My Little Slice of Heaven

Friday, November 21, 2014 / , ,















Welcome to my bedroom. This is where clutter accumulates and turns into a museum of sorts. As you can see, I own a lot of stuff... too much, but I just cannot bear to part with any of it. One of my favorite things is buying something new for my room: a decorative pillow, a deliciously scented candle, or a postcard to add to my wall. This, however, is what makes a room yours. This is what sets apart your room from others. I believe that my room is never complete, it could always use a little something; this makes my room forever changing and growing alongside me. I have changed my bedspread numerous times... it is amazing what just that alone can do to your room, my office chair is now a vibrant blue whereas before it was a dull brown, and I am always updating my magazine wall with new inspiration. This is where turning "a house into a home" saying comes into play. Oh, and did I mention my adorable dog named Jax? Need I say more?

Take a little bit of my room with you...

Wanderlust

Wednesday, November 19, 2014 / , , ,




I have always had a serious case of wanderlust, but right now it is at an all time peak. Living in an urban part of Arizona doesn't allow for much nature, nor much diversity, so I am now desperate for a new view. I need pines and mountains and mud on the soles of my shoes. I need a backpack over my shoulders and a canteen strapped to my hip. I need to go fishing in a lake and climb to the top of the mountain and look out over my accomplishment. I need to nap on the cool grass and pick a bouquet of flowers. I need to braid those flowers into my hair and press them into my journal. I need to smell the fresh air and let it fill my lungs and brush my hair. I need to escape from my everyday life and join nature where the only noise at night are the crickets chirping. Join me.

Blooming at Dusk

There is one thing that I always forget: I have the rest of my life ahead of me. I know I am just making an assumption, but I feel that most of us may have this same problem. 

Now, I don't know if this means anything to you, but I am a Capricorn. Translation: a workaholic. I am constantly working on something. Whether I am actually at work, either being Free People or Klury.com, or I am working on my blog, or at a photoshoot; I am constantly in motion. Sometimes it is hard for me to switch out of work mode and into relax mode, but I think I am getting better at. Does anyone else have this problem?

So something we need to remember: we have the rest of our lives ahead of us. No matter what age you are, you are never too old or too young to do anything that inspires you. I am only nineteen, but I am completely in love with my life. I know that sometimes I forget that. Sometimes I feel that I am behind in life, or not as good or successful as I should be. I compare myself to those that have been doing what I'm doing for longer and then realize, I am right where I need to be. I still have time to grow, as does everybody. 

A huge inspiration for me are my parents. They both realized later on in their life that they wanted more for themselves. My mother went back to college as an adult and left the food industry to become a teacher and absolutely loves what she is doing. She even went back years later to complete her Masters program. My dad a few years ago went back to college, too. He graduated in May with his degree in interior design. He has now moved to New York not even a month ago in pursuit of something new. Both of my parents have taught me to follow my dreams and are proof that no matter how old you are, you can still accomplish something new. You can still pursue your dreams. 

They remind me that I have time to accomplish my goals. I have been working so hard to accomplish them all now, that I haven't had the time to really appreciate and enjoy each goal I have reached. Just because all of your dreams don't come true the minute you start working for them, doesn't mean that they won't eventually. So now, while I have the chance, I am going to appreciate what I have accomplished and look forward to what I will accomplish in the future.

So I have this odd obsession with trash TV. I am completely addicted to watching horrible TV shows for eight hours everyday and finishing every season of the show in just one month. It all started with watching all six seasons of Gossip Girl, then I moved on to Desperate Housewives which was my absolute favorite, next was the first four seasons of Pretty Little Liars, and now I am watching The Vampire Diaries. All are complete trash, yet all too entertaining. The drama, the scandal, the death, the secrets. I love it all a little too much. 
I am not only watching trash, but I also have watched the first two seasons of Orange is The New Black, American Horror Story, started The Walking Dead, and just recently started Sons of Anarchy. 
What are some of your guilty TV pleasures? What are some shows you find to be completely riveting?

Bare

Wednesday, November 12, 2014 / , , ,








I wish it was coat weather in Arizona, but sadly you can barely wear a sweater here right now.  In the morning I wake up to cold air and wanting to bundle up in ten blankets, but by one I am peeling off those blankets and slipping into some denim shorts. It is absolutely impossible to get dressed in the morning, and find something to keep me warm in the morning and cool in the afternoon. This results in me wearing a variation of the same outfit everyday or having an outfit change midday. Either way, this weather is a pain.

Goodnight Moon

Monday, November 10, 2014 / , , ,






I consider myself to be extremely lucky. I am able to attend college, I am in a healthy relationship, I have a great group of friends, and my business ventures are much more successful than I could ever have dreamed. My life is crazy to say the least and full of chaos, but it all seems to work well for me. I feel very fortunate for all that I have and for my dedication to a job at hand. You may know that I started working for Free People as a stylist in a local store this past weekend. Sunday was my official first day and went really well. I decided to apply for the position in October, because: A) I love Free People, B) A college student could always use a little extra cash, and C) I really needed some sense of normalcy in my life. I needed something to keep me grounded, because, like I said, I am extremely lucky to have all of my opportunities and at age nineteen I needed an environment where I could feel like an average college student! I am so very excited for the holiday season in the store and meeting all of the girls that I work with and who come into the store.
Happy Monday.
