A Wonderful Day

Chris was attacking me with the camera during this shoot. The last photo was one of the many awkward close ups he had of me laughing, trying to get him out of my face. I love him. 

Today is a wonderful day for the Farnes family because Chris's brother Kellin gets home from his mission today!!! I believe I mentioned two weeks ago Devin got back from his, and two Novembers ago Sheldon got back from his. Now I met Sheldon before his mission very briefly, but today marks the first time I will ever see Chris with all his brothers at the same time, and that's huge!! I've know Chris for almost four years so for this to be the first time is kind of crazy! 

I love all of Chris's brothers and I'm so excited to have them all here! Chris has been freaking out all week, so anxious to have them all to fish with and play soccer with. Today is basically just wonderful. 

This is a new shirt from Rue 21. I love Rue 21 because you can get great shirts on major clearance. I'm never really been one to spend lots of money on clothes (all my pants are from Walmart) but just because I like things cheap doesn't mean I can't have style. People overpay for clothes a lot in my opinion. You just have to know where to look for the cheap stuff. Also, I know I feature these shoes a lot but I'm literally obsessed, I've worn them every day this week. I need another pair of black booties so I can switch it up a bit though... 

Well, I hope you all have a wonderful day like we are! 

Shirt: Rue 21
Skirt: Costco
Shoes: Kohls

The thing I love most about this shirt is it's Aztec print while being my favorite colors. Here are some other Aztec print items that I'm in love with:

A Quick Message of Love

So internet friends, this is hard for me to say... but I've been struggling a lot lately. As the majority of you know, I do suffer from depression and lately it's really been hitting me hard. Chris has been a huge help, like he always is, but some days it's just so difficult to think positively and believe I can get through it all.

But I wanted to say something to all my readers, family, friends, and random people of the world who happen upon my blog...


Life sucks. And it will always suck. But even though I may not know you, I KNOW that there is someone out there who loves you and supports you and will never EVER give up on you. 

I've always had a great support system with my family, but it took me a while to realize that they could help. You may feel alone sometimes as you're going through life, but you never really are. Someone out there loves you. God loves you. Family loves you. Coworkers love you. Roommates love you. Neighbors love you. Even strangers love you sometimes when you show them kindness! 

Never give up on yourself because you are loved. If you don't believe me, remember that I love you and I'll always be here for you if you want someone to talk to. I've been there, I've been through hell and back, and if you feel like you're stuck in your pit and can't make it out please find one of those people who loves you, me included, and tell them and they can help you ease your burden. 

I'll always be here for my readers, because you give me life. Writing saves me and the people who read my writing bless me more than they'll ever know. You have always been a part of my support group, and I will always, ALWAYS, be a part of yours.

 Don't give up. You are loved.

A Little Sparkle

Hello friends! With this post I am excited to announce Fashion Fridays are back!! Basically this means I plan on posting one fashion/personal style post a week and I'll make them go up on Fridays. I actually started this about a month ago but I skipped a week and didn't make it official, but now it's official, so you better pester me about it if I ever forget (kidding, because I probably will). Also, I would love to see your Fashion Friday posts too! Whether it's on your blog or just social media, please leave #FashionFriday on your post so I can look through and check those out.

This is a more casual outfit. This picture was actually taken on a Friday (weeks ago, mind you) and Fridays at work are casual days and we can wear jeans (well the actual rule is that you can wear jeans any day IF you're wearing a company logo-ed shirt or jacket, and I do have a jacket, but I honestly enjoy wearing my skirts, so I just take advantage of casual Fridays).

I love this shirt!! My sister gave it to me a few years ago, so sorry, no links to buy it, but I do have exact links to the cardigan and shoes. As you know I don't wear bright colors often, but I am okay with white, and I LOVE a little sparkle. I grew up in the dance world and the fact that this shirt has literal sequins on it is the greatest thing of my life. While it is much brighter than my normal attire, I'm in love with this shirt because it has a little sparkle, a little color, but for me, it's not too much or over the top.

Cardigan: Target
Shoes: K-Mart

For fun, here are some sequined tops under $75 that I would love to have:

Hey friends, so as you know my Happy Tuesday posts are always just like the above list. No explanations, just the simple things in life that have made me happy the past week. But I just want you all to be aware that I am currently struggling. If you've ready any past posts on my blog you've probably learned by now that I suffer from depression... and it's been bad lately. We're working on it and this week has already been so much better than last week, but I wanted to tell you that making these Happy Tuesday posts has been helping me a lot. Simply taking time to think about the little things making me happy has changed everything. Finding gratitude for the little things and being a bit more positive is doing wonders for my emotional health. I didn't write a post last week and I probably should have considering how bad things got last week, but I really want to encourage my readers to participate in Happy Tuesdays with me. They are helping me and maybe they can help you too. Even if you're late (like I was today) on writing your blog post, tweet, Tumblr post, Instagram photo, or Facebook post, be sure to tag it with #HappyTuesdays so I can see it too. 

I love all my readers and I hope that your week is amazing and you remember to find the small positive things in your life that make you happy.

Pink, Blue, and Curls

This outfit post has a lot of colors, which is weird for me because I don't wear bright colors often. But it's June now and colors can be fun in the summer. 

This is one of those outfits where I can't tell you where anything is actually from, because I've had them all forever. So below I've posted some similar pieces so you can recreate this look yourself if you want. 

Here's a fun fact for you, this hairstyle was almost completely heatless. Yeah, how cool is that? So if you've watch my most recent YouTube video, I slept with my hair wet in the last hairstyle and this was what happened... mostly. I had to fix a few pieces with my curling iron but only on the right side. So that was cool.
