Escaping Anxiety

Escaping Anxiety

Feeling engulfed in your anxiety is an experience that not many can explain to others when you are in the depths of it. Everything feels blurred and yet you feel every emotion so strongly. Heart racing, no appetite, and just a constant feeling of fear. 

From roughly April 2016 to August 2016 I was in the pit of hell with my anxiety. To give you all a bit of a background on some of the things that transpired leading up to my mental break of 2016:

Mind. Fashion. Beauty

Mind. Fashion. Beauty

You might be wondering why the name change? To be honest when I first started this blog I was so deep with my anxiety that I couldn’t decide on a cool name. I knew that I wanted it to be memorable and had a great story behind it. As my blog grew older and I began to explore more options of what could potentially become of this little old blog, I realized a few things.

  1. The name is a mouthful

Year of firsts…

Last year when I initially started this blog I wasn’t too sure how far I would get with this project. Would I keep up with it for a year? Will I enjoy it? Will it spiral into something amazing?

Repeat Offender: Green

This weeks theme. I don’t have a brand new outfit every day, no one does. Not even the Kardashians do. So how do we rotate our favorite pieces into our wardrobe now that it is a little cooler out? Let me show you. Today I am wearing… Dynamite Long Waterfall Green Vest (originally from my Almost ready for fall post) but of course…

Sweater Weather

Sweater Weather

Fall is FINALLY HERE! I am so excited! First sweater outfit of the season and I’m keeping it casual. This past Sunday I attended the 3rd Avenue Feastival in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. It has become a tradition with my family that we get together. We always meet at my Aunt’s house to watch the afternoon football game before heading out…

Sneaker obsession

Sneaker obsession

A trend I have been noticing more and more lately. Sneakers with everything.. I mean the only outfit you can’t wear sneakers with is a bikini but everything else is fair game. Now as much as I love the look of heels I DO NOT like the feel of them. For an every day shoe I would prefer to wear sneakers, preferably…
