The Never Ending Battles

After spending all of last week being sick and disgusting, I am back and ready for action. The only thing fitting of my new found resilience and pride in my abilities to fight off illness is an outfit that’s just as battle ready. I wore these combat boots which I find very representative of the struggle I face every morning as I grapple with the fact that I have to put on real shoes. My jacket is just as meaningful as it accurately depicts my struggle to stay weather appropriate as the temperature changes from hot to cold at alarming rates, typically resulting in a runny nose on my part. I find that the sweater ties it together with the fun, bright stripes that contrast with its snuggly and warm nature just as I push to stay bold and enthusiastic despite my desire to be curled up in bed and surfing the web.

Valentine’s Nails

Because I’m very cheesy and have not done a nail art post in a while, I decided to give a thematic one a go and post some Valentine’s Day nail art that I’ve been rocking for the past week. They’re all very simple designs that only relied on 3 polishes each (both of which include my favorite polish in the color ‘love’ from Pure Ice) and were painted to the musical stylings of Ariana Grande and her album Your’s Truly, which I will be blasting all day on Friday as I prepare for my super hot date with my laptop and my box of Thin Mints. Hopefully, any of you who are looking to do some semi-festive, but still fairly relaxed nail art are inspired!100_2437100_2431 100_2405 100_2395

Hope you guys have a great Valentine’s Day and feel free to drop your plans for it down in the comments! 🙂

Mundane Mondays

I’ve had a really cool outfit planned for a while. It was Allison Argent inspired and I had already typed up the post for it, added all of the tags, and gotten myself emotionally hype for it when I found out that I had lost the dress I planned as the focal point of it, leading to a fashion slump that I’ve been slowly working my way out of. Today, though, I made the decision. I could not continue to go one living my sad, pathetic dress mourning life. Today, another new episode of  Teen Wolf comes on and I decided that it was my duty to take charge of that fact and to go out and make myself another outfit with my Argent-esque jacket because if there’s anything I learned from Allison Argent herself, it’s that I should never give up (and also that once you date a werewolf, it’s apparently incredibly difficult to go back to dating ordinary humans, but that’s a lesson for another day). While this outfit may not be as strong in it’s resemblance, it still touches a special place in my television loving heart, and that’s all I can really ask for.100_2371 100_2376
