Why do I Blog? This is my 100th Post!!!

Hey loves!

I was twerking and hair flipping’ in my living room when I realized that this next post would be my 100th!


I’ve never stuck to anything this long, because I tend to get bored of things quickly or get too “busy” to care!

Now blogging has been completely different. The more that I do it, the more I love it.

I’ve had some of you stick with me through out this journey, so I consider you my loyal confidants. Therefore, I want to share with you why I blog!


I started my blog when I was at a pretty low point in my life. I’d forgotten how down I was until I read this post HERE.

So many things were going wrong in my life, and I felt as if I had zero control. I used to cry almost every single day, and go out drinking quite a few times a week to mask my disappointment in myself. (Oh and not like in an alchy kind of way, more like I had nothing better to do with my time…)

What made this time in my life even more difficult for me is that I’ve always been a “happy” and “positive” person despite the adversities life has thrown my way.

In that moment, I was terrified of turning into this new, unrecognizable me for good. But no matter how much I tried, I just couldn’t get it together.

Finally one day, I decided to turn things around and snapped myself back into shape!

I had to!

My epiphany was extensive of many thoughts but the most important one of them was that:

No matter what, I am in control of my life!

I was so excited about my new found mentality and the goodness that trickled in from it, that I wanted to share it with the world!!!

The first step towards declaring control was creating this, my blog! A place for positivity but that was also real! (I don’t sugar coat, boo boo.)

But how would it all come together?

It’s been a journey towards finding what exactly this platform “should” be, but its slowly turned into a spot for moral support!

Where inspirational stories, style + beauty tips and tricks, as well as random tidbits are shared! To hopefully motivate you and push you to be your best self in your everyday life as you relentlessly pursue your dreams!!!  All written/ filmed with a big ol’ stir of Zay humor of course. Cus y’all know I love to crack jokes. 🙂

Point of the story:

Everyone goes through adveristiy. Everyone has hardships. Some internal, some external, but they are there. But how will you deal with it all? How will you find a way to win? Cus guess what! The harder the struggle, the better the come up! and You’ve got THIS because the world is your oyster!

Thank you so much to anyone who has taken even one look into this blog. It means more than you know, and please feel free to always leave your feedback!

I thought this was about me, but I’ve realized it is about YOU!

And I wouldn’t have it any other way.

YOU give THIS BLOG and ME life!
