A Note of Encouragement for Graduates

One of the scariest moments in life is college graduation. It seems like every bit of schooling, stress, and tears comes down to the moment they hand you a diploma and you start in the adult world.

Heavy, huh?

21 Things I Learned at 21

Well, Enthusiasts, I made it to 22.¬†And it’s been quite the year.

If you’ve been following me on this journey, you will know that every year I make a list of all the lessons I’ve learned. If you haven’t been following, here is 17, 18, 19, and 20. And what you’re reading here is 21.

21 Things I Learned at 21

The ripe age of 21 tested me in ways I never knew. I graduated college. I got my first adult job. I dealt with heartbreak for the first time. I bought a car. I learned a lesson about friendship.

What I learned being single

And then I had my first real, serious relationship and it ended in flames a year ago. It was traumatic how upset I was then, because I had indulged in that luxury enough I had thought it was a necessity. A year later, I’ve come back to my senses. The part of me that I lost in that year and a half relationship have come back, and I couldn’t be happier. And it’s reminded me of why being single is kind of the best. Continue reading

Favourites Friday #70: Lazy Girl Hacks

Does the idea of getting up and spending an hour getting ready sound like too much of a commitment? There’s nothing wrong with being lazy, especially when it comes to getting ready for the day.

70

Even as a morning person, I struggle with getting ready most mornings. Any product that can make looking pretty easy (and take very little time) is considered good in my book. I thought I’d share my go-to’s for mornings where I just want to lie in bed, but I’ve got places to go. Continue reading

Spring 2017 Beauty Necessities

Spring is finally upon us if the flowers are any indication. I can’t seem to go anywhere without seeing a tulip or wildflower popping up. And I love it!

Spring Beauty Necessities

Along with updating my wardrobe for spring, I love changing up my beauty products to get that dewy, pink look. It’s exciting to find products that help my look bloom like a flower (yes, I went there) and help me to transition into summer. Continue reading
