Re-Inventing your Style and Your Wardrobe! Inspiration!

When I graduated high school I didn’t really know what I wanted to do. I still am discovering what I love and developing a career that’s meaningful and still allows me to be creative. I grew up in a pretty artistic house, my mom is creative and talented when it comes to art and sewing. While as a kid some of her skills rubbed off on me (they’re currently in some much needed practice), I was convinced that I wanted to work in fashion and design formal wear. I grew up learning how to sew but when I took a sewing class in HS I realized, nope not for me. Sewing is particular and meticulous especially when it comes to...

But when its cold like this and we’re all in full hibernation mode. I mean I’ve been hibernating since November pretty much. It’s super easy to get cabin fever.

February BirchBox Review

Some months my Birchbox is filled with a bunch of stuff that I’m like…meh about. Other months I get stuff I’m absolutley GAGA over! This was TOTALLY one of those months. Almost every product (that I’ve tried so far) I’ve liked and even though I got yet another eyeliner (I’m pretty sure I’ve gotten at least 10 eyeliners from Birchbox) it was by far one of the BEST things I got in my box.          BeeKind Hair Conditioner ($15) I used this once so far, it has a really pleasant scent. I have sooooo many different conditioners that Its super hard for me to determine if a conditioner does really amazing things for my hair. I did...
