One of my April goals was to improve the quality of my Instagram feed and grow my followers. After working on my photo composition, taking the time to adjust lighting, and even using my real DSLR to take photos and transfer them to my phone, I decided I was ready to grow my following. I had participated in one instagram loop giveaway before and had so much fun meeting new bloggers and watching my numbers grow, so I wanted to get in on one again. I looked for opportunities, but none were really coming my way and the month was quickly passing me by, so I thought to myself: "Hey Chels, why don't you just put one together?" So, having virtually no experience, I . . .
I'm a little bit late on getting this posted, but I seriously cannot express enough how much writing out monthly goals on here allows me to actually achieve something! I love that I can hold myself accountable for actually improving on things because I blog about them. So, thanks friends, for helping me better myself. For April, I wanted to revamp my sponsorship program, which I did! I am currently running a soft launch for free for the next couple of months to work out any and all kinks in it. (If you are interested in trying it out, you can go here to see what spots are still available!) I also wanted to get a job in California, which I did a week . . .
I was given items for free from styled classy boutique in exchange for this review. all opinions are my honest own. I'm not going to lie, California is slowly winning me over. With endless sunshine and so much to do in the outdoors, I'm not minding my life on the West coast. However, I know that my heart will always belong to New Hampshire, with it's endless streams and rock walls and hills. It could be easy for me to forget where I come from and get wrapped up in the West coast and all of it's glory, but I'm a New Englander at heart. I occasionally drop my r's, rooting for the Patriots is in my blood and Mount Washington will always be the most beautiful mountain . . .
I can't believe April is almost over! This year seems like it's flying by. Today I'm excited to bring you my favorite monthly post: In and Out! In & Out is a monthly round up of all the products that I tried and loved this month (IN) and the products that left me feeling a little bitter (OUT). Be sure to check out previous In&Out posts if you want to see what I've tried out and reviewed in the last few months. I buy all of these products with my own money (expect one that I won!) so all of these opinions are my very honest thoughts! IN: Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer: I decided to give this foundation primer a go on a recommendation from another . . .
Many thanks to eShakti for sponsoring this post! I received a free product in exchange for my honest opinion. I finished my last chemotherapy treatment on October 16th, 2007, three months after my junior year of high school started. After undergoing inpatient treatments for the better part of a year, I was excited to have my hair grow back and regain a bit of normalcy in my life. I soon realized that there was no going back to "normal" after cancer. My whole life had been altered with this one word, this one tumor that had changed who I was and who I wanted to become. I'm not going to lie, going back to "real life" was much harder then I thought. I constantly was . . .
