Lately, I’ve been trying to add simple yet trendy pieces to my wardrobe. By that, I mean pieces that are really easy to style and easy to wear. Let’s be honest, we all a couple of things in our closet that we hold on to, but are not exactly “easy.” They might not fully fit right, or they might be hard to accessorize.

    5 Things Being A Dancer Has Taught Me

    Happy International Dance Day!! Growing up, dance really defined who I was. Now that I’m *shudders* an adult, I’ve realized how much of my personality and who I am was shaped by my background in dance. When my parents were paying for costumes and classes, they were really paying for so much more and I’m so grateful to them for letting me grow up in the studio and on stage. Dedication First off, can we talk about how there really isn’t an “off season” for dancers? Let me break it down for you. We’ve got the beginning of the season, which is in the fall.

    A Review Of All 6 GLAMGLOW #multimasking Face Masks – Which One Is Best + Is It Worth It??

    I haven’t talked a lot about skincare on the blog, but it’s definitely something I want to write more about. I have fairly sensitive skin and I tend to have acne-prone skin. Because of those two factors, I’m always on the lookout for new products to try and treat my skin to. I’ve used many different face masks – peel offs, sheet, clay (you get the picture). But for some reason I had never tried GLAMGLOW’s. So instead of buying multiple pots of it, I decided to get their #multimasking kit and try it out. Inside the box, you find “SUPERMUD“, “YOUTHMUD“, “GRAVITYMUD“, “THIRSTYMUD“, “FLASHMUD“, and “POWERMUD.” I’ve decided to…

    🎉ONE FULL YEAR🎉

    WOW. Just wow, you guys! One full year of Abundance of Abby. A full year of sharing my life with the internet. It’s just so crazy to me. I had made a couple of blogs before (middle school/high school), but I had never told anyone, because I was afraid I would get made fun of for it. Oh what I would tell that little 14 year old. Funny enough a couple of months ago I actually found one of my first blogs. I thought I had deleted it, but apparently not. Very funny, but oh so cringe worthy😂 Needless to say, I made sure it was deleted now. I’m so glad…

    Adding Vitamins Into My Daily Routine – Care/Of Review + Promo Code

    Backstory: Last year when I went off to college, my mom made sure that I had a bunch of vitamins and supplements to take with me. I had a skin, hair, and nails gummy, I had a calcium chew, and a multivitamin. At school, I also ended up buying some gummy fish oil vitamins to help with my skin. (I got the fruit flavored ones, because I think fish oil is so grody 😂) Needless to say I was stocked on vitamins for a while, but once they ran out and I came back home the only vitamin I successfully kept up with taking was the fish oil. Oops, my b. …

    An Honest Talk About Eating Habits

    Today’s blog post was not going to be about this. While it was going to be health related, after stopping at the grocery store with my mom and spontaneously buying a cookie from the delicious Monica’s Gourmet Cookies (the signature chocolate chip to be exact) I realized that my eating habits have changed. And that it’s actually in a good way. Because honestly, I’m not as in shape as I was last year. Last year, I had way more dance classes and went to the gym multiple times a week. I made more conscious choices about what I put into my body (although some might argue that’s just because I didn’t want…
