Solo is the Way to Go

[caption id="attachment_1864" align="aligncenter" width="404"] Photo: Pinterest[/caption] Dating these days isn't fun or glamorous. It’s tiring. I would rather binge-watch Criminal Minds than put on eyeliner and make small talk at a sushi restaurant. And I'm always down for sushi, ask any of my friends. Plus, seeing relationships fall apart doesn't persuade me to try and…

What Your Mind Loves: Lavender

Lavender has been at the forefront of my mind lately. Anything from candles to lotions, I can’t seem to get enough of this vibrantly-scented purple flower.

A Relaxing Night for One

Some nights, all I want to do is stay in and get that much-needed chill time that we all dream about. We all deserve a night devoted to ourselves to relax and relieve the continuously built-up stress in our lives. I love these nights so much that I decided to dedicate an…

Curly Hair, Don’t Care

“The best part about curls is that when you jump, they jump with you!” My 11-year old sister exclaimed. These words that my youngest sister uttered were ones that would have never come out of my mouth ten years, or even two years ago. Finding what sets you apart is difficult at that…

Haute Dog!

If I were a notable musician or actor attending an awards show, he's the designer I'd pick to design all of my attire. I'd probably end…

Tips for Treating Troublesome Skin

Ah, oily skin. Something we've all experienced at one point or another. Having oily skin is a constant battle between products that prevent breakouts and products that keep the skin matte. Sweating is seriously inevitable at a time like this, when it's 90 degrees all day, every day, but keeping oily skin…

But take a moment to imagine the metamorphosis of winter into spring. Everything begins to bloom and grow with each…

Writing Your Own Book

Life is simply a self-written book. You choose the main characters, the love interests, the enemies, the plot, and the clothing. I recently read something on Tumblr that said "Satisfaction in life starts with the main characters around you," and this idea really got me thinking about what the true meaning of satisfaction is. Of course, I'm happy…

goodbye Athens, hello LA

It’s my senior year of college and instead of traveling 3+ hours to Athens for fall semester, I took a 6+ hour plane ride to the Golden State. On my way to Los Angeles I had so many thoughts running through my mind, like “What am I doing? Why didn’t I…
