Fall is one of my most favorite times of year — it’s a season full of some of my favorite fashion trends: earth-toned colors, sweaters and scarves, boots. The weather is just crisp enough to feel a change coming but not so cold that the tip of your nose starts to slowly go numb every… Read More how i dress-up graphic tees [for fall]
It’s not quite summer yet, but it’s beginning to feel like it, and two of my biggest struggles with this season is the heat and the humidity that come along with it. It can be difficult to look and feel your best when nature is actively against you, but I’ve recently been loving a few… Read More The Beauty Products that I’m Loving this Summer (2018)
In lieu of moving back to Chapel Hill in two days, I wanted to give you all a blog post that is a little bit more fun, laid-back, and simple.

While going from class-to-class on Tuesday,… Read More I Went a Week Without Makeup & This is What Happened

I guess there have been times in my past where I was “small” or what some people would consider “skinny,” but I’ve never had a flat stomach, or small legs, or a petite figure. So I’ve… Read More Skinny Shaming is a Thing Too
“I love talking to white people,” Dia told me in our bathroom this past Sunday night. What started as sharing a face mask ended up–as usual for me–in a political conversation. We talked for at least an hour, myself ignoring my French homework, and Dia openly talking about race tensions in our country. Needless to say,… Read More Whites Too Afraid to Educate
