High School, a place where it’s the “best years of your life” for most or for some it’s not. A place where you start “finding yourself”, again for most it is and for most it’s not. Now I’m not going to sit here and say I had the worst time ever but I didn’t have the best time either. When people ask me if I miss high school my answer is always no. I don’t miss it. I have kept this to myself for so long because I didn’t know how to put it into words and I didn’t know if people would understand. So here it goes, I was always the quiet one and honestly I didn’t have a lot of friends. You would think being a cheerleader (yes I was one lol) i’d have plenty of friends but for me that wasn’t the case. I had maybe 1 or 2 friends I would always talk to and hang out with at school. I never had that big group of friends. Thinking back to it now its crazy. I would come home and just feel sad and depressed. I would sit there and think why don’t people like me? Why am I the loner? Why don’t I have friends like my brothers? They always had a big group of friends and I envied that SO much. I never went to parties or was social. Not until my senior year, I wasn’t a cheerleader anymore so I didn’t have that. My one friend I was close to moved. I had a boyfriend this year so I had that. I would hang out with his group of friends and go to parties only because I was basically the tag along. They were never really my friends. I didn’t know who I was. I had got bullied a couple times. I never really found myself in high school I was still trying to figure that out. Once I had graduated I felt kind of a relief. I didn’t have to think about going back to that place but I was still worried, is this how my life is going to be when I get older? No friends? No, that is not the case. But I was stuck in this slump and fell into this dark place for a couple months. I didn’t end up going to college and I didn’t have a job so I felt alone. I didn’t know what I was doing with my life. Until beauty school happened. I had went to beauty school about a year after I graduated high school. I was nervous as hell. I didn’t think I would make any friends because thats how it was in high school but I was wrong. Going to beauty school was probably the best decision I had made for myself. I met some amazing people there. We were all there for the same reason so it was nice too finally talk to people who understand you. It was nice to finally have people to hang out with and they actually enjoyed your company. But as I had said I didn’t realize what I was going through back in my high school days until about a year ago. Who I was then is not who I am now. I have definitely become a better version of myself. I let go of high school friendships I had thought cared about me but I was wrong. I have the most amazing group of friends right now in my life. Whether they are co workers, my friends that have been with me through thick and thin and those who I have just become close with in the last couple years. YOU ALL KNOW WHO YOU ARE. It is so nice to have people who get you. People that are easy to talk to and I can be myself around and have a good laugh with. I don’t open myself up to a lot of people but I have found those who I can. They are all just as crazy as me and I love it lol. You live, learn and grow every single day. If you or someone you know is going through the same thing right now just know it ALWAYS gets better. I feel like I am in a good place right now, yeah I have my days but who doesn’t? We’re all human. Find your passion and do something you love because it can open so any doors. The older you get the more aware you become and the more you know what your worth and who you want in your life. Its okay to be that person who doesn’t have those high school “friends”. Make friends with people who actually care about you and enjoy your company. I don’t know if any of this had made any sense and I don’t know how many of you will understand and I didn’t make this post for anyone to feel “sorry” for me. I want people to know that you are not alone.

Omg my favorite time of the year is finally here!! Well sort of, it is still hot in California right now lol. But none the less I’m so happy! So hello October! Last year I had shared a fall fashion post and I had wanted to do the same this year. My style has changed just a tad so I wanted to share some outfit inspiration for this coming fall and what better way to show my favorite colors during this time of year lol! I’d like to say my style is very laid back and casual but I always pair an outfit with some fun booties, a hat, bag, etc. If you aren’t comfortable wearing such loud outfits toning it down with just fun accessories is the way to go, well in my opinion! I love the fashion during this time of year! I hope these gave you some fall fashion inspiration! Let me know which one was you’re favorite in the comments!

About a week ago I got the time off of work and spent my weekend in Huntington Beach, which was so relaxing. I had planned on taking a ton more pictures during this trip for this blog post but I got so caught up with enjoying my time with family, but I did get a few pictures here and there. I have never stayed out in Huntington before so it was quite the experience and omg the hotel we stayed in was absolutely BEAUTIFUL and so modern. I was very lucky.

PS. I also never bothered to do my hair all weekend so don’t mind how frizzy my hair looks in all of my pictures lol.

There was a mini winery inside of the hotel, like who has that?? Lol, we didn’t have time to go to it but I had to take a picture.

Now it takes a lot for me to post this picture of myself in my bikini on here but its all about C O N F I D E N C E people!!! So the whole weekend we were there it was overcast but of course the last day we had there it was nice and sunny lol. So my mom and I had to take advantage and lay out on the beach for a little, now just for being out in the sun for only 1 hour I got a gnarly sun burn cause Im so pale hahah. But thats okay. A much needed get away and I enjoyed every moment of it. 

Bathing suit is from Forever21 but I couldn’t find the link):

I am always posting on my Instagram and Snapchat stories so if you ever want to see the behind the scenes and some embarrassing pictures then you should follow me, the links are on the homepage!! 

 

 

 

So if you don’t already know there are some walls in LA that are very well known for taking pictures with for that perfect Instagram post, and I am one of those basic people who have done it! I mean it makes you look “cool” and “trendy”…kinda lol. Every time I go up to LA I always see TONS of people doing it. So it doesn’t really make you feel awkward which I love because I do get shy sometimes, taking a picture in public. Im not some model who knows what they’re doing while posing for a picture. Im an awkward bean haha. But it’s cool to not feel judged while going to these spots. I only share a few places I have been to but I know there are hundreds of other A R T  around in LA. I’ll share where they are too so if you ever go up there you can check it out!

The Paul Smith store aka the “Pink Wall”

This spot is located on MELROSE. I think this is the most popular one because every time I go here there is always so many people! It is actually a real store to. Very expensive but hey its LA haha. Its a pink wall I mean there really isn’t much to say about it besides the fact that its PINK and cute. 

“Made In LA” wall

Not really made in LA but again its a cool! This wall is also on MELROSE, I think its really close to the pink wall. Honestly if you just type in “Made in LA wall” on your MAPS on your phone it literally pops up which I think is so funny. This spot was a little less crowded. Even though it is a very popular spot I think people tend to forget about it but Im okay with that! Lol

The “LA WINGS”

The VERY popular LA wings. Im pretty sure these are in every part of LA. The artist Colette Miller is the one behind all of them. They are so cool and before I started taking trips to LA they were the main thing I always saw on Instagram or Tumblr. So of course I had to get my picture with one of them haha.

All White Brick wall and Leaf walls

 

 

I know it sounds silly and Im 100% positive you can find spots like this anywhere but for some reason I only take pictures in front of one of these areas when I’m in LA! Don’t ask why I know I’m weird but whatever haha. I just really like the way they look! Im very grateful to have friends that will take a day to come down to LA with me and do these kinds of things. Idk I just think its fun and if I’m getting “Instagram worthy” pictures out of it then its a win! Plus its fun to show it in a BLOG post for you guys! Hope you guys enjoyed this one!

Hello!! Yes I am back with yet another band tee little look book today. I honestly own a lot of band t-shirts and this is how I like to style them most of the time. I really get a lot of inspiration from Pinterest and then I put the outfits together with what is comfortable for me! Whether I listen to the band or not I still love to wear them, I don’t care lol. So my little brother was the one who took my pictures for this post! He did such a great job, so shout out to you Travis!! lol.  My mom is usually behind the camera, but he has taken a liking to photography so I asked him if he would take some blog pictures for me. I hope you all enjoy this Pt. 2 of my band tee style looks, I will definitely have more coming in the future! And let me know which one was your favorite!

I will try and link as many pieces as I can find, but I have had a lot of these pieces for while.

Look 1

Top// H&M

Jacket// Forever21

Pants// Forever21+

Shoes// Vans

My black jeans are definitely a staple in my wardrobe if you haven’t noticed lol. And I finally bought myself a pair of checkered slip ons. My Ramones tee is so comfy and loose, this is for sure my type of go to outfit if Im out and about running errands or something. I just threw on my oversized jean jacket with it and I’m good to go.

Look 2

Top// H&M (similar)

Jeans// Forever21+

Sandals// Kohls

Glasses// H&M

Now I will say I don’t wear those glasses all the time but how cool do they look?! I know I am so basic but hey I love it lol. Guns and Roses are actually one of my favorite bands so of course I had to buy the shirt when I saw it. I decided to wear sandals with this one because… well who doesn’t love a good pair?? It makes the outfit look a tad bit more dressy. 

Look 3

Top// Windsor

Shorts// Forever21+ (similar)

Sweater// Forever21

Boots// Nordstrom

This look is a little more dressed up but still casual and comfortable. Im not one to wear shorts all the time because I am self conscious with my legs, but I was like you know what who cares! Its so hot here in California right now and I cant just live in my jeans all the time lol. And honestly they’re the only jean shorts I own. The shirt is light weight and Def Leopard is another band I like thanks to my mom lol she L O V E S them. 

I thought adding in a few pictures of my little brother would be fun haha. He’s the other stylish one in our family! And like I said before he’s the one who took all these pictures for me for this post. Plus I told him I would feature a look of his. I think Im going to make him be in more blog posts more often.😉

Travis’ Look

Jacket// Thrifted

Shirt// Target

Pants// H&M (similar)

Shoes// Converse

Glasses// Ray Bans
