The Real Deal about Blogging

It occurred to me this morning when my boyfriend’s mom showed me an article she found called “The Truth About Blogging” that all anyone wants to know when they start a blog is, “how do I become successful” “how do I get noticed” “how can I get readers” “when and how can I have things sent to me for free.”

Thousands of people read this article, and you can read it too right HERE, (I don’t condone some of the language) I am assuming because they wanted to know the secret potion on blogging. There must be an easier way, there must be a secret equation that I can apply  to the backend of my site to ensure that I get thousands of views on each post and to make sure I have no bad days on my blog. Guess what I realized when I thought about that very thing myself? THERE IS! Do you want to know what it is?!?!….

EVERYTHING ON MY XMAS BUCKET LIST!

Happy last day of November everyone! I don’t know about you, but I cannot believe it’s going to be December and that 2018 is already almost OVER!

This year, I made a Christmastime bucketlist that I thought I would share with you all, because I know it’s hard to think of things you want to do before it’s all over. I know personally, Christmas usually comes and goes and I’ve barely watched one Christmas movie or even have seen the lights in my own town…how sad?! That’s why this year, before Thanksgiving, I sat down with my cute little Kate Spade notebook and really thought about what I wanted to do!

Holiday Gift Guide: FOR HIM!

The time has come, my friends! That’s right, it’s time we start shopping (or thinking about it) if you haven’t already! The holidays are here and I for one, am super excited about this year.

This year is the first time in four years that I am not in school and actually get to spend time at home leading up to Christmas and New Years and not just a couple weeks. I’ve made a Christmas bucket list and really hope to cross some things off of it! One of the items on my bucketlist, however, is to have all of my shopping done by December 15th…haha. In all seriousness, though, I do wanna have it all done (and wrapped) so that I can not worry about it and just relax in the week or so leading up to the holiday.

I have a ton to be thankful for this year, like every year! Thanksgiving is a fabulous time to reflect on your accomplishments, your life, family and friends because it is close to the end of the year, but not so close that your head is clogged with all of that Christmas/New Years mombo jombo. New Years seems like almost too much pressure to either say a resolution or look back at your fondest memory from the year. That’s why, this Thanksgiving, that’s what I’ll be doing.

I thought I might just jump right in and list what I am thankful for most this year:

The City of Dreams

IMG_1789.JPG

I am popping on today just to say hi! It’s been a while…I feel like I write that every time I write a post, which should be a sign that I should blog way more.

Either way, I’m here to talk about my second favorite city in the world. I know, I know, it’s second place. However, my first and only true love is the city of Florence in Italy, and it will always and forever have my heart. However, New York City is my second love and I am okay with that.

Commuting, working, pursuing, surviving

DSC_0108Okay so I may have had a little breakdown in my car this afternoon, but here we are–I am relaxing and writing a post, so I’m thriving (kinda).

Honestly, I think I deserve a breakdown, though. I am a college grad working three jobs just to stay afloat, follow my passion and make that moulaaaaa. You’d have a mental breakdown too (:

Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t change my life for the world, but sometimes I need a GOOD cry. I was leaving my second job, on my way to my third, realized I was about to run out of gas and wouldn’t have time to get any for the next two days because of my schedule. Hello, breakdown!

Get my fall eyes look!

Heyyyyy there everyone! Happy rainy Thursday to you all, I hope it’s treating you well.

I have this afternoon off, so I thought I’d pop on to write a post all about my fall makeup look and what I’ve been doing every day with my eyes! Tomorrow looks like it’s going to be the first chilly day (and stay that way) so what a better time than now?

Let’s get started.
