Guess what day it is!!! (No, it’s not Hump Day.) But it is the first day of school for me, and I spent all weekend moving into my awesome new dorm. Now I’m scrambling to finish this blog post for y’all before I head to my first class of sophomore year. I apologize beforehand for the poor lighting in these photos – dorm rooms, am I right?

There’s always something so refreshing about “reinventing” yourself or your look to start a new stage in your life (school year or otherwise).

So without further ado, here awaits ­­­seven easy ideas for some well-deserved self-pampering. Continue reading “Easy, Breezy, Beautiful, Makeover”
