My Tips for Selling on Depop

FullSizeRender 33

Hello everyone!

Today I wanted to share with you my tips and tricks for selling on the app Depop. If you don’t know what Depop is, it’s an app where you can sell new or gently worn items that you don’t want anymore! I really recommend using it because not only can you declutter your closet, but you can also make a few extra bucks.

When you haven’t sold many items on Depop, you can get discouraged and feel as if you’ll never make a sale. I’m here to tell you that this is not the case! You will be able to make some sales eventually, and hopefully these tips help you out.

Tip Number One: Update Your Items Regularly. This tip is extremely important so that multiple people will be able to see your items. All you have to do on the app is click edit, and then press save. You don’t even need to edit anything or add more to the description. It’s good to do this because then it updates how long ago the item was posted. For example, instead of saying two weeks ago, it will change to ‘just now.’ This will then allow your item to pop up as a recent upload, helping more customers to see it.

Tip Number Two: Reach Out To Potential Customers. It is so important to make sure you’re interacting with other Depop users. I do this by making sure to respond to comments and direct messages when I receive them. Besides this, I also send out a direct message whenever someone favorites an item or follows me.

Tip Number Three: Post Good Quality Photos. Pictures are a major part of Depop. You can’t sell an item without a picture of it. I recommend taking good quality photos of your items. Also, if an item has flaws/some wear to it, show that too! Make sure you include as many details, both good and bad, in your photos. Also, if your item is wearable, posting a picture of you wearing it is always a good idea.

Tip Number Four: Use Your Hashtags. Descriptions are also very important when trying to sell on Depop. In your description, you should be completely honest and give as much information as you can. However, it’s also very important to use your hashtags! This will help your items pop up when someone searches a key word that you’ve included. Make sure that your hashtags are relevant though. It’s not going to do you any good to post hashtags that don’t go with you item.

Tip Number Five: Make The Experience Memorable. Make buying from your Depop shop a unique experience. I personally do this by including handwritten notes in each order. Additionally, I wrap each item in pretty tissue paper and make sure it’s packed well. Find a way to make your store stick out! It will encourage buyers to come shop with you again.

I hope these tips were helpful! If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments and I’ll get back to you.

Meet A Style King: Ryan Winnen

There are people everywhere with great taste and impeccable style. I recognize this daily just thinking about fashion, but in all honesty, I’m not someone who has many style inspirations. There are few people whose style I admire. The whole situation is kind of like calling someone your best friend. You meet amazing people all the time, but it takes more than a nice encounter to call someone this. It’s the same with style inspiration.

Ryan Winnen is one of those few people whose style I really like.

Ryan is the drummer from COIN (all of their music will be linked below), but he’s also someone who’s really killing this whole fashion game. I’m excited to finally be talking about him on here today!

One thing I love about Ryan’s style is how effortless it all looks. Everything is put together from very basic pieces to create a statement look, which I love. People tend to stick to basic items and then pair it with a piece that’s more out-there, but the way he chooses to style his outfits make them so much more interesting.

Although he does mix and match colors and patterns, he also really pulls off outfits of one color scheme, whether that’s his cream overalls and white shirt or his dark black leather jacket and Dr. Marten’s.

Some of these photos that I’m showing are more recent than others, but I loved all of them too much. You can see how his fashion taste has evolved as time goes on, but it’s still him and his style, which is so incredibly important in fashion!

Overall, Ryan’s style shows that unusual combinations can be brilliant and that the simplest pieces can sometimes make the best outfits.

I’m so glad that I finally got to make a post on someone whose style I adore. Special thanks to Ryan for letting me use his photos on here and for being such a sweet and genuine person!

Make sure to follow Ryan’s Instagram linked here and his Twitter here. You’ll probably see my numerous comments about how I think he’s such a king of fashion.

Also, check out COIN and their latest album How Will You Know If You Never Try because it’s incredible! (I promise one day I’ll stop talking about them, but I don’t think it’s going to be soon.)

Thank you for all of the support as always 🙂

Talk to you soon!

In The Garden

I’ve been picking up a few new wardrobe pieces for this summer, and I think now is the perfect time to talk about them. I had a recent shoot with my friend, and I love all of the photos and my outfit! What’s a better way to show you these awesome new clothing pieces and photos besides a blog post?

I feel like the sunglasses that I’m wearing are a very statement piece. Sunglasses with colored lenses are so in right now, and I’ve wanted to get my hands on some for awhile. I finally tried these ones on at Urban Outfitters and really liked how they looked. Although these come in a few different colors, yellow lenses are especially trendy right now. They’re a bit funky and give me a throwback vibe but hey, who doesn’t love an interesting and statement piece?

I’m also wearing my Fenty Pumas which have been in style for about a year now. I got these while I was in New York and have yet to feature them on here. I personally love these. The platform makes them look super cool, and I can guarantee you that these are more comfortable than they look. I’ve been wearing these as my go-to sneakers since I got them. They’re definitely worth the investment, and come in a variety of colors and material. I chose to stick with the white leather and white platform with the classic black puma stripe.

My last new item is this red shirt from Brandy Melville. I’m not sure why, but I’ve been into the color red lately. I feel like part of it might be because I’ve been listening to a lot of albums that I love that have the color red associated with them. Anyways, this shirt was a great purchase! I don’t own many red clothing items (practically none), and the color of this tee is perfect. How cute does it look paired with my choker, Pumas, and shorts?

What about you guys? Any new pieces that you’re wanting to get your hands on? You know I’m always down for trying out new items!

I want to give a special thank you to my friend Alanna who took all of these photos (and even more). How amazing are her photography skills?!

Here’s what I’m wearing:

Jamie Top in Red from Brandy Melville

BDG Pinup Shorts in Black from UO

Far Out Translucent Metal Aviator Sunglasses in Yellow from UO

Fenty Puma by Rihanna Creeper Sneaker

Backpack from Rebecca Minkoff (links here)

Lots of love as always.

Glossier Review

FullSizeRender 28




Hey everyone!

Today I’m going to be doing a Glossier review because I know it’s a well-known brand right now, and I’ve gotten questions about how I like it before and what to buy. I figured this would be a helpful blog post to make because I’ve been using a couple of products for around a month now. Besides that, I had the opportunity to actually go to the Glossier showroom and have a shopping experience there, so I can tell you a little bit more about that as well.

I’ll start off by talking about my experience at the showroom. The showroom was so beautiful! It had many mirrors and stands with the products on them. There were lots of employees walking around who would take your order. After that, they would hand you a slip of paper with your products on it and you’d bring it up to the register. Once you’re there, they get you fresh products from the back and put it in one of their famous pink pouches with stickers. In general, the showroom is so pretty and totally fits Glossier’s aesthetic. It was really awesome to go to the store in person so that I could test out different shades of things. If you’re ever in Manhattan, I definitely recommend checking out their showroom if you want to try out their makeup or just take a few cute pictures.

I bought The Balm Dotcom in Rose and the Haloscope in Moonstone. I had heard a lot of people talking about the lip balm, so I wanted to give it a try. After swatching the highlighters on my wrist, I knew I had to add one to my shopping bag as well.

First, let’s talk about the Balm Dotcom. This lip balm is also a universal skin salve. I primarily use it as a lip balm, but if I have extra on my hands after using it, I’ll rub it into my cuticles because I do find it to be moisturizing. This balm does leave my lips feeling smooth and not greasy, and I do think it’s a good moisturizer. All of the flavored ones smelled so good, but the rose happened to be my favorite! I don’t love it as much as my Neutrogena MoistureShine lip balm, though. It’s a bit cheaper than Glossier’s balm, and I find that it heals my lips way better when they’re chapped and has SPF. However, by no means am I undermining the ability of this product. I would definitely still recommend it, but I would personally rely on it as a nice daily lip balm rather than a healing one for when your lips are super chapped and dry.

When I first started trying the Haloscope, I wasn’t sure how I was going to like it. The first time I applied it, it felt sticky and peeled away my powder foundation. However, as time has passed, I have learned to love this highlighter. To start off with, instead of just gliding it on, I now use my finger to dab it on where I want it. This helps my foundation to stay in place. The highlighter is still a bit sticky because it is not oil-free, which is a little bit of a bummer. I know a lot of people like Glossier because of their natural looking products, but I wish they would also put some more natural ingredients into their cosmetics and skincare (for example, adding SPF and making things oil-free). However, this highlighter does look amazing on, and gives your face a natural glow that is definitely noticeable. I got mine in the shade moonstone because Topaz was too dark for me, and Quartz was pinky toned. I wanted a very natural color that would go with the tone of my skin. Moonstone worked perfectly!

Overall, I would recommend Glossier. It does have some really nice products, but if you have oily skin, you may want to stay away from the highlighters. I do think everything was a good purchase though, and some of the items do have nice and organic ingredients, such as moisturizing properties and natural antioxidants.

I hope this honest review gave some of you some insight and helped you out! If you have any more questions, feel free to leave them in the comments!

Layered Gold Necklaces




Hey everyone!

I’m back, and I have summer break so I’ll be doing a bunch of blogging for the next three months! Yay! I’m so happy to be writing on here again!

Today I wanted to write a post all about layered gold necklaces. As you may already know, I love chokers and I think they look so cute when paired with other necklaces. However, a lot of my chokers are silver, and a few months ago I decided that I wanted to start getting some gold necklaces. The first necklace I picked up was my Emily name plate one. This is the shortest gold necklace that I have, and it’s fourteen inches long. I love the fit of it because it’s not super tight fitted like most chokers, but it falls right below your neckline. The next two necklaces were both gifts from my mom. One of them has little crystals dangling off of it, and the other has different stones and icons with crystals as well. I love all three of these necklaces so much!

I’ve been noticing that a lot more people have been wearing gold jewelry lately. I can tell that gold necklaces are definitely a big trend right now for the spring and summer. They are such an easy accessory to throw on, and they immediately make your outfit look put together. I wear these necklaces on a daily basis.

Although I would wear these with most outfits, here are some ways that you can style them:

  1. Wear some denim shorts, a black, fitted t-shirt, and some strappy sandals for a cute and causal summer outfit.
  2. Pair colors that compliment gold in order to make the necklaces really stand out (for example: pink and gold).
  3. For a fancier look, wear your hair up and a cute dress. Having your hair up will draw more attention to the necklaces and will look very sophisticated and classy.

This is one trend that I’ve been loving lately! If you guys like these style of blog posts, please do make sure to leave a comment. What’s your favorite trend for this summer?

Also, feel free to leave blog post suggestions down below! It’s good to be back 🙂

The New York Diary





Processed with VSCO with f2 preset







“The city seen from the Queensboro Bridge is always the city seen for the first time, in its first wild promise of all the mystery and beauty in the world.” F. Scott Fitzgerald

Hi everyone!

I traveled to New York two weeks ago and had the most amazing experience. I’ve been wanting to go to New York for years, so it was very exciting to see the city in person rather than through pictures or videos. I was looking forward to seeing how it met my expectations. Sometimes we can look at places and think they’re magical, when in reality they’re very average.

New York did not disappoint me. From the night I arrived until the plane ride home, I had such a great experience. I was able to do so many things; I shopped nonstop, walked miles everyday through the beautiful city, got to meet up with one of my best friends, and overall just had a super fun trip with my dad!

The atmosphere in New York is really interesting. I was able to see so many chic and classy outfits while I was just walking down the street. Everyone was so different from each other. The streets were constantly busy with new people, art, and ideas.

I just wanted to write this blog post so that I could share with you some of my favorite moments during the trip. I know I keep saying how amazing the trip was, but I really do mean it! It’s a new favorite city of mine, and I can’t wait to go back there again.

It’s good to be home though. Sorry for my lack of posts; I’m busy with exams and schoolwork. Expect some summery blog posts in two weeks when I’m finished 🙂 xx.

Talk to you soon!

Current Favorites! April 2017



Hey everybody!

When picking out what products I’ve been loving for this blog post, I noticed that all of them seemed to either be pink or related to beauty. Today I’m going to share with you some things that I’ve been loving recently!

Kate Spade Cardholder: This cardholder is a real lifesaver! Whenever I have to go somewhere, chances are I’ll either have my purse or my backpack for schoolwork. It’s not always practical to be carrying a big wallet to school, and I figured I needed something to put my cards in. I finally got this from Kate Spade when it was on sale, and it’s so helpful! It can fit a good amount of cards, but also fits right in your pocket. Also, the color of it is so cool! It’s holographic fuchsia, so as you can imagine, it looks awesome in the sunlight. I definitely recommend something like this if you’re someone who’s running around a lot or just doesn’t like to carry a big wallet!

Clinique Almost Lipstick: I’ve been using this lipstick for the past few months, and it has easily become my everyday go-to. It’s kind of a mix between a lipstick and a lip balm. It adds a little bit of color to your lips and makes them look shiny. It’s also moisturizing and lasts for awhile. If you’re looking for a day to day lipstick that’s not super pigmented but still adds a little something, check these out! I have mine in the shade Pink Honey. It makes my lips look so pretty and natural. I don’t have a swatch of it here, but I will add a link to it so you can see how it looks!

Fresh Cream Rollerball Perfume: This perfume is so amazing! I’m surprised that I haven’t already mentioned it on here before because I love it so much. I started using this in December, and have been applying it weekly ever since. It smells exactly like its name: fresh cream. It has a lovely vanilla smell while still having a warm fragrance to it. I’m definitely going to buy a bottle of this when I run out because I love it so much! I know a lot of people have different tastes when it comes to perfumes, but I think this is such a universal scent. You really can’t go wrong with it! Also, it lasts all day. I love my Jo Malone perfume, but I’ve actually noticed that this lasts longer (and is less expensive)! Definitely go check this out if you can!

Butter Horse Power Nail Rescue Base Coat: I love Butter’s nail polishes, and I decided to try this out to see if it would help my nails. I do think it helps them stay stronger! I noticed that in some situations where my nails might’ve broken, this base coat has protected them. I think Butter’s nail polishes in general really help strengthen nails. They’re made of more natural ingredients, too. Also, this nail polish makes your nails look so nice and healthy when there isn’t any polish on them. I’ve gotten compliments on my nails just when I’ve had this on because of how glossy they look. This stuff definitely protects your nails and also makes them look healthy!

Mario Badescu Rosewater Spray: I have heard so many things about this spray, and I finally decided to try it. I’ve only been using it for a couple of weeks now, but I love it! First of all, it smells so good and feels so refreshing. I use it to set my makeup, and I honestly do think it helps it last. You can’t go wrong with this mist because you can use it as skincare, a makeup setter, or as hair product; it really depends on what you’re going for! It smells so fresh and just like sweet roses. I absolutely love this!

Strawberry Acai Refresher from Starbucks: I have been so obsessed with this drink from Starbucks lately. I seriously feel like I’m getting one at least once a week! If you haven’t tried this yet, do it! It’s so refreshing and has such a nice flavor to it. It’s also perfect for getting you ready for the summer!

I hope you all liked this post! I’m heading to New York next week (eee!) so make sure to be checking up on here and my Instagram to see all of the things I’m up to!

Lots of love. X
