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…

I am certain that everyone has experienced sadness, disappointment, lack of motivation, and so on. It’s only natural, we are human. I am a big fan of quotes. Whenever I feel stuck or down in the dumps I always head to Pinterest (CLICK HERE TO FOLLOW ME ON PINTEREST) and find some inspiring words and phrases to help me keep going. This brings me to the theme of today’s post. It was inspired by one of my recently discovered quotes “No matter how you feel, get up, dress up, show up, and never give up.”…

When YouTube was my main platform, one of my favorite videos to film was my monthly favorites. I always looked forward to the end of any month to collect all of my favorite products and review them for my viewers. If you want to catch a glimpse of a younger Liv in one of my Youtube videos, click here. It is always fun to take a trip back to the past. Anyway back to the present. It didn’t occur to me until one of my blogging brainstorm sessions that I should bring my monthly favorites…

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…

Last year, my very first post on my blog was my round up of the best and worst dressed from the Golden Globes, so it is tradition to share my thoughts on this year’s fashion at the Golden Globes. My fashion senses were tingling on Sunday while watching the 73rd Golden Globes Award Show.  Next to Christmas, my favorite time of the year has to be award season.  Nothing beats watching the celebrities strut on the red carpet while wearing elaborate gowns. For the most part, every celebrity stunned in their designer dresses and set…

Dear 2015, Thanks for an amazing year. A year filled with ups and downs. A year filled with successes and fails. A year filled with challenges. But most importantly a year filled with lessons. I am very hopeful for 2016, but before I enter into the new year, I want to reflect on 2015 and what I learned. 1. Be present I have always heard to live in the moment, to stop and look, and take time to reflect. However, it was not until this autumn, I knew the real meaning of those phrases. The…

On Christmas morning, I woke up to a Christmas tree surrounded by gifts and the love from my dad, mom, sister, and of course my puppy brother Griffin. That morning, my family and I exchanged gifts, but most importantly we exchanged laughter and love. Christmas day is pretty low key. Ever since I could remember, Christmas day has always been hosted at my house. I am so lucky that my family all lives so close, so we can all celebrate the joyous day together. Although, I was in the comfort of my own home, I…

The title of this blog post is very misleading because I have been anything but bundled up the past few days.  The East Coast is experiencing the warmest December ever.  I’ve only worn my winter coat once, but like I said in my previous post, I am not complaining. I have no desire to see snow or bear the frigid temperatures of a normal northeast winter.  Although, it has been warmer than usual, it is still cold enough to wrap myself up in my favorite blanket scarf. The plaid blanket scarf trend has exploded this…

Alleluia!  Finals are over!  Yesterday I handed in my last final and officially completed my first semester of junior year.  Like always, the semester flew.  I can’t believe I only have three more semesters until graduation.  Such a scary thought.  My fall semester was very fun until you come back from Thanksgiving break and you realize you have three seven page papers due and two finals to take the following week. Luckily, I did survive and manage to complete all my assignments on time but I could not have done it without coffee and my Out…

Hooray for the poncho trend, which comes in handy for those crisp, fall mornings when you just feel like showing up to class wrapped in a warm comfy blanket. A poncho is basically a warm piece of fabric that drapes across your body. It’s hard to find something more comfy, cozy, and stylish than a poncho. It’s so easy to style your poncho with jeans or leggings, a simple long-sleeve shirt, boots, and minimal jewelry. You’ll look like you’re walking down the runway, when in reality you did not want to leave your bed that…

Daylight saving time has really hit me hard. And, in case you didn’t know it is “saving” not “savings.” It’s been a week and I still can’t get used to the time change. Walking back from class at five o’clock and it is pitch black outside really makes me long for spring. Plus, by like seven o’clock I am so ready for bed. I guess this only means one thing…the winter is coming! It was such a beautiful day so I could not let the day pass without going outside to take a few photos.…

Nothing is better than escaping college life by getting in the car, going off campus, and doing some shopping, even if it is by yourself. A few days ago I found out that retail therapy does exist. I was feeling a little down, and decided to pick myself up with something I love to do and that something is shopping. I was pretty bummed that nobody was around to go on a shopping trip with me, but what I found is that a little me time is just what I needed to overcome my blues.…

From bright green leaves to rich red leaves, from hot, humid days to crisp, chilly afternoons, from lightweight dresses to chunky sweaters, from strappy sandals to knee high boots… autumn days are here again. Hands down, autumn is my favorite season. I love the changing leaves, the cool air, the pumpkin spice lattes, and of course the fall fashion.  One thing that I don’t love about the month of October, the heart of the fall season, is midterms, which is why I have been so absent from my site.  Once October hits, I spend the…
