Finally, everything is coming up Catie! If that doesn't make any sense, it's a Simpsons reference. Millhouse said something similar once. Anyway, things are starting to go very well for me.

After nearly a year of foot problems, my feet are finally starting to feel better. I've completely cut coffee out of my life (sigh) because it causes inflammation and I'm seeing an acupuncturist. After trying everything else, I didn't think it would work. I was wrong! Acupuncture is magic!! I have my second appointment tomorrow, which I'm hoping will go well. You see, I'm pretty terrified of needles. Like get-up-and-run-out-of-the-dentists-office terrified. My aunt, who works at the acupuncturist's office, didn't think I would actually come in for it, but I did! Christie, if you're reading this, thanks for telling her I blacked out when I got my ears pierced!

I don't know if I'll ever be able to wear heels again, but I am so, so thankful to just be pain free. It's nice to have a little break from that whole ordeal.

On top of improvements in health, I've been approached for more features and a collaboration; two things that are always welcome! And I have all you lovely readers :) It feels good to be a part of this community.

A little shout-out to my Uncle Paul and Aunt Anita who made my latest Forever21 shopping spree a possibility :)

You are lovely! This outfit is adorable. I recently tried to cut coffee out of my life and... well... it didn't work out unfortunately. I wound up with horrible migraines and just went back to it :( Good luck! Have a great weekend!

Catie--It's great to hear that the feet are better. I had acupuncture many years ago for a "bad habit." It did work temporarily for me.

The jacket is a great addition to your wardrobe.

So do you know Robyn the Swedish pop sensation? There are elements of your style and hair totally reminds me of her. It's a compliment -- she's fabulous!
