    Dressing for Spring when it’s still cold

    Spring Fever is here! I know its not even March yet and it snowed here in the Midwest 3 days ago; but we have also been getting an insane amount of rain and with that all the snow is gone and (hopefully!) so is winter. Today I want to share with you my favorite outfit to wear when I want to feel like spring when the weather is still cold. Light colors, guys I am the queen of black. I’m talking my entire hamper is sometimes all black clothing I have a problem with only buying clothes in black. But lately I have been trading in the dark clothing for…

    Valentine’s day in a Long distance relationship

    Alright guys the day of the year has come; while I usually do not partake in Valentines day festivities this year I had a change of heart and decided that I really freaking love Valentines day. (Idk why y’all I’m feeling the love) So while I usually don’t mind my long-distance relationship its these types of days where I hate it a lot. Instead of being smugly in love this year I am spending my Wednesday night alone, probably eating my weight in conversation hearts. So instead of spending hours reading every couples Instagram post professing their love to each other (no hate because I’m definitely one of them @Calamari.el)…

    What I learned from my first heartbreak

    The first time I fell in love with a boy I was 17 and a junior in High School. For the sake of this article I will just call him C.

We dated for almost a year before he packed up and headed to University in the fall. We planned to stay together despite the distance until I joined him in four months and we really did believe that our love for each other was enough to withstand…

    How to beat the snow day blues

    As most Midwesterners can attest it appears to be a never-ending winter. While winter storm Liam has pushed everyone inside to avoid the tundra I have been exploring things to do other than reminiscing about summer. Read that book that’s been on your shelf for a year Ya know that book your coworkers have been raving about? The one you ordered and vowed to read but never got around to it because there was always something better to do? Well break it out and get to reading because snowy days inside are best when you can escape to a world that (hopefully) isn’t as cold. You won’t have to worry…

    Bronze and brows

      Has anyone else felt like January has been 4 months long all on its own? I seriously feel like I have been in this month forever! Maybe I’m crazy y’all. With the cold months dragging on and summer feeling even further away I have been seeking out the perfect look without spending tons of money on spray tans and Sephora. I dread the winter months for many reasons but one of the top ones is that my skin turns pasty and pale (No offense to other people who share this lovely trait) I just feel like I look tired and sick all season. This year for the first time…
