Happy New Year!

Hey everyone!

 I’ve been pretty MIA these past few weeks and if you don’t follow me on social media, you probably think I stopped existing. Lol. These past few weeks I really needed to take a time out from life. I’ve felt super stressed and bummed out so I decided I needed to recoup myself before I try to take this blog to the next level. This year I will accomplish my goals for this blog and I want all of you to help keep me accountable. Consistency is the key to success this year. I will write every week, no matter what. If you love what I write, let me know! It motivates me more than you all know. I slacked SO much this past year and this year I will not do anything half assed. I have so much going for me this year and I’m going to take it to my full advantage. The biggest news I have to share with you all (for now) is that I am going to London for an entire MONTH this summer to study what I love.. MAKEUP! I’m so excited and I cannot wait to take you all on this journey with me. Every year holds a crazy amount of obstacles, but that’s what makes life worth living. We wouldn’t love the great moments so much if we weren’t suffering leading up to it.

So, to start off the new year, here’s the first photo shoot collab of the year with Elkk Photography! This might just be some of my favorite pictures I have ever seen of myself. Desiree truly knew how to capture me at my best moments. If any of you ever get the chance to work with this woman, DO IT! Be sure to check her out of Facebook and Instagram @elkkphotography ! 


Once again making it obvious I don’t wear bras lol.


I think this outfit was a perfect AZ Desert Princess look. The colors all worked together so well and I’m so proud of myself for coming up with this look. The vest is Free People. The booties are Free People as well. The dress is from Nordstrom by Astr. The kimono is by Topshop. The bomber is by Cinq à Sept and I’m completely obsessed with it. S/O to my mom for getting it for me for my birthday! I’m not sure who the necklace is by, but I love these types of necklaces because they always add a nice edgy vibe to spice up plain outfits!  Also, anyone wondering about the hair: all I do is french braid my hair to the side and finish it in a fishtail! 

Well once again, HAPPY NEW YEAR! I love you all. Let’s make 2017 the best year! 
xx.

  1. I as well as my friends were actually looking at the great advice found on your website and so instantly I got an awful feeling I had not expressed respect to the web blog owner for those techniques. Those guys happened to be for this reason excited to read them and now have actually been using them. Appreciate your being well considerate and also for picking out these kinds of excellent topics millions of individuals are really desirous to learn about. Our own honest regret for not expressing appreciation to you earlier.

  2. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  3. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  4. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  5. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  7. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  8. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  10. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  14. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
