Fashion trends

5 WAYS TO INSTANTLY TO EDGE UP YOUR SKIRT OUTFIT

5 WAYS TO INSTANTLY TO EDGE UP YOUR SKIRT OUTFIT

"Slider, STYLE"

Skirts are not my favorite things to wear.To be very honest, I've always felt like skirts gave me a really not so cool plain Jane look that I like to think does not resonate with my personality. So skirts are not the items I usually reach out for when putting an outfit together. But I know we cannot totally forego skirts in our wardrobe (I mean we can but why would we want to when there's a much sexier alternative like switching up. Edge up skirt outfit) plus I know not everyone is like me, some people actually do prefer skirts or wear skirts exclusively. I find myself thinking of ways which I can edge up that basic skirt in my wardrobe that I haven't worn in ages. Below I have listed out my…

5 THINGS I LEARNED FROM BEING SINGLE THIS PAST YEAR

5 THINGS I LEARNED FROM BEING SINGLE THIS PAST YEAR

"RELATIONSHIPS, Slider"

Heartbroken! Heartbreaker, betrayal, fulfillment, bliss. Done it all and seen it all. I started dating at a really young age, and ever since it's just been a non stop roller coster of relationships for me. I've had my fair share of weird, amazing, cool, not so cool and downright awful relationship. The phases of my relationships included planning a life with someone, obsessing over exes, and even throwing myself into flirtationships where I became a boy-crazed mess. Eww! So at my very young age, I had already gone through so much. I've learned a lot in these process but I decided it was time to learn about myself And so after my last breakup, which ended on a pretty good ground (story for another day) I decided it was time to try this being single…

CLEANSING BALMS AND HOW TO YOU USE THEM

"BEAUTY"

Cleanse cleanse cleanse and cleanse! With soaps, face wash, scrubs, foams and oils.. the list of cleansing agents we all have and use in our skincare regimen is endless. And here I am now, about to talk about yet one more: Cleansing balms. If you have never heard of it, raise your hands? And if you have and have been wondering if it's worth a try then yes, it is and I'm about to tell you why. I first heard about the cleansing balms when I was doing my research on Korean skincare last year, I saw a cleansing balm was a staple product they used a lot since most Korean skincare routine involved double cleansing. I immediately became obsessed and wanted to own one, but I never got to actually buying simply cause…

IT HAPPENED TO ME AND IT CHANGED ME

All I went through last year!

"UNCATEGORIZED"

Last year, I really learned how to cry. I cried until my throat hurt and my eyes dried out. And then I laughed. It seems everything that had never happened to me in all my years of life happened to me last year.. I lost someone very dear to me.. In my whole more than two decades of living, I had never truly lost anyone that really shook me quiet like last year. I never understood what loss meant until it felt like someone was reaching into my chest and ripping my heart apart. I got robbed at gun point.. Prior to this, the only gun I've ever seen were in movies, or the hunters gun or the most realistic where the ones soldiers held at check points. And then they came into my…

HOW TO DEAL WITH LOST LUGGAGE WHEN TRAVELING

HOW TO DEAL WITH LOST LUGGAGE WHEN TRAVELING

"UNCATEGORIZED"

Toni Braxton recently lost her luggage which had her allegedly $500, 000 engagement ring, she left it on a plane in her Louis Vuitton luggage and although the bag was later found, most of the items were missing from it, including her engagement ring! She pleaded with whoever "borrowed" the luggage to return the ring only and keep the rest of the items, obviously it holds sentimental as well as huge financial value. The airlines are helping with the search for the singers missing jewelry. Most of us are not Toni Braxton and I can imagine we will rather not lose our luggage or it's items. But these things happen. When you travel frequently, you may find yourself in one of the most frustrating situations in the world when your luggage is MIA and you have…
