I am 20. 2-0. I decided that on my 20th birthday, in the theme of other major milestones in my life, most recently high school graduation, I would write letters to a few of the important people in my life. I had finished writing my letters when I realized I'd left someone pretty important off the list: me. So here is my (rather belated) letter to myself at 20.

Facing Your Fashion Fears

As an industry, fashion has always been about pushing boundaries but too many people assume that the risk-taking attitude belongs only to runway shows and designer labels. Myself included! I've spent far too many days uncomfortable in my fashion choices for a myriad of reasons -- no more! Dia & Co, the wonderful plus-sized fashion empire, have started their Try-Day Friday campaign to encourage everyone to feel free to wear exactly what they want.

Rewind: 2017

Another year has come and gone and with it a whole year of experiences, travel, and recipes! Here is my Rewind: 2017. (Check out 2015 and 2016's rewinds too)

A Coachella-Inspired Photoshoot
Photoshoots with Myriam are anything but boring and I can't get enough of her music festival-inspired look here! (Psst check out my photography page)

A Fun Beach Day
Working two jobs last summer made days off a little hard to come by, but having great friends made those days even better.

A Hard Goodbye
Losing a close family member brought me to a new understanding of my own emotion and how I relate to those around me, and to a new appreciation of love.

A Long Summer
Two jobs and heartbreak don't really mesh well but I learned a lot about myself last summer.

A Pumpkin Patch
Fall was cool relief and a pumpkin heaven! My roommie and I explored our local pumpkin patch.

A Solo Concert
I went to a concert alone and now I think everyone should try it at least once -- it's so worth it!

ah it's that time again. as 2017 winds down and we look forward to 2018, it's a period of renewal. a rebirth. think about it....the entire world comes together on this one night and desperately hopes for the next year to bring only positive things. that's pretty damn magical.

as much of a (much-needed) rebirth this new year will be for the world, it is the perfect time to recommit yourself to what is most positive for you. that's why new years resolutions are so popular. unfortunately, too many are abandoned by the wayside in the middle of January when real life gets in the way of those champagne-tinted promises we make to ourselves every December 31st. that's why we're going to figure out how to make 2018 the best year ever, with this list of tips on How to Make New Years Resolutions That Actually Stick.
