Attaining a Positive Body Image

Attaining a Positive Body Image

I have an eerily vivid memory of my young self  trying on shorts in The Children’s Place. My family was going on vacation to Disney World with my cousins, and my mom wanted to pick up a few new outfits for my sister and I before we left. I turned to my mother, and told her that my legs were too big for me to be wearing shorts. In this moment, my ignorance to body image was gone.  Continue reading “Attaining a Positive Body Image”

Becca Backlight Filter Face Primer Review

Becca Backlight Filter Face Primer Review

A few weeks ago, I picked up the Becca Backlight Filter Face Primer at Sephora, and have been  religiously using it ever since. I had heard great things about this product from my sister and from various reviews online, and needed to see how it worked for myself. After using this primer for several weeks, I think I have an understanding of how this product works, and hope that this review is helpful to those of you who are considering purchasing it!

Finding Balance

Finding Balance

I used to want to be the girl who had it all together. I wanted to be the  girl with a 4.0 GPA, who worked out every day, involved herself in 12 different clubs, and managed to look flawless while doing it all. Yes, I used to want to be that girl, but lately, I’ve been pretty damn proud of  who I’ve actually been. That might sound a little strange to say, because people don’t say kind words about themselves very often, but I think I have this whole Junior year of college thing down. Regardless of your grade level, you can be proud of the person you actually are too, and find the balance you’ve been searching for. Here’s how!   Continue reading “Finding Balance”

Craving Fall

Craving Fall

Okay, okay, I know what you’re thinking, “It’s only September 4th, why on earth are you wearing a sweater?” Fall is just around the corner, people, and it has been pretty chilly here in North Carolina. I will admit, I was a little warm the day I wore this outfit, but I didn’t care all that much because I loved it, and it got me inspired.  Hopefully, my post, along with the release of the PSL (you’re welcome), will help to get you as excited I am for the best season there is! Enjoy, ladies!  Continue reading “Craving Fall”

Low Calorie Snacks for College Students

Low Calorie Snacks for College Students

Weight. It’s crazy that one little word could spark one million different conversations, opinions, and stories. There are people who are comfortable with their weight, people who struggle with their weight, and people who think of “weight” as just another word. Quite honestly, I have been through hell in the weight department, and I sometimes dread coming back to school, because I fear putting on a little bit of extra weight. This year is different, however, and I am about to tell you why. Continue reading “Low Calorie Snacks for College Students”

How to Survive Long Distance

How to Survive Long Distance

I used to think that long distance was stupid. I never understood why you’d want to try to make something work with someone when you never could see them anyway. I used to try to convince my friends that it was a bad idea to be with someone who didn’t live close by, until it happened to me. Continue reading “How to Survive Long Distance”

Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick Review

Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick Review

There has been a lot of hype over the past few months about the Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick. I had watched several reviews on this foundation, and after seeing the way it looked on other people, I decided to try it out for myself. The foundation is described on Sephora.com as “a long-wearing foundation stick with the coverage of a concealer, fluidity of a liquid, and weightlessness of a powder for invisible, full coverage.” This description seemed like music to my ears, but  does this foundation live up to its promises?
