From Blogging to Boutique


Beauty and fashion have always played a big role in my life. Since I was a child I enjoyed creating new clothes and accessories from the clothes that I out-grew. I remember making daisy dukes from my old jeans, and I even created a jean purse from old shorts. Now that I've become older, I still try to be as creative as I can with my clothes and accessories.

I recently realized that many people stop and ask me, "Where did you get those shoes" or "I love your outfit. Where did you get it?" Most of the things I wear look pretty expensive, but are actually not that bad in price. I believe that EVERYONE deserves to wear great clothes that won't cost them an arm and leg, which is why...............

I've decided to create a small boutique to sell my favorite outfits and accessories at a reasonable price! 


  • I will ship worldwide!
  • EASY!! Just go to, look at what you like, email me at, listing the items, amount and size that you would like to order. Then, I will respond to you quickly, explaining how to pay.
  • After that you will receive your items shortly! 

Sneak Peak of my Items...

Thanks for you support and for reading!! xx

DORM TALK: Transform Your Dorm from Blah to Fab!


Summer is almost over and soon it will be time to go back to school. This is an exciting time for recent high school grads. The transition from high school to college is always fun, especially if you are studying abroad or in a different state. I remember when I started University! I was anxious, but ecstatic at the same time.

DISCOVERY SUNDAY'S- Threla: fragrance.


For those of you who don't know, I am not originally from Boston. However, I moved here about three years ago for University. Living in a new state and city is fun because you have the chance to explore different things. Boston is rich in culture, food and history! So I've decided that every weekend I should discover a new fashion, beauty or health boutique or small business- whether it is popular or not. This allows me to discover new places that people might not know about and share with my favorite beauties on my blog!

The first place that I have discovered is a unique boutique called Threla which is located in Cambridge, MA. Believe it or not, but the boutique was so close to my apartment that I felt foolish for never noticing it before.

Rub a Dove Dove, Away with the Fuzz. (Dry Hair? Click here)

Got dry hair? Read here!
My mother always told me, "You're hair makes the biggest difference. You can go from dull to glamourous with a nice hairstyle." I never really got what she was talking about until I got older, and now I completely understand what she meant.

I have pretty dry hair. If I don't blow dry and flatiron my hair, it just looks fuzzy and frizzy. If you're anything like me, you can understand my frustration. Taking care of curly, wavy, fuzzy or thick hair can be tiring and annoying! But- NO MORE WORRIES my beauties because I've got a trick that will literally save your hair, especially if it's a little damaged. I will share one of my best-kept hair secrets with you so you can say good-bye to dull and unmanageable hair, and say hello to beautiful soft hair!

I adore Dove products- from bath products to hair products. However, you can use any type of hair products that you believe work best for your type of hair to do this little trick at home :) This can be done on ALL hair types!
