Inspire, Live, & Love

I’m a twenty-year-old, soon-to-be college student (Fall 2014), majoring in Mass Communications. I am on a journey of wellness and managing my PCOS. I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), insulin resistance, and hirsutism in February 2009. I have been gluten-free since September 2013, after being diagnosed with gluten intolerance. I created OurPCOS on the 23rd of April 2012, for support, advice, and just so those going through life with PCOS. This is my place to write about daily life, PCOS, recipes, figuring out who I am throughout this hectic but wonderful time in my life.



Join 1in10 for our 2nd Annual “Lights Out” Event!

Last year, 1in10 introduced “Lights Out for Infertility Awareness”.

This year, we’re bringing it back and giving participants the chance to win an Amazon Gift Card - just for helping us spread awareness!

"Lights Out" is completely free to participate in. This year, it is being held on Saturday, April 26th at 8pm. No matter what time zone you’re in, turn your house lights off for 10 minutes to show your support for those struggling with infertility.


I found this on the 1in10 website and wanted to share it here for the PCOS community that is unaware. It is in six days, so spread the word! 






what is wrong with pugs.

i mean that in the best way possible.

This is actually really smart of them. They’re so fat and have such little legs that hopping like that is the most efficient way of getting up the stairs. It’s directly comparable to astronauts skipping while on the surface of the moon due to the bloated nature of their suits and the low gravity.

I just ate a toasted peanut butter and jelly sandwich with a pickle. I can’t even explain it. Just give in to cravings and hope it comes out how you imagined.

pcoscansuckit said: You can sharpen the eyeliner and it’ll work just fine and dandy :-) I thought my UD liner was in a plastic case for a while but it’s not.

Thank you for telling me! I almost tossed it out.

Yesterday I played around with new make-up. Sadly my Urban Decay eyeliner broke when the cap stuck, but did like the champagne eyeshadow.

I am currently reading Born Under a Lucky Moon by Dana Precious. I have heard such wonderful things about this book, so with the nice weather I am getting outside to read.

The past two days I have felt so lightheaded. I cannot focus, I am tired even on eight hours of sleep. I don’t know if it’s brain fog from consuming so much gluten the past week, but I cannot go grocery shopping until next Friday so I have to make due with the food in the house.


im bored of life and everything so i decided to make a post of everything. like a ref list of workouts, studying help, writing, drawing… etc! this will literally take me hours i s2g

Much needed self love time tonight

Brewed a cup of chamomile tea while I went to shower. Exfoliated, cleansed, and moisturized. I think tomorrow morning I may share a post about the latest skincare products I am loving because there are a few samples I received that work wonders. I painted my toenails, which oddly tingle since painting (allergic?). The Alex and Ani lotion I received in my Glossybox is almost empty, so I need to make a purchase. I want to buy a large glass container of it because I love it so much. I am going to do a little bit of yoga, relax in bed, and then watch a show that a friend suggested. I needed some me time to rejuvenate, and tonight did just that.

Am I the only one who doesn’t like cooked tomatoes? I found a recipe for a pasta dish, and sliced cherry tomatoes were an ingredient. Just sliced and tossed into the pan with other ingredients. I don’t know why, but I don’t like the taste and texture of cooked tomatoes. I am picky to the point I scoop out the inside of the tomato because I don’t like it. I love sauce and I don’t mind sun dried tomatoes, but that is it.
