Take a Social Media Break With Me!


Gasp! Say what? Jae stop playing with me! I know, it sounds crazy right? I mean, if you must be technical, I'm not 110% unplugged because I'm writing this blog. 😝 I have stayed away from Facebook and Instagram for a couple days now, and I must say, I feel fantastic!

Of course I get a little curious when I get super bored, but for the most part, they have both been off limits! Social Media changes you, no matter what you think, it does. I didn't like the mental state I was falling into by being so tuned into Social Media almost every waking moment.



You shouldn't be that plugged in, it's really not healthy. I know it may sound crazy coming from me who wants nothing more than to have a nice, thriving career in Social Media and Blogging, but you have to know when to take a break.

One of the biggest benefits I am happy with taking the much needed break is that my writing is thriving. I'm currently churning out book 4 in my zombie series and I couldn't be happier. I still don't outline, but I am making it work for me. There's a method to my madness. Ok, not really, but my writing workflow is a lot better.



Do you take regular breaks from Social Media? Do you schedule a certain time of day, or do you plan an extended break from Social Media? How do you unplug?

Holy crap, Batman! I survived Mental Health Awareness Month, and I have no idea how I kept pushing myself. I skipped lunch today to save the extra coins. Yes, you read that right. A co-worker had a snarky remark about it, but guess what? IDGAF! I have goals in my mind, and I'm keeping my eye on the prize. Summer 2018 is mine, and I can only hope that things are finally falling into place. Besides, it's not like I didn't eat anything. I just didn't order out. I saved my money. Call me cheap.


I don't know what the rest of the Summer holds for me, but I know I'm going places and making progress. It has been slow going, and I have been tried, tempted, and failed so many times. I don't know where …

32 on the Nautical Mile

I recently celebrated my 32nd birthday, and it was quite a nice day. I finally got to wear this dress that I purchased last year! I got a little too tipsy, and couldn't even drink the 2nd round I ordered. I was a little disappointed with Nautical Mile. Being from FL, when I think "Water front dining" I think Beach front, and this wasn't the case. I still enjoyed the area. I'm bummed I was too tipsy to explore, but to be honest, there wasn't very much to see as far as sightseeing.





Getting ready? I always keep it kinda simple. I'm no make-up guru by any means. I just like to hide my hyper pigmentation and have bold lips. I don't even wear mascara because it irritates my eyes. I also throw in the towel when it comes to pink lipsticks! It just doesn't agree with my complexion what-so-ever. The red looks much better. Both mattes were by Black Radiance.





I love being out in Long Island because it reminds me a lot of being home. There are actual parking …
