Advice I Would Give My Younger Self

As my college career is nearing its end, I have had a lot of time to think about the past and reflect. And there are so many things about college I regret. While I firmly believe everything that has happened thus far has happened for a reason and it has made me a better person because of it, if I had the opportunity to go back in time and change things, I would, without a doubt, do things differently. There are so many things I did not know and so many things I was ignorant about. I wish someone had knocked sense into me. You guys might not agree with some of these things, but after being in college for 5+ years and listening to the generic advice you hear from counselors, teachers, and adults, I have realized that not all advice works for everyone and everyone is different. (FYI: this is a advice to MYSELF . it's obviously not applicable to everyone, so don't feel like you have to agree/disagree with this) If you are unsure about what career path you want to take, tak

I Don't Know Fashion (IDKF): A Grungey Edgy Casual Look + new youtube video!

I've been slacking on my blog lately and it's been OVER A YEAR since I did a fashion-related post! But since it's been a while, I went all out.... I'm giving you guys a fashion post AND a youtube video!!  This isn't the most interesting outfit in the world, but as you can tell I went for a VERY casual but grungey/edgy look? Or at least that's what I tried to go for lol. Top : Forever 21 Shorts : Cut offs which I made Shoes : Lulus Purse : H&M Hair : Washed/air-dried and put in a half bun I made a speedy YouTube video of how I do my makeup on more "glam" occasions! This is NOT a tutorial. This is literally just how I do my makeup if I'm going out with friends or a special occasion that requires me to not look like a potato. I change up the eye makeup depending on the outfit, so this particular night I decided to go with a black smokey eye with my outfit. Of course the one time I decide to film, I don't like how my makeup tur

Hobby Lobby Challenge

So there are many challenges on the internet. Most of them don't interest me, but then I heard about the "Hobby Lobby Challenge"? I think it was started by a girl on twitter. Basically what you're supposed to do is go to Hobby Lobby and take photos in the floral section of Hobby Lobby. Sounds easy, but the challenge is trying to take and make the photos look like you're in a field or with actual nature and not in a store. As someone who loves photography, this was actually a creative challenge for me and one of the coolest things I've ever done. It shows that you don't have to be in a beautiful exotic location to take a beautiful photo. It was awkward when people who walk past us, but Frances and I had such a fun time taking photos of each other! All photos were taken on a Nikon D3100 and edited with VSCO. Check out my la

Winter Favorites 2018

I haven't done a favorites post in a while! Here are my favorites from the last few months. Black Jacket // Sienna & Bellini This jacket has a built-in heater or something. I've worn this jacket when the temperature has reached freezing and it has kept me so warm!! Velvet Dress // Forever 21 This was one of my impulsive purchases. But it is actually cute, comfy, and warm! I wore it while traveling during Christmas break. Black Sweater // Belk Black is my favorite color and I noticed that my closet was lacking a black sweater! I am obsessed with this one. Navy Blue Converse I got these navy-blue converse and they're slightly different from normal ones since they have gold and black on them, which makes me love them. They are so cute and go with everything! Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay // Amazon I've been eying this mask for MONTHS and my mom went and got it for me for Christmas!!! And my goodness, it literally makes your pores disap
