Glow

Hello!

Today’s blog post is something I’ve been meaning to share. Being busy with school and work can often lead me to a lot of different emotions, one being how I view myself in this vast world we live in.

There are moments which make me think about how I live my life, and how blessed I am to be able to even type this.

I get so caught up in social media, in being an “it” girl that has thousands of Instagram followers, people that want to know what she wears and where she gets it.

If you must know, I bought this shirt for $6 at a thrift store, the sunglasses were on sale for $10 at Pacsun, the shoes a Christmas present and the jeans were my older sisters. I don’t have name brands to share with you, the most I’ve ever worn is Tommy Hilfiger, and am okay with that right now.

I want to own and wear clothes that do not create a facade about me, but rather have a style all my own. I may never be one of the girls that pop up on the explore page on Instagram with over 1,000 likes but maybe the few that look at my outfits and my accounts get to know someone they genuinely like.

I’m tired of trying to copy the pictures I see on Tumblr, and not use the word “inspired” when I mean, “I wish I was the girl in the picture”

For all those bloggers that do have such beautiful photos and have started careers as bloggers, I am so proud of you and hope your blogs reflect how amazing you are. It’s time for me to do the same.

Sights Seen

As I end finals for spring term, I begin to realize how much I miss being on vacation in New Orleans. For my 21st birthday I spent time in NOLA, spending time in museums and cafes with amazing food.

Going to a new place reminded me of how beautiful different parts of the country are. There was so many different places that were full of amazing food, art and culture. I had never seen so many bright buldings, I loved how varied the scenery was.

I always travel to the same places with my family: California and Mexico. This was the first time I had ever flown on an airplane, and I love the feeling of it. Being on an airplane gave me time to relax, and just think about all the fun I would be having in a new place.

We had a beautiful air bnb that we rented, and we spent time cooking at night to try and save money once we realized all that we had spent at restaurants. Being away from home was exciting, everything was new and so interesting.

One of the pictures below is of beignets, which are infamous in New Orleans. We went to Café Du Monde on several occasions, including the day my twin and I turned 21.

Light shine through

Good morning everyone! Happy Monday! These last few weeks have been filled with exams, quizzes and papers. I am over half way done with this term and everything Is coming to fruition in rather quickly. I’ve been spending most of my days sitting in my room trying to study for all my classes, and ultimately picking one over the other which I have tried to get better at.

This post is something I just wanted to share when I was bored laying in bed probably just going through my phone instead of studying.

My window is a rather big in my room and the light comes through the curtain we got. I moved some things off my sisters white desk. I used my self timer to take these pictures because I wanted to have mini photo shoot in a room with the desk in with the chair we had bought.

I took some pictures of me in this dress I bought from forever 21 wearing make up I had done five minutes before to take these pictures. I love how makeup looks in the sun light, especially highlighter.

Let me know what you think of this outfit and what if you’ve done any impromptu photo shoots you’ve ended up really enjoying.

Sunny weather

Happy Thursday! I am currently working on my biology study guides that are in due in two weeks. This course is quite hard, so I have to focus and make sure I get the grade I want.

With that being said, I know that means a lot of time spent working on homework.

This outfit is one I wore after classes, when I was done with my day and wanted to spend some time with my twin. She (and the rest of my family but my older sister) are in California.

This is my version of a sunny place, and I can’t wait to be able to hangout with friends without having to stay home to study. I have taken more outfit pictures that I am quite excited about. Let me know what you think of this outfit below. Have a great day! IMG_6393IMG_6395IMG_6394IMG_6391
