My name is Hannah and I’m from Sunny California. I currently reside just outside of San Francisco with my fiance John and our two dogs, Rylee and Bella. I started this blog because I wanted to see more people like me out there, representing brands and bringing awareness to the struggles that women go through every single day. For as long as I can remember, the ideal woman was thin, had perfect skin, always dressed beautifully, had an incredible job, and her hair was ALWAYS perfect. I didn’t see myself in these women. I had a curvy body, issues with my mental health at times, and I could never figure out what to do with my hair. Suddenly, there were reports of young girls falling into deep depressions or even attempting suicide because they couldn’t live up to these impossible standards.
Something had to change.
So I started an Instagram page, and my blog followed. My goal was never to be ‘perfect,’ but to be vulnerable, and show my followers, or friends as I call them, that everyone is worthy no matter what. Social media is not an accurate representation of reality, and if I can do ANYTHING with this platform, I want to be real and be a voice for everyone who thinks they don’t have one.
On that note, welcome to my page. I’m thrilled to have you here and I hope you always feel welcome and at-home. I want to talk to all of you and learn about your lives! I figured I would share a bit about me so you can get to know me, but please email me, DM me, hell, even send me a letter. Let’s talk!

“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.”
“Travel does what good novelists also do to the life of everyday, placing it like a picture in a frame or a gem in its setting, so that the intrinsic qualities are made more clear. Travel does this with the very stuff that everyday life is made of, giving to it the sharp contour and meaning of art.”

“Who will you love if not yourself? Other people? How can you love someone for anything but their raw, naked humanity? How can you say you love someone if it is not for their flaws and quirks, snorts and hurts, triggers and tears? Anything else is not love. It is idealization. And, as long as you do it to yourself, you will do it to everyone. You will not love anyone or anything until those eyes in the mirror soften up and embrace the beauty that is already within.”
