I’m Back!

Happy new year everyone! January has been a long month full of ups and downs, self reflection, new beginnings, starting overs, and a lot of goals (and the year just started!). This year I want to be my most authentic self and find out who that person really is. I will be documenting all of my most memorable experiences on this blog this year and I can’t wait to share it with you all, and to look back on it later.

See you soon

How to INSTANTLY Transform Your Outfit

Transforming a basic outfit into a stylish masterpiece doesn’t need to be difficult or expensive. Over the years I’ve figured out how to make my outfits look so over the top that people ask me where I shop numerous times, and when I say “Forever 21 & Zara” they’re so surprised. The difference is that I can stay in a store for 2 hours going through every single shelf and clothing rack making sure I don’t miss any unique and expensive looking pieces. I’ve decided to share with you a few of my go-to pieces to transform my look (affordably) so here are the pieces I use to look stylish, featuring some affordable options.

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.
