It has been a whole two years since I began sharing with you all on ScaleitSimple. Hooray! To sum up my current thoughts on my blogging skills I would say I kind of feel like a toddler.

Regardless, of my mixed feelings, I have learned a lot over the past couple of years, and although I have a long way to go I wanted to share the lessons I have learned…

Everything you Need to Know about Self love vs Selfishness

Whenever I read the comments on my self-love posts I am always left a little surprised by the number of people who feel that self-love is not for them. There are many different reasons for this, but a common excuse is they don’t want to be selfish. So many people (moms in particular) feel guilty about taking time for themselves because they are convinced somehow that showing themselves love will take away from others in their lives. Those same people are often the ones who share stories of how stressed and exhausted they are. They are…

Why I Stopped Taking Birth Control and Switched to Natural Beauty Products

There have been many changes in my lifestyle lately. Nothing major or extreme. Let’s just say I have been waking up.

I am growing. Like it or not I guess. One of the biggest changes in my life has been my personal choice to switch to natural, vegan and cruelty-free products. It didn’t happen overnight and I…

Dear Planet, I’m sorry we don’t give a Fuck

Dear Planet, I’m sorry we don’t give a fuck… Love Steph aka Destroyer of the world Guys I am freaking out just a little. OK, deep breath.  Allow me to explain like a normalish person.
