Ok so this post is wayyyy overdue but as I’ve said before I’m irresponsible and unable to keep a deadline. Also I’ve just been struggling with this whole blogging thing. Like idk lately I’ve just been thinking what’s the point, not lately, ever since I started four years ago I’ve been questioning what’s the point. And I think the reason its not doing so well is because I haven’t been able to answer that question for myself. I’m sure other bloggers out there feel the same way, like I’ll work on a post for a couple hours and then think who gives a crap and not even post. Like why should anyone care about what I’m wearing and what I’m eating, what value is this bringing anyone. And I know that I follow people strictly for the aesthetics like I love the look of their pictures so I follow their instas and read their blogs but idk when I post anything I always just think what is the point of this content I’m putting out there, am I just adding to this internet noise, so that’s why my insta and blog are always changing, cause im trying to find something different. So yeah my apologies for my inabilities to post consistently, hope you enjoy the weirdness of this post though.

If you do stop by and miraculously read this till here, leave a comment if you can relate to those fraudulent, adding-to-the-internet-noise feels. (no one leaves comment *tears*)

Till next time, whenever that may be<3

Oh and this is what I was for halloween, check out valfre’s instagram if you don’t know who this is

I got this whole outfit this week at Forever 21 so I’m sure all this stuff is still there, although I couldn’t find it online. I linked some things below from stores you can find in the mall so that you don’t have to order online and wait for shipping.

So I thought why not do a Halloween inspired post on my blog while we are still in those Halloween weekend vibes. I’m a huge fan of the movie Leon: The Professional. It’s one of the only moves that makes me cry without fail. Even finding a quote from the movie to caption my photo with made me a little teary eyed. If you haven’t seen this movie yet I highly suggest you do, the writing is incredible, the acting is amazing the plot is fantastic, and Luc Besson ties it all together brilliantly. And above all those things baby Portman is in this movie, and what could be better than that.
I saw this wig at ALDO and immediately thought it would be perfect for a Mathilda costume. Although short (or black) hair doesn’t work that well with my face, I thought all together the grungy look was cute. I didn’t have a medium sized potted plant at my house, so I just took some pictures at a grocery store. That’s not weird right?
Anyways hope you guys had a fun, safe Halloween! And hope you’re all excited for the adventures the new month will bring. Lots new content on here for nablogwrimo, stick with me, it’ll be fun.


I Love Fall

I can find something great in every season but this one is seriously one of my favorites. I think the reason is that in California we experience a very dramatic change in the weather somewhere in early October. While everyone is getting ready for Halloween in the hot weather and picking costumes that show very generous amounts

of skin, the weather goes bipolar and freezing temperatures visit California (freezing weather to Californians is pretty much sundress weather for the rest of the world). Speaking of Halloween costumes how did you guys like my Halloween post? (if you haven’t seen it yet you should go check it out).  However this giant change in weather brings beautiful streets with falling leaves and rainy sidewalks. I used to love walking home from school right after the rain had passed, in the brisk weather with the smell of rainy sidewalks, it was probably the only time I really enjoyed that long walk.  I decided to put some of my absolute favorite things about this season in this set. I absolutely love the comfort clothes that this season brings, it allows you to be more at home in public and to forget about appearances. I think that is why this season is filled up with delicious food holidays. We are allowed to pig out on Halloween and thanksgiving because the next day we can through on a giant oversized sweater and no one ever has to know that you ate two pumpkin pies by yourself last night. That’s why I believe leggings, scarves, and oversized sweaters are a must this season. Another favorite of mine from this season is the smells that come with it. I absolutely adore the smell on the streets after the rain has passed and the smell of food cooking for the holidays. But my all time favorite smell is the one they pump into the air of certain stores like Michael’s and Pier1.  I got this “Leaves” candle from bath and body works and it is probably the closest smell I could find to the one in the stores. We plugged in a bunch of wallflowers into all the outlets at our house and the entire house smells like holiday happiness now. Lastly I absolutely adore that wearing all dark colors is more acceptable in this cold weather because most of my wardrobe is dark fall colors so I definitely have the most options in this season. I will definitely have a lot of fall outfit posts coming up in the near future so stay tuned for those and I will link them all below.
