    Barefoot Blonde Hair Extensions Review

    Hi guys! As many of you already know, I got hair extensions! Believe it or not, I have never owned extensions before. Like ever. Luckily, I was blessed with hair that grows like a weed, so my hair has always been long and I just never felt I needed them! Recently though, I have been wanting to focus on different fun hair styles and braids on my blog and social platforms. I just love how many beautiful and cute styles can be created to switch up a typical curled look! So with that being said, I went…

    Beauty Habits I Live By

    Hi everyone! I hope you all had a relaxing weekend. It has been raining non-stop here in Knoxville for the past 5 days or so and the forecast isn’t looking much better. I have never seen it rain this long before! I feel like I’m back in Seattle. But, because of all this rain I have been using it as an excuse to stay at home, get some work done, give my skin a break by going make-up free (this would explain why I’ve been a little MIA), and getting a little beauty pampering in! I was supposed to have a shoot this weekend to show you all a super cute outfit I put together but that got rescheduled due to the weather so instead of that planned post I want to share with you all some beauty habits…
