How I Decided It Was Time to Revamp My Content

I have never understood why the word “change” oftentimes refers to something negative. “She sure has changed” or “I miss how she used to be” seem to escape the lips of many people when someone takes charge and decides to do something a little different. People evolve over time; it is a part of life. As long as you stay true to who you are and what you believe in, I think a little change is healthy and productive. So that’s what I’ve decided to do. Months of putting my blog aside to focus on planning my wedding has given…

Easy Wedding DIY Project: Send-Off Bubbles!

With my wedding seemingly right around the corner, my Mom and I have been working together every Saturday trying to tie all loose ends together. I thought it would be fun to share with you a DIY project I’ve been working on for the last couple of Saturdays.

I was super stoked when I saw they were coming out with lip glosses. While I love a classic matte lip, I’m happiest wearing a gloss. I added three colors to my cart to give them a try. Two are the classic sheer formula (Piranha and Thotful, and one is the metallic formula (My Jam). There were so many pretty colors ranging from nude all the way…

How to Dress for a Summer Wedding

It is wedding season again! We all know April-June and September-November are the most popular months to host a wedding. How could you not want to? The weather is wonderful, and the scenery is picture-perfect. My fiancé and I recently attended a beautiful wedding on July 2, and I personally was stumped on what to wear. Dressing for a wedding can be tricky. Down here in the southern United States, weddings tend to be more casual unless specified that it is black-tie, but of course each and every wedding is unique. Not all invitations will specify the attire, but here are 5…
