Summer Makeup You Won’t Melt Through

It's finally summer which means means wearing less makeup or even going makeup free. Here is my everyday summer makeup routine!

Summer Clothes and Fashion Guide

Need new summer clothes? Here's what I've been loving.

Over the weekend I did some major damage and bought so many summer clothes. Luckily, I don’t shop that often and when I do, it’s to get new items for a season.
