Hello, everyone! Welcome to my blog!
My name is Heather Anne. I am a five-foot tall ball of sass and pure silliness who believes in the power words can have on others. My hobbies include writing, experimenting with beauty and fashion, and pretending I’m a competent adult. Life is an adventure, and I plan on making the most of it.
My opinionated voice was founded once I entered high school where I also started writing novels in my spare time. Even my dean of students told me I was an opinionated little thing. Of course, I didn’t disagree. Once college rolled around, I studied towards my Bachelors in English with a concentration in Creative Writing. I also lost my voice and my love of the craft along the way. Battling depression, anxiety, and naysayers kept my voice subdued. I threw my joy of writing on the back burner. So afraid of failing, I gave up on my dreams.
I started blogging back in January of 2014, a month after I graduated college. I wanted to get my voice out there and share my experiences. Especially with mental health. A few months later, I abandoned it. I didn’t have a direction. I didn’t know my passions. It took me two long years to figure that out.
In May of 2016, I decided to dedicate myself once again to writing. And now here we are.
What is my blog about, you ask?
I label myself a lifestyle and beauty blogger, but I’ve never been one to stay in a box. Beauty, lifestyle, and fashion are only one part of who I am. A hobby, as they call it. I also write about anything that tickles my fancy. This includes social issues and mental health. I started blogging to talk about my depression and anxiety. I think it’s only right to follow that, even in a small way. Sharing personal experiences can help others learn about mental illness. It can help destroy the damaging stigma surrounding those suffering.
When do I blog?
I stick to at least twice during the weekdays. Life’s a bit wild, but two posts a week keeps me active and gives me a goal. It also gives me time to do other adult things, like go to my adult job.
If you’re still with me (and I hope you are), I’d be honored if you’d come join me on my journey through this little thing called life.
