This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Devine Color by Valspar . All opinions are 100% mine. It’s always been important to me to feel happy with my surrounding, so I spend a lot of time trying to curate spaces that bring me peace. Whether that’s my bedroom or office, I want to make sure that I’m putting my best foot forward each day by placing myself in positive environments. I realized when I was young that my space affects my mental and emotional space more than anything else, so my room has always reflected that. With… View Post

As I’ve grown older, I’ve been focusing on investing in timeless fashion pieces that I won’t have to replace after a year. One area I’d been seriously lacking in is jewelry. I’m the queen of buying $3 dollar rings and $10 dollar necklaces. The problem? They’re beautiful but after a few wears they turn copper and give my skin a green tinge. I’ve recently bought myself a nice quality rings and have been gifted some delicate necklaces. What I’m lacking was statement jewelry. I recently had the opportunity to collaborate with Sequin Jewelry and try out a few of their pieces… View Post

I love Halloween. I’m 100% unashamed of that fact. I trick-or-treated until way past the “socially acceptable” age, love Hocus Pocus with all of my heart, and am all about ghouls and ghosts and goblins. Another thing I love? DIY-ing costumes. It’s infinitely more fun for me to get creative and come up with a fun costume with Halloween Makeup and clothes I already own than pick something up at the Halloween store. I have a few Halloween posts coming this year, but I wanted to kick things off by polishing up this post that was originally published in 2015… View Post

Growing up, I spent hours on YouTube watching MeganHeartsMakeup and JuicyStar07 all whilst cursing my awkwardness and my lack of natural charisma that seemed necessary to make it on YouTube. The idea of being a YouTuber seemed glamorous and exciting. The execution? Not so much. Secret time: When I was fourteen I actually had a beauty YouTube channel. It was top secret and 10/10 embarrassing. It didn’t last long, though. I got to my first 1,000 subscribers and then I was terrified that people from school would find out so I put all of my videos on private and slunk away into… View Post

Let me brag for just a second: My skin is the best it’s been in months. I don’t have a single active breakout on my face (though I’ve got about a dozen marks from healing spots). This is coming after a 3 month period of lots of travel, little sleep, and more acne than I’ve had in my life. I’ve played around a lot with anti-acne products the past few months, and am thrilled by the results. My anti-acne skincare routine was a work in progress but I’ve finally narrowed down some of the best acne-clearing, radiance boosting products. My personal… View Post
