Beetique Critique: #GIRLBOSS


Ahhh, #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso. A blogger, fashionista, and entrepreneur's blueprint to aspiration. Firstly, I just want to say that #GIRLBOSS will forever hold a special place in my heart. Not just because Sophia's inspiring story is the offspring of degeneracy and brilliance.... but because this might have been the first book I've ever read from start to finish (#TBT to SparkNotes), and most definitely will not be the last.

I even wrote a 4,500-word outline when I was finished. Boom.

● Being Beautifully Introverted ●


It was only until recently that I accidentally stumbled upon the difference between introverts and extroverts. In fact, I didn't even know this was an existing spectrum. Once I did, I couldn't help but be pleasantly surprised - I'm totally an introvert. And guess what? If you are too, it's all good.

F21 Haul ║ Long Necklaces for Layering


Do you ever hold back on buying a few new things because you already have enough [i know, i know... as if a girl could really have enough of anything], don't really need it, or simply because it's just not in the budget right now. Yeah, same! ....and THIS is how hauls are eventually conceived.

#TBT Presents: Name Plates + Tattoo Chokers


Can't believe it's Throwback Thurz already! I seriously must black out from the second I wake up Monday morning and not snap out of it until sometime after lunch on Fridays. I still feel like it's 2010. Or should I say the 90's - considering this wouldn't be a proper #TBT post unless being a 90's betch was scribbled all over it. Let's go back in time to your childhood birthday wishlist.

LUSH » Dream Cream + Sympathy for the Skin



It's been a hot minute since I last gave a LUSH Cosmetics review [totally tried to make you guys forget about my addiction], but let it be known that the obsession is still real. I'm still experimenting with various LUSH products ((one payday at a time)) that I'm super excited to tell you about in the near future, so without further ado, I'd like to introduce my holy grail:  Dream Cream + Sympathy for the Skin hand & body lotion.

A Picture Perfect Outdoor Oasis

Is it just me or does everyone have their own vivid daydream of the most perfect home? Some people dream of a big house with a wrap-around porch and others may dream of a big yard with a white picket fence. Me? I literally think about my future "beach-entry" pool daily. Ridiculous, right? Wouldn't want it any other way. When Wicker Central reached out to see if I'd be interested in participating in their Outdoor Oasis Style Challenge, I knew the exact look I'd be going for.
