August Goals.

These goals focus on simple, yet important plans that will keep me busy during my mostly month off of work. There is none of that “change yourself” or “restrict yourself” or “do this even if it makes you less happy” type stuff that I really don’t need in my life right now on this list. There are a few…

Plans for August 2016.

Hey everyone! As July wraps up, it’s hard to believe that summer is rushing by so quickly. This week I am finishing up my last few days teaching summer school and am about to begin my 26 day summer “vacation”. Those quotes are very prominent because my break is already jam packed with doctor appointments, friend…

ColourPop Haul.

Metallic lipsticks and glosses are probably one of the newest and hottest makeup products on the market right now.

Woah, slow down.

I wish this was a January goals/new years resolutions post. But it’s not. I don’t know what this is. It just came out.   I recently have “returned” from my first, real blogging break. I posted about my little adventures I took over my holiday and acted as if I was back. But to be…

Guest Post // New Year’s Resolutions

Around this time of the year, I sit in my room and flip through my journal. Curled into the covers of my bed, I read over old diary entries, small notes, lists, and poetry. I see names repeat entry after entry only to see them disappear entirely after a few more. As I turn the pages,…
