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.”…

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…

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.…

Boring outfits are so last season. I love taking simple pieces and adding fun accessories turning my outfit from drab to fab. Today’s post highlights my new colorful bag from Upcycled Styles.

This registered Thai company upholds and follows a Fair Labor and Child Labor policy. Upcycled Styles strives to promote ethical working conditions to make sure each of their workers have access to…

Who needs a boyfriend when you have a pair of fabulous jeans? Sadly, there’s no man in my life; however, I am in a committed relationship with my new boyfriend jeans from Madewell. It wasn’t until recently, I jumped on the boyfriend jeans bandwagon. It seems like the skinny jean trend has died out. Now all the buzz is about slouchy, shapeless jeans. Every time I try on a pair of boyfriend jeans, I feel stupid and out of place; however that changed when I took a risk and bought a pair of boyfriend jeans.…

Since I spend most of my days and nights working on my blog, visiting my favorite fashion blogs, reading about the latest trends, and of course online shopping, my style is constantly changing. I have been inspired to step out of my comfort zone and experiment with different styles, patterns, and colors. Enter this bright, colorful dress. Before we say goodbye to summer and we start dressing in more dark colors, I decided to find a fun, colorful summer dress. Thanks to this spaghetti strapped tie-dye print dress from the online store Zaful, I was…

We think of a key as an instrument of openings and closings. This small object, usually made of metal, can also symbolize mystery and curiosity. The key introduced in this post isn’t used to open my car, or my house, or any door for that matter, but instead it’s used to accessorize one of my favorite outfits. Recently, I connected with Deena Saracino, who created the brand La Cle (which means Key in French). I love supporting fellow entrepreneurs and La Cle’s motto “look good, feel good, and do good with one single piece of…

Happy July. It seems like it takes forever for summer to arrive, but when it does, it just flies by. Hope everyone is enjoying the summer. Today’s post highlights more of my summer style and how I’ve been styling some of my new purchases. Zara is my go to destination when they are having their annual sale. It’s a HUGE sale where every piece of clothing is marked down and keeps getting marked down throughout the weeks. Working in the city this summer, I feel like I’ve become a real New Yorker and I seem…

Walking into your favorite clothing store, I am certain you will find an extensive selection of kimonos. Kimonos long, short, patterned, colorful and some maybe with fringe or tassels, so it’s safe to say you will find a kimono that will suit your personal style. I like to call kimonos the summer sweater. They aren’t as heavy as a sweater so you can wear them in the summer heat without dying of heatstroke. They’re just a light piece of fabric that perfectly drapes your body to complete any outfit. My favorite way to wear a…

On Sunday, May 3rd, I was able to take a much-needed break from studying for finals and took a trip to New York City. Most of my adventures to NYC are special, but this trip was extra special because I was attending my first ever The Makeup Show with my best friend, Christina, by my side. Coffee in hand, we both boarded the train at 9 A.M. and arrived in the city an hour later. The entire train ride, it felt like I had ants in my pants, or in my case my romper. I was…

Where did the time go? It’s hard to believe that I finished my last week of classes of my sophomore year of college. It’s been a good semester, filled with lots of fun and of course hard-work. I want to capture one last stylish outfit for what to wear to class before finals begin this week because then I will be living in leggings and t-shirts. For the most part, I like to look nice for my classes. Although, I am up early for my classes, I still get excited going through my closet and…
