5 Ways To Boost Confidence

November 8, 2017

As my birthday rapidly approaches, twenty-six is feeling a tad older than I expected it to, heck I’m officially going to be in my upper 20’s! These are the years where I’ve always pre-destined my “plans” to begin. And while I may not have it all figured out just yet, I can say that at 26 I’m feeling more confident in my own skin than I ever have.

But trust me- this has been 26 years in the making. I’ve gone through plenty of ups and downs, and I’ve  lacked confidence in every aspect of my life, including my weight, my skin, outfits, even my writing, and I  think that’s normal.

Not to mention, these days lash extensions, and a never-ending tan have become the norm, and it can begin to feel like regular old you doesn’t cut it anymore. But that’s just not true, and the world has proven to me over and over again that I’m most attractive and successful when my confidence shines through. So, at the ripe old age of almost 26, here are my five ways to boost your natural confidence, allowing you to forget the filter and life your best life. Continue Reading

September 13, 2017

Hey everybody! I know it’s been awhile since I posted on the blog. Somewhere between the E and O of SEO I lost my mojo, but I’m back in true Life’s A Beacham fashion with a restaurant review about a little place called Luke’s Lobster. This post needed to be written, not just for the food porn you’re about to enjoy (some of my best yet) but because of the extremely kind efforts on Luke’s Lobster’s part to make sure we had a delicious yet safe, gluten-free lobster roll. So, no more excuses, you know the drill- if you’re dying to see my first ever gluten-free lobster roll, keep scrolling to checkout my Luke’s Lobster Chicago review! Continue Reading
