Scream Queens Inspired

I didn’t watch the whole Scream Queens series because I mostly just sat there like “???” the whole time. It’s so bad that it’s almost good. Emphasis on the “almost.” Their wardrobe is absolutely amazing though. The use of fur and sparkles gives me life.

Wore this look to dinner at The Penthouse in Santa Monica and got some intrigued stares. *Chanel Oberlin voice* I’M A PRINCESS, OK.

Blue Monday

Today happens to be one of the most statistically “depressing” days of the year. Though I don’t give weight to useless myths like these, today has made me think a lot about happiness. Happiness is not a choice. People who believe in this school of thought have never experienced all encompassing, crippling depression. These people shouldn’t comment on something they don’t understand. I do think we make choices that either facilitate or hinder our happiness. 2016 is going to be a year of not making choices that coincide with the latter. It’s not cool or trendy to dwell in unhappiness.

I plan on starting this new lifestyle and mindset by simply getting rid of extra stuff in my apartment e.g. clothes I haven’t worn in years, old textbooks and the like. Clean surroundings, clear mind. Next, I’m going to invest more time into meaningful friendships. I’m nearly 22, the time has passed for trying hard with people that don’t try hard for you. I left these juvenile tendencies in 2015. I’m ready and open to the experiences that 2016 has in store.

This lip combination is a dead ringer for “Posie K,” the new Kylie Jenner lip kit color. I didn’t achieve this look on purpose but when editing photos I noticed that it was a dupe. I lined and filled in my lips with MAC’s “Whirl” and then placed Lime Crime’s “Faded” on top.

Real Friends & No More Parties in LA

I sometimes wish I had an affinity for something other than fashion so that I wouldn’t have to attend crappy parties in LA in order to network and build connections. There’s nothing I hate more than schmoozing. Clubs in LA are not glamorous. They’re incredibly boring; the DJ ends up playing “Jumpman” a few times during one set. It’s actually all kind of sad. If someone has no use of your presence, they’ll treat you as subhuman. I’m not naive enough to believe that New York or London is any different. I think it’s the industries: fashion, music and film. People in LA lose friends faster than they lose the tautness in their foreheads from Botox. Though these “friendships” are often lacking substance starting from their birth. I’m not immune to this friendship restructuring pattern. The constant gaining and losing of people in my life has led me to become extremely self-reliant. I have three people I can count on no matter what, one being my sister. But everyone else is in the periphery. I would not expose the depths of myself to anyone but those three people. Self-reliance is such an important skill to learn and develop in college, especially if you’re living in a big city.
