Every week, we’re participating in #totalhonestytuesday, sharing the things we’d usually keep off of social media, and giving a little more insight into our real (and very un-perfect) lives. Hopefully, in doing this, we can all feel a little less pressure to appear a certain way online, and remember that everyone around us is much more than just the highlight reel we normally see.

#totalhonestytuesday Damien Rice's Older Chests came on after I had a long conversation with my BFF/therapist/sister @kimcherrysings and I immediately started crying because sometimes that just happens and it's ok because the strings in that song are everything. 🎻 #alwaystimeonmymind

This is my first entry for #totalhonestytuesday hosted by @thefinancialdiet : I broke my glasses today and instead of getting them properly fixed or get new ones, I just glued them together. I'm moving, which means I've had a lot of expenses lately, and would rather wait a few days to get new glasses than spend that extra money. (I did try to "occulus reparo" them 😬)

to-do list // often I wonder if I am coming off as too aggressive, if I'm stepping on too many toes, if I'm asking for too much. without fail, asking myself this question pulls everything sharply back into focus because seriously what would a (straight cis neurotypical etc etc) white man do? and why can't I do that too? 💃🏻 #indignantgram #totalhonestytuesday

for today's #totalhonestytuesday I want to take the time to talk about Bad Ass Women I Know From The Internet and also a little personal finance confession: I pay for everything in cash. when I have a card with money on it, I will swipe and swipe and swipe until I've spent literally all of it. this used to kiiiiind of work when I was in a salary position. I knew where my next paycheck was coming from and when I would be getting it. When I started my fully commission job last year, I wasn't financially prepared. Needless to say, I now have two maxed out credit cards because I wouldn't have been able to start my career without that. I pay the minimum each month and that mostly covers the interest, and that's it, so they stay mostly maxed out. I'm on a repayment plan that will actually work now, but for the last year or so I haven't really put anything on a card – including the things made be the women I actually want to support. I'm making a BIG payment today and am going to use $100 of that to finally support all the women I've cheered on verbally but not monetarily this last year. I'm going to buy @jamievaron's ebook (pictured), and @superlativelylj's, and @meg_fee's (can you believe I designed the cover and then didn't even buy a copy? shame). I'm going to donate to @xobabevibes, and @sarahnicolehunt's classroom. I'm going to stop by @workshop.pdx and pick something up because I love @aspensummit so! All this to say: support the women you love and stay away from credit card debt.

It's #totalhonestytuesday! We shared some raw, real girl talk with #ItGirl @gritandglitterco on Saturday. We confessed that #SpeakingofEverything is a project that started through us sharing the messages that we needed. We post the images and messages that help us focus on our dreams and are so glad that you all seem to enjoy them as well. 😍 #Regram from @ckelso

I have a million of these on my phone but rarely post them, perhaps out of a decade-old fear of being ridiculed from behind a screen. I'll let you in on a little secret: social media is the junior high of the Internet. Post your selfie. Love your selfie. Love yourself. #totalhonestytuesday #umnproud #vscocam

#totalhonestytuesday – appropriate for #mardigras – I spent all of yesterday on the couch "working" while I ate my weight in chocolate and kettle corn (for 8 hours nonstop)…but my food blog sees nothing of that, and only of the delicious, healthy, classy dinner I made tonight. cheers❗️🍷
