Retro-Inspired with a Special Guest

This is just further proof that I belong in skirts and dresses and not in jeans. I just don’t like jeans, okay? Also, it’s nice to break out the lipstick every now and then. The type I’m wearing in these photos is ELF’s Cheerful Cherry. It’s fantastic. I really like it, especially for fall season coming up.

And THEN, who came out to join me for pictures?

My sister has the cutest baby! He got shots today, but still managed to crack a couple smiles.

Oh babies. I love them when I can give them back.

Off to take photos of my sister and her baby! Perhaps I’ll put those up tomorrow.

When It Rains…

(the above photo is my absolute absolute absolute favorite)

When it rains in the summer, nothing makes me happier…but then the rain ends and you’re left with intense humidity. Not as fun. Leggings from Forever21, sweater from Old Navy, shoes from Forever Young Shoes.

Balloons and Sparrows

I really like balloons, so when I came to work yesterday and had balloons waiting for me, I was all over them. As you can see by the new header. And the photos below. I even did my hair and nails and makeup all nice! Balloons are special, I’m telling you. The dress is from Forever21, shoes are from Forever Young Shoes. Hair I got from this tutorial on Pinterest (and modified it a little).

Spring Fever

So I’m still in love with Spring! Also, I’m totally aware in the 2nd photo you can see the top of my tights. I blame the wind. And the photos seem weirdly out of focus a little, but THAT’S what happens when you can’t clone yourself to take photos. Of yourself. No, really, thank you Dad for taking them. (Next time press the button half way so it can auto focus on me)

Cardigan: Forever21 (it’s a new fav of mine); Shirt: Papaya; Skirt: Papaya; Shoes: Charlotte Russe (also wore these shoes here)

Sunny California

Today, it’s going to be 80 degrees. As soon as I’m finished typing this, I’m going to hop in a swimsuit and go sit in the sun. It’s also January.

This is why I live here.

New Years Dress

Yes, I know it’s a little blury. Yes, I know it’s not even Christmas yet.

The thing is, I bought this dress online and I just got it a couple days ago. I’ve never been so excited about a dress.

And the party I’m going to wear it to is an annual thing–and supposed to be amazing.

I guess we’ll see!

Make sure you subscribe to the blog to current on our giveaways. Another one is coming sometime this week, so keep checking!

Time is Money

Congratulations to Maria for a huge success on her first post yesterday! Haven’t seen it?! Well, go read her fantastic post on a pair of $396 shoes that she made for $13! I couldn’t tell the difference, seriously.

Who’s Maria? Oh. Wait, who are YOU? Oh. But what even is this blog?

Would you like a drink from my invisible water cup?

Shoes by Forever Young Shoes (similar), the skirt I don’t know (but here’s something similar), shirt from Forever 21. I literally just bought this shirt on Saturday and I can’t find it anywhere on their website. Forever 21 is a nightmare sometimes. Earrings from Charlotte Russe (similar). Lipstick from Forever 21 (in Rose). More on the lipstick and some fake eyelashes I bought tomorrow.

I went to see “In Time” this weekend and I loved it. It was really cleverly done. Plus, Justin Timberlake, so…yeah. Best movie.

We’ve all heard the phrase “time is money.” It’s true–if you look at life as being one huge opportunity to make money. If that’s your reasoning, then yeah, any time that you’re spending doing something other than working (gaining money) can be seen as a monetary loss instead.

That seems like a really depressing way to look at the world. Those must be grumpy people, always thinking their literally paying attention, paying thanks,  paying compliments and paying respect.

Although I do believe that our time should be well-spent, I also think it’s important to look at the world through unselfish eyes. I’d be willing to bet that if any of you chose to look at the world with the mentality of “what can I give people” instead of “everyone owes me,” you would find yourself much happier.

Or maybe I’ve been following the Dalai Lama on Twitter for too long…

November’s almost over! Make it count!

More photos from the shoot, including my three favorites (the last 3):

Count Your Blessings

Wow, a big thank you to everyone who looked at the blog yesterday! I had the highest views in one day since I started the blog back in August. Thank you!

Shirt (similar) and shoes (similar) from Kohl’s, leggings from Forever 21, sunglasses from Charlotte Russe.

Still not feeling too great today. It feels like I have a permanent case of the sads.

Here are ten reasons (in no particular order) why I shouldn’t be sad in hopes that my heart catches up with my brain:

1. Music is wonderful, and I’m lucky to be talented in it

2. I have two parents who love me more than anything

3. I have somewhere to go on Thanksgiving

4. I’m only 20 years old! I have my whole life ahead of me with endless possibilities

5. I have a clear conscience

6. I have had the privilege of learning from so many great teachers

7. I know that in the grand scheme of things, the past mistakes and hard times I’ve had will be a forgotten, distant memory compared to all the wonderful things I will do and accomplish in the next 60 years

8. I can find joy in so many things in life, like art, music and language, to name a few

9. I have confidence in a supreme purpose and meaning to life

10. I have never been more aware of the multitude of people who truly do wish the best for me, and I won’t let the one or two people who don’t, blind me from all my blessings.

Season of Change?

Leg warmers and jacket from Buckle, shoes from Forever 21 and dress is vintage.

With the leaves, temperature and seasons changing, I realized a lot can happen in just a short period of time. I’ve found the only way to keep going is to keep perspective.

On my flight into Utah, I decided that I wanted to cut my hair and dye out the blonde panels that I’ve had for the past couple summers as a sort of physical manifestation of starting fresh.

Everyone always tells me how beautiful my long hair is and how much of a shame it would be to cut it, even though I’ve been wanting to do it for a really long time.

I kept putting it off for various reasons, but I decided that change was already in the air, so why not be a little cliche and change my hair, too? It may have been a control thing.

I cut off about 5 inches and dyed the blonde to a dark purple. You can kind of see it in the first set, but I didn’t want it to be too obvious.

Needless to say, I love it to death and instead of missing my longer hair, I’ll give it a nostalgic wave goodbye and never look back!
