In 2009, I created my blog as a space for you to come to escape and a place where people can come to laugh and learn while building an inspired and supported community that celebrates the art of creative living. I was never overly interested in sharing anything related to politics, whether that be sharing my political stance or political advice for you!

Having said that, in 2020 I have seen a lot of injustices happening around the world and as I become more educated I believe that it is important to encourage and share with you about the importance of voting!

Today, we have rounded up some helpful information that will make going to the polls on voting day less stressful!
