Some SUPER Exciting News + You Can Shop My Looks?!

I am a firm believer in celebrating the little things, no matter how small or large your feats may be in your own eyes.

The Much Needed Life Update + The Full Blown Summer Recap

The truth is, I feel like I’ve been really slacking lately in terms of my blog and procrastination wise.

However, I still do not feel qualified to give you the ‘secret’ to blogging. In fact, I’m still waiting for someone to give it to me.  But the truth is, that is how we all feel. A wise man once told me that in life there will always be somebody better than you; however, it is your choice whether or not you become that somebody. There is truth in both of his statements. In reality, there probably will always be people three steps ahead of you in life but that does not mean that you are incapable of being the person ahead. With […]
