For the longest time I thought I was going to be an interior designer of some sort.

Anyways, to shop the items below just click on the photos! And everything will be budget friendly of course because we all know college expenses are terrible!!!!! Note everything below is available in several colors and patterns so if what you see isn't the color you are looking for, chances are if you click on the item you will see the color option you are looking for!
I changed my hair AGAIN! If you asked me a year ago what my hair style would be I would of never of guessed I'd be at this point. I was terrified of cutting my hair, terrified of dying it. Scared to try something new and then all the sudden I don't know what happened but I just cut it all off. For girls a huge thing is hair, how it's styled what it looks like and I was the exact same way! I wanted my hair long and pretty. So I kept my hair long and natural. But I discovered how beautiful the cancer patients are with no hair. Seriously no hair? That's like a girls nightmare. But they own it and it's beautiful! So I thought you know why in the world could I not mix it up? So I started and cut 11 inches off and dyed it blonde. Then every time I went back I did something different wether I cut more hair off or dyed it some more. It's all beautiful as long as you like it. My friend told me something " it's just hair " she said. And it is. You can dye it cut it and if you hate it you can change it. It's not something permanent. Life is so serious and everything is like life changing especially at this age. You are choosing your career, trying to figure out your life and it's stressful!! So why not have fun with your hair? So I'm gonna keep changing it until I find something I'm 100% happy with. This time I blasted it out and went total like white blonde. I was nervous about it but realized, it's just hair. There's so many other things In life I have to worry about and my hair will not be one of them! Who knows maybe I'll dye it pink next, no lie I kinda thought about it hahaha but if you've been wanting to change something up I say go for it! Have some fun, not everything has to be so serious! My hairdresser friend Hailey couldn't of said if any better when she said "I kind of look at it like your hair is your crown, it's an expression of who you are and your personality! So whatever it is that YOU want to try, go for it! You rock that pink hair, you work that Lob, heck go for that undercut you're scared of trying. It's your crown, find something that fits you and wear it proudly. " So perfectly said!!!! So go for it!!!

I've been a regular at the nail salon for about 2 years. I go once a month and usually get a manicure and pedicure. For about a year I have been using SNS and I have never looked back! My last trip to the nail salon I went a little out of my comfort zone and got longer tips put on and in the coffin shape, something I have never done before! I think this will start to be a regular thing as I LOVE it!!!! I'm completely obsessed with it. I was worried about my nails being to long and not being able to do regular day activities because of it but after 3 days I'm already used to it! and I really havent had a single problem! So if you are looking for something different and fun to try with your nails, you HAVE to try this! Sadly I start my training for school august 1st and I don't think I will be able to keep my nails this long, but as soon as I am done I'm headed back to the salon! SNS lasts forever and doesn't chip or anything. They look perfect from the day I get my nails done till the day I go back to get them redone! Honestly I only have to go back because the SNS has great vitamins in it and causes my nails to grow like never before! My nail health has seriously never been like this. They were always short and weak and now that has been totally turned around and I have to thank SNS for that! If your nails are also short and weak and you struggle to get them to grow you should try out SNS for a couple months! SO worth the money, and you can thank me later!
So you are a guest at the wedding! But what do you wear as a guest to the wedding?? A lot of people believe that they know what they're supposed to wear to the wedding but I'm here to tell you guys that most of you probably have no idea. I work in the wedding industry and I am constantly amazed at the outfits that these girls wear to these weddings!! First off let me say it's not about you! It is not about you, it is not the time to play dress up, it's not a time to see how hot you can be!! It's the brides day!!! So with that being said there are 4 colors that you should stay away from at almost all weddings you attended. Hopefully you guys know this one, you should NEVER wear white or any shade of white. However it is OK to wear a patterned dress with white in it. I still do not practice this but it is accepted. The next one is the color black. This one is kind of controversial, since some weddings are listed on the invitation that they are a black tie attire. It's really important to know what kind of wedding you're going to be attending. If it is a black tie wedding black would be ok, if it's not a black tie wedding stay away from the color black. However it is accepted to wear pattern dresses that involves the color black. The next color is light beige. You need to stay away from this color for several reasons, The first one being that the color is still too close to the color white, The second reason is that if you are paler than the average person, this color dress will just blend right in with your skin tone... The next color you should try and stay away from kind of has its own category but the color is red. And that is because red is an attention getter color. If there's a photo taken of everyone, and you are wearing red you are going to be the main attraction in the photo. This however does not just go for the color red it also goes with very bright attention getter colors. You do have to be careful because sometimes it's OK to wear the bright attention getter colors like red, orange, and yellow. The proper setting for that would be an outside summer wedding... Now that we've covered the main colors you should stay away from when being a guest at a wedding there is one more group that you need to be aware of. If you have the luxury of knowing what color the bridesmaids will be wearing, you should try your best to stay away from that color. You do not want to be mistaken as part of the bridal party when you are simply just a guest. It is not looked down upon to wear the same color as the bridesmaids if you were unaware but if you do you know what color they will be wearing I suggest staying away from that color as well. This will be different for each wedding you attend! So with all that being said I stick with pastel colors! And you never want to show too much. The word i'm looking for is elegant. And gentlemen! you should match your dates, that's pretty simple :) also "the don't wear black rule" does not apply to men wearing suits!
Hope this helps everyone with all the wedding festivities!!!
