These Are Stressful Times

It's during super duper stressful times like these when I'm grateful for this blog because it gives me a chance to get away from studying and go to my creative outlet, which is ten times better than studying. If I had a choice, I would love to just take pictures, write, style clothes, and blog all day. But that isn't really a life because pretty soon I'd die because I'd have no money to take care of myself. Happy, huh? Sorry, I hope I don't sound depressing to any of you. I have 3 tests to take today and one tomorrow and a skirt to finish by Wednesday. AH! You're lucky you got a post. So yes, think of me because when this is posted and you're reading it, chances are, I'll be taking a test. Wish me luck! Thanks so much to all of you who read this blog...I love you guys. :)

3 more days until freedom!!!

It's Playtime!

I took pictures at a playground yesterday! Fun right? Ha, well yes it was. Except it got a little stressful when my camera batteries suddenly died and I didn't have enough pictures. So I drove home super fast, got some more batteries (I know, I'm dumb for not keeping them with me) and rushed back to the park and took a few more pictures in like five minutes before I had to go to work. Which I did make it to on time, thank you very much. :D (sidenote: It was just a little cold taking these pictures. Just a little. That's all)

So that's my story. And now I have to go and study because I have 3 tests to take tomorrow. And as much as I hate studying on Sundays...well it has to happen every once in a while. Sadly.

And can you believe the 30 for 30 is almost OVER?! I can hardly wait! Thursday will be the happiest day of my life. Or one of them. That I can guarantee ;)

Sooooo Close


I am finally updated! I hope that makes you happy, although it makes me even happier than you can imagine. It's a huge burden lifted. :) I am SO excited. Only 4 more days of 30 for 30. The end is very near.

Soooo...notice how I have 89 followers? Holy cow that is just crazy! It makes me really happy because I never thought my blog would have that many followers. It's so exciting. And since we're getting close to 100, I want to do another giveaway at 100 followers! And I'm not really sure what to give away...but if any of you are wanting to maybe sponsor a giveaway for your etsy shop or blog and give away one of your items, I think that would be so fun. You get free advertising and I have a giveaway! It's a win-win for both of us. So for anyone who wants to sponsor a giveaway, email me (kikicbrownee{at}gmail{dot}com) and we'll set something up. And more than one person wants to do this, then I'm sure we can do more than one giveaway. Because who doesn't love free stuff? And if no one emails me....well, then, I'll be kinda sad :( But I'll still do a giveaway because I love you guys that much. Ok, now go send me an email and then have a wonderful Friday. :)

Sweet Like Candy

Before I say anything, I must say this: Go see the Justin Bieber movie. It's true, I've fallen with a bad case of Bieber fever. I've become obsessed with his music and I just want to listen to it all the time! But seriously, the movie is actually really good! It's very inspirational and you just can't come out of that theater not loving Justin Bieber. Okay, I feel better after saying that. I hope at least one of you goes to see it because of me. ;)

I think this red belt was one of the best thrift purchases EVER. It just makes anything look 10 times cuter. When I bought it, it was way too long, so I just cut some of the end off. You can't even tell though so it's great. Red is really just a great color. Men like it best on women too haha...

Guess what?! Sarah from Wearing it On My Sleeves is in my sewing lecture class! Cool, huh? We're pretty much best friends now ;) But really, I think it's so awesome to actually be able to meet one of my blogging friends in real life.

And another "guess what?!" Only 6 days left of 30 for 30! I can't wait. I want my closet back!

I Feel Like a Proud Parent

I really am so happy with the way my pictures have been turning out lately! I think they've been undergoing a huge improvement, which is great. I finally got a tripod after going home this weekend so that's what I used to take these pictures. It's way easier than trying to find something to balance my camera on ha. :P

Guess what...30 for 30 is almost done! And I really just can't wait. It was super fun when it started...and now I understand why it's called a "challenge," because these last few days get to you. I can't wait to be exposed to my whole closet and go shopping again! Because seriously, I feel like I've worn almost every outfit possible with my clothes I picked out. And I think I left one of my items at home when I went so now I only have 29 to wear. And I can't trade it because I've already worn it! I don't think people realize how valuable clothes become once you only have 30, and then you lose one. And I think I just understood the point. Does this mean I can be done now? ;)

Picture Pooper

My camera was being dumb this day, and also it was snowing outside, so not exactly ideal picture taking conditions. Most of these pictures didn't turn out too great, and even these ones aren't my favorites, so you only get three today.

This skirt was the only 30 for 30 item I hadn't worn yet, so now I've officially gone through all 30 items at least once, if not twice or three times. I'm not even sure I can count how many times I've worn these boots during the 30 for 30. I definitely can't count how many times I've worn them since I got them! They are the best boots ever and my favorites, but the heels are completely worn down. But I love them so much I might just go to a shoe repair shop or something and hope they can be fixed. My love for these boots is strong. :)

Happy News

Soooo...guess what?! I was featured here! Some wonderful girls created a blog called BYU Style, where they post about the different styles going on at BYU and their personal views on fashion. Pretty much I think it's great. I love reading about BYU style, especially since I go there ha. You know what's even better? Writing about style at BYU! I'm gonna be guest posting on here whenever I get a chance or have something cool to write about. So I'll definitely let you guys know when I post, but you should just head on over to the website and check it out! The format is awesome and these girls really know what they're doing with fun and interesting posts to read. I'm so excited and honored to be a part of the BYU Style team. Can't wait!! :)

P.S. For all of you cougars out there, there's also another fashion blog run by BYUSA called YFashion. They just take pictures of fashionable students all over campus every day. Kinda like the Sartorialist. Anyways. Have a good night!

Ain't No Time Like This Time, Baby

Hey! Today was a good day because... a) I came home for the weekend, and b) I found a super cool place to take my pictures! Thanks to my ever so wonderful sister for taking pictures for me today. They were fun to take and edit. I've really been embracing the photography aspect of this blog and it's just great.

Basically I have nothing else to say really. I hope you all have a wonderful President's day weekend! What are you doing? Wearing? Who else cannot WAIT for the 30 for 30 to be over? Not me...I could just wear the same 30 items for the rest of my life (GAH! No way...that was sarcasm. Goodness kill me if I had to do that. But don't worry, the 30 for 30 is still plenty fun ha).

P.S. The title comes from the lyrics of a Carrie Underwood (my most favorite singer...I'm a bit obsessed) song called "This Time," currently stuck in my head ha. You can listen to her beautiful voice here if you want something incredible to hear. :)
