A few weeks ago, I was in contact with a company called Select Specs. They offered to send me a pair of glasses and I didn't hesitate to accept, It couldn't have come at a better time! I had just broken my previous pair of glasses a few weeks beforehand and I had tried to salvage them by taping the little ear handle thing (what are those even called?) back onto the frame, but let's be real that's not cute at all.

I've become obsessed with trying out new products, whether it be store bought or homemade, and as I was browsing the internet today I decided, why not combine some ingredients and create my own? I've seen a ton of different variations, but this is the mixture I came up with.

Scrolling through the 'roomspiration' tag on both instagram and tumblr is one of my favorite things to do. There's nothing better than seeing someone's individual style being binded together to create one beautiful space.

Out of all the room designs I've found myself being drawn to, there is always some type of wall art. Im not too big into abstract art, but I can definitely appreciate every variation. My personal favorites are the simple ones - a framed crisp, white paper with words, quotes and cute sayings etched on to it. 

In case any of you are looking for inspiration or coincidentally looking for wall quotes at this very moment, I thought I'd share some of my favorites I've come across.

One of the best emotions anyone can feel is happiness. Over the past 7/8 years, it's the one I've completely lost touch with. It's a feeling that has become so foreign to me, I'm not even sure I'm okay with feeling it. 

I don't want to speak for everyone when I say this, but im sure a good amount of you who deal with anxiety, depression or any other form of mental illness will relate to what I'm about to say.

We've be through such a roller coaster of emotions, both the highs and the lows - most of which are unfortunately lows, our minds have adapted and made it our 'normal'. Though it's a negative way of thinking, us constantly expecting the worst in a situation is our key to survival.

I've never been that into instagram - posting wise, but I do love having a little nose around everyone else's pages. These are some of the pages I constantly find myself being drawn to.

I can't begin to explain my love for hair extenstions. They have the ability to change up your entire look within minutes. Whether you're wanting to spice  up your short bob or just want to give some volume and extra legnth to your already long locks, they do it all. I mean... if you can achieve it, just weave it, right? 

Okay, I totally didn't come up with that last line, but I loved it and just had to say it. Props to the person who made it up with it. GENIUS.

At the beginning of May, I decided I wanted to start my 'natural hair journey'. I had been obsessed with watching other girls' videos on youtube tracking their progress and was inspired by their results. After having completely damaging my hair by constantly straightening and bleaching it, it completely stopped growing and was the same lengths for years
