Golden State of Mind


Shirt: Bohemia, Ribbon: Found around the house, 
Shorts:Target, Shoes: Thrifted


The Pac Sun “Golden state of Mind” campaign shows a peak at the ultimate summer.

Summertime is here or just around the corner for some!! Time for cucumbers, watermelons, salads, and fruity drinks. Most importantly though, it is time for dresses, skirts, and OF COURSE BIKINIS!!!! So be ready to dive into the ocean blue and don’t be afraid to look like a beachy babe aka look bohemian.  Sleeping in every day and staying up late every night. Long days full of endless sun. Summer is the time  to be a brave heart. Live with the yolo (you only live once), attitude this summer and dare yourself to do something you have never done before that is exciting and fun. This is the definition of summer. So live it up to its fullest and live in every moment!

Being Futuristic


Dress: Kohl’s,Peacock Necklace: Pier 1
Polka Dot Sweater: Target, 
Belt: Forever 21

The future can often seem so far away yet so scary. We lay awake in bed thinking about what our lives will be like in years to come. Chase after your dreams while you still can or else you will later regret it. Be confident that your future will be everything you ever hoped for and is a life that you have longed for. You have the chance to chase after your dreams,, so why not try?

Count Your Blessings

Shirt: Bohemia (a boutique in LA),Leggings:Target,Skirt: Forever 21
Leather Jacket: Goodwill,Moccasins: TJ Maxx
Earrings: Forever 21




I went to a very wealthy person’s house last night  and I automatically compared myself to them. I thought  “Why can’t I have parties like this?” But it is very important to count your blessings. Take into account all the things that you do already have and be glad that you have it. This will teach you to appreciate all the good things in life; which can taken for granted.

Sunset



Sweater: H&M Skirt: Thrifted, Bracelets: A gift, Earrings: Target

The new texting acronym that came out is yolo; meaning you only live once. I have never used this phrase, but the more I think about it, the more it resonates with me. You only live once so why not do everything you want to do? Fly to Paris if you never been there, wear orange if you have never done that, chase the dreams that you have been fantasizing about as long as you can remember. It’s okay to be daring, because after all we only have one life to live, so why not make the most of it while we still can? As Seventeen Magazine says “What if you squashed that annoying voice in your head and, instead, just went for it? What if you pushed aside the ‘What if I fail?’ mentality and told yourself that even if you don’t nail something the first time you try it…or even at all…at least you’ve got the guts to know you tried. Whether you’re going for that huge dream that you always had or taking baby steps out of your comfort zone, use this summer to live your life at its fullest. The big secret is that it only takes a second to decide that you don’t care what other people think, that you’re stronger than  a little rejection, that you’ll vow to succeed at all costs” (149). (June 2012 issue)
So why not go for it?


This Selena Gomez video shows us the Yolo attitude, so I thought it would be a nice treat!

Making It Through The Rain



Cowboy Rain Boots: A gift to me, Shirt: Anthropologie

When you get your heart broken, you feel like you want have a time-out from the world or if you were a turtle, you would want to hide in your shell for a little while. I know that right now you feel so fragile like a glass doll; one blow and you shatter. But it is very important to make that first step to go out into the world. You may not realize that you have people around you that care for you and that love you. These people will want to help you in any way they can, if they truly love you. You also need to know that it is okay to open up to people and be vulnerable with them because that is what friends are for. You may feel like what you are sharing is repetitive, but that’s okay. You need to vent it out and your friends will need to understand that. It is going to take time to heal, but I know you can. If your ex wants to be friends after you guys break up, you can do that, but only when you are feeling ready. As for getting back together, really think about whether or not you would be living in the past and whether or not it’s worth it.  It’s okay to wallow, feel angry, or analyze. In fact, you will probably go through all those emotions and that is totally normal. Don’t forget that you have people that love you though and you can share this with them. They will listen, I promise. I made a poem which is actually a combination of songs that explains that it is okay and it will heal in time:
You don’t deserve my tears,
I guess that’s why they ain’t there,
It’s alright, it’s okay
It’s going to hurt when it heals too.
It’ll all get better in time.
I’m going to smile because I deserve to.
Since there is no more you and me, I going to let you go so I can be free.
Also, Mariah Carey’s song gives you a good picture of how to make it through the rain when you are distraught.
I put the lyrics video up because I really want the lyrics to sink in. This song is by Leona Lewis that explains that it will heal with time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSxyffSB7wA&ob=av2n

Relax, Refresh, and Rejuvenate



Shirt: H and M, Skirt: Thrifted,Vest: Pac Sun, Belt: Forever 21,
Shoes: H and M

Hello my dears,
It is important that you take time out of our week for yourself. That is when you can think clearly and you can relax your mind and rejuvenate your soul. What really helps me is to everything down in my journal. Sometimes I’m a little scared of what I will unveil from reading my own words on the page, but I would encourage you to try. It helps you to vent what you’re feeling and organize your thoughts. I often think of my brain as a computer: you have all these windows open and you can minimize or close them; you don’t have to have them all open at once. Often in the stress of everyday life we have too many things overwhelming us. You have the power to put that stress away for awhile and have some time to yourself. Taking some time for yourself really gives a fresh point of view on what’s going in your life.

Blossoming Friendships


Dress: Forever 21, Vest thing: Pac Sun, 
 Bracelets: They were given to me
Shoes: Target


Hey Guys,
Who you choose to be your friend is really important. I mean okay this is probably cliché, and you have heard it since you  were in elementary school, but you really have to know what you value in a friendship. The normal one is that you want someone who is trustworthy who you’ll know will keep your secrets and someone who listens, because listening is very important in a friendship. Letting them know that they can be vulnerable with you also lets them know that that you are there to listen. True friends will be there for you through thick and thin. True friends will last you a lifetime.
