Time Flies

Hello All!

I apologize for the fact that I have not posted in over 4 months. My life has been hectic and I have not had the mindset to do this. I'm slowly coming back to it, though. I'm hoping to have a somewhat set schedule within the next few weeks. Until then, bear with me. When I come back, I promise to come back ready and eager.
So, I guess I should tell you all briefly about what has been happening in my life, the reasons that I haven't posted in 6 years. A LOT has been going on. I got a job, and then I hated it so I got another job, which I also hate but kind of love because my hours are amazing. My boyfriend signed up for the U.S. Army and is leaving for basic training in less than 3 weeks:(. Oh, and I am graduating in less than a month! It's kind of scary thought. I am still trying to decide on a school. I have three choices: The Art Institute of Charleston, SC, The Art Institute of Raleigh-Durham, NC, or The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, PA. Pretty much far, far, far away from little old Louisiana. I've got until August/September to make up my mind, but I'm sure that time will fly by just as fast as the time since my last post has.
I will give you all a fair warning, this summer, if I can keep up with this as much as I have planned, this is going to be a VERY sappy place for me to come crying to. My boyfriend and I have been together for almost 3 years, and being 9 hours away from him this summer is going to SUCK. I will have many a sleepless night and I will probably either gain 30 pounds from eating my feelings, or lose 30 pounds from being depressed. I hope its the latter!
By the way, did I mention I've lost almost 30 pounds?! Not that any of you care or anything, but yeah. I have. It's a nice feeling. One day whenever I get around to posting pictures again, you all can see my accomplishments. I'm proud of myself. :)
Well, I have talked a lot about myself tonight and quite frankly I am tired of it. I just wanted to let you all know that I'm coming back, very soon. After all, I am going to need something to keep me occupied this summer while Stephen is away! Thank you for reading this, if you've taken the time to do so. I'll be back soon. Very soon.

So long!

The Time Has Changed, And So Have I

Well, It's been a while. It's been three months or so. I really can't say I'm sorry for my lack of posts, because I'm not. My life has been a roller coaster the past few months and blogging just hasn't been a priority. Actually, blogging hasn't been anything at all. Not to me.
I'm trying to find an interest in doing it again, but it's very hard. Especially just to blog about fashion and style. It's not something that really interests me anymore. What was once all that I cared about, now means nothing. I want to continue to blog, but I want to blog about other things. Things that I care about now. Sure, I might do an outfit post every now and then, but I want to use my blog for something more than that. What that is, I haven't quite figured it out yet.
Maybe I'll use it for business purposes, as I am trying to work my way into becoming a photographer. Maybe I'll use it as a journal of my daily life. Maybe I'll use it for DIY's. Maybe I'll do a little bit of everything, make it controversial. Who knows. I guess time will tell.
For now, I'd rather not expand on all of the ins and outs of my life. Maybe I'll do that in the days to come. I just really wanted to use this post to tell all of my readers, and myself, that I'm coming back. I may not keep up with my blog every day like I used to. Probably not even every other day. But, I'm in desperate need of a creative outlet right now. Might as well use this ole blog, no matter how often I post.
I don't want to make this too long. Most everyone who reads this post probably won't even take the time to fully read it. But that's okay. I'm not taking too much time to type it. I'll be back in the coming days. Maybe I'll share some of my most recent photography with you all? We'll see.

Until next time,

I Got My New Shoes On

My new shoes came in today!!! I cannot tell you how incredibly excited I am! Two I absolutely love and one pair is I honestly don't think I will ever wear them. Unless I were to ever go to a Lady Gaga concert, which I would never do. She's just not my cup of tea.


This dress. What can I say about this dress. I'm not sure whether I love it or hate it. The shade is something quite odd, but I like the print. It's floral, of course I love the print. This dress has a mind of its own. It's very flowy...almost too flowy.


These shoes are officially my FAVORITE! I wore them for about 4 hours today. Can I say most comfortable shoes ever?! I seriously love them. Of course, I love all of my shoes, but these especially so. I love the cream color of them. I will certainly NOT be following the "No White After Labor Day" rule. These are just way to pretty to put away for so long.
Well, I'm off to get ready for the long day ahead. Have a lovely day and thanks for taking the time to read this. Especially you, coffee shop girl who told me I was going places. You're so very appreciated. You know who you are.

Seniors, Seniors Shout 9 More Months And We'll Be Out!

Hi everyone! Sorry I've been gone for so long! I started my senior year Wednesday and have been so busy ever since. But I'm back! I don't think I'll be able to post every day because of my schedule, I'm thinking I'm going to post on Monday, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays right now. It's too much for me to blog everyday. Sorry ladies!

I LOVE this outfit! This shirt is a new staple in my wardrobe. It goes with almost everything. I can wear it over, under and in between so many different things. I am so happy that I found it.
Ah, my boots. I love my boots. I'm pretty sure that these boots have been in maybe at least 70% of all of my outfit posts. I just cannot get enough of them. They make even the girliest of my outfits edgy and I love that about them.

Well ladies, 6:45 comes super duper early. Have a wonderful Monday at school and work and wherever else you may be! Sweet dreams!

Hype Me

I've Found Heaven

That's right folks! I've found Marshalls! I've only been in this store a handful of times and a few weeks I went in and fell in love with many a thing. Today, I went in on a whim and found three lovely pieces, two shirts and a skirt.


I am in so much love with this skirt. I love the hippie feel of it and girly lace. And the shirt? AH! It reminds me so much of Peggy Olson, from Mad Men. She, Betty Draper and Joan Holloway are huge influences on my style right now. Joan is certainly my favorite, but I love all three.


I love this picture! I always try to get sunflares and sunspots in my photos, but it hardly ever works. I Love the way this one turned out.


I got these shoes about 2 years ago. I love them, but they are so uncomfortable, they never get worn. It's sad. But, they got worn today, so they should be happy shoes for now.

So, I dont mean to get all sappy and whatnot, but I start my Senior year in two days. Yeah, TWO days! The more and more I think about it, the more scared I get. I'm excited to start school and get it over with, but I am also very sad that it's practically over and I am really scared about what happens next. I really have absolutely no idea where this time has gone. I remember starting my Freshman year like it was yesterday. Ugh. And the waterworks start. I've gotta stop talking about this.

Have a swell night!

Strange Things Are Happening

If you haven't noticed, my gadget bar is showing up at the very bottom of all of my posts. It's really bothering me. I've tried to fix it under my template design settings, but it says everything is in its normal position. It's really upsetting me. Is it doing this on your blog too? It's really frustrating and I don't know what's going on!
