acceptance awareness

hey there!

no matter where we are in the world, one constant thing that we see lacking is acceptance.  whether it’s in regards to religion, race, or maybe just you.

in an effort to raise awareness about acceptance, i’ve joined in collaboration with a few others to start a blog on acceptance.  as of this moment, we’ve been focusing on accepting yourself, so it looks a bit like an inspiration blog.  nonetheless, it’s casual, funny, and uplifting whenever you need a smile.

so if you don’t mind, please check out acceptanceawareness.wordpress.com to support acceptance all around the world:)

every person that clicks on the link is supporting this amazing cause and is changing the world, one click at a time.  thanks everyone!

in the harry potter series, dumbledore says:

“Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic, capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.”

the liebster award!

good morning! :)

i’ve just been nominated for the liebster award, an award meant to help people discover new blogs.

so, quick rules before we start:


  1. thank the blogger who nominated you
  2. answer the questions you were given
  3. nominate blogs that deserve the award
  4. let the bloggers you nominated know
  5. make 11 questions for your nominees to answer

so let’s begin!

nominator: my friend kirstin nominated me for this award; she’s one of my absolute favorite beauty bloggers, and just a really sweet person overall, so please go check out her block on the link above!!

here are the questions that i have to answer:

1. What have you learned from blogging? 

i’ve learned that not everyone’s writing for themselves, and that some people are going for the followers and the likes and the views — that’s ok too, in fact, that’s great! but i’ve learned that sometimes, you have to look away from the numbers and just write for you, not anyone else.

this i believe // part I

is it possible to have blogger’s block? i’ve been blogging for less than a month, so this is a little sad, but hey, i’m still writing!

anyway, i haven’t blogging for a few days now, mainly because i had almost no ideas.  but here i am, and i ended up typing up a post that i was saving for later — it’s a bit premature, so i decided to make two parts.
