Holly and I went up to Albuquerque last weekend to see one of our former roommates get married! I was also in charge of photographing the couple's portraits at the temple, and I got some pretty good ones. I couldn't be happier for my friend!
Ok! So I've been thinking of doing this for a while, but I wasn't sure how successful I'd be at selling my clothing online. I downloaded the Poshmark app and listed some items. It's all super cheap! Here are some of the items in my Poshmark closet: (Keep in mind that I'm 5'1", so some of these skirts/dresses may not be as long as they seem)
red floral dress $6
pink tweed dress $15
cream vintage blouse $5
gray vintage skirt $5
red skirt $6
blush lace skirt $10
coral skirt $5
And a couple of things I'm planning to add to the closet:
this eyelet shirt
I'm obviously new to this, so I'm still not sure if poshmark is the best option to sell(??) It seems like the bloggers with 1,000+ followers do really well when they sell their clothes on instagram, so I doubt that I'll have any luck there. Maybe I should create a separate "shop my closet" blog? Have you done this before? Any success? All suggestions are welcome! If I don't sell anything before we move in May/June then I plan to donate all these clothes.
Alright, so I made a video answering some Valentine/love related questions. I also reveal some big news, so go ahead and watch that. Sorry, it's kind of a long one. But it was originally twice as long. (Yuck!) If you'd like to make your own video, here is the link to the questions I used (I obviously didn't answer all of them). I once told myself that I didn't want to make any more vlogs until I got a new DSLR that has video, but it could be close to another year until I get a new camera. So! I'll just have to continue using my webcam for now.
Wow, remember when I would take photos of my outfits? I'd like to bring back that habit. I was a little nervous to take these photos since it's been a while and I'm out of practice, usually resulting in awkward posing. But these portraits came out remarkably well. Today was chillier than it has been for the past few weeks, and it was windy, which made me nervous for photos as well, but it turns out the wind kind of "complimented"my hair. (ha)
Earlier this week I realized that I haven't been listening to music as often as I used to. I listen to the radio in the car because I keep forgetting to charge my iPod and it's kind of a pain to keep switching CDs. (Another reason I listen to the radio: I don't want to be completely clueless when I watch new episodes of Glee...) I listened to my own music for a change, and I instantly felt better. I didn't even realize that I was feeling down/missing something in my life until I listened to "my" songs. Has anyone else experienced this? Isn't it nice to have your own personal playlists?
So, honestly, the real reason I was motivated to take photos today is to show you all my nails. Ah, they're so cute! Have y'all heard of Jamberry Nail Wraps? GET ON THAT. I'm wearing Reminisce and the Metallic Gold Pinstripe for my ring fingers. The pinstripe ones are actually transparent, and I'm wearing black polish underneath. So versatile. My favorite thing about these are that you don't have to wait for them to dry and they don't chip. And there are so many designs! Like I've mentioned before, I don't really like too many accessories, so nail art is perfect for me.

Job interviews are the worst. Job searching is the worst.
Grad life, am I right?
In other news, I'm sick of hearing about everyone's new year's resolutions to get fit. Like, I'm ok with people wanting to exercise. That's cool and all, but I guess I'm talking about blog posts that girls write that concentrate specifically on how much weight they put on since the holidays and how their weight has fluctuated throughout the year and blah blah blah. I literally DO NOT CARE. Ok, I understand that it's their blog and they can write about whatever the heck they want, I just wish that everyone loved their bodies, and accepted their bodies, and accepted other people's bodies. That last one the most, I think. I'm so sick of body shaming. I'm not saying that I don't need to work on self love myself. I think everyone struggles with that. No matter what your body type or weight, everyone wishes they could change something about their appearance. At least everyone that I've met. Comparison is inevitable.
This video says it all. Please do yourself a favor and watch!
Sorry about the cursing.
And here are some more awesome things I found on tumblr.
