College Bridget thought the extent of self care was putting on a face mask or treating herself to materialistic purchases she really didn't need. Granted, these quick fixes are still a large part of my self care routine, but I've realized there's more to improving my emotional and physical state.

I've never been a big fan of birthdays. No scratch that, I've never been a big fan of my birthday. The anticipation and pressure to have it be any different than another day has never made much sense to me (with the exception of a few milestone ages).

For those of you who don't follow me on any social media channel, I now live in the Financial District of Manhattan and  work as the Functional Analyst Intern at Razorfish.

Makeup: More Than Just A Pretty Face

 I've made the transition from using makeup as a tool to hide every single flaw to using it to enhance my features. This has been crucial to my identity and self worth. I've come to realize that no one cares if I leave my house au natural (expect for that one teacher who always tells me I look tired, screw you).
