Goodbye Ipsy

Goodbye Ipsy Pruning to good to make room for the great

Here’s the Thing… Don’t worry, don’t worry. I haven’t canceled my Ipsy bag. In fact, I will not be canceling my Ipsy bag in any foreseeable future. How else will I be able to stay up to date with all the latest beauty trends?! On a serious note, I have been putting a lot of thought into the type of content…

Here’s the Thing… The other day I was getting ready to do the dishes or something and I opened my Pandora app to play music. My boyfriend said, “do you have to listen to music whenever you do anything?” Ummmm…..yes? I don’t understand the question. I literally listen to music all the time.

Self-Love

Here’s the Thing… Ever since I began college back in 2013, people have always been asking me, “So what’s next?” I suppose it is a valid question, since the four years of college can be some of the most transformative, but I just gotta be honest: I was tired of always trying to come up with answers that I thought…

Becoming a Champion

Becoming a champion

Here’s the Thing… About a month ago I was hanging out with my little sister before her cheer practice. Over the course of the morning, she had developed a stomach ache and desperately did not want to go to practice. A little background info: her and her cheer squad had qualified to go to the Jamz National Championship in Las…
