Genuine Happiness

I am genuinely happy.
My skin isn't clear, my grades aren't perfect, and despite the years of hard work, my blog and YouTube channel...aren't what society would consider "successful".
But I don't care.
I don't care because
  • I believe that my skin will clear up eventually
  • My grades aren't perfect but I worked my butt off for them
  • I finally feel like I know the direction I want my blog to go
  • I put so much time and effort into my videos and I'm proud of them
I believe genuine happiness stems from self-acceptance. It's so important to love who you are. Cherish your imperfections. If you don't like something about yourself, YOU have the power to change it. It's all so cliché but it's cliché for a reason.
It's okay to make mistakes, it's okay to eat a entire cake by yourself (guilty), it's okay to feel like you need new friends, it's okay to be yourself, it's okay to get an F on a test you studied so hard on (again. guilty), it's okay to feel lost, and it's okay to not know who you are. It's okay because life is like that, but we have and always will overcome our struggles.
Maybe it was the vitamins from my acaí bowl, but as I was eating it, I felt this sense of happiness. I realized that I was finally at a time in my life where I felt genuinely happy. I was never the best at conveying my feelings through words, but I hope you were able to take something from this post.
I think I will create a new series where I give tips on how to steer your life towards positivity ^_^

What makes you happy?
Family, Friends, & Food are what make me happy :-)

P.S. Who wants a recipe for my acaí bowl and granola?!


High Hearts

Sweater: Forever 21  /  Boyfriend Jeans: Forever 21  /  Shoes: Nine West

I hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day! I spent the day catching up with my friends at a cute little café. School has been so hectic for us lately that even though we go to the same school, we haven't been able to properly talk to each other for a good amount of time. After that, I spent the day doing homework-the usual.
I love how although my outfit only consisted of a sweater and a pair of boyfriend jeans, it looks so much nicer paired with the heels! I know Valentine's Day is long gone, but I'd love it if you guys could watch my Valentine's Day outfits video. This outfit and the outfit posted before is featured in there along with another one :) I don't think I've ever felt more proud of a video so it'd mean a lot if you guys could check that out!
Any-who, I've also been feeling on top of my blog-game as of late. I hope you guys have been enjoying my posts as much as I've enjoyed writing them!
