hi, i’m Calista.

I lost my breath once.

Lost 6 days of my life, started breathing again. Now, I document what worked for me in recovering from my traumatic accident, fostering a growth mindset, and exploring boundless creativity. I believe social media is more than a platform for self-aggrandizing, bashful comments, and cat videos (though if you can’t resist, here’s Biki & Bean for you). I wish no more than to share thoughtful beauty and lifestyle content with you—so you can learn from my mistakes and live your best lives even faster than I did.

Cheers to living intentionally!
