Hello+First Impressions

I decided to do a first impression of the toothpaste that the Hello brand sent out for me to try out. I just used it so this is definitely a first impressions kind of thing.

Before I get deep into it I have to say how much I love the pouch. I’m going to use it for some future traveling. Tonight I used the extra whitening toothpaste and it is really nice. One thing I like about it is that it’s not a super minty taste but still feels fresh.

I can do an Instagram (@sathewriter) review on the other flavor if you want.

*Hello sent me these products to try out 

New Glasses+Firmoo


I’m not sure if I have ever worn my glasses here on the blog, but I do have to wear glasses because of my eyesight. Madison and I actually joke about our eyesight and how we love to write and read but have the worst vision.

My sister also wears glasses and told me about a sale Firmoo was having, buy one pair of glasses and get the other pair free. I didn’t hesitate to pick out a pair. I was in desperate need of new glasses. I typically go for black, but when I came across this smokey, marble, and gray design I knew I needed them. If you follow me on Twitter (@sathewriter) then you know about my glasses and my marble obsession already.


I’m completely in love with everything about these glasses. The frame is sturdy and the packaging is perfect. They arrived extremely quickly as well. Firmoo included a cool keychain and a durable case for the glasses, along with a bag to store them in. I’m in love guys.

I definitely recommend Firmoo for your next pair of glasses. I’m not sponsored at all and I was not asked to write about Firmoo. I honestly just love my experience and thought I would share it with you all.


Blogmas Day 24+Coming Out

I realize how lucky I am to have you all and how lucky I am to have my family and friends. I get to share everything on here. But there’s something I haven’t shared with anyone really. I told Zephyr first, and then my mom and sister.

Since today is the last day of blogmas I thought I would share something with you all.

I’m bisexual.

It’s something I’ve known for a really long time. I just never knew how to really know. I guess I was always looking for a sign to just tell me “hey, you’re bisexual”.

I’m lucky to have family and friends who are supportive and not judgemental.

This past semester was a tough one. Dealing with being bullied, made fun of, threatened, and a lot more terrible things made this even more confusing and hard to be able to focus on my feelings about my sexuality.

But I’m in a safe place now. I feel comfortable and confident. I feel like there isn’t anything weighing on me. I understand a lot of people don’t have a supportive and loving family when they come out, I can’t imagine how hard that must be. But I must say that me coming out has been pretty easy and peaceful.

Of course we live in a world where people don’t agree with LGBTQ+ community. For me I find that sad. How could you not agree with self love and falling in love?

I wanted to share this with you all because you all are apart of my family. I think it’s important to live the life you want to live and love who you want to love.

I like men and women and that’s okay. I’m okay. My job isn’t to please the world. My job is to be a loving and kind human.

There will always be people in this world that will try to break you, but remember no one in this world can break you.

I love you all. I hope you enjoyed Blogmas. It was a lot of work but even more fun.  This is my last post for 2015, I’ll see you all in 2016. As you can imagine blogging everyday for a whole month really wiped me out creatively. So I’m going to take a couple of weeks off before I start back. 2016 will be a great year for S.A. The Writer. I have some great things in store for us all.

Be sure to keep up with me on social media.

Social Media+Your Story


If I don’t do this now I will keep forgetting to do it. I have a few social media outlets that I would love for you guys to join me on. I always forget to tell you guys, but since I remember now I’ll give you guys the scoop.

I have a love/hate relationship with social media. As much as I love it I hate that it’s such an addictive aspect of my life. So I’ve decided to use my social media presence for good purposes only. One good thing I can think of is getting to know you all better.

I’m always talking about myself. It’s always me this, Shalida that, now granted this is my blog about my life. But I’m naturally a curious person. I want to know everything about you all! I’m on Facebook all day everyday, I Instagram photos all the time, and Pinterest holds all of my inspiration and ideas. Please join me on these social media sites. I want to finally learn YOUR story.
