When I’m casual, I’m real casual. I would dress like this everyday if I could. I love being in sweatpants, big sweatshirts and nikes. That is most definitely my happy place. I just wish I could show up to the office in sweats and a hoodie 🙌🏻 📷 @heavencitizen


If you think a successful life is a perfect life, consider instead the idea that perfectionism can actually lead you away from the very same success you're after. - Peter Economy. ⠀⠀ Let that sink in for a while. I know I will. 📷 @heavencitizen


Growing up, I said I would study journalism and one day work @etcanada. I watched it every night with my mom and imagined being on the red carpet interviewing the stars. Looking back on that now, I think that became a little part of why I started my own blog and my chai chat series. Although a much much more smaller scale — in a way, I feel like I’m somewhat living out my childhood dream. DM if you would like to be featured! 📷: @heavencitizen


I’m not sure why or how its come to this, but my entire wardrobe basically consists of ALL black clothing. I really need to work on adding more colour... 📷: @heavencitizen


The trick in life is learning how to deal with it. - Helen Mirren ⠀⠀ And sometimes that means escaping to a cafe for a cup of coffee accompanied by your cell phone. 📷: @heavencitizen


Memories take us back and dreams bring us forward 💫 ⠀⠀ Happy New Year everyone! I hope you welcomed 2019 with the ones that make you the most happy! Here’s to a fresh start and endless amount of opportunities and new experiences! 📷: @heavencitizen


They laugh at me because I'm different; I laugh at them because they're all the same. ⠀⠀ No matter how different or how out of place you feel, know that you always belong. Different is cool. Different is unique. It’s something (as a half Indian and Italian girl) that I’ve had to continuously remind myself of. 💜 📷 @michellemurrayportrait


You’ve probably realized by now that I’m always wearing lipstick. Funny thing is that while I was growing up I was constantly made fun of for the size of my lips. Kids would always say that it looked like I got punched in the mouth and they often wondered why my bottom lip was so big. ⠀⠀ Being so young I didn’t have the answers. All I knew is that I would be so upset when they would make those comments. I didn’t understand why they would say those things or how to make them stop. I became so self conscious. If I only knew then what I know now... ⠀⠀ Now lipstick has become a staple in my everyday makeup routine. I totally realize I’m talking about lipstick but don’t underestimate the power of it and how complete it can make you feel! 📷 @michellemurrayportrait


This photo was taken before my wedding during a creative photo shoot with @michellemurrayportrait. Posing in front of a camera isn’t exactly the easiest thing to do in the world. You really have to get outside of your comfort zone and push yourself to capture that one moment. Or at least that’s what I have to do! ⠀⠀ - - - - - I love taking pictures and creating content to share here on my Instagram and blog, however I didn’t start my blog just so I could take pictures of myself. I started my blog in hopes to connect with like minded women. I hope to make someone out there feel less alone knowing that someone like me may be going through the same thing they are. I plan to share more of my story and connect with more of you along the way. Thanks for sticking around and supporting me 💜


Of course I would pose for a pic after adding my gum to the wall! #gumwall


All I need is a cup of coffee, a pair of Nike’s, some shades and I’m good to go! #seattle


There is something so disgusting yet interesting about Seattle’s gum wall! I insisted that we check it out and was way too excited to add my gum amongst the others. Who else has gone and what did you think?! #gumwallseattle


“In my life, I have given a fu*k about many people and many things. I have also not given a fu*k about many people and many things. And like the road not taken, it was the fu*ks not given that made all the difference. - - Mark Manson, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life.

I get why they call it a power suit 👊🏻
