i love my mom, i really do

I never truly knew who my mom was until my grandpa died. I never knew how much I needed her, how much I loved her, or how much she truly supported me until we both had to walk a path of grieving together.  My mom has always been a friend of mine. She was a…

abbey kay & boohoo with soap & glory

A box from Boohoo that’s filled with Soap & Glory products. That sounds like a dream. (Except it isn’t!). Treating yourself sounds like a dream too, but it doesn’t have to cost you a whole lot of time or money like the majority of us think it does. That’s why I’ve teamed up with the two brands to share…

abbey kay & panty drop

There seems to be less & less time in our 24 hour days, especially in mine. Between balancing a job, a blog, a photography business, family, friends, a boyfriend, & hitting up all the local coffee shops, I’ve learned that convenience is this busy girl’s best friend. If there’s an easier way to do something…

What I want to remember in the year 2017 

It’s two thirds of the way through January & I’m just now getting around to writing my first post of the year. Life’s just been busy lately, & I feel like I haven’t stopped saying that in such a long time. I wanted to start 2017 out on top of blogging & writing & being…

24 good & bad things that happened in 2016

  I normally write a birthday post (which I didn’t) & I usually write an end of the year one too (which I should have done sooner). But this year has been different for me, so this year you’re going to get both in one. The year 2016 was one of a lot of growth for…

monday morning encouragement: life lately 

Life lately has been different. It’s been a whole lot of plain.. As someone who thrives & grows on creativity & inspiration, I’m in a spot where I feel like I’m receiving none. I don’t do the things I love to do. I don’t create what I feel I was born to create. I don’t…

a letter to my pa

Dear Pa, It’s been a year now since you passed away.  A year go yesterday you were still alive, but a year ago today you were not. I can easily say that this has been the hardest year of my life that I have had to live so far. I tried to write about the…

abbey kay & a night at the reno instagrammys

Instagram started a few years back as a simple photo sharing app. I downloaded it a little over five years ago towards the end of high school & it was fun to have a space dedicated to post whatever picture & caption you wanted. Nowadays Instagram is used worldwide by people to share their lives,…
