Summer is one of those seasons when I want to break out those squeaky clean white on white shoes. Then the little voice in the back of my mind goes through a checklist of the day’s activities to protect the innocence of those beautiful white sexy chucks. The wet grass, dust, dirt, the possibility of someone spilling something on them.
Keep those annoying fly aways out of my face whist giving a little pep to my step. Throw my hair in a bun when it gets humid and I honestly wish in that moment I had no hair type of situation. In California it gets hot, not Arizona or Mexico hot but still. Triple digit do not touch me unless I’m dying kind of weather.

Ever wonder why you are never the same size across all clothing brands? Possibly freaked out after you assumed you gained weight when you were a size two last trip but a size six this time.

Officially titled vanity sizing by the industry, to conger up insecurities to increase buying power by women who are pleasantly pleased to find out they are a size XXS (extra, extra skinny).
Onto the working world, where your attire sets the first impression. Dress code varies between formal and casual. If you do not know the dress code prior to an interview, try out a semi professional look from below or something similar. Shoes can vary between Converse to a formal high heel depending on your ability. Do not wear shoes you know you cannot walk in as it appears as if you are not confident.
It’s that awkward time of the year where some days are chilly and the next day is blindingly sweaty and icky. These hot days have been wreaking havoc on my skin. Makeup should be catered to the season, in order to keep your skin in check which makes this time of year the worst.
