When You Can’t See Yourself With Anyone Else

It didn’t work out, but you can’t see yourself with anyone else. You don’t want any one else. You only think of his face, his smile, his eyes. No one else is as good as him. You only want him.

But he is not an option. What if you’re single forever, because you don’t want anyone but him. No one else is quite like him.

So take some time. Take some space. Focus on yourself. I know you think you will never get over him, but you will. You may never forget him, but one day you’ll find that he no longer consumes you. And you’ll let him go.

And when the time is right, you’ll find someone else. And this person will be right for you, like the other person wasn’t. And you’ll fall in love with HIS face, his smile, his eyes. You’ll love him in ways that you never loved the other person, and this time, he will love you back. You will both love each other more than either of you thought you could love another person. You will have a chemistry and connection far greater than what you had with your past almost-lover, and you’ll see why it never worked out with him.

Be patient. Your time will come. Don’t lose hope, for true love awaits you. You will find it some day, and you will no longer care that your almost-lover never loved you back. Because you have found your true soulmate. You’ve found who you truly belong with. You will find that person. You will get over him. I promise.



Wearing a Lilly Pulitzer dress  (which you can now get on sale for 30% off!) in Boca Raton, Florida

By the way, this article was written a few months ago based on my own experience with unrequited love.


The Quarantine Is Your Time to Focus on YOU

I don’t know about you guys, but I would rather be stuck in quarantine than in World War III! But still, having to stay at home all the time can be difficult and at times very lonely and boring. But on the bright side, social distancing can give you more time to focus on YOU— your health, your goals, your passions. This is the time to take care of you. During the quarantine, focus is yourself and being an even better you.


This may be obvious, but the quarantine is of course the perfect time to spend extra time on practicing self-care. It’s the best time to take a nice, hot bubble bath using that Lush bath bomb you’ve been meaning to use but haven’t yet. I just purchased the Deep Sleep Lush bath bomb which smells like lavender, as well as the Lucky Cat bath bomb   Lush Lucky Cat bath bomb which is pink and sparkly and has a lovely jasmine, floral scent. I can’t wait to use both of these! Practicing yoga by using yoga videos on Youtube or another platform is another great way to de-stress as well as is exercising and working out. My dad loves yoga so I’ll have to have him help me with my poses! I have also been enjoying still getting some time outside in the front and back yard of my parents’ house where I am currently staying instead of my apartment in Florida, which is very relaxing especially when the weather is nice! Mental health is an extremely important part of self-care, so the quarantine is a great time to take extra steps to improving your mental health and well-being. Spend more time focusing on getting past anything that has been hurting you inside, because there is nothing more important in life than your inner peace. Talk therapy as well as journaling, meditation, hypnotism, and art therapy can be tremendously helpful when getting through something difficult or even traumatic. Also, having more time to relax is beneficial for anyone who is going through any kind of internal struggle, as long as you are not spending too much time thinking and doing nothing.


However, while it is nice that we may have more time to relax, it is a mistake for college students like myself to view this quarantine as a vacation. For me, I still have online classes, homework, summer internship applications, blog posts, and HerCampus articles that I still have to work on. So while it may be tempting and easy to be lazy and slack off during the quarantine, I would advice against doing too much of that. I would even say that it’s a good idea to work harder during the quarantine since we don’t have social plans or events to attend anymore, although they may be hard for some of us to do who are struggling with anxiety about the pandemic. And while not being able to participate in social activities is unfortunate and sad, it does give us more time to do the things we need to do or want to do for ourselves. And we can still have fun social-distancing too, with our quarantine buddies, with our friends and family over FaceTime, and just by ourselves. We can do activities a lone that we haven’t gotten around to doing and focus more on our own hobbies and passions. For instance, if you’re a writer or blogger, there is no better time than the quarantine to write!


And while I’m sure many of us are spending most of our days at home in t-shirts and comfy leggings or sweat-pants, maybe pick a day or two a week to dress up and look gorgeous and fancy. Even if you are all dressed up with no where to go, do it just to feel beautiful and have fun! In these pictures, I am wearing a dress from one of my all-time favorite brands, Gal Meets Glam, which I recently purchased on Poshmark  for a much less expensive price, and I’m wearing it with my classic pearls (duh) and my newest tan and gold Jack Roger sandals (currently 25% off!). I encourage you all to find a day or time to dress up, do your hair and makeup (although I honestly have yet to do my makeup while staying at home….), go outside just to your front and back yard, take in the fresh air, and feel magnificent! Just because we’re all in quarantine, doesn’t mean we can’t still look fabulous!


Since the most important person in your life is you, take this time away from the outside world to focus even more on loving you. Put YOU first.



How to Keep Your Color-Treated Hair Looking Healthy and Luscious

Before                                                   After


A lot of us women like to get our hair dyed or highlighted frequently, because we want to have that beautiful platinum blonde or dark auburn hair color that we love but were not naturally born with. Coloring your hair can give you a life-changing boost of confidence, because your hair is the color you want it to be, and no one has to know that is actually artificial! However, one of the only downsides to coloring your hair is that the bleach used to strip your hair of its natural color also strips your hair of its natural oils especially when used on your hair very often. As a result, coloring your hair frequently can cause serious damage to your hair and can make your hair look dry and fried which is not the most attractive look. My hair in the past has looked very dry, frizzy, and damaged from the usual full head of highlights I get done typically every few months. But now I have started doing things to my hair to better take care of it and make it look and feel more healthy, and I’ve got to tell you it has made a huge difference! My tomboy sister who doesn’t often notice small details of someone’s appearance has even told me that it looks ten times better than it did a few months ago! So without further ado, here is how I changed my hair from looking like a fried frizzy mess to looking beautiful, silky, and smooth in just a short period of time!


Use a hot oil treatment.

Hot oil treatments will literally change your life. Using a hot oil treatment makes a dramatic difference in the way your hair looks and feels. Your hair will feel so much softer and look so much more shiny and smooth. You can buy one over the counter for a cheap price at somewhere like Sally Beauty, however it is better to just use virgin olive oil since it will not contain any kind of chemicals like most over-the-counter hair products do. The best way to use a hot oil treatment is to use about 1/3 cup of olive oil and put it in the microwave for ten seconds to heat it up. Then, drench it all throughout your hair and massage it on your scalp as well. Leave it in your hair overnight and wash it out in the morning. You should shampoo your hair two times. When your hair dries, you will be amazed with the results; my hair looked extraordinary more healthy! It is recommended to use a hot oil treatment about once a week or perhaps twice if your hair is severely damaged.


Use keratin-infused shampoo and conditioner, a sulfate-free shampoo is also a must!

Keratin protein is great for your hair, therefore using a shampoo and conditioner that contains protein will work wonders on your hair and make it look much healthier. The shampoo and conditioner that you use can make a tremendous difference, and if you color your hair often it is especially important to use shampoo and conditioner that it is also extra moisturizing. I personally love using the Chi Keratin Reconstructing Conditioner which contains jojoba and argon oils as well as hydrolyzed silk, ingredients that are proven to give your hair extra moisture and shine. You can buy Ulta for $17.50, but I found it at Marshalls recently for half the price! When you color your hair, it is imperative to wash your hair with shampoo that does not contain sulfates since they can strip your hair of the hair dye over time. I use a sulfate-free Keratin Shampoo from the salon I get my hair done at, but the Fekkai Technician Color Shampoo  is a very affordable (only $5!!!) and highly-rated product that is specifically made for color-treated hair and has keratin in it and most importantly does not contain sulfates. It is also vegan and free of other unhealthy but frequently used hair product ingredients such as parabens, which have been proven to be harmful on your scalp, and silicones, which instantly make your hair look more shiny but actually damages it in the long run. It’s so important especially with over-processed hair to pay attention to the ingredients that are in your shampoo and conditioner. It is also best in general but especially for color-treated hair to only wash your hair about three or four times a week, because washing it everyday will strip your hair of its natural oils making in dryer.


Use a leave-conditioner

Using a leave-in conditioner after washing your hair and using a regular conditioner really helps your hair remain in healthy condition. You can see instant results in your hair after using a good quality leave-in conditioner, but it will especially make a big difference after you have been using it consistently over a long period of time. I am absolutely in love with my Kendra Blow-dry Spray . It smells amazing, like candy, which is why they call it the “Yummy” Spray at the salon I go to! However, it is $35, which may be a bit of a splurge for those of us on a tighter budget. While it is a good investment, spending that much money on a leave-in conditioner is not completely necessary. The Chi Keratin Reconstructing leave-in conditioner Chi Keratin Reconstructing leave-in conditioner is another product I love that is much more affordable especially if you buy it at Marshalls (they sell it there for only about $8 which is quite a steal!).


Limit heat styling

This one’s kind of a no-brainer. I’m pretty sure most of us know that heat is damaging to your hair meaning that frequently styling your hair using blow-dryers, flat irons, curling irons, etc. severely damages your hair over time especially if you already color-treat it. So especially if you color your hair, it is best to limit using these tools as much as you can. They may make your hair look absolutely stunning for short while, but in the long run the heat dries out your hair making it look less luscious and naturally beautiful. So try to keep heat styling your hair to a minimum, maybe just occasionally when you’re going out or only on special occasions.


Only if it’s a hair emergency, use Damage Defy!

If your hair is showing so much visible damage that you feel you need a serious hair intervention, an intense hair treatment called Damage Defy is very effective to use as a last resort or if your hair needs a little something extra to look and feel healthy again. When my hair really looked like it needed special help, I went to the local salon I always go to, and they gave me a Damage Defy treatment to repair my fried and damaged hair. Sometimes if they are the stylists that do your hair and your hair is looking seriously damaged, they will give you a Damage Defy treatment for free, especially if you’re a loyal client, which is what my hair dressers did for me (thanks Lacey and Clarisse!). If not, you can always pay for a hairdresser to do it for you which may cost around $20 depending on what salon you go to. Or you can buy the Joico Damage Defy kit for yourself at a place like Ulta or Amazon, and then you’ll be able to use the treatment frequently on your hair which will truly transform the health and appearance of your hair. This kit usually costs about $74.97 which is quite pricey, but it comes with full bottles of the Damage Defy shampoo, conditioner, hair mask, and hair serum so it is actually a great value and most importantly, using the products consistently makes a huge difference. However, you can also buy a kit of smaller-sized bottles of the products at Ulta for only $17.99 Ulta for only $17.99. When I got my Damage Defy treatment done I noticed immediate dramatic results. My hair stylists gave me a couple free samples of the treatment and using them improved the health of my hair even more. I may sound like I’m trying to sell this treatment but I promise no one is sponsoring me; this treatment really works miracles!


It is so important to take proper care of your hair when you color-treat is so that is remains in healthy condition and does not look fried and lose its luster. While coloring your hair does require extra maintenance in order to keep your hair healthy, to me it is worth it because your hair looks exactly the way you want it to and you feel like you are ready to take on the world!


A New Mindset

This year, 2020, I’m starting anew. After the tumultuous and emotionally taxing relationships I endured last year, this year, I am focusing on me. I am focusing on finding myself again and loving myself again. I am focusing on my own journey and finding my place in the world before finding romantic love.


I am working hard in school to pull my GPA back up and turn in work that I am proud of while earning grades I am proud of as well. I am also beginning to look for work to do this summer to hopefully jumpstart my career somewhere in the Communications field or the fashion industry in Southern Florida. I’m also trying to get more involved at school by joining the Fashion and Retail Association and hopefully also working for the school magazine. Maybe I’ll try to work a paid job a bit in the summer as well to earn some extra cash, make some of my own money. I can’t wait to make some of my own money again.


I learned so much last year, and one of the most important lessons I learned is the importance of advocated for yourself. In my opinion, you won’t get very far in life if you can’t or won’t advocate for yourself; you will not get where you want to be. You will not get your needs met either. And going through life without speaking up is no way to live. Advocating for yourself and being assertive is an essential skill to living the life you want and making your dreams come true. So this year I will advocate for myself; I will not hold back anymore.


I am still trying to find my place in this world. I don’t really know who I am or what I’m meant to do. I know some of the things that I want in life but not everything. And sometimes you end up somewhere that is different than what you had dreamed of but you are still happy with where you are, and maybe even happy that you ended up there instead of where you had pictured yourself to be. Not all those who are wandering are lost. I do not think I am lost. But I do want to get closer to finding me, and creating “me”, and that is something I hope to accomplish this year. I am looking forward to working hard and experiencing new things in 2020 that may help me get there, wherever “there” may be.


2020 is my year to work on myself, my life, my dreams, and to work on what I can improve on. I want to improve my work ethic, for one thing. I want to build up my self esteem and lift myself higher. I am not just a pretty princess; I am strong and capable, and I will say it until I believe it. This year I will be taking my power back. Watch out 2020, here I come.

To the Boy Who Deceived Me

I look at the guy I once loved
And I wonder, how could you be such a monster?
A monster disguised with a beautiful face
A sweet smile
Eyes that looked deep into your soul
As if they cared
But it seems they never did
How could someone like you be capable of such horrible things?
How could someone like me be swept away by someone like you?
You were cruel but you were sneaky.
They tried to tell me,
But I wouldn’t listen.
I was blind.
And so were you by your overconfidence.
No one is worthy of you, right?
You made me feel like I wasn’t.
And you knew how I felt.
I think you tried to care,
But you didn’t.
Maybe making me feel that way,
Deep down,
Made you feel better about yourself.
Maybe if I try to be like you,
If I stop trusting others,
If I push people away,
If I control others with threats, harsh words, manipulation
If I suppress my true feelings
Maybe people like you won’t be able to hurt me anymore.
But if I became you, I would end up hating myself.
I’d be just as unhappy as you.
You broke a part of me,
But I must rebuild myself,
Without becoming you.
I’ll never understand why you did so many things to hurt me.
Why you mistreated our friends whom you also claimed to care for.
Maybe you’ll see this one day and you’ll feel the pain I feel as I write this.
But if you did read this,
I know you’ll probably just laugh at my misery.
The same way you did before.
I guess that’s just what people like you do.
And you’ll get defensive
Because I blamed you.
You once said to me
“You’ll never meet a guy like me”
Now I hope I never do.



I’m the Girl Who Falls In Love Too Fast



I’m the girl who falls in love to fast. I fall to hard, too deep, and too quick. When I like someone I see them in my own eyes with rose-colored glasses, and I cannot help but become swept away. I cannot help my feelings as they grow too strong, too fast.

When I like someone I can’t help but think “Maybe he’s the one”. Maybe he’s my soulmate, the one I’ll get married to and spend the rest of my life with. My knight in shining armor. Prince Charming. I fantasize and get my hopes up.



I had an experience where a boy masqueraded himself as Prince Charming but turned out to be everything he promised me he wasn’t. I had fallen for him in a month, but in only a month, how was I supposed to know that when I fell, he wouldn’t be there to catch me? The next man, a dear friend, was handsome and dreamy, smart, tough, and told me he liked me. He had helped me through my breakup with fake Prince Charming, and I knew every time I looked into his eyes how much I liked him. But again, I fell for him in a month, just like I told my friends I wouldn’t, and  then he lost his interest in me. And now I’m left a lone with my unrequited feelings.

I am a hopeless romantic and a dreamer, but I must learn to pay attention to reality. See things objectively, for what they really are. Maybe then I won’t fall so fast. I need to take things slow to prevent getting attached so quickly and get to a place where I can’t see myself without them. I also need to realize my self worth and not settle for anything less than I deserve.

Don’t fall in love too fast, because true love takes time. True loves means loving every part of a person, which you don’t get to see in just a month.






White dress from ROMWE, necklace from Lilly Pulitzer


There’s Something About Seersucker

You can never go wrong with seersucker, or pink! I once posted about my favorite seersucker dress; here is my favorite seersucker skirt! I found this skirt a couple years ago at Vineyard Vines and decided I had to have it but ended up returning it for a dress since I felt a dress was more worth the price. Now, years later, I found this skirt on Poshmark and decided it was worth purchasing on a much better deal! The skirt is perfectly twirlable and looks adorable paired with white. While it’s more of a daytime skirt, I, a fashion rule breaker, wore it out to dinner at my favorite hibachi restaurant, Saitos. This skirt is the perfect combination of both preppy and barbie, and the floral design on the bottom is simply stunning! White Jack Rogers are the best shoes for this outfit. I look ready for Spring!






My Favorite Places to Go in Mizner Park, Boca Raton

One of the prettiest and most upscale areas to go in Boca Raton, Florida is Mizner Park. I’ve been there several times recently including every day this past weekend, and each day I have had a tremendous time there enjoying the beauty of the area, shopping at the many different stores there, dining at their restaurants, catching movie at IPIC, and hanging out at in the gazebo.



64AC7536-0C80-4929-9A3E-7A9B64F0E405Mizner Park has a great variety of stores to shop at. My favorites include Franchesa’s, Kendra Scott, Lord and Taylor, Van Cleef and Arpels, Tommy Bahama, J. McLaughlin, and It’s Sugar. Franchesca’s is a trendy store with the cutest clothing, accessories, and trinkets. I love to buy clothes there. The gorgeous maxi I am wearing in these photos is from Franchesca’s! Lately I have been getting into maxis and trying to get into other styles I don’t wear as often. This maxi is very fun and springy. Lord and Taylor is such an amazing department more. They have a large variety of designer handbags on discounts, including Louis Vuitton! They have so many brands of clothing, shoes, accessories, and cosmetics. On Saturday, I went in the Van Cleef and Arpels store for the first time and was in awe of all the beautiful jewelry they had. Getting a piece of jewelry from Van Cleef and Arpels is definitely something I want to do one day. I especially love the diamond butterfly necklaces and the jewelry with the signature Van Cleef and Arpels flower emblems. The jewelry stores next door also had beautiful extravagant jewelry, including diamond pieces and watches from Harry Winston.




I love the preppy style of clothing at Tommy Bahama and J. McLaughlin, although weirdly I don’t actually own anything from J.McLaughlin yet since when I have that kind of money to spend on clothes, it’s typically spent at Lilly Pulitzer. However, I do plan on getting a dress or skirt there at some point! I have a couple costume pieces of jewelry from Kendra Scott. I love their jewelry; it pairs so well with all my Lilly Pulitzer clothing. It’s Sugar is the best candy store ever; I especially love their strawberry-Daquari flavored gummy bears. They have the best candy and soda, when I go in their I usually spend over $10 on sweets! It’s definitely a dangerous place to go if you have a sweet tooth!



Mizner Park has many outstanding restaurants with delicious food. My favorite restaurant there is Ruth Chris’s Steak House, where Scott took me on our first date. While it’s not exactly cheap, their steak is some of the best steak I have ever had; it is amazing. Their Ribeye steak, which I usually get, is superb. The way they cook the steak is perfection. A few other restaurants I enjoy are Yard House, which has good American food and seafood, Max’s Grille, and Villagio, which has delicious Italian food. I also got to try Vietnamese food for the first time at Basilic Vietnamese, which is right in the area. They are many other fantastic restaurants at Mizner Park, but these are the first that come to mind. Mizner Park also has many fun bars that I love to hit up with friends, like O’brian’s, which is a college bar for the most part, and the Dublinar, where they have live music on the weekends.



On Sunday, I saw Dumbo with Scott at IPIC. This was my first time ever going to the luxurious movie theatre. At this theatre, they have reeling chairs, blankets and pillow, and a button on the table you can press if you want a server to come and serve you food. While this theatre is expensive, it’s definitely a theatre that everyone must go to at some point, and the inside of the theatre is so beautiful and fancy with a bar and plenty of lounging space!


Mizner Park is easily one of my favorite areas in Boca Raton, Florida and a splendid place to spend the weekend. When visiting Boca Raton, I highly recommend checking out Mizner Park! It’s one of the funnest and most beautiful places to visit in the Boca area.

Couple’s Trip To Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park (What I Wore)

Lately I have been so so happy, and I have to credit a good amount of my joy to the fact that I now have a boyfriend named Scott, who is sweet, caring, hilarious, smart, and fun. I love every minute that I spend with him. He’s handsome, has a heart of gold, and treats me the way I’ve always wanted to be treated. We had so much fun together when we spent the day at Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park, where there were so many awesome water slides.

Going to the water park, I turned part of a Lilly Pulitzer dress into a cover-up to wear over my colorful striped swim suit I got a Macy’s. I got this purple-pink dress on sale, and I am wearing it with my white Tory Burch sandals I got at the outlet store and my favorite Lilly Pulitzer beach bag that has my monogram on it.





Scott and I had so much fun at the water park, riding every water slide there, well except for the one that went straight down-it was such a huge drop! I loved all of the slides; each and every one was worth riding in my opinion. While some were better than others, I can’t pick a favorite! We raced each other on slides several times, and I hate to say but he beat me every time and enjoyed gloating about it. Well, I do think I beat him once. He seems to not think so, but he told me he would give that one to me. We also spent time together in the wave pool and the lazy river. We had such a great time that soon we plan on going to the Water Rapids Water Park that is closer to us in West Palm Beach. I have always loved water slides since I was little. One of my favorite things to do is ride water slides! I highly recommend checking out Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park; it’s a blast!
