Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! This year I'm a space alien, mostly because I wanted to wear glitter makeup. I told Travis that if he didn't pick a costume, he'd have to be a cat... so, he's a business cat.

It wasn't actually my cheapest costume ever haha. I went to Goodwill and grabbed all the shiny stuff I saw. I made my peplum from a holographic car shade that I took apart, pleated, and sewed to a ribbon. Other than that I basically glued pom poms everywhere and had fun with my makeup! Definitely wish I still had my pink hair for this costume.

Hope you all have a spooky day!

High Low

I've been so slack. I miss posting with any semblance of regularity, but. It is what it is. Now that I rarely have time to photograph my outfits, I feel really pressured to pick out a good one on the days that I have camera time. It makes blogging stressful, and I'm not here for that.

-I went home last weekend and that was nice.
-I'm going to be a space alien for Halloween.
-My boyfriend and I are going to pick out a duvet cover today.
-I'm a contributor for Sammi's huge giveaway, go enter!

Star Girl

I read this book in middle school called Stargirl. About a mysterious girl who was just really special and changed the main character's life. It was kindof a manic pixie dream girl situation now that I think back on it, but I really enjoyed it at the time. Then again, I basically wanted to be a manic pixie dream girl for most of my teenage years. One of the many things that has changed since then is that I define myself much less based on how boys see me nowadays. But I'm still wearing the sneakers I wore to junior prom!

I hope to get my life together and start posting more soon. It will help immensely when Travis has a job and I'm no longer paying all the rent by myself.

Like a Pumpkin

I do this a lot, where I'll take all my photos and edit them, and by the time they're uploaded I realize there's like. 1 good shot of my outfit. I dressed all orange like a pumpkin on the day I took these, which, turns out, was last week. Some days it feels like fall and others its still summery! I keep trying to add sweaters and tights to my wardrobe, but winter clothes are a lot bulkier than summer dresses and I don't have much room!

I got to hang out with a couple of my friends the other day, which was really nice, and my family is coming down for breakfast tomorrow, I'm so excited! I really just wanna buy a ton of shit at Forever 21, like a craving for junk food. 

I really need to kick it into gear and get some art done. I feel guilty for every day that I don't make art. You can still enter my giveaway, only a couple more days!
