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.

You hold a special place with me, being the first person I followed, Heather. I’ve checked now and then and saw you had gone, but have kept my eye open. It was good of you to post to your old blog so I’d know where to find you. (By the way, comments are disabled on your first post.) 🙂

I’m using the Reddle theme here on WordPress. It’s took me forever to find one I particularly liked. Which aspects are you referring to?

Oh thank you. All of it really, I have the very basic one at the moment as you can see. No idea how to change it. ☺️?

If you go to “My Sites,” on the toolbar there’s “Themes.” There are hundreds of layouts to choose from. Make sure you check out the free ones. I look at them all the time.
Once you find one you like, hit “Try & Customize.” That’s where you have all the options to change fonts, colors, and add widgets. Widgets are fun to play with.
And they add a bit to your blog.
I’m not an expert. I just play around a lot. Google is honestly my best friend when I don’t know how do to something. I did dabbled in HTML coding in high school. Mostly self taught stuff. I also have a test blog to try out new layouts before I publish it on my actual blog.
Don’t be afraid to play around. WordPress is super user friendly. When all else fails, Google is the man.

Thank you so much ?

If you need help with anything specific, let me know. Again. I’m not an expert. I’ve just been playing with this stuff since high school.

Thank you so much
