As Promised, I’m back with another post! I don’t have to too much to say so let’s jump right into it!
1. Patent leather boots ✨
These are my everything! Since they’re black they go with every outfit, but they add a touch of badass to every look! Plus they were on sale! These are from F21!
2. Mini LV Backpack ✨
This has been my go-to bag for the past couple of week. It’s small enough to be able to carry the basics and nothing more. That’s perfect for me, who can be a bit of a hoarder.
3. Blush Fur Coat ✨
Peep my patent leather boots in this picture! Anyways, I have been lusting after a fur coat for months. Every blogger and their mother has a cheetah print one. But given, I’m a less adventurous girl, I went for this pale, blush coat. It’s so warm and cozy, the only thing is I wish it zippered and had pockets. Btw, this is from F21.
4. milk and honey
Never did I think a book could change my life… milk an honey is chicken noodle soup for every girls’ soul. Read it, please.
5. SZA- Drew Barrymore
This song has been my national anthem for a couple of weeks now. It’s kind of about being in a controlling relationship and how one loses themself. I was once in the same position and this song reminds me of all the things I wish I could’ve said…. yeah.
Hello everyone! Sorry for taking such a long break, I have been struggling a lot with finding inspiration 😦 But I have finally returned ! I’m also very proud to announce I have reached over 50 followers!!!! It may seem like such a small number but to me, it’s like the entire wolrld!
Anyways, here is my skincare routine!
Step 1: Removing Makeup
Now there are three ways I like to remove my makeup. When I’m super tired and lazy I just use a plain old makeup wipe. Preferably neutrogena wipes. If I have a little more time and energy, I turn to my trusted bio makeup remover from Paris. This stuff has the strength to power through stubborn mascara! However it doesn’t remove all makeup so you will have to go in with something else. Finally, my coveted coconut oil. Coconut oil has soo many uses and makeup removing is just one. I can’t say enough good things about it. Another alternative to coconut oil is olive oil, which everyone tends to have in their pantry!
Step 2: Cleansing
Next step is cleansing! First I always turn to African Black Soap. Black soap has anti-bacterial properties and gets rid of dark spots and acne. Many people have said this is a game changer in the skincare world. Then I might create a scrub out of baking soda and water to get my pores clean. Baking soda is known to treat blackheads.
Step 3: Toning
I know this technically isn’t a toner but I’ve been using oxy-pads as a “toner”. Can’t really say too much about them. I don’t feel like they make a difference. *shrugs* Then I use witch hazel. I use Humphreys Lilac Skin Softening Witch Hazel. Like the title says, it makes my skin super soft. In terms of my hyper pigmentation, I would say yes, I have seen improvements since introducing this product into my routine.
Step 4: Moisturizing
To wrap things up I like to use 99% Aloe Vera gel for my dark spots. You can find this at any organic store. Tip: put this on any pimple for an overnight cure! Next I spray Lush’s Tea Tree Water all over my face. This is a really light moisturizer with the benefits of tea tree oil. Finally I top it off with all natural tea tree oil! And that’s my skincare routine!
Hope you guys found this somewhat helpful! Stay tuned for more!
Christmas is only 17 days away (at least it is as I’m writing this)! I’m definitely excited about this year. It’s my first year with a job, so it’ll be the first time I can actually get everyone on my list decent gifts. I really can’t wait to see their reactions! I personally think I’m a great gift giver! However, I do have my own list, so without further ado, here it is!
A Shiba Inu!
I have loved Shibas for soo long now! They’re so cute and I’m ready to love one and be loved back! I want to go on long walks and have lots of snuggle time! I don’t necessarily want someone to get me one but it would be nice to have some money to help with the adoption process.
A Gold Macbook 12″
As I currently type this, I’m working on my mother’s computer. I basically want something that I’m free to call my own and have my own setup without worrying about other people’s stuff. Plus, not having to share is a big bonus for when I have to pull 5 hour essay writing sessions!
I already own a Canon 300D, but unfortunately mine doesn’t record video! I think the next step in my my blogging and Instagram career would be to take more professional photos. So I’m crossing my fingers that I get a new camera! Hopefully either a Canon Powershot or a Canon Rebel!
Zara’s Little Red Bag I first saw this bag on Youtube and I’ve literally been dreaming of it since! I think it’s so cute and so unique. I absolutely love the bees as the metal detailing. Bees are kinda like my personal symbol. I have an Alex and Ani bracelet with a bee on it so this would be the perfect addition to my collection.
Just Peachy Lip Bundle
Love peachy tones. They’re especially lovely on dark skin tones!
See a theme here?
Banks- The Altar (Vinyl)
I believe I’ve mentioned Banks in a favorites post before. If not, just go listen to her, she’s an actual queen! Her must is pretty much about girl power and forget about all the boy trouble you may be having. Absolutely love jamming to this album in my car, now it’s time to have it only vinyl! This can be found at urban outfitters 🙂
Faux Patent Leather Boots
I’ve been wanting to experiment with my shoes forever! These are a step above my comfort zone and I think they’re so badass. These can be found at Forever 21.
So that’s it for the specifics. Other much appreciated gifts include money, gift cards, anything and everything from Zara’s, plants, clothing, etc.

Hello everyone! It’s officially fall and I’m so excited for Halloween and warm, fuzzy sweaters! Here is a quick ootd to start off the season!
Thanks for reading!
Hello everyone! Sooo this month I went on a family vacation on a cruise and it was Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas! I put together a little video composed of clips from my trip. I figured this would be much nicer as opposed to writing everything out! If you enjoyed my video be sure to give it a big thumbs up and subscribe to my channel if you please!
Some photos from the trip!
This summer, I was accepted into the Sumer Honors Institute at Long Island University. Throughout the week, I explored the various areas of fasion merchandising. This is my travel diary from my time there!
Day 1 & 2
So it’s day two at LIUSHI. With all the running around yesterday, I hardly had a chance to stop and write. Initially I had a lot of anxiety, but as soon as I walked on campus I received such a warm welcoming. The other students kept stopping to say hi and the staff was super friendly. I met my roommate who later that night moved out due to a mishap. However, after my parents left, the anxiety returned. There wasn’t really anything planned since check in would continue for a another couple of hours. After awhile I decided to check out the student boutique since I would be spending most of time throughout the week there. Thankfully I ran into another fashion merchandising student and we kinda joined forces to explore the campus. Two hours later I met a couple more girls taking the same classes and we hit it off really well. It’s really cool to meet people who are truly into fashion like I am and not just shopping at typical teenage stores like Hollister or Pink. We got to go to an ice cream social. I have been absolutely obsessed with ice cream with rainbow sprinkles this month so I was in heaven! During icebreaker games, I finally met the entire group and got to know what everyone. Things got really wild that night while playing manhunt! I ended going to sleep pretty early compared to everyone else since I was up really early that day.
Day two has been so great. Everything that we’ve done has been so much fun. After going around in a circle talking about the what got us interested in fashion and our favorite stores, we got into three teams of four for our first challenge. Honestly with all the challenges I felt like I was on Project Runway! What a dream come true! Our challenge was to go around campus and find the best dressed for business and casual and the best shoes. Unfortunately, there weren’t a lot of people on campus since many groups went into the city, so my group didn’t really find anyone. We returned and presented what we found. Next we watched two TED Talks. The first one was called “Forget Shopping, soon you’ll Download Your New Clothes”. It was the perfect introduction to tomorrow‘s trip the the Met and digital printing. I wasn’t able to catch the name of the second video, but it was basically about how fashion thrives on change. Both were inspiring. Next came the fun part. We broke into teams again and did another challenge. This time the challenge was to put together a piece project runway style with scraps. Once again, our team struggled but it was still fun! Next, we started on our final project. The idea is to put together and window display and inspiration board based around a theme. Ours was ‘Blushing In Lace”. My group was really inspired by this blue lace two piece and decided to use royal blue as an accent color next to blush. It was nice to feel like a college student for awhile; working on our Pinterest boards and have lunch. We went back to our dorm and got a text from our group leader telling us to come back for pizza. I remember being really mad at myself for buying food when there was free pizza. Later that night we were forced to go watch Batman vs Superman. We ended up leaving since it was too cold and such a bad movie. I thought the rest of my night would be quiet and relaxing, but around 12, my friends knocked on my door asking me to come hang out in their room. I left around 2, and got like 5 hours of sleep. I’m still really tired as I’m typing this.
