It's been about two months since I finished my Accutane treatment and everyday I am still in shock that my skin is so FABULOUS. I'm obsessed.

In July (two-ish months into my treatment), my skin looked like … Continue reading Accutane update: Two months post-graduation
IAMO - I. Am. Missing. Out. I don't suffer from the fear of I'm missing out; I literally AM missing out. I'm twenty-four years young and all I do is wake up, go to work, and go home with a sprinkle of library trips and gym visits in between. I really try not to compare … Continue reading IAMO, not FOMO
