10 Ways to Change Your Look and Reinvent Yourself

It's time to change what you've been doing for years. It's time to reinvent yourself.


Change is bittersweet. It's always difficult to let go of what you've been comfortable with for years. But change is a positive experience because it gives you a fresh start. Change can make you feel more confident and give your life the rush of adventure you may need. Here are 10 ways to change your look so you can completely reinvent yourself and start fresh.

Get a Bold, New Haircut

The easiest (and most popular) way to change your appearance is by getting a haircut. That doesn't mean trimming a couple of inches off the ends. It means completely changing your hairstyle. There are so many directions you can go with this type of change. You can go from having super long hair to chopping it all off and rocking a bob cut. You could get bangs for the first time. You could shorten your hair and get layers. The possibilities are endless. Just make sure you've thought this one through and you're not chopping your hair off based on an impulse.

Start (or Stop) Wearing Glasses

If you need glasses or contacts to help with your vision, you can switch up the routine. If you've always worn contacts, try wearing glasses and see how it can completely transform your look. If you've always worn glasses, you can switch to contacts and it'll totally change your vibe. Or, you could just buy a different style of eyeglasses to switch up your look without using contacts.

Buy New, Different Styles Clothing

Your clothing says a lot about who you are. If you wear blazers and business suits people see you as a professional. If you wear long, flowy skirts people might see you as boho. If you wear leather jackets, you could have a more grunge look to you. No matter how you dress now, you can completely change your look and reinvent yourself by trying a new style of clothing. This can be difficult because you are so used to shopping at specific stores and buying the same type of clothing. Start by determining which style you want to go for and talk to people who have this style. As them for tips and where you should shop. Start out by just buying an outfit or two and seeing if it feels right to wear that style. If you love it, then you can continue to grow your wardrobe!

Switch Up Your Makeup Routine

The way you do your makeup can completely affect your appearance every day. You could start wearing more bold lipstick and eyeshadow to completely change your look. Or you could use darker or light colors. The ideas are endless! Check out YouTube makeup tutorials for some fun makeup ideas that are different from what you've been doing lately.

Stop Wearing Makeup All-Together

If you want to go all-natural, you could stop wearing makeup all-together, or only wear it on special occasions. This is a huge change, especially if you would wear a lot of makeup every day. Not wearing makeup will help you feel confident in your natural appearance and will also be great for your skin because it'll be able to breathe more throughout the day.

Whiten Your Teeth

This might seem like such a simple, small change, but it can make a huge difference. Your smile if often one of the first things people will notice about you when they meet you. If you don't feel confident in your smile or your teeth, you could really benefit from getting your teeth whitened. This will make you feel more comfortable smiling, which totally brightens your entire appearance.

Dye Your Hair

Just as getting a bold haircut can be a huge change in appearance, so is dying your hair. This is one of (if not the most) popular ways to change an appearance. If you have light hair, you could dye it dark or go for a super bold color. If you've had dark hair your whole life, you can add some blonde to your hair to completely change your look. The choices are endless when it comes to dying your hair, so make sure you do your due diligence before deciding on a color.

Wear Different Accessories

Accessories may seem like such a small part of an outfit, but they can really change your whole vibe. If you never used to wear accessories, simply adding some jewelry a watch, a hat, or bold sunglasses can give you an entirely new look without changing your style overall. You can use accessories to switch up your current wardrobe and give it a fresh new feeling without breaking the bank on new clothes.

Get in Shape

This is the most difficult and time-consuming tip on this blog. Getting fit requires dedication and hard work. If you're willing to put in the time and effort, you can start to feel and look healthier than ever. Getting fit will give you an increase in confidence that some of the other tips can't do. This is because you are making yourself healthy by working hard, which makes you feel really great about yourself.

Be Confident in Yourself

Once you've made changes to your appearance, it's important to be confident in yourself. The difference between two identical people (one confident, one not) is huge. Confidence really pulls a new look together and will make you feel great about the reinvented person you've become.

10 Photos You Have On Your Camera Roll Of Your S.O. When You've Been Dating For More Than A Year

A wide range from "Aw" to "WTF?"


My boyfriend and I just hit the year and a half mark of dating, even though it seems like we've been together forever. Over the months, we've taken many pictures together... from football games, to his track meets, to holidays. Although we may have a lot of pictures together, I definitely have a lot of candids of him in my camera roll. If you've been dating your partner for as long as I have or longer, then you'll probably notice you have these same pictures in your photos as well.

1. The awkward first photos together

We laugh at these now, especially this one. Why am I so pale compared to him? It was July! And also, we noticed not to long ago that I was sweating under my arms and his underarms were sweating on me... what a great first time meeting!

2. The ones for VSCO

Every girl who has a significant other posts them onto their VSCO. VSCO is like Instagram, but more has more aesthetically pleasing pictures and there are no "likes." The pictures that include my boyfriend on my VSCO ranges from him holding a bunny to him holding my hand while we went ice skating.

3. Them sleeping

I have so many pictures of my boyfriend sleeping (I promise it's not as weird as it sounds), I just think he's so cute when he's fast asleep while cuddling with me.

4. The embarrassing ones they want no one to see

He's going to kill me when he sees this... but we all have those embarrassing Snapchat pictures that we start to send each other because we've gotten more comfortable with one another.

5. The ones for Facebook

The good looking pictures so you can keep yours and his family updated on how you two are doing. I took my boyfriend to a baby bird meet and greet since he loves birds and has one for a pet. I posted this cute picture of him and his new friends on Facebook so my family can see our adventures together.

6. Old pictures

One of the best parts of dating someone is finally seeing their old pictures. Although, sometimes they may make you cringe... like the one I posted above of my boyfriend after prom in his sophomore year of high school.

7. Their accomplishments

My boyfriend pole vaults for his college and he's really good at it. He just went to division III nationals in March because he qualified! I'm always at his meets so I make sure to get him on video in case he or anyone wants to see. I always try to snag a picture with him too because I'm always so proud.

8. The straight up ugly ones

He sure knows how to make me laugh. And I know he's going to be mad at me for this one too but I think it's a talent that he can do that with his stomach! Sorry, Adam, I promise I still think you look good when you send me these snaps for the most part.

9. But you have the hot ones too

He may be funny and sweet, but he is pretty good looking too. I know us girls keep some attractive pictures of our S.O.'s so we can remind ourselves of what a great looking partner we have.

10. FaceTime screenshots

If you and your lover go to different colleges like my boyfriend and I do, then FaceTiming happens a lot. Sometimes I get some great screenshots, like the one above, to make fun of him later.

3 Ways to Save Money on Utilities During Winter

As college students or young adults, we're always looking for ways to save some extra money each month. Here's how you can keep your house warm without spending a fortune on heating this winter.


Don't leave your heater blasting for the next two months and pay a ton of money to the utility company. Here are three ways to keep warm and save money.

Make Sure Your Heating System Is Performing Optimally

Your heating system is what will keep your house warm throughout the winter months, but don't pay a ton of extra money because your system is working harder to heat your home. If your heating system is working at its best, it will save you a ton of money during the winter. If you think your system isn't working properly, you can have professionals come out and take a look.

Keep Your Home Insulated

Insulation helps to keep your home warm without using extra heat. By keeping your home insulated, you can save a fortune on utilities because your heating system will be doing a lot less heating. If you don't want to pay for insulation, you can do small things around the house to keep it warmer. Keep the curtains closed all the time to hold in heat. Have the fans turn the opposite way to circulate warm air. These small things can really make a difference.

Bundle Up

Instead of jumping straight to turn the heater on when it gets a bit cold in your home, bundle up with a sweater, sweatpants, and a blanket first. Keep yourself warm using comfy clothing instead of paying money to heat your home. You'll still feel just as toasty, and you'll see a big drop in your monthly utility bill from not using the heater as much.
