Fox + Cottontail Is Dead.


It's time to start over.

This post should have been up awhile ago, but I couldn’t bring myself to take the plunge. You may have noticed that all of my side links no longer work, and that’s because I’ve changed my handle and my blog.

I’ve had this blog for over a year and a half, and although I love it dearly I’ve decided to make a change. I started this blog when I was just starting out and now I’ve outgrown it. I’ll post a link to my new blog below. I hope some of you decide to make the change and want to check out my new blog. You can follow it on bloglovin as well. I hope you guys will like the new format and the new style, and if not that’s okay. I hope all of you have a great day, and I'll see you on my new blog!

Hat - a shaped covering for the head worn for warmth, as a fashion item, or as part of a uniform.

I don't know if you noticed, but I posted my outfit of the day on YouTube yesterday and although the video has been liked several times, I wanted to talk about an observation I made. Obviously the sweater dress is on the shorter side, but I didn't know I'd receive the reactions I did. Why is it so scandalous for a woman to wear something short? It wasn't even men who had the problem because most of them just ignored me (or gave me glances when I wasn't looking), but the women were a whole different story.

I can’t believe she wore something so short.
I would never go out of the house like that.
Oh wow.
I couldn’t believe the level of bitchiness that was thrown in my direction. I always applaud other women when I see they have on something amazing (not literally, but I will go up to them and tell them how awesome their outfit is). I posted on my Tumblr that life is too short to not wear what you want. My style has changed so much over the last few years, and I'm happy to say that I'm finally starting to be more comfortable and confident in what I wear. Once I realized that I could pull off any look I wanted to, it opened so many doors. You should never be afraid to try a new style, even if it's just once. That way you know what does and does not look good on your body. I hope you all have a great day cottontails, and I'll update you more in the next one.

Neon - fluorescent lighting or signs (whether containing neon or some other gas).

A fact is a simple statement that everyone believes. - Edward Teller

SIDE NOTE - I finally found my camera remote, so all photos were taken by me

Who's ready for an update? The last few weeks have been super crazy and stressful, and some of the toughest I've had to deal with in a while. My anxiety is back with a vengeance, and it's now to the point where I have to be medicated because I'm having panic attacks. It sucks, really. A few of my articles that have been published on my schools newspaper site have been added to my writing portfolio, but I ran out of free space so it will be a few days before they are all up there. I have to upgrade both of my portfolio sites to premium, but it's worth it to get everything up.

Nana and Poppop are both sick, and Nana fainted on Halloween, which is why I didn't get any pictures of my costume. She's fine now, but Mother Dear and I found out that she discharged herself because she wanted to come home and sleep in her own bed (my grandmother is a pistol). We both kind of gave her dirty looks and moved on because arguing with her is a losing battle and now worth it at all.

I spent this weekend catching up on sleep, and getting some much needed time to myself. I was going to film a video, but thought about it and decided to do it today, so keep your eyes peeled for it. I'm still going to be doing the post on women wearing menswear, but Father Dear hasn't gone through all of his stuff yet, so I'm waiting on him. If he takes too long I'll just borrow some pieces from him and never return them. Muahaha

The last thing I want to bring up is the fact that I'm going to start corset training soon. It's something that I've always wanted to do, and I've always been more than a little bit envious of those girls with the perfect hourglass figures. I was wearing a corset under my Halloween costume, but the bones bent and started stabbing me in the ribs. I found a great site called Alt-Noir which I heard does really amazing and sturdy corsets, so I'm super excited. I'm going to be doing a whole series on it, and I'll give you more of an update once I've ironed out the kinks.

I hope you all had an amazing weekend, and Happy Halloween. Bye my little cottontails, and I’ll see you in the next one.
