Since I was in Junior High School, I have always been the one taking the pictures. I have hardly any pictures of myself from those years up until senior year of High School. Mainly because I was never comfortable being in front of the camera, sure I made video blogs or vlogs on and off during that time frame but not photos. And I'm still a little camera shy, which is why I did the 100 Days of Makeup on Instagram to force myself to get used to taking photos of myself. And to just overall gain some confidence in myself as it all roots down to there. I don't feel confident with my appearance so I never took pictures of myself. Or let anyone take pictures of me. So how do you go from being extremely camera shy to openly wanting to take selfies? This was the mission I set upon myself several months ago. And here's what I've learned.Read More

I'm not a huge breakfast person. Don't get me wrong I do love some breakfast foods like cheesy scrambled eggs, omelets, donuts, oatmeal and waffles... but I don't like eating when I wake up.

But then when I get to work, an hour later I'm starting to get hungry. So these are 3 healthy breakfast choices when you don't have time in the morning to make yourself a full breakfast but still want something to eat.

After blogging daily for about two years, I've hit writers block multiple times where I just had no idea what to write about and I looked up guides for ideas on what to write about.

One thing when I move in April that I'm going to try my hardest to save up for to achieve is creating an apartment that actually looks like something out of an HGTV show or magazine. I know I won't be able to do it right away but I'm tried of having a "college" like place. And by that I mean a bunch of random things thrown together that looks more like a place I crash rather than a place I live in. So the first room I want to tackle in the new place is the living room as this will also double as my study most likely. So throughout the house I want to have a industrial yet rustic feel.Read More
On YouTube I've seen a lot of videos where people do comparisons by doing one product or look on one side and the exact opposite on the other. So I wanted to started a new series that I'm going to do every few weeks where I do a makeup comparison. For the first one, I decided to take similar products from two of my favorite brands and put them to the test against each other. Plus I want to switch up my brow routine every now and then, because as much as I love the Wunderbrow I think variety is generally a good thing. So I picked up NYX Tame & Frame Tinted Brow Pomande in Expresso and Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Brow Mousse in Rich Brown. Which are very close in color and formula.Read More
