What time is it? Summertime! It's our vacation.


"What time is it? Summertime! It's our vacation."

Hiya! I am currently doing backflips. Do you know that feeling when your professor or teacher announces the end of the semester or school year? With final exams coming in the next week, I have a sudden case of senioritis. I must keep focus! I've been anticipating the end of the semester since the first day of school. Anyways, that's enough of that.

'Tis that season again. Okay! Not that season. The season of summer love and adventure. Are you ready? I am. I am ready to turn off my alarm clock and sleep in. This is where I insert the part where I romanticize summer. Ready? Here goes. Bonfires, beaches, sparklers, staying hydrated, nice tans, hot guys, summer romance, and adventure. Did I do a decent job?  I'm ready for it all. I've just about tossed the school books aside and brought out my dresses. I think the people around me are realist. They're sick of me.  A little fantasy doesn't hurt anyone. I am keeping the dreamer within me alive. That dreamer is ready to try new things. The idea of summer makes me giggle like a teenage girl talking to her crush. I think I may be in too deep.

Life is being lived and everyone is in love.

Last summer I fell in love with the night. I fell in love in the moment. In my end-of-summer post, I poured my heart into my final nights of summer. This summer I plan on pouring my heart into every day and night this season allows.

I fell in love with this summer evening like it is my first love. It was like a scene in a movie. A scene where there aren't any words. There is just music. Everything is moving in slow and fast motion. It's like the scene in the movie where there is just pure happiness. Life is being lived and everyone is in love. Even if it's just for the night. Strangers are meeting and everyone is becoming one. A true and happy blur. 

I'm not quite sure what my plans are for the summer to come. I didn't want to plan anything. There is enough stress in having a schedule. I do know that I have a concert coming up in a couple of weeks that I am excited for. I'm just going where the wind blows. I'm following my heart. After stressing about school and all the course work, I owe it to myself to be free. So, wherever my daydreaming and night thinking takes me, I'll be here to write it out in my very public diary. Stay tuned.

 "May the odds ever be in your favor."

To everyone out there taking final exams or are working hard for something, I wish you all the best. To the graduates of 2017, best wishes to you and your future. To those who want to fall in love this summer, go ahead and fall in love with whatever and whomever you'd like. To those who want to be free, butterfly fly away. The world is your oyster. To those who are dreaming, dream on. The world is more colorful because of you. To everyone and anyone, I wish you the best summer ever. Cheers to Summer '17!


All the love as always,

Lust List: Spring Edition






Spring is in full effect here in New York. There have been random rainy days and some really hot days recently. I still believe the weather has been perfect. With this perfect weather comes less layers. I can wear dresses again without worrying about my skin being irritated because of how cold it is outside. I can bring out those pretty blush sandals that I bought while it was still cold. Can you tell how excited I am about the seasons changing?

With my excitement comes a lust list. I have been eyeing some items. First are the Calvin Klein shorts. Comfort is so important. Even though they are more for lounging or for being used as active gear, they can be used to be made into a chic outfit. Use your imagination. Okay. So, Denim. Denim. Denim. Denim. I love denim. That's why I can’t seem to get away from the denim skirts and shorts I've seen in recent shops. Whether your denim shorts and skirts are distressed or plain old denim, I feel like denim is a must. When I go shopping for skirts, I find myself looking for dresses because why not? My favorite type of dress is the slip dress. Since I can't be bothered to wear a bra most days, slip dresses are great. I don't have to try hard to wear the perfect push up bra. Next up is BREAKING NEWS. I've decided to try out makeup. Everyone who knows be thinks I’m sick because of these new revelations. Before we get carried away, I'm starting with concealer. Anything else just becomes a burden. Then there is lipstick. I love red lipsticks. Shades of red are my favorite. I also like nude lipsticks. I haven't found the perfect nude lipstick yet, but I have found a few that I absolutely want to try. I am new to this after all, but I am still on the hunt. Any ideas? When a person looks good, they want to smell good. I already own Maison Margiela's Lazy Sunday Morning perfume from his REPLICA collection. It's one of the prettiest smells ever. At The Barber is one of my favorite colognes, but I personally would wear it. It's delicious. Can we shay shopping spree?

What about shoe game? White Chuck Taylor's are always a must and Nike's Air Max Thea can be worn in any season. Sandals with block heels are my favorites and my go to. They're comfortable and easy to walk in. Rihanna released slides for her FENTY x PUMA line. They're so pretty and I have been staring at them since they were released. Then there are bags. In the summer, I don't like to carry with large bags. They make me feel like I'm suffocating in the heat. I try to purchase small bags for that reason. Right now, I am in love with horseshoe shaped bags. *Inserts heart-eye emoji*Lastly, everyone needs accessories. I prefer sunglasses for the season to come. Ray-Ban is great for all types of glasses. My favorite are the aviators. What's not to love? 

I hope you enjoyed my first ever lust list! I'm thrilled for what's to come in the coming season. I hope all is well and you get a season full of laughter and love.

All the love as always. xx
