CLOSET VOMIT IS 3 YEARS OLD!

My bank account was just automatically charged by my hosting service, which only means one thing: Closet Vomit is 3 today!

MY ANXIETY

This post isn’t pretty. Anxiety isn’t pretty. The photo above that you see is how I look in this exact moment, sitting in the exact same spot, hair half-damp, traces of makeup down my face, wearing only my giant NASA sweatshirt that I only seem to wear when I’m having a anxious or depressive episode….

HOW I DECORATE MY HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS (WITHOUT COMMITMENT)
