Hey guys! Sorry about the lack of outfit posts lately, I've been meaning to fix that, but man...between building up a YouTube channel, editing videos, working a job on the side, and stressing out over finding an apartment for next semester, it's been a little hectic.

Oh, and I've been hired to do my first graphic design job! 
Haha, my boss at the local coffee shop I work at really liked the posters I made for our July special (it was my first time making them since the girl who usually makes them quit), and he asked if I'd redo the menu signs inside as well. Whoo-hoo!

Anyway, that's my excuse for slacking on the blogosphere side of things...
But on a good note, I've been having a blast creating content for my Youtube channel! So if you want, check me out HERE and stay updated.

Today, I'm sharing the most recent video I made where I styled up some pieces sent to me by Dressin. Now if you remember, I made a wishlist post featuring some items from their site. Today, I'm showing you exactly what those pieces look like in real life along with my honest impressions on them. While I'm grateful to every company that sends me an item to review, I strive to keep my opinions 100% honest and not let that influence me. That way, anyone who's trying to find out more before actually shelling out some money can go in with a better idea of what they're buying. 

I hope this helps and that you liked it! Let me know in the comments below what you thought and which look was your favorite. I'll probably get a pictorial post featuring these items as well!

Any suggestions for future video ideas? I'm all ears!

So good to see you back with outfits! I totally understand how much you have to juggle though--youtube videos are a TON of work. That's why I only get around to making one a year, tops haha. Best of luck with your job and finding that apartment! HUGE congrats for the graphic design gig. I'm positive your menus will be fab.

I'm really in love with that laser cut top--I have a similar cut on a top, and I can confirm that it's fragile. It looks beautiful with the F21 mint! While the off-the-shoulder top wasn't a hit, I'm happy to hear the others were. If I ever need to quench some online shopping thirst without spending much, I might give DressIn a try :)

Rofl, I laughed when I heard your issues with the cut out top, because I usually move around like a maniac, so this top wouldn't survive me :D
Loved the video lady, you are so adorable, and check out that hair, duuuude, it's so awesome!
Don't worry about not having time, I'm experiencing the same thing right now :D Good luck on the jobah, so excited about it! ^_^

Btw, forgot to mention. Editing videos is hard work man! When I did my youtube videos it basically took me whole day, shooting, editing, not to mention I was stiff as a board and didn't know how to behave in front of the camera, so had to take a lot of shoots till something good and natural came out, so, I feel ya! :D

Glad you are enjoying your youtube channel so much and having fun with videos, even if it does mean you don't blog as much as you'd like.

It's great that you got to do some design work too, how exciting! :)

That's really cool that you have a youtube channel too. I think my favorite is the first look with that blue romper. It really compliments the teal ends of your hair. I've never heard of this Dressin brand before. I may check them out now. Thanks for sharing.
