Wildlight&Lush – A 20-Something's Life & Adventures

Snowshoe was a shit show. Now in the Winter, it’s a different story. I had a great experience skiing there a few years back, so I thought, “oh, a mountain top summer trip? Sounds GREAT!” We were all so excited, planning our activities, what we wanted to see and do, etc. I spoke on the phone a few time with different people trying to get my questions answered because their website is SO hard to…

So many people say that happiness is not a destination, but a way of being and I totally agree with that! Happiness doesn’t come when you lose the weight, when you finally move into your dream house, or when your get the job you’ve always wanted. Happiness is an accumulation of good attitude, finding the silver living, appreciation for life, and finding beauty in every flaw. I think it comes with time, maturity, and understanding. Compromise and…

Hey friends! If you keep up with my “Chronic Illness Chronicles” you probably remember a little something about swollen optic nerves and vision issues that accompanied my Humira use. (read: HERE & HERE!) My eyes are improving – slowly but surely. I have another follow up appointment with the neuro-ophthalmologist at the end of July, so she can mark my progress. BUT, I was told not to stay on the Humira as they were worried it could cause…

In short? Yes. If you want more details, read on. I’ve been seeing this Lipsense thing all over – people are selling it, people are wearing it, and everyone is giving it their 2 cents. Lipsense is a liquid lipstick like no other – it actually seems to be more like a stain than a lipstick, which is probably why it passes all the “swipe and show” tests. It doesn’t come off on ANYTHING and actually comes…

One of Kyle’s friends got married this past weekend, and it was such a beautiful ceremony and area to get married in. I did a horrible job photographing the weekend, so… oops. We drove out the day of the wedding since it only took a few hours to get there, and I thought since the ceremony was at 4:30pm and check in was at 3pm, we should get to our hotel early so I have…

Tanning? An Addiction? YAS. Tanning can be an addicting thing! Why? Because human beings are vain and we’ve been brainwashed to think that tan is best and tan is beautiful and tan is eeeeverything. It does sort of equate to health and happiness because when we have color, we do sort of glow. And I’m convinced having a tan makes my chubbiness a little less chubby aaaand it doesn’t matter how many times I tell myself “pale…

So often I think to myself about what my parents might say if someone asked them how their children are doing. I saw it when family friends graduated high school and college – people always asked how their child was doing, how college was going, what their plans were, etc. And I always compared my journey to what those kids and my siblings are/were going through. “Their parents have such good answers to those questions.…
