    Unapologetically Me

    Today is my one-year blogiversary! Big thank you to everyone who has read, liked, followed or interacted with my page in any way (also big shout out to my photographers!) – I’m so glad I decided to give blogging a shot! It’s been such a fun learning experience and I’m excited to see where it might lead to in the future. Earlier in the summer I was out with some friends for a girls night and wore an outfit which garnered a lot of attention. I was silly enough to not take any pictures that evening, but made a mental note to use it in one of my posts. So…

    The Mesh Movement

    Mesh garments are all the rage right now. I remember about a year ago I was in Urban Outfitters and tried on a sheer mesh top for the first time. Maybe it was the dim lighting in that dressing room or the strange cut of the shirt on my body, but I wasn’t completely sold on the style and passed on the purchase. But since that day the transparent trend has haunted me, showing up uninvited in my fashion dreams and on my Instagram feed. It was about time I gave it another go. You’ll see mesh garments make a strong appearance in several of my next posts. It was…

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango? Recently someone asked me “how would you describe your personal style?” and I thought hmm… I’m kind of all over the place. Generally I would say I’m trendy, a little edgy, sometimes glamarous and I love color. I like to try to push the boundaries of what’s socially acceptable when it comes to fashion and I’m not afraid to try new things. But it’s hard to say I fall into one fashion classification – in fact I tend to mix different pieces from various styles to create my very own classification (after all, I am part of the slash generation). With that being…

    Romwe Review & The Power of Advertisements

    How many times have you been browsing the web when an ad pops up on the side bar and, for some reason, you decide to click it? Well that happened to me several weeks ago. The ad that appeared featured the most adorable floral bralette for only $6.99, so I fell into temptation and went to the site (www.Romwe.com). That’s where I was drawn in even more. I’m a sucker for a fast-fashion deal. Yeah, it might mean that the products are cheap but that’s to be expected. Before I knew it, I had a shopping cart full of 25 items, with a grand total under $200. Romwe.com is one…

    3.26 – Air Max Day

    Sometimes, I can be sporty. As many of you may already know, I love to dress up. But dressing up all the time takes a lot of effort and energy. Some days, I just want to be comfortable and casual, especially at work. I feel fortunate that I work for a company that allows me to rock a pair of joggers and some flashy sneakers at the office. And speaking of flashy kicks, today is 3/26/17: it’s Air Max Day! Not only that, but it’s the 30th anniversary of Nike launching it’s first Air Max shoe back in 1987. The Air Max is an iconic style of Nike footwear that has grown…

    Quarter Century Birthday

    I am 25 today. I’ve been alive for 9,131 days, 1,304 weeks… a quarter of a century! I feel old, but also I kind of feel like my life is just starting. I look back on my 25 years with so much happiness in my heart. I was blessed with an incredible childhood which led to so many opportunities, and I am proud of all I’ve accomplished in my first 25 years. Sometimes I feel like the world can be so negative, and I can complain about such inconsequential things, but lately I’ve been trying to make a conscious effort to change that. I took some time to compile a…
