My Travel Altar

Hi everyone! Today I’m showing you what my “travel” altar looks like! I first created a travel altar while my mom was in the hospital. I needed something small (at first, it was just an Altoids tin) that I could take while visiting my mom. The size of the altar grew slowly over a few…

My first vlog- June 2021

I JUST got around to posting a vlog that I filmed in June of this year! I started editing it in June but I lost the motivation to finish. Honestly, I’m not sure that I’ll ever make another vlog! Editing takes a long time. Plus, my life is not very interesting 😅 The video is…

What I’ve been up to – 2021 recap

Linda maestra! (Pretty Teacher!), published 1799, Francisco de Goya It’s been almost a year since I last posted! In my last post, I wrote that the new year wouldn’t be any different from 2020.

5 tips for decluttering before a move

Hello everyone, I hope that you are healthy and safe. My partner and I recently moved into my mom's house, and I've been much happier here than at our old apartment. My family has always been vital to me, and I feel pretty homesick whenever I'm apart from them. I've been much more comfortable in…

My Experience With Aisle Period Underwear

No, I'm not talking about the vintage Polly Pockets that I've been scouring eBay for. I'm talking about Aisle period underwear! They have made my periods much more comfortable and much less anxiety-inducing.…
