Ankle Boots I Wish I Could Wear This Fall

Fall Ankle BootsNow that I live in Florida all my ankle boots are nicely packed in their boxes in a storage container. I know I know I’m sad too. The weather in Florida just doesn’t get cold enough to wear my ankle boots. Last winter it got to about 40 degrees but honestly when I stepped outside in my ankle boots to go to my nephew’s girlfriend birthday party, I had to run inside to change because my feet were so hot. I’m one of those girls who can’t wear my ankle boots unless it’s really cold and Florida’s 40 degree weather isn’t Connecticut’s 40 degree weather. I miss wearing ankle boots y’all but I don’t miss the cold weather lol. Every time I visit my favorite online stores to see what’s in style I always have to stop myself and remember that I don’t live in Connecticut anymore and buying these boots are an absolute waste of money. One of my favorite stores to buy boots at is surprisingly Forever21. I have to say that they are not only affordable but they are really good quality. I got these boots (pictured here) two years ago and they are still in perfect condition and I wore them almost everyday and did all my errands in them when I lived in as a nanny in New York.

Four New Fall TV Shows I’m Excited For

Fall TV is back this week and I’m so excited to finally have something to watch. I have a confession guys, I watch way to much TV and my favorite Fall shows are life lol haha! A lot of my favorites are returning this week like This Is Us, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Mick, Scorpion, Empire, Star, Modern Family, Chicago PD & Fire and Designated Survivor. Lol you’re probably saying by now okay this girl doesn’t have a life lol. I swear my days are booked between days at work or doing my internship. So once 8pm rolls around, I settle down in front the TV with some dinner and just decompress by watching TV. It’s so therapeutic guys lol  well in my own little way of course.

Just A Little Bit Of My Heart

A couple weeks ago I experienced a major shift in my life and I’m still trying to pick up the pieces and understand what happened. It’s so crazy how one minute everything can seem perfectly fine and then next thing you know your drowning in your own emotions because you can’t handle how life is constantly biting you in the ass. I’ve been feeling so defeated recently. Every aspect of my life has been a struggle. Emotionally I am distraught and a wreck. I feel like my entire world and what I know has crashed down. I haven’t reached rock bottom but I feel myself slipping closer and closer to it. I’m honestly feel sad. Everyone keeps telling me to focus on my goals. Don’t worry everything will be okay but I don’t feel like it is. My heart is telling me otherwise. Recently, I was told that I always have to remember that not everyone who smiles in your face has your best interest at heart. And honestly there are no truer words. I experienced this shift in my life. The shift shattered me emotionally. I cried so hard on the inside, while my exterior told another story. I hid my true emotions and remained stoic in the face of betrayal.  I’ve decided not to be bitter. I’ve decided to not be petty and angry but to forgive and continue believing that through the stink people can change. There is a reason why God constantly gives us many chances so I have to live by his example.

Commitment Phobia: What Makes Relationships So Scary To The Millennials

Hey, fellow millennial (if you’re not a millennial then can relate to you as well). You might have noticed that our generation has a bit of a problem with relationships. How many people do you know who are either not doing the whole relationship thing right now, or who are doing it but are having all kinds of drama? 

It’s a far cry from our parents’ and grandparents’ generations where courtship, engagement, commitment and then marriage were the name of the game. Previous generations went on long walks or out to the cinema, got to know each other’s families (and you just know a lot of those families were comprised of 2-4 children with a dog and a comfortable station wagon), and then started picking out wedding invitation designs. 

Not similar to our generation at all! In fact, recent data from the Pew Research Center showed that millennials are far less likely to get married than any other generation in modern history. It got me thinking – what’s up with that? Why are we as a generation so commitment phobic? Just what is it that makes relationships so scary to the millennials?Millennials View Post

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: My Favorites & What I Bought

It’s the most wonderful time of the year guys. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has started. For those who love to shop, this sale is a big deal because Nordstrom puts all their new stuff, and them BAM marks them down for a couple days. So from now until July 20th, if you have the Nordstrom credit or debit card you can exclusively shop the Nordstrom Anniversary sale before it opens to the public and score all the good stuff. Last night, I stayed up until almost 5 am just browsing the entire sale and I picked out some of my favorites and also ordered a ton of things. Let’s just say my bank account is definitely going to feel this one lol! My Nordstrom’s cart totaled items in the double digits. Ahh this sale is soo good that you can’t afford to miss all the good deals. Just a little note: If you have early access because you’re a cardholder, I highly recommend that you shop now before the sale goes live for the public because a lot of things sell out fast. Second, if you aren’t a cardholder and are a fan of Nordstrom’s please please apply for the debit or credit card. It only takes a few minutes and you can sign up here right now. Third, be smart about shopping this sale. If you like something don’t just get it make sure that you can actually afford it and that you’ll actually wear it. One blogger I follow on Instagram even suggested by certain items in 2’s just in case one doesn’t fit because everything sells out very fast. Also, use this sale to stock up on jeans. A lot of my favorite brands like Topshop, Free People and 7 for all mankind jeans go on sale. A good pair of jeans that is affordable is hard to come by so I know that once they’re on sale during the #NSale I’m buying them. Check out some of my favorites and what I bought below in my shopping guide.
