Happy Tuesday! I was really thinking lately about my blog and the direction I want to take it. I was thinking about new layouts, filters, etc. when it hit me... I did not just start this blog to share my love of fashion and beauty with you all (which no worries, I still will!) But I started this blog to have an open platform to share my ups and downs with you all with life, my health (aka being a type one diabetic--while loving donuts & hating needles) and of course keeping in mind that just like me you all probably go through the same stuff.
I honestly have always lived my life with no regrets. I believe that everything I go through in life whether it be negative or positive is for a reason and helps me to grow as an individual. I am also incredibly lucky that I have amazing friends, a sweet boyfriend, and family members who have seen me and loved me through thick and thin.
I really want this blog to be a place where girls can go for more than the latest trends. I want this blog to be a place you can go to when you feel down on yourself and need to laugh; a place where you go to get some inspiration after a bad break up; a place where you can read my posts and be like wow! she gets me. A lot of bloggers out there make it look like they have the perfect life...and trust me none of us are perfect! We all have days we feel heftier than usual or don't want to get out of bed.
But always remember that there is a brighter tomorrow... I know that sound cliche, but trust me. Learn to surround yourself with people that are your "safe havens", so when things get stormy you have your rocks. Learn to love yourself, even when you aren't at your best, and realize you can improve. Never stop loving you and always put yourself in the way of happiness. I know it's easy to read this and think yeah it's easy to read, but harder to live out but trust me, make little changes for YOU and you'll see the difference.
There are so many people ready to see you fail and put you down, but always remember that people throw rocks at things that shine. Let it go in one ear and out the other. Replace their negative words with positive words in your head.
I hope that IAP is a place where you can not only get your daily dose of all things fashion, beauty, and lifestyle, but also a place where you feel inspired. Hope you all have an amazing week and cannot wait for all the posts to come. Thank you to my dedicated readers who have always loved and supported me and IAP! XO
Hello my lovely reader! Happy Sunday!
I am starting a new division on my blog called Sunday Chronicles. Consider this your "Sunday W(h)ine Down"...grab a glass of your favorite wine and take a look at my favorite sale picks for the week as well as my weekly "venting session".
In my inaugural Sunday Chronicles I want to discuss how people are freaking out that Prince Harry opened the car door for his lovely Princess Meghan this Saturday (aka the royal wedding). Is this what the world has come to in 2018? That a guy opening a door is a huge romantic gesture? This should be a standard thing. If a guy does not open doors for me on a date it is the biggest turn off. Nothing is less attractive than a man who doesn't have manners. Called me old fashioned, but I think we need to revert to the good old days when men were gentlemen and because I think we should not expect any less. Every man should be treated like a prince, and every woman should be treated like a princess in a relationship, dating, etc. So take notes from the royals, and always display your best manners and always expect the best manners from your handsome boyfriend/husband/date! Trust me girl, you deserve it! But, let me know what you think in the comments below!
I hope you all have an amazing week ahead of you! Please make sure you are subscribed and following me on both Facebook and Instagram for lots of fun content. Let me know what you want to see on IAP by commenting below or sending me a DM on Instagram! XO

Hi my loves! I am so, so excited for today's post because I have been a fan of Converse since I was in like 5th grade (aka my awkward stage, don't ask for pics!) But Converse are a staple every girl (and guy) should have in their closet. Trust me, my low tops have been with me through three college tailgate seasons and always need a little TLC... I wash mine in my washing machine and they always come out almost new!
When the opportunity presented itself to collaborate with converse for their #ForeverChucks campaign, I instantly had to be a part of it! Honestly converse pair well with almost any casual look and they are the perfect shoe for when you want a comfy, easy option so you don't leave the house in your chancletas!
This is my first pair of Converse high tops and I had been dyingggg for these! Call me your basic Lourdes girl (and proud!) because there is nothing better than a pair of white Converse. You will be catching me in these all of spring and summer! Honestly what I love the very most about my Converse is that they never go out of style, like me--haha!
Tomorrow is EASTER! I feel like New Year's Eve was yesterday...2018 is literally flying by! I hope the Easter Bunny leaves some Converse in your Easter basket, and if not no worries, I have linked my favorite new pair below so you can style them with me! Let me know what you think about Converse in the comment section below. Thanks for stopping by the blog, I appreciate all of my readers so, so much! If you celebrated Passover last night, I hope it was amazing and to all those celebrating Easter tomorrow, I send my love. XO
