    Not Your Average Love Letters: Letter #2: Is Long Distance too hard to Uphold?

    Happy Wednesday! Grab a cup of coffee and get cozy, because we are talking about love. I thought I’d post today since everyone needs a little pick me up to get through the rest of the week! This is the second letter in “Not your Average Love Letters” series, which is about my boyfriend and I’s relationship as we walk through life together, and the challenges we face. More importantly, however, it’s too help other people who have questions about the topics I talk about! I wish there would have been more blog posts that would answer my questions about relationships, and so I hope this series can help you!…

    Not Your Average Love Letters. Letter 1: Never Get Burned By the Same Flame?

    I decided to start the series “Not Your Average Love Letters” because I feel like Love is such a hard and confusing emotion, but it can also be the most amazing. People think it’s supposed to be this perfect, easy feeling to navigate. I’m here to tell you that it’s not. You will fight, get confused, you will get hurt feelings sometimes, but that only makes up about 10% of the relationship. Honestly, my boyfriend is my best friend, we tell each other everything, and we get into arguments. However, we always make up, because we love each other. You each need to give 100:100 of each other because you…

    Why I love the Summer Sun.

    Do you daydream about drinking mango and strawberry smoothies on the beach, while the sun is out and it is above 80 degrees ( my perfect weather basically being anything above 75-90 degrees 🙂 ). I know I do! While growing up in this frozen tundra, or more commonly known as the Midwest, I have gotten to to appreciate the 5 months (if we are lucky) of nice weather (AKA above 75!)  🙂 When I think of summer I think of: Long drives with the music loud and all the windows open The sun shining on all the treetops Setting up a hammock and taking a nap or reading a…

    Clean Brushes. Happy Brushes.

    Well one thing I have learned through my growing love of makeup, is that it is so hard to clean my brushes. I am going to be honest, people say to clean them every week or so, I used to clean mine once twice a year. Gross! I know. I’m ashamed to say it. I have tried many different brush cleaners, some low-end and some high-end. I have firmly agreed that Baby shampoo is hands down the best. It is super cleansing and gets all my brushes squeaky clean in a matter of minutes!! Johnson’s Baby Shampoo is not harsh-as it is made for a baby’s skin- in other words…

    My Top 10 Favorite Beauty Products: High-End

    “Love yourself and everything else falls into Line” When I was younger, I always thought ‘who would spend $40 on makeup!?’ little did that lip smacker wearing girl know that she would be one of many women that willingly hand out all their cash for new makeup, which is awesome! However, as I grew up I needed better products that wouldn’t break me out! Even though I don’t have the money or budget for this hobby of trying all the ‘New’ makeup (lol shout out to college tuition, for sucking up all my money✌🏻Live love college . . . ) Anyway, Moving on. . . Here are my tried and…

    Ribbons, Scarves, Bandanas; Oh MY!

    This summer has some awesome trends, focusing on hair and scarves! It is simple, yet looks like you spent hours in front of the mirror perfecting it. However, it only took you 2 minutes! What I used was to create my look were 1 to 2 plastic hair ties, either a bandana, a scarf, or a ribbon! You can also use the scarves when your hair is down as well! It is super easy and it keeps your hair out of your face Here are some of the awesome pictures I have found for inspiration: *Disclaimer: These Photos Are not my own I found them on Pinterest, to just show…
