Apartment Must Haves

Hi Loves,

Finding a place to live is a hard and timely process. The reason it is so timely is because you have to find the perfect place for yourself. Think about it – the home you choose will be the place you are living in for a decent amount of time, so it has to be a place that you love. If you come up with a checklist of “must-haves” that you are looking for, it can be an easier (and faster) process! Today, I want to share with you my list of top things to look for in your next apartment!

Summer Bucket List 2017

Hi Loves,

It’s Summer! Well not officially, but in the sense that school is out and I have more time to do all the fun things I’ve been meaning to do. Every Summer I love making a bucket list of to do  spare time I have during these the three months. Sometimes it’s a long list but sometimes it’s just a few things I’ve been dying to get to.

Let’s get into it!

London 2017 Photo Journal

Hi Loves,

My #SpringBreak2017 has officially ended, and instead of going to some warm tropical place and getting a tan like most people would do, I went across the pond to London. If you don’t know my best friend is studying in London and she was kind enough to let me stay with her and show me all of her favorite spots in London. By the end of my week I’d fallen in love with London and the English country side. I will definitely have to go back, if not to see my friend again, then for the AMAZING Indian food!

On to the photos:

My Valentine

Hi Loves,

It’s Valentine’s Day and I want to be my own Valentine! I honestly love Valentine’s Day even though I’m painfully single right now. Valentine’s Day has always been one of those days I can’t help but celebrate because I have so many people in my life I love and am grateful for. This year I want to focus on the people in my life I love, including myself! Self love is SO important and at this time of year I’m giving myself an extra dose of it. Continue reading

Shell Jewelry Holder DIY

 

Hi Loves,

I know it sounds silly, but I’ve had dreams of being a mermaid since I was 4 years old. Growing up I always lived next to some kind of water, my first house had a natural waterfall in the back yard and I used to play under it all the time. I’ve always had some connection to water, it relaxes me and makes me feel safe. Last spring break I went down to my Grandmother’s place in Florida and spent some time fishing, kayaking, and taking long walks down to the jetty. Of course I’m one of those people who collects shells while walking down the beach with the hopes of doing some cool DIY projects. Well I’ve finally gathered all the materials I need to do this DIY so let’s do it!

Lip Tips and Tricks

Hi Loves,

My lips are one of my favorite features on my face, so I like to take good care of them. Does this mean I have excessive amounts of lip products? Yes it does. Does this mean that I can give you some good reviews of different lip products? Yes it does! I am currently using 16 lip balms. I know that’s a bit much, but I actually go through lip products quite quickly. I always have one in a jacket pocket, at least one in each of my purses and backpacks, and then a few throughout my room that I can grab easily and throw on before leaving the house. I also have unopened backups that I’m waiting to open until I get down to at least 7 lip balms if not less.  Continue reading

Battle of the Face Masks

Hi Loves,

Even though this has been a very odd winter thus far the wind has not been great for my skin. I realized that I’ve collected a few different face masks recently that all look amazing, so I’ve decided to pin them against each other to see which one I like the best. So here is what you need to know about my skin before we get into this. I have combination skin, oily T zone, but my cheeks and around my mouth tend to get very dry. I use the Ponds moisturizer almost every night after I wash my face, but I won’t be using that after these masks unless the instructions direct me to use a moisturizer after. All of these products are available at Sephora and I will have links and prices below.I tried a different mask each night over 4 days to see how they felt, what they smell like, and how they changed my skin (if at all).

The first mask I tried was the Sephora brand Algae Sleeping Mask. I was not sure how it would work, it feels like a gel and had a blue tint to it, and it smells like plants but in a good way. Continue reading
