Hello everyone!


Jeez, I've been terrible about posting comments/replying to comments lately! I feel terrible

:( I'm going to try to do my best to catch up! Please excuse my rudeness if you can my dears...


School has just been...ehh lately. It hasn't been terrible, but it hasn't been fantastic either. Sometimes I just get depressed though because it feels as though I can't to anything right. My school work, socialize with people, put together good outfits. Sigh. I always start to feel so insecure when I go back to school the beginning of each year. During the summer time I just wear whatever I want, freely, no one to judge or compare myself to. It seems like when I go back to school, however, that I'm surrounded by all of these stunning girls that I just can't compare to. Often I feel as though since I'm not as naturally pretty as they are, I can beat them at the one thing that I'm good at. Dressing up. Dressing up gives me power, it gives me confidence. It seems when I go to school in just jeans that my confidence level wanes... I feel bad about myself all day and I'm constantly comparing myself less attractive than other girls.


By no means am I saying that I dress up to please other people. Oh no, no ,no! I love to dress up for myself and only for myself. All I'm saying is that when I don't dress up, I feel less confident in myself. And for me, confidence and self acceptance have always been things I've coveted!


Well, I don't know exactly where that big long spiel came from! Sorry you all had to hear my endless ramblings...haha. See you all tomorrow! Hope you're all doing wonderful :)

P.S. I don't know if you all noticed, but I did dye my hair a slightly darker brown! I quite like it, but it seems as though no one has really noticed. I'll take that as a good thing and assume that it looks very natural which is what I want, hehe.

I was going to ask about the hair! This is the first post that I noticed it, but it definitely looks darker-- natural, still, but darker :) I did the same thing around this time last year and it was so much fun to try something different. I feel like I don't want to have to wait for my hair to naturally darken again once fall hits (which it always does) and I get antsy to dye it naturally darker-- such a fall-ish thing, I think! Anyways, it looks fabulous!

I like your hair straightened! (: Hmm... Whenever I feel insecure-ish, I always tell myself that if you act like you're beautiful/confident or whatever, you'll come off that way.

Aw, cute!!! I'm in love with your dress!!
I hope you start feeling better about school. I used to feel the same way sometimes. Try not to get so down, and don't worry about the other girls! Don't compare yourself to anyone, just be yourself. I know it seems hard sometimes. And you are very adorable! Don't ever think you're not!

Hope this cheers you up! :)
