When life gets boring…add color. As much as I stick to my neutral colors, I can’t help but to incorporate more color into my looks especially when I have been bombarded with the signs of spring…warm weather, sunshine, and the abundance of flowers. After all, the right pop of color in any look makes for the perfect statement. Lately, I’ve been really getting into thrift shopping and hitting up consignment shops, instead of the usual Forever 21. Something about these types of stores really get me excited because you never know what treasures you will find. Not to mention the great discounts too. With that being said, I am so happy I found thredUP, a one-stop shopping website where you will find a variety of clothing, shoes, and accessories at amazing prices. Just think of thredUP as a consignment shop offering thousands of high-quality, like-new, clothing items. I’ll bet you couldn’t tell that the star of this outfit, my tie-dye sweatshirt is from the high-end brand Vintage Havana. I’ll also bet you couldn’t tell that I got this item for under $20. All thanks to thredUP.             This outfit of mine has been on repeat. I’m convinced my whole campus…

I have been stressing for a week now over my first biology test of the semester.  I have not taken a physical science course since high school, so it makes sense why I am stressing.  Liv and science just doesn’t mix well.  After a night of studying, I finished my biology exam in 20 minutes.  The 50 multiple-choice questions were basic, so fingers crossed I hope I aced the test.          Since I finished my exam quickly, I had extra time in my schedule to relax before my next class, so what better way to relax than write a very short style post for you all.          It’s not a long post, since I have to get back to work and read Act 2 of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night (BORING).  I wanted to show you all what I normally wear to class.  I call it my campus style.  Usually the night before I mentally plan my outfit for the next day.  This way when my alarm goes off and I am still in a daze, I can rub my sleepy eyes and have some idea of what to wear for the day. I have sort of a “formula” in dressing for…

Hands down, one of my favorite things about being a blogger is discovering new shops and brands that offer unique items. I love having the power to share with my readers my style finds from lesser known stores and brands.          Ever since starting my blog, Etsy has become my best friend. For those who are not familiar with Etsy, it’s a website that acts as a marketplace for people to buy and sell unique goods. On Etsy, you can discover hundreds of boutiques selling handmade and vintage items; things you can’t find at your typical mall.          Recently, I stumbled across a special boutique on Etsy, CharlotteCoutureGlam. I had the pleasure to chat with Tiffany Griffith, the owner of CharlotteCoutureGlam. Tiffany uses jewelry making as her creative outlet. Her pieces emphasize semi-precious stones, gold and sterling silver chains, elaborate beading, and real leather. Each piece is very unique and trendy. She told me she gets most of her inspiration from the beautiful scenery of northern California, where she makes her home. Her jewelry is versatile and you will find many ways to incorporate her pieces as you accessorize your favorite outfit.          After chatting with Tiffany, she was kind…
