Okay so it may not feel like it for everyone, but we all know it’s coming ( even though it already feels like it’s arrived for those of us in the South…). If we are talking about calendar official days, the first day of Spring is only a few days away. I haven’t been able to shop for any spring clothes yet but that’s okay! That’s what brought me to this post actually.
It seems that so far I am encouraged to be more innovative this year which has me looking for more avenues in which to be creative. I think the more you challenge yourself by exercising restraint, the more creative you get. If you want to be creative with the clothes you have, there are small ways to transform them into spring ready attire. Shall we dive in?

In the moment, I laughed it off. We were having a good time and I didn’t want to turn what was meant to be a compliment (or at least I think it was meant to be a compliment…) into something it wasn’t meant to be received as. Two guy schoolmates of mine (we’ll call them Joe and Moe) and I were in the car, talking and laughing about God knows what, on our way to a fast-food restaurant. We were all cracking jokes about something, when Moe turned to me and said: Continue reading “Surviving the Comparison Trap”
Can we just take a second to appreciate the beauty we are about to witness in the upcoming month? I love winter but I’m just about ready for it to fade away. I don’t know if it’s because Texas had two snow days this year or if it’s simply the fact that my internal clock is off but either way, I’m ready for the first day of spring to make its arrival!
I thought we could do some “Spring planning” if you will to get a head start on the upcoming month! If you haven’t figured out your bullet journal pages for the next month or you’re just curious as to how the whole bullet journal thing works from month to month, you’ve come to the right place!

At the beginning of the year, I downloaded a horoscope app (because I will admit my curiosity about how accurate these kinds of things are has gotten the best of me) and decided to check out my horoscope for the year. Basically it states that, for Leo’s, this year will be a year of anti-comfort. Continue reading “How to Overcome the Awkwardness of Stepping Outside Your Comfort Zone”
I received my first VoxBox complimentary via Influenster (if you are a beauty addict or just enjoy free things in general, you should sign up!! It’s amazing.) at the end of December 2017 after having a profile with Influenster for a good year, year and a half. A cool milestone to reach just in time for the new year if I do say so myself. *wink wink*
Now if you follow me on Instagram, you might be saying “finallyyyyyy!” because I was so excited when I got the products, I posted about them as soon as I possibly could (that was back in December..). I mean, in a sense, you’re right. This review is sort of overdue from a chronological standpoint but if we look at it from a testing period standpoint… I’m actually right on time (;
I wanted to wait a little to write and Continue reading “St.Ives Revitalizing Lotion and Soothing Lotion Review (VoxBox Unboxing & Review)”
I have always been the kind of girl who couldn’t care less about name brands and labels. Style, to me, is more so an expression of identity. I’ve always felt like the clothes that someone wears shouldn’t leave people to wonder how they can look the exact same, but rather inspire people to enhance their individuality by wearing pieces that compliment them.
I would much rather have my clothes accentuate me than to verbally accentuate my clothes. Because who’s working for who here?.. Although there are many people who I feel are models of inspiration as far as style is concerned in this particular area, of all of them, Leandra Medine is queen.

Seeing as how we are nearing the end of the first month of the new year, I’ve been thinking a lot about keeping up the positive “new me” momentum. It’s so much easier to maintain that positive mentality during the last few weeks of December and the first few weeks of January but I think once we’re all settled into the new year, that drive and motivation once dedicated to adopting the new ___(fill in the blank)___ declines. In order to counteract this, I try to focus on a new practice every month. Continue reading “4 Simple Ways to Declutter Your Life”
