Who Do You Want to Be?

Reflection: a thought occurring in consideration or meditation. 

Something so easily understood via definition, yet so complex when we actually sit down to meditate on our lives. 

Where are you going in life? 

What steps are you taking to achieve your goals? 

Are you allowing yourself time to slow down and think? 

Inspiration can reveal itself to you at any timeIf you create an atmosphere that invites creativity and inspiration in, you'd be amazed at what ideas will come pouring out to you. I believe that the individuals who allow this atmosphere for themselves are some of the most beautiful people because their aura is infectious

Today, I want to talk about some reflection I've been doing in preparation for going away to college in a week. Hopefully this will inspire you to do some reflection of your own!

One Dress, Two Ways!

Hello lovelies!

So, last Saturday I purchased a couple of things from work (I currently work as a Stylist at my local American Eagle) and this dress was one of those items! 

I immediately thought of two different ways to style it, and I couldn't choose which one I wanted to show on the blog so I said to myself, "Why not just do both?" and here we are.

#MusicMondays: Three Songs I've Been Listening to Nonstop

Hello everyone! 
Okay, so I know for a fact all of you have a couple of favorite songs that you just have to put on repeat. I get it, sometimes they more than two plays (or three...or four...) so I figured I'd share my three most recent nonstop jams!

Confidence vs. Arrogance (And How to Deal With the Haters)

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face..."
-Eleanor Roosevelt
What do you think the difference is between Confidence and Arrogance?
Sometimes, people feel insecure about not being apologetic for their talents, passions, and having high a self esteem. They feel as if they must lower themselves for the sake of insecure people, and therefore lose the spark of confidence they once had.

Today, let's discover the difference between confidence and arrogance and how to deal with haters/insecure people!

ShopMissA Haul!

Don't you hate it when you're shopping online and everything is so expensive? "Sometimes," you may say to yourself, "I wish this all could be $1."

Well, what if I told you there was a website that did sell all of their products for $1?

ShopMissA is a company that legitimately sells everything for a dollar! My sister showed me their website a while ago, so I ordered some products and was very pleased with not only the quality of the products, but the customer service as well!

Music Mondays: Five of my Favorite Movie Scores

"Everything I learned, I learned from the movies." -Audrey Hepburn 

Watching movies is one of my favorite past times―I would even be so bold as to call it a hobby. We all have our favorite movies, and as Audrey so eloquently put, we learn from them.  

One component of movies that I believe is immensely important to our learning experience is the orchestral score. To me, it's almost like a hidden gem tucked away in the film that most movie watchers take for granted. Without it, the movie would be lifeless. There are some scores that are so inspiring and unforgettable that they stay with you even after you leave the theater. 

Today, I'm going to share with you a selection of my favorite film scores.

Let's get into it, shall we?
