New Year, New Me, & a French Seam!

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone! I typically cringe at New Year goals… however, this year I decided to make some. Some for each month & some for the entire year. Small life changing, but obtainable goals! 🙂 I am a true believer that growth happens on a person’s own time, however, it all starts with…

The Leopard Print Trend

Animal print was in more than ever this year! While it seems to never fade, it was very relevant this year. Leopard, cheetah, and zebra was among the most popular few.
