#TBT. Any other extroverts going...

Back from when I was allowed to go outside. This was last month actually. I was hiking a lot as I prepare to (hopefully) make it up a 14er in CO with my outdoorsy other-Jessica @jessica_s_pappu. I was doing well for about 75% of this hike but that last stretch back took a lot out of me. 
Fun fact, for being from Texas I actually DON’T hate the cold. Cold + wind is a different story though.

Back from when I was...

I work in one of the industries heavily affected by the virus. For the first time in at least a year I had a job I loved going to, a company I believed in, and an industry that I’ve always wanted to work in. I loved my team and I felt like I belonged. Now, I’m furloughed, stuck at home until who knows when. I know it’s only temporary but it still sucks. This pause has forced me to do something I hate doing, to slow down. I hope you and yours are staying healthy and taking this time to focus on the important things: each other. Stay strong.

I work in one of...

Slowly working my way back to that “influencer” life. 🥴

Fun fact, I always HATED being called that. It often gets used synonymously with people that are shallow or are just self-centered, only caring about how things looked. I’ve been there. I’ve been where I planned on what to do based on “how it looks.” I’ve been depressed when my posts didn’t do as well as I thought they should. I spent money on outfits that I’d wear once, or plan outfits to wear in public based on what I’d be posting. I took it personal when I saw my follower count decrease. Eventually I’d had enough of my mental health tied to social media. I cleaned up 15000 “ghost” followers, people that followed me for giveaways or other reasons and didn’t ever actually care about my content, leaving people that I thought actually cared (and still lost about 1k). I’m definitely still learning the balance, and I often just lean towards not posting anything, instead of posting to have a post for the day or keep my content on your feeds. If you notice long gaps between my posts, that’s what’s going on. Quality//Quantity ☺️

Slowly working my way back...

Apparently between me, KP, and Dončić, only one of us will be showing up to the Mavs//Hawks game 😂 (swipe right) #MFFL

I’ve heard I’d look good with a nose piercing but I’ll just keep adding holes to my ears 😝 hopefully I’ll find time to blog about this (and my previous) piercing experience soon!

Dallas, you were fun, but I’m definitely glad to be back in my own house.

Striped Skater Skirt – What I Wore

I saw this striped fabric on the sale rack while shopping with my mom and I HAD to have it. I didn’t know what I wanted to make with it, and finally I designed a striped skater skirt with a wide band. I can’t sew, so my mom made it, and brought it to me on a trip to visit me. I instantly fell in love (again). Read on to see the details!

I wore this black and white skirt with a chambray shirt and black heeled ankle boots and socks. I wore my hair up to keep the focus on the punchy statement necklace.

Sorry for keeping the description short, I’m feeling under the weather :/
