The deep winter is finally here and, although I love winter, January always feels like the longest month. It’s cold, dark, and you’re never really sure what’s going on. Plus, you’re coming off the last two months of holiday hype and realizing you have no money and a whole bunch of things to do that you put off because of the holidays.
It’s been a hot minute since I posted anything makeup related because I haven’t really been buying anything new lately. But I thought it would be a fun idea to show y’all what I’ve been loving this year.
One of the most important things that you can do for your body is having a solid skincare routine. I’ve been testing different products and routines for a couple years now, but I’ve finally found one that works incredibly well for my skin.
As I’m sitting here typing this post there are flurries outside my window…in mid-March. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m so over it and ready to for flowers to start growing, windows open, and wearing cute spring outfits again. It feels like the winter is never ending! Regardless, I’m determined to make it feel like spring as much as I can until the weather catches on.
The bitterly, cold season of winter weather is finally upon Chicago. I actually prefer colder weather over the hotter weather, so it's no secret that winter and fall are my favorite seasons, and in my opinion, are the best seasons for clothes because they're cute, comfortable, and cozy - and unfortunately expensive.
There is an incredible misconception about what being a feminist means. It’s all too often thought of as being a dirty word or a man-hating agenda – all which are far from the truth. Simply put, being a feminist is the equality among the sexes socially, politically, legally, and economically.
I never used to be big into the law of attraction, or things like actually writing down my goals. But more than half of my new year’s goals involved getting closer to my dream life, and whatever I was doing in the past just wasn’t cutting it; I knew I had to try different methods.
There’s something nice about being up early and knowing that half the world isn’t even out of bed yet. When I was in high school, I hated the mornings and would cut it extremely close when it came to running for the bus – especially my senior year. Now that I’ve been in college for almost two years now, I have grown to like the mornings especially when I don’t have class until the afternoon.
I used to like to pretend that I’m not super into Valentine’s Day because, on one hand, I do believe you should show your love for the people in your life every day. But, on the other hand, I’m an ‘extra’ kind of person and, honestly, I love days where I can shower people with my love and appreciation for them.
Something that has really peaked my interest in the last couple months is why I am the way that I am. I know some of the aspects to that question lie in my anxiety, but there were just somethings about myself that I couldn’t explain to people or even myself.
As Christmas draws closer and closer, it’s obviously time to begin your holiday baking. So, for the eighth day of 12 Days of Christmas, that’s exactly what we’re going to do! This is not my own recipe, this is from Tanya Burr’s Tanya Bakes recipe book.
