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.

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

Always striving

Hi everyone! Happy April! I can’t believe it is already April! It’s gonna be an amazing month, since today is the first day of my new term!

It has been quite interesting this year, I’ve tried time and time again to reach my goals and I am reminded that rewards do not come easy, so I have to truly realize how much I want something and go after it.

This college degree has been kicking my butt since 2015, but I will not give up. All the nights filled with emotions will lead me to a better future, even if it takes longer than 4 years. I know some may think I am wasting my time, but it will be worth it when I am doing what I love for the rest of my life. As I move forward in my education, I’ve been faced with reevaluating what exactly that is.

Do I love history or fashion more? The safe option is history, where I can work in museums to help design them and appropriately try and represent different cultures from around the world. I already know so much history, it’s engraved in my mind from high school. It gives me such an amazing feeling to know I am learning about those before me and what their lives were like.

Fashion is my one true love. Since I discovered weworewhat I loved the idea of working in fashion, especially if that meant I could share my personal style and make a living that way. Fast forward 5 years after making this blog, and I am no where close to that goal, but here I am, still thinking about the day I can finally write a sponsored post. I understand that might never happen, so I focus on something that is a sure thing, such as a history degree.

Well , thank you for reading my thoughts. Let me know any suggestions you may have on my career goals.

What a term

Hi everyone! Hope your Monday is going great and you’re having fun so far this week. I haven’t posted in about a week since I just had a final about an hour ago.

This weekend was me studying for this exams, barely going on Instagram or my blog, but checking Twitter more than I care to admit. I wanted to share with you guys an outfit I wore a couple of weeks ago.

I often take outfit pictures daily to have more than one post planned out, with at least the visuals selected. I take a lot of pictures in different areas, to give my Instagram feed variety and show off my lovely surroundings. This I took in my backyard, where my dad is currently building a lounge like area where all my family can come when we went to spend time together.

I will admit, I should have moved the chair out to the side, but there are so many imperfections in my backgrounds that I just figured I would keep it, even if no one clicks like if I post one of these on Instagram. I’ve always kept things in my pictures that made it more real, not everything perfectly placed because I am such a messy person and I am not creative when it comes to things like flatlays.

These pictures vary from the jacket I have on to what I have in my hands. I love bananas, and one of my favorite artists (aminé) uses them as a prop to his music, and I love that idea so I tried to incorporate them in my look, maybe it worked. What do you think?

Have a good day, and I’ll go back to studying for my last final tommorrow.

Let me know what quirky props you’ve used in flatlays or outfit photos in the comments below ❤️IMG_3370IMG_3398IMG_3411IMG_3259IMG_3270
