SUPER Personal and Nosy Q&A

I love talking to all of you guys, catching up and listening to what you’ve all been up to. I always am super candid on my Twitter (not that I’m not myself on my blog). It has been a while since I did a “get to know you” type post and I’ve gotten a bunch more new followers and visitors since my last one. I decided to do something different and to answer all of the super personal questions you guys sent me! (By the way, being nosy isn’t necessarily a bad thing…. there’s no shame in being curious!) Bernie, Max, dating, break ups, bloggers that hate me, and blogging full-time. Stalkers, weird DMs… I answered it all. I hope you guys all enjoy and get to know me a bit better! By the way, I think now would be the time to shamelessly plug my Snapchat. I am always sharing little videos and snaps of what I’ve been up to and super fun and exclusive content! I do hauls, mini reviews, and tell lowkey …

Being The Unabridged Sass

First and foremost, I am writing this blog post on my new Macbook Pro, so I am excited af because of that. I have had so many requests about my fishtail braid and my makeup on Snapchat (and from the pictures in this post!). I will share the tutorial and products on Thursday, I pinky promise. Anyways… on to the blog post! – I have a confession for all of you. I envision various scenes in my future, and imagine them woven into various blog posts. A post all about how I graduated from graduate school paired with what I wore for graduation. I imagine myself writing a post about wedding planning and things I wish I knew, and ultimately a post about my actual wedding. I see myself, posting pictures of my baby’s nursery after I obsessively decorate it and drag my husband to the hardware store. All these scenes in my life have one element that’s shared: these stories are all told on my blog. I may not outwardly write about what’s going …

25 Before 25

Hey guys! I had already made a bucket list post a little while ago, but I decided that I wanted a “list” that was a little bit more pressing. I’m turning twenty-two in August and the fact that I’m nearing 1/4 of my life has hit me. I’ll be twenty-five in a few years and there are quite a few things I want to do in the next few years. A twenty-five before twenty-five list is a pretty common blog post idea (so are bucket lists) so I decided that I would share mine. I’ll definitely combine both and turn them into a page that I can cross off and keep track of on the blog! But anyways, here’s…. Twenty-five things I want to do before I turn twenty-five Take a spontaneous solo trip, all by myself. (I have always wanted to do this!) Write the (e)book of short stories/essays that I’ve always wanted to write. (It’ll probably be a short one… but who knows!) Run a 5k. (So many people tell me I can’t… and …

The Power of Scrubs (FIGS Review)

Spider-Man has his spidey suit, Wonder Woman has her lasso… every superhero has their costume of choice. When they put on their super suit, they feel like they can take on the world. And that feeling is exactly what I feel when I put on a pair of scrubs. The first time I ever put on a pair of scrubs was when I was nine years old and tried on my mother’s scrubs, and as soon as I put them on I felt like I could do anything.  After hearing so many phenomenal things about FIGS, I knew that I wanted a pair for clinicals. I knew that I would be scurrying around the lab, running diagnoses and various tests, handling specimens and spending the days in motion. I wanted a pair of scrubs that I could trust to handle the rigorous schedule and demands of clinicals and whatever life threw at me. I also wanted scrubs that looked fashionable and chic. I’m not going to lie, saggy pants and baggy tops aren’t really my …

The Light In My Life

I’ve been told that I’m a pretty good storyteller and I think it’s been a while since I’ve told you all a story. It was 2015 and I was nineteen years old; I was in a long-term relationship with a boy who I was absolutely certain was a integral part of my future. I thought that we were going to spend the rest of our lives together (and I was so certain of it). It was mid-summer and I was working grueling, exhausting shifts as I had basically signed my summer away in exchange for free summer housing at my university. It didn’t help that the love of my life (or so I thought) was halfway across the continent in rural Mexico without any wifi or cellular signal, and it didn’t help that my roommate was problematic and my job was ridiculous. Oh, and I was taking a full summer courseload and trying to pay for it all on my own.  Bottom line, I really missed my boyfriend and things were stressful as hell. My friend …

Don’t Forget These Accomplishments

I was going to write a completely different blog post, but my parents just sent me pictures of my younger brother’s awards ceremony. He’s just finished the eighth grade and he received the President’s Award for Outstanding Academic Achievement. I stopped writing mid-post to write a Facebook status and afterward, I sat there and thought about things for a moment. We often talk about our accomplishments and our journey. We talk about what we are planning to do and where we are going to go. But how often do we stop and marvel at the amazing things that others have accomplished? I always think of this Mindy Kaling quote whenever I’m faced with negativity or people who are so rude regarding success. It honestly happens a lot. Previous classmates, old friends, people I knew from undergrad… the list goes on. There have been many occasions, especially recently where people will be rude regarding my own accomplishments. They’ll diminish them or be petty about things. But instead of caring about irrelevant people or those who are …

Memorial Day Weekend (Food, Sass, Outfits!)

Since I feel like I’ve been slacking on the “life” part of lifestyle, I decided to try a new kind of post where I share what I’ve been wearing, eating and up to! What better weekend to recap than Memorial Day Weekend? So, let get started! Thursday: I know that Thursday doesn’t really count as the weekend but I told you all last week that I was going to share my outfit details from the event I had last week! My cousin William (who is in my snaps!) was officially “pinned” to be treasurer of his high school’s Key Club and we all headed to Town Hall for the ceremony! I wore an olive green shirt dress with my favorite nude t-strap pumps. I paired it with my usual Kate Spade bag for a fun pop of color and wore my makeup and hair like I usually do! My lipstick is Revlon Colorstay Overtime in Infinite Raspberry. Overall, I think that it’s a chic but lowkey refined look. I’ve been loving shirtdresses recently and this …
