January has been slow to move, but I mean it in the best way possible. There has been what feels like all the time in the world to sit and reflect. Thirty is a big deal.


The easiest change to recognize would be visually. At the end of 2020, I decided to quit tanning entirely. If nothing else, the maintenance was becoming less worth the effort. But my true skin tone isn't far from what the salon gave me. And my makeup shade changed from 4 to 3, but that has more to do with wearing a face mask than my tan. Straight has has been the style of choice. It takes less time but also has more consistent of a look throughout the day. No more damage throughout the length of the hair from backcombing, no more extra products to hold that volume. Also, I've introduced sweats into my daily wear. See, even in writing this, I fear it might sound as if I've gotten lazy. That hasn't been the case at all. Natural? No, not even that. It's just a different look. My makeup will go right back to full glam as soon as masks are no longer. But this hair and style will stay. I like it.



Luxury items will stay on my list of priorities. They make me happy to obtain and wear on my person. Unboxing & review videos are some of my favorites to film. Skincare is a new hobby! At thirty, I believe that my skin will need some additional love which is fine with me. It's a new, welcome luxury.

Do I have predictions of the year to come? Maybe. I do think that we will finally be mask-free and safe. I am considering purchasing more home decor pieces, but have yet to decide whether it will be post-worthy. 2021 will remain just me and the dogs on my channel. I wouldn't have it any other way.






Here we are! So many thoughts are rushing through my mind right now. Welcome, new beginnings. I'm not as prepared as I have been for years prior, but I wouldn't consider the preparation (or lack thereof) ill. My life has been dedicated to hitting goals, which I have! So now the roaring 20's that I'll enjoy in my 30's, will be a time to relax & enjoy. This entire life has been a blessing, and this year specifically will be full of opportunities to sit back.

1990 was 30 years ago?! Here I am. In my three decades, time has most definitely been on my side. Each year has felt like an adventure. My late 20's were spent preparing me for this moment. Luckily, my priorities have served me well. Here I am. I am thirty!


No matter what, the past has been a learning experience. And if every piece brought me to where I am today, then I will continue to work at accepting everything with grace. This decade is mine, just as my entire life is. It took a lot to get here.


At 20, I was in a laughable place in life. I had no bank account, no driver's license, no sense of any direction. I had no support. For some reason, I always felt lonely in childhood because I didn't have my person. But as I got older, I truly realized you have yourself. There will come times when you meet people who do care enough to help you, and you will accomplish more with them. Still, I the only person you have is yourself. I knew that I wanted to be settled in a home, and to live a certain way. It took a bit of planning but I got there! At 25 years (1 month and 3 days) old, I purchased my home. At 30, I wanted that home to be my only debt, and it is.


Luxury has always been intriguing to me, and I've always thought it to be attainable. But I never want to live beyond my means. My career has allowed me to be able to purchase some key luxury pieces, and it won't stop here. After making sure the grown-up parts are taken care of: home, car, savings... I have been taking the time to enjoy myself in the luxury market.

No part of my YouTube channel or life in general has been meant to be boastful. Rather, I go online to review products and identify what I deem "worth it" or not. I try my hardest not to appear a certain way, but also I'm not too consumed in walking on eggshells to avoid hurting those who are too sensitive. It isn't up to me to console someone who hates luxury and clicked onto a video with Louis Vuitton in the title. I've become a woman who is not at all interested in what others think, or what others even do. Negative people are quick to use "arrogant" and "self-centered" as jabs because they want to normalize people being enveloped in gossip and talking badly about others. I say concentrate on yourself, help yourself, be yourself. It is much more fulfilling taking time to improve yourself than to sit and gossip about someone who is doing that.


It's early, but 30 has been my favorite age so far. I feel the best, I might look the best, and I've created a beautiful life.
