Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in my growing up process, travel, style, fitness, health, and food. I'm just here to share my fun in this world and how growing up is one big learning curve. Hope you have a nice stay!

I have no idea what i'm doing, I guess this is growing up?

So I have been trying to start my blog for well over a year now and let me just say it's tough! I think I finally have enough motivation to truly put it all together now, so here goes nothing! 

I wanted this blog to be my personal creative outlet that replaces the once journal I used to write in all the time. A place I can share my new obsessions, thoughts, adventures, and my own life lessons/experiences.  My theme is based off "growing up" because let me just say it's been one heck of a ride! I'm sure everyone can relate that #adulting is not that easy.  As I approach the looming age of 25 (yay I can finally rent a car for cheap guys) I thought this was as good of a time as any to begin. I mean I have a quarter of a lifetime under my belt already...so I totally know what i'm doing ;) jk but it's been real and I have learned a lot about myself. 

Honestly I wanted to start this journey because of the blogging communities i've come across. I've discovered so many different personalities on the world wide web, but all are so inspirational. I think it's amazing that we live in a world where a complete stranger can build an entire platform that makes you feel connected in a safe space of like minded individuals. I've learned a lot from food bloggers on how to cook (because I really can't), from fashion bloggers on trend pieces and how to make your style make you feel your best + hair/make-up inspo, science-y stuff from nutrition practitioners who started food & fitness blogs, and more! If I can build a community and a safe space for anyone through this adventure that'd be a blessing, but for now it's honestly just something fun for me and I hope you enjoy reading along. 

Currently, I am FINALLY feeling quite settled in the Bay area since last February when I moved out here. It's been so much fun exploring San Francisco, meeting new people, and just finding my niche. Moving to a new city really teaches you how to get out of your comfort zone a little, because you just have to if you want to get anywhere. So as this blogging journey continues you'll hear more about my adventures out here and the amazing people I call friends as well. So cheers! Here it goes... growing up with Shay :)
