chic, preppy, and sporty.  Clothes and make-up give you the ability to look “normal” while on the inside things are a mess.  Through my sickest days I could have the outward appearance of being healthy and that made me develop a deep love for clothes and makeup!

I hope you will join me on this new journey!  If there is something you want to know, hear, or read please let me know.  It’s great to get feedback on what you would like to see while visiting this page!
