Pray for Baltimore

I'm in complete awe of what's happening in Baltimore right now. This is the city where I grew up and it's where all my family is. They're all safe, thank God. These idiots are destroying the city and hurting innocent people! You can't drive out violence with violence. It's just WRONG. Try to stay safe, Baltimore! Hopefully this will all be over soon.

Rainy Mood

I've talked about this site before, but I love Rainy Mood. You go on and just listen to rain falling! Am I the only person that actually enjoys cozy, rainy days?!

P.S. Did anyone watch the Bruce Jenner interview the other day? How inspirational! I teared up a little while watching certain parts.

Happy Monday!

As a little post-Earth Day tribute, here are some really pretty pictures I found by Sadie Jane Baynham! The ones of the sea are amazing. Check out her Flickr!

Move Forward

This week has sucked. It's only Wednesday, but I want it to be over. I hate saying that, because I want to enjoy everyday -- I don't want to wish days away. This week, however, my anxiety has gone through the roof. All I want to do is hide in my room and sleep out this whole week. I can't even do that though because the people in my hall are some of the mot disrespectful people I've ever met.
I hate this and I just want to go home. Lately, I've been questioning a lot of things about my life, including college. Is this even the path for me? Am I doing what I really want to do in life? Am I working towards a goal that will make me happy? I'm just not feeling happy doing what I'm doing at this point in time. I've tried so hard this year to get used to this and waited for it to get better, and while it's had it's really high ups and really low downs, I'm ultimately sad a majority of the time.
So now I pose the question: what next? Do I want to continue on this path? Or try something new?
Thanks for listening to the rant. Last night I just kind of broke down and I wanted to write all my thoughts out somewhere.

I don't want to go too in depth with it, but do any of you have anxiety? I know some people have it way worse than me and I don't want to talk like I know everything. It just gets SO annoying. I just randomly feel nervous about nothing. I'll just be sitting watching Netflix or doing classwork and I'll get the largest feeling of anxiety. It sucks!
Anyway, here's a picture of Audrey Hepburn because I wish I was as cool as her.
Hope you're all happy and healthy!

Sunday, April 19, 2015


Well, I'm feeling nostalgic again. So here's the plan for tonight:
Watch 500 Days of Summer
Scribble a few inspiring quotes in my journal
Read through old archives of some of my favorite blogs
List some things that I have on my radar for next time I go shopping
Life Is...
And maybe heat up some water for tea (even though I don't have any pretty mugs to put it in)
Have a great week, beauties.

Link Love

Only 3 weeks left of school!! Thank God!!

Have you heard of the Instagram account @IHaveThisThingWithFloors? I love it! It's so cute!

You need to get good before you get great. This commercial is so good!

This song is my current jam (take a minute to dance a little).

I love this city so much.

This looks SO GOOD.

Any other Pennsylvannians in the house?

This is one of my favorite Twitter accounts. The Office is the funniest show ever, period!

Hope you have an awesome Sunday! This week at my school we start a thing called Sti-Yu-Ka. It's really fun, but everyone's drunk the whole week. Fingers crossed I don't get super annoyed, super quick!

Missing the person you used to be

Ok, so this post is kind of deep... but I really like talking about it. I was writing about this in my journal the other day and thought others could relate.
Do you ever kind of miss the person you used to be? I like moving on and growing up and all that jazz, but sometimes just looking through past archives, finding pictures from 2011, or reading old blogs I used to read all the time just makes me miss that feeling and that person I once was. When I go through and do all that, it just makes me really want to revert back to that photographing/bicycle riding/vintage loving girl that I once was.
Is that weird?? Do you ever do that? It doesn't bring me down or anything, but it just makes me think about how weird change is. People change so much and there's no stopping it! It's a good thing how people are growing into something moving forward with their lives, but it also makes me a little sad knowing that the people and things that I once admired so much aren't the same any more.
Anyway... hope you all are good. As a bit of nostalgia to go along with this post, here are a few throwback links to a few of my favorite blog posts from other bloggers back in the day (some of these bloggers don't blog anymore, but it should be fine!):
Annie from The Other Side of Gray -- In other words, the queen of pattern mixing and big, chunky scarves! I used to come home from school everyday and immediately check her blog. I really loved how I dressed in high school and she really gave me a majority of my inspiration!
Emily from The Daily Fashionista (now Finding Beauty) -- Hmm weird how most of these are fashion blogs... but I guess that says a lot about what I like/liked! Emily is AWESOME! Her style is fantastic AND she thrifted! She's actually the person who turned me on to thrifting and most of the things that I've purchased that thrift stores were inspired by her! I would check her blog usually more than once a day just incase she posted something else, I didn't want to miss it ;) I hope she's doing really well!
Eeny from Eeny's Universe -- I actually discovered this one a little late in the game! I wish I would have found her sooner because her blog is awesome. She would do this thing called the Pizza Adventures where she would make a new pizza from scratch once a week and post it on the blog. I have yet to try to make any, but the Aloha Pizza definitely has my mouth watering!
Amanda from Here Comes the Sun -- She posted a good mix of everything from photography to outfit posts to her personal interests, and it was great! I followed along with her for a very long time! She's from New Zealand and her posts were always put together so well and just plain put a smile on my face. I miss her blog, but I follow her on Instagram!

And there are definitely WAY more, but I don't want to have you reading all day ;) Give me your thoughts on this!

Fancy pizza

Arg! I've been seeing a lot of pictures of these gourmet pizza places/pizza cafes on Tumblr lately and I love them! I want to go to one of these so badly! It's not your average, sloppy pizza place and I think that's so awesome!

I'm not really sure why I'm so obsessed with The Titanic... maybe it's not really to say I'm obsessed with it. I don't know. It was awful, don't get me wrong! I just love reading up about it and everything. And of course Titanic is one of my favorite movies, but that's more because romance, hehe!

I found this video of actual footage and it's so interesting! Check it out. I can't believe people actually dressed like this at one time... how I would love for people to dress and interact like this again:

Also, would you ever ride Titanic II? As much as I think it would be amazing, I don't think I would. I'm kind of superstitious though.
PS. They added Titanic back on Netflix again woop woop!

White: April's color of the month

I can't remember where I saw that white was April's color of the month, but it was somewhere reputable! I've been seeing so many all-white outfits lately and I really commend people who take that fashion risk. It's so stylish, but it takes guts! Here are some recent all-white outfits I've seen that I've been loving (most of them are Kardashians, sorrynotsorry):
Even celebs make mistakes - Another victim of the unflattering tracksuit is repeat fashion offender #KimKardashian. She got it almost right with her all white outfit and killer snakeskin stilettos. Next time just go with skinny pants.
Try a sleek slip dress in an icy shade off-white this summer. #streetstyle
Do you like the all-white look or not so much?

Dove Choose Beautiful

Dove has so many great films, don't they?! This one is just another that is very watch-worthy. I think it would be hard for me to choose the "beautiful" door just because I'd be nervous that I'd look like I think too highly of myself. It's great though -- I wish everyone could see how beautiful they are and not worry about how other perceive them!
You're beautiful!

Exercise? What?

I've successfully gone to the gym everyday for the past 19 days. YES! This is awesome! I definitely can tell you that the freshmen 15 is a real thing and I'm guilty of it. After Winter break is when I really started to notice it and I was just feeling really bad about myself. I tried to do small things like only drink water and I even tried MateFit, but failed terribly at it. Once I got home for Spring break I went to the little gym we have near my house and then I wanted to keep it going once I got to school and I did! I like how the school has TVs in the machines and it just feels so good to sweat everything out at the end of the day. Plus I sleep better!
So anyway, I just wanted to share. I really want to keep it going! The goal isn't necessarily to lose weight, but to just feel better about myself. Woohoo!

Hope you're all having a happy day!

I'm almost positive that I've written about this before, but it's something I like to talk about! This weekend I went to my friend's house here in Massachusetts, for Easter, and I was kind of out of my comfort zone. It was weird not being around my family and weird being with a family that I've pretty much never met before. So my question is, do you have things in your life that kind of "bring you back to center"? Like, things that you come back to that comfort you and define you? Here are a few of those things for me:
I Love Lucy
I have and always will love this show. It's on Hulu, so I can watch it whenever I feel the need. It's just a show that my entire family loves and it makes me feel so good.
My Journal
I've said this way too many times already, but I really love this journal. Anytime I have something on my mind, I go to it and write away. It's my thoughts, comforting quotes, or even just  couple words that I need to let out. I try to take it everywhere I go.
Mumford & Sons Playlist on Pandora
Not necessarily Mumford & Sons themselves, but just anything that comes up on the playlist is good. Not many of my friends here at school like this kind of music, so when I'm alone I like to just listen to and do some art or clean my room or something.

Talking to my Parents
Obviously. I squabble with them a lot, but just talking to them or just texting with my mom about interior design or something. They are the people that know me and my likes the best, so when I talk to them, I just feel completely myself.
p.s. I lied! I got my keyboard fixed today, so I'm ready to type and back in action!

My keyboard is broken so my blogging will be pretty sparse for a little bit :( right as I was getting back into it too!

Go do

Don't be freaked out! I know the title of this video is super deep and dark, but I promise it's an awesome video. I absolutely love this guy. His videos are seriously so inspirational and I feel like he's taking everything I've ever thought and actually saying it. He made the video that I post on here constantly, Stay Happy (link in the menu bar above!), and that is honestly my favorite video on the internet. Anyway, check out this video and go check out more of his stuff on his YouTube channel
Have an awesome day and go out and DO SOMETHING amazing with your life!

5 Happy Things

1. Fresh, clean sheets
Right?! I really hate making my bed, but I do love fresh sheets. Something about them just makes me sleep better at night. I washed my sheets today and I also threw in my comforter, so it's going to be a double good night.

2. Journals
I have a new found love for journals. I started a journal in August and I'm almost done filling it out! I just love having a place to write down thoughts and quotes. On a day when nothing is going right for me, I turn to my journal and feel better. And there's no better feeling than finishing a journal!

3. Survivor
I love this show! Not just because it's a great show, though. I love it because it's the show that my dad and I would watch together every week. Now since I'm at college, we'll text each other while we watch it. It's a great time to wind down and talk to my dad!

4. Sleeping
I'm calmer than most people at my school, and while I'm a night owl, I also love going to bed early most nights. Curling up in my bed and scrolling through Tumblr or watching The Office is pretty much my happy place.

my bedroom :) 

5. 1 more month of school!
I mean, duh. Who wouldn't be happy about that?! I can't wait for the warm weather and the free mind with nothing to think about. So soon!

Above the clouds

How do you feel about flying? Some people love it, some people hate it. I love it! I don't fly too much, so when I get the chance to I really take it all in. It amazes me what those planes can do and the view is breathtaking. Sitting in the middle seat is not fun, but other than that it's pretty enjoyable. ;)

It's still freezing here, but at least it's April. How is the weather where you are? I'm dreaming of wearing shorts and sandals some day soon!
