Just Be You

I eat healthy (most of the time) and I workout at least four times a week, but even though I do this, I’m still no size zero. No one looks at me and thinks that I could walk down a runway during fashion week, but at the same time no one is looking at me and thinking that I should …

Loving Yourself

Do you remember the first time you had a crush? I know that I do. I was in the fourth grade and it was on this boy that I had known since the second grade. We went to school together, and the year that I first developed feelings for him we happened to be in the same class. I got …

Making Sure the Shoe Fits

I love fashion. There’s just something about putting together an outfit that brings me so much joy. I can wake up feeling down, but then my mood can instantly lift the moment that I put on an outfit that I love. And I wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve experienced something like this too. Sometimes putting on a good looking outfit …
