DOGS

hey all!

for the first time ever, i missed a blog post. ngl it feels totally weird but i am trying to tell myself that its okay but it feels like a huge downward spiral, because i want my blog to be around as much as possible. i have been totally busy worrying about school, college, life and more! but pinterest has been super cool for calming stuff.

so i put together a little post of my favorite pictures of dogs from my favorite pinterest board.

follow my board dogs for dogs on your feed all the time:

here we go!

Life Update: Feb. 18th 2018

hey all!

its 2/18/18!!

i’ve been totally busy and that is why this post is up so late! i didn’t really know what to write, but hey i decided i haven’t gone the personal route in awhile and i really wanted to catch up with you guys on my whole journey as a SECOND SEMESTER SENIOR (oh my god, still can’t get over all of this) so here we go!!

i have been getting alot of things together in my personal life and sorta starting to get wrapped up/organized for my big move to college (which i haven’t decided quite yet on, i am still thinking/waiting and making personal decisions regarding that) and honestly, at this point all of that is starting by organizing the things that i have and tossing the things that a) i don’t need or b) i’ve grown out of or c) are just trash and its been a ton of realizing for me, and teaching myself how to organize as an adult (woah kate, don’t get too far ahead of yourself you are 2.5 months away from being 18) but my school is ~lowkey~ bombarding the senior with the fact that we WILL BE (more or less) living on our own in like 6-7 months!!

with all of this self-actualizing, there have been a few things to destress #1. eat candy (which i know can’t do because i gave up candy for lent #rip)!! #2. go on pinterest and #3. work out. the third is what has been helping me a lot after school and getting focused in on the important stuff!

but stress has been something which feels really debilitating lately because i haven’t really wanted to go to school because i know i will be more stressed out, either my school (they are trying to help, i know i know!!) or my classes (with more work, especially philosophy, that class is just HARD because its a TON of brain power which i don’t feel always so confident with during the week). but its sorta hard to get motivated because all i want to do is sleep all the time and watch netflix but i need to get school work done, artwork done, focus on summer job plans and clean my room (guys its bad, real bad). i can’t feel anything but helpless about the whole thing, like there is ALWAYS something to do, even when i get home so i go down to relax but no way, i have homework which i end up putting off for a few hours to either make dinner or just sit in my bed wondering when i am gonna start my homework.

honestly, this sounds terrible, but i have also found it really difficult to blog lately, not because i feel like i don’t have ideas (because i do!) but i feel like i haven’t grown, and i see all of these people out here hustlin’, blogging as a full time job and i just think, god i do not have enough time/energy/motivation/money/body confidence to blog as much as i do. and i care SO MUCH about my blog – and my content that i want it to look great, and be growing but it feels like every time i work hard enough i am not moving as fast as i would like to, but hey its life.

i will continue making beautiful content for all that are here, and everyone else who may be here soon.

thank you all for sticking with me through all of this, and feel free to comment any reactions down below!

Must Haves: Belt Bags

Must Haves: Belt Bags

(this post contains affiliate links which may be monetized)

hey all!

did i mention yet that i am in love with belt bags? i DEFINITELY did! i love the style of wearing them crossbody like kendall jenner and gigi hadid do (and one of my favorite bloggers: song of style) i think its a super chic look and something totally unique and honestly pretty trendy and cool. it can pair well with a dress, denim, skirts or any pants too! its honestly such a versatile look and today i collected a few of my favorite belt bags in all different price points and different styles and colors depending on if you like simple or absolutely gaudy!

once again, a note to all my readers – this post does not mean i own any of the above, or that i will buy any of the above. it just means that i like it visually and (unless noted) i do not own it; all that i will write about is stuff i hear from friends and other users of the product as well as the visual aspects of the product which i will mention in the comment below!

here we go!

#1: pop & suki camera bag ( + belt bag strap )

this pop & suki camera bag is super cute, versatile & PERSONALIZABLE! you can put it together with a few different cute accessories, switch up straps and more! you can get different keychains and switch it up as you please! for it to be a belt bag it has to have the strap (which i linked above)!

#2: rebecca minkoff embellished belt bag

this is a fairly simple yet cute bag! it is on the middle pricing side and has super cute little embellishments on the bag with stars and constellations! super cute to pair with a plain dress.

#3: steve madden ‘w – bugged’

this one is on the gaudier side, but still super cute! i love the bugs and its a little bit similar to a gucci belt bag with little butterflies on it to! and its only $54 so its a perfect cheaper belt bag!

#4: ysl belt bag

i love this bag because not only is it simple but it has this adorable little tassel on it! the tassel is just a bit of style and if you are into designer stuff YSL is definitely the way to go.

#5:  topshop quilted faux leather belt bag

this is also a little cheaper version of the next gucci belt bag! i love the quilting and the red color and it too is only $50! its perfect in red as a little statement piece on top of your outfits.

#6: gucci matelasse belt bag

this is probably the most classic trendy belt bag out in the market! you’ve likely seen it everywhere, it comes in a beautiful red, pink and the black one shown here! its a little out of the price range of me, but if i were to go designer on a belt bag i’d get this one for myself!

#7: nasty gal hippie belt bag

just another classic belt bag! this one is perfect in size and can definitely carry a bit more and would be substantial for all of your travels!

(Early) Spring Look: Vol. 1

(this post contains affiliate links which may be monetized)

hey all!

sorry there was a *false alarm earlier today, this posted without any words because i forgot to save it! but anyway! because it already feels like it should be spring here ( i mean its been like 80 degrees here and its DYING) so i feel like i need to start getting into my spring looks now at least after valentines day so i can get started for this season!

once again, a note to all my readers – this post does not mean i own any of the above, or that i will buy any of the above. it just means that i like it visually and (unless noted) i do not own it; all that i will write about is stuff i hear from friends and other users of the product as well as the visual aspects of the product which i will mention in the comment below!

so here we go!

earlyspringlook2018vol1

/bodysuit/  topshop ring pull bodysuit  /skirt/ denim belted skirt /sneakers/ nike air force 1 ’07 sneaker /belt bag/ gucci matelasse belt bag /earrings/ edwardian ear crawlers /other/ tortoise hair clamp 

here’s a cute little street style look. i love hair clamps, and they are super in right now, i especially love tortoise (always) because it looks great in my hair! i also am in love with this bodysuit for a transition from winter into spring because its long sleeve but is a light fabric and can be paired with a really cute bralette and unzipped or just under a nice leather moto. this is a super unique looking skirt, its a darker jean fabric which is great for the season transition, not trying to get too light too soon. i LOVE these nikes, i want them so bad but i am highkey afraid i can’t pull them off, i love the little touches of red and are super cute with these sheer socks with the stars. i also love the look of belt bags rn, and i wish i could have this red gucci one, but its a little over my price point (i also love this one its a little faux gucci style) and finally these edwardian ear crawlers are fantastic and my other favorite earrings besides my hoops.

this look would be a perfect brunch look and awesome for any casual event
