Life update and Newest Photography| The Indie Chic Blog 

– Hello everyone- 

It has been a hot minute since I have been back and I thought, why not fill you all in on what I have been up to!?!  

Since stopping all of my medications and trying more natural remedies for my  anxiety and pain I have been feeling 100x better! I am clear headed, at a healthy weight, happy and I recently picked up my Nikon DSLR camera again! 

With all of the beauty of Spring blossoming  I recently booked a few sessions as well as just taking photos of what catches my eye and well…. although I am a bit rusty and I am still learning I was so please with the outcome of them all. I love the idea of being a non-traditional photographer and stepping out of the lines and going the extra mile that most do not even think of. Now, my photography is not for everyone and as I learned the hard way, not everyone will be supportive I will not give up on my dream of showing my clients their own REAL beauty. 

I think one thing that sets me apart from all of the others is that I do NOT photoshop. I use very simple ways of editing my photos to show the real beauty of each individual session. The whole reason of my Photography name “Unlikely Photography” is because Unlike most other photographers I refuse to edit out what makes us beautiful as individuals and HUMAN! I do not take photos for perfection. I want to show the world as beautiful as I see it with a dash of creativity. 

I stepped out of my comfort zone completely and I am trying new ideas/ photoshoots and editing and for a beginner I don’t think they turned out too bad! I know that my recent clients have been very pleased with their photos. 

I am thankful that I never lost sight of what I really want and what I deserve. I am beyond blessed to be able to stay home with my children and have a job that I can respect myself for. Dreams do not come true if you do not work for it. 

Please feel free to like, comment and share if you like my post as well as following my Blog. I am beyond thankful to all of my followers and viewers who have stuck around through my roller coaster life!

Instagram Care Package | Sweet Friend | The Indie Chic Blog 

Hello readers, I hope you all had a amazing weekend, I know I did! 

Friday I received a wonderful package from a very sweet Instagramer who reached out to me in response to my posts on my page about pain. Her daughter suffers from the same bladder condition that I have and she very kindly spent a few days chatting with me about ALL of my body pain I have been having. Mostly neck and shoulder area and I have even been going to the Chiropractor… but I had yet had any sort of relief from the pain and swelling.. 

A Lady named Cheryl and Her daughter swear by Young living oils and she sent me some samples (peppermint and her own mix) alone with a sweet card pictured above. I have actually been feeling better after rubbing these oils on my pained areas and for that I am SO thankful. 

This has really made me interested in investing in oils for myself and my family! 

It is absolutely amazing that these women that I have never met took the time and sent me such an amazing gift. 

I am excited to share how these oils help me and I hope to become more educated on oils and other Holistic remedies for myself and my family! 

Thank you for stopping by my page and be sure to like and follow my blog to keep up with my ever random life.

Influenster| UniquelyJ Vox Box| TheIndieChicBlog 

Hello and Good Morning friends! 

I recently received another complimentary Vox Box from Influenster– a mobile app for Apple and Android and in your free time take a few “snaps” and give your review on your favorite items. This is my 5th Box I have receive since joining about 6 months ago. All I do is agree to review my complimentary items in very simple steps, earn my badges and that is it! 

What are “snaps”? Snaps are very quick and simple reviews that you write on every day items that you use in your household/ daily life. 

There are categories from Makeup- Travel as you can see some from these photos below. 


So why take “snaps” and write reviews? 

After adding your interest you will begin writing reviews on items you love/dislike, the better the review, the more of a chance you will have on receiving a complimentary Vox Box (free items).  

How to receive a Vox Box? 

When making your profile you will need to add your social media accounts and that plays the biggest role in recieving a Vox Box.  Up your  Impact score  and get ready to receiving a Vox Box. You will need to add all of your social media as well using your referral link to invite friends to join this amazing app! 

These are my personal badges that I have earned the past few months on Influenster. When you agree to receive and review a Vox Box you will earn badges for completing simple reviews on the items you received. The more badges you earn will help boost your chances of recieving Vox Boxes In the future. 

The UniquelyJ Box from Jet (online shopping website) I had the pleasure of testing out two household cleaners, a all purpose cleaner and a wooden floor cleaner. 

These are scent free- plant based ingredients cleaners that are safe to use around your family/ pets. You can order online from for very affordable prices and get free shipping for orders $35 and up!

Glitter Tears MOTD | TheIndieChicBlog | xxkaseygruenewaldxx 

Hey guys, I hope you all are having a great weekend as for me I have had a wonderful day.  Today was the first day in MONTHS that I have been pain free and I figured after all of the cleaning, cooking (mom life) that I would sit down and play with some makeup. 

I haven’t given up on my dream of someday becoming a Makeup Artist and I am slowly but surely getting back into the swing of it. I really hope to go to Cosmetology school soon so I can be licensed in makeup and hair. I do freelance haircuts and sometimes makeup on the side as well as photography so I figured if I were licensed I could begin doing Weddings, Events and well who knows. The whole license is not very important to me though because I know a lot of people who are makeup artist even without being certified so I guess I’ll just have to really think about it. What do you think about it? Drop your opinions in the comment section. 

Also, I will have new photography coming soon so I am very excited about that as well and I am going to being stepping up my Photography skills and try some very cool ideas. I am also wanting to begin taking “photography” style photos of myself for my Social Media!! 

I did a makeup look with some glitter tears the other day and I LOVE it, I’m not sure what it is about the glitter tears but I am obsessed and excited to try new makeup looks. I follow so many creative people on my Instagram so I am feeling very inspired and excited. If you are on Instagram follow me so we can become friends. 

My Instagram account is the best way to keep up with all of the things that I create whether it be Makeup, Photography or well…. everything. 

This Smoked out Cateye, glitter tears and black brows are my JAM and I feel fierce, grunge and beautiful.  Let me know what you think of this look and if you have any makeup look suggestions, drop them in the comment section. 

I love you all and I will be back very soon! Do not forget to like and follow. Xoxo
