I’ll begin by explaining my title incase some of you don’t really understand it right away. It’s the name of the lipstick Lorelai Gilmore uses. Yes, that sounds crazy I know but I thought it was clever and anyway the name might not even stick. 😉 I have a slight obsession with Gilmore Girls (currently) as well as all things Disney (always). Actually I have quite a few obsessions, okay obsession is not a great word but maybe a great fondness would be a better way to put it.Ill give y’all some brief rambling facts about myself to give y’all some idea of who I am. I love books. I love Netflix (who doesn’t?). Through College I have discovered coffee is a good friend that will never let me down. I am living proof that shopping can be very therapeutic when done right. I believe in love at first sight and that if things are meant to be they will happen. I have had an amazing boyfriend for 4 years and counting. He and I have a dog named Chapman, he’s a mutt but looks like what in the south is known as an expensive bird dog. He’s really sweet and very goofy but smarter than he looks. He is one year old and quite possibly my best friend. Also yes, I am a crazy dog mom and he does have his very own Instagram (@chapman_brown) incase y’all want to follow him. He likes to take pictures (see below) so it was only natural he should be on social media.
I decided to start this blog mainly because I have always wanted to but was never really sure what to write about. I don’t live a lavishly glamorous life or anything like that. However, at times, I do think my life is interesting and at least one person might get a chuckle out of something I have to say. In general I am socially awkward; not so much that I cant function but enough to where I can make situations uncomfortable (LOL). Its fine though I have learned to roll with it and sometimes it makes for a good story. I sat down one day getting my nails done with a friend and we had a conversation about the stories from our hometown (it has one red light in the whole town, just to give some perspective). Those alone would be enough to write a fairly unbelievable novel, could be a hit like Lucas’novel in One Tree Hill ( yes, another Netflix Obsession). So I decided at least if I run out of cute clothes and outfits to post I will at least have a good story sans real names of course. Honestly, if I sit and think about it long enough my whole life has just been one unbelievably complicated story, but then again, isn’t everyone’s?
I have had an interesting past even though I am pretty young. Middle School was a horrible time. Even more than what is normal for most kids. I was bullied and it has caused problems even now in my adult life but I am working to change that. Its one of the things that I dint like about myself that I have the power to control. The girl that caused the majority of this pain now goes to UGA I think. She lives her life and I live mine and our paths have not crossed again. However, I have forgiven her, not for her benefit but for mine. Now I can move on from it and tell my story so that maybe some one out there going through something similar might read this and realize it will be okay even when it doesn’t feel like it. Becoming a member of Alpha Omicron Pi has greatly boosted my confidence and I have become more open and willing to venture out of my comfort zone. I know that some people view Sororities as something negative and only a way to buy friends. Maybe for some girls its also just a party outlet but its not to me. It means mush more and it also means that I am held to higher standard because I am associated with those letters for life, and that makes me proud. As a result of my life so far I understand now that people will always let you down because they are human but those that really matter will stick around or at the very least come back into your life. I’ll share my whole story at some point but its sad and serious and I’m not feelin’ it right now. I am thankful now for the things that hurt me because it has made me stronger and I am thankful for the people in my life that know what I have been through and still love me. I want to be relatable to my readers not just in the way I dress or how I do my make up but in how I live my life. This whole blog thing is very new to me so bare with me until I get the swing of it. I don’t have a schedule of when I will post but it will be frequent but sporadic and hopefully entertaining.
I hope you enjoy and please comment, share your opinions and stories! This is going to be fun! Happy New Year!
