Started From the Bottom Now We...Somewhere




When I started this blog a couple and a half years ago, I really wasn’t too sure about it. My mother always likes to remind me (mostly when I don’t want to hear it – but don’t tell her I said that), “When you started your blog you said you didn’t know anything about blogging or taking pictures, now look!” I remember her telling me then, “you will figure it out and you will catch on.” – Man, she’s always right. (Definitely don’t tell her I said that!). I have a point, I promise. More words after the jump....

How to Look Like You're Not Trying (Note: It only requires a little trying)

What? I always stand like this.

Happy polar vortex everyone! I know it's only Feburary, but I believe we can safely say this is the most over-used phrase of young, burgeoning 2014. I never want to hear it again. Never-ever-no-more.

Epic: Chic Outerwear Tips

Looking off into the distance, dreaming of warmer days. Or of sandwiches - because I was really hungry there. Can't remember.

When you live somewhere where it is cold for most of the year, you've got to have some epic outerwear because you have to don it for 5-7 months straight. Yep, most of the year it's cold and snowy and outside makes you sad and you cry and your tears freeze and then you cry on the inside and you don't stop until April unless it's still snowing and then you do the ugly cry where your bottom lip quivers as you look out the window and curse Old Man Winter and shake your fist at the sky and then you look crazy because you're a weirdo standing outside in the snow waving your fist in the air crying. So clearly, you need a good coat. If you have to go through all of that you might as well wear something that helps keep your teary insides warm and somewhat happy - even if superficially so.
