Updates: Hosting a YouTube series, Dominican Republic, & more…

Hi my loves! I'm planning on spicing things up on the YouTube channel this summer and for the first video of the season, here's a shout out to beautiful Dominican (Puerto Plata)! It only felt fitting to kick off the sunny season with this one! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvtHXjLXa1M&feature=youtu.be I've always wanted to dive into Premiere Pro and advance…

19 things to do before hitting 20

Turning 19 is apparently a milestone because you've just become mature enough to make alcoholic choices in the eyes of society and well, law.

Glendon and Fall(ing in love with it)
