Over this past weekend, my family and friends threw me the best grad party a girl could ever ask for. They definitely had my heart (and stomach, of course) full from all the candy, mimosas, food, and endless amounts of love that day. If I am going to be honest, I for sure was not […]Read More Sunday Funday
Although I am far from being a dedicated festival-goer, I have this secret desire of being the go-to “braid girl” at these functions (big aspirations, ya know?). Not too sure how I feel about star pasties and boots with the fur, but if braiding hair is a passion of mine, I gotta go for it, […]Read More Practice Makes Perfect
Last year was wild to say the least. And, the worst part of it all, is I forgot that my feelings mattered, too. You see, I have this semi-strange relationship with myself and the world. I weirdly hate people, but weirdly want to constantly please them at the same time. Somedays, I think I’m actually winning […]Read More Take it, don’t leave it.
If you know me, you know how much I can binge watch “Shameless” on Netflix like its my third job. Recently, I decided it was time to put my sick obsession aside for a sec and watch something a little more worthwhile. “To the Bone” follows Ellen and her struggling journey to overcome the unpleasant […]Read More “To the Bone”
It’s me again— Let’s be real, my last post was not something I was stoked to talk about. I don’t enjoy being vulnerable and I definitely don’t enjoy how everything has turned me into someone I barely want to be around sometimes. But, if I’ve taken one positive thing away from any of it is […]Read More Control.
Honestly, this blog is a big deal for me. The one thing that I’ve learned since I started this whole blogging journey is that I can’t be brushing aside the things and events that truly define who I am. I’m that kind of girl that genuinely puts others before herself. I’m that kind of girl that […]Read More #RealTalk
Remember when I said that one day I want my bridesmaids in all black everything and chokers? Well, whether my cousin Alex supports my awesome idea or not, it’s for sure happening (love you man!). For me, chokers are a staple. And, dark clothing is always a plus. I truly don’t leave the house without […]Read More Thank you, Barbra Streisand.
Mom, I realize that you may not understand where I’m coming from and I realize that we come from completely different generations. But, I need you to know that cannabis doesn’t define me. Smoking in the backyard doesn’t make me a loser. Smoking with my friends doesn’t make you a bad mom. Writing about it […]Read More But mom, it’s not what you think.
Since graduation, I’ve taken up a new hobby: reading. I know, I know. I’m just as surprised as you are. Let me make this very clear, I’m not on the fifth book of a series or anything crazy like that. That’s far too much commitment. I’m more of a self-help book with pictures kind-of-girl. When coming […]Read More A Guide to Me, Myself, and I
Hey! It’s Cwissy (Christina for way too long), So many emotions are weirdly coming to mind as I write up my first post. Nervous? Completely. Anxious? Stupid question to be asking the girl who has learned to take her anxiety by the horns each and every single day whether it’s wanted or not. Excited? Oh, […]Read More Fear not, it’s me, Cwissy G!
