Looking inside

I am seriously overwhelmed by the amount of visitors and comments I’ve gotten over the last couple days. I know it’s not a lot compared to the big time bloggers, but my best day was January 4th with 174 unique vistors and my last blog has over 60 comments. That amazes me. When I started this blog, I figured it would only be me and a few of my friends reading it. I really love visiting other blogs and leaving encouraging comments and it makes me really excited to see that other bloggers appreciate my blog as well. So, thank you!

*Sweater: Thrifed (Crossroads). Hat: Forever 21. Jeans: Wet Seal. Necklace: Urban Outfitters. Boots: Urban Outfitters

I wore this to get together with my friends; a movie, dinner, game kind of night. We’ve been having these types of get togethers since high school. While other high school kids went out and partied, we stayed home and played games and watched movies. Because we are awesome. In all honesty though, those end up being some of the best times.


I know I just ranted on about how New Year’s resolutions aren’t my thing, but goals and improving my life, including my outlook on life, are. As I’ve said before, I am currently in a long distance relationship and it’s hard. Sometimes I let it get the best of me and I become moody and withdrawn from life, but I’veΒ realized that is a waste of time. I need to learn that it is ok to be happy and have fun, even if I am desperately missing my boyfriend. So my goal for this year, for life actually, is to not let bad situations determine my outlook on life.

Also, to have fun. Because I am totally comfortable staying at home and being the responsible one, but I can’t be an old lady at 25!


Ok, let’s shake off that sappy, feelings thing (I swear, I’m such a guy. I hate feelings!) and get back to the real issue of this post. Apparently, my bangs decided to sprout wings? Are we in the 70’s? I’m not sure what was up with my bangs that day, I did my normal routine (which is blow dry them while they fly around, with no brush… how can that turn out bad?), but it was a little out of control. I think I’m going to take some scissors to them this weekend. That will teach them!

Also, I was called a one eyed monster after my boyfriend saw this picture. Why do I miss him so much again? Ha! Kidding πŸ˜‰


Borderline trespassing in this picture by the way. We were shooting pictures in the alley behind my house and the gate to a neighbors yard was open. If your blinds or door are open, I’m going to look. I’m a creeper like that.


I found these boots in the clearance section at Urban Outfitters and they were the last ones in my size. I’m telling you!


I was laughing because my boyfriend had to hold my coat while he took pictures of me and there wasn’t really anywhere to put it, so he was wearing it on his head the whole time. I could not stop laughing. I should have taken a picture of him.


Said coat.

P.S. Thank you to all my new Bloglovin’ followers!

  10. Cool outfit!! Love it!!!


  11. I looove when something is on sale, and the last one is in your size, that’s how I found my awesome NYE shoes. I almost gave up, too.. but something told me to keep looking.. and then there they were! haha. Those boots are pretty amazing, though.
    It does suck that you have to be away from your boyfriend sometimes.. but you are right.. You still have a life to lead, and you shouldn’t let anything slow you down, or get in the way. You’re only young once, so you should enjoy it!! πŸ™‚

  29. Such a cute post!
    I laughed because – MY BANGS DO THE EXACT SAME THING! All the time, they always have. It’s so frustrating, because the rest of my hair isn’t Farah Fawcett-y, yet my bangs insist. Sigh!

    Certainly a ton of comments & visits- def nothing to scoff at! I’m thrilled just when I get a couple comments : ) Thanks for yours by the way! I completely agree with you on the Resolutions thing, mine definitely were more goal-oriented and things I need to improve on in general. You made a really great one to live life more, def something I need to remind myself of more as well. Great look w/ that oversized sweater too & such a pretty place for pictures. Hope you have a good weekend : )
