Ah, winter, either a fashion-lovers worst nightmare or favorite time of year.

Growing up in Northeast Ohio, I've become quite accustomed to the cold. As I'm sitting here writing this, I'm looking out my window at knee-deep snow and haven't left my house in three days unless it was for extreme emergencies (such as Bachelor Monday at my friend's house and Swensons).

However, as someone who loves fashion above all else, dealing with freezing cold weather while trying to dress to impress can be a struggle.

Here are five staple looks that I wear during the winter months:

1. All black

One word: athleisure. If I had to describe my go-to winter style in one word, this would be it. If there's one thing I hate more than anything it's wearing jeans. You will catch me in leggings until the day I die. Usually, I'll just throw on a hoodie but recently I've been loving dressing up this look with a black leather jacket.

2. Oversized denim jacket

Another go-to look for me is oversized denim jackets. They look cute with almost anything and give a cool vibe to any outfit. This oversized jacket is perfect to throw on with leggings and a hoodie, but I've also been LOVING that denim on denim is making a comeback. I personally love blue denim on denim but that can be a little much sometimes so black denim works too.

3. High-waisted jeans

Now, as I said before, jeans are my sworn enemy. However, these might just be the exception. If you see me wearing jeans, there's a 90% chance I'm wearing these. High waisted jeans are not only cute and super flattering, but they allow you to wear crop tops all year long! (Side note I am also 100% OBSESSED with this giant fluffy jacket and I wear it at least twice a week).

(Jeans- Urban Outfitters- BDG Mom Jeans, Sweater- Urban Outfitters, Wool Jacket- Urban Outfitters, Shoes- Timberlands)

4. Turtleneck tops

I absolutely love the look of turtlenecks. I think they give off such a classy look and there are endless ways to style them.

5. Over-the-knee socks

This will forever be my favorite look of all time. Over the knee socks not only work wonders by making your legs seem to go on for miles but allow you to feel like Blair Waldorf strutting around the Upper East Side. Pair them with a mini skirt and turtleneck= cutest thing ever.

(White Sweater- Urban Outfitters, Overall Dress- Urban Outfitters, Socks- Forever 21, Black Turtleneck- White House, Black Market, Miniskirt- Ann Taylor, Black Booties- DSW, Sunglasses- Charming Charlie).

I Have An Eating Disorder And I Refuse To Let It Kill Me

Even at my lowest, the number on the scale never seemed low enough... but was it ever worth the risk of losing my life?

Trigger warning: This article discusses topics that may be triggering for some readers.

I looked down at my thumb today. I know haven't been eating enough. I told everyone I would get all my vitamins and calories in. I totally wanted to eat more of the guacamole I bought the other day, but I counted what I had eaten and those numbers seemed a little too high. I decided I didn't need the extra helping, so I went to bed and the guacamole went bad.

When pursuing a degree that most deem 'useless' or a 'waste of time' there happens to be a lot of self-doubt and fear, especially with the pending doom of graduation around the corner. I remember when I was about to graduate from college with a Bachelor's in Acting, I was absolutely terrified.

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.
