20 Things I Learned Before Turning 20

Wow, I’ve been alive for TWO DECADES! That actually blows my mind. As one of my first entries after my posting hiatus, I decided to share some of the life lessons I’ve learned in the past year!  ONE // You are what you do. Not what you say you’ll do.  Do you want people to respect you? Put your all into one task at a time. Do the job, and do it well.

I recently picked up this gorgeous blush number to be my designated bag for summer. And why do I love it so much? I usually don’t reach for blush tones outside of spring, but I definitely believe that the color is the cherry on top of the bag. It’s a fun twist on your usual crossbody; it has a fun silhouette and is quite roomy.  Coach ID Badge… View Post
