I thought I would do a quick post on a few things to know about me. I was going to make them about me as a blogger but the five things ended up being about what I recently learned about myself. Living here in LA, the people are different than Texas in a few ways. They tend to be more chill and not as loud or welcoming. There are just subtle differences of course and I’ve joked that the farther from LA you get the nicer people get! LA is a place where everyone is fighting to make it big, so it’s understandable.
- I do not consider myself creative : I get my inspiration from others and even then I still struggle putting outfits together and I dissect the details until I feel like it’s right!
- I can talk a lot and very loudly : I have a big personality and I have a hard time just turning it off. If I am being quiet for a long time there is usually something wrong!
- I try to make most things a joke or something to laugh about : Even in serious situations, this is like a coping mechanism I guess, but I do this in everyday situations as well
- I have a hard time communicating exactly what is in my head : I understand concepts but I cannot always convey that accurately
- I have sometimes need to think before I speak because I tend to just have word vomit : It’s like that mean girls scene where Katy just keeps talking and talking, that’s me
Life is one big learning experience. Just when you think you’ve got something down you are thrown into a totally new situation. If you’re lucky its a situation you are not comfortable with. That when you are forced to grow. Remember the grass is always greener on the other side. But add some fertilizer to that b*tch and make a garden in your own yard.
What are five things that you learned about yourself recently?

I’ve been thinking about how to mix up my blog posts and I came up with the idea of telling y’all what is saved in the bookmarks of my computer. If y’all like this, leave me a comment or tell me what you would like to see! I am not going to add ALL of my bookmarks. I only added the places in my bookmarks that I like to shop at. Next time I will probably add bookmarks to articles I think are interesting or cool cooking recipes!
Before we get into my bookmarks, let’s talk outfit. This outfit is so me. It’s got light pink and white, and of course my favorite hat. The top is sheer so its easy to tuck into my shorts and becomes the focal point of the outfit. The shoes set the vibe for the outfit and the hat matches that vibe and blends well with the color of the top. The denim creates a neutral so the outfit is still wearable. That’s what I think at least!

If I am being completely honest, I had no idea this was an art installation at first. I totally just thought it would be a functioning Prada store in the middle of nowhere. I had been wanting to shoot here for forever! SAD STORY : I asked my dad to take a short detour on our drive back to California just so I could come here to shoot and when we got closer I was looking for my camera and realized that I left it Texas! I am still lowkey devastated if I am being completely honest…
Anyway, I was able to do what I had to and took pictures using my horrible iPhone. It literally overheated the phone every time and I had to delete so many things just so I could take a few bursts. It was horrible! Okay.. rant over.
I’ve been getting more into art pieces because of my job. It is honestly interesting, and while I still struggle to fully comprehend it all, it’s a good challenge for me! This installation is by Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset.
