Bikinis in January… yes.


Don’t wait until hot weather rolls around, buy your spring break swimsuit wardrobe NOW! You’ll thank me later.

We ladies love to have a selection of swimsuits which is not cheap. Even buying a single high quality swimsuit can put a dent in your wallet. The best thing to do before spring break rolls around is to start buying them ASAP while swimsuits aren’t in season. You’ll find plenty of markdowns and sales that you won’t find ANYWHERE once March rolls around.

One of the best ways I hunt down the best swimsuit deals is finding where I can get them for free (lol, I’m on a college budget). Go on your Instagram explore page and look for models who post bikini pictures because often times, those social media influencers (like myself) have giveaways! If the price you have to pay for a chance to win a free swimsuit is to follow a swimsuit company, it’s well worth it.

If you don’t get lucky finding a giveaway, chances are you will find plenty of discount codes and swimsuit companies holding sales to get rid of any bikinis they have leftover from last season.

Don’t wait until Spring! You’ll end up paying far more than you want to. Check out some of my favorite swimsuits:

Liquid Lipstick LIFE HACK


One of the biggest trends in the makeup industry right now is liquid lipstick. The kind that comes in what looks like a lipgloss tube, goes on wet, and dries to a matte finish. This is the kind of makeup product that you really can’t find in a drug store. And we all know how expensive stores like Sephora can be.

I have been doing my research on liquid lipsticks because I really love them! They last all day or all night and look fantastic. Most of them cost from $20-30 and I just think it’s crazy to spend that much money on a tube of lipstick. BUT, I found a fantastic brand called Colourpop Cosmetics that sells lots and lots of shades of liquid lipsticks for such an affordable price! $6 to be exact. Yes, $6 for a single tube of liquid lipstick!

Check out some of my favorite shades:

This is Limbo by Colourpop Cosmetics. It is a beautiful shade of dark brown that has such a comfortable and light wear.

This is Beeper by Colourpop Cosmetics. Light enough to wear during the daytime for a more dramatic look and dark enough to look fierce during the night.

This is Rooch by Colourpop Cosmetics. If you’re like me and have always loved a classic dark, blood red lip, this is perfect for you!

I was thrilled to find a makeup brand that sells quality liquid lipsticks at an affordable price so I hope you are thrilled too! Be sure to check out their website here where you can find their other products like lipglosses, eyeshadow palettes, eyebrow pencils, and much more all at an affordable price.

Feeling Reckless?

Feeling Reckless?

I usually am and I love to flaunt it with my Y&R attire. These tees as soft and as cozy as they come and ironically still make you feel like a badass. I can’t think of many things better than that.

Check out their site here to get in on the Young & Reckless movement.
