$2 Dress


Ive been pretty absent on my blog. I just haven't had the time to get ready. I work in a uniform and by the time I get home from work the last thing I want to do is get all dolled up and take photos. Then on my days off Im busy driving back and forth to my moms to do laundry, going to the post office, to the bank, grocery shopping or just flat out boring stuff. So theres no point in looking cute to do all that. The only time I "get ready" is when I work my retail 2nd job because theres no dress code there. It's nice to be able to wear whatever you want to work. Im going to try and make an effort to take more photos. I love expressing myself through style. I love clothes and outfits so I really do want to share more outfit posts. Im going to colorado in 2 weeks so i will definitely try and make my friend take outfit photos for me. Sorry, thats the price you pay for being my friend!

Body image


 I almost didn't want to post these photos because my thighs looks wide. Silly I know but then someone left me a comment saying "what hips? that's the problem with ladies who are SMALL saying they have a figure flaw cause younger ladies are watching this who do have real curves and they see themselves as huge next to a person your size." Why can't "small" people struggle with body image issues? Just because I have skinny arms and a small waist doesn't mean I can't look at myself and see things I don't like. Are only "huge" girls allowed to have flaws? Whose to say a big girl can't be more confident than me? Also why am I now a role model for "younger audience" to look up to? I didn't sign up for that. Im not someone who is a role model figure. Im just a 25 year old girl who talks to a camera, Im no Malala Yousafzai or Taylor swift. I never claim to have my shit together. Everyone has flaws so should I just ignore them because YOU don't think they're that bad? I still see them. I still struggle with them. You may think I'm small, and I am. But small people have body image issues too. Its not a size thing, its a human thing.

How to have a successful beach day


 Read a book about aliens

 Avoid a pedicure by scraping off the dead skin on your feet with razor sharp seashells

 Laugh because the most action you're getting is seaweed washing up and smacking you in the butt

Get a permanent wedgie from your swim bottoms because they insist on riding up

Soak up some sunshine while forgetting to reapply sunscreen

 Go for a walk and take photos of flowers, because you don't have 300 photos of flowers on your phone already...

 Take a photo in front of flowers because you haven't done that before...

Put on headphones so you don't have to hear the children to your right screaming in french

 Reminisce on all the times you've peed in that water

 Thats all it takes for a successful beach day!

Girl Power

Trying to find places to take photos is probably the hardest part of blogging. There are always people around. Which is fine, I just don't want them in the background of the photos. I found this abandoned house and decided that it was a good place. No one will come out and tell you to stop taking pictures on their property. Well... hopefully not. The only people who saw me were the mailman and a convertible car full of old people. All of them turned their heads and stared. Yes I am a weird girl taking photos of herself, move it along! I don't usually wear clothing that everyone else has. This shirt is that exception. I've seen this shirt everywhere and I loved so I bought it. Im someone who doesn't really pay attention to trends. I get inspiration from people on pinterest and blogs but I never want to go somewhere and end up in the same outfit as someone else. I feel like thrifting clothes give you that advantage of being different. If I match someone else while wearing this shirt I think ill be ok with it, Because its a good shirt.









Shirt- ROMWE
Jeans- Thrifted
Shoes- Converse
Coach Purse- Thrifted
Sunglasses- Free people

How About No

I figured I would share what I was wearing in my most recent youtube video. The shirt is from ROMWE. An asian website that clearly knocks off wild fox, topshop, urban outfitters, etc. But whatever its suuuuper cheap you just have to wait AGES for it to ship out. It is coming from somewhere in Asia after all. This shirt though is possibly one of the best shirts I own. It was like $7 and I just paired it with high waisted black shorts I thrifted a while ago. You can go on down to the very bottom and watch my video where I try on my latest thrift finds and show a lot of skin. Scandalous! But whatever we all have bodies, get over it. We are all just a bag of bones.

The downside to turning 26

Turning 26 means I lose my heath care. So please don't stab me after September 20th because ill probably die. Before then is completely fine though. Kidding! Please don't stab me at any point in time. Loosing my health insurance means I won't be able to afford new glasses. Also dentist, birth control, doctors visits, god for bid I get pregnant ill be screwed... but lets not get into that. It will only make me depressed. Anyways, So I've been scouring this earth for the past 3 months looking for new glasses and I've come across 0 glasses I like. Ive been to all the lenscrafers, eye doctors, costco, target, walmart. Literally anywhere that sells glasses I've looked and nothing. They are all boring and too small. So the last place I've turned to is etsy. Ive been looking at old 1980s glasses. Because who didn't do BIG glasses better than the 80s? So these are the final contenders. They are all under $100. They are exactly what I had in mind. Big, funky glasses. I've had the same glasses for  7 years. I got them in red, then later i bought the same exact frames just in black. So I am ready for a change. What do you think? Some are funkier than others but I really can't decide. Thats another thing about me I'm the WORST at making decisions. Ive learned to be a "go with the flow" kinda person because I literally can't make a decision for myself. I just let other people make decisions for me hah thats bad right? Owell.



The original red/torotise shell frames
Then the same exact ones in black
Also how cute is penny? I wish my mom would give her to me but she won't.

My colorful house

Its safe to say if something is colorful and/or weird I'm gonna buy it. Almost everything in my house was thrifted. 2 years before I moved out of my parents house I slowly bought a bunch of home things. Bowls, cups, mugs, plates, decoration, shower curtain. Literally everything I could think of I bought in preparation. My parents would say "You haven't even moved out! stop buying home crap". Whatever, it worked in my benefit because by the time I moved out I had everything I needed and my wallet thanked me for that. The furniture was basically free too so I really lucked out. I didn't have to scramble to try and fill up the house. For someone who doesn't make a lot of money Im pretty proud of this house. Its very much a reflection of my weirdness. From the big ear above my bed, the fetus soap in my bathroom, the picture of jesus holding a pizza, the multiple peewee hermans and mickey mouses, and all the flowers, and colors. It may not be the most coherent or pinteresty house, but i love it because it's unique.
