Depression- The Unfashionable Side of Life

Whenever people ask “How are you?” I find myself wondering exactly how I should answer that polite greeting. You see, most of us know when people ask you that; they don’t mean it.

Instead, … Continue reading Depression- The Unfashionable Side of Life

AP Review: Curve Girl

One of my biggest challenges this year was gaining an astronomical amount of weight in a seemingly short period of time; and still finding great places to shop.

I never counted her out … Continue reading Curvy Spotlight: Classy But Cocky Apparel

I only recently started experimenting this year around July when I knew I was headed to the TCF Style Expo. Definitely wasn’t my best look, but I was literally just learning which foundation and concealers … Continue reading The Evolution of My Makeup Skills
