It's nearing that time of year again where we stare at our own handwriting in confusion and think, "Did I really not write anything for two months?" 

Ahh, but the start of a new school year doesn't always mean the start of fresh tears. Well...maybe a little.
But I think it's important that we focus on the positive in all of this. 

Considering it's my senior year, this is the year that literally determines the majority of my future. It's a lot to take in, and I know that I'll be going on a couple of emotional roller coasters in the next couple of months, but I fully believe that everything happens for a reason.

And maybe that's what we all need to do once in a while. When life gets a little too crazy, just take a step back and visualize what you were doing a year ago. Did you ever think you'd be where you are now? Everything happens for a reason, and with every curveball that life throws at you, it's your opportunity to swing back with just as much force. (does that even make sense, I actually have no knowledge of baseball)

(also I really like these boots and this outfit was in my newest video that you should watch)

P.S. I'm currently in the process of re-vamping my blog, so I'm sorry if it's a bit of a mess right now! But shout out to one of my really good blogger friends, Joyce, for helping me out(: love you girl!

This week, we lost two amazing people. RIP Robin Williams and Lauren Bacall.
Isn't it such a horrible thing when those who are the saddest are usually the ones that seem the happiest on the outside? Before I start my post, I just wanted to let you guys know that...though you only get a glimpse of my life, I am always here for you if you need to talk! Feel free to tweet me or email me. Life is the most unpredictable thing, and things change every second. I don't want to see or hear you say that you hope you can be happy one day No. You will be happy.

As I'm writing my college essays (sorry, for these next couple of months, college will probably be mentioned at least once because it will probably take over my life), I realize how frustratingly hard it is to convince someone else how much you want to go to their school. 
My friends and I made our "senior" shirts the other day and I'm so proud of how well they turned out!! Hopefully I'll post a picture on here, but follow my instagram because it'll most likely be posted there(: 

ALSO, my back to school outfits video went live the other day! Click here to watch it. I'm really really proud of how it turned out and would love for you guys to check it out!
