One thing I wish I knew during my first few experiences with mental illness is how to handle depression in the moment. I’m a big fan of lifestyle changes, talking to a therapist, and even looking into medication. But none of those options can help immediately. After years of experiencing depression in many forms, I’m only starting to get a better handle on what to do in those tough moments when you truly feel your worst. Whether you experience depression or not, I think these tips can help any time you are feeling some sort of negative emotion.
When it comes to creating high-quality content, it’s just as important to focus on the visuals as it is to focus on the written content. I remember when I first started blogging, there was definitely a learning curve. I mean, take a look at some of my earlier posts and you’ll see what I mean. But that’s totally ok! It’s all part of the process. Getting your images to a high-quality standard takes time, patience, and the desire to learn. So here are my top tips:

It’s that time of year again where I like to look back on my college graduation (class of 2015 over here!) and think about all the things I’d might do differently. Although I don’t necessarily have major regrets, there are of course a few things I might tweak to make life easier for myself.
But the truth is, there are so many things you learn in the first few years of post-grad. It’s as much a time of learning as college itself, and it’s important to know that while going through it. That said, if I could go back and do the last three years over again, here’s what I’d do differently....
Scrolling through Pinterest and seeing those nearly perfect tablescapes always intimidated me. But once I decided to give it a try, I realized styling a table was actually quite simple. So I’m super excited to break down my step-by-step process with you in today’s post, featuring some affordable pieces and yummy wine you’ll want to use for your next party!
1. Pick a Theme
You don’t need to get too specific with your theme. It’s more just about choosing a vibe and color scheme so you have some sort of guidelines to stick to. These stunning AVA Grace wine bottles were the inspiration for my table today. I wanted something light, airy, and perfect for spring. Soft colors and natural textures, and delicate florals were all on my list. I pulled colors from both the AVA Grace Rosé and Pinot Grigio.
How many of you guys actually keep a diary? I always had one throughout high school, and, since I save everything (yes, that is my actual diary and real photos from high school above), I thought it’d be fun to take a look through it now that I’m older. Fun may have been the wrong word. It was more like cringe-worthy, but very amusing. What I found most interesting was that there were a few good nuggets in there that I still find to be true. So, you guys get to listen in on my 16-year-old emo self. Ready?

Don’t we all wonder that??...
