My Relationship Advice

Hello Beautiful Humans,

Today, I wanted to touch on a subject I have been personally asked about a lot, which is my relationship. I’m definitely no expert when it comes to love, I don’t think anyone is though. I only want to share my perspective because unlike the typical young college girl, I have a different take on how to run my relationship.

A few of my friends have asked me for advice lately and I’ve decided to just share my thoughts on some relationship specifics. Read more

Why I Created Pretty, Young & Motivated

Hello Cuties,

Welcome to the new PYM! I decided it was time for a revamp of the look, which inspired me to share my reasoning behind this blog.

Whether you’re a new friend or an old one, you may not really know why I write this blog every week. I don’t make any money, I’m not Insta famous and honestly, I don’t have some overly exciting life. So why?

Well, there are a few factors that inspired me to start a blog in the first place. However, it has grown in many different ways since I first started back in October 2015. Writing has always been a way for me to release my thoughts and express myself. I’ve always been a slightly anxious person, and sometimes my mind gets a little crazy with overthinking. Writing helps me lay it all out and really visualize my feelings.

Hello Babes,

I’m so excited to share this post with all of you. This post is in collaboration with my work, LA Miller Boutique.

LA Miller has so many cute styles, especially their layering pieces. I chose two jackets from our store to style with a basic top I already owned. I also paired one of my jackets with it too, just to show you versatility with basics. Read more

Why I Started Practicing Yoga

 Hello Beautiful Souls,

Yoga is a practice of the mind and body, it is all about bringing awareness to the present moment through breath and movement. Yoga actually means “connection”. Many people do yoga for various reasons, some for exercise and others for mental health. I recently picked up the practice to help combat and build a relationship with my anxiety. I’ve tried a few yoga classes prior to officially joining and committing to the practice.

After bringing the practice into my everyday life, I have realized it is so much more than just an exercise or breathing. Many people believe you have to be flexible or super fit to be “good” at yoga. If you’re one of those people, you’ve got it all wrong. If you think yoga is all about being “good”, then you’re in it for the wrong reasons. Read more
