Something I’m going to start doing monthly is reviewing my Boxycharm box! I’ve been subscribed to this box since about May, so I might as well review the contents each month and spill the tea on the products one might encounter if they purchase a Boxycharm subscription (the value is seriously insane). For those of you who are unfamiliar, Boxycharm is a monthly subscription service … Continue reading Review: December Boxycharm
It’s been over two weeks now… and I still can’t get over it. I don’t even know WHERE to begin; I just knew I wanted to write this. I guess I’ll start with proclaiming my undying love for Frank. His stage name is Hobo Johnson and contradictory to what you might assume, he is in fact *not* a hobo… anymore. Well, he was wearing the … Continue reading My Second Time Seeing Hobo Johnson in Concert
I told you guys last month to get ready for new content. It’s time. I’m starting a new section of my blog (along with probably others to come in the future) devoted to my faith.

Dear current self, I have been avoiding writing this letter (even though I’ve been meaning to get around to it) simply because it’s going to be a tough one. It’s not easy to talk to yourself in this way. It takes a certain amount of intense introspection that, frankly, knowing how I am, not only terrifies and intimidates me, but exhausts me as well. And … Continue reading Letter to My Current Self
To a younger Jess… To the Jess who thought she was not beautiful. To the Jess who was absolutely convinced she would never find love. To the Jess who dreamed endlessly and dangerously. This is to you. You’re not ugly. I know middle school is filled with insecurities and negative opinions of your physical appearance. I know that you are beyond convinced that you are nowhere … Continue reading Letter to My Younger Self
