Life Update and Guest Blogging Opportunities.

Hello fashionistas!
I've had a lot going on in my life lately and I just thought I'd fill you guys in on everything. 
Summer has been going on for a week and a half and I spent all of this week volunteering at a summer art camp for kids. It was a blast and I managed to log a lot of volunteer hours too! 
Basically everyday after camp I spent the day with my boyfriend just having fun and enjoying summer. We're trying to spend as much time together before a.) I leave to go on vacation for 3 weeks and b.) he leaves to go back to college in August. 
Here's a picture of us from this week.

Today my best friend, Lily, gets back from her week long vacation and I have missed her SO SO SO much! 
She's actually coming on vacation with us for a week (and leaves this upcoming Sunday). We're leaving on Friday to drive up and I actually get to help drive this year, exciting. We've gone on vacation together 2 years ago, we're basically sisters. 

This picture is from a few months ago, but I still love it! 

I've been dealing for the past few months with the fact that she's moving 4 states away right after our vacation. I've honestly been trying to pretend that it isn't happening because I cry every time I think about it. This past week it has really hit me that she's leaving. I broke down in tears just the other day.We've been best friends for going on 8 years. She's my person, can read my mind, and always understands what I'm trying to say. We're over at each others' houses 3-4 times a week, not to mention the number of sleepovers we've had over the years. We have clothes at each others' houses so that we never have to pack a proper overnight bag! We're planning on flying/riding a train to each other every 2 months. It honestly breaks my heart because I know that I'll never find another best friend like her. I love my best friend and I'm not ever going to forget about her! Thank God for Skype/texting/phones/email. It's going to be tough, but I know our friendship is strong enough to make it through this. I'm definitely going to make the most out of this trip with her. Lily, thank you for being such an incredible friend to me over the past 8 years. I hope that we have a friendship that lasts a lifetime. 

On another note, due to the fact that I'm vacationing for 3 weeks I probably will not be able to post that frequently on here. For 2 weeks of my vacation I won't be able to access the internet unless I go to one of the cafes in town. I'm going to try to schedule some posts to go up while I'm gone, but I'm just warning you guys that it might not be the regular every other day posting. 
If anyone would like to guest blog, I would love that. I'd be looking for makeup posts/tutorials, fashion posts, or posts that discuss the trends of summer. If you're interested, please shoot me an email at with the idea of what you would like to post about. 

Anyways, thanks for reading this post and letting me fill you in on my life outside of the makeup and fashion. 

I love you guys!

  5. Oh sounds like you've so far had a great summer & that you will have an amazing remainder of your summer! You and your boyfriend are so very cute together! Perfect couple! <3 I'm sorry to hear your best friend is moving away! My sister is my best friend and she just moved away from me last week, so I understand totally what you are going through :( You are so very right that at least we have email/skype/texting to keep in touch & so I know you two will still stay strong friends!
