I can still remember the day when I sneaked in to my mom's vanity to try on some lipstick. I could almost swear that they were glowing, no, sparkling—they were calling me. I took the brightest shade of red I could find, smeared it all over my mouth, and ran up to my dad asking, "Am I beautiful?" Needless to say, I looked like a clown that day. I would like to think I've come a long way from that, but I still look at the world of beauty the same way: a mix of one-part wonder, one-part curiosity and ten parts what-am-I-supposed-to-do-with-this-now.

The girl with the big hair that may or may not be full of secrets. I like boy bands and naps and pretty things. One Direction occasionally takes over my life. Oh, and I always say I'm never going shopping again. As if.

Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, some people just won't vibe with you, and that's totally fine.
