Hey guys! I really apologize for posting so sporadically lately, a lot has been going on and it’s been pretty hectic. School also started back up- senior year woohoo – and I’m squeezing in as many classes as I can to graduate in June! Thank you to everyone whose been returning to Simply every week, I promise there will be new content very soon!

I also moved into a new apartment earlier this month,

so that took up a lot of my time too BUT don’t think I forgot about you all! I have a couple great collabs that are scheduled to go live within the next couple of weeks and I am super excited about them. I don’t want to give away any details but I’m super stoked about this one collab in particular. It has to do with your health and I’m so excited because I definitely want to start incorporating more health and holistic care into my blog… it’s something I’m extremely passionate about and I definitely don’t express it as much as I would like!

There’s also been a lot, and I mean a lot going on in my head. I wrote a blog sometime last year about how I was going through a lot of anxiety and panic attacks, which eventually resulted in a 4 day sleepover in the hospital. Well, out of no where, the anxiety had just recently returned and I can’t place my finger as to why I’ve been feeling this way… it gives me a headache even trying to think about it!

What I can say is that I have been feeling extremely trapped and separated from the life I see myself living, and I think I need a long break from the city. I won’t get into too much detail because just thinking about it makes my heart race. All I really want to do is just reconnect and be surrounded with nature and its energies, like to disappear on an island for a while…


Don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere (yet)… I hate the fact that school is the one thing holding me back from fulfilling these wants and needs but I know there’s a time for everything and I will get to live that simple life that I’m striving to achieve!

Thankfully, I’m planning a three week trip to Thailand in December and hanging out on islands that look like this…

So that’s definitely something to look forward to in a few months. I also bought a couple of books to hopefully calm my mind, Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer and Ishmael by Daniel Quinn. I’ll probably do a little book review on them too 🙂 STAY TUNED! xoxo
