As a full time college student and a busy girl in her early 20s, I do not always have time to blog. With that being said, it is hard for me to keep content for my blog such as pictures and that’s why I have decided to expand my blog a little bit. I am still going to run this as mostly fashion but I am also going to write posts in which I feel people can relate to, such as today’s. I have been going back and forth on this for a while now and I hope you can relate in someway.
This era of time there are many of us who settle for less than what we deserve. From relationships to friendships to even bad habits, I believe we all have settled and if you haven’t yet experienced it then you will. It is part of life. We all know that saying, “you get what you give” but is this really true when you really stop and think about it? I don’t believe it is. Yes maybe in some circumstances but how about the times when you are treating others with nothing but love and respect and get the complete opposite in return. This past year for me has had many ups and many downs and it has molded me into the person I am today. I have grown up a lot and became more aware of things. I do not regret my past one little bit and know it has made me into the young woman I am becoming and have already became. I have settled a few times in life and from those times I have learned that it isn’t worth it. If you as a person are giving someone your all and not getting it in return then why settle? I believe “settling” has become such a common thing in today’s world and it just isn’t worth it. Settling is becoming “okay” with how your living your life in the moment and feeling comfortable even when you know you can do better as a person. It is also becoming okay with how your being treated when you know you deserve better.The truth is everyone deserves “someone” and “something” that is just as great of a person and of great quality. Everyone has the ability and opportunity to not settle and to be anyone you want to be in life. Life is too short to settle especially when you know you deserve better. Becoming a better and happier version of you is one of the biggest reasons “why you should never settle for less than what you deserve”. There is a person out there to treat you with the respect you deserve, friends whom will do the same, and opportunities to live life to the fullest. If you think you are just “settling”, whether it be in a relationship or a bad habit, get rid of that something and start living life to the fullest, as it is not worth it.
I’m no professional when it comes to makeup but I do know what makes my face look best. I am one to experiment with different kinds of makeup and mix inexpensive with expensive items. I also love a subtle natural look for everyday and rarely use eyeshadow unless I am going to a nice dinner or an evening out. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against the heavy makeup look but haven’t been the one to do up my face all professional on the daily LOL. Any ways, these are the items I use for my everyday routine. On another note, today was my first day back to classes and it was a very cold morning walking to class. I hope to get back in the swing of things soon to where I’ll be doing my regular outfit posts but for now I am going to be doing different posts like I have today. Hope you enjoy and if you have any requests feel free to send them my way! :)

Hello && happy Tuesday! I am just getting back to Tuscaloosa from winter break and tomorrow is the start of spring semester. Once again break went by a bit too fast but I enjoyed every minute of it and ready to get this semester kicked off because spring and summer is right around the corner (whoop whoop!) a.k.a my favorite time of the year. I am really not very fond of the cold weather and it makes me want to just stay inside all of the time but of course I cannot do that. Any ways, with spring semester kicking off I thought what better post than a “Back to School” post, right!? I included down below some very cute essentials and even threw in a very adorable hoodie because if you’re anything like me that is the perfect throw and go to an early morning class. Hope you enjoy and happy back to school! ;)

So I admit I am a few days behind. When Christmas hit it was very busy for me so I apologize for the lack of blog posts. With that being said, I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and a lovely weekend to follow. Today’s look is simple and classic with a pop of baby blue (which is the perfect winter color), classic over the knee boots, and a casual pair of black leggings. I love this color blue especially for this time of year and paired it with a soft pink lipstick and gold earrings. Since the top is so soft and pale, I wanted to keep my lipstick as subtle as possible.

Merry Christmas Eve everyone! This look is totally relaxed and is a perfect throw and go for a last minute shopping look. I am still one of those people who have at least one Christmas gift to get and I want nothing more than to be comfy while fighting the crazy crowds. I received this monogrammed sweater as a birthday gift and I love it. Hoping you all have a very joyful Christmas and Christmas Eve!
