Hi Friends! Update.

Hey loves πŸ‘‹πŸΎ 

I’ve been a bit busy with current events in my life at the moment, but I wanted to stop by on my blog and show some love to everyone who tuned in for my Snapchat Takeover with @BeautyWOC. I had such an amazing time getting all glammed up in front of the camera, meeting new people, and just being myself. During my takeover I had one-hundred something people who tuned in for my snaps. Seriously means so much you guys!❣️❣️❣️❣️

After the takeover and answering everyone’s questions I decided that it would be fun to get out in the world and snap some photos at my favorite location Lawson Gardens here in Pullman, WA. The photos came out stunning thanks to Kenzie who photographed me & snapchated for me while I was getting ready! Here are the photos we captured + a little cat walk. πŸ˜‰
