Motivation Monday!

Note to self, you're doing a fine job! It's no secret that we as the human race are naturally just hard on ourselves. We are our own worst critics. I especially think that now more than ever, with the social media that consumes us; the filters, photoshop, and materialistic values we see, it's much harder to learn to love ourselves and appreciate the value of being our own person. I had a thought the other day and I realized to myself that our future generation is going to have tough times trying to love themselves in their own skin. We are surrounded by a generation where we focus on having the perfect curves, big lips, colored eyes, "make up on fleek", etc. That's definitely not how it should be. I don't want my future children to constantly be in a battle of trying to uphold society's standards of what they should look like. It's very easy to stare at pages of Instagram and start comparing yourself to the likes, followers, and the perfection we see in a photo. I do it to myself all the time. But what we're missing is that if we were all the same, then we would never be unique and different.
Start with looking inside of yourself, the values, and the standards you uphold to yourself. Write down 5 things that you absolutely love about your personality. Find the things that set you apart from the others. Once you find them out, LOVE them, embrace them and know that that is what makes you YOU. Then look at yourself in the mirror and pick five beauty traits that you have. Look at them as if you've never noticed them before. See that you were given your nose for a reason or your hair for a reason. I used to hate my big lion frizzy hair so much! I always had to straighten it or do something to it because I never wanted anyone to publicly see the mess it was. And it wasn't until recently that I've started to embrace my natural hair because there are others out there who love it. 

They are the people who convinced me that it is not as bad as I thought it was. I naturally compare myself to others, if I had colored eyes or if I was a little bit more busty then maybe I'd be happier..right? It's then when I look deeper at myself that I realize that I AM ME, and I am me for a reason. I can't compare my journey or my growth to someone else's and just because it looks like they're further than me doesn't mean that I am not going anywhere. For all the bloggers and such, don't compare yourself to the likes or the followers that you believe you don't have. Just because you aren't there yet DOES NOT mean that you aren't doing just fine. Believe me when I say that opportunities arise and people are watching, so don't get down on yourself. Keep on doing what you're doing and know that you are doing just fine! YOU'RE DOING THE BEST YOU CAN! You are you, love yourself and embrace it.
HAPPY MONDAY!

The Boyfriend's Sweater


Call me crazy but when I want something really bad (fashion wise) I try really hard to get it. Hence, these fabulous creepers from Puma that I'm wearing in this outfit post! I loved them when I first saw Rihanna wear them on her ig and I was so excited to catch them on the right time when they went live on sale. Come to find out, they were limited edition and sold out in 3 hours! It's very rare when I do something like keep refreshing my browser for a pair of shoes but hey, the heart wants what it wants. I am a bit of a sneakerhead at heart (sometimes) and I love getting the opportunity to wear sneaks with casual outfits and still look chic. This cardigan was given to me from my bf, straight from his closet and I thought it was so cool! I just couldn't wait to wear it loosely with a cool graphic tee and my new shoes. Sometimes, simple IS best.

Pumpkin Picker


I can't remember the last time I was at a pumpkin patch and the sad part is I don't think I've EVER been to a pumpkin patch. So in blogger fashion, I made it my duty to get to one and of course, pose for #ootd pics. I fail as a blogger in the "love all things pumpkin" department because 1. I don't like coffee nor lattes, and 2. I've never tried a PSL or have the urge to. I know, I know, I'm different! Any how, let me stop obsessing over pumpkins and let's move along to the important part; the outfit! I really wish I was able to dress with scarfs and cute little boots but unfortunately the weather this weekend didn't agree. So I decided to stick to Fall warm colors like olive green and beige to suffice. I was super excited to finally get me some of these heeled sandals that I've been seeing all over so of course I had to wear them right away. This side slit dress is from Forever 21 and I like that it falls beautifully but also curves my body perfectly. The hat was added when I realized it might help me bat away the heat and hey, it actually worked out okay!
