Nothing about life is simple and sometimes pain is unbearable. 

Some days the only thing I can do is hope and pray for better days. 

Dealing with chronic pain daily is unfortunate but I am still living so I still have a purpose. 

The hardest thing about it is figuring out what that purpose is….

The Anchor Tattoo. |The Indie Chic Blog | xxkaseygruenewaldxx 

I have a lot of people ask me the “meaning” of my anchor wrist tattoo and honestly it is a very personal tattoo. 

Relationships never came easy for me and they always ended up a huge disaster but there has always been one that no matter what, it always worked out. 

It all began when we were kids in school and how life played out with the many heartbreaks and major downs, God led the way. 

We went through everything a couple could go through and every odd was against us other than the fact that we truly love one another. 

So two unplanned pregnancies and a lot of laughs and tears later we are going to Celebrate our 4th Wedding anniversary. 

It is CRAZY how happens like that and I honestly couldn’t imagine life with you, my Husband. I love you Jesse Gruenewald Forever and always. 

You’re my anchor keeping me in the Safest Haven. Xoxo

Winter Skincare MUST haves- The Indie Chic Blog

01-12-2018 

The Indie Chic Blog 


Hey babes, it has been a while since I have posted a review and I am in LOVE with a few of my Skin/ Hair products lately! 

Dove Winter Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner. 

A while ago I was roaming the Shampoo isle at wal-mart as per usual and I came across the new Dove Winter Therapy set. I have always loved how gentle and amazing dove has always worked on my skin so I figured “why not” without knowing this would soon become my favorite Shampoo and Conditioner EVER! You guys!!!!!!! This leaves my hair so soft, shiny and manageable that I have not even been using any heat what-so-ever on my hair! The scent is very light and fresh, you just have to try it! 


Dove Winter Care bodywash. 

Since my last shopping haul I knew that I needed to try the Winter Care for skin as well and I am just as pleased. This bodywash leaves my skin so soft and moisturized with no ash at all. Seriously, a must have if you are like me and have dry winter skin. 


 Garnier Skin Active [new] 

I recieved this Garnier Skin Active complimentary in my Voxbox I got a few months ago from Influenster. I got this face wash in OCTOBER and look at how much is still left and I use this twice daily! I have a hard time when it comes to my face because I have very very dry skin and most face wash causes breakouts but I am happy to say my skin looks so good that I do not even use foundation anymore! 

I hope you enjoyed this review and I look forward to writing many more in the near future. Be sure to check out my previous posts and hit the follow button! Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

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

January 3rd, Putting away my Christmas decor and  Organizing my house.  

01-03-2018 


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 


Goodnight everyone,

January 2nd, Putting Positiviety into My Marriage. 

1-2-2018 


I can’t even lie about crying last night due to all the cloudy negativity and insecurities in my mind. Sometimes I feel like I am failing as a person, mom and wife and I probably do but this year I want to try harder. I want to spend time doing positive things and being a lot more adventurous. I spent way too much time in 2017 in self pity and hating everyone and everything. I was angry for things that had nothing to do with anyone but me. So now after doing some soul searching and working on myself from the inside out I feel I am strong enough to put myself into a positive state of mind. 


We (My Husband and I) have both worked our asses off to get to where we are today and I feel now more than ever, it is time to enjoy our lives together. 

I have been a mess of a woman and I have never been comfortable with being me so how could I expect to let others in right? 

My sister gave me “Fight less, Love more” by Laurie Puhn, JD maybe four years ago and this poor book has done nothing but collecting dust. 

So I have decided I will be spending my free time reading this wonderful  book and picking up new hobbies that will help me keep up the positivity. Wish me luck, and I hope your 2018 is off to a Great start! The sky is the limit babes, you can do anything that you put your mind to.
