I'm so glad you're here!
Nice to meet you! I’m Kristen, but all my friends (which you now are!) call me Stubbe (my last name + forever nickname). I’m a master Spotify playlist maker, lover of all things Marvel-related and an earring & piercing enthusiast. I’ve lived in Texas my entire life, but would love to move to California one day. I love vanilla lattes and seasonally flavored items like peppermint and pumpkin. You can find me at a coffee shop 98% of the time. I'm always thinking of what part of my ear I can get pierced next. I’m a big fan of gold hoop earrings, neutral-colored nails, and black jeans. I love dressing up for my corporate day job, but also love rocking leggings after office hours.
I had always wanted to start a blog, but I’m really good at procrastinating and even better at starting things that I don’t end up finishing. When I went from engaged to single during the summer of 2018, I took that as a sign that it was time to get serious and start achieving all my life goals. So here I am, diving in and showing my most vulnerable self to the world.
My initial idea for a blog was mainly just about style & beauty, but what I discovered is that I love writing about my personal life & struggles and turning it all into takeaways. I’ll be the first to say that I’m not perfect and that I’ve made a ton of mistakes in life, but they’ve all made me the woman I am today and I wouldn’t change this girl for the world. I’ve seen and dealt with a lot of “ish” in my time on this earth, so why not write about my experiences and hopefully inspire some people in the process? I strive to be inspirational, motivational, and relatable.
I hope you enjoy my content and photos and can relate in some form or fashion!
