Looking back is an important part of life. Looking at the mistakes, the memories, the chances you took, etc. They make you who you are. Whether 2016 was your year, there are moments that you can look back on and be thankful for. Those good days where you just smiled because everything was going right (finally); and they may have only lasted for a day, but they happened. Maybe it's because I'm riding one of those life highs right now or maybe I'm just an optimistic person, but I like to reflect. Talking about my firsts and favorite moments make me smile ear to ear. So I made a list. Mostly it's for me, a reflection of my year and proof I didn't spend 2016 just watching Netflix and drinking coffee.

Traveled to Europe

Experienced all different cultures, foods, art all around Europe. This is number one because I believe it had the biggest influence in my life. Traveling gives you a whole new perspective

Studied abroad in London

Need I say more? Studying abroad is not only about what you learn in the classroom. 

Was featured in Marie Claire Magazine

Starting the year off right. I was featured in the February issue of Marie Claire. This copy will always have a place on my nightstand.

Attended Camp PINK for College Fashionista

Last summer I was sent by College Fashionista and Victorias Secret PINK to attend Camp PINK in New York. My job; have fun and take lots of Instagrams. 

Guest blogged for Meijer and attended a Meijer Style Event in Grand Rapids

Had the opportunity to blog for Meijer Style throughout 2016. Then was invited to attend an event in Grand Rapids to promote their Fall fashion line. 

Modeled in Threads Fashion Show (As well as ran their Instagram)

Modeled in CMU's very own Threads Fashion show. Pretty self explanatory. Such an awesome experience wearing clothes made by my peers.

Insta-worthy Moments

Thank God for music festivals.

Got my first apartment. (with a walk-in closet; lemme tell you it's great.)

Became an Editorial intern for College Fashionista

I write weekly for College Fashionista; last semester I covered beauty

Finally became brave enough to get a tattoo. 

Thanks 2016 for some good memories.

The Mauve Trend

Loving the mauve trend right now, especially in makeup. Mauve is the perfect color for you green-eyed gals. But honestly, I think any eye color can rock the look. Normally I stray away from color when it comes to my eyeshadows. I like to keep it pretty natural, but now and then I'll try out something new and get hooked. To create this color I blended a burgundy and shimmery tope shadow. I applied it to my upper lid and underneath my eye. Then loaded on black mascara. I paired it with a soft matte lip as well. 

What makeup trends do you love for fall?

Meijer Style Recap

Recently, I was invited to a fun-filled weekend of bloggers, fashion, and photos hosted by Meijer Style in Grand Rapids. The event allowed us to network and create content for Meijer Style and our blogs. I've included a sneak peek of my outfits and photos I took throughout the weekend. Meijer provided all of the clothing but allowed us bloggers to style our looks. Some of my favorite pieces included the olive green bomber and flared denim jeans. Also, I loved all the accessories, the chokers and pins helped personalize my looks. 

The first location of the shoot was at Robinette's, the cutest apple orchard. We channeled our fall vibes into a picnic themed photoshoot. 

 Pantene and Covergirl were on set for hair and makeup. I'd like to say I mastered waterfall braids and smokey eyes, but I'll leave that to the professionals. 

And lastly, the sneak peeks. I'm doing two posts for Meijer Style on my looks. The outfits I styled will also be featured on my blog, nest week. I'd like to give big thank you again to Meijer for inviting me to the event.

Finally back at it. After 3 weeks, I think I'm finally recovering from post London sadness. Studying abroad is such an amazing experience that I would recommend to any college student, no matter what you are studying. If I could go back for longer I would. A month time span is not enough to explore an entire city. Check out some of my favorite places below... and yes a video is coming very soon.
