H&M Jumpsuit: Wedding Outfit & Talking Insecurities

img_2550

My brother recently edited these photos from over the summer, and this jumpsuit was only $16.99 from H&M with the original retail price at $34.99 I believe. There’s a funny story about this jumpsuit. I was going through a stage where I wasn’t really happy with my body. I woke up feeling bloated and just wasn’t feeling a fitted jumpsuit like this one, especially for a wedding.

At the time, I thought a black wrap dress would be safer, but looking at these photos, I really love how I looked that day. When you’re not really happy with how you look, it’s easy to magnify all your imperfections. Now, I’m so thankful I went outside my comfort zone, because at the time, the only thing I was looking at was my arm fat or my stomach peaking out.

Just a friendly reminder to take it easy on yourself. January is all about starting new, so naturally people are in fitness mode after the holidays. Remember to be kind to yourself because at the end of the day, you can be your biggest critic.

Reflecting on My College Experience

I will be moving to London for my master’s degree in journalism, and I am so excited that this article I wrote got published on Thought Catalog. It’s the perfect little goodbye to my undergaduate studies and experiences. It’s a reflection on everything from friendship to academics to my own personal growth, so I’d love for people to give it a read. You can check it out here !

It’s National Lipstick Day, and I got these lipsticks today at Rite Aid for 99 cents each. They’re from wet n wild, one of my favorite makeup brands, and the shades are from left to right: Blind Date, Cherry Frost and Black Orchid. I’m excited to try these colors out. Hope you liked this quick post.

Easy Banana & Peanut Butter Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup of 2 percent milk
  • 1 cup of ice
  • 2 tablespoons of peanut butter
  • almond essence

This was a super easy recipe, where you can throw in a sliced banana, some peanut butter, milk and ice and then just blend it all up. I also added a couple of drops of almond essence for a more nutty flavor. It’s great right before a workout or to jump-start your day.

Style Icon: Taryn Manning

Here’s a picture of Taryn Manning’s look from the Paleylive LA: An Evening With ‘Orange Is The New Black’ event yesterday. I loved her ring by Zoe Chicco. I liked that her piece was classic and tailored, but it still has an edgy vibe to it.
