Hey there, nice to meet you! I'm 26, engaged, and live in the Midwest. I love good books, bright lipstick, and spending ridiculous amounts of time on Instagram and Pinterest. Let's be friends!

Say you'll be there

Yeah, so I'm shamelessly rockin out to the Spice Girls right now....they never fail to put me in a great mood! What's your happy music?

Had an ok day. Didn't go to class or work due to a stomach bug (blah) but I'm feeling much better. I spent most of the day in my bed, watching Unsolved Mysteries (yeah, yeah, I'm a geek!) and reading the newest issue of Glamour in between naps.

Gotta work in the morning, so I'll be heading to bed here shortly...but not before I finish my playlist of the earlier mentioned group's greatest hits! ;)

Breathe in me

I got the whole identity theft thing under control, so that's a relief.

Today we watched videos in swing dance class. The videos looked like they were going on fast forward, that's how fast the people were dancing....pretty sure I would fall on my face if I tried that...ridiculous!!

I took a 2 hour nap after Justin left for work, then got up and read my new VenusZine. I decided to wear my hot pink creepers when I went to Jimmy Johns for dinner...aren't they epic?!


Went for a drive with the windows down because it was so nice outside, then came back and read some more and danced around my room to some fun music...not a bad way to end the day!

How in the world?

So I'm totally stressed right now. Somebody stole my debit card information and has been using it to buy things at a Walmart in Ohio.....yeah, Ohio, where I've never been in my life. My account is blocked now thankfully, but I've yet to find out how much damage has been done. This sucks.

I worked 9-5 today and then had to drive 45 minutes to meet up with my mom so she could lend me some money, since I don't have access to my bank account right now. I'm so tired right now...I'm not moving from this couch for the rest of the night....except to go to bed.

Out with the old

Just went on a mass deleting spree on Facebook. Got rid of people I never talk to, ex-boyfriends, randoms from high school, etc. I'm down to 70-ish people now but whatever....quality over quantity any day.

I've been thinking a lot lately about how people have come in and out of my life. It's strange to think how I used to be so close to someone and now we never talk....or someone I just met within the past year who has become a great friend.

On one hand it's sad that most friendships don't go beyond certain stages of life, but maybe that's how it's supposed to be...different people for different times, with the select few that go from one stage to the next.

Or maybe I just haven't met that many people I've truly connected with yet. I always felt out of place in high school. College has been a little better, but I still feel like the odd one out most of the time. Idk, it'd just be nice to get past all the superficiality and crap and just have real conversations with people more often. I mean, I know people and they know me....but do we REALLY know each other, or do we know just fragments?

Anywho, this train of thought could probably go on awhile longer but I have 8am class and need to go to bed now!

I'm your biggest fan, I'll follow you until you love me

SO! I've decided to start writing again!

I got two sweet new pairs of shoes over the weekend. Some black faux-croc heels and some neon pink creepers. Pics as soon as I get around to it, or I wear them :D

I somehow got myself addicted to that Life nature show on the Discovery channel. I watched it for like 4 hours straight yesterday. It was amazing how they showed the animals so close up and the time-lapse photography of the plants growing.

Today I had a critique for the makeup shelter I made for my 3D class. We didn't really talk about mine specifically, but I think I did pretty well regardless.

Only 2 more days until I go to the dermatologist to FINALLY find out what's been wrong with my hands for the past 4 months. I hope they'll be able to help me; it's really aggravating to have hands that are constantly broken out in a weird rash.

Just hangin out with the roomies's kinda nice to sit around talking, since usually we're all off doing our own things.

What do tigers dream of?

Watching The Hangover with Stacie and Mason....I never get tired of this movie, I swear!

Nothing out of the ordinary today...class as usual...didn't have swing dance though, so I had a little more free time....woot woot!

I think maybe I'm gonna start writing on here only when something exciting happens or I have something to share.

Yep, sounds like a plan.

I wanna grab you by the hair and drag you to the devil

Wearing my snazzy new denim you can see here!


Also made a random mobile in class today when, once again, I ran out of materials for what I was supposed to be doing.


Oh! and I went thrifting yesterday and you'll never guess what I found!


Yeah, it's the original book in all of its 80s splendor...being the vintage beauty addict that I am, I snapped it up and have been trying to figure out what 'season' I am ever I sent a picture of the book to my mom and all she did was laugh.

Tim and Eric is the weirdest show ever

I can't even follow what they're talking about....balancing a pumpkin on their heads or something. And some guys in wigs pretending to be middle aged women. Okaaaaay....

I went to TJ Maxx today and got two new dresses. One is light pink with a crocheted top and the other is denim with buttons and overall straps...they're both so cute, I'm not sure which one to wear first. But when I do, there will be pictures!

Too tired to think of a witty title

I worked noon to close today and let me just say, it was busy. But I won't get into that, because the fun part of the weekend is now here. Aka the part where I sit around and don't do much of anything.

I got a tablecloth to embroider for my mom for Mother's Day. I haven't started on it yet, maybe I will tomorrow? I would now, but I'm afraid my sleepiness would cause me many accidental stabbings with the sewing needle, and nobody wants that...mainly me.

One of the blogs I read every day belongs to a woman named Miss Banshee and it says that her kitty Stewie died today :( I feel so bad for her...I don't even know her in real life and I almost cried when I read the news. RIP Stewie, I'll miss reading your little blog entries.

Repeat after me: I am free

I guess the biggest deal of the day is that I FINALLY decorated my room how I've wanted to for awhile. I've been keeping pages of fashion/artsy stuff from magazines for who knows how long 2 folders full. One is actual articles to read (and re-read as the mood strikes) and the other is clippings for collages or whatever.


^ My closet with all the new pictures hung around it. I assure you that my room looks much better in real don't do it justice!


^ The cover of my sketchbook


^ The bracelet I made out of an old tape roll, ribbon, and googly eyes. This is what happens when I run out of materials during 3D class!


^ And just for fun, an outfit picture so you can see what I've been wearing all day! It's a blue checkered dress with a cream colored sweater. I have gray leggings on too, but you can't see them here.

Who's a slacker?!

Yeah, it's me. Sorry I went all MIA on here for busy with school stuff, yet again. But now I'm back!

Today was an alright day. Got woken up at 3:45am by a thunderstorm....lots of thunder and rain was pelting against the windows. Finally fell back asleep til 7. Failed an art history test because I suck at memorizing slides...but what else is new. Got a new book to cheer myself up. It's called 1000 Artist Journal Pages and it's AMAZING! I could sit and stare at the pictures in it all day long and not get bored. It makes me feel more creative when I look at it too, which is always a plus if you ask me!

Erm, yeah...I don't really have much else to say....other than I'm getting tired and can hear the wind howling outside and it's kinda freaky. Yep that's all.
