November is my least favorite month but also one of my favorite month's because of Diwali. The festival of lights. A time to celebrate the triumph of good over evil, light over darkness. A belated happy Diwali to you all. I wish you so much love and light. This month I feel like I am finding my way. Forging ahead as Chanel 2x.

The changing of the seasons has brought me a renewed sense of contentment in this version of myself. Its hard to articulate but I feel so happy to be me these days. After a year that tried me. I've found a way back to myself and one of my most favorite versions.

I discovered Kiehl's embarrassingly late in life I think somewhere in the middle of undergrad. By the time I got to grad school I had become more familiar with the brand having tried most of their products. I realize I've only ever reviewed one Kiehls product on the blog?! So, here I am today with a full fledged review on some of my Kiehl's cornerstones.

This past April I went to NYC for the first time in a very long-time. I saw my family. I gained perspective. I laughed. I cried. Coming home to KC was a very clarifying time in my life. I decided that I wanted to spend more time in the city I love the most with those I love the most. That decision has been one of the best ones I have made in a long time. I spent seven days with my family in this beautiful city that has endured despite going through so much. I was so happy to be apart of it all. Here's a little recap of my time in the Big Apple.

Wow, what a difference stepping away and taking time to take care of yourself makes, friends. This past year I was forced to reckon with myself and some of the demons I was facing. Add chronic stress + mental health struggles in addition to dealing with body image issues + add a fashion blog into the mix and something's gotta give. So, besides a few shoots/posts in the spring (which I truthfully shouldn't have done) I decided that the blog needed to be put on the back burner to protect my mental health. Yet leaving it untouched tugged on my heart strings.
