• Finally found the box with my jewlery.... me 10 minutes later wearing everything feeling fabulous lol .... 💭 remember when you were 5 and you broke into your moms jewlery and put on everything including her heels and paraded around her room like you were a grownup? Man what a care free time back then #randomthoughts
  • Stop telling women to smile____________ I walked by this mural on my first trip to Chicago over 3 years ago. It was like negative 20 degrees and Bryan was trying to show me around while simultaneously freezing his butt off because this Chicago native had not dressed warmly enough while your girl did a pretty good job being prepared for the tundra. But I remember taking a picture in front of this because I loved the images of all the diverse women (I’ll show you the whole thing on stories) but what resonated with me was the message. Not sure about you but I am not the kind of girl that smiles all the time for no reason. So I often heard “smile” as I was growing up and been now, it really bugs me for a couple reasons. 1. Why do women HAVE to smile all the time? Why is it not acceptable to be serious instead of soft. Just cuz we aren’t smiling doesn’t mean we are angry or upset.Why don’t people walk around telling men to smile more?! 2. Why would you sit there and tell someone to smile when that is not their intent. Maybe that’s just their face, maybe their in a bad mood.... you don’t know. Instead you would rather make them feel forced to give you some awkward fake smile so that you could feel good about yourself. Haha it really bugs me. Do you feel the same?
  • Isn’t it funny how life works? When I took this picture, I was ruffling through clothing trying to find some cute stuff I wanted to shoot and then I saw this organe Chicago sweater and faded stone wash jeans and thought it would be cute to take a picture in them because my husband is from Chicago.  Well 6 months later, I’ve come full circle and here I am on my second week living in Chicago. Im excited for this new chapter with my family. If you have any recommendations for me that pertain to Chicago in general please leave a comment. They would be greatly appreciated. #happyfridayeveryone #chicagolocal #chicagoblogger #newtochicago
  • VISIBLE IMPROVEMENTS IN SEVERAL WEEKS! I’m so happy to report that after using the @bioeffectofficial EGF serum for the past few weeks my skin is firmer, bounces back faster, and has a luminosity I haven’t seen in a while. #Ad
This was my very first experience with EGF and I’m definitely a fan now! It was important to me that the serum only contained 7 ingredients, so I knew exactly what I was applying to my face. I would definitely recommend you look into this EGF Serum if you’re looking to try a new skincare product that will hydrate and restore your skin this winter. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Happy thanksgiving 🦃🍁🍽 hope your day is filled with good food, some good booze and great conversations! This is the first time im not eating a home cooked meal for thanksgiving because Bryan and I are exhausted from our move and road trip and we don’t have any of our furniture or kitchen things so we will go out to eat. Curious if it will feel less festive? Do you ever just go out to eat instead of going a home cooked meal?
  • Finally got back in the gym yesterday and man did it feel good. I’m gonna start going regularly to at least even out the calories I’ll be eating during the holidays lol. My plan is to to cardio 3 days a week with at least 1 day of weights. Who’s with me?! Let’s keep each other accountable.
  • What brings you the most joy? Do you ever sit and think about that? I hope you do because you can make more room for those thing and less for the things that make you doubt yourself and feel less than. ——
My little cats @peenyhoudini @smushball and our dog @mypetpawsy bring us so much joy and happiness, I can’t imagine a world without them. I would move mountains for them becaYe THEY ARE my babies. When they are sick I feel down when I’m down they can always bring a smile to my face. I mean who wouldn’t want that?! ——
That’s why it’s so important to me that the transition from Los Angeles to Chicago was a smooth one for is but mainly for them because unlike Bryan and I, they don’t know what’s going on. That’s why we decided to drive across country. Because flying all 3 pets in the winter was gonna be more stressful on them then a slow and steady car ride. I’m working on the Vlog now of our cross country trip. So stay tuned for that. But I found this picture of Peeny and just wanted to give her and the other fire members of our family a shout-out. ——
Do you have any pets? I’d love to know what they are and their names?

  1. Hi! I just wanted to let you know I read the entire post and that it therefore, did not fall on deaf ears.

    I too am appalled with some of the comments I’ve seen on social media, haven’t gotten any myself yet (truly grateful for that) but I’ve seen them on many different pages and unfortunately quite a few left on yours. I feel ashamed and angered when people attack others with senseless verbal violence, especially when people attack you, who seem like such a nice and charismatic person.

    Hopefully, there is a solution in the not so distant future. In the meantime, take care!/Albin

  2. Hi! I have followed you for a long time, and now I am a little dissapointed. I just don’t understand why you say things about the Kardashian sisters in your post about bullying. Remember the golden rule: “if you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.”

    • All I said is that Kylie has had plastic surgery very young and that young girls and women look up to her. All facts nothing mean.

  3. Instead of whining about how people verbally mistreat you, how about being strong enough to ignore their threats? If you stood in the other person’s shoes, then maybe they would have more respect for you.

    • Alvin, I’m definitely not whining about how people mistreat me. I wanted to bring attention to an issue teen are taking their lives over and I used some of my experiences as examples.

  4. Loved the article and love your writing in general.

    I think most of the problem lies with Dan’s social media persona. His constant pictures of scantily clad women depicts them as disposable and worthless, women who only hang around him to try to get into his pants and then use him for his money.

    I dont know him personally and I know he is dear to you, but he seems to idolise the objectification of women on a worrying level.
    I understand that this could all just be an act and marketing strategy for him, but this kind of objectification sends out the wrong message to young men. What concerns me is that fact that he encourages others to aspire towards it.
    Unsurprisingly the comments are full of misogynistic comments from young men. The kind of young man who thinks a woman is nothing more than a vagina.

    I guess if you wanted to avoid the comments, and not feel so degraded by it, it would be best to avoid being in any photos with Dan. I understand that Dan is dear to you and you could just happily go by and ignore the comments, but for every single photo you feature in on his profile, your worth as in woman and an individual will always be being questioned and lowered.

    Keep blogging, keep fit and do beautiful things but also don’t be an addition to the guns and sexism.

  5. Amen! If there is one thing I can’t stand its bullies. We are supposed to support one another, not put each other down. I feel awful for celebrities who have to explain themselves or hide away from the media because of stupid rumors and lies made up about them. Shit, there are celebrities who get death threats daily! No one should have to go through that.
    I am very thankful you are not in hiding! I love seeing your pictures on Instagram and reading your blog! If you ever need an ally. I got you  ❤️

  6. I agree with this entire post and give you props for having the courage to write about such a sensitive subject. However, I don’t understand how you were hurt by cyberbullying. Don’t all the positive things said about you help make up for it?

  7. I was looking for this post because I found out that my ex had posted something from when we were dating and I got completely obsessed with social media and Google. Finding out if someone is saying something about me and also scared wat people might think of me.

    I think it’s good that you speak out about this because it doesn’t matter how famous you are or how strong… It will always affect you
