Stop Apologizing: Love Yourself

“Oh, I’m sorry.” 

Wait……. Why am I sorry? That person bumped into me. 

“I’m sorry.” 

Why did I just apologize for laughing? That person is laughing too. 

 

I do this all of the time and if you don’t know what I am talking about, I am talking about the fact that I apologize for being me. I can’t help myself and it’s a very bad habit. I can’t be the only person that does this. I recently made a promise to myself that I am no longer going to apologize for being me. I’m going to start living my best life and stop second guessing myself. I’m going to laugh however I want, I’m going to walk freely, I’m going to smile if I want to. I have a right to be on this earth, just as much as anyone else. Apologizing for everything that I do is something that I do as an insecurity. If I apologize, that means that I am lesser than the person that I am apologizing to. I know that I am not any less than that person. I am a human being that has emotions, I am a human being that walks down a street, and I am a human being that compliments something that I like. If you are like me and apologize for something that you didn’t need to apologize for, I want you to stand with me and stop apologizing. Tell yourself that you’re allowed to laugh, you’re allowed to breathe, and you’re allowed to be yourself. Promise yourself that you are going to stop saying sorry for no reason.

 

I would like a friend of mine for inspiring this blog post (you know who you are).

10 Must Follow Instagram Accounts

I am not sure if it’s the double taps, or the fact that the layouts are so intriguing, but everyone seems to be infatuated Instagram (including myself). I am constantly on the popular page just looking for new accounts to stalk.

You really loved when I posted all about my favorite bloggers to follow, so I thought that I would do a spin off post from that. Today I have 10 Must Follow Instagram Accounts for you. If you already follow some of these people, we are that much closer to becoming besties.

Summer Fashion

IMG_9617

I know that it’s not technically summer yet, but here in Bakersfield, it has already been over 100 degrees! Just because it’s gross outside does not mean that I need to look gross.

I am in need for some cute summer clothes, but something affordable. Where do I go? If you said Forever 21, you are absolutely right. How cute is this off the shoulder top that I picked up from there? Guess how much it was? Never mind I will just tell you… $12.90. Yes, the mind was blown, you’re welcome! I love Forever 21, not only are they affordable, but they have a large variety of plus size clothes. I know that every time I walk in there, I am going to find something cute. That tends to be good and bad. This palm tree print on my shirt has been everywhere lately. Everything about this top is just so adorable and appropriate for summer time! This top is off the shoulder and very light weight, it also cinches in at the waist to give a flattering look to the body. I absolutely love it!

What would summer be without sunglasses? I picked these cute ones up from Charlotte Russe for $5.

You can find similar ones here.

There you have it, my fashion find for today!

The Perfect New Years Eve Party Dress!

Hello you gorgeous person, I hope that you are here to get inspired. Today I am bringing to you a fashion post! I am seriously in love with this dress!! As soon as I laid my eyes on it, I knew that I had to have it. This dress is perfect for a New Years Eve party, or just a party in general.

Some of you may think that this is a lot of sequins, and you are probably right. Two years ago if you would of told me that I would be wearing this dress, I probably would of laughed in your face. It’s a good thing that my outlook on fashion has changed. I’m not afraid to stand out, you shouldn’t be either. I live to sparkle and shine, and I won’t let anything stop me from doing so.

I would like to give a special thanks to Trina for collaborating with me on this post. You are seriously amazing and I love you so much. 

 

This gorgeous dress is from Charlotte Russe, if you didn’t already know, they have a plus size section. I am so in love with all of their clothes, they have a great price range and they fit! My dream is to one day become a model for Charlotte Russe, seriously. What a dream come true right? Imagine becoming a model for your favorite clothing store. ugh…I can see the cameras flashing now. Charlotte Russe, if you are reading this, I am interested! I don’t know if you can tell.

This dress is the “Plus Size Sequin V-Neck Bodycon Dress”. Originally $42.99 and now on sale for $30.09. There is also a  gold and a silver color. I personally love the maroon better.

I love the way that this dress just compliments my curves, it’s not too tight, but tight in all of the right places.

My tights are from Torrid and my booties are from Charlotte Russe.


I would like to thank Trina once again. I love you so much! She is an amazing photographer,  you can check out her work here!
