Matthew KaneIt’s not all rose petals and kisses that make your foot pop. It’s not all hallelujah choruses and adoring gazes that never end. It’s not at all like society has told us what real love looks like. It’s so much better than that. Because the ‘fairytale’ of love is not real. It’s just a…

via I’m Not A Bitch Just Because I Like The Way I Look — Thought Catalog


Twenty20 / @kirillvasilevcom If I’m being completely upfront, most of the time I consider myself attractive. Maybe hot in a specific way. In a muted way. In my way. I don’t have big boobs and my hair isn’t blonde. My skin is freckled and far, faaaar from perfect. I’m not sure I even know how…

No matter your attempts to make everything fall according to plan, and despite the meticulous, step-by-step path you create for yourself, sometimes you’re going to slip. Sometimes you’re…

10 Signs She’s A Lady And Not Just A Girl


JamesMSama.com

If this is your first time being exposed to my writing, I feel the need to preface this article by saying that probably 80-90% of my blog posts are focused on men and how we, as a gender, can be/do/act better in life and in love. So, save the ‘sexist’ or ‘woman-bashing’ comments please – that is the polar opposite of what JamesMSama.com is about.

Since, though, there has been such a frequency of those types of articles lately, I wanted to turn the tables a bit and discuss the woman of today. The woman who wants the gentleman. The woman who wants to be shown by the right man that we are not all the same. The woman who wants to hold herself to higher standards and be an equal teammate to the man in her life.

The Lipstick Diaries

Sometimes life makes no sense… but sometimes it makes all the sense in the world. Life’s funny like that. Most of my life has consisted of things that are “Riley.” Things that I would have considered the things that made me who I am. Is that true? Absolutely. But those things simply helped shape me… they weren’t me.

Over the past three months, I’ve been traveling on a journey that’s unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before. Going to go ahead and address the elephant in the room here. Recently, I lost one huge aspect of my life- ballet. My life was flipped upside down when my every day schedule of 16 years completely changed. At first, it seemed like the end of the world (and believe me, some days it still does.) I’m not going to into any details here, but sometimes God reveals His plan for your life in…
