Post Breakup Makeup (and Pampering)

Post Breakup Makeup (and Pampering)

breakups1-600x310

Breakups are hard. There are thousands of songs about how much love can suck.

My ex and I broke up about a week ago. We met at the musical theater intensive I was involved in over the summer and he was my first real relationship. Long distance relationships are hard, and it was time for ours to come to an end. I look forward to meeting someone new who will treat me right.

Easier said than done, right? Breakups are hard for both parties, and this transitory stage has to be handled in a healthy way. My breakup sophomore absolutely destroyed me, but channeling your grief into taking care of yourself will help you move onto a new chapter in your life. I hope that my tips can give you some solace. Know that if you need someone to talk I’m always here for my readers.

For my lovely returning visitors and subscribers, you may have noticed that this blog has changed. The new theme is not the only thing that will be different here! Read below to see what is coming up.

Schedule: The new posting schedule will be each Friday and Sunday. If for some reason I cannot post one of those days I will post on the other, and if I cannot post on either day the next post will be moved to the next week.

1: Paint on a base coat to protect nails.

2: Paint each nail in the base color you would like. You can pick whatever base you want, you’ll be covering them with stripes later.

Two of the Most Inspirational Fashion Designers

Two of the Most Inspirational Fashion Designers

Fashion designer Anthony Ryan Auld

It’s true that there’s an abundance of fashion designers in the industry, but there is a reason that a select few stand out among the rest. These artists have overcome incredible hardship in order to grow a business and hone their craft- something we can all learn from.

Elie Tahari

When this iconic designer first immigrated from Israel in 1971, he had almost no money. “I didn’t have a place to sleep and I was homeless… I slept in the parks on the benches. I thought I was camping. I was camping in New York. That’s a good way to look at it – it’s an adventure.” He eventually found work changing lightbulbs in New York’s Garment District with a second job in a boutique.

Four of the Best Spring Makeup Tips

Four of the Best Spring Makeup Tips

Fashion Blog 421 002

Hey there everyone! The Fashion Mentor is here to give you her best spring makeup tips!

As the seasons change, your makeup and skincare routine must also do so accordingly. Check these five tips to get a head start this season!
