CLASSICAL MISFIT

CLASSICAL MISFIT

Classical misfit, that’s one way I would describe my style. Sometimes I’ll dress modest, other times I’ll go edgy, but most of the time I’ll end up merging these two opposing styles. If you ask me, I think the modern mix of pearls, skulls, and studs was a brilliant idea. I may be twenty years old now, but that doesn’t mean I’ll stop experimenting with my style any time soon. Thanks to accessorizing, I’ll always be able to get my classical vibes from pearls, and my misfit vibes from skulls.

Whether I like it or not, I’ll be turning 20 this weekend. Friday will be my last day of being nineteen and clueless. After that, I’ll be 20 and sophisticated. Just kidding, no matter what age I turn, I’ll always be clueless about something. Anyways before I make a wish and blow out my candles, I wanted to share a couple of things I’ve learnt this past year. I know what you’re probably thinking, what type of wisdom could a nineteen year old share? Even though I still have not been able to master the proper form of taking a selfie, I have grasped some helpful information about life. First, through all the stress and hard work that we go through everyday, we seem to forget that time passes by quicker than we believe. Like I’ve said before, I advise you all to remember to live in the moment. Second, I’ve learnt that I really dislike change, but I’ve also matured a bit more because of it. However, I’ll probably always dislike change because of how stubborn I am. All in all, my nineteenth year was a pretty great year. If I’m lucky, I hope that by next year I’ll be mature enough to enjoy the taste of coffee and know how to take a proper selfie.

Be ready to roll with the punches!
Okay so I’m the last person who should be talking about staying caffeinated. I’ll never understand why I’m always captured by the beautiful aroma of coffee, yet I absolutely cannot stand the taste of it. I’m guessing that it because I’m still not mature enough for it, right? Anyways, I finally had the time to sit down and read a small portion of #GirlBoss and I absolutely loved it. First, let me just say that Sophia Amoruso’s sense of humor instantly drew me in during her introduction. So you may ask, how do I become a girl boss? Well, the first step to become a girl boss is to always be ready to take on the world. Okay, maybe I’m being a bit dramatic, but you know what I mean. With exams and homework, I’ll usually drain myself and I’ll end up dozing off during one of my classes. It’s bananas for others to believe that I’ll always be ready to take one the world. I mean, how can someone always be ready, if the majority of students/workers usually get less that eight hours of sleep? The answer is caffeine! If you’re anything like me, substitute coffee for chocolate or tea. Just remember to limit the amount of chocolate you have so you can avoid any unfortunate breakouts. Also, please try and STAY AWAY from energy drinks, or cut down on them. Sure one might be alright, but you don’t want to become too dependent on these type of drinks. Remember, girl boss/guy boss’ are independent. All in all, if you’re ever struggling to stay awake, caffeinate yourself with healthy options. And most of all, sleep as much as you can so you’ll wake up ready to take on the world.
P.S. Don’t overdue it with the caffeine. I’m definitely not a nutritionist, but I’m pretty sure that too much of it can’t be healthy.
METALLIC FALL

METALLIC FALL

Who said fall had to be dull? The summer may be long gone, but that doesn’t mean your pop of color should go too.
Welcome to fall everyone, for this week’s post, I’ll try to keep it short and simple. However, I would like to make two clarifications first. Don’t worry, it’s not as serious as it sounds. First, this season is not just about pumpkin spice lattes and legwarmers. And, this isn’t just a transition season from warm to cool weather… This season, whether it’s looking for a new statement piece or a new nail polish, mattes and metallics will most definitely be at the top of my hunt list. Also, since I’m not a huge fan of traditional fall colors, I’ll be improvising with different tones that’ll be appropriate for this crispy season… Ladies and gentlemen, fall has arrived, what colors will you be using to keep this season alive?

What does it take to be considered a girl boss? Power? Confidence? Intelligence? When I think of girl boss, I imagine someone who’s not afraid to take risk. I imagine someone who is glowing with confidence and pride. Have you ever heard of a store called Nasty Gal? A few months ago I ran across various Instagram posts about a book called “#GIRLBOSS.” Until today, I found out that this book was written by Sophia Amoruso, the founder and CEO of Nasty Gal! OMG, it’s no wonder why Nasty Gal was sharing posts about the book! Anyways, after reading about this, I realized that rather than being thought of as the next Steve Jobs, women like Sophia are now creating their own titles. Let’s give it up for girl power. So, what does it take to be a girl boss? To be a girl boss (or boss in general) you have to be…

Sadly, I’m still not fully sure how to answer this question. Since I still haven’t gotten the chance to get my hands on this book, I’ll have to continue and answer, “What it takes to be considered a boss?” some other time. For now though, I encourage you all to take on the challenge and join the movement of becoming a “boss” at anything you do.

As I continue with my investigation, I would like to clarify that this post is not intended to exclude men. I am not here to create a division, instead I’m here to create an incentive for everyone to strive for success.

STYLE ISSUES: 10 MINUTE OUTFITS

STYLE ISSUES: 10 MINUTE OUTFITS

Untitled #46
Books, Starbucks, and good looking backpacks, these are only a few items that get college student through the day. I may be superficial for saying this, but the appearance of a backpack is important. Listen, I love the feeling I get out of wearing an amazing outfit, but I also love the feeling I get when I get a good grade on an exam. Unfortunately, some days I don’t have enough time to pick out an outfit, so I end up grabbing random items from my closet. Just like bad hair days, bad outfit days exist too. So you may ask, how can I avoid this type of fashion faux pas? The answer is, find an appealing backpack! This way, all the attention will  be drawn to your backpack, and your outfit will most likely be overshadowed. Also, pick a backpack that matches your everyday style, so it won’t be too obvious that you’re trying to cover up your outfit. School is stressful, so don’t torture yourself if you can’t put together an awesome outfit in 10 minutes. Instead, look for a backpack that will save you from having another bad outfit day.
