“There is no passion to be found playing small—in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” –Nelson Mandela

Wow. Ive always been a huge fan of LaQuan Smith and also a huge fan of ASOS. Them combining forces is EVERYTHING. Both this dress and thigh high boots are from their collection. Oh and it also comes in plus size. I love how they shot this lookbook. Can we discuss how I did my own make up and wig for this? I'm sooo proud of myself because I'm forever impatient with make up and hair and I finally took the time to watch a Youtube video on how to properly put foundation on and do a wing eye. I used tape. That was the secret incase any of you don't want to watch a full make up tutorial haha. Also, my I have on e.l.f. teal tease eyeliner.

"Your future is found in your daily routine. Successful people do daily what others do occasionally." -Paula White

Every family member or friend knows if they want to get me a gift but aren't really sure what I want, it's a pair of chenille socks. My best friend got me these ones I'm wearing for my birthday. I loooove love love a good fuzzy sock. I think my sock obsession started when I was 17-ish. I would buy regular cute socks with clouds and whatever was cute printed on them and then it became fuzzy socks. Now that the holidays are coming up, I can't stop. Someone save me. Jr's Rudolph nose came off of his set that I bought him last year so I'm going to buy him a new pair this year. Maybe this time I'll buy the socks with Rudolph printed on, like these ones from the GAP. He never reads my blog so he'll never know I'm planning on it. haha

"A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it, it just blooms." – Zen Shin

Oh just you know another casual day waiting for my Little Caesars pizza. haha. They remind me of when I use to live in NY. We had one on the block I use to live at and when I'd almost be out of money, I'd eat nothing but their $5 pizza for the day to hold me over. On another note, can you tell I love camo?

"A good idea can become a great idea when it is given focus time." -John C. Maxwell

I think that quote is so important. Most of my career, especially in the beginning, I was all over the place wearing multiple hats and doing so many tasks. I felt like I HAD to to get where I wanted to be. I later realized when I hone in on ONE thing I really want to accomplish and focus the majority of my energy on it, it would be more successful than if I were to half ass it. This past Summer I finally decided I wanted to get back to basics and hone in on what I enjoy. On another note, how great is this wig? 9I5A0267

"People who see the big picture expand their experience because they expand their world. As a result, they accomplish more than narrow-minded people." - John C. Maxwell

We stopped at a chocolate factory in Interlaken, Switzerland. Of course I picked like 6 different flavors and ended up really only obsessing over the caramel filled one. Swiss chocolates are everything you'd imagine plus more. Do you see my cute nails? Can you believe they're press ons bitch! YES! For this trip I was like I don't feel like getting acrylics, I'm just going to get some press ons and call it a day. So every time I changed outfits, I changed my nails. Don't judge me, aesthetic. LMAO. How gorgeous is this scenery? This was the same day we rode the mountain coaster.

Right after taking this picture in the middle of Switzerland, my boyfriend attempted to teach me how to drive stick shift. First, we started driving on a military only road and had no idea until a military jeep came up to us and told us we couldn't be there. Then, we attempted again on a road where the were lots of cow and obviously for me, this was very difficult as I constantly get distracted by cute animals. I pushed through though and I actually did better than I thought I would. The first time he tried to teach me was in Iceland a few years back, at night time, in a slanted parking lot. That didn't go so well. lmao. Anyways, I'm excited to move back to NY only because of the in-between, semi-cool weather. You know there weather where it's not scorching hot and humid but also not freezing with snowfall. Photo Sep 27, 12 33 25 PM
