Badass girlbosses I follow and you should too

If you are looking to find some inspiring women to follow on Instagram, YouTube or blogs: look no further! Here are some ladies who are kicking butts and taking names. They always inspire me with their awesome, positive content and make me wanna go out and slay my goals! Here are the girlbosses I follow, and you should too!

  • Jen Sincero: The lady who I love getting my butt kicked by! I have written a little bit before about how obsessed I am with her book You Are a Badass. Like I’ve listened to it probably 7-8 times now, so…kind of obsessed! I haven’t come across anything else as motivating in my life so far, it has been super influential to me. Anytime I need a kick in the bum to get going, get motivated and stay positive that I can make big and awesome things happen in life I start listening to it again and get super pumped up! It was also the first audiobook I listened to on Audible, and so far nothing else I’ve listened to after has topped how much I enjoyed that one.

How I cleared my acne and improved my acne scars!

Ever since I was 14, I have struggled with acne. I thought it was really bad back then, as a self-conscious teenager and young adult but when I turned about 24 it turned into a different kind of acne, adult acne. This was the kind that was cystic, deeply painful and the worse part was it left behind absolutely horrible scars. It was very debilitating and I really struggled with it. It has been quite the journey to figure all this out, and I am so happy that I finally see some light at the end of the tunnel!

Something I always swore I would do if I could ever find the elusive secret to clearing my highly problematic and acne-prone skin, is pass that info on to the rest of the world in case it could help even one person out there who is as desperate as I was for years and years to clear my skin up! Also, my biggest frustration when I was desperate for help with my acne and researching ways to help it online was that so many links I clicked on promising the cure were either scammy or an e-book that costs money. I feel like this info should be easily accessible for anyone who is desperate for help, and not some top secret you can only find out when you spend money on some book that may or may not help you.

Things we learned buying our first home

My husband and I recently bought our very first home! And let me tell you, it feels like a really big deal! We have been married for 11 years now and have rented apartments the whole time. Of course, a lot of them have been very nice, and we have been very thankful for them. But there is just something about living in a house that is actually YOURS. Where you can do whatever you want to it! (within a realistic budget of course!) I have been excited for this moment for literally my entire life. I always looked forward to the day where I could have a house where there were no limitations, and I could make it look exactly how I wanted. It feels amazing to have finally made that dream come true!

That being said, there were things throughout the whole process that were a bit unexpected and we had to adjust our expectations several times throughout it. Since I am obsessed with all things Househunters and Realtor.com and I are basically besties, I assumed I knew most of what went into buying a house. But as it turns out, there were still a few things I didn’t know I didn’t know! And now I’m here to share those things with you…so YOU will know! 🙂

Here goes: The things we learned buying our first home!
