Self potrait

“My thoughts are stars I could not fathom into constellations” – John Green

“I write because I do not know what I think until I read what I say” – Flannery O’Connor

“To be nobody but yourself in a world that’s doing its best to  make  you somebody else, is to fight the hardest battle you are ever going to fight. Never stop fighting.” – e.e cummins

“First, I am very fascinated by how everyone  loves each other, but nobody really likes each other ” – John green

“I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart) I am never without it (anywhere I go you go, my dear, and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling)..” – e.e cummings

DSC_0454_FotorHopefully it will stop raining so I can do get out of the house. Today I really wanted to blog but had nothing to say ha!, so I decided to try do a self-potrait.. you like?

I also binge read other blogs I like, and hadn’t had a chance to read recently. It’s so  refreshing for me to read other people’s perspective on things related to daily boring everyday life, and I also like getting inspired in terms of food, style, working out etc, some of my faves are delightfully tacky by Elizabeth, twenty seven by Michelle and Curious Natalia. I find this ladies blogs “from the heart”  and very unique and personal. It’s obviously very brave for people to share their lives with the wide world web (the good and bad) and I respect such content, despite my disagree-ability  or agree-ability. I honestly hope my blog will go into a similar direction, something someone can relate to, not just nice photos/clothes.

Stripes simplicity

6 pointI also can’t wait for this week to end, its been hellish, but I am trying to stay positive. Do you guys ever miss school/classes?, I do.. I miss learning new things and being excited to finish projects in college, and I honestly can’t wait to go back because I am really struggling to like my new work position. I don’t want to quit just because am unhappy there, I know its only temporary so I’ll give it my best and hopefully things will look up soon.

I think summer came early in the pnw and am not complaining, the weather has been gorgeous all week and I finally got to enjoy it today, even though I have become accustomed to the rainy and cloudy days. My work week has been very eventful and I couldn’t wait to get a break from all of that, and soak up on some vitamin D.

I almost never wear jeans, since I spent half of my teenage life in jeans, so I decided to double it up!, I used a red belt to pop some color since my shoes matched the denim haha, I needed comfortable shoes I could walk in.

Denim shirt: old navy// pants: HM//shoes: target

tips on a double denim look: wear a different tones of denim, don’t accessorize with more than 2 items, wear different color shoes or belt.

Do y’all (pun intended) like the other side of WA?, I felt a little “mid western/southern cowboy” I have to say. I enjoyed playing with the sunset because I never get the chance to take sunset photos, it was fun.

The GOLDFINCH!!

Hey friends!

If you can’t tell by the topic that this post is about my latest favorite book then you need to grab yourself a copy. The Goldfinch is by far one of the best books I’ve read/listened to in a while. I read at least one book a month now that I’m not in school, and I have a grown-up full-time job, meaning I don’t have as much “free” time as I used to, so I try as much as I can to sneak in a book. Most of the time I use audible to listen to books on my commute to work (about 30-45 mins), and saves me from the public humiliation of displaying my dance moves to fellow drivers on the I-5 (I can’t pass on a good song if you know what I mean 😉 ). Anyhow, if you’re a bookworm and looking for a good book, the Goldfinch will not disappoint. It is a drama that made me cry and laugh out loud alone in my car.

On other news, here’s a weekend recap: I had the best weekend with some of my girlfriends I hadn’t seen in a while, I got to see Taken 3, which was AMAZING! Here are some pics of my outfit and deets 🙂

How adorable is my Mickey Mouse shirt??
It was love at first sight, especially because I owned a similar shirt when I was a “minnie”
It’s so comfy at this time of year and to make it a little girly I added accessories.

Dress to please yourself, be playful, take life one step and a time, release the child in you once in a while, listen to your inner muse and watch life be beautiful around you”
