Broken Ray-Ban

I had the weirdest dream and I am not sure what all happened in it but one detail definitely stuck out! My beautiful purple ray-ban sunglasses got broken!!! My worst nightmare…. okay not really but it would be really upsetting if it happened in real life. I love the color purple and they are prescription sunglasses so they help me see as well haha All I remember is that the hinge that holds the arm of the sunglasses on my right side of my face just broke. It was bent the wrong way or too far? Not sure but needless to say I was upset and then I woke up wondering if it really happened or if it was just a dream.

Here are my fancy shades that I love so much :)


Fashion Friday – Aishwarya Rai: Cannes 2014

aishwaryaAishwarya Rai looks absolutely stunning in this Roberto Cavalli gown. She is very famous in the Bollywood scene if you are not familiar with her. The detail work is just so intricate and beautiful that it really makes you take the time to admire and take in the dress as a whole. I love how her hair is styled and the earrings are a nice touch, not too big and not too small.

Fashion Friday – Lucy Hale: Billboard Awards 2014

lucyhaleI am loving everything that Lucy Hale has going on in this picture! Her ombre hair is lovely and I wish I could pull it off as well as she does. The multiple colors used in this Alex Perry dress surprisingly go well together and doesn’t clash at all. The lace makes her look so sweet and likable. The clear clutch is interesting and not your typical clutch you see on the red carpets. Her shoes were able to match the dress which is a victory and is able to tie the entire outfit together. She is just too adorable!


You are probably wondering why is this post yelling at me?? I will tell you! Ladies and Gents… my father who told me time and time again about how moving out was not a good idea is the same man who is now letting me move out! You heard it right! I am MOVING OUT! It has been a long time coming!!! I have never been so excited in my entire life! The whole paying for bills and rent seems a little overwhelming but as OCD and organized my roommates and I have been about everything.. I am sure it will all come together in the end! The house is awesome with 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, at least 1900 sq ft. We finally did it! Everyone has a job and we have a roof over our heads! Who would have thought my dad would finally listen to reason?!?! Apparently he does know how to come around and understands why I need this to happen. Miracles do exist people!!

***UPDATE: Of course the universe likes to play cruel freaking jokes! At the end of June I started working from the offices of a web development company that is helping my employer on marketing, website things, etc. Soooo of course when I told my boss that I have been wanting to move to Winston Salem since we made the move in February… I was for sure that I would be working close by to whatever house my roommates and I got. HECK TO THE NO!! He suggests that I am now to continue working in Charlotte (1hr 23 min away from the house in Winston) for who knows how long.. “Until the rug and furniture data is complete….” This could easily be until the end of the year. But the thing is since this company is working so closely with my employer… I will most likely be a main point of contact for data, images, etc. so it only makes sense for me to be in Charlotte vs. Winston Salem.  This little job change would have been handy when I was making a 2 hour round trip commute daily for the past year… The timing is terrible!! So what is a girl to do but to make this work! I have been through worse.

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, right??

Stubborn as ever

Dear Dad,

You are being ridiculous and I want you to know that. I can’t think of anything that can possibly please you or meet your standards. All I want to do is move out of the house that I have been residing at for 25 years. Don’t you think that is long enough?? This is not an impulsive move. I have been working my butt off to graduate college, find a job in my field, and etc. Why do you think it has taken me until now to want to move out? Not that you want me to move anyway. My friend Brittany has finally landed a job. Full time! So now that we all have jobs we can proceed with moving in together. Would you rather me move in with a guy?? These are two girls that graduated from Appalachian State with me and we have been friends ever since we met in Boone. I am not moving out of the state. I will only be 1.5 hours away which is not terribly far but far enough for me to have my independence back. I am sorry you can only think of worse case scenarios. I am a very responsible daughter because you want to know why??? I have a clean driving and criminal record, no accidental children, no drug abuse, and the list goes on.

You can’t expect me to stay with you in your house forever. I need a place of my own to do what I want. Not that I am going to be doing anything sketchy or bad. I just want to be able to hang out with friends who I don’t always see, go out at night (no curfew), etc. I have lived by your rules for long enough and have done my fair share of helping with family financials. So I don’t think it is a big deal when I say that I am ready to move out. My roommates and I all have jobs. We are not reckless with money. We all get along and will do our part to make this work.

Can you please keep an open mind and let me do this? If you continue to be negative and refuse to give me your blessing and permission then I have no choice but to defy you. Not because I want to but because you are giving me no other option. You have no legal right to keep me at your house. I can leave at any time but I am not ungrateful or rude like that. I am being more than courteous by informing you of my future plans. Sorry you can’t accept it.

Your frustrated 25 year old daughter
