It influences how we think, feel, and act. It…

    We have a new home!

    Hello loves! I haven’t posted on my blog in a while because I have been working and improving my new site. I wanted my website to feel more like home.

From working late nights trying to build the site, to days were I learnt how to code (YouTube), to the countless days I spent…
