This weekend I got to do one of the coolest things I have ever done. I took off on what I dubbed my ‘big girl adventure’ and rode the train up to Chicago (by myself!) to walk in College Fashion Week. I have so many interesting stories from the trip, so bare with me if this post is long! On the train I met a lovely woman named Rosemary, who told me she was 83. She had grown up in Chicago and told me all about her childhood there and gave me recommendations about must see locations, where the best food is, and on… View Post

As promised, I am updating my goals list so I can share my progress with all of you! If you missed my last post, I presented you with a list of my top five goals to accomplish during my sophomore year of college. I am about two and a half months in now, and thought this would be a great time to check in! Buy a DSLR and learn how to use it. So….I said this one would be done by October 13th, or three days ago. And I’ve run into a little bit of a roadblock with this one. I have… View Post

In order to start experimenting with some of the latest hair trends, I got… View Post

Hello everyone! I apologize as it’s been a week since my last post, but I’m making up for it by posting a goodie that I’ve been working on for quite a while: How do I make money blogging? The question bloggers everywhere ask themselves and one that I am finally figuring out the answer to. I am going to share the tips and tricks that I personally use, though I myself have only reached the tip of the iceberg. I am going to share with you the experiences that I have had and the resources I use to make money from this… View Post

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
