April 2021: That Extra Pop of Jewelry

If you ask me, an outfit is not complete without the right jewelry added on top. Jewelry does not have to be over-the-top—it can be simple! Jewelry can be so fun because you can make it unique to you. Pick the style of jewelry you like and OWN it!

March 2021: A Thrifty Kitchen

Kitchens are the best and perfect spot in your house where you can turn it into whatever you want it to be. It’s a fun way to spice up your house and add your personality to it. The best part about thrifting items for the kitchen is that a little soap and water is all you need to make them brand new again.

February 2021: Scarfs

Winter is still going strong and having a scarf handy at all times is a top priority for me! Scarves are so fun and so trendy for both men and women. (And hey, these days it can double as a face covering.) Scarves are also easy to stick in your bag or keep in a car!

What’s iconic about it is its ability to appeal across gender lines.
