I feel like my past 5 posts have started with the same thing, making excuses for where I’ve been.
And you wanna know something?
There shouldn’t be excuses. I have time. Massive amounts of time. And you know what I do during that time?
October was a great month filled with a lot of cool opportunities! If you’re new here, every month I share somethings that made my month great. Why do I do this? To show that even when you don’t think your life is going right there is always going to be something positive!
Although it’s only October and I have only been here a few months, I have learned so much. I am here today to share all the great and not so great things I have learned so far!
I write here trying to balance college, a social life, and being a content creator. I’m struggling but I think I’m going to make it. If you;re new here, even month I do something the features what made my month better.
A lot has happened in my life during July and August. I took a break for blogging and YouTube, I moved, and I made a whole bunch of crazy life changes.
If you’re new to my blog you’re probably a little bit confused. What is “Insert month Happiness”?
Every month I talk about a few think that have made my month great.
Because it’s important to reflect on what makes you happy and keeps you going. It’s essential for self love and all together happiness.
I’ve decided to start a new part on my blog capturing the adventures I go on creating art as a college student. My awesome roomie and new best friend models and two of her photographer friends came up for the weekend and let me tell you, it was a kick ass thing.
When I first started my job two years ago I remember asking “Why would you stock for morning crew if they don’t stalk for you?” and my manager responded saying “Because it’s the right thing to do.” I’ve learned a lot for my job but this is something that will stick with me for a while.
Dear An Abusive Ex,
I refused to let anyone touch me for six months after we ended things. I didn’t even let my mom hug me. I can tell you exactly when I was when I told my mom why I didn’t like to be hugged anymore.
I have recently started a series on my blog showcasing my cruelty free makeup collection. The first post shows all of my face products while my second post shows half of my eye products!
In this post I will be showing the other half of my eye shadow pallets and all of my lip products! Keep in mind all of these products are cruelty free because that is something I am incredibly passionate about!
I started thrifting when I was a Sophomore in high school. I love doing it and it’s a passion I have so I decided to write a post about why I love it.
1. You Find Amazing Things
When thrifting it’s common to find items that no one else will have. Items are unique and beautiful and something different from everyone else.
2. It’s Cheaper
Compared to traditional shopping thrifting is a significantly cheaper way to shop. You can spend $5 on a pair of well made jeans compared to $50 at department stores for the same effect. It is even common to find name brand items for less.
3. It’s Fun
There is no feeling like finding an item that fits perfectly or is name brand for a low cost. You’re not only saving money but the odds are you’ll have fun even looking. You have no idea where the clothes are coming from so it’s cool to imagine.
4. It’s Eco Friendly
When buying used items you’re saving something from being thrown into a landfill. You’re inside buying an item from a small business and not always supporting corporate empires.
5. The Feeling You Get When Telling People
Almost every time I’m asked where I got something my response is thrifting. It shocks people that you can find amazing pieces for cheap.
Thrifting and used clothes are my passion. I often make YouTube videos of my hauls (here is one ). I love it and I hope you have a chance to find amazing pieces just like me.
