This store called Old Navy

This store called Old Navy

I don’t want no Hollister or A&F or Uggs. If I were an entrepreneur I would put some money in getting Old Navy overseas. Man, I love their items! With these three things my fall wardrobe would be a little closer to the title of “complete”. Who am I kidding. A womans closet can never be considered complete. This whole summer I was saying how I actually didn’t like the color block trend that much. These capris are what …

Dahlia Craze

Dahlia Craze

One thing we love to do on vacation is taking long walks in local parks.

I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you all! PS: These photos were all taken by me and are watermarked.  You are allowed to use them with the watermark and/…

Today I’m pretty stressed out because tomorrow is the first day of my internship. I’ll be working at the Social Service in an elderly home for the next 9 weeks. I’m excited and scared at …
