My Favorite Fall & Winter Footwear

, , , , , , , , , , , ,

Now that the weather is getting cooler (it was so cold and windy today) I get so happy about wearing my fall and winter shoes. If you want to check out what else I like about autumn check out my autumn appreciation post. I pretty much wear the same shoes all year. Just last week I was talking to my aunt about going shopping for some new shoes. So I checked the internet, Polyvore and some of my favorite style bloggers. Now, it’s time for me to go try some on.

I’m not a shoe person. I’m more of a clothing person (especially dresses and jackets/coats.) Plus I tend to wear the same shoes over and over. I like the worn in look (for most of my shoes). Hopefully, I can find what I am looking for in store. I’m picky, especially when it comes to shoes (since I don’t like to have too many and I like shoes that can go from season to season).

Here are My Favorite Fall & Winter Footwear:

DIY Hair & Skin Care Introduction

If you have followed my blog for some time you may know that I started this blog as a creative outlet. I enjoy share bits of inspiration, pieces of my style and some DIYs. After sharing my last DIY I decided now is the time to share more of my other DIYs with you. I have some other DIYs up my sleeve – hair, skin and more accessories! :-)

Throughout my teenage years I have been at war with my hair and skin. My skin and hair suffered because I was always stressed out. Between juggling lab assignments (I’m a scientist), writing and have a bit of a social life, I was busy. Years later I changed my diet, starting exercising more and started experimenting making my own products for my skin and hair. Since I am a scientist and I like doing experiments, why not make my own products…hmm.

Let’s get started!

In my last DIY post I made tassel bookmarks and after I finished making the bookmarks I had left over tassels so decided to use the left over tassels to make a tassel necklace.

Dear Twenty Something Series Introduction

, , , , , , , , , ,

In my 1st Blogiversary post I talked about the new series I am starting. I’m excited about starting my Dear Twenty Something Series because as you may know I am a twenty something, specifically a late twenty something. My fellow twenty something women: Smart Twenties, Twenties Chic and Advice from a Twenty Something really inspired me to start this series. They were the first twenty something blogs I followed. When I first starting blogging a year ago I did not know that there were blogs about the twenty something experience.

Before I get started I want to share this funny video by Akilah, Obviously called Twenty Something Fridays. When I saw this video it made me lol. It sounds a bit like me minus the wine. ha! Akilah is a twenty something that shares comedy videos with a bit of hair videos tossed in. She is awesome! She’s funny :-)

Now, that you are cozy grab yourself a cuppa tea and let’s start chatting about our twenties!  Continue reading

Just a Little Bit of Inspiration Part Deux!

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

If you have read my blog for some time you know that I like to be inspired. Earlier this year I wrote a blog post called, Just a Little Bit of Inspiration! I talked about how Andrea Lewis YouTube Channel is very inspiring for my fellow 20 somethings. This summer I won her #SelfLove Tank giveaway! If you want to find out more about Andrea Lewis check out her YouTube Channel.

For this inspirational post I want to spotlight a YouTuber (Kris) that I have subscribed to for years. When I subscribed to Kris she had one YouTube Channel, CrystalRoseLove. Now she has another channel, BeautifulLifeToday. Both channels are great. On her main channel she talks about relationships, beauty, hair, and fitness. The one thing I notice about Kris is that she is passionate and has a happy approach on life. I am a firm believe that if you want to be a positive person you have to share positive things and think positive. Escape the negativity (of course some will be there, but work on minimizing it). We can focus on the outside beauty, but we need to also focus on the inner beauty as well. Her BeautifulLifeToday channel showcases her inspirational bits on how to be positive, happy and beautiful on the inside. You should check out both of her channels.

Both Andrea Lewis and Kris are amazing women that are positive. They smile and I can tell that they are positive people in life outside of YouTube. When I watch BeautifulLifeToday and Andrea Lewis I feel inspired. In general when I read inspirational quotes, books or surround myself by motivational people I get inspired.  Continue reading
