Croc Bag Dreams: Achieved.

Hey everybody! I’m back with information that I have been dyyying to share with you guys since Christmas. You’re¬†gonna¬†laugh.¬†Wait for it..

My brother got me the perfect croc-textured baaaggg!! (THANK YOU, AARON <3)

Mind you, I did pick it out and order it myself.. he just gave me the money.¬†NONETHELESS he still got it for me, and I love it, and I’m gonna use it until it falls apart!

Do you guys remember how this croc-textured-bag-hunt started? I noticed that the Olsen twins (and many of my other style icons) wear them ALL THE TIME. Literally every candid photo of them is with some variation of a crocodile or snake-textured bag. They’re gorgeous, and I think they’re also¬†pretty classy (the bags and the Olsen twins). I could go on with how obsessed¬†I¬†am but I won’t. All I¬† can say is that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are terrible enablers.¬†The saddest part is that¬†we’ve never even met..

Anywho! I am very grateful for this Christmas present (and for my brother, obv). I hope that one day I can maybe own a nice expensive one. It will probably take a million years but until then, this one from Zara is my baby. I took some photos of her, have a look!

I’m reading¬†this over¬†and I’m realizing that¬†I’m treating this bag like it has feelings. If you know me, this is how I am with bags. If you don’t know me:¬†I AM A HUGE BAG LADY (/nerd). If I could own a closet full of bags, I really, really would. A bag “is merely a piece of iconography used to express individual identity”. Thank you Doug, from the movie Devil Wears Prada. The Devil¬†Wears Prada is my favourite movie and¬†I just found out the character’s name was Doug.¬†He’s right though! I feel like a woman can be defined by the kind of bag she wears.¬†Her bag can express her personality and her taste. Am I wrong?¬†Hopefully this Zara bag expresses that I’m a wannabe Olsen twin, haha! I can’t wait to wear¬†it all the time!¬†I’ll be sure to include it in upcoming outfit posts!

Hope you all have a fab weekend! Happy Fridaay!

Until next time,

Currently Loving (&HAPPY NEW YEAR!)

Hey friends! I’m currently a victim of a terrible stomach bug, and have isolated myself in my room with nothing to do. I can’t sit around and do nothing, so I thought I’d be productive and share a blog post! I kind of lost track of my “December Inspiration” and therefore I’ve¬†decided¬†to¬†just¬†share inspiration photos/photos of things I’m “currently loving”. I’ll probably continue to do monthly inspiration posts for 2017 because I like to see how my taste¬†evolves throughout the year. I¬†am going to put a stop to “Wardrobe Additions” though. As much as I liked the idea, I feel like it has encouraged me to shop more. I’ll go shopping and think: “I love this! And I could add it to my Wardrobe Additions for the month, so that’s even better!”¬†So basically I was buying (or thinking of buying)¬†even more clothes just¬†for blog content.¬†Definitely not the kind of mentality I should have if I want to save my money,¬†pay off student loans, and travel. I have plenty of clothes that I can remix and re-style. I think that’s the great part about fashion and personal¬†style. It works for any budget, and it’s more about how you express yourself than if you have the latest trendy piece. So here are some photos that inspire my current¬†taste in fashion/style, and also some photos that I just loove right now:

There you have it! A quick post on what’s currently inspiring me style-wise. I know it’s not much, but it’s something!¬†A¬†new year’s resolution of mine if to be more consistent with blogging and to¬†really (like¬†actually) start my YouTube channel. I will keep you guys updated!

And until then,¬†I hope you all had happy holidays and I can’t wait to see what 2017 has in store!

Have a great weekend (hope your Friday is going better than mine!),

Book Review: “The Clasp” by Sloane Crosley

DSCN2378

Hey everyone! Today I decided to try something different. For those of you who have been following me for a while, you probably know that one of my new yearns resolutions for 2016 was to read more books. And I have been doing just that! I think I have started a new book every 1-2 weeks.

Last week I finished “The Clasp” by Sloane Crowley. It was a fun read. A GREAT read! Nothing was really taken away from reading it, I can’t say I really learned anything… but I thoroughly enjoyed it nonetheless! This is Sloane’s first fiction novel and I have to say that it was one of the best written novels that I have read in a while. The way she wrote made it so easy to understand and relate. Her choice of language was perfect. She made the reader want to know every detail and on top that, she was hilarious!

In terms of the story (without giving too much away), it was about 3 college best friends who have grown up and have just entered adulthood. Friends are getting married, getting real jobs, etc. What’s interesting about these three is that they are different but somehow are caught in a little love triangle. Kezia, Nathaniel, and Victor are in love with one or the other. Kezia loves Nathaniel, Nathaniel loves Kezia, and Victor loves Kezia as well. Sloane takes the three of them on an unexpected adventure in Paris (my dream destination – I think it’s a sign!) that actually has nothing to do with their feelings towards each other. They’re on a hunt for this really old, expensive necklace that was hidden in the 1800s. It’s actually quite cool!

I want to say more but it’s really hard to go further into it without giving away the entire story. Just take my word for it, this book is a fun read. It’s super relatable, funny, and cute. Who doesn’t love a love triangle/romance in general? I’m a freaking sucker for this crap.

Anyways, I encourage you all to read this book! If you have any book recommendations for me, please let me know in the comment section below!! I’m actually thinking about sharing more books that I read in the future, does that sound like a good idea? I love to read almost as much as I love fashion. Why not combine the two?! Once again, lemme know your thoughts below!

Love you all! Happy Friday!
