New Year Self Love

I’m back with a new quote generator from, and this time it’s self-love centric. This is going to be a big theme for me personally in 2018, as it’s something I personally struggle with still.

Whether you’re having a bad day or need a confidence boost, often a positive quote or affirmation can be uplifting. I definitely love a good quote to gain a different perspective or insight into something I’m dealing with at the time. Sometimes that affirmation can come in the form of a sweet text from a friend or in something you read on Instagram. But sometimes, you may need these affirmations sooner rather than later to give yourself that extra self-care.

Using this self-love generator from Gifts you can find the perfect quote or affirmation for what you need. For instance, if you are struggling with self-esteem or self-reflection, you can filter your quotes and affirmations so that it shows you encouraging words like “I am worthy of good things” or “I value myself and my imperfections.” It’s a great way to find exactly the words you need to hear so you can feel good and value yourself and your worth. It doesn’t hurt that they have this brilliant J.K. Rowling quote in the mix! 🙂

It’s important to know the things that make you feel better when you’re feeling down. Quotes might not be your thing, so I encourage you to find what is!


Grateful for Mew


As Thanksgiving approaches it’s always a good time to remember what we’re thankful for and to think about giving back to others. Actually, any day is a good day to be thankful and give back; but it’s nice to have a day where you know so many people are putting out gratitude vibes all at once.

With all of the natural disasters and tragedies striking around the world, I’ve been trying to donate to as many causes as possible to the best of my ability. I often feel bad that I can’t do more, so I was thrilled to be given an opportunity to work with Tidy Cats on their Help Meowt project! This meant that I got to choose a shelter that I felt was in need, and send them extra kitty litter. Often, we forget about the pets that need our help after natural disasters strike. That’s why I chose to send litter to Wine Country Animal Lovers, to assist the pets and families in need after the horrible wild fires that raged through Northern California. They housed displaced pets, took care of the injured, and reunited them with their owners (among other countless acts of kindness). I’m so happy to be able to help an organization that’s been working so hard to help others, even if it’s just with providing them some much needed kitty litter for all the clawed fur babies.

So here’s some of my gratitude: Thank you Wine Country Animal Lovers for working hard to help the pets we love during a natural disaster (and the rest of the time too!) Thank You Tidy Cats for giving me this wonderful opportunity to help and reach out Thank you to all the kitties for your love and companionship!

If you want to reach out and help our furry friends, consider donating to your local shelter or volunteering! You can also look up shelters in areas with recent natural disasters to see what kind of help they need. Happy Thanksgiving to you!


The ‘Fall’ of the Animal Cosmetic Industry

Autumn is an exciting time to be thankful for beauty products that leave us feeling fresh and glowing.  

The unfortunate truth is that animals may have died to test the eyeshadow or lip shade you’ve been wanting to try. Even today in what feels like an era when technology rules the day, animals are used to assess the safety of many cosmetics and personal care products.

More Sleep, Less Stress

As someone who both stresses easily, and doesn’t sleep enough… I’m finally owning up to the fact that there’s definitely a correlation here 😀 The amazing infographic below explains it WAY better than I can (and it’s pretty too!) I’ve gotten to a point in my life where I’m fed up with my own bullshit that leaves me making my own life harder. How ridiculous is that?? I am the cause of 80% of my unhappiness, and yet I don’t change anything?! No more, I’m over it, I’m taking charge. And how nice that I can start by just sleeping more – hey, that’s a pretty easy fix! So, take a look at the infographic, and join me in deciding just to catch a few more zzzz’s for the benefit of both my skin and mood. Cuz man, I can’t get anything done when I’m stressed out!
