THINX REVIEW – THE PERIOD PANTIES THAT YOU SHOULD TRY

Oh why the heck not?! We’re all girls here, aren’t we? So let’s talk about menstruation and the latest and greatest way to handle your monthly visitor. Like any bleeding lady would be, I was extremely skeptical about THINX. No pads? No tampons? No cups? Just panties? This can’t be real. But it’s real! In short, I am a convert to THINX. In long, there are things you should know about these before you buy. Read on for my full review – the good, the bad and the bloody – of these revolutionary period panties.

ESSIE GEL COUTURE NAIL POLISH IS A GAME-CHANGER!

Everyone listen up! Have you tried the new Essie Gel Couture polish? It’s a game-changer in the world of at-home manicures. After weeks of listening to my sister telling me how great it was, I finally tried it and I’m a convert. I’ve been looking for a solution to getting gel manicures in the salon for two reasons – expense and time. I simply can’t afford to spend too much of either right now. This nail polish is the answer! 

MARCH WRITING CHALLENGE + RED DRESS IN WINTER

Hello Dear Readers! Since the start of 2017, I’ve been hard at work on my very own happiness project. Each month I’m working on something or a couple things that will both challenge and change me. Ideally I keep them going in the months to follow and add on something new with each month. For March, I’m challenging myself to write on this blog as much as I possibly can. Ideally that means 5 days per week, but I’m also learning to be flexible with myself as I strive to meet major goals, so we’ll aim for as close to 20 posts as I can get.

Check out these before and after pics to see what I mean…

SHOULD STYLE BLOGGERS TALK ABOUT POLITICS?

Help! I have writer’s block. But not because I’ve run out of topics to write about. It’s because I’m still not that interested in style and beauty posting these days with the current political climate. It feels trivial. I feel hopeless and like I can’t help. And it seems pretty tone deaf to put content out there and not acknowledge all that’s going on, just smiling all happy like my life isn’t affected by it and hey, look my outfit’s great. The truth is, I’m struggling. But who isn’t? 

LIFE LATELY IN ATLANTA

Happiest of Fridays, Dear Readers. It’s been a while since I’ve done a Life Lately post so I think it’s about time to sum up my recent days in a series of fun pictures and stories! This’ll be a short and sweet one. I’m starting it out with a picture of a genuine smile because sometimes I think it’s important just to look in the mirror (or the camera) and just give yourself some positive reinforcement. Wherever you are today, friend, you’re doing a-okay in my book.
