pinterest outfitting

Pinterest is one of my best friends, especially when it comes to wasting hours and hours of my day just scrolling, looking, pinning... so I did that today even though it was a really pretty fall day (the trees haven't gotten the memo, though, so most of them are still pretty green), but I had been out earlier so I don't feel like I've missed a TON. Besides, it's just barely fall. I have lots of time to enjoy the weather, that's what weekends are for.

ugly outfit day

Today was “Ugly Outfit Day” so we showed up in hideous outfits. Some of us had some terrific outfits and I wish I could have gotten all of them together and been able to post them but of course I couldn't. Others didn't have great ones, but that's ok. Mine was... well... draw your own conclusions.
Sorry about the filter. I don't know what's wrong with the camera and I don't know how to change it. I'll figure it out someday. Oh yeah and sadly my grandmother sent me socks after the event, so I couldn't wear them which was sad because they clashed so horribly!

Oh and here are all the details on the outfit so you can wear one too!
Starting from the top: dark red cableknit headband thing* / hot pink, puffy vest from Old Navy / sea green zip-up hoodie from Old Navy / bulky cableknit sweater from...? / flowy, light green skirt from Target**, "water leggings" from Old Navy Active wear***, and teal sparkle socks from Target
*sorry, can't get it. One of my friends made it for me
**Cherokee, so it's not available anymore (which is O-K by me because Cherokee wasn't that cute anyway, as evident by the skirt)
***"water leggings" are just my name for them (I also call them "the Haley leggings" which is a long story) and they're not available least, I couldn't find them.

oh and guys: I'm really sorry. Fall photos are truly coming! I've just been so swamped lately what with tests seemingly all the time! and midterms, all of us clashing because we're home now that it's winter break...oh and I had a science and a math test today so... we'll see how well I did on Monday. I think I got a high B. ahh!

october // photos

Great news, guys!

You remember me saying I would try to get some photos taken?

Wait, which ones? I know, I said that at least two times. I think it was three.

Well good news, I finally actually got them done, no thanks to me. Lottie actually came to me, instead of me going to her. So that was nice. And I haven't seen the photos yet, but we got them done last Saturday, which was a huge burden off my back.

Anyway, I just let her take the lead and we had a pretty easy time of it.

Let's see, things I'd like to see happen in the picture-taking future...

commenting professionally


Is there really such a thing as "professional commenting"?

Confession: I, um, made that up on the spot.

Not the idea, the name.

But if you blog regularly and you're pretty dedicated to staying on top and you have at least one real-person follower, you might want to consider following these steps to having a professional first impression on all the blogs you comment on.

dress corilynn // thoughts on

Went back and visited Dress Corilynn.

You know, the probably blog.

Well, it's still probably, but I was reading through and one of her four most recent posts was one about remodeling her living room and being nervous about sharing it on the internet because it's just not her forte, and about her getting up the guts to share because of a quote from someone she follows on Instagram.

The lady (not Cori, but the one with the quote) said
Who do you decorate your home for? I sure hope it is for the people who live in it. I do it for these people right here. I enjoy using my talents and creating, it gives me joy. I share photos of my home not because I think it is the best, far from it. But if I get negative and think why share this? So and so has a better, bigger, cooler kitchen than me, It would paralyze me. Those thoughts are Satan trying to make me feel less than.
Well, that, like, stopped me for a second.

Um, what does Satan have to do with paralyzing and making you feel less than?

So, I was like is this lady (Cori, this time) LDS? Or, Mormon. 

Glad to find out that "about" pages aren't always utterly entirely useless (I'm being a little bit harsh -- they do tend to serve at least a little purpose the majority of the time. At least 50%, if only a little bit more), because yes she is Mormon.

But speaking of Mormon...

fall // photos

OK, guys, I'm planning on taking pictures either today, or Saturday, and then taking some more over Fall break which is this coming Monday and Tuesday, October 3rd and 4th. Yay! So excited.

So, finally, some more rubber-burning. I'm so into burning.


Well, that is that. Looking forward to it.

And as soon as I get those pictures up, I'm going to either delete or make private all of my previous content-only posts.

Because, really? Who reads those?

burning rubber: this fall

I know I said in my earlier post that I would be "burning rubber" and doing stuff, and being busy.

The thing is, I've been so busy...

If you don't know, I'm in high school. That should say something right there. If you don't remember your high school years or you're not there yet, let me just tell you -- it's school school school.

And don't get me wrong, I like school. It kills time in between weekends. But I don't like having too much of it. Yesterday I was lying in bed thinking of all the things I have to do. It's crazy.

My very first science test of the year  is this Friday (whoop whoop! I love the first test), so I need to study for it and since it's conversions  (gag gag), I'm going to have to study hard because I'm terrible at converting things. And it's the worst worst worst kind of conversions: metric/English unit conversions. Yech. All those liters, milligrams, feet, slugs (slugs?), kg, mL, cm... it's all this stuff bouncing around in my head!
