"Treat Yourself"

Posted on Aug 21, 2015

Anybody who's a fan of Parks and Recreation knows all about the phrase "Treat Yo'selfff" coined by Donna and Tom . It basically means to take a day for yourself. We all have those days/weeks when we just want to relax or unwind. Last year was one the most annoying years I've been through so far and it took a lot of "me" time to rediscover what I truly love. But it also showed me how much I can put up with :)... And since there are many many more years to come, it's important to realize how to deal with any tough situation, whether it's wanting to murduhh someone or if it's just taking out time for yourself. Above are some of the ways I remind myself that one bad day doesn't have to lead into the next.  Usually when I'm down, seeing posts like this reminds me to kick myself for even allowing the thought of self-pity lol. How do you girls cope after a hard day or even a hard week?

1. Nails
I think anything that's meticulous or anything that requires concentration helps me relax. 

2. Teeth Whitener  | 
Smile more.

3. Facial Mask
Look good, feel good :).

4. Movie
This is my favorite movie. I don't know how many times I've watched it.

5. Book |
A book that usually helps me appreciate what I have....like sanity.

6. Game
I love the Sims!

In Between

Posted on Aug 19, 2015



Hey! It's been raining heavily the past couple of days but yesterday I went ahead and took photos between the downpour. Why not! Then I reorganized my room again and worked out (finally lol). My workout routine has been so bad lately...I just started jogging again. I'm kind of a loner so these past few days have been pure bliss,  especially since there's only a week before the fall semester starts. Didn't summer just start?  Before I even begin to become nostalgic and complain about school , I'd like to talk about the last couple days of summer! I finally planned a small local vacation for Alex and I. Our schedules finally aligned! Also, there's a craft fest that I miss everyyyyy year and finally I remembered to check and plan for it.
This is the kind of outfit I'd wear to both occasions; to the indie craft fest and for a regular summer morning. This kimono is especially comfortable for summer mornings and pairing my favorite black shorts with this airy patterned tank required little to no jewelry. I figured in this case, less is more. I went for this small pendant by Roebucks again. I'm always temptedd to wear it as a layering piece but since I love it so much, I save this necklace for certain outfits :).

Over My Head

Posted on Aug 15, 2015


I've had this hat for quite some time now but it took me awhile to find a hairstyle that didn't murda me in this heat. And usually whenever I try to wear hats, they fall off of my head anyway. So I decided to pull this accessory on over my 'twist-out twists' on the way downtown with Alex. Perfect outfit for summer mornings, especially with the open sleeves. Sadly, it looks like I have to get rid of these shorts and find another pair of acid wash! Shout out to Fei of Fancy Muffin who could just make acid wash shorts lol.
This weekend I reunited with some friends from high school. We went to a wine and art walk and then we went to a jazz restaurant. I have a few photos from the event but the art walk ended up being about two blocks long. We were told next weekend there would be an Indie Craft fest and I can't wait to attend!
Well, right now I'm editing photos while it rains and I'm looking up last minute getaways before the summer ends. Maybe just to St. Augustine or somewhere in Georgia.

Coral Springs

Posted on Aug 11, 2015



Hey everyone! I wore this this outfit the second week of summer on a trip to Coral Springs. I went there to visit Alex and his family and just to get away for the weekend. I love taking road trips; road trips and hikes. It always seems to clear my mind. Although...I won't lie my work out regimen has been so bad lately... but it's okay lol, I'm annoyed enough with myself to start up again. Yay for motivation haha.  I haven't slept in about 24 hours... :P
Well my friend Monique swapped clothes with me and I received this shirt and a few other nice T's in the end. I decided to pull on khaki cropped pants to balance my bare shoulders. Then for added modesty I went ahead and added my white kimono.

Normal

I love Forever 21. I'm always buying their clothes online. Today I unintentionally dressed head to toe in Forever 21 and fall colors on the way out to shop.  Perfect shoes for walking around and perfect skirt (w/ shorts) for trying on clothes. It's always fun adding prints to a graphic top and whenever I go out I always make sure I push myself to dress up, especially after having some bad vibes thrown at me the previous day. But hey, I'm all about self love and not worrying about the small things. That's something I figured out just as I turned 21. I haven't mastered it yet of course but I'm not as hard on myself as I used to be and it's gotten a lot easier :).  It feels guuuuuuud to come out of my shell seemingly for the second time <3.
Tomorrow I'm thinking of posting your classic 'what's in your bag' post. I think it's been at least a year and it's time to add more variety to this blog again. Also, I can't wait to feature my new rug! xx

Little black dress. Finally found one, fit and flare... although it's a bit big hehe. I'm so happy to say that today is the last day of summer classes and I doubt I'll ever do it again...It's been too long since I've truly truly enjoyed myself over the summer. Meaning next summer I"m either working or vacationing.
This outfit is perfect for a lunch date or a jazz concert and I wore this to the latter with my mom. There were local jazz bands playing at the outdoor auditorium and as you can see, the parking lot was empty. Haha once we arrived, I had enough time to take photos and walk back to our cars in the rain. We went to a movie and wend out to dinner instead :). That's one of the good things about the summer, I always get more quality time with my loved ones.

Very Casual

Posted on Aug 5, 2015





If you follow me on Instagram then you've already seen this outfit but I'm deciding to share this and an additional post with you guys tonight. Simply put, this outfit is very causal. So casual that I changed shoes for photos.
Lately I've been recycling my clothes to make room for fall and huge sweaters and I almost threw this top away impulsively. Also, I'm wearing some new additions to my jewelry collection! I love this necklace from Forever 21 and I've always wanted to try mirrored sunglasses in this shade.
I think after a few more outfit posts I'll add a jewelry or shorts post. What do you girlies think? :)

Boheme

Hey hey girls. I took these photos one early morning last week. I was determined to beat the humidity. Victory lol. It's already August and this is my last summer that I can really eff around. No more part time jobs and no more summer classes next year. This summer was odd too. Every plan that I had seemed to fall through. Events ended or tickets sold out before everyone made set plans lol. But I can't say it hasn't been fun so far. I've been inching away from regularly blogging for a long time and I think the month long hiatus really helped me relax into myself instead of looking at what every other blogger has been doing. Our community has gotten so large and it's hard to find blogs Not to follow now. I love it but it should't discourage me now should it. It's been awhile since I've wanted to share my true voice.

Well! I love this outfit. I finally found something patterned to wear with this necklace that I found at a local shop for about $5. Also, I'm totally in love with the color of these pants. This is the first time I've shopped at Cato's and I had no clue they had such cute items! I ended buying another pair of pants and a pair of shorts on sale. Anywhoo, I almost thought this outfit was too match-matchy because of the purple within the print but I thought my 3 year old mustard bag was a perfect pop of color, besides it's hardly been worn. :)
