I hope everyone enjoyed their July 4th weekend! If you follow me on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook (which you should be hehe), then you’ve already gotten a glimpse of the good news I’m about to share with you!

A couple of months ago, Seventeen Magazine asked me to participate in their August “Beauty Blogger Special”. It’s been the hardest thing to keep to myself, but of course I said, heck yes!

I’ve always enjoyed reading Seventeen since my teenage years. This was such an amazing opportunity to be contacted by them to be apart of their blogger special (all because an amazing gal on their staff reads my blog!). These accomplishments along with the inspiration I’m able to share with my readers is what keeps this blog going and makes everything worth it!

And guess what? … the issue is finally on stands and online!

There are two cover images for the print issue, with Selena Gomez on one and Ariana Grande on the other.


Open up to page #62 for my tips on how to rock the “Edgy Hipster” makeup style, inspired by my fav style icon, Rihanna!



Part two takes places online, titled, “A Month Of Back To School Beauty/30 Days of Beauty Blogger Tips and Tricks”.

Sharing the spotlight with seasoned beauty bloggers such as Polly Blitzer of Beauty Blitz, Sarah Howard of Beauty Banter, Lara Ramos of The Glossarie, and Emily Weiss of Into The Gloss was such an honor!

For my Monday through Friday tips on skincare, go-to makeup essentials, nail tricks, and tips for bad hair days, check out the online feature HERE.

Thank you times a million to Seventeen Magazine for selecting me to be apart of your August issue. I bought six copies and one of these bad boys is going in a frame!

Thank you to everyone who’s congratulated me and shared kind words and encouragement on Twitter, Instagram, through email, and text messages. Nothing goes unnoticed even if I’m not able to respond to each person individually.

I love and appreciate my readers so much…as long as I have you to write for and inspire, then my mission is complete 🙂
