2018 in pictures

Today is the last day of 2018. This year has been such an important one in my life. I realized that my plans were going to be achieved later than expected, allowing me to truly think about my next steps.

This is my fourth year in college, and I am no where near graduating. Accepting that fact has been hard, but I know that taking more one is not a bad thing. It took me a while to pass classes like math and science, but I did it!

And after years of secretly wanting to learn how to drive, but always being scared to attempt any action towards it, I got my license, and yesterday was 2 months of having it. These 2 months have been fun, and have challenged me to think clearly to make sure I am being as safe as possible.

This year, I took a break from my blog. I’ve been thinking about what this blog means to me, and sometimes it feels like time to say goodbye. Not to delete it, but to keep it as a memory when I need inspiration, or to look back to remind myself of what I can accomplish.

Lately I’ve been interested in making YouTube videos, and have been taking videos when I go shopping with friends. Maybe 2019 will become the year I attempt to be a youtuber..

The following pictures are ones I took throughout the year but never blogged about. Some were from months ago, others as recently as this week, the one with the fanny pack being from Christmas Day.

Let me know what outfits you like, as well as what you accomplished in 2018.

See you in 2019.

We turned 22

Hello everyone, thank you for reading this special post.

Since I’ve been on a bit of a break from blogging, I am here to share my birthday plans.

Turning 22 wasn’t as exciting as the way I spent celebrating the birthday before this but it was still beautiful.

My twin and I went to breakfast with friends, and were treated to such a wonderful meal.

As I get older I realize the days of family planning the day around you even in your birthday are rare.

Everyone is so busy with their lives, it seems like any other day. I don’t like having a lot of attention, but this was always something I looked forward to.

I was also able to finally wear the navy blazer I had bought at a thrift store, and finally wore the jeans I bought at free people.

However, because it was our birthday I was able to coerce my twin into taking pictures with me, and am so happy with how they turned out.

I was happy that we were able to do something, and when we got home our mom was making our favorite meal, which was really exciting.

As time goes on, I don’t wish for material things, the presence of my friends and family is more than enough.

Here’s to a great year of being 22!

Sweet

I celebrated my friend’s 21st birthday with her last month. We were all so busy so this was the only time we could do it even thought her birthday was in January. We went to her favorite restaurant which is a really good pizzeria right next to target.

The moment my friend saw me she complimented me on my outfit, which I really appreciated. I usually never wear just tank tops but this cropped sweater felt really warm and looked even better with the black tank top. I finished it off with my go to black jeans and the vans my mom bought me and are a size to big. I went for a simple makeup look, wanting to just keep both my outfit and makeup casual.

My friend and I hung out after the dinner and of course we ended up at target. I was really excited to hangout with al my friends since school and work has kept us all extremely busy. She and I aimlessly walked around target trying to find some things for her to buy for her nephew, and I ended up in one of my favorite aisles: the ice cream one. This is nothing new, since we would often go on snack runs at random hours of the night when we lived in the same hall.

Some things just never change, and I’m happy I have someone to walk around Target at random hours.

Classic 

I love simple outfits. Outfits that make sense, that are both comfortable yet make me feel beautiful. This outfit makes me feel more girly than usual, and I was happy to wear my favorite color, bright red. 

I bought this oversized adidas tee and skirt when I was shopping with my girls. I’ve gotten more and more into the adidas brand, going to the adidas store and buying workout clothes as well. 

This to me is so classic, especially the black button up skirt, also a must have (in my opinion) that I’m happy to add to my closet ❤️ 

My twin and I (yeah I have one) spent my day off taking pictures in the downtown area of our hometown, and we kept finding places we’d never seen before. Funny how even thought I’ve been living in a place for my whole life I still feel like a tourist from time to time. 

Here is one of my classic outfits that I can’t wait to wear differently (this shirt can be a tshirt dress and this skirt can go with so many different tops) throughout the rest than of the summer. 
What outfits are you excited to wear? Let me know 😊

Family day 

I had a day off from work so I went with my mom to run errands. Those usually consist of going to the Mexican store to buy meat and vegetables. As we were leaving we had to stop by the store a few doors down to buy bread. We noticed that they had fruit cups, consisting of chamoy, which is a sauce put on fruits such as mango. 

As we walked to the car, my younger brother took endless picture of us, and I liked how they came out. They were a representation of my relationship with my mom, always laughing and joking around. I was also really excited to finally wear this shirt I bought at pacsun, (thank you buy one get one free ☺️) since it’s see through I wore a bralette from target. This has been one of my favorite outfits, because I feel more and more comfortable with my body. I’ve gained a bit of weight in my stomach, and that’s fine. It’s weird not having a flat stomach, but all I wanna focus on is being happy and healthy.
