Own It

No, I do not have broken arms and yes, my shirt is on backwards but that’s fashion right? Weird stuff, HA. HA. A few years ago, I stumbled upon a photo on Tumblr and became very inspired to try this look! However, I cannot show you the original photo since I never was able to find it ever again… but anyway.

Sometimes, it feels goofy wearing this specific style blouse, and you get those “what the heck looks” but own girl, OWN IT.

This look is so chic!! It’s fun because it’s not your typical blouse, so it spices up that full button up blouse you only know how to wear one-way. Adding a bold necklace can also add heaps of creativity to this whole “new-way” outfit.

You’re welcome, in a “Sadie Saxton voice”!!

I just need to be blunt about this. Yes, life is about finding someone to spend it with but that’s not all life is about. Why is it that, a lot of writers pieces that I’ve been reading lately are about “how to” get your ex back, or “how to get make him fall in love with you”. Unless I am not looking in all the places, recently not a lot of people are talking about how to enjoy singleness. Yes, they talk about being alone, or even lonely if you want to go down that road but I’m talking about singleness strictly. Not in a “it’s complicated or friends with benefits, single as eating dinner for 1.

After reading that first paragraph you’re probably thinking, “yeah, this girl is definitely single.” You know what, that’s totally fine with me. Granted, this the Twenty-First century and our world has very different views on relationships these, however, chivalry is NOT dead. Call me old fashion.

I don’t want a “how to” book or blog to tell me what to do to find a relationship. It’s cliché because it is TRUE, that things happen when you least expect it. Have you ever heard of anything forced work out brilliantly… I haven’t. It’s like you’re in pool of sharp rocks with waves crashing on top of you, it’s going to be hell if it’s forced, it won’t work the way you want because it did not happen naturally. When you’re in an unhealthy relationship or relationship for that matter and never had a chance to experience the single life you are only hurting yourself later on and or in this present moment.

When you have that alone time; when you’re single, you get to learn so much about yourself, what you want in a significant other and so much about your own character. Not to mention, you get to do whatever you want, when you want and how late you want. If you don’t experience that how are you going to know how to handle being alone when you’re partner is busy for a couple of hours, days or heck even weeks. How are you going to handle not having your phone buzzing twenty-four-seven, how are you going to handle finding directions by yourself or even putting that necklace on for all my ladies out there. How?

I know it may look cute in the photos and from what they preach to you but honestly at the end of the day, don’t you like just spreading wide on your bed, alone without anyone else being there crowding your space? Of course I want that later on but right now, in my singleness I have so much to mature on, work on and learn on for myself. During your single years, being selfish is ok because you only have yourself to worry about. Stop worrying about how to get your ex back, they’re an ex for a reason. Stop forcing something that should not be forced if you want a lifetime commitment. Let nature take it’s course and if it’s meant to be. Embrace your single years; you never know if you’ll ever have that opportunity again.

Spice up your look!

First off, I want to say thank you to Danielle from Rocksbox and sending me these pieces! They are so fab, I am so excited to wear them (: You did a great job!

If you have not heard of Rocksbox, they are a fabulous jewelry company & you may be missing out. How it works is, you go to their website, sign up and let them know what your style is; Simple, edgy, preppy, n/a, etc. Then they have special designer(s) who pick out certain pieces just for your taste and they send out a box of goodies to you in about a week or so. You pay $19/month and you have an unlimited amount of trade in. What I really loved is that not only do they custom pick these pieces for you but also have a little hello message when you open up your package, I definitely believe that adds a special effect! There is a catch, though, it is not a bad one. These pieces are for you to wear on a loan until you are ready for your next box unless you want to purchase them. I truly appreciate that because you are constantly having a variety of jewelry and always can have something new to spice your look up with. You never really know what you are getting since you do have someone who picks for you, however, if they know your style they usually always get it to a T. I would definitely recommend this product if you are addicted to jewelry and or wanting to broaden your accessory horizon.
