Someone has to die in order that the rest of us should value life more. - Virginia Woolf

I was supposed to put up this blog post last week, but a member of my family died. I’ve been so out of it the last few days thinking about when I first met him, and how in his last few months he managed to change my life. I attended his funeral yesterday, and the message behind the service was amazing. They didn’t call it a funeral, but a celebration of his life. We danced to the music, listened to the sermon, and laughed at the funny stories that were told. As a reverend he touched so many people’s lives, and did so as one of the most straight talking and real men I’ve ever met in my life.

He would have loved to have been there because we laughed so much, and he was always making everyone around him laugh. Everyone kept saying that when they asked him if he was scared to die he said no. He planned out his entire service including the program, menu, music, and where he was to be buried. It takes a hell of a person to do that. I miss him, but I know that he would want everyone to be happy.

I’ll talk to you guys about the photo shoot that happened on Saturday soon. I’ll see you all in the next one, and have a great day.

"Am I wrong for thinking out the box from where I stay?" - NICO & VINZ Am I Wrong

On Saturday Mother Dear and I went out and took these photos, and I think they’re stunning. She’s really improving as my blog photo taker. I pulled this look together that morning, but I already kind of had the look in mind. I wanted to style my two favorite floral dresses (you’ll see the other look later this week), and I love the way the outfit turned out. I would pair this look with sheer black tights and white over the knee socks in the fall/winter.

I found the loophole in my schedule, and I officially joined the newspaper. I’m so excited. I’m still in the phase of being nervous about talking to people, but I’m sure it will pass. I also wanted to mention the fact that I won the dreamise contest for this month, so if you voted for me it then thank you so much! Your votes really did make a difference. I posted my next dream as an ASOS Gift Card, so please vote for again for September. I promise to post really awesome OOTD’s if I win. I hope you all have a really great day, and I’ll talk to you in the next one.

"If you'd have been there, if you'd have seen it I betcha you would have done the same" - Chicago Cell Block Tango

Well hello there, it's been awhile since last we spoke. You guys may already know this, but I'm in college now. As in I'm officially a full-time student who takes classes every day, and has a lot of fun doing it. These last two weeks have gone by quickly and already I'm learning so much. I thought my math class was going well, and then BAM! My teacher throws out a new concept and I'm thrown out on my ass. Good times. I think I'm going to be joining the school newspaper, and I'm so excited! I think we found a loophole in my schedule that will allow me to take the journalism class I need for the paper! It's not only great exposure, but it's going to be fun to try to convince everyone that we need a fashion section, and an exposé on all of the clubs around campus so that way people know what groups are there for them to join.

I have a few exciting things that are coming up (and I'm not talking about the 30STM concert that I'm going to muhahaha) that I can't wait to share with you. I'm going to do a blog post on these amazing boots that are not only affordable, but made in wide width so that they go all the way up your legs with no problem. I also have to do a post on Outside Lands, and film another haul video.

If you follow me on Twitter, then you know that I recently submitted pictures for the Wet Seal+ model search, and I'll find out if I made the cut sometime next week (I think). I've always wanted to model, but I always thought I wasn't “pretty” enough to do so. This blog and you all have given me the courage to do so many things, and to purse my dreams, and I couldn't be more thankful.

I’m going to do a shameless plug right now, and ask you guys to please make a Dreamise account and vote for my dream. There’s only one week left and I’m so close to making the top three and getting my dream funded. Dreamise is an amazing website that allows you to post three dreams that you have, and the ones with the most votes at the end of the month are either bought, or funded. I encourage all of you to sign up, because you never know if you’ll make it. I sure as hell didn’t think I would even be close to the leader board, but I am. It could be you next month. You never know.


I hope you all have a great day cottontails, and I’ll see you soon in the next one. Bye!
