| Embracing Change & Finding Happiness | A Few Important Things I Learned at 23 |



I've been lost all my life. I've never known who or what I wanted to be and as ridiculously cliche as it sounds, I've been my own worst enemy all my life. No one has ever judged me harder and no one has probably hated me more than myself. 

Daily battles in front of the mirror, battles with myself and the things I do, the things I've been through, the things I think and feel. I was so mad at myself for not knowing what I wanted, I was constantly putting myself down for the way I look, think, and act. 

Can you imagine spending 10+ years hating the way you look? Spending every waking moment of your life wishing you were someone else. Imagine spending hours crying in front of the mirror or working out excessively to get an ideal body that just isn't possible. What about never thinking you're good enough, smart enough, a loser with no talent, no passion, no motivation. That was me, less than a year ago.

| How To Use Instagram To Promote Your Blog |



I have a love/hate relationship with Instagram and I'm sure I'm not the only person who feels this way. Instagram is one of the essential platforms to use to promote your blog, (if you're not already on Instagram, get yourself an account now!). However, with recent changes to the algorithm, Instagram is becoming increasingly more difficult to grow an account on. That doesn't mean it's not possible to grow your account, you just need to be careful and strategic. 
In order to get the most out of your Instagram account to insure you're getting your content not only out there on the internet, but also seen by many people, you need to make sure you're using it right. I've got a few tips for you to help grow your Instagram account that I'm sharing in this post! Hopefully I can help you grow your account so your content can get the attention it deserves!

| Top 10 Under $10 | Eyeshadow



I've been using a lot more high end makeup lately but my love for drugstore makeup will probably never die. There's really nothing better than amazing, affordable products! That being said, not everything at the drugstore is great. The drugstore can be a gamble and there are a lot of not so great products that you could just be wasting your money on.

I put together a list of my top 10 eyeshadows under $10, that way you can skip over the products that don't work and go straight to the good stuff!

| July Favorites |




July is over and we're now in the final month of the summer, August. I feel like everyone I know has been rushing the summer, but not me. I kind of wish summer could last all year. Now that it's August, I have to start making the most of this month before the summer ends!

Anyway, now that July is over and it's a new month, it's time to take a look back at some of the products I've been using and loving this month. Here's my July Favorites!
