“Oh, I’m sorry.”
Wait……. Why am I sorry? That person bumped into me.
Why did I just apologize for laughing? That person is laughing too.
I do this all of the time and if you don’t know what I am talking about, I am talking about the fact that I apologize for being me. I can’t help myself and it’s a very bad habit. I can’t be the only person that does this. I recently made a promise to myself that I am no longer going to apologize for being me. I’m going to start living my best life and stop second guessing myself. I’m going to laugh however I want, I’m going to walk freely, I’m going to smile if I want to. I have a right to be on this earth, just as much as anyone else. Apologizing for everything that I do is something that I do as an insecurity. If I apologize, that means that I am lesser than the person that I am apologizing to. I know that I am not any less than that person. I am a human being that has emotions, I am a human being that walks down a street, and I am a human being that compliments something that I like. If you are like me and apologize for something that you didn’t need to apologize for, I want you to stand with me and stop apologizing. Tell yourself that you’re allowed to laugh, you’re allowed to breathe, and you’re allowed to be yourself. Promise yourself that you are going to stop saying sorry for no reason.
I would like a friend of mine for inspiring this blog post (you know who you are).

There is nothing that I love more than a Friday morning!
Okay I lied, I love amazing beauty products and a couple fashion pieces. Here are a few that I have been loving lately. Enjoy.
First things first, foundation! I cannot get enough of this new foundation from Maybelline. I have repurchased it twice and it’s still considered a new product. I am so in love with the SuperStay Long-Lasting Full Coverage Foundation. I get so many compliments on my skin when I wear it!
To go along with that amazing foundation, I have been obsessed with the Ghost Baking Powder from Revolution. I bake every day and can’t get enough.
Lately, I have preferred glossy lips over matte. In my bag, I have the Pixi by Petra LipLift Max Lip Gloss in the shade Honey Sheen.
One product that I must mention is my Wet Brush. I don’t know what I would do without it. It gets all of the tangles out of my hair, without all of the ripping and damaging. I need four more for backup!
As for fashion, I have two pieces and they are both from Target.
The first piece is a backpack, I am so in love with it! Everything from the storage space all the way down to the color! It is the Woman’s Foldover Faux Leather Backpack. It is just stunning.
Lastly, I have the cutest shoes to share with you! They are the Women’s Alloy Slip-On Sneaker. They have the cutest bow, they’re black, and they go with anything!! Enough said.
I hope that you enjoyed this Friday Favorites! There will be more to come.
You know me, always rocking Torrid fashion.
I’m sure that you have had one of those days before when you wake up and everything goes wrong. As soon as you open those big, beautiful eyes, you can already tell that everything is going to shit. You woke up late, you burnt your forehead on your hair straightener, and now you can’t find your keys. I have one of those days about twice a week, trust me, you’re not alone!
Instead of letting that day continue to go horribly, here are some things that you can do to change the way your day is going to go.
The first thing that you can do is take a deep breath. Bring your thoughts to your attention and tell yourself that you are going to have an amazing day. Or cry….. Whatever helps. I’m just kidding, but stop and give yourself a minute to forget about all of those terrible events and think of something that makes you happy.
The next thing that you can do to change your day is to go somewhere that makes you happy. If you are at work, take a break and go get some coffee. If coffee isn’t your thing, go do something that is your thing. Grab a cupcake, go for a walk, take some selfies, whatever you need to do to make yourself feel a little better.
If those aren’t doing the trick, read your favorite quote. Read something that will put a smile on your face. If you don’t have a favorite quote, go to Pinterest, they have tons for you!
If you have tried all of the above and nothing seems to be working, call someone that you love. Just let it all pour out to them. If no one will answer, message me, I’ll pick up!
I always have those days where damaging and taking the time to do my hair, just doesn’t sound pleasing. Am I alone on this, or do you have those days too? For today’s post, I am sharing a simple and quick Hairstyle that will be perfect for any occasion. You can rock this look to the gym, a party, work, and even a date!
For this Hairstyle all that is needed is:
- Some type of comb to split your hair into two parts
- Some clear elastics
- Topsy tail tool
You can purchase all of these items at your local drug store.
- Part your hair into two parts down the middle, (like pigtails). Tie away the half of hair that you will be using later, and then the other half we are going to section a portion off. Take about a quarter of your hair and tie it with a clear elastic.
- Now stick the topsy tail tool through the top of the section that is secured by the elastic.
- Pull the ponytail upward through the hoop of the topsy tail tool, and then pull the tool down through the pony to create the topsy tail.
- After the first topsy tail is created, grab another section of hair while adding the first section, and continue. You can create as many sections as you would like. I usually do about four on each side.
- Repeat on the other side, and there you have it!
This hairstyle takes less than three minutes to create!
Happ New Year!
I am so in love with this top that I purchased from Poshmark! The brand is Ava & Viv, usually about $30 and only cost me $10!
