    A Guide to Gaining Self-Confidence

    My journey to becoming comfortable in my own skin and has been outrageously painful and excruciatingly long. I’ve lived most of my life with underlying insecurities wreaking havoc on my confidence and have really struggled to find myself. I’ll be talking a lot more about this in an upcoming story for Lucy’s Magazine (releasing next month), but what I want to talk about in the meantime is the life changes I’ve undergone that have sincerely made a difference in my self-confidence. The fact of the matter is that no matter how much you work out, not matter how healthy you eat and no matter how well you wash your skin…

    Loopy Doopy rooftop bar

    Bucket List item #2458 – Loopy Doopy rooftop bar On the tippy top of the Conrad Hotel, sixteen stories above the streets of Manhattan, lives an unassuming little rooftop bar. It’s not fancy or grand like many elevated drinking establishments, but you will discover nirvana. The beautiful view will bestow some smiles, but the drinks? Those will leave you in ecstasy. Any time I add an item to the bucket list via some sensationalist news media source, I’m always weary. Just because a food item is larger than life does not mean it’s the best. It’s a novelty, so I went into Loopy Doopy thinking as such. What I found…

    Ever Pretty Wish List

    I was recently sent two beautiful dresses from Ever Pretty, which I talked about on this blog post. I fell in love with the quality of both of them as there’s a lot of bang for your buck there. Neither were your run of the mill cheap dress. So, of course, now I want more. I made myself a little wish list of my top ten favorite dresses on the site right now. Tell me in the comments which is your favorite! And remember that if you like these, read my previous blog about fit and thoughts. The Ever Pretty brand dress I tried definitely ran small, so I would…

    Magnolia Plantation

    Bucket list item #976 – Magnolia Plantation Charleston, South Carolina, USA I remember when I was working on an itinerary for our anniversary last year, I told Dave one day we were slated to spend the entire day at Magnolia Plantation. He looked at me like I was a crazy person. “We’re spending all day at a plantation. What on earth would we do at a plantation all day?” To which I replied, “Everything, Dave. Everything.” When I say everything, I sincerely feel like I’m not exaggerating. Magnolia Plantation & Gardens seemingly has it all. There’s the plantation itself, lots of gardens (they weren’t really in bloom while we were…

    Ever Pretty Dresses Review

    I’ve found a new place to shop dresses and I’m losing my mind a bit here because it’s almost too good to be true. Ever Pretty was so generous as to gift me two dresses of my choosing for review. Of course, I was over the moon because I just love my dresses. It took me a fairly generous amount of time to choose, but I settled on a v neck party dress with red flowers and an a-line pink number. When they arrived in the mail, my initial shock was the quality. These dresses were both under $40 and they are beautiful. I didn’t know about the pleated pink…

    A Weekend in Manitou Springs

    Bucket List item #932 – Manitou Springs Colorado, USA A weekend in Manitou Springs was the first item Dave and I checked off my bucket list and it was a weekend we still talk about to this day. It was our first Valentine’s Day together. I was still at the Art Institute at the time and had taken a travel landscape class. I had to photograph a lot in Manitou for a project and just fell in the love with the city. However, I wasn’t able to properly enjoy the city because I was too busy photographing it. I badly wanted to go back. When the Valentine’s Day holiday rolled…

    How to Make Fast Fashion Look Designer

    Every knows I just love my fast fashion, which isn’t a popular opinion these days (and for good reason). However, I try to treat it respectfully and only buy pieces I really love and I think I will wear a lt. I treat fast fashion like I would treat a designer garment, and that makes all the difference. I get asked by friends and even people on the streets all the time about the garments I wear, thinking they’re designer, and people are shocked when I say things like, “thank you, it was $5!” I am a firm believer there are diamonds in the rough for any cheap brand. So,…

    Amish Country

    Bucket list item #974 Amish country Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA Man moons ago, Dave and I ventured to Pennsylvania for the wedding of our friends. We stayed in Harrisburg, PA, which was basically Amish country. Seeing the Amish in real life was one of my earliest bucket list checks. You see, I didn’t start to really write down these goals until after Dave and I started dating, and (I believe) this was only our second check. I have to admit, there isn’t a lot to tell you about this day even though it was one of the most fun days of my life! Basically, we rented a car and spent the…

    Passaic River Great Falls

    Bucket list item #2361 – Passaic River Great Falls Paterson, New Jersey, USA Last weekend, Dave and I went to a party a couple friends of ours were hosting. It was in New Jersey, so of (of course) the first thing I did was jump on my bucket list to see if any of my checks were nearby. There wasn’t one, but two! Sadly, one was out of season, but there was a lovely set of waterfalls ripe for the picking! These waterfalls were in a very interesting location. There’s basically a park built around the main part of the waterfalls, which is protected, but as soon as this small…

    Skincare Update

    As promised, I’m here to give a little skincare update. I’ve been on a rollercoaster ride with my skin lately, and as such have tried so many things in the last year and even more so in the last six months. However, I want to skip to the good stuff that has actually worked for me! A little background: I’ve always struggled with acne. There are pockets in my life where I’ve had clear skin, but those moments were fleeting. I’ve never been able to get it truly under control, although I’m starting to feel like I just didn’t try hard enough. These days, I’m like a dog with a…
