NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS

Lifestyle

Dress: Zara // Boots: Small shop in London

Whatsup fam! 🙏🏻

Writing to you from the safety and comfort of my nice warm bed in LA. I legit have the WEAKEST IMMUNE SYSTEM EVER. Your girl is sick again. 😷 But this time I don’t feel so bad because it seems like everyone I know has a cold/flu right now. Runny nose, sore throat, headache nasty ass cough…. you know the drill.

Ok, enough with me disgusting you with my delightful plethora of symptoms. And on with the important stuff. 😁

**Oh one more thing… photo above is obviously not from today. If you want to see a video of me and my grossness head on over to my instagram story for that hot mess.

OK MOVING ON.

NEW YEARS IS IN TWO DAYS!!!!!! 🎉🍸

Must. Heal. Self. ASAP. 😓

The panic is real. Because we have tickets to Dave Chapelle and I do NOT plan on being sick for that. He is hilarious.

While I recover (hopefully) in time for the big night, I have a looooooooot of time to think. Like, way too much time. I hate being sick I get cabin crazy in like 0.00078 seconds.

Like I said, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking. About how 2017 went, and how I would like to see 2018 go.

Total honesty: I’m not a hugeee New Year’s resolutions person, I actually have a 6 month/weekly/daily goal system that I highly prefer. (Will do a full breakdown of that on my podcast soonsies!) It’s just what works for me, and I really think if you give it a try you can get it to work for you as well.

I digress.

New Year’s resolutions.

I do like to take some time and think about what I want for the new year. It IS a great opportunity to reflect, and set your mind to be in the right space for the upcoming year.

I tend to make slightly loftier goals as my New Year’s resolutions because I usually like to focus resolutions on being mindset changes or bigger picture changes.

So, here you have my two 2018 New Year’s Resolutions:

Lead my life with happiness

Oh my god that sounds fruity. Just writing it out is like uhg. Girl. Stop being such a fruity-tootie. It issss true though. For most of my life I have done the things that are expected of me, and what society deems “correct”. Those things are not necessarily what makes me happy. All I want for 2018 is to focus on the things that make me happy. End of story.

Stay the course & be relentless

2017 was a year of big-ass changes for me. For 2018, I really want to zone in and focus on achieving success in the areas I set out to be successful in this past year. No point in making all the changes you ever dreamed of if you don’t follow through.

And that’s pretty much it for me! I really do want both of those things for myself for 2018.

How about you guys? What are your resolutions for 2018? Would love to hear below! 💞

Bonjour!

Currently still in Chicago, but I filmed this Santa Monica vlog the day before my flight so figured miiiiiight as well share this meow. 😸

Anywho, the point of this vlog was to show you a bit more about what my life is like at home in Santa Monica. Given this is just a small snippet of my day, but it was part of my day nonetheless. 😄

Soooooo with that being said, if you want to hang out with me at home and see what some of my days are like, check out this vid! 🎥

If you are not already subscribed to Skinny Belle Youtube, make sure you SUBSCRIBE NOW!

Also if you are still in the festive mood, you should listen to the Holiday Special on Skinny Belle – The Podcast!

In my Holiday Special podast we talk about:

– WTF are you supposed to get your boyfriend who you’ve been only dating a few months?
– How to avoid gaining weight unnecessarily during the holidays
– Work party best practices

Hope everyone is enjoying their Christmas hangover! My body is about 40% cookie, 40% cheese, and 20% wine at this point. Not even mad. 😂 JK I actually wasn’t even that bad this year. Listen to the podcast and I explain how to not go overboard during the holidays. ❤️

xoxoxo,

CHRISTMAS CAME EARLY

Lifestyle

Can you spot the drone?

Whatsup friends!

I really hope I didn’t overly alarm any of you with yesterday’s post. 😅 I just want to keep it real here and I know that birth control and depression are a major issue that so many women go through and nobody talks about it. I mean, if we are ALL experiencing the same thing, why the f is nobody talking about it?! So crazy. Anyways, that is why I am here. 💞

In other news, Christmas came early!!! 🎄

Today my boyfriend and I did our Christmas gift exchange and spent the day together enjoying our gifts. Troy got me a drone (!!!!!!) and I got him the NES Classic Edition & some Trump toilet paper. So he could LITERALLY shit on Trump. 😂😂😂 It is legit toilet paper with Trump’s face on it. I honestly think it’s a better gift than the nintendo gaming unit that I got into a savage bidding war on ebay for. The NES Classic Edition is MAJORLY sold out everywhere (duh) and I had to go to secondary markets to get it. I am pretty sure I was in a bidding war with 12 year olds, but you know how it is with Nintendo. Gotta do what you gotta do.

K so back to my drone. I am BEYOND EXCITED to be the new owner of a drone. When the robots take over, I will obviously be first in line because I have been working with mini-robos (like drones) for ages. So the photo above is me test flying my drone. This was after I crashed it into the bushes, and sent Troy into the wilderness to find it. Of course.

I am currently in the midst of editing a ganggggster vlog🎥 from the other day at home. Still learning how to actually edit videos, so it takes me longer than I would like to publish vlogs but I am getting quicker!!!  🙂 Slowly but surely. 😜

Point being, I am going to integrate some drone footage into my upcoming vlogs as well. Super excited. It will be great.

Anyways, Uber Eats has arrived with the obscene amount of food we ordered (ramen + about 10 side dishes we defs didn’t need to order), so Ima go eat that and then continue to play with my new drone and fight over the Nintendo with Troy.

#Adulting.

Love you guys. Thanks for accepting me for who I am. I know there’s a lot of facets to me, but, that’s just me being me.

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Happy-almost-end-of-2017. This year has been a shit show, and I have SO MUCH to say about it. But that’s coming soon in a podcast. For now, ta-ta! 😘

REAL TALK

Lifestyle

Well, things got realllllly real on Skinny Belle – The Podcast today 😐

Alright guys, I went there. I talked about the thing you are not supposed to talk about.

Today I recorded a podcast where I share my recent struggles with some seriously negative side effects of birth control, namely: depression and severe emotional volatility.

 

 

If you are a woman and you take birth control, chances are you have also experienced some negative side effects as well. Which is exactly why I wanted to share what I have been going through lately with a new birth control I’m taking. My hopes are that anyone reading this or listening to Skinny Belle – The Podcast can feel less alone, because feeling depressed can be an isolating experience. No matter what the cause.

I really got into it in this episode. I also accidentally cried. 😅 Definitely did not plan on doing that, but it’s kind of where I’m at right now with all this hormonal madness going on in my body.

FUN TIMES, AMIRITE? 😩

There is really no advice in this podcast, it’s more just letting you guys know where I’m at. I haven’t solved the hormonal issue yet, but I am soon going home where I will see my family doctor and do just that.

For now…. 😬😬😬🔥😩 😤 😡

Hahahaha. Haha. Hahahahha. I’m insane. Really. Birth control is the worst. You know how it is. Listen to the podcast and you will get the gist of my situation.

Love you guys, and if you have ever experienced something like this (which like 99.999999% of women have) then slide on into my dms and let me know. There’s no reason we shouldn’t be allowed to talk about this, considering the fact that we all go through it. So ridic.

So let’s break the silence! Really really hope this podcast helps at least one person feel like they aren’t alone. That will make crying on the internet worth it. ❤️

Ok off to eat a massive bowl of pasta cuz I luv myself. And it’s the holidays. 🎄
