The Fruits Have It!


For the Most part, lately I’ve been feeling spring, thinking about summer, and spring all of the same time. Half of the year, i live in a sub zero temp (called Iowa). I am so tired of this whole winter (i mean seriously how many times have you heard that on Facebook?) I’ve been thinking a lot about the freshness of spring, and what can be more fun than fruit, (personally I’m obsessed with fruit bags) I’ve complied a bunch of fun fruit bags and a few clothing items, for you to to dive into, to get ready for your spring + summer wardrobes (long live spring with its freshness) and (summer with its endless Yard Sales + Estate Sales….). Remember, if your out and about to don’t hesitate to put that fun print or bag in your step.

What’s On My Mind- Current Favorites

whats on my mind

What’s been on my mind lately? I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and a lot of reading, others blogs, to dive deep into my internal thoughts on fashion, on life, on myself. I’ve been kind of of compiling a list of what’s in going on in my head right now. I have been watching a lot of documentaries on fashion, on writers, to see what there inner psych is. Collecting quotes from others who inspire me, Ive been really inspired by a few people who I really like the freedom of the people who they are. I found this sweet shirt by Jeremy Scott, (from Marlena on self constructed freak) I’ve been feeling such less like an adult, lately it just sucks sometimes when you are an adult, because you suffer with bills, you suffer with high fees of everything. I know I am facing that, (why did I get those damn credit cards again). That kind of of really leads into my next point, on money, I look at others around me and think “it must be nice to have money to go to places and do things when I spend most of my money and resources just to survive”. – In all honesty, that’s not what it is, I keep thinking I go to school, I live in America, I live in a wealthy country, we are just being selfish now aren’t we?



            Secondly I have been thinking a lot about Thrifting, I had been watching a super wonderful documentary called advanced style which follows eccentric ladies from New York city, and there personal style, its crazy good what these ladies, have to discuss with you. It features popular people like Iris Apfel. It talks about basically you can have style at any age, and that you are an artist with style. “People are afraid, People just want to be like everyone else, and want to do what everything is doing”- Iris Apfel, my awesome friend Tziporah Salamon, told me recently (who she was featured in advanced style) “Iowa does have its charm scout out those places such as salvation army, goodwill’s and so forth that give you your charm its not just new york”.  Which has me really thinking about what I love about fashion, these ladies have been pushing me to think about blogging in some other way that’s it more about fashion, and more about labels , but it is your identity. Your style is your identity. “The Majority of Americans Don’t Dress” – Tziporah Salamon The whole idea of this, its more of something that has pushed me to think about what gives me my style charm? Clothes are my life (if you are following me on instagram you know that Im in love with vintage). That’s why Salvation Army has been such a charmer for me, That’s what makes me so successful, in my budget because you cant just go to Barneys NY and pick up Prada loafers, but I can go to salvation army and look at that paisley dress I am dying to wear.




Thirdly I had been thinking of new interesting things about winter, winter depresses me I suffer badly from seasonal depression, which a lot of Americans suffer from but I had seen these gloves in a recent refinery 29 article, these gloves stuck out for me but they are out of stock. But that would make a great DIY.- lets do it (soon I hope I need to scout out leather gloves).



Fourthly and lastly what am I watching recently? – You guessed it the virgin suicides (as for a recent love of finding this out via, Tavi aka Rookie Magazine Editor you know her right?) I had been re-watching this movie, I had read the book along time ago, and watching many more James woods movies (like and your name is Jonah) to think that we are only human, and that we all feel emotions that we are in fact, looking for much more of a interest than anything, and I feel a sense in The Virgin Suicides that these girls, were all looking for some sort of sense that they wanted something more meaningful in there lives, but restraints cut them off (such as there crazy parents) but as Tavi said, a quote from Rodger Ebert said about this film These parents look gruesome to us. All parents look gruesome to kids, and all of their attempts at discipline seem unreasonable. The teenage years of the Lisbon girls are no better or worse than most teenage years. This is not the story of daughters driven to their deaths.”  Although in my own opinion I feel a deep sense of that, you know that I do in a away feel like parental restraints play a huge ordeal in this film. Which goes back to my second thing on my mind, is diving into deeper fashion and what that truly means to me. .




            I hope you don’t all wonder where my content has gone and think what is she really saying? Its just for me ive been doing a lot of thinking and writing and personal story searching for content, and this is where I feel comfortable discussing what’s on my mind lately and what is in my heart.

Top Blogge Essentials Things you may Want.



Hey Guys, I’m back with a new post, well I’m back with some more #October Obsessions. This little post is about have you ever considered starting a blog? One of my many obsessions now is writing for my blog, and it has kept me really focused and pushing my creativity to come up with new ideas for my blog. Well today I’m going to share my ability, as i have been purely growing in my blog and things i’ve been really using when it comes to blogging and figuring out things along the way.

First Essential for your new-found love of blogging : Is a tablet, id suggest the Ipad, it’s not only has great portability but it’s a mac product, (as i have been using apple products for a long time it makes it the best) its light weight and durable and features many other things you can do with it, which i will get to in a later point. Plus it helps you write your blog on the go, writing for me has been difficult to keep up so i have been really focusing on writing everyday if possible on new topics i’ve really started to write on the go to. Thats why the iPad is perfect. Plus its perfect for searching inspiration, pintrest, and many other social media outlets.

Second Essential is a good working camera,  {for me its a bit different i went to school for photography but i am longer practicing in my field of study due to a career change} I use personally a canon30D but i found this stunning Samsung camera that i absolutely fell in love with. its a great focus point and shoot model and comes in a gorgeous white color and it’s pricey. When you are willing to spend lots of money for a great shooting camera for those wonderful pictures of all your fashion you’ll be posting.

Third Essential you will need in your new technical lifestyle, Will be social media, social media plays a HUGE part of the blogging industry, (Ps are you following me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Pintrest) see as you can see, the social media keeps you majorly connected to designers, people other bloggers and worlds of information. So if your’e thinking of setting up these id suggest that you’d get yourself on all these networks because it’s really important that you’d check these out!

The One fast last Essential that you need is a smart phone, not only like your Ipad it keeps you connected in so many ways, if you are considering blogging, id suggest getting Instagram because its kept me in tune with so many awesome people who i love to follow and in the fashion industry if your ever curious to those of the highest in fashion live life everyday. Not only is it essential you can keep in touch with trends , tips (Thanks to Apps Like Purely who will keep you RIGHT on trend with all the fashion designers you love) There are many other options a cell phone can do for you in the world of blogging, when I was starting out I kept tweeting like a maniac to start my blog , and it helps you stay connected in so many ways.


As you can see investing in good products + fan-girling social media will help you become successful in the terms of blogging and seeing where you can bring your future.

October Obsessions, What to love about October


Can you feel it already? It’s that time of year, it’s finally fall! Fall is not only the greatest time in the year, but the most changing time in my life as well. In this post, im going to dive into a few things im obsessing about for the month of October. I will breaking it down in little subsections to give you some fun insight to whats on my mind these days, as we head into October a time of pumpkins, fall, and sweaters.

First things first, after my Chicago trip i started making a list of all the things i want to do this fall, so i found this cute bucket list on Pintrest (by the way you should totally follow me I’ve even made it easy and made you guys a fall obsession board) The few things from this bucket list, i really want to do is Visit a pumpkin patch, pick apples, and of course drink apple cider. What kinda fall would it be without anyone of those things listed on that little bucket list! (Ps, if you are in Iowa and know of a pumpkin patch please let me know! I’m looking for one!)

Secondly, ill dive into fall fashion, as you know this is the time to bring out those great sweaters. My favorite items included in fall fashion are there are so many sweaters to dive into, but since i live in area not accessible to a lot of fashion (such as big houses like H&M, Zarra, Topshop etc) i did however find this amazing poncho from Gap (which you can see here) . I am a huge fan of the faux leather leggings, you can totally find them at target. I mean for a deal for faux leather target is your place!. See a trend here? Over size sweaters, and leggings (plus cute hats and apple cider!) Forever ago, i began searching for the perfect boot, i hate not seeing a lot of choices for a tall leather boot, but how ever i have been surfing Steve madden and found the ones ive been wanting and under $200.00 (which isn’t bad for fall boots because they can get super pricey). As again, ill state Huge Sweater, Leggings + tall boot = Fall love and my super obsession.

Thirdly + Fourthly (are combined): I’m going to dive into to Halloween, now we ALL love Halloween! I’m mean for real who does not love Candy, costumes and the ever tacky Halloween sweater (oh yeas im all about the tacky here) in my pintrest fall obsession board ive listed all kinds of fun Halloween ideas, decor and more pumpkin carving ideas. I am planning a Halloween scare off! I like home-maid Halloween items and themed jewelry (which most of it came from Super Sales, Yard Sales, and Claire’s after Halloween specials) You can check out I’m Your Present on Etsy she not only is the coolest but has the best choice in dresses and accessories for Halloween (like ps isn’t that pumpkin dress the BEST!?).

Lastly i am going to dive into how to stay connected with all of these Obsessions and trends. Have you heard of the Purely Fashion App? If you are like me, and crave style tips at your fingertips well now there is away! You can check out the Purley fashion app on your smart phone. (Or if you have the Iphone you can find it on the iTunes market free). You can follow your favorite designers (like who DOESN’T love being in-tune with the likes of Dior, Siriano, McQueen, Wang just to name a few). The App is so nicely designed and keeps you informed on trends, and whats going on in the current Season. I just love Purely not only it keeps me informed but it keeps me finding designers who i didnt know about that i fall in love with. So check out Purely Fashion App Today!
