excerpt from my journal no. 2

Friday, August 28, 2015

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
here is my second journal excerpt, this one is about how much my life has changed since the beginning junior year. I decided to write it because now I am a senior and I am so different than before.

Everything is so different
from last school year. 
Good and bad.

The good things are that I'm happy
with who I call my friends,
I'm happy with myself,
I run a great blog,
I'm growing with God,
my hair is short again,
my style really reflects
who I am,
my eczema has cleared up,
I'm using natural beauty products,
and I've been writing a lot.

The bad things are that 
some of my friendships have fallen apart,
my acne is annoying,
my ankle hurts at random moments in time,
and I've stopped working out.

All in all, the good outweighs the bad, 
and I have remained happy and stress-free. 
I really love my life.

xoxo, Aubs

Hey babes. Today I did a little shoot with the newest addition to my closet, a beautiful dress from Free People. I stepped outside into the chilly August weather and turned on some folk music. I was really inspired by the hues outside that matched the hues in my dress, I also loved the way the shapeless dress lied along my curves.

I hope you enjoyed these photos just as much as I enjoyed shooting them. Enjoy the rest of your day, I believe I am scheduled to post a journal excerpt tomorrow, so be on the look out for that! I love you babes!

summer drive in

Thursday, August 20, 2015

Babies, hi!! I know I said I would try to blog this weekend and I didn't, but I am here now!! This blog post isn't really gonna be anything special because my photos are from my phone.

On Tuesday night, Amanda and Lauren slept over. We bought cookie dough at 11 at night and tried to fit all three of us in a queen size bed, so that was eventful. Than, last night, I went to the drive in with a big group of friends. My mom's car's interior lights don't turn off if you keep the trunk open so that was super annoying, but other than that I had a wonderful time!

I promise I will try and put on a cute outfit sometime this week and blog about it, I have been slacking lately! Sorry babes! I love you!!

xoxo, Aubs

open your eyes

Thursday, August 13, 2015

hi cuties!! I'm so pumped for this post, mainly because I looked super cute yesterday but also because Amy and I went to Downtown Ann Arbor!

Once Amy and I got to Ann Arbor, we made our way to Lab to get iced green tea lattes and than we set out to explore a little bit. For dinner we ate at an Asian noodle bar, which was pretty good. All together, yesterday was an event that will be going in my 2015 memory box (which I need to add a lot to).

Outfit details: Brandy Melville top, Free People bralette, Forever21 shorts, sunglasses from Zumiez, and a braided belt

I hope you are all enjoying your week so far and have a great weekend! I'm thinking about making a post about my book since I haven't done that yet! See you very very soon!!

love always, Aubs

excerpt from my journal no. 1

Monday, August 10, 2015

Hello beauties, I am going to try something new and I'd love your feedback on it. I am going to start putting journal excerpts up on my blog once a week (if I write that week). I think this is a cool and unique idea, and I really hope you feel the same way.

When I was little, 
there was a branch on the pine 
tree by my swing set. 
The branch was low enough
 that my feet would hit it, 
if I swung high enough. 
I loved swinging and hitting the branch, 
it was one of my favorite summer activities.

Than, one winter 
my beloved tree branch 
broke off due to the weight from the snow.

I realized that the tree branch is a metaphor for life.
The tree lost something, maybe it's soul or arm; 
either way the tree still lives.

We lose things or people in our lives, 
but just like the tree we still live. 
We get through things just like a simple tree.

I hope you enjoyed this excerpt from my journal because there is more to come. I'll see you soon!!

xoxo, Aubrey

silver lining

Wednesday, August 5, 2015

It's only 11:30 AM and so much has already happened. I woke up at about 8:30, which is crazy for me. Last summer I'd wake up at about 1:00 PM everyday, I guess I am turning a new leaf. I cleaned my room and literally just did a photoshoot, outside, with one of my new Free People dresses I got for my senior pictures.

 I also just noticed that I reached 2,000 views!! Holy crap, I love you all so much for this!! I never thought that my blog would reach so many people, even people who are from different countries. I am so amazed and thankful for each and every one of you, I really hope you have enjoyed my blog thus far and continue to enjoy it in the years to come. Now I am going to stop being sappy and get to the photos.

Both my bralette and dress are from Free People, the information for each of them will be up on my FPme page shortly. Now I am going to get back to making naan pizzas for my mom and myself. Thanks again for 2,000, I love you!!

xoxo, Aubrey
