I'm still here! I promise, I've just been so busy with finishing up school stuff (5 art classes= a lot of work...) and work and such. I've been working on my Etsy endeavor, and Brian and I have been apartment/house hunting!
Just checking in, and I apologize for my lack on here in general- I really miss looking at all your blogs, but in a little more than a week I will be doneeee with school (yay!)
It was finally nice out today! After class I called Brian to say "Outfit pictures!!!!!!!" I was so excited. I got to wear my romper and my awesome new sunglasses Brian bought me from Vans.
Romper: Charlotte Russe | Cardi: Mom's | Sunglasses: Vans | Mocassins: Minnetonka | Necklace: Betsey Johnson
P.S. I've been super busy with school stuff lately and work, so I haven't been able to really check up on anyone's blog lately! I would really love it if you left a link to your favorite post/outfit as of late in your comment so I can go check it out! I want to get back on track with my blogs!
I've been having a really really off week/month/seems like forever. I don't know why but everything seems so lackluster.
I'm coming to the realization that I don't want to go to school to become an art teacher, and I don't know whether it's because my classes are so awful I find myself hardly going, or because I truly want to become an entrepreneur and open my shop of things I make. I feel like the norm is to go to college for 4 years, graduate, and get a normal job. But what if that's not what I want? Of course I love learning about art, but my classes are so dry, and the projects allow barely any creativity that I feel my love for art slipping away. I don't want to go to school for two more years and spend a lot of money on a degree for something I don't really want to do. I hope that I sound reasonable- and not like I have no idea what I'm saying.
I'm currently going to a county college and need to take two more summer classes to graduate. I know I can push myself to finish this and get my Associates degree, but I don't know if I can push myself to take out a student loan for a TON of money for the school I would go on to for a degree I am so unsure of.
I feel like all of this has been sucking the life out of me- though it shouldn't. I've always been a really good student with all A's and the occasional B. This semester I feel like I don't even care. It's just that awful. And I feel like it's affecting everything else in my life. Things just don't feel the same to me- and my hatred of my school has caused a couple fights with Brian, who loves his classes and his major and can't seem to understand how I am so uncaring about mine.
If you read all of this know how much I appreciate it. Seriously, thank you. I kind of just needed to get this off my chest. I feel like the only person in the world right now who feels this way, and everyone I talk to doesn't seem to understand. I've been too stressed to really update this blog with too many happy things, so now maybe you can see why. I didn't go back and correct this post or anything so sorry if there is a ton of errors, it all just came out like word vomit..
See, told ya it was random! Had to put Pokemon White on there although I have a feeling I will be buying it by the end of the week. I just can't resist the new Pokemon cuteness! Oh, and I never wanted an iPad until they came out with the white one. Did I ever mention that I refused to buy a Macbook Pro and instead bought a classic Macbook and upgraded it's insides like a Macbook Pro simply because I wanted a white one? Heh, I'm really picky over the design of things!
On another note it snowed in New Jersey today! (On the first day of Spring........) Hoping by the end of the week it all clears up for some Spring outfit-y goodness!
Just a couple things i'm really excited about ATM...
New undies from Aerie! I can't be the only one that gets way too excited about new underwear... And Aerie seriously has the most gorgeous ones right now! (It's the only place I will buy undies and bras from!)
Vintage kitten planter! I found this in an Antique Shop and needed it so bad! I also bought a few pretty cacti and succulents to plant, they are amazing!
Anddd here is my other dress I snatched up from the Modcloth sale. I think it's so beautiful, but it's so fragile it's almost scary wearing it! Not much to say except I'm starting working at my ice cream place again this weekend! I'm really excited to make some money ha. And my spring break also started today. So excited for the nice weather and outfits that don't need jackets covering them up!
Oh! Andd Brian is taking me to see Red Riding Hood tonight. I am so very excited, I absolutely love fairy tales, and when they get made into movies, it's amazing!
PS. My blog is in the process of being changed. I used to be really good at all html stuff from when I played Neopets religiously, but Blogger is a whole knew realm to me and I am quite frustrated! If anyone knows any good sites for free blog layouts, or could just help in general, I would forever be in debt to you!
Today Brian and I went to iHop (soo nommy!) and I got fabric (and an amazing sewing basket!) from JoAnns to make a pouch for my instax! The dress I am wearing I got from Modcloth's Cabin Fever sale and it's so cute. I just hate how the sleeves are slightly poufy so they buldge through my cardgian. Ah well. Anyways here it is, an outfit post! P.S. It was super windy today, and slightly chilly, I can not wait for nice weather to take good outfit pictures in. Not 100% happy with these but it's something!
My amazing fox salt and pepper shakers. They are soo beautiful I can not wait to move with Brian and put these in our kitchen! Also my amazing terrarium which was a gift from Brian for Valentine's Day. It's from Moss Terrariums, and i would seriously recommend anyone to them. (My terrarium came packed so well!) It is so beautiful and I am so happy to have a plant that I won't kill (I'm awful at watering plants...) I want them in all different sizes!
(A peek inside, Brian bought me those hedgehogs in there!)
My Instax Mini! I really shouldn't have gone ahead and splurged on one but I couldn't help myself... I absolutely adore it, I wish I had unlimited film packs!
Wonderful things (purse, cardigan and headband!) from Urban Outfitters. Honestly I think I could purchase their entire store right now. Holy cow I had to resist so hard by only buying things I was set on getting from there! Believe you me that I will be stalking their stuff for sales!
and my sleepy baby <3
Cross your fingers for nice weather this week as I am itching to do an outfit post (It's been sooo long). I am really excited!
Sometimes it's so hard to wonder how to start these posts, since I have so much- yet so little to say. I guess for starters it's extremely hard to do this whole blog thing single handedly. Brian commutes to go to school so I rarely get to see him during the week. I don't own a tripod or anything so it's super hard to take outfit pictures without him. Honestly he is such a crucial piece of my blog! It's been so incredibly cold out today all I wanted to wear was something cute and cozy, so behold my lazy day couture in the form of an awful mirror picture:
On Friday I also got my other thigh tattooed! If you don't remember, I got deer on my one thigh which you can see here! I wanted to have a cohesive forest family theme and I think my artist did an awesome job!
I think that I am going to beg beg beg Brian to take some outfit pictures at some point this week, even if we have to try an indoors setup. Or maybe I just need to buy a tripod. Anyways, I'm glad to be back even if things are a little out of whack in my outfit posts for a while!
Oh and by the way, this song has been stuck in my head all day. I highly suggest that if you have never heard it before (how is that possible?!) to put this on repeat. You can thank me later...
!!! I am so excited! I absolutely adore Emily Martin's work. I really hope to get a print some day soon (Oh and a few packs of her lovely recipe cards.) If you've never seen her stuff, seriously go check it out here! Well, I am off to my night photography class, and I already think I am in love. I am developing my first roll of film tonight, and if we also make our contact sheets tonight I'll be sure to show you ASAP! I'm hoping all the pictures came out amazing!
Hi guys! It's been incredibly snowy here in New Jersey. Like RIDICULOUSLY snowy ha. I've felt super inspired since I decided to start my blog back up to get back into wearing nice clothes almost everyday again. (Let me tell you the whole yoga pants hoodie thing gets to be SUPER addicting when you don't have anywhere to be or anything to do!!) I'm really excited for what I have in store but I figured that I would kind of recap you guys (in a very condensed way) or generally what I've been up to over my bit of a break!
Photographing Adorable Kittens
My friend found some super little kittens in her barn and asked me to help her take pictures of them to find them homes. Ugh Brian and I wanted one SO bad!!
Dressing Up My Kitty
Poor baby Tum Tums was subjected to multiple fashion statements.. but I think she looks way too cute!
I tooks a winterim course (ugh I know) so that Brian and I can move in the summer! I did an independent study on portraiture and I was really excited about the results. I also did some watercolors of my mom and Brian but I don't have pictures of those sooo, he is one of my pretty friend and my brother.
Getting My First Doll
Well not my first, but my first really nice expensive one. To be honest I never really liked dolls, but when I was randomly flipping through my dad's entertainment earth catalog I saw her. And I knew I had to have her in all of her folk tale foresty goodness! She is a Pullip Dal Dotori!
Acquiring Lots of Pretty Dresses!
I don't think this post would be complete if I didn't include a little snippet of some of the treasures I got while on my break! (And yes! That red lace dress is the one I lusted over here!)
Getting a Macbook!
...and spending way too much time playing World of Warcraft on it with Brian. Ha I admit, I am totally addicted to that game and all the cute things in it you would never expect (like my little fawn pet :o.) On another note, I am so pumped about my macbook, I had to get a white one and I buffed up my RAM and now it is the best thing ever. I am so excited to be blogging from it! (PS, look how cute my baby animals are. Ah always in the middle of everything!)
And Spending Way Too Much Time with These Two!
Brian and my kitty. Ah my favorite things in the world!
I really appreciate all the kind comments about my coming back to the blogging world. You are all so kind and wonderfully, seriously. If anyone has anything they would like to tell me, ask me, or just plain talk please e-mail me at
I promise I will be checking it once again!
