Advice to High School Graduates


Dear High School Graduate,

Congratulations! Graduating High School is a big deal, you may feel like you haven't accomplished a lot and it may even feel silly to be proud of yourself but it's not. High School is filled with so many ups and downs, it is a time of growing from a teenager to a young adult. Think back to your first day of High School, you were probably so nervous and timid. The pressure of getting good grades, being involved in after school activities and maintaining relationships with family and friends is so overwhelming.

Saying Goodbye

 
   Saying goodbye can be extremely difficult. There are many things we have to say goodbye to in life. In my case I've had to say goodbye to my grandma, grandpa, Cutie and now my grandparents house. The past year has been far from perfect. It's easy to look at someone's life and think they have it all together, I know I have looked at others social media pages and thought "wow, they have it all, their life is perfect". Most of the time the people who seem "perfect" are often the ones hurting the most. For me, I love to post happy things on social media and YouTube to distract me from the reality of my life.

My Summer Bucket List 2017


Hello loves! Lately I've been thinking a lot about this summer and how I want it to be the BEST summer yet. As I get older it gets easier for me to try new things and go different places, I no longer need the approval from my parents (even though I still ask them because I'm too much of a good girl) That's why I wanted to create a summer bucket list of all the fun things I hope to do! Some of these things are big and others are small. I find that the little things always create the best memories.

Marilyn Monroe's Diet & Exercise Plan

Marilyn Monroe was known for having an amazing body, women today are still trying to look like her. I have always loved how womanly her figure was, she even had fat rolls. Women today seem to think fat rolls are something to be ashamed of. They are totally normal and Marilyn is the perfect example of that. Women in the 1950's were actually shamed for being too skinny! There were many advertisements shaming skinny girls and telling them men won't like them unless they gain weight. One said "if you want to be popular, you can't afford to be skinny". I know it's hard to believe, things have changed so much. They even had products for women to take to gain weight.

Crosley Record Player Review


Recently I got a Crosley record player. I've been wanting to get one for so long and I finally decided to splurge and get it! I got the Crosley X UO Cruiser Velvet Bluetooth Record Player in PINK! The record player I have JUST sold out:( Here is the same player in a different finish Crosley X UO Cruiser Metallic Bluetooth Record Player. I've had this record player for a couple months so I know what I like about it and what I don't like. That being said I am going to review this record player for anyone who is interested in getting one.
