I thought my previous style post (if you missed it, here’s the link) would be my last post for 2018, but I was wrong. This reflections and resolutions write up all started when I was creating Instagram stories with my favorite photos and memories of 2018. I soon realized that I had way too much to reflect on in just an Instagram story.  Although, my favorite type of posts to read and create are usually style posts, I genuinely enjoy writing these serious kind of blogs, because it gives me a chance to process my…

Hello everyone! After writing my “Lessons Learned After Graduation” post a few months ago, (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, check it out here) I received tons of feedback regarding my post graduate job and tips on how to land your perfect job after college, or just your dream job in general. So in today’s post, I am talking about one very important factor in your job application process, your resume.  If you’re like me a resume is super hard to put together, because I struggle with deciding what skills and experiences are…

It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost a year since I graduated from college, the end of May to be exact.  Last year at this time, I was entering my final month and a half of college and although it was one of the greatest times of life, it was also one of the scariest.  The fear of the unknown crept into me during those final weeks on my college campus. The unknown of what life after college was going to entail, because I knew once the end of May hit, I was still jobless…

After a few years of long luscious locks accompanying the hippy vibe seen everywhere, 2018 is bringing back the short hair look, chopping off those tresses without a backwards glance.  From pixie cuts that are styled with longer bangs or ruffled into a natural ‘fairy from the woods’ look to bobs that just brush the shoulders, short hair is back with a bang.

Life is all about making ethical choices.  And believe it or not, beauty and fashion is an industry ripe for questionable ethics.  There is something we can all do about this now, in the modern age. Whether you are just out of college, or you’re looking for a way to give back to society, there are simple ways for us all to contribute, and you can do this in your fashion choices.   How can we do this? (Pixnio) Buy Locally Buying items locally isn’t just convenient, but it’s beneficial for the local economy.  Spending…

Beauty and fashion, from a critical and pessimistic perspective, could be considered as a waste of time.  Surely it’s just time spent in narcissism, painting our faces and wearing the best new clothes in an effort to look better than the next person?  Surely we have too high an opinion of ourselves to even begin in the first place, and this is emphasized in the fact that we continually spend our money to achieve such an aim? Pexels Not so.  In fact, what was mentioned above could not be more wrong.  Fashion and beauty are…

If you ever get a little bored of wearing the same old trusty outfits or rocking the same old style you’ve always rocked, then mixing up your style could be the way forward.  Sometimes, when we wear things we wouldn’t usually go for, it can really open up our minds and change our perspective on what we consider to be “our style.” You can be whoever you want from day to day.  Be a hippie today and a sharp business woman tomorrow.  Wear the clothes that make you feel the way you want to feel.…

This morning, I hit an all time low. I was applying my makeup, getting ready for the day and all of a sudden I remembered I did not brush my teeth. I can’t believe it. I blame the lack of sleep and everything on my mind other than dental hygiene. As you can tell by this situation, I am a typical busy, scattered brain college girl. I hate to admit this but it seems like when I am crunched for time, my skincare routine suffers. I’d rather use my time responding to emails, writing blog…

One of the many things on my summer bucket list was to go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to see their exciting fashion exhibit, Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology. Luckily, a few weeks ago I had the chance to explore the exhibit and the entire museum. I was blown away by how extensive the exhibit was. The exhibit includes over 170 ensembles, showing that fashion is more than just dressing but truly an art form. Each piece showcased in the exhibit highlighted the connection between technology and fashion. I enjoyed…

Denim. According to Webster’s dictionary, denim is defined as a “strong usually blue cotton cloth that is used especially to make jeans.” Skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans, flared jeans, jean jackets, jean shorts, denim skirts, jean shirts, and so on. It would be hard to imagine the world without denim or our favorite pair of jeans (you know ladies that pair you have in your dresser that’s your go to and make you feel confident and have people staring). When I was thinking of a post to write I wanted to put away my camera and…

I was known as the little girl with the mushroom haircut.  Perfectly pin straight hair that reached just about to my ears.  For years, I rocked the mushroom cut but I no longer sport that style because thankfully I’ve been introduced to a blow dryer, a round brush, and volumizing hair products.  But these days, I still like my short hair, but that was not always the case.  Over the years I went from the mushroom cut, to long flowing hair, to taking a risk and cutting off 14 inches to a pixie cut, and…

 Almost a month into the new year and 2016 is off to a good start. Hope everyone is still sticking to their new years resolution. Today’s post will be short and sweet because there really is no need for a lengthy explanation. I am so excited to announce that I have partnered with 23 other bloggers to provide our readers with an amazing giveaway. I believe every year should start off strong and there is no better way than celebrate a new year and a new beginning than with a giveaway. One lucky reader will…

After a week of exams, writing lengthy final papers, and sleepless nights, a month-long break from college life is very much needed.  I can’t believe I’ve been home for a month. It has been nice catching up on sleep, hanging with the family, and spending more time on my blog.  However, my life at school is so different than life at home.  I find myself having more free time, and if you are a person like me who can’t sit still, I need to keep myself busy. Over my month-long break; I have kept myself…
