Whaddup, y’all? I’m Carrie Cullen.

Wanna be real life friends?

I’m an honest as they come blogger and photographer who wants to get to know you in real life; the messy, beautiful human you are. I’m here to remind you that you are perfectly imperfect, you are enough, and I’m over here supporting your realness along the way!

I love serving the world by fostering true community beyond our screens by taking a refreshingly transparent approach to talking about taboo topics like surviving the loss of my brother to suicide, feeling alone and not enough in this massive media filled world and how to overcome it all, inspire and unleash the best version of ourselves.

I am most passionate about encouraging people to love their imperfect selves on the journey to creating their most fulfilled life. If you’re craving more honesty, connection and inspiration, you are in the right place!

Most evenings you can find me in small town Wisconsin on the couch of my studio apartment cozied up with my Feyoncé. I am best known for my Beyoncé dance moves, my listening ear and sound (yet sometimes sassy) advice, and not sugar coating anything for anybody.

I’d love to cozy up and sip a cocktail over some intentional conversation, dance to Beyoncé and be badasses together. Here’s to new friends!

“Because true belonging only happens when we present our authentic, imperfect selves to the world, our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance.”

“You are loved. Massively. Ferociously. Unconditionally. The Universe is totally freaking out about how awesome you are. It’s got you wrapped in a warm gorilla hug of adoration. It wants to give you everything you desire. It wants you to be happy. It wants you to see what it sees in you.”
