Welcome to PrettyRx! I am so glad you are here! Take a look around—there is going to be so much more as we grow together!
PrettyRx (I say it “pretty, are, ex” not “pretty, prescription”) is a lifestyle blog for real life women. A few months ago I walked out of a boutique with one of my girlfriends and said, “That is what I want to do!” I may have meant that I wanted to own a boutique, but what that moment of realization has turned into is…This! This is a blog about style, beauty, relationships, feelings, being twenty-something, and being a woman. Every Monday and Tuesday I will talk a little bit about what it is like to be a real girl (well, a girl like me) in the real world (I mean, the version of the world I live in), and then on Wednesdays, We Wear Pink!
I recently turned 25 and felt like something had to change. For too long I had given in to depression and allowed anxieties to dictate what I do and don’t do. I could never get on board with the life I felt like I was supposed to be living—to be honest I couldn’t really even figure out what that was. I felt so much pressure to be “good” and make money and live up to something that I couldn’t define. My future was overwhelming, my past a sensitive subject, and in the present I just fell in between crazy and okay—not enough of either one to have a good excuse. Walking out of that boutique it hit me suddenly that I was passionate about something, I just always felt it too superficial to make a life out of. I care about style, I am a shopper and a writer, and I looooove pretty things. PrettyRx is the place where I get to bring all of that out, and where I will turn my issues into my success.
Here’s the deal, I know there are other girls out there who care about pretty things, but feel like empty shells of people. I know there are other girls out there who cannot manage simple interactions without having irrational physical and emotional responses, but who want to look damn good during that panic attack. I know there are lots of girls out there who love the phrase, “on Wednesdays we wear pink.” I am one of you! PrettyRx gives me something to be good at. It provides me a place to write, to share some of my crazy, to talk about the things I am already thinking about and Pinteresting. And hopefully to find some friends who understand how I feel about life so that we can all feel that way together, and laugh about it! I am tired of hiding, of waiting for things to fall into place, or for me to “get better”. All you really need in life is a place to start, and I am here to suggest we start with our outfits and see what happens from there…
