4 TV Characters Who Inspired My Style

4 TV Characters Who Inspired My Style

Personal style seems like something of an anomaly. Being bombarded by different aesthetics through the media used to make me question whether my style was personal of just a derivate of what I saw on screens. I’ve come to learn that personal style is personal, because it’s what I choose to wear and how I […]

Closet Confessional: Quality Over Quantity

Closet Confessional: Quality Over Quantity

I remember the first time I saw an H&M. I was walking through the Forum Shops at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. As I passed one designer shop after another, I fawned over the textured fabrics, the intricate details and the careful designs. Since moving to a small town six years prior, the closest I […]

Dyed with Pink, Brushed with Confidence

Dyed with Pink, Brushed with Confidence

It’s ironic that one small change to the outside can initiate a revolution on the inside. At least, that’s what happened for me. I might catwalk around like the key to confidence was a birthright, but, truth be told, I’m totally insecure. Everywhere I go, I feel like all eyes are on me, and it’s […]

Never Let Social Anxiety Stop You from Going to the Salon

During my freshman year in high school, social anxiety hitched a permanent ride in my mind.

Fishnets are the New Black

Fishnets are the New Black

Fishnet tights have long been regarded as only for the sexy, only for those women who represent the unattainable ideal of the moment. Take flappers in the 1920s who wore fishnets on stage. Look at pin-up girls in the 1950s, like Marilyn Monroe and Bettie Page, who relied on fishnets for many shoots. In the […]

Five Tips for a Flawless Instagram Feed

Five Tips for a Flawless Instagram Feed

I’ll start by saying I am far from a famous blogger with a “perfect” Instagram feed. I’ll also note that there is no such thing as a “perfect” Instagram feed. Some people filter all their photos to the extreme, including only select colors and neutrals. Others put heavy color filters over everything. There’s nothing wrong […]

My Fruit Diet Drove Me Bananas

My Fruit Diet Drove Me Bananas

If you’ve never heard of Freelee the Banana Girl, this may come as a shock. Freelee is a vegan YouTube sensation, but she’s far from the person who encourages a balanced vegan diet that includes Oreos good for the soul and oatmeal good for the body. She’s one of the brains behind Raw Till 4 […]
