Body Image and Blogging

I've been having a weird relationship with my body lately. This isn't the first time as I'm sure most (if not everyone!) can relate to my sentiments.

Trying out Eco-friendly Shampoo / Maple Holistics Review


I mentioned in a previous post about how I'm trying to go eco-friendly with my skincare. Well, I am also trying to do the same with my haircare! So, when Maple Holistics reached out to me I knew I had to try out their products.

Not Quite Fall




I thought about explaining where I've been the past few weeks or just writing about my clothes. But writing something a little lighthearted today sounded perfect! 

While I'm writing this post it is a toasty 80-something degrees outside (26ish c). What is going on in the world?? This past week I actually switched over my closet from summer to fall, which I'm regretting now. I'm just staring at my closet longing for the moment I can wear a sweater and not want to die of heat stroke! I remember doing the same thing last year around this time and you think I would have learned by now. I just have a lot of fall pieces I can't wait to style. Is that so much to ask for in October? 





 But I thought it'd be a good time to show off one of my favorite dresses in my collection right now. I've actually had this dress for almost a year but haven't shown it on the blog! It has no tag so I just tried it on with a whim and I so glad I did! It's one of my favorites for work. I would probably wear it once a week if I could.

My shoes are a recent fall purchase as I was in desperate need of a new black bootie! I, luckily, found these in the children's section of Target! Can you believe it? I have a feeling you'll be seeing them a lot in the next few months (if it ever cools down....). 

Dress: Thrifted
Hat: Gift
Shoes: Target

Does it feel like fall where you are?

Birchbox vs. Sephora PLAY! / Video





I've noticed two things recently. 
1. I have been putting out a lot of video content 
2. A lot of my content has not been style related.

I can explain why. When I started editing my vlog of Canada (I've been working on it for months!) I realized how much I LOVE making videos. I like every aspect of it. I love filming and editing so why not keep exploring this passion? I'm currently working on an "alternative" apartment tour of sorts. I'm excited to see how it turns out. 

Another reason I haven't had much fashion content lately is due to some health problems I've been having lately. Normally I'd go out and shoot my outfits on the weekends really early in the morning but I've been spending my weekends resting as much as possible. I am hoping the fatigue will be gone soon as I love fall fashion and want to show you guys what I've been wearing! 

Anyways, do you subscribe to any beauty boxes?

Montreal and Quebec City / Video!





This week escaped me somehow. But I have a new video up on my youtube channel! I finally got around to editing my footage from Montreal and Quebec City!

End of Summer Thrift Haul! / Video




I'm so excited because I'm back with a new thrift haul! This is kind of an end of summer thrift haul but with lots of fall pieces thrown in. I've been thrifting a crazy amount recently (mostly building up my own wardrobe as a lot of my clothes don't fit and building back up my online shops!)

 I've filmed a lot of videos this past weekend so get pumped for videos every week from me going forward!

Let me know which your favorite piece was in the comments!

Off the Shoulder



I never thought I could pull off the off-the-shoulder trend that's been circling the blogosphere for the past year or so. In fact, I feel like every girl around my age (and younger) I see walking around these days has it on! So, I haven't been brave enough to try it out until recently. My mom got me this shirt for my birthday and surprisingly - I LOVE IT! It's comfortable and really easy to wear with jeans, which has been a go-to of mine for a while now.

 I'm also shocked by how much I like the frilled sleeves but I think it's a really cute detail. I find a lot of the tops nowadays are just too over the top for me! Too much sleeve, too much frill. But this one is perfect. 




In other news, I am SO excited for the long weekend! I need one that's for sure. A friend of mine is coming to visit on Saturday, which I am really looking forward to. Other than that I don't have any plans, which honestly I am so pumped about. I should get some blog posts/videos done and up for you guys as well! 

The weather has been freakishly cool as well so hopefully I'll do some hiking/exploring. 


Shirt: gift 
Jeans, Necklace: Thrifted
Shioes: Kohls

Do you have any plans for the long weekend?

Do I look ridiculous?






I've been trying to get this post out since Monday. I'm not sure what happened but I just couldn't do it. 

This outfit post was supposed to be simple. Me in a maxi dress (which I NEVER wear) and some simple sandals. But then I decided to show you guys these sunglasses my friend gave me a long time ago. And they instantly made this outfit SUPER GLAM! I mean, really. I feel a little ridiculous even posting these.  

I wear regular glasses normally so I can't actually wear these sunglasses in my daily life or I can't see! But they are actual ray-ban sunglasses so I feel pretty special owning them now even if I can't wear them on the regular. ha! I also don't know how regularly I'll wear this dress. I love it for the hot weather we're having right now but I just don't know if I can pull off the maxi dress style. What do you think?  



I miss writing for this blog because I definitely used to be more daring with my sartorial choices. 

I have a post coming up explaining where I've been because I realized how little I've posted here. It's not just that my social life is crazy (which it is) or my job is busy. Although, I did get a kitten!! 

 I did film a few videos this weekend so be on the lookout for this soon!! I'm excited to get back into filming. I actually am working on some side videography projects for some friends of mine soon (I hope), which I am really excited about.  


Dress: Thrifted

Should I keep trying to wear maxi dresses?

What to wear in 100+ degrees




I was hoping we would escape the boiling 100+ degree heat (37 c) this year but alas... we didn't. This past week has been pretty brutal. So, this dress is pretty much the only thing I want to wear! It's flowy, comfortable, and pretty thin. Perfect for this time of year (hell let's be real here). 

I mentioned in my last post that I did quite a lot of thrifting a few weekends ago. This dress was one of my finds and I love it. It was actually in the shirt section of goodwill so I got it for only $3.50! What a steal considering it's an Alice x UO (urban outfitters) collaboration! This was a piece I considered selling but it's just so comfy! 



To beat the heat,  I woke up pretty early on Saturday morning and shot these by my apartment complex. I think I've finally found my groove with blogging again. 1 - 2 posts a week is so much more manageable and better for my crazy schedule right now! Starting in August, I'll be taking a sign language class at the local university here and I am so excited! I'm taking a casual one right now but I really like it so I'm going to continue learning. 

I also added a new addition to my household so you'll have to wait and hear about that one... but let's just say she is cute and fluffy!! I actually have a lot of exciting content coming your way in the next few weeks. Hooray for feeling inspired again! But anyways... 


Dress: Thrifted (very similar)
Shoes: Converse 

What do you like to wear in this heat?

Blending In


I know I've mentioned it a few times on here but I used to sell a lot of used clothing online. I mean, a lot. And thanks to my friend, Lauren, I've gotten back into it. She's starting up an instagram shop and it really made me want to get back into thrifting! It makes me really happy to get back into something I truely loved all of last year. 

So, I went a little crazy this past weekend. But that just means that I'll be filming a thrift haul this week! I'm also thinking about filming my Sephora PLAY box unboxing. Would anyone be interested in that? 













But the reason I bring this up is that I'm thinking about selling the dress I'm wearing. 

I find it a bit uncomfortable to wear in the blazing Arkansas humidity. But the print is so lovely! I picked it up while I was in Montreal but it just not breathable! But that might be better for someone who lives in a slightly cooler climate. 



I also think this will be the last time I'll be wearing these slip-ons. They are falling apart, which makes me so sad. Actually, most of my shoes these days are falling apart -- literally! The soles are coming off, they've got holes in them, or I've just worn them entirely too much. 

My sweater was a hand-me-down from my Aunt in Georgia. It's actually a j.crew cardigan and I've gotten a surprising amount of wear out of it!


Dress: H&M
