When I first started my blog in 2012, it wasn't for follows. In fact, I didn't even know that people could follow me until the topic came up during a job interview in which I wore heels that were probably too high and a face that was likely too made up! It wasn't about sponsored… Continue reading When Blogging Gets You #InYourFeelings, Remember Why You Started! ๐Ÿ™‡๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’ป

Athleisure Wear: Trend or Lifestyle? #fashionfridays

The first time I was introduced to the athleisure trend, I was less than impressed to say the least. Just another trend started by celebrities with access to too much money and stylists to be dressing crazy. I mean can you blame me?

When Beauty Meets Pain in an Off-the-Shoulder Boohoo Dress ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€

Ever since my college days, online shopping has been my preference. Heck, as a college student with no car, staying on campus in a small town, it was virtually my only option!
