sometimes i dress up

Hello friends! Although, Patagonia shorts and a tee shirt is my preferred outfit of choice, sometimes I dress up. This post contains a few outfits that I’ve worn recently. I love colors + I have been trying to incorporate as much color as I can into my style! PSA : ASCOTS ARE IN!!! Might I add that taking photos in the school bathroom, without any ladies walking in and giving you terrible looks is quite difficult.     – From the girl who loves yellow

taylor holliday wears makeup?!

If you know me, you know that I am not into makeup at all. In tenth grade, I decided to go out and buy probably about $150 worth of nice makeup that I’ve probably used about three times to date. Bad decision. I have troubled skin & makeup just seems to make it worse (for the most part)! UNTIL I FOUND GLOSSIER!!! Glossier is a makeup & skincare brand out of New York. I think it’s safe to say that I may or may not be one of their biggest fans (I am, without a doubt). They have a variety of skin care products ranging from face masks to lipstick. Their products work extremely well. Not to mention their packaging… which is BOMB. You guys- I am a sucker for packaging. I seriously cannot even lie, I’ll buy anything that’s in a cool bottle- in fact, that’s what caught my eye in the first place! If you’re interested in purchasing products from Glossier, click here for 20% off your purchase. I currently use quite a …

a guide to new york

Obviously I’m no expert. Well, I’m not quite sure that anyone can be a so called “expert” of a city. All I know is that I love cities and anyone that knows me knows that I love New York. Writing that made me think of those ‘I Heart New York’ shirts- pair one of those bad boys with mom jeans + my Adidas and you’ve got me SOLD. Okay… moving on. Like I said, obviously I’m not a native New Yorker. But, overtime I’ve gathered quite a few spots that, personally, I am a big fan of. When I visit a new city, I try to find local spots and get a better feel for the neighborhood that I’m in. I get this feeling when I’m in the city, one that I can’t seem to explain. The energy is bouncing off the walls. There is something about walking in on a side walk and passing thousands of people daily. Every unit in a building tells a different story. I’ve visited New York a handful of …

things i love

A couple of months ago, I started to jot down some things that I wholeheartedly love. And by love, I mean LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE. Get the point? I thought so. To be quite frank, I have absolutely no idea what to write about. I have decided to share some (A TON) of things that I love, in hopes that you’ll get a better feel for who this totally random, weird girl is that you’re reading words from. Here are quite a few things that I love… one- Jesus two- people three- young life four- chipotle (specifically & only my homies on np parkway) five- backpacks six- flowers!!! seven- new york eight- music nine- pretty colors!!! ten- my “in my head…” pinterest board eleven- sunshine twelve- books thirteen- transparent conversation fourteen- summer nights + windows down fifteen- peace sixteen- raspberry lime king of pops popsicles seventeen- birkenstocks!!! eighteen- dalmatians nineteen- camp twenty- traveling twenty one- cats (i used to be terrified of them, but now i am OBSESSED???) twenty two- true friendship twenty two- …

i don’t know how i feel about saturdays

I’m not quite sure how to begin this paragraph, post, entry? So, I guess this will have to be the start. Last year, I created a blog to share my thoughts about my faith and my journey with self love in hopes of reaching someone on the other side of the screen. You see, I’ve always had a love for writing. There’s something wonderful about having a beautiful thought or an exciting idea and being able to document it. Recently, my brain has been overwhelmed with thoughts and ideas. I believe I’ve overwhelmed myself. I’m not “good” at keeping a consistent paper journal, so I thought that I’d give blogging another shot. My purpose for this blog isn’t the same as the other blog that I had created last year. I’ve been contemplating joining forces with the “Blogosphere” for quite some time now, but I was hesitant due to the substantial mass of middle aged, Christian ladies that have blogs. BUT HEY! I’ve decided to go for it. To be completely honest, I am super …
