The Most “Fitting” Thanksgiving Look

Hey guys! I don’t know about you, but I change about a hundred times before deciding on my official Thanksgiving outfit of the year. I know it’s stupid because no one remembers stuff like that, but it really stresses me out!   Trying to find the happy medium between being warm, stylish, festive, and comfortable has had me spinning every single year, but this year I think I’m going to try a new tactic- pants that stretch, a Fall-colored top, a cute cardigan for extra warmth, and boots or flats for the shoes.   If you’re like me and find…

Bath Time Beauty Basics

Hey guys! How many bath-lovers do we have out here? I know I’m one! Taking a bath is one of my favorite relaxing activities and, believe it or not, I actually like bathing more for relaxation purposes than for personal hygiene.   For years I’ve used baths to ease my anxiety and de-stress from long, tiring days, but I also enjoy taking baths when I want to pamper myself with beauty products!   A nice, long bath is the perfect time to lay back, relax, and treat yourself to some hair and skin treatments, so today I’m going to share…

Dry Skin For Dummies

Dry skin can be a tough foe, especially when you’ve never struggled with it before. I was a teenager back when my first skin issues started, so my parents and I were scrambling all over trying to find solutions.   My skin was literally peeling off my face on a daily basis. It was a nightmare! Sadly, this went on for years because, as hard as we tried, we never found any viable solutions to my problem.   It wasn’t until I was 15 that I finally started finding some products and tricks that eventually helped to eliminate my problem…

3 Makeup Looks Perfect for Fall

Happy fall, everyone!!! This is my favorite season of the year. It’s just so cozy and makes me feel warm inside. Well, that may actually be because of all the coffee I drink in the but same difference, right?!   Another reason I love Fall is because of the makeup. All of the gold, burgundy, and deep browns in the palettes are to die for.     Since it’s already been out for awhile, I’m going to do all 3 of my looks using the Morphe Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette in the hopes that some of you have it already!…

Summer to Fall: Transition Your Wardrobe for Cheap

Hi everyone!! I can’t tell you how happy I am that the temperature is finally in the seventies. I kid you not, my car showed temperatures of 113 degrees Fahrenheit this summer, so it’s definitely time for a break from the unrelenting Dallas heat.   It is slightly difficult, however, to adjust my wardrobe to the temperature change and it’s even harder to do it on a budget. I feel like I spent the whole summer trying to scrape up some money to buy as many shorts, tank tops, and sandals as possible, just so I could survive. Now, here…

Being bloated has become “fat” and the term “plus size” starts being applied once you hit size 10.   It’s an absolute travesty that women are being conditioned to believe weighing 150 pounds means that they’ve let things go too far.   My Personal Image Experience   Let me tell you something. I was 108 pounds when I graduated high school and in the two years it took for me to turn 20, I gained 45 pounds. Not only…

Dying your hair can be a whole lot of fun! It can also be therapeutic to some people by giving them the feeling they are getting a new start or transitioning into a new season of  life.   Unfortunately, dying your hair isn’t as fun for your hair as it is for you. It has consequences such as your hair thinning, breaking, splitting, and being really frizzy. So, when I asked my hair stylist to take me platinum, she was definitely a little wary…   Thankfully, I’ve had some really great hair stylists over the years who’ve helped me create…
