Welcome! About me

img_5754

Hello all and welcome to my blog! I am a 24-year-old girl who lives in the suburbs of Chicago. If your definition of living your best life includes sitting on the couch with your best friends sipping wine while laughing, stumbling through life with your boyfriend and/or dog, and seeking out new experiences whether through traveling or right near you then this blog may be for you.  Here you will read about my thoughts, my life, my takes and tips on living your best life, and a sprinkle of reviews on s*** I use. Really a mix of things, I don’t follow a certain post schedule, I just want to show you my version of “Living life to the fullest”.

If you want to learn more about me head over to my partnerships page or you know read my blogs.

Something that hit me in 2️⃣4️⃣ Stop beating yourself up over food 🥘 . . This especially goes for those who are in recovery but still have a hard time with not sticking to a diet like I do at times. . . How many times do you have a view like this 🌄 . . How many days a year to get to celebrate living and thriving on your birthday with your loved ones some who aren’t promised to be there the next year 🥂 🎊 . . How many days are you out of your routine experiencing what life has to offer ✨🌈 . . You don’t get these moments often, they are way more rare then you think, so why are you associating them with being angry at food? Sure you experience life and not experience food and drink if that’s your choice. However, if you wanna indulge in moments like this DONT LET FOOD RUIN YOUR LIFE. . . Your body is amazing and versatile and can always be worked on to make healthier. That is a choice you can make 3️⃣6️⃣5️⃣ days of the year. Getting the opportunity to experience what the world has to offer is a special and occasional thing for most of us so why ruin it by getting mad at yourself for eating food. Go enjoy life and when you’re back in reality develop a healthier you 💗 . . DO NOT LET YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD LET YOU MISS OUT ON LIFE 🌄🌌🌉 . . #foodrelationship #eatingdisorderrecovery #bulimiarecovery #blogger #lifestyleblogger #influencer #enjoyfood #1stphormlegionnaire #iam1stphorm #fat2fit #losingweight #fitnesscommunity #happy #livinglifemyway #eatfood #chicagoblogger #arizonaviews #thriving #losingweight #findhappiness #happy #socialmedia #summer #vacation #doyou #experiencelife #lifeafter #doingme #1stphorm

✨ One time, many years ago maybe when I was in 6th grade, I wasn’t next to my family on a plane and I sat next to a woman who traveled all the time with her husband. She was showing me pictures of places she’d been and where she lived that were gorgeous. I said to her something a long the lines of “I wish I lived somewhere beautiful enough to take photos like that”. She responded with “Every place is beautiful you just have to look for the beauty in it”. . . I completely forgot about that conversation for years but know that I’m old enough, have an adventurous enough heart, I can’t stop thinking about it ♥️ Find beauty in everything 🌌 . . What are some our favorite local beautiful places to go to?

Knowledge 🧠 is power 💥 . . I am trying to pick up anything and everything to help me expand my mind. Going back to traditional school with a full time job is not realistic for me. Nor is there really classes for what I’m trying to do. What’s realistic is picking up things in books and online and honing skills. It’s truly the only way to develop and grow because even if my vibes are high I’m not in alignment with where I’m at and I refuse to stay here forever. . . That being said I am going to start working on a few projects for you guys, which I will announce when they are past being my brain child 💗Comment your favorite growth books, podcasts, YouTube links, blogs etc below and I may check them out 👇🏾 . . #style #lifestyle #iam1stphorm ##recoveryisworthit #1stphorm #recoveryjourney #fitness #edrecovery #girlswholift #influencer #fitnessmotivation #findyourstrong #knowledge #inspiration #leadership #influence #socialmedia #picoftheday #followme #me #summer #smile #healthy #lifestyle #tbt #girl #beautiful #igdaily #happy
