Let your pores breathe. Put down the curling iron. It's time to take off that mask and show your true beauty. I use makeup on most days because it makes me feel more confident, but I need to learn to be confident without it. No one needs makeup to be beautiful.


Honestly, it felt so weird to take pictures without makeup. It was just me in a white t-shirt and sweatpants being completely natural. In the end, I was happy with how they turned out, and I'm glad I broke out of my comfort zone. 

I'm not going to put these last pictures under behind the scenes because this whole shoot was about me being who I am, and I love these funny pics.

Fight Back

The words "You're not good enough" ring through her head. Self doubt starts flooding in for the millionth time, but now she realizes that enough is enough. Lately she has been kicked down, but not anymore. She is ready to get back up and fight. This girl is not going to let anyone control her anymore; she is ready for a change. 

Throughout life there will always be people who don't truly appreciate you, but you must remember the ones that do. People will push you down just for the hell of it, but you must fight back. If they have a problem with you then they can get out of your life. You don't need them. 

If you have to change yourself for anyone, they are not worth it. In the cheesy words of Oscar Wilde, "Be yourself; everyone else is already taken." If you're happy with yourself, that's the only thing that matters.

About The Look:
One of my favorite things to do is to match conflicting patterns and textures together. In this look, I paired a Hamsa hand shirt with gold detailing, a pleated skirt, a bow belt, and cheetah heels! Even though the prints and textures are so different, I feel like they work really well together. I do this a lot with my wardrobe because I love reworking items into different outfits. It can save a lot of money!

Take a minute. Take a deep breath and relax. Life is so hectic at times that we forget to stop and take some time for ourselves. If we are always worrying about our busy schedules, we are not truly living. This is what I did in Cozumel, Mexico over Spring Break.

With your feet in the white sand and the sound of crashing waves in your ears, it's pretty easy to get relaxed and take time away from normal daily life. Cozumel was the perfect destination for a truly needed tropical getaway. It was the perfect mix of adventure and relaxation. 

Just remember that you need to take time to break away from your everyday routine, and just BREATHE!

About the Look:
This is more of a bohemian styled look and I absolutely love it. With Coachella being this week, (which makes me quite sad)I thought I would get in the spirit with this look.
