My first week of Workout/ Training. 


-Happy Monday- 

A week ago I took the plung and decided that NOW is the time to begin my fitness journey and I am so happy that I did. 

I have always had a fear of workouts/ gyms and being judged because lets face it, when you are thin/small people belittle your fitness goals. At the same time I kind of just got to a point where I thought you know what f**k it either way people are gonna hate on it but at least I will be reaching my goals for ME! 

My weight is the highest (non pregnancy) and I seem to be maintaining it well these days. I am not jumping into a diet or completely changing my daily eating habits but I am taking baby steps into having a healthier lifestyle. 

Not only am I enjoying working out but my health has improved so much as well. My anxiety is hardly even noticeable, I am able to sleep with no sleep aid and my headaches and back pain has been reduced 95% along with the help of essential oils. 

I can not wait to take weekly/monthly progress photos and see changes in my body and feel better about my physical appearance. My advice to you if you have been procrastinating working out, just DO IT! Take that leap and do it for you! 

I will Blog meal prep ideas and Weekly Fitness updates, look forward to that! Also I have a lot of new Photography to share with you all so those posts will be coming soon!

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.

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

I have been walking down this path for a while feeling all alone in the middle of nowhere. 

This path is overgrown and beautiful, although it is scary in the darkness. 

Wherever this journey leads me just know that no matter how hard these battles are, I will always find my way.

January 4th – Todays Movie Marathon. 

1-04-2018

I don’t know about you all but I have been sickly, cold and staying indoors lately. We recently have had the coldest cold front we have had in a long time and this little lady just isn’t for it. My immune system is doing its best thankfully because I have to avoid any and all infections due to how my bladder flares after antibiotics. 

So I have been filling my down time with movies other than reading and yes I will be sharing my view on “Fight less, Love more” when I am finished with it. 


Last nights movie was “Stepmom” starring Julia Roberts and Susan Surandon, one of my favorite movies from my younger years. This movie is a perfect movies for a cold winter day. I have been off of my Anti-depressant medication since the 29th and I am a big ball of Emotion!!!!! 

As a child I did not know what Cancer even was or as an adult I really do cry my eyes out. Is it just me or is Cancer way more common these days than in the 90s? I think so. 


Another favorite is “Crazy, Stupid, Love”.  The cast of this movie is just amazing and every little twist and turn is hilarious and heartfelt. Movies like this shows me that you don’t have to have a picture perfect life to have it all. Sometimes things fall apart, sometimes life gets crazy but it is how you deal with it, that’s what matters. 


Let me just say that Shailene Woodley has always been a favorite actress and when she stars in a movie, I know I am going to be in love. Her corcky and raw personality along with Ansel Elgort just went together perfectly! I have watched this movie a Hundred Million times and I will never get over the heartache. 

So, Tomorrow I will be uploading a new Vlog on my YouTube channel Subscribe here! I will be loading weekly Vlogs ever Friday for the whole Year of 2018!!!!! Oh snap! It’s about to get real guys! 

Let me know some of your favorite Movies to keep me company while I am in bed a lot. I love watching and reading new books and opening my mind to creative worlds. 

Until tomorrow. Xoxo
