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.

– 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

It has been a long time since I have gotten behind the camera and there are many reasons why but I am more than ready to get back to my Photography.

I look forward to sharing my Photos with you all and doing what I feel I was born to do.

– Hello everyone-
I can not believe that January will be over soon because it seemed like yesterday it was Christmas! Now I can not lie, I have not stuck with some of my resolutions but I am working my creative mind to create more attractive content on my Instagram account. (Click to follow me)
I started my Instagram account xxkaseygruenewaldxx last summer and I have reached over 1,000 followers so far and I am SO excited to see new viewers here on my Blog.
I find it very fun to be artsy and using new techniques and filters to edit my photos and I have fallen in love with a few photos.
Now you may not see anything special about these photos but I am sharing them as an example of content I post on my Instagram account.
A lot of the times what I write is inspired by the cover photo and when I start writing a post I have no idea where I am going with it. As a Photographer I feel this comes natural because photos are my passion.
I look forward to future Sessions and fun posts in the near future.
“When I have a camera in my hand I know no fear”

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

So even though I did NOT want to, I forced myself out of bed and organized all of my clothes… this literally took me like 4 hours to complete!
There is a few things you guys should know about me right now
1. I hate laundry
Laundry is the most annoying chore in my household mostly because we have a 9 y/o daughter who changes her clothes a million times a day. I have to wash clothes at least once a day to keep up with it and well, I’m lazy and 90% of the time I am not feeling good (thanks to Interstitial Cystitis) and well shit gets piled up.
2. I can sleep my life away
When it comes to sleep I typically need like 18 hours of sleep daily. I have always been this way and I have always needed naps. Like I am not even joking. When I was in school (elementary- High school) as soon as I got home I would eat and then take a 2 hour nap. As an adult things didn’t change but whatever. Lol
3. I love to cook but hate cleaning.
I could spend all hours of my day in the kitchen putting together homemade meals and snacks for my family but when it comes to cleaning it up I’m like nah! I can not be the only one, right?
So with this whole cleaning and organizing for me, I think it stinks but it is much needed in my house. We get so busy/lazy that shit just gets crammed everywhere… literally. So I am taking it day by day, room by room and completely organizing and cleaning my whole house. I think I have about a million bags worth of crap to throw out already and all I did was put away our Christmas decor and organizing our master bedroom closet.
I guess we will see what I get myself into tomorrow in my house cleaning nightmare.
Oh, Hello to my new followers I am so thrilled to see new faces! This blog keeps me going and each and every one of my viewers makes me so happy!!!!
Well guys the NyQuil is kicking in so I better stop typing. Haha

Hello everyone and how excited are we to be at the brink of a new year!!!! I know I have some pretty good and realistic goals for 2018. I will take my goals step by step bug I am more than excited to push myself and reach every goal!
A quick recap of my 2017
I took time off of working (cashiering) to focus on myself, my health and my little family and it was the best decision I could have made. Due to endless doctor visits, ER stays and misdiagnosis I finally got my answer, I have a bladder syndrome called Interstitial Cystitis. Since then I have been able to rest on my worst days, cook dinner, and spent time with everyone that I love the most. I will always be forever thankful for my husband for helping me get to where I am today.
I decided to begin blogging and it quickly led me to a passion and dream I didn’t even know I had! Now, I am officially a new Photographer and I am so blessed to see everyone who likes my photos and is cheering me on! Everything fell into place so quickly and I am just so excited to keep going forward.
I went on a beautiful Family Vacation to Red River, New Mexico where we learned how to ski and spend our first day in a real “snowy day” magical wonderland! View my previous posts to view my take on our Vacation.
I found who I am as a individual and I am learning to love myself. I spent my whole life in a horrible place mentally and I am so happy that I made the choices that I did to get me to where I am today. I am currently at the healthiest place I have ever been and I am so thrilled to be at the highest weight (nonprengnancy) and I have a clear, cheerful mind!
- Focus on my Physical and mental health and achieve goals that used to be impossible.
- Hobbies- crafting, creative things, drawing etc.
- Be myself 100% and not care what others think
- Read read read
- Practice with makeup 3 times a week
- Up my Instagram content.
- Let go of the past and all the painful memories
- Love more.
- Be a better wife/ mother.
- Let go of negative people and hold on to those who support me.
I am so excited for a New Year and all of the possibilities that we have in front of us all. I hope everyone is looking forward to goals no matter how big or small! I would love to chat with you all and hear what you have as goals as well! I will be back very soon!
New Photography, vlogs and blogs coming very soon. I can not wait to show you all what I have planned for 2018! Cheers
