How To Be Authentic Online Without Damaging Your Brand

Posting online has become a time-consuming process for me. First, I take the picture. (If I’m being honest, I take several pictures. Sometimes 20 or 30.) Then, I have to find one that works, edit it in Lightroom, run it through FaceTune to get rid of any stray hairs, come up with a caption, find relevant hashtags, share it on Instagram, share it on Facebook and monitor the posts for any comments to respond to. 

My Daily Makeup Routine (With Before & After Shots)

If you were obsessed with makeup as a child, I seriously envy you. I had the best upbringing, but my parents didn’t let me wear makeup pretty much at all. I finally decided to just start sneaking my own makeup once I had an allowance, but unfortunately, I had NO IDEA WHAT I WAS DOING, and it was obvious. I searched high and low for a picture of me wearing LIME GREEN eyeshadow as a teenager, but I must’ve deleted it from all social channels. Thankfully, I still have a reminder of how I used to wear my eyeshadow, which was from lid to brow. No blending needed (or so I told myself).

Our First Date Ended In A Fight, & Here’s What It Taught Me

I’ve always been a perfectionist to a ridiculous extent. Think of the kid who gets the highest grade in the class or is friends with literally everyone — that’s me. I’m constantly being humbled and reminded of my imperfections, especially within my relationship with Vagner. Our first date started off on a sweet note, but it ended in disaster! We’re able to laugh about it today, but we actually learned a lot from that hot mess of a date. 

My Super Extra Plan To Fix My Chronic Lateness

Everyone has character flaws, although I like to think of my flaws as lovable quirks. But 2018 is my year of no more excuses and trying my best, so I’m going to try my best to fix my one of the most annoying things about me: my chronic lateness. I even wrote a story for Bustle about what to do when you’re always late and stressed out. It’s bad, fam. Thankfully, the team at JORD Watches sent me a gorgeous wooden watch, and it’s convincing me to actually put my somewhat obnoxious plan into action.
