“Hard is trying to rebuild yourself, piece by piece, with no instruction book, and no clue as to where all the important bits are supposed to go.” – Nick Hornby (via goodreads)

Edit (as of 01/01/2017): This may sound like a sad excuse, but my college expectations have forced me to go on another hiatus, albeit a short one.  However, I have returned and plan on sticking to a new schedule with reedited and polished versions of past posts, as well as new existing posts.  Let’s make 2017 another year filled with rants, fashion tips, and all things relatable – thanks!


Beloved readers, I would like to apologize for my absence, as well as introduce my blog’s new look and direction.  Originally, the blog began with grand plans with no focus.  Whenever I felt inspired, I would crank out out two-thousand word posts that made no sense.  After leaving for a year, I have come to terms with the fact that my blog and I may never become like Olivia Palermo and her beautiful blog, but I do want to make a lifestyle brand catered to any girl (and boy) who likes books, fashion, food, home décor, makeup, and life.

While the other topics are self-explanatory, life will be a section filled with posts discussing a variety of topics that do not necessarily fit into the other categories.  Even though I am a college student trying to find scholarships and figure out an uncertain future, I hope this blog becomes a safe haven for anyone who is struggling or has struggled in making it through a day (or two).
