Welcome, welcome… how was your drive? Would you like something to drink? etc etc 🙂
Thank you so much for coming to visit me at byDeze.com!
In case you were curious about the face behind the blog- it’s me! DEZE!
You know me as the writer & owner of this here lifestyle blog.
But I’m also a healthcare professional, 30+ millennial, wife, sister, daughter, auntie and friend. I am extremely proud of allll of those titles!
A few of my FAVORITE THINGS:
🛍 Scouring Etsy for unique finds
🍛 Thai food & Indian food. All is well in the presence of a good yellow curry or shrimp biryani
👂🏾Listening to people tell stories
❗Using exclamation points & emojis when I write (I’ve had to edit out a whole bunch in this post alone)
🎁 Obsessing over seemingly trivial details like cute gift wrapping 😍😍😍
Losing 10 pounds over 3 months just to turn around and gain it back in 1 month <— just kidding I hate that
👀 Ki-ki-ing over the funny (and scandalous 🤭) things being said in my Facebook groups
My Blogging Journey
Here’s a little history of how this blog came to be…
In 2017 & 2018, I was going through a really hard time. I was newly married and we had just moved to the Midwest (from the West Coast, can you say cold!??)
Above all, I was struggling with an immense amount of physical pain, emotional distress, poor mental health and discouragement from a devastating fertility journey.
In December of 2018, I started blogging as a way to refocus my thoughts and energy.
Believe it or not, I started out writing about home decor. Yeesh, that didn’t last long at all.
I was feeling a tug in my heart to be vulnerable and open about my recurrent pregnancy loss (miscarriages, ectopic pregnancies), endometriosis, trying to conceive, anxiety and all of what was happening to me.
WHILE I was figuring out how to challenge negativity and climb out a very deep hole of bitterness, anger and discouragement, I was writing about it.
That was (and still is) scary, because talking about infertility and miscarriage is so taboo (especially in my culture!)
This space continued to transform and is now a lifestyle blog where I write all kinds of everyday content for women that want to live a positive, motivated and thriving life despite their circumstances.
This is for the brave women that are struggling with chronic disease, low self worth or self esteem, living with a difficult relationship or maybe going through divorce. The woman that wakes up everyday and faces hard times that refuse to go away. The woman who is simply bored or wants to pursue their purpose!
Here, in this virtual living room, we will chase positivity and inspiration and share tools for conquering mindset so that we can live the best life possible, when things are awesome and when they suck!
So, if you’re looking for healing and balance and searching for purpose and beauty within it all, you are in good company.
