THE TWENTY THIRD YEAR.


Two events during the year cause me to get deeply introspective & reflective; new year's & my birthday. It's strange how each year comes & goes, slow paced & rushed at the same time. Sometimes it seems like it was just yesterday I was turning sixteen, and in many ways it feels like a lifetime ago.

'If I knew then what I know now' is such a cliche thing, but if I knew then what I know now.... I can't even tell you how much lighter teenage kae would've felt. 

Happier. Freer. I guess that's the point of aging, though, learning what matters & how to grow & love & breathe.

Some things I've learned this twenty second year:

Surround yourself with good energy
It's true what they say; you become the people you spend time with. If you're with negative nancys or energy-suckers all the time, it's eventually going to drain you. Be picky with who you choose to let in & give your energy to. 

& once you choose your people.... hold on to them!

Life isn't on a timeline
No matter what society makes you think, you don't have to have done this or that in life by a certain time. NEVER do something just because it's what you're "supposed to." 

Carve your own path, even if it looks vastly different than those around you. It's not a race.

Give yourself a break
You will fail & make SO MANY mistakes. We're human, it's what we do. 

It's okay. It doesn't make you a bad person. With each mistake and failure God gives us an opportunity to grow. If all you can accomplish some days is pushing the 'next episode' button, you're not a failure for that. 

Life is a balancing act.

HERE'S TO TWENTY THREE. (lowkey sad '22' is no longer my theme song okay byyeee)

THE BRALETTE.


The bralette is having a MOMENT, in all its pretty, sometimes lacy glory. There's a kind of freedom in straying from traditional, UNCOMFORTABLE bras & trading them in for a less harsh counterpart.

& while a lot of them are still geared toward er, smaller chested ladies, I've been on the hunt & finding some really good ones for the rest of us! 

Once you find ones that work for you ya kinda never wanna go back, yes? They're feminine, pretty, & lightweight, & they come in so many different styles that you can pretty much find one for any kind of outer layer. 

I'M OBSESSED.

Three Tips For Finding Inspiration


Sometimes a case of the Mondays comes on for like, a solid week, am I right? It's sometimes easier to get uninspired than the opposite, which is really inconvenient. 

Here's a few of my go-to tips for getting back into your groove. They may seem simple, but they really work!

1// Get out of your comfort zone.
Sometimes you get so used to a routine that it's more harmful than helpful. For a new perspective, switch things up a bit. It doesn't have to be big, it can be something as simple as taking a few minutes to go for a walk. Take a bubble bath & do a face mask. Just do something different!

2// Create a mood board
Either on pinterest or from magazines, create a visual of the vibe you're feeling or the one you want. There's a reason why we're visual creatures; when we something concrete we're more likely to follow through. I'm ALWAYS on instagram & pinterest for a breath of fresh inspiration. 

3// Don't force it.
Know what they say about a watched pot never boiling? Same concept here. If you try to force inspiration, it's actually LESS likely it will come. Don't put too much pressure on yourself to create something just to get it out there. 

What do you do when you're feeling totally zapped?
