    MY TATTOO STORY: #1–VII

    Hi there. My name is Taylor. And I have a slight obsession with tattoos… Okay so maybeee that is a LITTLE dramatic. “Obsession” might be a stretch–but what can I say, I do love them! Each one has it’s very own story. Whether it was a drunken decision, an emotional attachment, or just a way to express your artistic style…it’s a story nonetheless! I get it, tattoos are fairly controversial! Even within my own family, there are some who approve, and some who couldn’t really care less about them… Which is totally fine! It’s a free country, to each their own! But hey, if it’s up to me, I’m just…

    Christmas Cheer Playlist

    “THE BEST WAY TO SPREAD CHRISTMAS CHEER IS SINGING LOUD FOR ALL TO HEAR.” Nothing gets me in the holiday spirit quite like Christmas music!! Elvis, Eartha Kitt, Bing Crosby…all blessing us with their joyful talent. Each year, November rolls around and it takes every ounce of self-control (that I don’t have) to hold off on blasting my fave festive tunes. First or second week go by, and I give in!! Yes, I’ve already found the 24 hour radio station and it’s programmed in my car. No shame!! Please just let me be holly jolly for like 2 whole months in peace:) In years prior, I would just go to…

    Aspiring Photographers: LOOK NO FURTHER!! (social media/blogging)

    “TAKE A PICTURE, IT’LL LAST LONGER” A fairly common saying that I know you’ve heard at least once! Now, the context in which this is being said can differ, but in the end, the meaning is the same! Pictures are an excellent way to freeze time. To stop and to take it all in. A way to look back on a certain place, or time, and just feel all of those memories rushing back. Of course, some photos come with scars, and it can hurt to look back at them…some may be full of such love that one simple frame can’t express it…and some may be so so simple, “you…

    Everything Happens For a Reason

    If you haven’t yet noticed–I am a bit obsessed with quotes! Each of my posts usually begin with a new one. And when you think about it, we will never truly run out of them! As long as people are talking, we will have things to quote. I love how it’s such a perfect way to bring people together. Whether it’s from a children’s book that we all know and love, or a catchy song that we play on repeat, there are words all around us that we can live by. “Everything Happens For a Reason” for example. When you think about the way the world works, it can get quite…

    What Goes Around Comes Around

    “What goes around, comes around.” A very common saying that I’m sure you’ve heard a time or two; and there’s a reason why…IT’S TRUE!  Whether we are discussing karma itself, or the hit Justin Timberlake song from 2009, the general idea remains the same. It’s like the story in Galatians 6:7. “YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW.” If all you do is put out negativity, that’s all you will bring in. But on the flip side, if you live a positive and uplifting lifestyle, that’s what you will get in return!  A very simple strategy if you ask me. I want to share with you, a little experience that happened to me…

    Tarteist Pro Palette REVIEW

    Some might say they like pina coladas, or even getting caught in the rain. But personally, I enjoy long romantic walks down the makeup aisle… Who doesn’t enjoy a nice stroll through the pre-lit mirrored shelves. And let’s not forget about the rows upon rows of brightly colored products just waiting to be swatched! Now THAT’S what I call fun. If you don’t leave Sephora with a hand covered in various shades of glosses and pigments: well, honey, you’re doing it wrong! Since most people are aware of my addiction to the glorious money-trap we call a cosmetic store, I received a gift card for Christmas! Now came the hard…
