HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Embracing your Qualities, Not your Flaws

Hey, guys! Today I want to talk about embracing yourself and embracing your best qualities, instead of focusing on your flaws! We live in a weird society where everyone is constantly spreading the message that “everyone is beautiful” and that we should “embrace our flaws”, and yet no one follows the rule for themselves? We’re all spreading this great advice, meanwhile, no one is listening to it for ourselves!! I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t like my flaws -that’s why they’re called flaws. I know no one else views them the way I do, but it’s hard not to notice them when it’s a part of you!...

B E A U T Y :: 10 Summer Beauty Faves

ย ย  Hey, guys! Today I am sharing my summer faves in beauty and fashion! I use each of these things on the daily or at least weekly, so these products and accessories really embody summer for me! – BEAUTY FAVES – 1. Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer- I like to use a combination of the Physician formula super BB powder which contains SPF 30, and the Physicians Formula butter bronzer (which smells like a pina colada) for a nice even sun-kissed glow that protects me from the sun! The scent of the butter bronzer is to-die-for and the texture of the powder really is like butter ( I mean that in...

R E V I E W :: Alba Botanica Facial Sunscreen

Hey, guys! Happy July! Today I am sharing with you, my FAVORITE face sunscreen ever, which says a lot because I have tried out a million different face sunscreens, and I’ve hated them all. I know I shouldn’t hate sunscreen because it’s so beneficial to use, but 99% of sunscreens I have tried in my life have made me break out, dried out my skin, or just give me a ghostly white cast over my face. I hate how sunscreen feels on my face, and I don’t love the smell. All around I’m not a fan of sunscreen, and I will usually just skip it if I can. UNTIL NOW....

H A I R T U T O R I A L :: Easy Boho Braids

Hey, guys! Today I am sharing my first ever hair tutorial! One of the original reasons I started this blog was to share braids and other cool hairstyles (which I have been majorly slacking on) so hopefully expect to see more like this in the future! I think any simple outfit looks amazing as long as you have good hair, and braids can really take things to the next level! These boho braids are sooo easy, anyone can do them as long as you can do a basic braid! There’s nothing fancy going on here, even though it looks like you’ve put hours into your hair!

T R A V E L :: Boothbay Harbor, Maine

Hey, guys! Today’s post is all about Boothbay Harbor in Maine, AKA the cutest little town ever! Boothbay is an aesthetic little water town in Maine that is full of general stores, quirky little shops (including a whole store dedicated to whoopie pies), dogs EVERYWHERE (!!!), and good eats (especially if you’re into lobster). It’s a tourist’s dream! For the past couple years, I have been coming to Boothbay with my boyfriend’s family, who has been coming for the past 50 years! It’s such a beautiful little town, and we had so much fun, so you know I had to blog about it! Keep on reading! I got 1 scoop...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Finding your Community

Hey, guys! Today’s post was sparked by a conversation I had with my best friend about a week ago, and then randomly again with my boyfriend just days later. We were talking about how every hobby or profession comes with its own little world, as long as you dig deep enough! For example, there is a massive “beauty” community on Instagram, and we all share products, hashtags, ideas, inspiration, and even certain terms that someone who wasn’t involved in the community wouldn’t know about. On the opposite end, there’s a kayaking community of people who know everything about kayaking, from obscure apparel brands to the rules of the water, and...
