The Weekend of Turning 24

The Weekend of Turning 24

We have made it to the official year – Kobe year! Although my birthday was actually on a Thursday, it was only right to extend it into the weekend.

The Importance of Self-Care: Backpack Edition

I’ve been sick. Like really sick. And I don’t mean writers block kind of sick. I mean I’ve had lack of self-care, which led me to complete isolation from any social media platform for weeks. I know a lot of you have been curious as to when I was going to upload another blog post; and to be honest I was questioning the same thing.
