As a fashion blogger I’m always on the go and around people. I will admit that my period odor does make me feel less than fresh in the clothes I wear or how I go about my day. When I started to take care of my period days with the best products from Summer’s Eve®, I noticed not only a hygiene difference, but also a confidence boost. With Summer’s Eve® products, I’ll never have to worry about period odor again.

The “Dad” Sweater | Street Style Outfit

The “Dad” Sweater | Street Style Outfit
Hello Loves!

90s style continues to be a trend and there is one I am quite obsess with — dad sweaters! According to the internet, the “dad style” is referred to as the comfy, retro-looking style, as if it has been worn for years. This pretty much sums up my entire wardrobe. I love to shop, but I don’t buy everything I eye-ball. Instead, I purchase timeless pieces that I know I’ll wear for years to come. You can check out my ‘4 Tips from a Smart Shopper’ post on tips to shop for that timeless wardrobe.

What I love about my dad sweater: it’s comfy, soft, and neutral! This is one of my favorite causal looks to flaunt. It’s the perfect, easy street style outfit without any effort. I love the neutral tones and little touches of gold details.

Leaving my 9-5 Job to Pursue My Passions

Leaving my 9-5 Job to Pursue My Passions
Hello Loves!

Today’s post is all about pursuing my passions head on. I have never been afraid to make the first move, especially when it came to creating a path that I hope one day will lead to my ultimate career goal. My love for content creation started during my study abroad trip. After two years of trial and error, and working a job I had no passion for; I decided to take a leap of faith by quitting my 9-5 job.

My love for content creation continues to grow from the brainstorming process to capturing the perfect photo. I have found amazing success not only with the fun projects I had the privilege to be a part of, but also developing a sense of self-love and confidence I never knew I had for myself.

I felt the urge to take a risk towards a career I have always yearned for. At first I made sure it was a career I wanted, which is why I tested the waters for 2 years as a hobby on the side. When I started to receive offers for paid sponsorships and brand trips; I realized how content creation was more than just a pretty photo, but more about the story and conversation behind a photo.

Being honest with my parents was hard. I was afraid to start from scratch when my entire college years were prepare for the HR world. Even though I am a go-getter, I am still afraid of failure and the unknown. It wasn’t until I took a trip to New York for my 25th birthday that I realized how much I disliked my HR job. Don’t get me wrong, my team was amazing, and the work load was do-able. At the end of the day, I felt creatively limited.

My entire life, I prepared myself for a life that wasn’t my own. This lead to a mental breakdown. I have never felt such a sadness in what I was doing. I finally had the strength to open up to my mom, which was the best decision for my mental health. The honest conversation lead to a back-up plan and opening up to my dad. Through it all, my parents supported my decision to quit my job and pursue a digital and social media career.

Even though I’m financially unstable at the moment; I have this overwhelming good-feeling that something amazing will come out of it. The most important thing I learned from this experience is to always be honest with yourself and the people who love you most. If I was honest from the beginning, I really believe I would have not pursued a career I dreaded.

Lash Extensions with Plee Beauty

Lash Extensions with Plee  Beauty
Hello Loves!

I’m such a sucker for lash extensions. The feeling of instant beauty is a remarkable feeling. I only get lash extensions for special occasions because maintaining new lashes on a monthly basis can get very pricey. However, they are definitely worth it when you have a photoshoot, wedding, or vacation coming up.

I got my mine done by Plee Beauty. She has been my go to gal for all things beauty in my hometown. Let’s just say the experience was the best one yet! I have gotten my lash extended twice before setting up an appointment with Plee Beauty and she is by far the best I have encountered. Not only did the process fly by, I felt no discomfort during and after the process was completed. She is a pro!

I will say that since I have very sensitive eyes, the fumes did sting my eyes for the first week and has gotten better as the weeks go by. We also discovered that I am allergic to the lash extension glue. Even though this will be my lash extension set due to my allergic reaction, I would still recommend Plee Beauty if you are considering lash extensions. She is located in the Wausau, WI area!
