12/11 BLOGGERS, WE JUST HEART ONE ANOTHER

I had so much fun at this blogger meetup hosted by lovely beauties of the bay. I didn't get to make my rounds but I got to see so many wonderful faces that I've missed so much! Do you go to blogger meetups in your area? How do you liek them? Are you friends with your local bloggers?

Bahaha, I freaking love you Lily. The glasses are definitely a go. I'm going to invest and get some Moscots. They are just too dang gorgeous. But I definitely need to get my passport so I can take my ass up to Canada and we can drink and cuss like sailors.

Joy, you should definitely come out and visit us in San Francisco! You would love it. It's so chill and lovely out here! But aren't you in New York? That place is lovely and I'm sure there are great groups of bloggers out there!

Dude, it's some of the best things I've done! I thought I was having a reaction to my makeup so I decided that I wanted to change my makeup and face washing routine. Now, not wearing makeup is taking a great affect and so's my face washing routine. I think I might continue this even through fashion week. I'll be scared walking out there with no makeup but we'll see. HAHA. Hope you didn't drool in class.

Okay, you already know I heart you...but oh my goodness, I really really heart you! You know I love me some Apfel. If I meet her, I'll die. I'll just die. I already met Shelly...if I meet Iris, my life will be complete.

HAHA, I know. I've got to post an image of the back. I'll take a picture and post it soon! And yes, I'm totally there with you: men, junk food and liquor. Praise. HAHA. Yes, you'll be seeing me in spectacles during FW, most definitely.

Girl, I met you look completely gorgeous without makeup! And I'm so self-conscious without makeup but I'm getting better at it! :)

Aww honey, that's because there is no HD cameras showing all my flaws. Trust me, there is muchos muchos acne, haha! That fur stole I found at a great vintage shop nearby. It's amazing and it was a great steal! Yes, I will post the back of the dress soon. I'll probably wear it during NYFW along with my spectacles so you'll see both!

I'm so glad you opened your heart Chelsea. It's one of the hardest things we can do as humans but it truly is worth it, regardless of the damage that could ensue. Sharing your heart with someone who deserves it is an amazing feeling and always rewarding. You'll learn something no matter what happens. I hope you'll open up your heart again and lessen the FWB<3.

Marissa, I completely agree. Posts that show a blogger who isn't done up and seemingly down to earth are some of my favorites too. It shows more personality and gives a "real" perspective of a "blogger". I'm glad you're pulling for the spectacles too. They are definitely going to be a staple in my wardrobe!

Gahh, I'm such a sucker for exposed brick walls. Whenever I look at apartments or daydream for interior inspiration, I'm always drawn towards the brick walls man.

Seriously, Tiara, you must attempt at getting ready every single day you work. It motivates me to do more work and get my errands done because I'm already ready for my day. I think it's important to start your day correctly, like you would if you were going to an office. Try it for a week and see how productive you are. I hope it works for you dollface!!

Congrats on the new job doll! That's wonderful news. I know exactly what you're going through but at least you're doing what you have to do. Work it out!!

1/16 EARLY MORNING LIGHT

Gina's blog, Morning Hair, is a great, inspiring blog. We all know that we aren't perfect when we wake up. Stanky breath, boobies flailing everywhere, hair a mess...you know what I mean. So, I thought I'd share with you what I look like when I wake. Thanks for the great comments and I'm glad I passed on my inspiration. Thanks again Gina!
