It’s that time of the year again. The “Hallmark holiday,” Singles Awareness Day, Galentine’s Day, the day of love… Valentine’s Day. Whichever way you view February 14, it’s coming and I have an easy makeup look that suits the day perfectly! (more…)
Good afternoon readers!
Today is a beautiful day that needs to be enjoyed outside. But first, let me give you a quick Valentine’s Day DIY since that special day is coming up right around the corner.

You’ll either stomp on it, cut it out, or have the same mentality as I do about them. That dandelion means something to someone like me. When I was younger I was told that they make wishes come true.
