the-beauty-chef

Hey, guys! Today is the first day of a new segment “Wellness Wednesday” where I hope to publish a wellness-related post every Wednesday! I also changed the category name from “Happie Thoughts” to “Wellness + Happie Thoughts”. I really want to focus on writing more wellness posts here on the blog because I think wellness is extremely important, and I think everyone needs to pay a little more attention to their overall wellness!! If you saw my most recent YouTube video “what I got for Christmas“, you know one of the things I bought with one of my gift cards I received was The Beauty Chef, an absolutely GORGEOUS cookbook...

F A S H I O N :: How to Style One Sweater in 4 Ways

urban-outfitters-statement-sleeves

Hey, guys! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Today’s fashion post (which hopefully becomes a more frequent thing) features ONE sweater that I styled in FOUR totally different ways (one being yesterday’s Thanksgiving outfit)!! The point of this post is to emphasize that it’s not about the quantity of clothes that you have, but about their quality and how you style them! A lot of times people feel like they need a new outfit for every occasion (and sometimes I do too), but 90% of the time that is not the case! Maybe your wardrobe doesn’t feel complete without a sweater in every color, but usually, there’s no need...

L I F E S T Y L E :: FIRST Youtube Video + Room Tour!

Hey, guys! AHHH. I finally decided I am going to make a Youtube channel so I filmed my first Youtube video this morning! IT WAS SO AWKWARD. like so. awkward. It just feels so weird to talk to a camera like it’s people, but this is something I really want to do so I know I have to just suck it up and get over my fears! I’m hoping to post a video every week on Youtube with a variety of different topics (basically everything this blog is about -beauty tips, fashion videos, DIYs, how-to’s, and maaayyybe eventually some gym videos)! Today, I started off with a room tour because...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Being Vegan for the Past Month

Why-i-went-vegan

Hey, guys! So I DID the V-word! I went vegan!  I’ve never been a huge meat-eater, and I’ve been on and off vegetarian for years now, but a couple years ago if you asked me if I thought I’d be vegan, I would have said HELL no! I never thought that I would be vegan! I always thought that only super-strict, boring, crazies went vegan…until I did my research and realized how many amazing benefits there are to being vegan! It’s been one month, I’ve cheated 4 times, and I’m still considering myself vegan because that sh*t’s hard to quit (that sh*t being cheese). Becoming vegan is a huge lifestyle change,...

R E V I E W :: Bondi Sands Self Tanning Foam

Bondi-sands-tanning-foam-review

Hey, guys! For years now, I have followed beauty bloggers, fashion bloggers, and Instagram models on (you guessed it), Instagram! These influencers are known for creating major hype for certain beauty products, and usually, if enough bloggers praise a certain beauty product, they become “cult favorites” (Better than Sex mascara, anyone?). One product that I’ve seen all of my favorite beauty bloggers promoting is Bondi Sands tanning foam. I’ve seen Bondi sands alllllll over the internet, and I’ve ALWAYS wanted to try it, and since my summer tan is completely gone and I’m extremely sad about it, I ordered myself a bottle of the Ultra dark tanning foam to see...

B E A U T Y :: My Hair Care Routine

Hey, guys! a couple weeks ago I shared my Daily Makeup Routine with you, and today I am sharing my hair care routine! People ask me a lot of questions about my hair and how I get it to be the way it is, so I figured I should share every detail of my routine! My hair care routine is a lot less strict than my skincare, but I do have a weekly routine that I follow to keep my hair as healthy as possible! – HAIR HISTORY – When I was in high school I had suuuper long, blonde, and UNHEALTHY hair. Why was it so unhealthy, you ask?...
