What I’m Excited for This Summer!

Hey Loves!

I just wanted to take the time to let you guys in on my plans for this summer! This summer I plan to be banking blogs and YouTube videos: this means I’m going to be working really hard so when the next semester comes around, I won’t miss a beat when it comes to my post schedule!

This summer I plan to vlog more, which means I’m going to attempt to be active on my YouTube channel as well, which will be hard because I tend to forget to schedule in editing time. In June I will be going to California for a family reunion, and to just explore, so get excited for that! I will attempt another travel guide, and will work hard to make my vlogs the best that they can be.

I already have some DIY projects, and lookbook projects, and other fun stuff in the works as well, so get ready for those! I also plan to try out for my school’s FSA dance group once the fall semester starts, which means I need to be practicing, which means – more dance classes, and more work outs! I am currently building up my confidence and learning how to loosen up, and not be exact, which is hard for me since I come from a contemporary and ballet background, but am trying out for a hip-hop team.

Remember that I love taking your requests, so if you have any types of videos or blog posts you want me to do, feel free to leave comments, and message me on any social media platform!

I’m super excited for this summer, and I hope you guys are too! 

Until Next Time xoxo

Hello Beautiful!

I felt obligated to take the time to apologize, again, for being completely absent this past month. As most of you may know, I just completed my first year of college, and I was really stressed out. All I could think about was studying and doing well my first year.

Regardless, that’s no excuse to completely leave you guys hanging. But, no worries – as i mentioned on Twitter – I have a ton of projects planned out, and a lot of ideas to the point where I feel like I will implode if I don’t share them with you guys!

As always, if you ever have requests, feel free to let me know in the comments, or on any of my social media platforms. Expect to see me soon~

Until Next Time xoxo

Happy Wednesday Loves~

Before I begin today’s blog post, I would like to sincerely apologize for my absence recently. Last week, I was on spring break (I really wanted to just spend time with my boyfriend and my parents), and the week before I had three major exams I had to really focus on. Now that my schedule has cleared up again, I can now focus fully on my blog content! Regardless, have no fear, during my break, I was prewriting and brainstorming.


Along with the busy weeks in the life of a stressful college student, there are moments where you start to mentally panic and freak yourself out, especially when you have a demanding major with demanding classes and professors. During these moments, you need to find ways to relax and unwind, or else you will literally explode.

Over the years I’ve overheard others talking about how it would be like to work a retail job because they get to wear cute clothes and dress fashionably.

In the span of about two years, I have worked for a retail store and a department store, and to say that that there aren’t any cons to working in either types of clothing stores is a lie.

Here is the reality of working in the retail industry:  Continue reading “Retail Reality: The Basic Truth”

Four Outfit Ideas You Can Wear in the Classroom and at Work

Happy Saturday! Today’s post is going to be more fashion orientated! Now some of you may know that I have a job in retail, and last semester I was working during the week as well as the weekend, and girl – let me tell you – I got so stressed out with my outfits for school and for work. Sometimes I felt like I had to bring my whole closet with me in my car.

Here are four outfits ideas that you can wear in the classroom and at work:  Continue reading “Four Outfit Ideas You Can Wear in the Classroom and at Work”

Before I start today’s post, I would like to apologize for my inactivity. I didn’t realize that it’s been 20 days since my last post. I had my first couple of tests for the semester and something personal came up.

At the beginning of January, I received a package completely unaware of what it was. Surprisingly, I received two cans of Dove’s Dry Spray deodorant, one for women and one for men, from the courtesy of Target and Influenster.

Here is what me and my boyfriend thought about Dove’s Dry Spray deodorant:  Continue reading “Product Review: Dove Dry Spray”
