DIY At Home Spa Day

My First Tattoo!

This is one of the most exciting videos I’ve ever made for my channel. I’ve anted a tattoo for as long as I could remember and I’m so glad that I got to document the experience and the excitement I felt right after I got this. In this vide I give advice about pain, price, how to prepare and location for those of you that might not have a tattoo but want one. Enjoy and don’t forget to subscribe!

I’m Back!

Happy new year everyone! January has been a long month full of ups and downs, self reflection, new beginnings, starting overs, and a lot of goals (and the year just started!). This year I want to be my most authentic self and find out who that person really is. I will be documenting all of my most memorable experiences on this blog this year and I can’t wait to share it with you all, and to look back on it later.

See you soon

How to Part with Old Clothes

If you’re anything like me, you’re really sentimental. With everything. Sadly, everything includes material things, and this is why it was and still is so hard for me to get rid of clothing. For example, a shirt I wore to my first concert might not fit me anymore and might be old and ratty but will I be willing to keep it? Of course.

It took me a while to realize that how sad this was. That I was clinging on to things I no longer needed or wanted, but kept them for the sake of a memory. So if you’re currently having the same problem that I had, here is a list of a few things I asked myself before I parted with old clothes.

  1. Do I still wear it? 
  2. Will I ever wear it again?
  3. Why am I holding on to this?
  4. Does it even still fit me? 
  5. Where am I going to put it?

If you answered “No” or “I don’t know” to these questions, simply get rid of it! There’s no reason to hoard, and so many new and fresh pieces are coming out every season that you can’t make space for because you are holding on to things that you have no use for anymore. Letting go of clothing and keeping only your favorite stuff is so refreshing and gives you so much space to play around with new fashion trends, ideas, etc.

How to INSTANTLY Transform Your Outfit

Transforming a basic outfit into a stylish masterpiece doesn’t need to be difficult or expensive. Over the years I’ve figured out how to make my outfits look so over the top that people ask me where I shop numerous times, and when I say “Forever 21 & Zara” they’re so surprised. The difference is that I can stay in a store for 2 hours going through every single shelf and clothing rack making sure I don’t miss any unique and expensive looking pieces. I’ve decided to share with you a few of my go-to pieces to transform my look (affordably) so here are the pieces I use to look stylish, featuring some affordable options.

Bandaged Up

I wish I lived a glamorous life and could tell you that this was an OOTD, but it’s actually apart of a photoshoot I did for my job. I am wearing Herve Leger, which is a designer that I’ve admired for so long but could simply not afford so it was a privilege to wear this beautiful piece.

Hey Babes!

For this outfit of the day I paired a casual t-shirt dress with a wrap belt and block heels to create a casual chic look. This is definitely a go-to daytime to night time look, or even a quick and easy work look.
