Feeling Anxious

One of the things I like most about Trendy Edgy Chic is that it feels a bit like a diary for me. Someplace I can stick my thoughts and just put them out into the world. I always feel better after I do.

Today I am feeling anxious. And frustrated. You see, I have no idea why I’m feeling anxious. There is no reason for it. And that makes me feel like there is something wrong with me. I can’t do anything to fix it because these feelings don’t really have a cause. 

It’s natural to get a bit worked up over a test or a project or just something. But nothing? Yea, that’s not normal. And I’m not really used to the feeling either.

As I am writing this, I’m wondering what I can do to make myself feel better. When I am anxious about a thing, having an identifiable cause makes me feel better. I can do something about that. I don’t really know how to make feeling this way over nothing disappear though. Should I go work out? Just get out of the house? Take a brief walk? Call a friend for distraction? I. Don’t. Know.

So my question to you, lovely reader, is what do I do? Have you dealt with this before? If so how? 

I am in need of some help.


PS: The answer for me ended up being writing. Creating this post and a few that you’ll see next week had a very calming effect and just made me feel so much better.

Express and Kohl's Clothing Haul

I've done a little shopping recently! This is a pretty small haul with just a few things from Express and Kohls, but I am absolutely in love with them!

Do the muscle tees make you want to go to the gym too? They might be my favorite part of this haul just because they're so cute.

Items shown:

Express Mixes Texture Zip Front Tee (Olive Green and Warm Stone)
Kohl's Muscles and Mascara Tee
Kohl's I Don't Sweat I Sparkle Muscle Tee

How to Cover Up Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation sucks. It's one of those things that takes forever to go away and can just destroy your confidence. I've had hyper pigmentation for about the last year thanks to some crazy hormone issues and it's finally basically gone! Before all of those dark spots completely fade though, I want to share how I cover hyperpigmentation since foundation and concealer alone are hardly ever enough to do the job. Check out my video below to see my process!

Candle Collection

I love candles! I don't even understand people who only have one or two in their homes because I've had my own candle collection since about middle school. It actually used to make my mom nervous because she was scared I'd burn the house down one day. Don't worry, I didn't! I did, however, have an incident burning my own hair. Yep - as unpleasant as it sounds.

Anyway, if you're curious here is a peak into my candle collection:
