My name is Adrienne. I am a Cali girl at heart with a punk rock soul and a passion for reading, music, makeup, and wild hair. I enjoy going to concerts and music festivals, playing video games, and watching movies, and I cannot live without books, but since I started my weightloss/fitness/healthy lifestyle journey a year ago, I also can’t live without exercise! I have gone from a clarinet major to a Medical Laboratory Technician to a “Stay at Home Housewife”/Book Blogger to a lifestyle blogger/fitness enthusiast.
I’ve always had a passion for reading. A good book can transport you to another world. It can be an escape from reality, or a way to relate to something or someone when it seems impossible in real life. “Books were a safe place, a world apart from my own,” (Kiera Cass, The Siren).
As a child, I remember staying up late reading Goosebumps. Since then I have had a love for all things horror. I remember going on adventures with Nancy Drew, and relating to Stacey from The Babysitter’s Club because she was the only other diabetic I knew of at the time.
I started this blog over 2 years ago when I finally had the time to pursue my passion for reading. When my husband and I moved to Arizona for his career, we made the decision that I would be a housewife to work on my health and Type 1 Diabetes. But, for the first year and a half I pursued my reading passion and became a bookblogger/ bookstagrammer. I don’t regret it. I made some amazing friends and have read A LOT of great books, but, now it’s time to change things up a bit.
You’ll notice more changes on my blog. More posts about makeup, lifestyle, my weight loss journey, the NuSkin products I sell as an Independent Distributor, and promotion of clothing and products I love, including affiliate links where I make a small percentage of commission based on your purchases. I decided that I wanted to blog about more than just books, and I decided to try to make a little extra money while blogging about my passions, because, let’s face it, being healthy isn’t cheap. I honestly think we spend more in groceries with eating healthier, and, workout videos and equipment are expensive!
So, I am proud to make these changes to my blog, and my life. Blogging makes me happy. Exercise and taking care of my body makes me happy. Reading makes me happy. Makeup, Beautiful Disaster Clothing, and NuSkin make me happy, and I would love to keep spreading that happiness to you all! ❤
