THE ONLY TRAVEL PLAYLIST YOU NEED

Friday, September 28, 2018

Travel Playlist

This time yesterday I was getting ready for a flight to Florida, anxious annie coming out full force. When it comes to traveling I like to make as much of a plan as possible for the flight, & part of that includes making sure I have a playlist stock full of music to make me forget I'm however many thousand feet up in the air.


IN DEFENSE OF THE UNANSWERED TEXT

In Defense Of The Unanswered Text | With Dignity & Coffee

I was recently listening to Candice King & Kayla Ewell’s podcast (I’ve been getting into podcasts & I love) and they were chatting about the pressure to always be available and the expectations of sending that text back. I've always been an advocate of technology; it keep us moving forward & there can be a lot of good in it. But with that good also comes the assumption that we will always be there to post on social media and answer texts and phone calls and be ~on~ 24/7. 

FOREVER 21 (UNDER) $100 HAUL

Monday, September 24, 2018

A budget of $100, a promo code and a mission: see what kind of haul would happen. 

F21 is a go-to for staple items, which is what ended up happening here. Did I ~need~ two more sweaters in my wardrobe? Maybe not, but THEY ARE COZY AND THAT’S ALL THAT MATTERS. 

WHY THE DENIM SKIRT MIGHT BE MY FAVORITE PIECE

Friday, September 21, 2018


The denim skirt has been a long standing piece in my wardrobe. I currently have three I rotate between, & they are my ride or dies. They are there for me on the days when I just don’t know what else to wear, the days I need a pick me up, & the days I want to live out my nostalgic 90s dreams. 

THE BIRTH CONTROL DEBATE

The Birth Control Debate

I've been on birth control on & off since high school. I wasn't diagnosed with PMDD until a few years ago, but even before then every month was a war zone. Mood swings, debilitating pain, the works. Birth control has been and continues to be a lifesaver for me. It lets me live my life (for the most part) without dreading the pain. 

LUST LIST | THE COAT

Autumn has just barely hit Texas, sure, but we need to talk about the coat. 

GETTING OUT OF A TOXIC RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD

Friday, September 14, 2018


Earlier this year I published a piece on loving your body & the fact that it’s not always a thing. I talked a bit about my past eating disorder & how it’s affected me. Toxic relationships with food might be one of the hardest things to get out of, only because it’s ~always there~. 

$50 IN CLOTHES MENTOR

Wednesday, September 12, 2018

I went into clothes mentor with a challenge: what could I find with a budget of $50? Four items & $46 later, thank you, I was satisfied. Four things for under fifty bucks is a win in my book, especially when it’s two things at the most on an asos browse. (as much as I love asos, don’t get me wrong) 

WHY I'VE STOPPED WEARING JEANS

Monday, September 10, 2018


I used to be a jeans kinda gal. In the summer, of course, I'd stay as far as humanly possible away from them, but otherwise I loved a good jean. They were comfortable and I found wearing them to be a luxury, of sorts. But what happens when you feel you've outgrown them? CAN you outgrow a style? These are the questions I've been pondering since I found myself wearing a jean less & less often, instead favoring dresses and the ~kae staple~ of a denim skirt.

MY LOVE OF THE WIDE LEG PANT

Friday, September 7, 2018


There are many things I can say about many articles of clothing, but lately I’ve laid my affections on that of the wide leg pant. 

A SEPTEMBER MOOD BOARD

September Mood Board & Letter From the Editor
{all images via pinterest} 
Ah, September. With the beginning of the autumn months brings a sense of change: change in tone counting down to the holiday season, change in weather, change in fashion.  For me I tend to drift towards darker colors in the cooler months, hence the theme of September's mood board. 

WHAT MY WEEK LONG SPENDING DIARY LOOKS LIKE

What My Week Long Spending Diary Looks Like

After reading Hannah's post, I was intrigued by the idea of blogging a spending diary. Each month I have a budget spread in my bullet journal, where I'm to keep track of every purchase. & yet, I'll be the first to admit I'm not the greatest at it. Is it the matter of simply getting the information from the receipt to the page, or is it something deeper, my subconscious yelling 'Ignorance is bliss, ignorance is bliss!'
