When I got my first job when I was fifteen I really had nothing to spend money on, so I became queen of the makeup. I bought eyeshadows in every color imaginable, nine different mascara formulas, and enough lipgloss to last a life time. I was swimming in makeup and my house was the go to place to get ready for dances because I had enough to go around. Since then I have become much less high maintenance and I stick to a basic routine saving me time and money. Most days I don’t bother with makeup (because I hate taking it… View Post

Depending where you live, you may no longer be striving for that perfect ‘bikini body.’ With fall approaching quickly (a little too quickly, if you ask me.) it’s easy to fall into a fitness slump, considering you can hide behind bulky sweaters and layers upon layers of clothing.

Like many little girls, I dreamt of growing up to be a disney princess. I most identified with the clever and sweet Belle, perhaps it was because of my big brown eyes and dark hair, or maybe it was because Beauty in the Beast would play in my house on a loop, so often that my brother begged my mom to name me Beauty.
