Sea Calling 

“Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.” -Maya Angelou 

Purpose Tour 

Sunday night, I went to Justin Bieber’s second concert in Miami, and I must say it was an amazing night. I love concerts because I like to see talent up front, and my passion for music is just as big as my passion  for fashion. During his concert, he played the drums, the guitar, danced, and sang beautifully. I was never the biggest fan of his but that night I gained a lot of respect for him. His passion for what he does and his humbleness really inspired me. I was so happy, with the music blaring in my ears and the passionate  people all around me. Not to mention the really cute merchandise (which I’ll be styling in a later post). If you ever get the chance to go to a concert, go. Scream your lungs out, and don’t record too much. Keep the memories in your mind, and live in the moment.

Better Days

I obviously want my blog to be a positive place. Not only for the people it may help, but for myself. I’m still going to be posting fashion and lifestyle photos, so if that is what you enjoy about my blog, don’t worry, those posts will still be here. I want this to kind of be a personal diary if you will. Just not so deep. I’ve been wanting to write all my thoughts down somewhere, but I’m not the biggest fan of writing. I considered tweeting my thoughts, because that is the only social media I post my feelings on, but then I remembered. I have a blog. A place on the internet that I created as a creative outlook for myself, that I can look back on. So here I am writing this.

We all know this feeling, so I thought you, reading this, would understand. One word. Stress. I usually get a little stressed out here and there (don’t we all?), but for the past two months, or month -and-a-half, I’ve been extremely stressed. Over everything. You may be thinking, “why didn’t you just talk to someone about it?” and the answer is, I can’t. No one understands. My thoughts are all jumbled up and the best thing to do is to type them out, like I am doing right now. I’ve been stressed about boys, school, exams, college, passing my driver’s test, friends, losing weight, and everything in between. I know those may seem like the classic “teenager problems” and they probably are, but it’s so much deeper than that. This isn’t the darkest place I’ve been in, and if I overcame that in the past, I know I can overcome this. They tell me to be patient, but doesn’t patience run out? Because I feel VERY low on it.

Typing this all out has helped my mood so much, and I hope you could relate to this post. If you did, I’m glad that there is someone out there who understands me. Just know that better days are coming. At least that’s what I try to remind myself.

Worth 1000 Words

As you all know, I love taking photos. In my camera roll is a fair share of random photography of different things I see or do that have a little backstory behind them. I’ll start doing posts like these more frequently, because I like the idea of them. It’s a bit personal because you’re getting the photos that no one else really sees because they aren’t posted on social media (most of them anyway). So I’ll stop rambling and show you the photos. They’re not the MOST interesting thing in the world, but they’re memories to me and I like them, so make of them what you will.
