Bad Friendships

There is a saying that goes something along the lines of “Friends are like stars, you don’t always see them, but you know they are always there”. But what happens when the star that symbolizes a friendship fades away?

Before I get going with the purpose of this post, I just wanted to ask you all how you are doing? I hope you are having an absolutely lovely day. I on the other hand have freezing rain outside my window, well not just my window, but let’s just say it’s gloomy and I want to go take a nap. That is actually a pretty good idea, I think I am going to take a nap after I write this, is that okay with you all? Haha  I can only ever take naps when it is cold and gloomy out, I do not know what it is, but I know I am probably not the only one who feels this way.

When a friendship starts loosing its spark, it is hard to accept. One person (in the friendship) may notice slight differences in how you both communicate, or the lack of effort one or both of you have in keeping the friendship intact. I wanted to bring this subject up because I have had to make a decision to keep certain people out of my life recently; whom I once thought brought me so much joy and happiness into my life. But I took a step back and saw the kind of person I was becoming. I did not recognize myself anymore. I was letting someone take advantage of me and I hardly realized it. I was letting the people who I was surrounded by influence my morals and what I really valued in life. This was TOXIC!

I do not know if any of you know that I am Christian. Now I know there has been a lot of negativity in the media highlighting some “Christians” and what they have been doing and what they believe. But first and foremost I do not want to force a relationship with God down your throat. Yes I will always speak about the good he has done in my life, but it is within reason. And that does not make me any less Christian for not going and preaching to people all the time. I get the feeling that Christian people have a bad reputation, but let me just say, NO ONE is the SAME. I treat everyone equally and a lot of Christians do, it is just the so called “bad one’s” we hear about. I bring this up because I had friends who did not respect the choices I was making because I want to be the best person I can be in the eyes of my God. It was hurting me because I had respected the questionable choices they had made, but when it was time for them to show the same respect, I got bashed and made fun of. What kind of friends are those, if you could even call them that? The point that I am trying to make is that do not keep people in your life that don’t respect your values. It is that simple, you do not need that in your life.

Sure the friendships I had did have their sparkle at most times, but when it goes out, it is out for good. What I mean by that is there were great memories that we made and they will never be forgotten. I do not wish my worst thoughts on them because what is the use? Sometimes people grow apart and you just can’t do anything to fix it.

I truly felt alone in these friendships a lot recently and up to the ending of the friendship. There were people who sort of came in and replaced me which is okay now since the friendship is gone. I am all for having a lot of friends, but how many can you say are your best friends? I hope my ex best friend realizes that I do not wish the worst thoughts on her, we had great times, and that our friendship was something really special. We both made mistakes, some more than others, but it is in the past. I hope you are able to live out your dreams, and live it out with people who are better suited for who you are, and where you are going.

I want you ALL to look into your life and make sure you have people in your life who make you better, lift you up, support you in school, and are overall the light to your smiles. As cheesy as it sounds your friends should light you up like the stars you are.

I am sorry that I have not been writing much, I have switched jobs, and university is crazy. I love you ALL, and I will see you when I see you

Stay beautiful!

Let’s Talk About Shoes Baby!

(Yes my title did have some Pitch Perfect inspiration behind it, it is totes aca perfect!)

I’ve had a splendid, absolutely marvelous, darling idea today. I’m going to talk about every girl’s best friend, besides diamonds, shoes! The right pair of shoes as we know it can make or break a look. I don’t know about you, but I rather be making looks than breaking them. It’s no secret that gladiator sandals are on fleek this summer…yes I used a word that I normally think is so silly, but yolo! Haha. I personally am such a fan of this trend. These shoes are so easy to pair with everything and you don’t always have to opt for the normal heel with an outfit. Heels look cute, but I hate wearing them. So sue me! I like to be comfortable and that’s my motto I live by. Trendy and fashionable meets comfort. I do also love how there is not only one kind of gladiator shoe, there really is something for everyone. You do not even have to do the full gladiator, you could just do the up to the ankle one. Let’s take a look:

This look is from JustFab and these are just so fabulous. It really gives a certain je ne sais quoi to a clean and simple look. These shoes are available at JustFab for $39.95 and are called “Marcelino”. I’d go buy them if I were you.

Then for the bold and eccentric we have the “Lennon”. There’s not much to say about these beauties other than, “Where do I swipe my card?” These are priced at JustFab for $44.95.

Now here is some more inspiration for outfit pairings: (I do not take any credit)

Vanessa looking fierce as always. Are we taking a time machine back to the 70s yet?

I am in love with this look, I would wear this on the daily. So simple, sleek, and chic! If you are looking to buy something like the dress featured I would check out my favorite store American Eagle. I will provide a link to a dress that is almost like the one above, but search through their site. It is so addicting. Love Love Love!

Late Night Nonsense~The Start of Something New!

So I’m laying in bed with nothing to do on a wednesday night, which is now an early thursday and I have this sudden urge to write. But I want to start this new addition to my blog called, “Late Night Nonsense.” Every thursday or friday night, I want to designate a time where I can talk to you guys, who are still out there, about anything and everything. The nights might vary due to my work schedule, but it’s summer and I am going to make some time.

My school year has been quite crazy and it was hard keeping a balance between work, schoolwork, and my social life. I’m not gonna lie, my social life came first most of the time, but I really need to change that for next semester. I haven’t been living up to my full potential lately, is anyone with me? My mind has been all over the place lately and I just can’t seem to figure out what my calling in life is. I really am questioning everything I’m doing. I am hating all of my English classes I’ve been taking and I sadly came to terms with the fact that I am not meant to be an English major anymore. Now I have this urge to want to work for the CIA. I know right! NewBeautyGuru meets agent! Haha no, but I want to try and pursue international relations/political science. I took a political science class my first semester and strangely liked it. I’m not so into politics and maybe it was the teacher who made the class enjoyable, but why not give it a shot? I am in college, a time when I am supposed to be free to experiment. I just hate going to my advisor and telling him all of these changes I want to make because I change my mind so often.

Last night I was talking with my mother and I had gotten a text from one of my friends who needed advice. My mom quickly told me that my true calling is counseling. At first I laughed, but then I realized I am pretty great at giving advice even if the other person does not want to hear it at the time. And then I realized again that I hate psychology with a passion, and I need to stop dating psych majors. Seriously! Every guy I have been on a date with has been a psych major, do I have a sign on my back saying “All psychology majors come date me!?” I don’t think so, and it has not been working for me either. At this point, I am done with guys and need to focus on bettering myself. Guys will always be around weither we want them around or not.

Why is figuring out one’s path so difficult? I wish there was a book that outlined everyone’s futures to give us all some relief from stressing out over everything. At this point in my life I am unsure of every little thing, which bothers me so much. I have always been so sure of myself and it’s all been blown to pieces. At least I know I am not the only one who feels this way and I just have to have faith that it will all work out. God has a plan, I have to sit back and try to enjoy the ride.

What else do I do when I am just laying in bed? It’s only fitting that I am listening to some get up and dance in your underwear kind of music! I’ll link my favorite songs, that may or may not get me out of my bed and make me dance shamefully to it in my pj’s below. But you guys didn’t need to know all of that, I’ll just give you the music.

You are going to want to listen to all of those songs, my favorites are 1,3, and 4.

Goodnight Loves!

Check out Some of My Older Posts!

So it seems like a lot of people do not look at my blog anymore, which is fine, I write this blog because I love to do it. But my older posts seemed to be the highlight of my blog. I also think my earlier posts were better. Preferably the ones about Ariana Grande and Fifth Harmony, or just read everything 🙂 lol. Go check them out if you hadn’t already :)! 

Shall I compare…

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Eyes of hazel, hair of gold, heart of purity.
Shall I say I love thee?

On darkest of nights, you bring me light.
You compel me to voice the truth.
How can you bring me out of my darkest daze?
Shall I say I love thee?

Love is blind, but yet I see clearly.
Love is crazy, but that is joy.
I do not care what others say,
Shall I say I love thee?

Your imperfections make me see your beauty even more.
How can we be so opposite, but so right?
You reveal your soul; in return I give you mine.
Shall I say I love thee?

In the midst of our stormy fights, our love perseveres.
On the sunniest of days our love shines through.
Our love is a wondrous roller coaster, something I never want to end.
Love never dies even in hardship.
One never knows the definition of love,
But our love is something we cannot deny.
Love is the feeling you get when you never want to leave its side, your lover’s side.
Love is the mystery you start to unravel.
Love is the willingness to keep it alive and well.
Love waits because it is never too late.
My love is you.
I can say I love thee.

So I thought I’d change up my new post. This is a poem that I wrote for my English class, it had to start of with the first line. Hint, Hint, my English class is about Shakespeare this year and I absolutely love it. I know this is not perfect, but I thought I would show you a more deep and personal side of me and my writing. I hope you enjoy!

I’m just loving the comic book clothing, it just stands out from any other piece. I know I am saying I love a lot if things, but do I have to chose? No, it’s all about being someone different! I love how this dress says sick of men, I don’t think I could ever get sick of them, or do I just like looking at them? lol. Wow, I’m totally boy crazy, it’s cray cray. Ugh I’ve never said cray cray before, I guess my inner preppy is coming out haha 🙂 if you watch PLL you know that recently Aria wore a comic dress to die for, it was amazing!! I honestly never seen any outfit I didn’t like on the liars, they always know how to rock the current trends. So, I don’t see this trend dying anytime soon, and this dress might not come cheap, but there is an alternative which is Rainbow, it’s an awesome store and has great comic clothing for great prices. Style your inner geek and be fabulous!! 😉
