HOW I'M GETTING MY HAIR BACK TO ITS NATURAL COLOR

How I'm Getting My Hair Back To Its Natural Color

 For someone who generally doesn’t do well with change, when it comes to my hair I tend to change it up quite a bit. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I can’t make decisions to save my life. (Quite contradictory to the whole change thing. Just call me a walking oxymoron) 

BITS & BAUBLES | THREE THINGS FROM MARCH

Wednesday, March 28, 2018


 
Well hi, hey, is it time for a monthly roundup again? This one is going live a little earlier than usual, if that's okay with you. March pretty much didn't happen, if you ask me. One minute we're changing the clocks back & it's (finally) still daylight at 5:30 pm, the next minute we're mere days away from easter. (which is on april fools this year & you can just hear the traumatized cries of tiny humans everywhere) 

TIPS FOR SHOPPING AT FOREVER 21 WITHOUT LOSING YOUR MIND

Forever 21 Shopping Tips

When I've just told someone I got something at forever 21, (you know the drill, someone compliments you on an item of clothing, you respond & tell them where it's from, a conversation sometimes ensues) the response I get often is that they want to shop there more but it seems intimidating. Overwhelming. So many sections, so many styles of clothes and WHERE DO I EVEN START?? Even my best friend has admitted she doesn't quite know how to shop there, & I've told her too many times I'd show her the ropes, but I have been failing miserably. So in a way, this is for her, as well as anyone else who might be feeling their head spin at the thought of trying to tackle this big guy. 

THE EASTER DRESS EDIT

Friday, March 23, 2018

Forever 21 Floral Dress
Easter Dresses On A Budget

Easter is fast approaching, and even at twenty three I'm still a firm believer in getting a new outfit for the occasion. Maybe my reasoning is the fashion equivalent of "Jesus drank wine," but nevertheless, I'm sticking to it. I tend to stick to pastel-y, "easter" colors, and there is usually floral involved, because obviously. So I surprised even myself when I found myself drawn to the red in this dress from f21. Not that red isn't a good color, it's just not my normal first pick for spring. 

THINGS ABOUT SPRING THAT GET ME ALL HOT

The Best Things About Spring

The sundresses are being broken out of the back of closets, the birds are singing, the winter blues are gone. (unless you're up north, in which case, I'm so sorry) Like the new year, the start of spring makes me wanna GET ISH DONE! SPRING CLEAN! GET INSPIRED! Right now I'm on a kick of getting into better habits/ reorganizing/ cleaning/ detoxing/ etc etc that in reality will probably last a week at most, but right now I'm on a high, so let me have it for these two seconds.

SPRING HAUL | FOREVER 21, TARGET, & FASHION NOVA

Friday, March 16, 2018

Spring Haul

Each season I take it upon myself to add new items to my wardrobe, (call it an excuse to shop, I call it a necessity) and I have been on a ROLL lately. I’ve shared a few looks on here & instagram stories, and I wanted to do a complete haul as well. (I haven’t ironed any of the pieces, so that you can get a feel for how easy/ tough the fabric is to wrinkle. I've also added the link to each item in the name, for your convenience. HERE WE GO)

THE PETITE FILES | THE BEST WAY TO WEAR WIDE BELTS

Forever 21 Dress & Belt
Gucci Belt Dupes

If Instagram is any indication, a huge trend of the spring will be belts. I’m talkin big, wide, and probably with a Gucci logo.

WORKOUT FINDS UNDER $45

Monday, March 12, 2018

Affordable Workout Finds

I’m bringing you another ‘finds under...’ , but this time, workout edition. GETTING WILD.

I've never really been one to wear athleisure in everyday, though if you are one of the ones who bring it to the street and manage to look amazing, I envy you. Anyway, I firmly believe that when you have cute workout clothing, you'll be fully motivated & ready to go, even when it's the last thing you want to do. The better part of my workout routines have involved throwing on old t-shirts & shirts for a loooooong time. Too long. Of course anything will get the job done, but it just wasn't cutting it for me anymore. I needed something to get me motivated about working out again.

YOU'RE NOT ALWAYS GOING TO LOVE YOUR BODY- - AND WHY IT'S OKAY

Friday, March 9, 2018

Fashion Nova Dress + Denim Shirt
Why It's Okay To Not Always Love Your Body

Something I talk about vaguely every once in awhile is the topic of body confidence. How to stop comparing yourself and ‘love the skin you’re in’! and that’s all well & good, but I’ve realized I don’t necessarily write on my own experiences much. My mental health journey has been a doosey, and most of the time I feel... ick bringing it up. If you understand, you understand. I’m not shy about the whole anxiety thing, as that’s something I’m going to deal with for the rest of my life, in one bracket or another. But the other things from my past just make me sad when I bring them up, because it reminds me of the crap place I was once in.

WHAT WE TACKLE, WE CONQUER | A NOTE ON WOMEN'S DAY

Wednesday, March 7, 2018

International Women's Day

We’re going on year four of celebrating Women’s Day on WDAC. It’s something so important to me that I feel it needs its own dedication each year. (although the official day is tomorrow, it's never too early) Since starting my feminist journey, (is that a thing? let’s go with it) with each year I've become increasingly thankful and overwhelmed in the best way by the strength that we have as women, and the way we stick together. 

YOUR GUIDE TO ALL THINGS ACRYLICS

Guide To Acrylics

I was in high school the first time I got acrylics. I had always wanted them but never took the plunge, (mostly because I didn't have a job) but one day my friend & I went to go to get a manicure and she got them. They looked so enticing that I sat myself down, let the nail tech put on the infamous french tips, and the rest was history.

A NOTE ON BEING TRANSPARENT IN A SATURATED INDUSTRY

Friday, March 2, 2018

Fashion Nova Midi Dress
A Note On Transparency

I was going to start this post with a side note of transparency about how as much as this dress is perfectly layed in photos, it doesn't translate as well in real life. It's still a bit big in the shoulders, and the likelihood of me wearing it out in the everyday if I can't figure out a way to take that puppy of a neckline in is.... pretty slim.
