Revival: 2016

"Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man."

I hold so much hope for this new year.
This past year has been monumental, catastrophic, for me. A million wonderful things happened, but most or all of them sprung from great pain and suffering. I am a big believer of making your own destiny and changing your reality for the better, so when I experienced a life changing event early last year, I decided it was time to revive not only my life, but my soul as well. Consequently, I've never been happier, and I owe it all to my guiding lights. In 2015, my blog went professional, I opened an online store (100% for charity), have raised over $700 to help people in need, and created a whole new life for myself. I have so much to be grateful for, and I will, very soon, personally thank every single person who has influenced my journey. Starting with you, my faithful readers, whom I most dearly love.

On another note, I am having such a flashback moment seeing myself with long hair again! As many of you know, I bravely chopped all my hair off last year, and don't regret it at all, but do sometimes miss the elegant look of a long mane-- especially for photoshoots. I found the perfect solution with Irresistible Me Hair Extensions! These are seriously the best on the market, using 100% natural Remy hair in 11 different tones and colors, ranging from 14-24 inches in length. My extensions are the Medium Brown in 20 inch, which I think is a beautiful combination for my figure and style. I curled them a little with their 8 in 1 Sapphire Curling Iron which is an absolute dream and a must have for every beauty guru!

I wish all of you so much love and luck in this New Year!
May 2016 bring magic you never believed possible.
