Vulnerability

Raise your hand if you’ve ever heard the word vulnerability while watching an episode of the Bachelor or Bachelorette. (If you aren’t raising your hand, you’re lying). However, as funny as it is to make fun of the overuse of the word, it really got me to thinking tonight about what it really means to…

Goal Setting: February

Ah, the month of love (hah). Now that I’ve gotten back into the swing of things down in Madison, I think it’s safe to say that I underestimated just how much reading I have for my classes this semester that I just CAN’T KEEP UP. It’s like for every page I read, I get assigned…

Month Recap: January

Y’all, January was jam packed with so much that I don’t even know where to begin (LOL kidding). I spent most of my time at home over winter break (bored out of my mind) but, it was much needed after a semester full of hard work. I turned 20. Wait what. Yeah you read that…

With finals mid-December and having to study extremely hard into the early hours of the morning, I became exhausted, over-worked and under-rested. However, with the holiday season and spending time with my family as…

Life Update: MODA Launch Party

As many of you already know, this semester I was blessed with the opportunity to become a writer for a student-run fashion and lifestyle magazine on campus. Through this, I have written multiple articles with the topic decided upon by myself each time. This have given me the chance to use my creative ability to…

Braided Updo 2.0

Okay so almost exactly a year ago, I first debuted this hairstyle on this blog as I had recently discovered how to do a fast, quick yet stylish messy bun! I completed the hairstyle on my roommate at the time, Gretchen, and she totally rocked it. However, recently, when messing around with my hair (as…
