New Beginnings: Where it all Began

I'm going to go against the grain and talk about something a little different this week. I launched Erica Exposed as a platform in which I could be open and honest with not only the public, but myself as well. There are certainly aspects of my life that I do not often highlight on social media. My spirituality is one of those areas, but today, I'm going to take you there. Trust me, you're in for a bumpy and controversial ride.
The Past
As an only child growing up in a small town and conventionally-Christian home, it's safe to say that I was a little sheltered. My extended family were more involved in the religious community than my parents (at the time), although this has changed now. I too tried to stay involved in the religious community, because being from a small town meant that it was major source of my available entertainment. Now, I'm not going to sit here and pretend that I religiously upheld every "Christian value" but I did believe, and that is …

Sunscreen, Your #1 Summer Priority

Hi everyone! I apologize for the lack of posting lately. What a year 2017 has been so far. My life is unbelievably hectic right now, as I prepare myself to return to some form of normalcy. Also, I am working on a re-vamp of my blog as I am not very happy with its current setup. I hope you all can understand!  I have been spending a lot of time at my pool this summer.

First and foremost, I am such a water baby (Scorpio 4eva). Water also has amazing therapeutic benefits!

Urgent Blog Update

Unfortunately, the photo hosting website that I have been using has decided that I no longer pay enough to have my images hosted there. At this point, they replaced every one of my photos with their advert/logo until I coughed up an absurd amount of money.

I sincerely apologize to anyone that has seen my blog in this state. I am embarrassed, as this is not the quality of work that I intent to create or share. As of now, my blog is Under Construction. I am working diligently to get up and running once again. I will replace, restore and/or re-upload content as I see fit. Also, stay tuned for some exciting new announcements over the next month! I can't wait to share what ideas have been brewing, which partnerships have been established and more.

I can't wait to share more of my life with you all! I created Erica Exposed as a platform to reach the widest audience possible and to share my self-love and confidence journey. I am eager to share my Spinal Cord Injury story and my road…
