Spring Break 2.0

I went from 17° and layers to 80° and a bathing suit. Miami is beautiful, and finally getting a lot of sunlight after being surrounded by gloomy weather is amazing for your mental health.

I’ve only been here for just over 24 hours and I feel like I’m glowing (and that’s not from my highlighter). I dyed my hair to be a deep chocolate brown and I’m obsessed. It’s only temporary, though, don’t worry mom. My aunt let me go through all of her “extra makeup box” and boy oh boy did I do some damage. I’ll have a huge haul when I get back to share everything! My birthday gift was an adorable new bathing suit and an equally cute, flowy top. I got my nails done and they’re super cool and make me feel kinda fierce. You should do things that make you feel fierce.

Everything is so much brighter in Miami, and I’m trying to soak up the sun as much as I can before I go back. When I do return, though, I have so much planned. A lot of what I’ve been doing takes a while to execute, but I hope when it’s all done it turns out great!

To all of you sticking with me, thank you. You have no idea how much it means to me.

Remember to be bright, be you, and be beautiful.

We Made It!

So we made it to Toronto! It’s absolutely beautiful here and we couldn’t be having more fun. Our area has that young, hipster vibe and has tons of cute shops here and there.

We’ve only been here for one night, but it’s been awesome. Except for the one bar we went to first…they refused to serve us because they didn’t know what a Pennsylvania ID looked like, so they thought it was fake and told us to leave. Lol hello? Anyways, we found another small bar near us that was perfect for a casual drink.

The shopping here is great! You know how much I love makeup, and they have lots of makeup brands here we don’t have in the US. I haven’t done any damage to the makeup selections yet, but when I do, I’ll be sure to update you 🙂

Canadians are super nice and helpful, and they don’t hate Americans as much as we thought they would! Since the US dollar is worth more than the Canadian dollar, things seem to be a bit cheaper. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still expensive here. I fell in love with this dress only to find out it was $200 🙂 Needless to say, we’re watching our spending but still having fun.

Right now it’s really cold and the plants are dead, so it doesn’t necessarily look like the picture. It still has a special charm to it though.

More updates to come as the days pass, only a few more days in Canada then off to Miami!
