To the One That Left When I Couldn’t, Thank You

Everyone get’s one. One great, terrible, agonizing, stupid, amazing, fun filled love. Some get more than that, but everyone does get at least one. And every great love is different. Some work out, some don’t. And frankly, falling in love is scary. When we first met I knew that you were broken. I was too, in my own way. You had been jaded so many times, and I was a wild child with no plans on slowing down. We were so young when we met, so caught up in the thrill of our new found freedom that came with “adulthood”.

Heartbreak, Mistakes, and Money Problems… My Thankful Thanksgiving List

Heartbreak, Mistakes, and Money Problems… My Thankful Thanksgiving List

It’s no surprise to anyone that knows me that 2016 has not been kind to me. I’ve experienced a lot more challenges this year than I ever expected to. From moving out entirely on my own, to adopting a dog, to starting a blog, to trying to launch a photography business, to facing heartbreak, and so much more; this past year has been a series of unfortunate and demanding events. That’s why I think it’s more  important than ever this year for me to sit down and really put thought into the things that I’m thankful for. Tomorrow, as is tradition, my

For All the Girls Like Me

For All the Girls Like Me

“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes, the ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things… they move the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who

How This Busy Bee Stays Sane

How This Busy Bee Stays Sane

It’s no surprise to anyone that knows me that I live a relatively high stress life. Trying to make a name for myself as a young professional, while maintaining a blog and starting up a photography business, it seems like I’m always on the go. I feel like I’m constantly working on something and I’m sure my dog would agree. And, as I’m sure every busy girl knows, we need a way to relax and keep ourselves sane! So, here’s mine: Take a bubble bath. Seriously y’all. Is there any way that is better to relax than to take a long bubble bath

An Open Letter to the Guy That Verbally Absued Me

An Open Letter to the Guy That Verbally Absued Me

Hey there, Mr. Once Upon A Time, long time no talk! We actually haven’t talked since right after we broke up. Which I’m more than fine with, but there’s a lot that I’ve held in these past few years after our breakup that I’ve always wanted to get off my chest. I can remember the day we broke up so vividly. I was sitting on the floor, numb. Not even crying because I didn’t have it in me anymore. And you were yelling. Like always. Yelling and telling me how terrible of a person I was, how much your family

Here’s Lookin’ At You Kid

Here’s Lookin’ At You Kid

So, I’ve really tossed around the idea all day of making this post. I had something entirely different planned for today and I really thought that I was done with the election. But, with everything that’s happened in the past 24 hours I felt like I needed to have a final say.  In this time of hate we need a message of love, and here’s mine. It’s no secret that I didn’t want Donald Trump to win. I’ve been very vocal about the fact that not only did his platform go against everything that I personally believe in but I found his words

Ashely Graham: The Hero We Need

Ashely Graham: The Hero We Need

  In a time where all we see are images that have been retouched to the point that they don’t look human, where the girl that is in the picture doesn’t even look like the girl in the picture, we need women who are willing to spread body positivity. We need women of ALL sizes who are willing to step forward, show their flaws and be proud to have them. Their cellulite, their pudge, the fact that their arms jiggle when they aren’t flexed. All. Of. It. Enter Ashley Graham.  Now, just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past

Why I Decided to Launch a Blog

Why I Decided to Launch a Blog

  Over the past month, while developing the blog / website (and being very vocal about the fact that I was doing so) I received the same question a lot. “Tricia, why on earth did you decide to start a blog?”. The short answer that I always give is this, “Well, I just love writing. So, why not do it publicly? It’ll be fun!” But, there is so, so much more to it than that. I originally had the idea after what is arguably my worst break up. It was a tumultuous, whirlwind of a relationship and the breakup reflected
