Happy birthday to me! Well, almost… For my 27th birthday, I’ve decided that the best gift I could receive is my friends, family and readers coming together for a cause I am incredibly passionate about. This year, I want nothing more than to come together and give back to my two favorite domestic violence and sexual assault organizations: Women in Distress of Broward County and Houston Area Women’s Center. I’d love to raise $1,027 by my birthday, September 4th (a.k.a. Bey Day). I’d love for you to consider donating here on my YouCaring fundraiser page.

Here’s a curvy confession: I’m not always so curvy. If you’ve been following my blog, you know that I yoyo year after year from one size to another. As you can only imagine, this is a painful realization when you own a closet full of clothes that you can barely sardine yourself into. Over the last four months, I’ve been experiencing major work/life balance stress and dealing with my underactive thyroid to boot—basically I’ve gone up a size or two! It’s discouraging to not feel comfortable in my own skin and the clothing I wear. Well, I’m suddenly comfortable and I have Old Navy’s denim jeans to thank.
Happy Tuesday/Feels Like a Monday!
I’ve been on a Blog Societies hangover since Charleston, but I am so energized and excited to tell you about today’s big event! I’ll be hosting a Sip & Shop Soiree at Cheeky Vintage tonight and you’re invited! I’ve been spending plenty of time at Cheeky Vintage deciphering the perfect pre-fall picks to showcase with my readers. Tonight, from 6-8 p.m., I’ll be hosting a really fun event to share some of my favorite items with you.

PSA: I’m blonde – very blonde. Between fair skin and light hair, it can sometimes be difficult for me to figure out the beauty tricks to enhance my features. My eyebrows (as patchy as they unfortunately are) are the only “dark” feature I have on my face. I’ve often fallen victim to envying my friends sweeping chestnut locks and thick eyelashes. There’s still one thing I’ve always wanted more than anything but haven’t been able to permanently achieve: dark, full lashes. That’s when I was introduced to Rimmel Volume Colorist Mascara at Target.
