The 3 Reasons You HATE Your Wardrobe

Hello, hello,

Do you frequently go through your closet and think you have nothing to wear? Or maybe you flat out just hate your wardrobe.

Here are 3 reasons why you hate what's in your closet:

1. You Want to Try A Different Look

How many of us have been there? You've spent hours and hours on Pinterest looking up a certain fashion style whether it's Bohemian, Classy/Classic/Sophisticated, Casual, etc. and wanted your wardrobe to resemble that look. In other words, you want to try something new because your sense of style has grown. Alas, your wardrobe is filled with clothes that don't fit your growth and changing style personality.

Quick Fix: Start buying the clothes you want in your wardrobe now. It doesn't have to be all at once. It can be a little at a time.

2. You Keep Old Items You No Longer Want or that Don't Suit Your Style

On the same token, you may have started to change your wardrobe based on a newfound sense of style but you're self-sabotaging by keeping the old items you don't like anymore. You may say to yourself "it still fits" or "it's in good shape"but you need to ask yourself the following questions:

A. Do I need it for work (or anywhere else)?
- If you don't, then you may not need it.
B. Could I switch this item out for another item I'll like more?
- This is another good option if the item you want to throw away serves a particular purpose. For ex. A lumpy sweater that's cozy but clashes with your polished dresses can be replaced with a thick but sophisticated blazer or cardigan.

Quick Fix: It's time to let those go. The clothes you no longer want may be the jewel of someone else's closet.

3. You Aren't Dressing for Yourself

Oh my gosh - this is a HUGE pet-peeve for me. While it's normal to buy fad items or to take inspiration from things you've seen online, in magazines or on a friend it's a completely DIFFERENT story if you completely remodel yourself on other people's looks. You shouldn't be a carbon copy of your friends. Individual people have individual senses of style. This means that just because all of the other people in your friend group wear their glasses on their heads with sassy little fringe boots doesn't mean you have to.

Quick Fix: Go to a store and find clothes you like. If anyone dislikes you for your choice in fashion, it's their problem.

Ladies, you are BEAUTIFUL. God made you to be you.

Straight Hair at the Beginning of a New Semester

Hey guys,

Am I the only one who likes to do something different with their hair before they go back to school? I  haven't straightened my hair since July and it's funny seeing the difference.  It sort of amazes me especially because about a month ago I cut my hair in a heart-shape and so the layering of my hair is different in itself.

It makes me wonder what it'll look like when it grows longer.

That's the fun thing about hair -- the experimentation with it. So far, my experiments have only included locs, henna and cutting my hair into a heart-shape (as I've mentioned above) but it's never been anything that drastically reduced the length of my hair or changed its color.

Have you ever had a drastic hair cut? Are you planning one in the near future? Have any ideas? I'd love to hear about it!

I'm Back! - Glasses, Overalls and Turtlenecks

Hello, hello my lovely geeks!

It's nice to see you all again. I'm sorry I haven't been on in so long! I've been a busy bee. Expect more outfits in my next posts! I'm trying out different outfits for winter.

I've really wanted to experiment with turtlenecks, overalls, and necklaces (as you can see below). Overalls will probably be the most fun item to experiment with this winter, I think. Stay tuned for more overall outfits and my other fashion experiments! (And of course, I'll make them quirky and fun! What's fashion without some fun?)

I literally just wanted to wear something quirky today with no regard to fashion norms or rules - just nice jewelry and a good pair of overalls was all I really wanted today. Gotta say, I love boho-chic necklaces like the pendant I'm wearing below. Sooo fun to wear!

Fashion and Fresh Food

Hey all! How have you been?
Well I've not only been clearing out old junk, I've also been trying to dress in a minimalistic fashion, as you can probably tell from the picture above. I LOVE wearing classy colors, as you can tell by the classy white eyelet peplum and red pencil skirt pictured above.

Well, that's not the only thing that's new this week. I also got a Rocket Blender. Yep!. I've always wanted a personal blender so to be able to buy one for a low price was amazing! With it, I've already begun to make smoothies and Nice Cream-- which isn't actually ice cream because no cow's milk is included. I only used bananas and coconut milk to make the first one and added spinach, mango, banana, and pineapple in the mix.

I froze this little mix overnight and ate it with a spoon this morning.

Accompanying this, I got one of those egg and steak wraps from Starbucks. Yum!!!

I had a full, healthy meal! It felt so good as I'm always running around. As I'm trying to be healthy and cut out more sugar, I'm super excited for this. I'll be posting more recipes soon enough.

Hello darlings,

Sorry for not responding in a while. I've been doing many, many things. School has me working over time, not to mention my jobs.

Well I guess I should update you on a few things...

1. I took my locs out

I took them out around February because they weren't going to turn out the way I wanted them to. Oh well... I actually love having my hair out. Gives me time to experiment and even press it out.

2. I'm practicing Minimalism

No, I don't mean the fashion trend. (Although I do love the Minimalist Fashion style. You will be seeing it on my blog).
I mean I'm trying to LIVE as a minimalist.
I love clothes. I really do, but I do NOT need all of the ones I have. They've been spilling out of my drawers and I'd rather have some space than a pile of clothes I do NOT need. I've also found a LOT of other things that are better off tossed such as mismatched earrings. Ooh. They've been cluttering on the dresser!
I've also been trying to buy less from this endeavor which is sometimes hard when you like to spend on nice things.

3. Delicious Foods

On another note, this is the year I've begun to try out new foods around where I live. A couple of Thai dessert places have moved in as well as some other yummy food spots and I plan to talk about them as well.
