As a girl who loves everything sweet and lovely, there is no surprise that I'm addicted to three main things in life: ice cream, fantasy fiction, and my adorable dogs. Growing up in the mountains, I have a natural love for the outdoors and a travel lust that can't be quenched (well it can but only because I have to save up money in between)! When I'm not busy exploring the wilderness or reading my next favorite book, you'll find me diving into video game worlds such as Final Fantasy and Legend of Zelda- exploring their vast worlds and obsession over my favorite characters :)

We look back on the past and laugh at their foolishness, but it makes you wonder what practices people in the next generations mock us for. Starving for the camera? Dehydrating ourselves to make our muscles look cut? Cosmetic surgery? I think about this a lot.
