Items I Always Purchase (Without Regrets)

While I’ve been trying to spend less money in the past year and hopefully slowly save up (I haven’t exactly had a large income in the last almost-year), that hasn’t kept me from spending money on items and events that I genuinely enjoy.

How to Keep in Touch with Friends

There are many times in life when we get split up from friends. And I don’t mean that we fight and stop talking for a while.

What I’ve Been Wearing: Spring 2017
