This summer I really needed to get away. Me and 7 other friends(4 guys, 4 girls) went to the Cayman Islands for 4th of July Weekend. Vacation and relaxation is all I needed, with a little bit of partying. I got an amazingly gorgeous tan and I was able to swim in clear water, snorkel with fishes, and kiss a sting ray. In the Cayman Island, kissing a sting ray means 7 years of good luck. I was happy to get away from school and work for a little minute. If you need a little vacation take a nice vacay with a fews friends, close to home, so you can save some money and have a good time. Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

During the spring and summer time I love to slick my hair back or into  a pompadour puff bun. It isn’t a great feeling when your hair is down and minor sweat drops are rolling down your neck, so thats why I love to wear a high pompadour bun. On youtube a beauty guru by the name of of “ItsMyRayeRaye” shows you how to achieve this simple hairstyle in very few steps and she also has inspired me:

One thing I truly enjoy is working out. Everyone is always trying to look great and get in shape for the summer, but why not look and feel great about your body all 4 seasons of the year. I believe you have to add your own fashion sense to your workout out clothes. When you go workout you don’t always have to look sad in dark greys or blacks, add some fab colors like pinks, yellows, blues, or fun prints to spice it up. Colors have the ability to make you you stand out and it can make you feel confident about your body journey. Also, eating colorful foods before or after a workout is also helpful to re-create your body internally. Eat fruits like strawberries, raspberries, and grapes, to give your body a boost of energy to be the King or Queen of Fashion Fitness.
