Photo Diary #1: where have I been?

Warning: Heavy cat&selfie content 

Unfortunately, I've been M.I.A. in the blogging world which breaks my ol' little heart to say. I have such high intentions and regard for this little space on the internet and I hate when I begin to neglect it. You guys can not begin to fathom how much I love creating and making ideas come to life for all you to see. Before school started I sincerely had the intentions to post every other day, but that obviously didn't last too long *sobs* I am quite the pesky perfectionist and tend to have the highest of standards, but yesterday quite recently I've been trying to cut myself a little slack. 

If I post twice a week or even if it's just once to begin somewhat of a consistent schedule with all of you I think I would be genuinely happy with my progress. I honestly give anyone a standing ovation and extra brownie points to the bloggers that balance full time school/work and still manages to blog. It isn't as easy as it seems. 

*loudly applauds and throws brownies at fellow bloggers* 

I still have a few ideas up my sleeve ranging from OOTD's to recipes to God knows what else my brain will come up with and I can't wait to share them with all of you. October is coming up and that will definitely stir the pot of inspiration. Am I the only one who's excited?! Halloween is bliss~ If you have any post ideas you'd like to read please comment below I would love to read them! I truly thank anyone who's stuck along with me as a follower or anyone who is simply reading this. It truly means the world to me~ 

I hope you enjoyed the irrelevant selfies and the adventures I have with my cat~ Heh heh I just could not help myself 

Much love,

Craving Sweater Weather

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

All images above were found on Pinterest~ 

I will be honest with all of you and say I absolutely hate cold weather. I completely detest it and I too often take for granted the all year round sunshine in good ol' Florida. Oh, but how I adore knit sweaters and cozy jumpers~ 

Call me a hopeless romantic, but I can't help but romanticize curling near a crackling fire place and sipping on a mug of hot chocolate with fluffy marshmallows~ I don't even like marshmallows for God's sake, but it's just not the same without the cute little marshmallows (Please tell me I'm not the only one!). Something about fall fashion makes me delirious with joy~ 

Before I stray any further from topic above are just a few of my favorite fall/winter looks! Watching my blogger feed with all of you strutting your fall fashion has made me grow quite envious! Heh heh~

Excuse the rubbish quality photos as this was a last minute idea. To be completely honest with you I was extremely hesitant to upload this post because I only like presenting my work in the best possible light. It irks me (and that's stating it lightly) when I can't present something of mine to my 'perfectionist' standards. A too late realization had me thinking how am I ever going to be able to look back and see how much I've improved one day if I always reject my work. So perfect or not here we gooooooo. . .

This little dress is definitely one of my staples in my wardrobe. It will always be my go to outfit when I can't be bothered with picking out a full fledged look and laziness is a good excuse as any other to wear a dress. I know there are some girls who are apprehensive on wearing dresses especially if there is no special occasions involved, but if you're currently under that mind set my friend I'll be the first one to tell you. . .you are wrong! I swear wearing dresses are a lot more easier than wearing a pair of your favorite old fashioned blue jeans! Dresses can easily become a staple to anyone's wardrobe as it you can easily bring a variety of looks to the table without you even trying. Be it a bold vibey look or something innocent and feminine. 

Now maybe high low dresses have went out of fashion, but I'm still in love with this look It is absolutely perfection when we're in this awkward season between summer and fall. Particularly with this dress I love how part of the skirt is sheer I think it adds a special something. You can never go wrong with a high waisted anything~

On another plus side walking around with a flowy trail behind you always makes you feel magical or maybe it was just the creepy abandoned house. . .


Strawberries&Cream | The Body Shop Review

Friday, September 5, 2014

Please excuse me while I tell the whole world how perfect The Body Shop is. Unfortunately, the nearest location is almost two hours away from where I live (but, not for long though as I'm moving quite soon ;) More on that later though!) which is quite a bummer as I am in love with everything they have to sell there. Although my family and I make an effort to make a trip to the Florida Mall as they have the nicest shops in the area including the beloved and well known Body Shop~

Moving on to my purchases I bought two mini body butters (two for $10 which is quite a bargain if you ask me) which are absolutely heaven by the way. They are very creamy and extremely moisturizing. Your skin simply drinks up this formula leaving your skin feeling silky smooth without the greasy consistency that many body butters seem to have. I swear after using this my skin is as soft as a baby's bum~ I honestly hate that phrase so much. . .who made it up and why were they touching a baby's bottom?!

The two fragrances I chose to get were strawberry&moringa. I could smell these all day and never get bored. What I love about Body Shop's products is that they smell very 'natural' and not overbearingly sweet. Moringa is a very fresh floral scent and is perfect for wearing on those hot summer nights. Now the strawberry body butter smells absolute like bliss~ If you want to smell like a walking strawberry put this on your body.  If you haven't noticed I'm not too great at explaining scents quite yet as I've been sitting here for the past ten minutes smelling both of them and I'm still at a loss of words. What I can tell you though, without a doubt these two body butters are divine~
