Friendly reminders for the perfectionist in you

Friendly reminders for the perfectionist in you

I’ve always been a bit of a perfectionist, and by a bit, I mean completely. To the point where it stops me cold from finishing things I’m so excited to work on. I’ve gone from posting 2 to 3 times a week to about once […]

Things my mom has taught me

This week was super important for two reasons. First, the election – which I hope you all voted in! And secondly – it’s my momma’s birthday week! Her birthday was yesterday and we spent the day rewatching Stranger Things and eating takeout food because if […]

Should disabilities be added to the Sims?

Should disabilities be added to the Sims?

3 financial habits you gotta break right now

3 financial habits you gotta break right now

As much as I hate to say it, I am the queen of bad habits. I procrastinate like it’s my job. My diet consists of coffee and carbs. And no matter how many times I tell myself I won’t fall asleep watching tv, I’ve got […]

My life at the moment: I adopted a kitten!

If you follow me on Instagram (which you should!), then you will have already seen my fun little surprise: I adopted a kitten this week! Currently, she’s exiled to my brother, Kevin’s room. She’s also in a little onsie made from a sock so she […]
