SUMMER NIGHTS WITH ASOS

Summer — I actually hate it.

 

I say so every year it comes along because every year I still mean it! It’s just not for me. And if it was up to me, I seriously would consider relocating to cooler land just for these few months! People think I’m crazy but my reasons are solid (bugs, scorching heat, sweat). Who likes that?

 

Like, the day I shot this look, it was so hot. Thankfully, I have a nice glow in these photos but really, I think I was on the brink of glistening in perspiration lol. Shout out to my glands for holding back for the sake of these photos!

How To Beat The Waiting Game

Waiting: I hate it. I like to know what’s next and what’s going on.

 

So when I began to apply for internships, my thought process wasn’t any different. I confidently applied in the beginning of April, prepared to be set for the summer. But something strange happened — unsettling even. I wasn’t getting any answers.

Go Your Own Way

Happy May! It’s all about renewal, choosing your own path way and moving on.

 

As we pack up boxes to leave college and fill up suitcases for much needed vacations, I know the one thing we’re all worried about in the back of our mind is “what’s next”? “Which way should I go?”

4 Things To Do When You Feel Hopeless

My senior year of college has never been so unsettling.

 

I’m only taking 3 classes (one online) with Tuesdays and Thursdays off and I’m interning remotely with Gorgeous in Grey. I thought this semester would be pretty chill. I thought I’d be sleeping in more (which is true). I thought I’d have a whole lot more time for my blog (false). I thought I’d just be freeeeeeeeee!

 

Well, it’s on and off. I’m super busy and when I’m not, I feel off because it’s like I should be doing something! Weird, huh? But through the many homework assignments and traveling to and fro from the city, I’ve just been going through multiple tests that were supposed to drain me. I’m talking physical, spiritual and all of that, people.

 

My recent obstacle has been fighting hopelessness.

Lessons My Mom Taught Me on Beauty & Dignity

My mother taught me to represent myself well at all times. Hair? Done. Face? Beat. Clothes? Ironed. Shoulders? Back.  Beauty tips came with the package of growing into my womanhood.

 

And as a girly girl, I loved it. Even the annoying parts.

 

If she saw me slouching, she’d just look over at me and I’d just know to stand upright. We laugh about it all the time because she still does it ’til this day!

 

When we need new foundation, we hit up Sephora together. If I’m pondering a new hairstyle, I scrounge the internet to find her the perfect photo. We send each other texts asking each other for advice on great deals we’ll find at the mall. (I’m a graduating senior from college and I text my mother multiple times in the day! And don’t get me started on our phone calls.)

 

While my mom taught me all the girl and surface-y stuff, the real foundation of our relationship are the heart things. She has always been reminding me of my beauty and worth every single day, showed me how to carry myself with respect and dignity, brings up my past accomplishments and then goes even further to encourage me about the promise of my future.
