Let's Get Coffee 

'Let's Get Coffee' is a series of personal blog posts, where I work to break down mental health stigmas, and talk about my own history with depression, suicide, abusive relationships, and my eating disorder recovery.

I believe that the best way to break down stigmas is to talk about the things that make us human.

Hi loves!

In today's Let's Get Coffee, I wanted to chat about fashion blogging as a job, and talk about the different elements of work that go into running a full-time blog. When I was 19 years old, I became interested in Instagram bloggers, and started playing with photo editing, and taking OOTDs on my iPhone. The nature of social media can make everything we do appear easy and effortless, so I wanted to know: how hard could i...

Hi loves!

I decided to leave the 'bloggersphere' for a couple weeks, as I was visiting family in Ann Arbor and Oklahoma City, and I really wanted to spend quality time with my phone off. 

I've been known to take a couple days off here and there, but since I started blogging, I have never taken a whole two weeks, which felt incredibly long (but necessary) for me. 

I love blogging: I love the writing, the creative aspect of it, the...

Hi loves, 

Being in an abusive relationship taught me a lot about myself- it also taught me a lot about our society, and how much toxic, unhealthy relationships become normalized, and even glorified. 

There is something about dangerous, unpredictable, Bonnie and Clyde-esque romances that audiences absolutely love, but some of us go a step further, when we start trying to turn our own love stories into those movies.

This blog post was inspired by a Q&A I sent out yesterday on Instagram- one of the questions I received, was how to stay motivated as a micro-influencer (or micro-blogger), especially at the beginning.

Many websites, including this one, suggest that a micro-influencer is someone with less than 10,000 followers on Instagram. But there are also many web searches that suggest that a micro-influencer is someone with between 2,000 a...

Hi loves!

Welcome back to 'Let's Get Coffee'--  if you've been reading my blog for a while, you'll know that I am a huge advocate for talking about mental health, and mental health stigmas. Because of the graphic detail that I use in my LGC's, I get lots of questions online, and in real life of people asking, "why are you talking about this?" Some of the posts that I write are quite graphic, unconventional, and s...

Hi loves!

I recently re-read one of my previous blog posts, which was an open letter that I called "Things I Wish I'd Said to My Abuser"- I will link it here. During this blog post, I mentioned wanting to talk about the signs of emotional + verbal + psychological abuse, but I didn't feel like I could properly talk about it until I had shared my own story. Now that I've talked about my own personal history with abuse, I feel muc...

Hi loves!

This post is inspired by the many videos and blog posts I've seen of others doing something similar, and my 21st birthday, which is today. 

I wanted to share 21 lessons that I've learned in my time being alive- some of these are more serious than others, but all of them count. 

1. Take care of your skin. Drink lots of water. Don't prove to be a hard worker by neglecting sleep. Listen to your body, it knows what it...

Hi loves,

It's been a minute since I've written on here. I don't have any excuses.

This month has been absolutely mad: classes finished a few weeks ago, I moved into a new apartment, I went to New York with my best friend... I've been in constant motion, with barely a moment to contain myself. My birthday is also in three days!

This LGC is titled what it's titled because I have news about my eating disorder: I've been doing reall...

**Full Disclaimer** I have an eating disorder that follows both restricting and purging tendencies— that means that I will be talking about starvation methods, body-shaming, and throwing up. If any of this could be potentially triggering to you, or simply too graphic to read (because yes, bulimic disorders are ugly), go ahead and skip this one. This blog post is going to be gross— I repeat, this one is going to be gross!!!!!!...

Hi loves,

I'm sorry for the late post— I returned home from Japan on Tuesday at 2:00 in the morning, and then proceeded to go to class at 9:00 am. Essentially, spring break was a complete success, but the travel was long, and I've since been thrown straight back into the chaos of college. On top of that, I'm currently not feeling the best- I went to a Lorde concert last night, and woke up feeling like death. 

I ha...
