So last year, I feel like you and I, dear reader, entered a new phase of realness on This Square Peg. This is a lifestyle blog, yes, and we discussed various aspects of my life, including openly sharing with you that 2019 mostly stunk. I initially wondered if these were things I even wanted to [...]
This post is inspired by a very moving and honest post on In My Sunday Best, where blogger Sade openly discusses her experience with relationship rejection. Read it and reflect; I appreciated her candor and discussing the inspiring lessons she learned about herself. As I read it, it reminded me so much of my own [...]
#30: Guess who was super busy yesterday and the day went by without the next to last blog entry for Blogtober? So, yeah, we forgot. Buuuuut... ************************************** #31: We Did It! Day 31. A whole month of talking to y'all everyday about my favorite season in some way, shape, or form. A whole month of [...]
As promised, I debuted my new fall lippie at the office today. And pic'ed it. See below. Shall we break down why Smoked Purple is a winner for me? 1. It's matte, but it goes on so smooth for me. Sure, a bit of balm helps before applying but I find it really easy to [...]

Welp, it happened. She entered a brand new decade. (She is me, in case you haven't noticed the whole referring to myself in the third person thing.) Here's how I feel about it: 40 for the win. Happy Autumn.
Sometimes I wonder if I love fall so much because it's the visual embodiment of all the things that, psychologically, I should be doing a better job of maintaining. Every year, nature takes stock and detoxes, shedding its skin in the loveliest, most wondrous of ways. It's a lesson to be learned, and certainly one [...]
Look. That lovely, crisp, autumnal breeze in the atmosphere? It's wonderful. And also very, very dangerous. This morning, as I trudged into work and settled myself at my desk, I noticed something as I was typing away on my keyboard. Something that took my breath away. My knuckles were ashy. Like gray. The abject horror [...]
