Mini Life Update & OOTD

Happy Wednesday:

This post might be a bit of a long one – but do not fret! I do have an OOTD Video at the end of this post.

Firstly, I want to apologize to my blogger babes – I have been reading & catching up on your posts, but I haven’t had the time to comfortably sit down and comment on them. My personal life has taken priority over everything else at this moment, so I’ve been trying to squeeze in reading posts here & there, whenever I get the chance. I won’t lie, I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately. I feel like it’s that time of the year – I’ve been stuck in the mood of wanting to stay on break, eat, be with my family, and enjoy ‘me’ time. I’ve been putting a lot of effort into my blog the past few months that I’ve been completely spoiled by this mini break; and to think that Christmas and New Years is coming up. It’s just that time.

I’ve also been in my feels with the fact that I am going to be shaving bald in a few weeks. The plan is to commit between December 26-28th. This journey is really serious and important to me – I can’t help but have constant thoughts about it. I’m extremely scared and nervous about shaving bald. It’s a huge life changing moment, I don’t really know what to expect with this change.

The reason why I haven’t been able to post up photos is mainly due to the fact that my photographer, Oscar, picked up an extra commitment so our schedules have been conflicting. I’m also in the works of creating a mini holiday collection for my Etsy shop [I make jewelry and am super stoked about these pieces]. I’m also excited for the lookbook I have planned for this collection – It’s going to be great.

On December 15th, I will be starting my Parsons x Teen Vogue Fashion Course and that’s another commitment that’s been on my mind. Oh, and we can’t forget that it’s officially crunch time at my University. I’ve been drowning in papers, projects, plays, novels, and soon to be finals.

Life…life’s just been really hectic.

A week before doing wardrobe for the third production at my University, I filmed this all black OOTD. I had tons of fun editing this one. Even though I’ve been enjoying this break of not worrying about my blog, I do miss creating. The beauty of this blog, and blogging and vlogging in general, is that it’s an outlet, a place where I can be free, be myself, and let my creativity flow. This is why I am totally stoked for getting back on my grind. I’m yearning to create.

I hope you guys are doing well, have you been feeling the pressures of this time of year?

Here is my All Black OOTD:


‘Till next time,

  1. I know how you feel about enjoying time without thinking about your blog. I always wonder if I’m balancing my life out right. I feel bad for not always living in the moment and not giving every gun my full attention. In the end it always comes down to what makes us happy and I feel the way you feel about creating things. && I loved the outfit. You can never go wrong with black. The jacket was perfection. 👌👌 I hope You have a great week. Enjoy your break with your family! 😊 xoxo

    1. I’m so glad you can relate. It’s been such a blessing getting to know you! I’m so happy to have gals in my life that completely understand this way of living! Finding balance is always hard & creating does wonders, I seriously cannot wait to pick up one of your beanies! I’d also love some ear warmers. Thank you for both reading, watching & commenting. I always smile whenever I see a comment from you, Ashley. You’re such a beautiful soul! I hope you have the best day ever! Sending you and your handsome son all of my love! 💕

      2. I’m glad you feel that way, I feel the same about you! And yes, your charisma is contagious. ❤ I hope you're having an amazing day, love! Happy Friday!


    1. Thank you so much! It is very time consuming and requires a lot of energy which can be a challenge sometime. But I love this community so much – it’s worth the energy! I feel like taking a break from all aspects of life is good for the soul, people definitely need breaks to refresh themselves. I hope you are having an amazing day, love! Happy Friday! ❤


    1. You are completely right. I feel like I learned that on m break. I also realize that I am a lot more social when I am away from blogging. I love blogging, but it can take up so much energy from you. Glad I made you proud by wearing all black. 🙂 There’s absolutely nothing better than an all black ootd. ❤ Sending my love!
