6 Years Later | Blogaversary Giveaway (Closed)

This is my first post of 2016! We all know I don’t make new year’s resolutions. It’s just not my thing. I try to live my life day to day. Every morning I wake up, I have another chance to accomplish any goal I put in front of myself. But, there is one thing I have been doing every January for the past six years, it’s celebrating my blog’s birthday (AKA blogaversary)! Since 2010, I have…

Christmas Casual

It’s no surprise that I love to dress as comfy as possible. Even when the holidays roll around I make sure that my festive outfits always reflect my personal style—which is pretty much comfy casual.

Physician’s Formula Eye Booster Instant Lash Extension Kit

When it comes to false lashes, where do I even start? I think they’re awesome, but for some reason I find it nearly impossible to put them on myself. Even the lashes with self-adhesive backing.

Pattern Play My Way

I’m still cautious when it comes to some styling adventures. But, I am trying. Inspired by all of the daring fashionistas out there—I attempted mixing patterns of two of my favorite accessories. You may have seen me wear this Kamali Kulture dress here…

Feeling Fall

We may be consumed with Christmas, but it’s still technically fall—and I’m definitely feeling it! Living in Los Angeles, you never really get a true fall season. But, I feel like the weather has already been different. So much, that it’s OK to pull out the wraps, tights, and ankle booties. All in my favorite fall colors of course!
