I Almost Lost $400 Due To Fraud (+ What I Learned From It)

April 24, 2015

The importance of staying on top of your finances
On Wednesday, something really scary (and eye opening) happened to me: someone STOLE $400 dollars directly from my bank account (via my debit card.) At first I was in shock. Nothing like this has ever happened to me. How could someone be using MY debit card when it’s safely in my wallet? It’s not like I lost my debit card. It was safe and sound tucked away in my purse. Then I thought, “This must be a mistake.” The day before (Tuesday) I had paid off two of my credit cards, so I thought maybe they just took an extra day to process. After reviewing my online statements, I learned that wasn’t the case. Someone in San Diego, CA was using my debit card and they STOLE $400! That’s when I got angry! There was no way I was going to let someone get away with fraud (and neither should you!) Here’s how I almost lost $400 in the blink of an eye:

What Being a Blogger Has Taught Me + My 300th Post

March 27, 2015

5 Things I've Learned From Blogging
Today I’m crossing something very special off my bucket list: Writing 300 blog posts! It might not seem like a lot but when I first started this blog a little under two years ago (my official blogiversary is in May,) I honestly had no idea how long this blog would last or how much I’d end up LOVING blogging! I first started this blog the summer of my junior year of college after failing to get an internship (ironically, about two weeks after my blogs debut I got TWO internships but that’s a story for a different time.) I wanted to have some kind of online portfolio that showcased my writing, photography skills and knowledge of HTML and other computer skills. Who would have thought that this little blog would be the source of so much happiness in my life and would give me so many amazing opportunities (some of which I’m STILL in awe about!) Here’s five things blogging has taught me:

Favorite Fashion Finds 38. (ft. Lilia Kazakova)

March 26, 2015

 Who? Lilia Kazakov of NAPPY HAIRZ
What She’s Wearing: Monki Scarf, Choies Skirt, H&M Coat, Primark Jumper, Alexander Wang Shoes, and Bershka Bag.
Fashion Icons: “My style icon is Kylie Jenner. Not only do I love her make-up (totally obsessed with the Kylie Jenner lip,) I also think she’s the perfect example of somebody that can mix and match sporty, edgy items with more feminine pieces. ”

What fashion means to her: “Fashion means a lot of things to me, but the most important thing for me is that fashion makes it possible to be whatever I want to be that day. If I want to be a girly girl, I can wear something pink, but if I want to be a cool chick, I can throw on some ripped jeans. It’s a way of showing all of the different sides of my personality to the world without actually talking to people.”
