I have felt very disorganized ever since vacation, I can’t quite get my ducks together, so, yes, I realize it’s the middle of September and I’m just now posting my August in Review, but…LIFE.
Top 3 Blog Posts
#1 I Was Ghosted Ooh, that’s a little sad. There’s not even a picture. I will say now, just about a month later…of course I am surviving. But I am sad. And what I just have to keep repeating to myself is “my feelings don’t matter…what I want doesn’t matter.” I mean, sure, they MATTER, but not in this situation. Am I sad? Sure. But it doesn’t matter. Are there things I wish I could tell him? Sure, but why? They don’t matter. Are there still things I wish I could do with him/talk to him about, etc? Yes, but it doesn’t matter. That’s the sucky part about break ups. One person says “it no longer matters what you feel or what you say or what you want…because *I* no longer feel that or want it.” The End.
#2 Some Thoughts on Accessorizing Oh my gosh, this feels like a year ago!
Favorite Blogger Outfits
August was an odd month. Vacation, break-up, I wasn’t online as much as usual and very little was interesting me. So there is only one favorite blogger outfit and it really interested me! I saw it right at the start of the month and it set the bar for everything I saw after it, and just nothing lived up to it. So for August, only one Favorite Blogger Outfit.
Melanie from Bag and a Beret in this inexplicably amazing outfit. I want to wear this tomorrow. And the day after that. And the day after that. I want to wear it every day. That question I always ask myself when I’m on the fence about an outfit or buying a new item – “Is this the person I want to be??” THIS is the person I want to be. Bold. Not precious. A rule breaker. Easy. As in “with ease,” not like “simple.” Thank you, Melanie, for setting the bar high. I hope I can live up to your role model-ness someday. Even just ONE day!
I got this teeny tiny little hair straightener…for my teeny tiny hair. It’s finally just long enough that I can get a straightener through the top part and make a smoother look. Cuz while I’m enjoying the ease of super short hair, I am not a fan of the tight waves I get at this length. So at least I have another option now. I like it cuz it heats up super fast and does what it’s supposed it. Two thumbs up.
Remember my sadface when I cancelled my MoviePass app? No movies for me this month.
Wow, August – not such a great month for “favorites”! I only read one book and it was…okay. I liked his other book better, The House on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, and maybe in comparison this one just didn’t…you know. Knock my socks off. But it was definitely an interesting story, a page turner, he tells a story well. I just didn’t LOVE it. But we can’t love everything. That doesn’t mean they’re worthless. Did you read anything you liked in August??
Totally random and unrelated to the blog, but so so lovely.

I can’t say I was sorry to see August go. I think of it fondly, cuz vacation. But there was just a cloud over everything for me. Now we’re flying through September and I feel like I’m just finally getting myself straightened out and settled in after vacay.
