Spotlight On: HeFlawless

So you guys may know @HeFlawless as a Youtuber with crazy story times and unique tutorials but I know him as Kenneth my roommate and friend who I've already shared tons of experiences and memories with. Although we spend a lot of time together there were a couple of things I didn't know and thought I would find out with you guys in this interview! 

A Reflection of 2016

 I was going to save this post for New Year's Eve but was too inspired to write today!(I will have another post planned for New Year's Eve!) Now that 2016 is coming to a close, I wanted to reflect on what was the biggest year of my life thus far. I completely threw all my worries through the window and decided this year that I was going to chase after my dream... and I did. 

How To Start (And Keep) A Blog

So now that we are quickly approaching the new year you have probably begun thinking of a couple of new year's resolutions that you are determined to get accomplished in 2017. I proved to myself this year that resolutions are actually possible to fulfill (with the exception of getting a driver's license, I never bothered to even take classes but that is a whole separate post). I constantly get asked how I started my blog and what resources did I use in order to keep it going and thought what better time to share all of these tips and tricks then right before a fresh new year. Before we get started, I want to point out that building and running a blog is not easy! It requires a lot of hard work, so make sure that this is something you absolutely want to do. Most importantly, have fun and be excited.

What I'm Thankful For...

So I haven't updated my "Life" blog in a while and figured what better day to reflect and talk to you guys on a more personal level than on Thanksgiving. People seem to forget the essence of Thanksgiving, given to the continual corporatization of holidays in the modern world. What used to be a holiday meant to give thanks, spend time with your family, and thank nature for the abundant harvest has turned into a day of parades, preparing for sales, and expensive flights that your airline refuses to give any points for. (But that's a whole other post..) I figured I'd get into the true spirit of Thanksgiving and talk to you, one on one. 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Halloween Party & Meeting Anastasia Soare For The First Time!

I cannot believe that I was actually at the Anastasia Beverly Hills Halloween party. (I'm literally still pinching myself, I cried like a baby the morning after but you knew that if you saw my Instagram story LOL.) I know, I've totally disappeared off of the face of the Earth but I'm back and more inspired than ever after this amazing weekend I spent in LA. For as long as my journey has been as a beauty blogger, a dream of mine was to attend the ABH Halloween party, and I really wish I could take you all with me but since that wasn't possible I figured I would share the experience here! 

How To Deal With A Breakup

Ah, it's like one day everything is great and then it crashes down and the relationship ends. Every human being experiences a breakup, whether it be with a partner or just a friend and it can be an extremely difficult time where you question your part in it and what you could have done differently. Let me just start with this, EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON. I have learned that in life, there's a blessing in disguise no matter how horrific the situation may seem. There is light at the end of the tunnel! 

What I Learned About Myself This Summer

So it's been two weeks since I've uploaded a post and I know you guys are probably like "Oh lord, here we go again", but I promise it temporary! These past two weeks I've taken advantage of every moment to reflect and acknowledge the tremendous growth I have experienced in the past three months. Summer 2016 was a summer full of love, wonderful memories and revelations that will continue to inspire a desire to explore my curiosity of the world. This is what I learned about myself. 

Advice By Vic!

On the first Advice by Vic... "I'm trying to get into makeup but I'm super scared of what reaction I'l get from people especially my parents. My dad is super homophobic, any advice on how you started and the reaction you got from your parents?" 

Fashionable Friday: @MichaelMorgon

Hey guys, so I was super excited to catch up with the ever so fashionable, Michael Morgon. He is a rising fashion influencer who is working closely with luxury retailer, Neiman Marcus in expanding their social media influence and showcasing the latest designer trends beyond the walls of their physical locations. We talk style, social media and goals!  

NY vs. LA

The East Coast and West Coast have been in constant friendly competition since the dawn of time. By east coast, west coast what everyone really means is New York and Los Angeles. New York and LA are the first and second biggest cities in the US so it is easy to see why people would compare the two even though they're essentially polar opposites in almost every aspect. With all of these differences, who really takes the crown for the better city? 

Beefs, How To Avoid Them/Mend Them + Kat Von D vs. Jeffree Star

I'm almost positive that everyone whom reads this post has that one person who they don't mesh with. I'm a big believer in vibes and also believe that not everyones vibe matches with every single person BUT that doesn't validate the need for a beef. When I was younger I didn't understand that and would constantly beef with others but this year especially I've realized the meaning of forgiveness, maturity and compassion. But how exactly do we avoid beefs? 

This Video Truly Changed The Way I Think About Life

but she reminded me to click the link and so I did... 

It was the best thing I could have done. This video will forever change the way I think and how I go about things. 

There is a reason why Oprah Winfrey is a billionaire who is grounded regardless of what her bank account looks like. True inspiration. 

The Struggle of Being Young, Ambitious and Lazy..

"Your early 20s seem to be the most exciting and scary time of your life. It is the first time that you start to feel the true weight of being an adult. Yeah, you're still young and can get away with a lot but it isn't the same "getting away" that it used to be. Consequences seem to be a lot harsher and dramatic and it definitely has you walking on egg shells more than any other time in your life."
