    Fast Fashion: One Blogger’s Thoughts

    Today, we’re going there. Fast fashion. Probably one of the most, if not the most controversial topic in fashion. Love it or hate it, fast fashion is everywhere, and has been for the last twenty years. Zara, H&M, Forever 21, Asos, Primark, Topshop…the list goes on, and is added to all the time. I shop at these retailers, you probably shop at them-you can’t walk through a mall or shopping district without spotting an H&M or Zara bag dangling on the arm of the fashion conscious. Advantages And let’s not kid ourselves, there’s big time appeal with fast fashion. For starters, you can’t beat the price. Under $20 for a…

    Spring 2019 Fashion Trends

    Its spring fashion time again! Time to look forward to all the spring fashions we will be seeing and, perhaps, wearing in the coming months. I enjoy looking at all the trend reports and new collections this time of year and planning what trends I’ll partake in, what new pieces to add to my wardrobe, and what pieces/trends that will NOT make it into my wardrobe. This spring is a bit of a mixed-bag when it comes to an overall feel or vibe.

Most of the youtubers I watch and blogs I read have done their “What I Got For Christmas” posts already. But better late than never! Right?!?! My family spoiled me this year.

So you better believe my annual Christmas lists includes books! I’ve already read the middle book (very Edgar Allen Poe inspired), and can’t wait to read the other two!

    Algenist: My First VoxBox

    About a month ago, I got a wonderful email. An email from Influenster telling me I had been selected for the Algenist Genius Sleeping Collegan Cream campaign! I was so excited. I had filled out the survey influenster sends users when a new campaign is set, but wasn’t getting my hopes up. A few weeks before I had filled out a hair related survey before and not been selected. So when I got the “You’re In” email I started stalking my front porch hardcore. In about a week, my VoxBox arrived. For this particular campaign, the VoxBox included the collegan serum which I had used before and enjoyed. This serum…
