2018. PAGE 2 OF 365.
Majority of New Year Resolution's are self-improvement based and usually follow the look good, feel good concept. eShakti has been a favorite custom clothing brand of mine and they totally understand how good someone feels having a piece that fits them like a glove. To me new clothes are an automatic happiness booster, but it's not like I need a new calendar year for me to shop more. Who am I kidding. 

I had a calm NYE here in New York, but the picture now is throwing clothes around my closet and dusting off my suitcase because tomorrow I will be traveling to the land of croissants, haute couture, and berets. As Audrey Hepburn would say, Paris is always a good idea.

I told myself I am only bringing the things (& people) I really like into 2018 with me. Doucce gave me this set and it is one of those things that I will be bringing. As much as I love makeup, I'm not really one to aim for eye makeup involving color, BUT I am trying. My comfort zone lies in smokey eyes and golden hues, but 2018 is for getting fancy. I absolutely love the colors and pigment in this set. Besides the shadow & blush compact, the mascara (volumizing? yes please.), eyeliner, and lip stain + gloss is included.

Not gonna lie, but this has to be the best hair line that I've used at a drugstore cost. In the past I have paid $50 for shampoo + the coinciding conditioner and pretty much gotten the same results except this one is around $16 combined. 

Their PR team introduced me to some of their products and impressed is an understatement. The Grow Long line promotes hair growth and it doesn't leave any residue, just vitamin E.

I am a proud Happy Planner and if you are not familiar it is a popular line of planners and basically a lifestyle. Happy Planning revolves around using an stickers to make unenjoyable events (i.e. laundry day) or unforgettable memories 10x better. It's a planner and the person planning has the ability to get really creative with their book. Anywho, I have many of the Happy Planner sticker books, but when Stickerapp introduces me to their company I decided to make my own. 

Basically I picked images off Google that I liked and Stickerapp prints them out for you on heavy sticker paper. It's made my planner so much more personal now that I have OMNIVOGUES and cutesy fashion stickers.

You know when you haven't seen someone in a bit and they just drop a bunch of news on you. Good, because that's pretty much the situation at hand. If you are following me @raquelringgold which I hope you are, I am sure you saw that I was recently crowned International Junior Miss New York Teen 2018. I have a crazy journey ahead of me this upcoming year, but I wanna save all that talk for an upcoming YouTube video.

Also, while on the subject of YouTube, I am doing VLOGMAS. Yaaaaay. Make sure you subscribe to my channel to see all of my videos leading up to Christmas, and I will of course still be making consistent content following. I finally got the whole editing thing down and I think it's gonna be a great extension of OMNIVOGUES. 

The sweater weather mood is real and I am all about cozy vibes at the moment. It is finals week and then voila, it will officially be the finale of my first semester of college. That was ridiculously quick. Back to this SheIn coffee sweater, I absolutely love wearing one heavy piece that is warm enough to then just throw a jacket on over it. We had a little bit of snow the other day in NYC and sweaters like this are absolutely wonderful because they are casual enough to lounge in, but presentable enough for the real world in case I decide to stop hibernating.

fitzcarraldo (n.) an image that somehow becomes lodged deep in your brain—maybe washed there by a dream, or smuggled inside a book, or planted during a casual conversation—which then grows into a wild and impractical vision that keeps scrambling back and forth in your head like a dog stuck in a car that’s about to arrive home, just itching for a chance to leap headlong into reality.
