There's an App for That!



Girls,

I am at that point where I am going absolutely crazy over all of the clutter in my closet! Those old sweaters and dresses from a couple years ago have come back to haunt me and I am ready to get rid of them once and for all! I just wanted to take an opportunity to tell all who are "seeing ghosts" from past wardrobes about this great App I have just discovered. 






Poshmark- your personal wardrobe "ghostbuster". Not only can you sell your own clothes, shoes, and accessories, but you can also shop for yourself from other's closets! "One woman's trash is another woman's treasure", right? Anyways, I am so excited about this new discovery and just had to share with you. Sell items, share your items in parties, and refill your closet with new items! Have fun!


Take a little peek at my closet while you're at it ;)

Quarter Life Crisis

Twenty-years old and the world is your playground. You're too young to know what you want in life. You've got so much more time ahead of you. Do it while you're young.

Alright, so I guess twenty hasn't exactly been my "golden" age. I've gone to college at a big university, I've chopped my hair completely off. Gotten a tattoo I have found myself regretting more and more. I've been in a couple more situations that are very significant, but I will not go into detail. Oh! How could I forget, I have dropped everything in my life and joined the military. 

I could sit here and tell you how much I have regretted and strongly disliked every one of the events listed above, but the truth is- crazily enough- I wouldn't trade any of those experiences for the world. I have seen the lowest of times and I have had the proudest moments that I will always remember. If it wasn't for the darkness in life, you wouldn't be able to tell the difference of when something is truly amazing. Everything I have seen, felt, the people I have met, the parts of the US I have seen- they all have helped me in the journey of figuring out my twenty year old self. Finding out who I am and want to be.

 Okay, I'll admit, the experiences I have had have definitely broadened my perspective and added very significant moments in my life and character...however, I am still 100% completely lost. I have gone through so many changes within the last 2 years, trying to figure out which roads to take and trying to get a taste of it all. Things are still changing. Things will continue to change. It's not about figuring myself out right now. They're right, I still have time. I would just like to find a little bit of ground to put under my feet, just so that I can finally start my journey. I have been searching. I have been opening many doors that have led me to an empty room and sometimes a maze. I just haven't found my room yet, and I think that's completely okay.

Here are just a few pictures from Prescott this weekend. Fall is definitely here, and I hope it's here to stay awhile! ;)

Creeks and Geeks

Just in case I haven't told you yet--HAPPY OCTOBER! I know it's almost over, but I am just so sad to see it go. This weekend I headed up North again (shocker, right?) and I wanted to do some of my favourite things up in the town of Prescott. My best friends and I walked a little creek downtown, had some of my favourite tea, and went thrifting. Take a little peek at what we were up to!
 
 
 
My favourite tea: Peach Rooibos!

 




**The random photos of the inside of the house is of my best friend's house: a hipsters dream!
 

 



















 
What do you enjoy doing on your spare time?

Mountain Air


Tylenol, rest, retail therapy, friends... Sound familiar? All can be a great way for you to unwind after a hard and stressful week. Recently work has been a little on the overwhelming side and no matter what I do after work, the worry never really seems to leave my mind. This weekend I was lucky enough to have today (Monday) off for Columbus Day! Hopefully most of you did as well. 

While most of my weekend did consist of the list I wrote above, I was craving one more thing. Nothing can cure the worried mind quite like a little hike up a mountain to a breathe-taking view. The crisp air was so refreshing and the sound of nothing but the wind help put my loud thoughts to rest. A few friends and I headed up North to seek this one-of-a-kind remedy.
                                          
                                          
                                          
                                          
                                          
                                          
                                          
                                          
                                          
                                          
                                         
                                          
                                          
                                          
                                          
                                          
                                          
                             
                                           

                                           


             When you find your mind running away from you, what do you do to slow it all down?
