‘If you like the way you look that much then maybe you should go and love yourself’- J Biebs

So have you ever gotten an idea and then just pushed it away and it keeps on creeping back into your mind? Well here we are. Several months later, I’m serious. SEVERAL MONTHS. And I’m not going to be one to sit here and preach about how much I love myself. Or how I never struggle with any kind of self doubt or hatred. But at the same time knowing your worth is pretty powerful. And I am going to say that you are rockin’ just the way you are!

I believe that there is power in owning just how utterly amazing you are. Even if you just are admitting one simple thing that you like about yourself. For example: I really like that I give people the benefit of the doubt. It makes me, well me. But on the flip side there are still things I am learning to love. Like the fact thatI have the worlds craziest hair. It is super freaking curly and frizzy. (Especially with all of this dang humidity. Thanks Kentucky!) Lot’s of people see it and immediately state how jealous they are or how they wish they had hair like mine. But I  struggle with it. Slowly I am learning to like it. And that is the way to go. Small baby steps.

 

 

But loving yourself takes time. So I guess what I am saying here is that it is okay to not be there 100%. As long as you are trying you are the best! In todays world I think we all get so stuck on seeing everyone else on social media living their best life and get jealous that we aren’t living that kind of life. That so and so seems to just have the best self confidence. You don’t know that.

I would tell us all to stop comparing ourselves but that is so much easier said than done. So start with something simple. Post a Selfie of yourself that you like. Share a talent you might be hiding. Give yourself a spa night to just relax. Read a book. Go for a walk. Call your mom. Eat your favorite food. Have a 1 minute dance party for one. And remember that you are just human and you can work on where you want to end up. But most importantly, remember to love yourself. All of yourself. Even the messy bit. It makes things so much better when you are trying.

And that is all folks!

I know it is the middle of summer. But this weather is KILLING me. It is too freaking hot! & humid. I have officially decided I was made to not live where there is a hot summer. Because it is for sure not my favorite time of year. (Unless it is a pretty vacation in the Bahamas. Because I think I would be into that!) Gimme fall and sweaters and crisp air. Even if it is really basic of me. It is more pleasant to be outside when you aren’t breathing air..so I will gladly be called basic.


Today while I was getting ready to go to church I was tying my Cara Loren shirt when I walked into my sisters room as she was throwing her hair up in a top bun. We just knew that we needed to blog it. Because this is what the south is like in July. Humid to the point you don’t even want to touch your hair and you want to be as cool as possible. Also can we talk about how freaking pretty my sister is?! It is insane!

So lots of people always claim that we look nothing alike. I have had someone ask if we have different dads. And the only time people ask is at church on Sundays. We think that people would be able to tell today. Too bad we didn’t drive to Nashville. All I know is this outfit has become a staple. I change out the shirt and BAM! You have a whole new outfit. You can also change out the kind of skirt. Tying shirts is the best! I highly recommend it.

Also this boot is quite the fashion accessory. I highly recommend hurting your foot when everything is so dang hot!

Keep cool out there!

Well this week was a weird one. I have been pretty sick but I just barely started feeling better today. Which is good because being sick is probably the worst thing in the entire world. Especially if you still have to go to school. It’s been a rough one. But hopefully things will be better next week. It can only go up from here, right?

Guys, July in Kentucky/ Tennessee is basically the worst. And what I mean by that is that humidity is not my friend. Like if humidity was a person. I would punch it in the face. EVERY TIME I GO OUTSIDE. At this point I have given up on trying to do anything to hide the frizz that is my hair. Maybe come September I can look like not a hot mess. And make-up? Forget about it. If you want to do anything that isn’t really simple it will just melt off your face. I think you might be getting the point.

 

This shirt from Madewell is the perfect top for summer in the south. I want one in every single color possible! It is a cotton shirt so it breathes so freaking well! And it looks cute with so many different things! I have the dark green one that was on sale a couple of days ago (I think there are other colors on sale now!) and it is going to transition though all the seasons so well! And I am always on the lookout for shirts like this so I was stoked!

The leggings are from The Girlfriend Collective and you should just go check them out. These leggings are so worth it and so comfy (and a good $$ too) And who doesn’t love something that supports a good cause. I just threw my hair in some braids and choker and called it a night! But I didn’t know that I was g0ing to be able to go somewhere so freaking cute like this mural in Nashville. If I had known I might have thrown on my overalls or a flowy skirt. But I am happy with this too! Plus, I had to have a couple pictures taken of me because it’s a cute wall and my name is Alexandra. Those two things are made for each other!

 

I hope you have a nice weekend.

Also you look hot.

Treat yo’ self.

Ever feel like you want to do all the things and you succeed only like .5% of the time? Me too! But slowly things work out! Blogging is something I need to do for my own sanity. If no one were to read it, I would still try and post. It’s super therapeutic for me. Even though I don’t share a ton of personal things. I still feel like writing word and putting them out into the universe is important. Words matter. I will always say that. ALWAYS!

Most of you know I am going to school full time while also working a full time job. Just add on that both of those things are in a different state so lots and lots of driving and gas. AND lets just add that I pulled my achilles tendon and I am not able to drive right now. Luckily I have the greatest family in the whole wide world who are willing to drive me to school. So crazy awesome shout out to them!

I just thought I would share some of my tips for organizing any aspect of your life. Just remember this works for me and it really might not work for you! Don’t get stressed. I feel like sometimes we look at someones life through their Instagram filter and no ones life is actually that cool. Promise. My life is messy and I will never pretend it isn’t. I just want to be as authentic as possible. So here goes nothing.

Always write it down. If you know you have something you need to buy, or do, or send. WRITE IT DOWN. I am a huge believer in lists. Even if it is something as simple as washing your hair. (This is me. I have to write it down or I will just drown myself in dry shampoo) And if you have stuff due make sure you give yourself a good amount of time to do said assignment. I will always say you should have a planner that is big enough to fit everything and anything. Mine is huge and I am so happy about that. It is honestly perfection.

Make sure you give yourself a break. People don’t wake up one day and just have their lives organized and perfect. That just isn’t how it works. But don’t get upset when you have fall backs. They are going to happen. Above all just know that you are perfect the way you are even if it is a little messy. Life is messy. That’s what makes it so cool!

I love you all!

Happy 4th of July! It has been such a great day! I hope yours is pretty great too! And full of yummy food! Everyone deserves to have super good food on a holiday like today. But if it hasn’t been a good day! I’m sorry! You are still great! I know holidays aren’t always easy for some people.

Today has been so chill I can’t stand it! My family went to a book store and we found some pretty great things including Princess Diaries 2! Which makes me more excited than probably anything else. I am actually watching it as I type this all out! Because what says Happy Birthday America like a movie about not America? We also have been eating some great food!

Other than that we have just been singing Hamilton while wearing our custom made shirts from  A Way With Words Boutique. How talented is my sister?! She just free handed these shirts on Saturday. We chose Hamilton quotes. Mine was going to say ‘I’m not throwing away my shot’ but the cameras were just so freaking cute we chose to leave them off! If you are needing any kind of custom made jewelry or shirts make sure you go check her out.

Stay safe everyone! Also, I totally told you I would blog more than once this week! BOOM

Xoxo
